Friday Link Lovin’ is Lovin’ Downloads

It all started with a post on Oh My Handmade, a printable download for a Christmas card.  Much cuter than anything you can get on the photo websites. I always do my own cards in Photoshop, so I loved not having to start from scratch. Yep, that was the starting moment…

Next thing I knew printable downloads were everywhere I looked. They were jumping out at me! (well, kinda…) Beautiful downloads. There are so many amazing artists blogging and sharing their art with us! I had pulled a few things for this weeks link love, but when these downloads kept appearing to me, I took that as a sign that I need to link to these today!

Here are a few of my favorites,

1. Via Sew Mama Sew, I came across these great tags for reindeer food at Crafty Carnival. We are going to have a few holiday parties this year and what a great idea for a hostess gift to give! There is also a Dear Santa Letter and a Mrs Claus Cookie Label.

2. Awesome Art from Free Your Soul: the free art project, like this one by Naoko Stoop.

3. Owl Lovers Paradise! Have you seen this awesome 2011 calendar from My Own Barn?? It’s really cool. From 30 owl images, you make your own calendar. One of a kind!

4. I am a sucker when it comes to Dr. Seuss! Visit Kind Over Matter for  this inspirational download with a Dr. Seuss saying from 74 Lime Lane

5. A website full of beautiful downloads is the online magazine NONPAREIL. While I was ordering my Christmas cards, I ordered some note cards using this Chocolat Inspired Printable! I can’t wait to get them!

6. And the piece that started it all…..  Name Your Design’s Christmas card download, via Oh My! Handmade.

7. A year of free downloads! Yes, I had to read it twice, too. It’s almost too good to be true! Oohmoon is uploading a new image every day for a year. I got hooked by this lovely winter owl.

8. Ok, ok, I have to stop… But I can’t stop before I show you the gift tags I’ll be using this year. They are perfect for my color scheme! The artists at We Love to Illustrate shared these with us. And last but not least the adorable deer. ahhhh….

Ok, must go work on my advent calendar. Yes, running late on that project!
