Just because (40)

Happy Fall, Y'all! 2Two reasons this printable came to be:

  1. It’s a little known fact, unless you know me IRL, that I grew up in Texas.  My dad didn’t want his kids to sound “uncouth or uneducated”, so he fought hard to ensure we wouldn’t speak with a Texas drawl.  “Y’all” was one of those banned words in the house.  Now that there’s nothing he can do about it, I love to throw it around every so often… kind of like a nails on chalkboard effect for him.  ;)  And, using just the phrase “Happy Fall” didn’t have the same panache, as it did with “y’all” at the end of it.  Sometimes, I like when things rhyme, too.
  2. In my opinion, Chicago has nice weather just 2 times per year – for a few weeks in the spring and a couple of weeks in the fall.  That precious time is now upon us!  And the copious trees around here… they’re just starting to turn GORGEOUS!  Seriously, if you’re looking to visit an amazing city, this is the time of year to see Chicago.

So, on those notes – Happy Fall Y’all!  (Beautiful leaves photos from Microsoft ClipArt - here and here.)

Happy Fall, Y'all!This printable doesn’t have to be printed… feel free to use the image on your blogs or on Facebook/Twitter… anywhere you want to share some fall happiness. 

This is the 40th installment in the Just Because series(Can you believe that there have been 40 of these already?!?  Go here for a reminder peek at the very first one, just under a year ago.)

Just because (39)

Just Because 39 - we can do hard things - navy blue chevron 8x10 - Sprik SpaceOne of my best friends contacted me last week… she wanted a specific printable to hang as a reminder in her kitchen – “we can do hard things”.  Little did she know, that simple phrase was on my list of printables I wanted to work up… so I was more than happy to oblige.

While I was designing, it really got me thinking about our hardest trial to date – all 3 of us surviving Connor’s NICU journey.  I’m sure that won’t be our last struggle in this life, but I hope and pray that it was our most difficult.  One thing’s for sure, we never knew we were that strong until we had to be… we had no choice.  We definitely count our blessings every day for the miracle that Connor is, and we’re humbly grateful for all of his progress.

I love this phrase – it’s a perfect motivational reminder that we’re never given more than we can handle… and that if we set our minds to it, we can do anything.   

This installment of the Just Because series is a doozy – there are 12 colorways, 3 versions of each color, using 3 pattern pieces: chevron, dots, and houndstooth – that’s a total of 36 files available this time!  I sure hope you have fun with this one.  :)

we will never forget

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.”

- President George W. Bush

“The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.”

FAQ regarding my freebies

I’ve been receiving a lot of the same questions lately via e-mail, so I thought I’d save all of us the trouble ;) and address them in a quick post.  (Because I’m really, really bad about staying on top of my inbox!)

You can find a listing of all of the freebies I’ve offered on Sprik Space here.

 

Sizing, resolution, and coloring of the freebies

On each freebie post, I specify the size(s) in which I have designed the printable.  These are the sizes to order and/or print them in if you don’t want them to be distorted from what you see on the screen.  Again, for best results, be sure to order the printables in the size already specified on their individual post. 

Most of the freebies are 300 pixels/inch resolution, with exception of printables sized 11x14 and larger – those are 200 pixels/inch.  As of right now, until I hold still and learn Photoshop, that’s the best my sad little designing program can do.  For your basic typographic printable, these resolutions are just fine, and you shouldn’t run into any problems with your photo printer.

In simple terms, as far as discrepancies in the coloring of the freebies, I design in the RGB color model and color printers use the CMYK color model.  Therefore, there will inherently be differences between what you see on the screen and how your printed product turns out.  (I won’t even get into how colors can be slightly different from computer monitor to computer monitor.)  Whenever you can, turn off any auto color correction tools when sending images to a printer.  I typically send my prints to Costco, because that’s the most convenient and cost efficient place for me.  Zemya Photography recently posted a really cool comparison on various photo printing services

If the colors in which I’ve offered the printable just don’t do it for you, please contact me about color customization – more details here.   

 

How to download from 4shared

I receive a few e-mails each day from readers wondering why they have to pay to download my freebies from 4shared… guess what – you don’t!  :)  Here’s how you should go about downloading from 4shared…

Once you’ve clicked from my freebie post (typically the image embedded within the post is your download link), you’ll come to a page that might look a little like this.  This is where you’ll choose the color(s) you want to save for yourself.

4shared 1

After you’ve chosen the color(s) you want, you’ll see a page similar to the one below.  Downloading from 4shared is FREE, as long as you click on the purple “Download Now” button, located beneath and to the right of the image you want to download.

4shared 2

Sometimes, your download will begin immediately to your pre-appointed download folder on your computer.  Oh happy day!!  However, many times 4shared requires you to wait several seconds before they make the download link fully available.  Please be patient.  I use 4shared because it’s a free file-sharing site… and you come to Sprik Space for free printables.  It’s all good.

4shared 3

After your wait time is up, the download link will appear.  Click on those purple words: “Download file now”.  Your download should begin immediately to your pre-appointed download folder on your computer.

4shared 4

 

Sharing my freebies on your site

If you would like to blog about any of my free printables, or share them on Facebook or Pinterest, please accompany any images from my site with a credit and link back to their post.  As a courtesy, please do not link directly to a downloadable file but rather to the post page.  Additionally, if you happen to blog/share about a personal use project you completed using any of my freebies, I would love a link back to Sprik Space – it would mean the world to me!  (And, if you let me know that you’ve posted something, I want to share your post on the Sprik Space Facebook page.)  Thank you for your understanding!

 

Simplified (and clarified, once again) definition of commercial use

Do you happen to be using any of my freebies in your own ventures that are generating income for you?  (Personal, self-designed blogs running advertising that use Sprik Space freebies in their blog design are excepted… and I’d love a link back!  If those self-designed blogs are generating income for your home/small business, we should talk.  I know it’s a little confusing, just contact me if you have questions.)  Let’s talk about a commercial use license.  :)  More details here.

Just because (38)

I try really hard to be an optimist… just ask my husband.  But sometimes, I still need a bold reminder.  That’s what this printable is for – hopefully it’ll help you, too.  I’m going to print it and hang it in our home office.

So, here you go… another printable in the Just Because series.  :)

THINK POSITIVE Image

This time around, I’ve sized it at 5x7, and it’s in 16 colorways.

To download the 5x7 image(s) for printing, simply click on the collage above, and a new window will open to the download locations in 4shared.  Save the image(s) to your computer, and they’re yours!  Just print it out yourself, or upload to your photo printer of choice.

I always love to see the creative ways you put my freebies to use.  Please be sure to send me links or pictures! I can’t wait to see what you’ve done with them.  :)
