Shortly after I added a printable set of vintage French documents to my Etsy shop last summer, I had a request for a printable set of vintage documents in the English language. It has taken me about six months to source and purchase just the right vintage documents to include (and a few extras) but I am pleased to now have this set available in my shop.
At the end of that month, I was at a turning point again. I had made $1000 in passive income, yes, but I knew it was mostly due to marketing to my list. How was I going to continue to make that amount in sales? I knew I couldn't keep marketing the same product to my same list month after month. At that moment, I was at a fork in the road where I almost went down the path of "Oh, maybe I'll create something new and sell that next." Luckily, I remembered a piece of advice that prevented me from doing that. I remembered Denise Duffield-Thomas (the Get Rich Lucky Bit#h lady) talking about how women have a tendency to keep creating something new over and over instead of sticking to one core, amazing product and finding endless ways of selling the SAME thing.

The second is a receipt on behalf of the Wrought Iron Range Company of St. Louis, Missouri. The company manufactured steel ranges and kitchen equipment. The receipt is made out to J. Stanley Adams & Company of Maryland, who purchased 28 pounds of grey iron on July 10, 1921 for a total cost of $14.00. A PAID stamp, dated August 12, 1921, appears on the lower half of the receipt.

Hi Angie! Just wanted to contact you about using a couple of your vintage portraits on our church website. We’re doing a promotion for our church directory, trying to encourage folks to get in and get their photos taken and I wanted to do a slide using the couple that could be a wedding photo and the one of the grandma in the garden. While it’s not exactly a “commercial” use, it’s a little more than a “personal” use so I wanted to be sure and have permission before using them! I’m a big fan of your blog and Facebook page and have gained so much inspiration from you! Thanks so much!


Note that not all of the images in their vast collection are public domain, but they have millions of images and thousands of those are now available in the public domain, in high-resolution! To filter for those that are public domain and free for unrestricted use, just click the “Show Only Public Domain” checkbox in the left sidebar (under the Filters tab) as you’re searching or browsing one of the many image collections, and/or look for “Free to use without restriction” below the image. Some images have multiple sizes to choose from, so click the drop-down menu to see all the available sizes and download the high-resolution TIF files that NYPL has generously provided.

Don’t know how, but I just came across your blog and I am having a ball looking around at all the wonderful images you have posted. You really inspire me, because I too am a country gal and from one country woman to another, you have great ideas and taste!! I want to thank you for all the “free bees”. You are very kind and generous. I have no doubt some of the things I see are going to end up in my home!


I have a story for you and it is not about how I suddenly woke up, decided I wanted to make a bunch of money on Etsy selling printables and became an overnight success. This is a story of how I sloowwwwlllllyyyyyy came to the realization that success on Etsy as a "Printables girl" was POSSIBLE for me. Once I got to THAT point, then yes, things took off from there. But, let's start at the beginning...
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!!
Have you ever thought to sell printables on Etsy as an extra source of income? Selling printables is easy to do and can be a great way to earn extra cash for bills, debt, or even the Christmas fund! In this post, we’ll talk about how to sell printables on Etsy, various styles of printables, and there’s a video full of tips and tricks at the bottom – so keep reading!
These next two features are for the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition.  I love this feature.  There are so many times I want to access an object within several tightly spaced objects and using the rectangle or ellipse  selection tool is an exercise in frustration.  The flexibility this feature allows in selecting objects is so awesome.  This feature gets a 5 star rating.
Artist Notes: Send funny Happy 32nd Birthday greetings with this design that features an overall wood effect with a humorous sentiment based on trees and wood. Front sentiment is "You look so awesome! No one "Wood" believe you're 32" Inside sentiment is "Just don't let them count your rings. Have a tree-mendous birthday!" All wood effects are digitally created.
