The Graphics Fairy

I found Karen  with Graphics Fairy from my Get Your Craft On Tuesdays. She posted this project and I just fell in love with it.  It looks simple to actually do, but won’t look like a simple project when you’re done.  Plus with the holidays approaching, you may need a few extra of these……..unless all your furniture is distressed like mine and it doesn’t really matter……although water rings are hard to get off.

She has a great tutorial on her site.  You could have them done in time for the holidays…..

I love the rustic/french look.  Even better in that urn.

If you’re not a numbers fan, she has SO MANY vintage graphics to choose from.  All FREE!  She does have a few rules, so be sure to read up on them before going too crazy.

The possibilities are endless.  I’m loving this scrolly looking label.

I am drawn to anything eggs like flys drawn to………well you know what I mean.  I like em.  Eggs.  I like to look at them.  I like to eat them.  I may do something really crazy and make my coasters with the egg graphic.  Crazy talk.

eggsgerman2  Oh my…….this looks like you could use it for a blog header.  birdheaderbfairyofficeredo1You all know I have a peeping tom problem……I LOVE seeing other people’s homes.  I am so thrilled with blogging because so many people show us what they got…..decor and furniture people.  Gasp…..get your mind outta the gutter. 

Karen has another blog too called FleurishMore stuff to swoon over.  

I hope you’ll down load a few of her graphics, make something cool and then link it to my Get Your Craft On next Tuesday!

FYI- My feed/reader is messed up.  Not sure if it’s my fault or the feed/reader/burner etc….just re-sign up again.  Please.
