Commons:Currency Currency is one of the most widely-available artifacts — practically anyone in a country using a certain currency can digitize it using a scanner. It's also highly informational, often pertinent not only to the currency itself, but to the subjects that it depicts, such as national symbols. This makes it a good candidate for inclusion in Wikimedia Commons. However, like other government works, the copyright status of currency designs varies from nation to nation and sometimes even between currencies in the same nation.

Live, Laugh, Love - Free Simple Printables — Dream a Little Bigger My mom was really into rustic signs when I was a kid. When I say really, I mean REALLY.

The Graphics Fairy and The Buttons You may already know about this amazing blog, it’s actually pretty popular. I like to think it’s been my secret source for some time and only now, because I just can’t keep it to myself any longer, am I willing to share it. It’s The Graphics Fairy, a blog full of free vintage images. I don’t know how she does it, but she finds the coolest old graphics, most in full color, and posts them on her constantly updated blog for FREE! (Did I mention they’re free?) And if you want a background for your blog, she does that too!

Washi Tape Stickers & Art This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience and to assist in the maintenance of this site. I’m a huge fan of all the beautiful washi tape out there but a lot of the time, I find myself just hoarding it instead of actually using it. I wanted to figure out a way to make some sort of washi tape wall art without too much hassle or expense! I also wanted to maintain the translucency of the tape. I know I could have just stuck the washi tape to white paper and then cut it out but I wanted the “look” of washi tape, which, for me, means it has to be translucent. I was more nervous cutting out this project than I was when I cut out my Montessori Sandpaper Letters!

Stencils Library 1. Heart Stencils Rain Blanken These printable heart stencils are perfect for making a patch, screen printing a shirt, or even spray painting a jewelry box. everynothing wonderful: Ruthless Organizing: Tools and Tricks I know it isn't always screamingly obvious but we're a pretty 'crunchy' family...even more so in the past few years. Which is another part of the problem. We needed to get real and stop trying to save, reuse, and repurpose everything in sight. Not that you shouldn't, but that it wasn't working.
