I've created FREE Printables for Little Gatherer which is a children's website based in New Zealand, so I knew my paper art was shared internationally. I've had people from all around the United States tell me they had fun creating my printable paper dolls, so I know my paper art gets around. But I've never actually gone to someone's house who I didn't know and found my printable art hanging on their walls.
Well, that is until the other day! I was meeting with a client on a project and went to their house. Their family was there so I said hello to them. Then I spied one of the printables I created for Little Gatherer. It was the balloons with the cute little animals hanging from them. I was shocked to see it on their walls. I had never met them before. They didn't know what I did.
"Where did you get this?" I asked them. They told me they had gotten it from their sister who was really into paper art and paper crafting, but who I didn't know either. I told them that it was my free printable and I was happily surprised to see it in a total stranger's house. We laughed about it. What a fun co-winkie-dink! It's really nice to know that paper crafters out there are finding and playing with my printables! Hooooooray!
