How to Use Free Goods of the Week for Easy Family Fun Crafts
The “FREE Goods of the Week” are sent out every Monday. If something looks good to me, I save it to my Dropbox or Google Drive because you never know when a creative moment will strike. All you know is that you need to be prepared.
It’s always easier to be creative when you have creative resources ready and at your fingertips.
For example, does this unicorn look familiar?
I saw this come up one week as part of the Free Goods. So, I quickly grabbed it. Wanna grab it too? Click here.
I mean, seriously—who could pass up a water-colored unicorn????
But it sat for MONTHS deep within the files of my computer. I had NO IDEA what to do with it. I knew I wanted to do something fun, but I couldn’t decide what.
Then October came.
I decided I wanted to do a big Unicorn theme for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And I created two printables with the unicorn.
