Obsessions – August 15, 2012

I love to find and experiment with new fonts.

Some of my favorites are: FFF Tusj

from FontSquirrel.com

Flux Architect – Reminds me of my days in Art School!

from FontSquirrel.com

Pea Dawn from Kevin and Amanda

from kevinandamanda.com

Smiley Monster from Kevin and Amanda

from kevinandamanda.com

Alex Brush from Font Squirrel

from FontSquirrel.com

Just the way you are from dafonts.com

Joyful Juliana from dafont.com

These are only a few. I use some more often than others. I am always looking for new fonts to use with Photoshop.

Good sites are dafont.com, fontsquirrel.com, californiafonts.com and myfonts.com (not all fonts here are free)

Any suggestions on great fonts?

I am sure it is my doing. I have no idea. I used it yesterday morning to print out some labels from InDesign for my bath bombs and then left to work and when my husband woke up and went to do his banking, the computer wouldn’t move past the “starting windows” screen.

He restarted it and is said it was downloading a new program or something to that affect and then nothing.

The lovely Geek Squad is to the rescue and overnighted out laptop to “HP Headquarters.”

I know my husband is not happy about this. The computer is only 2 years old. I am the one on there doing Photoshop, InDesign, blogs, and I did install the Cricut programming on Sunday and it worked fine on Monday when I tested it out and I was on the computer the next few days after that.

I feel awful and that fault is solely on my shoulders. I have an EXTREME love/hate relationship with computers.

I hope it feels better soon!





Okay, New Valentine Card Plan

So I was on Sweetshoppedesigns yesterday, post my elementary attempt to make Valentine’s Day cards for my son’s preschool class and was way out-done and out-voted, obviously, by this one:

So, thank you Photoshop and Sweetshoppedesigns for letting me add my son’s name to the cards and having my other ones go into the recycle bin. Note taken!

(Funny – I am laughing on the outside and cringing at my attempt on the inside. Lesson learned get more creative!)
