Aren't free prints the greatest? I just never get tired of them. Here's the latest and greatest that I have found :)

Eighteen25 always has a great free print for us! This one is for Teacher Appreciation Week.

I have always loved this quote from Majorie Pay Hinckley. Ladybird Ln. made it into a perfect print for Mother's Day!

Living Locurto made 3 different business cards for us to personalize and print off! Love them!

Thirty Handmade Days made us this gorgeous print with such an important message!

Mother's Day Sign

I have really enjoyed making wood signs lately.
I thought it would be fun to make one for Mother's Day !
I searched and searched for quotes and finally asked my facebook friends for their favorites. My friend
 Meleah came to my rescue with this,

 "A Mother's love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible" ~Marion C. Garretty

I had to shorten it though for it to go on my sign.
Here is the result....
I am really digging this color right now and I might be obsessed with fabric rosettes so of course I had to add a few of those :)

I am adding this project to these link parties

Free Prints! Easter Edition

Easter is my favorite holiday and I'm really sad that after tomorrow, it will be over for another year. I would keep my Easter decorations out all year round if I could, I'm just that much of a weirdo :) I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with family and love.

Download this great print and 3 others at Nifty Thrifty Things

I love this gorgeous and simple print from Madigan Made
I found these super cute little deer over at Running with Glitter but they were made by Free Pretty Things For You.
Catch My Party made not only these party circles, but tented cards and a really cute banner!

Antsi-Pants made this Subway Art Print in a few different colors, love it!

And if that's not enough free Easter Prints, head over to Dollar Store Crafts, they even featured me!
