Today’s post is full of nerdiness and girly glee. In fact, it wasn’t even originally on the editorial calendar. However when I learned last week that today is the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) the calendar simply had to be changed. You know from the DIY Buffy Hush Box that it breaks my heart that there just aren’t a lot of Buffy DIY projects available. The same goes for free printables, unique merchandise, and more. At least for this year, that is going to change starting with this free printable inspirational Buffy art. If you want even more BTVS fun stick around for fun facts, merch, and freebies at the end!

A Fangirl is Born
Before BTVS I didn’t understand the hardcore fandoms. The Star Wars buffs arguing over “who shot first”, the Trekkies who took the time to learn Klingon… it was baffling. Then entered Buffy and I was instantly a fangirl. I have seen every DVD extra and commentary, I own all of the Watcher’s Guides, and I play 2 different Buffy RPG games. I read all of the interviews, listen to the cd’s, and get super upset when people misquote facts about the show. Suddenly I am that crazy person that I didn’t used to understand and I love it!
Free Printable Inspirational Buffy Art
If you follow along with the monthly goals posts then you know that this month I am finishing up my office move. Inspirational wall art is a staple for a gorgeous office makeover. What better to inspire you than quotes from the best girl-power show ever? That’s why I created these colorful free printable inspirational Buffy art prints. If you need a reminder of how amazing you are, take a look at these and say, “I got this!” Click on the pictures above to download yours now.
