i am so excited to introduce a new monthly feature: free printables!
christina carroll of rooted in paper and i are collaborating on a monthly print to offer my fabulous readers each month, as a big happy THANK YOU!  and by “collaborating” i mean christina designs something and i say “i love it!”.
i have loved christina’s work for a long time.  in fact, i love it so much that we have had christina design our fliers for the stitch market for the last couple years!

i’d love for you to get to know christina a bit!  she’s married to kori, who she’s known since high school, and is a new mom to adorable gavin, possibly the cutest baby ever!  she has the best of both worlds – she’s able to be home with her son and work from home, turning her sketches into graphics and filling her shop with amazing goodies!  she finds inspiration everywhere, even in her constant remodeling of their home!  i always feel like instagram gives you a deeper look into people’s lives, and i love following christina on IG!  and i love the name of her shop, rooted in paper, from ephesians 3:16-21: being rooted and established in love…
the free print is 5 x 7.  my printer isn’t that great, so i went to a local office supply shop, and they printed 2 on cardstock for me for a whopping 41 cents!
i just dragged and dropped the image at the top to my desktop and saved to a flash drive, and took the flash drive to the printer.
how adorable is this print?!  i love all the elements:  chalkboard, nautical, summery colors – so fun!
