Lace, Ribbon, Yarn, Trimmings Spool Organizer Fiber Holder Free Printable

I worked on these several days last week but I hesitated to post them because just as I was about to, I found that someone had stolen the spools that I had posted previously and was selling them on etsy : / Of course when discovered she had to remove them but it is just such a hassle to deal with. It seems like it happens so often that I swear that someday I am going to start a wall of shame and post names of all who do this.

I had these images from an old catalog but they were pictured with mending yarn wrapped around them and half the logo on the top and bottom were missing and they also said they were spools for mending yarn. I wanted them to organize my fibers with... so I had to rebuild the logo's how I thought they would have been and replace the wording with something that would be appropriate for lace or any fibers you wanted to wrap them with. Then because they were catalog images I needed to put a background on them that would "look like" a real antique. These have absolutely been changed enough to hold there own copyright. You are free to use them for your personal use or even to print them and use in your art projects for sell. However, they are not for use in any digital download of any kind.

Click on the links below to download them. 
These first ones are my style.
Then for you Shabby Chic lovers I did these.

I had a hard time deciding between the white and the aqua background so I just decided to post both.

Free Printable Halloween Sign

I have really been distracted lately, but I do want to thank all of those who have left anonymous posts lately. I am thrilled that you have found me and that you plan to check in regularly :) I wish I could get back to you but when I hit reply it goes to "noreply".

One thing that has kept me busy is that my DIL has had one thing after the next come up so I have been baby sitting a lot. Being grandma comes first and I have to say... I love having them around even though it has led to a decrease in my art time :)) However like many of you I have started to work on my Halloween projects. This is a little sign I made some time back and had been giving it as a bonus at my etsy store. I decided to retire it and I had not used it much so I thought a lot of you might like it.

This is really easy to make too. To make it look authentic start by printing it on brochure paper or matte finish photo paper. If you use a laser printer it will be more durable and less likely to succumb to splashes of liquid that surly would be present at a Halloween party. Then use spray glue to attach it to a light weight matte the gift boxes you would find at the dollar store and cut it out. You can make it thicker by putting the two owls (that have already been put on matt board) back to back. Then just sand the edges with a emery board to give it a smooth die cut look. I also added several different wordings that you can cut out and layer over the one on the sign so that it says what you would like it to.

Feel free to pin the thumb above but please do not pin the actual download. I would like everyone to stop by here to download it so they don't miss all my other fun free downloads.

Where's the B! (Typewriter Keys)

OMGosh! If you saved the typewriter keys before 8-3 go back and save it again... I can't believe it but I had forgotten the "B" and had an extra "R" where the "B" should have been : / I also what to thank DeeDee for bringing this to my attention so I could get it fixed :)
