Stuff to Buy at Goodwill: Make Your Own Fancy Cards!

 Here is another post in the "Stuff to buy at Good Will" Series!

Check out the aisle with the office supplies and cards!
You can often find whole wedding invitation kits for a down and dirty price.


 You don't have to have a wedding in your future to use the lovely paper, notecards, stickers, and other great stuff in those boxes.

There isn't a lot of need to have fancy personalized stationery!
And....certainly, there is NO need to spend a lot of money on such a little used luxury!

BUT....you will probably have need to send a greeting card once in awhile!


All it takes is some time spent with your word processing software....
Some creative use of monograms....
Or...a favorite quote!

Here,  the lovely invitation photo for a graduation was glued to the invitation card stock.

The quote is printed on the card and a very personal card was created!















Need a quick baby gift...what could be cuter than note cards personalized with the baby's name?
Mom and Dad have stationery to send thank-you cards...



Aren't  these yellow cards....
so cute?










No birthday gift on the shelf for a girlfriend...or no time to shop....?
Print out some cards with a monogram.....quick....fun....inexpensive and useful!





Oh....and here are a few fun quotes that you might use if you do decide to get creative!


Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History!

Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry.


She who leaves a trail of glitter is rarely forgotten!

Playing dress-up begins at age 5...and never truly ends!

Take My Advice.....I'm Not Using It!

A woman should be two things: Classy and Fabulous!

Style is the perfection of your point of view!

Fashion fades, only style remains the same.


If you don't have anything nice to say, come, sit by me....



So...I challenge you to send some SNAIL Mail once in awhile!
