{free printables}

You’ll find lots of free printables and lots of creative ways to use them when you visit Mothball Charlie.     She is gracious enough to show us all the different ways she’s using her free printables, just in case you need a little direction.

Fabric Scraps~

She thought she would try a fabric stiffening method to make fabric chair tags using her cricut, but it didn’t turn out so good.  So she did what any creative person would do. She moved on and found a way for it to work.  Her free printable for this template is on her site.

many may remember her from one of my Creative Girls in my holiday gift guides.  I adore her pet portraits.  Maybe I should get one of my Mabie……….maybe?  :)  Her etsy shop is full of great art for your home……very reasonable too.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have this much talent?  I suppose we all have our strengths, it’s just how you work it.

    I’ve been over to mothball Charlie’s and I’m already in love with the boy’s RED bedroom…Great solution for putting color into the room without committing all the walls to it. Blessings!

    These printable are wonderful. Now that I have learned to use my printer to transfer them onto fabric….the sky is the limit. Many thanks for sharing.

    I absolutely LOVE this site. I look forward to getting my e-mail with the link. Today, I just love the Lisa Leonard necklace! I have 3 children and my daughter is going to be delivering my first grand baby in May. What a way to have that kind of necklace and add an initial each time a new grand baby is born! I’m drooling.

    Thanks for all your work.
