New Printer and The Graphics Fairy

Bill got a new printer not too long ago. 
It has been so much fun for me. 
For him?
Not so much.
I discovered The Graphic's Fairy several years ago.
I wanted some vintage images of angels for Christmas.
I tried printing them on the big copier at the school. 
It didn't work.

I hoped that our new printer would work for one of my Halloween ornaments that needed repair. 
Somehow I'd lost the graphic off of it.
I headed over to The Graphics Fairy to see if she had the image that had fallen off my ornament.

She did. 
It ended up being too big so I downloaded and printed this one instead. 

She had this little guy too.

The images are available for free for your own personal use. 
You cannot make up a bunch of crafts and sell them on Etsy.

This site is perfect for me because I adore switching out prints for the season.
 This pumpkin seed packet was sized to fit into a 5x7 frame. 
It adorned the powder room wall during the month of October.

I'm excited to pop this guy into the frame for Thanksgiving.

As soon as Bill got his laptop hooked up to the new printer he upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10.
Now the computer won't communicate with the printer. 
He's a little frustrated that searching on-line hasn't yielded a fix. 
My Mac works just fine with it. 
If I remind him of that, he gets a little bitter. 

 Here is the link so that you can have as much fun as I have been having. 
The Graphics Fairy
 She has hundreds of vintage and antique images. 
Have fun.


  1. I love the Graphics Fairy so many awesome free printables!
    Have a wonderful week, Katie!

  2. I love the sweet little postcard you downloaded! I never think to print out seasonal images, but now you've got me thinking!

  3. Thanks Katie, what a helpful article. My partner and I usually create a bunch of hand made Christmas cards for family and friends. The Graphics Fairy will prove to be an excellent resource during the festive season. They have some beautiful high resolution images. There's a vintage Santa that we'll definitely be using. Here's hoping Bill gets his printer fixed before you use all his ink.
