Oh Deer: Freebie Printable Art

For some reason during the holiday season, I am always inspired to create more home DIY projects than any other time of the year.  Admittedly many of them look something like an elementary school project gone wrong, but at least I try, I suppose.  You might recall that recently, I teamed up with The Mint to create a home DIY decor project, inspired by an awesome print from their website.  I loved taking part in the project so much, I decided to try my hand at some DIY art and came up with this "Oh Deer" silhouette print.  This FREE printable can be printed on stock card paper to sit on its own or to be given as a cool greeting card; placed in a nice frame and given as a gift or incorporated into a holiday/home decor project like I have here; or even cut out to create a stencil that could be used with fabric paint to create a holiday inspired pillow!

If you are anything like me, sometimes I can get so caught up in the activities of day-to-day life, that I become less in tune to what is going on outside of my little world.  When I finally "look up," I see so many in need, but it is difficult to find the time or even the energy to do something to truly make a difference.  That is why I am beyond excited to collaborate with Benevolence LA as they work with their first charity partner, Hands4Others, on a mission to bring sustainable access to Read More
