Yipppeeeee! It's FREEEEEEEEE!


I have dedicated F to a collection of fabulous FREE online finds... check it out...

First up is...

Free Design

Free Design is a sideline project for blogger Summer Allen-Gibson from Design is Mine.

Free Design "was created because I suddenly realized that somebody had to weed through all the bad freebies on the internet and find the ones that are inspiring, creative and generally well designed, and that person should be me."

Summer highlights some really great finds - everything from Martha Stewart's Printables to some great patterns for Pinhole Cameras... here's a snippet
