Cover Verse: An Irish Blessing May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face And the rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand. Inside Verse: God bless you with the joy of His presence and the gift of His love on St. Patrick's Day and always.

I have a bit of a 'vintage ephemera' obsession of late.  I am in love with the pretty journals I see on Instagram that use old botany/floral images and vintage ladies.  So I have had a look around the internet and found the ten best free vintage ephemera printables / digi scraps sites for use in your planners, smash books, journals, collage art, mixed media and scrapbooks. Have fun browsing, scrapping and journaling through my 10 favourite ephemera freebie sites.

Patty Hill was a kindergarten principal in Louisville, Kentucky, developing various teaching methods at what is now the Little Loomhouse;[6] her sister Mildred was a pianist and composer.[7] The sisters used "Good Morning to All" as a song that young children would find easy to sing.[8] The combination of melody and lyrics in "Happy Birthday to You" first appeared in print in 1912, and probably existed even earlier.[9]

My Plan, Do, Review kit continued to sell, but I had another collection of useful templates bubbling in my mind. Before I had even ever started this blog, I had been using a system called the Ultimate Life Binder as a way to keep track of my life. It was my central hub for setting goals, measuring my progress, and generally just being aware of where I was, where I was going, and what I was working on a day to day basis. It was comprised of life-management printables that I had printed out from my findings on the web and some that I had created myself to suit me even more personally.

Adding more to the digital download will increase the happiness of the person who buys your products which is super important.

And so, in June 2015, I released my Life Binder product to the world - meaning I listed it on Etsy and told my email list about it. Then...my phone started "cha-chinging" more than it ever had before! By the end of the month, I had reached $1000 in sales! That blew my mind. I had made more in one month with one product than I had in the last 18 months! 
A couple of years ago, I shared this post about an incredible resource for printing vintage botanical art prints – Botanicus – the free, Web-based encyclopedia of digitized botanical literature from the Missouri Botanical Garden Library.  When I found that resource, I couldn’t believe how many incredible and totally free images were just out there on the web to be printed and framed.  It’s a budget decorator’s dream!  I really didn’t think it could get any better – BUT IT JUST DID!
Have I made my point yet?  They are not kidding when they say bioDIVERSITY.  There is literally every form of living thing available to choose from.  Butterflies and water fowl, more frogs, turtles and lizards than I ever knew existed.  Weird fancy pigeons, big and small game animals…it just goes on and on and on.  The only bad part is you can’t search for specific images but hey, it’s free!
Hello planner fans.  I have been wanting to design these for the longest time, since they are more of a planner accessory rather than planner stickers and I hadn’t found the right digital paper for these tab dividers.  I think you might enjoy these foldable tab dividers, for either your art journaling, planner organization or bible journaling or other papercrafting use.

This feature will allow you to install color fonts purchased from the Silhouette Design Store or other font designer.  It’s specifically for fonts that have a variety of colors, embedded shapes and transparencies.  I believe it is probably a great feature for SVG  designers.  Note:  The font shown is one I created only as a sample.  I would give this a 4 star rating but there are other designers or crafters that are probably falling off their chair with this new feature.

The real kick in the backside came as I approached the middle of the year. I was getting closer and closer to the Fall season - a time when I knew that I had two big trips coming up - one to Europe and one to the States. I'm a traveling girl. I get on the plane at least once a year. However, this time, I was ready to write a slightly different story for myself. I was ready to feel differently about myself. I had a picture in my mind and in it, I was sitting in a cafe in Paris drinking a latte and feeling successful, feeling at peace because I had a business that was making money even while I was on vacation.

The programs we tested range in price from $10 to $50. Our favorite greeting card software for Mac landed near the bottom of that price range at $13 and has the best selection of templates and graphics. Some of the $40 programs have better sharing options and editing tools, but if you don’t need thousands of templates, we suggest checking out the low-cost software we tested.
As someone who buys all art off Etsy, please offer both. My printer is not good. I have made the mistake of buying the download and been super pissed. I don’t understand buying the download if I still have to go to staples or something and get the right paper and have it printed a certain way. Sorry for the rant but I’m a big fan of buying the physical print and so many people don’t sell them anymore!!
On July 28, 2015, one day prior to a scheduled ruling, Nelson's attorneys Betsy Manifold and Mark Rifkin presented new evidence that they argued was conclusive proof that the song was in the public domain, "thus making it unnecessary for the Court to decide the scope or validity of the disputed copyrights, much less whether Patty Hill abandoned any copyright she may have had to the lyrics". Several weeks prior, they had been given access to documents held back from them by Warner/Chappell, which included a copy of the 15th edition of The Everyday Song Book, published in 1927. The book contained "Good Morning and Happy Birthday", but the copy was blurry, obscuring a line of text below the title. Manifold and Rifkin located a clearer copy of an older edition, published in 1922, that also contained the "Happy Birthday" lyrics. The previously obscured line was revealed to be the credit "Special permission through courtesy of The Clayton F Summy Co.". Manifold and Rifkin argued that because the music and lyrics were published without a valid copyright notice as was required at the time, "Happy Birthday" was in the public domain.[38]
Kids are all about their birthdays, and we have hundreds of birthday cards for kids, including age-specific cards and featuring favorite licensed characters from Disney, Star Wars, My Little Pony, Spider-Man and many more.

There’s so much to love about our funny, cute, and photo upload cards, but we also have hundreds of designs from our favourite brands.

There’s also tons of Star Wars and Game of Thrones birthday cards and a wide range of birthday cards for kids with Frozen, Trolls, Paddington, and The Little Mermaid.
East Bay Inn has a ton of potential but seems to just miss the Mark. Beautiful room with authentic brick wall and elevated ceiling, then you see the peeling paint, dated tub and plastic toilet in the bathroom. They have a great concept with a daily happy hour but it amounts to a few scatter plates of cheese and veggies and a bottle or two of wine setting out in the lobby. There is a parking lot right next door but it was full, so we ended up sweating our luggage a block and a half from the city lot down the way. Not horrible, but it could be so much more! Great location though.
Still, if you prefer to use your own photos and images and want to create quarter- or half-fold cards, Greeting Box may be a good fit. Since Greeting Box doesn’t have photo editing tools, you need to use another application, such as Apple’s Photos, to correct red-eye and crop images before you upload them. Once the images are in the software, you can only drag, layer, rotate and reverse them. There’s also a transparency option, but compared to Hallmark Card Studio’s design suite, which includes more effects and filters, Greeting Box’s tools are very basic. This program’s biggest benefit is its price – it only costs $9.99. Other greeting cards programs cost between $40.00 and $50.00. Our best pick, Canva, is a subscription service with a fee that, over time, can make it cost even more. While Canva has a limited free version, it can be frustrating to only have access to some of the features and graphics, and Greeting Box gives you full access with your initial download. Also, you can order more clip art directly from Greeting Box for a few extra dollars.
Few days of the year are as important to us as a friend or loved one’s birthday. Whether we want to admit it or not, we expect a certain level of special treatment on our birthday and we also expect happy birthday wishes from those who are important in our lives. When your friends, family, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend or other important people in your life have a birthday, we usually send them a birthday message greeting them and wishing them well. However, we often don’t give the birthday wishes careful thought. And on a day that is so important and personal to so many people, why not take the time to craft a clever, heartfelt, romantic or funny birthday wish that can help make their special day a bit more special?
In that moment, I realized that if I really believed that I had created something amazing, something that I knew would help people, then I had to stick to it. I knew that there was probably a million more people out there who would LOVE my Life Binder as much as the 50+ people who had bought it in the last 30 days, but it was MY job to make sure they knew about it.

"Happy Birthday to You", also known as "Happy Birthday", is a song traditionally sung to celebrate the anniversary of a person's birth. According to the 1998 Guinness World Records, it is the most recognized song in the English language, followed by "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow". The song's base lyrics have been translated into at least 18 languages.[1] The melody of "Happy Birthday to You" comes from the song "Good Morning to All",[2] which has traditionally been attributed to American sisters Patty and Mildred J. Hill in 1893,[3][4] although the claim that the sisters composed the tune is disputed.[5]

I priced the Plan, Do, Review kit at $10 - much more than any printable price I had listed before. This was a significant baby step because I was learning that a comprehensive collection of printables was something that I could not only charge MORE for, but it was also something that would SELL BETTER. As that kit started to sell more than any of my other "cheap" printables, I realized that people were a lot more excited to buy my $10 product than they were to buy my $2 or $3 products. Somehow I thought that my cheaper stuff would sell faster. I was wrong and in December 2014, because of that $10 kit, I made $254.50 in sales in that one month, which was so exciting for me since I had only made $186.00 the previous 12 months combined!
I’m so sorry about that and yes, it’s because you have Yahoo email, they have been blocking my emails along with many other bloggers. I’ve been working on a fix for this for weeks now and I think we finally have it corrected!! Hopefully you will have an email in your box from me today, in about half and hour our so. If you don’t, please let me know! I really want to get this fixed for everyone!
There are so many amazing things to do and see in the historic district of Savannah I almost don't know where to start. I'll start with my opinion of the East Bay Inn which is located on Bay Street right across from the river in walking distance to everything you are going to want to see in the historic district. The East Bay Inn is a beautifully restored cotton warehouse withh oversized rooms (the second floor is pet friendly) with a slightly haunted vibe. The entire staff at the East Bay Inn is extremely friendly and they all go out of their way to make sure your Savannah experience is everything you want it to be. I would like to specifically recognize David for his ability to make the guests feel special during their stay, he might be one of the nicest people I've ever met!
