This past year has seen me making a pillow, a soft toy owl, collaged boxes, yo yo necklaces, pretty chocolate wrappings, earrings, magnets and now party invitations. It's been a fun ride.
Dolly's fifth birthday is coming up and we are preparing for the Princess and Knight themed party. This afternoon we spent a couple of hours at the library where Dolly read and played while I found inspiration in 3 amazing card books.

For the party invitations I'm using mostly resources from home dating back from the past 10 years such as pencils, stamp, card stock. Images are from a 50 cents op shop book. I did purchase 3 new items out of my FUN budget. A fleur de lys hole punch $4, a gold permanent marker $3 and a box of 50 gold pins for $2. They were not needed, these were wants however they will all last for years. Each invitation is costing me roughly 10 cents to make. I have 2 created and 8 to go. I'm enjoying this and finding it so much fun.

I like my cards and how they are so different to the regular shop bought invitations. Each one will have a message on the pretty back (not shown), inviting a child to the party stating it's a Royal Party for a Princess being held in the Royal Gardens and please wear your Royal Gowns and Suits for Cake and Fun.
Is frugality making you more creative? If it is, do you enjoy it, resent it or even dislike it?
