Yesterday I gave you some ideas for fun surprises you can do for your honey that won’t make him blush of embarrassment.
Well, today I am helping out all you fine folks who aren’t the conductor of the crafty train. Or maybe you are skipping the train all together.
It is simple.
Step one- buy cute card.
Phew, that was easy.
Now you just give them bedroom eyes and maybe a bowl of ice cream.
Fool-proof Valentines Day.
Now as promised….my favorite “love-ly” fonts.
As usual, you can find all of these fonts for free at DaFont.com.
You know I love free.
Make sure you check back tomorrow to scope all of our V-Day decorations!
This weekend we took advantage of our free time and did some decorating.
Just a heads up…we can never get the lighting quite right on mantle shots. That has nothing to do with the giant fish tank sitting right across from it, or the fact that it gets zilch in the form of natural light. Did I say nothing? I meant everything….it’s my “problem child” as far as photos go.
I have always been a big fan of the free printable, but rarely do you find exactly what you are looking for. So this year, I got brave.
I made my own.
If you hate them and think they’re hideous, well it was my first try.
But if you actually like them….then you can have them.
I am offering up some free festivus for you all.
Just click the “download” button right above.
Then click on the “Christmas Printables” link on the next page.
Then you can chose the one you want and print or save. If you get all crafty with these bad boys, make sure you send photos. I will be like your gramma and gush over your craftiness. Then I might pinch your cheeks.
If you need help, feel free to ho-ho-holler.
Recently, I was asked to join the United Way committee for my employer.
Of course, I took on the flyers. Which were due at month end (accountants know whats up with it) the day before we left for our two-week vacation. It’s fine, I work best under pressure.
Wanna know what I realized whilest working on said flyers?
I like fonts.
And I like them….a lot. Here are some of my favorites.
The best part is you can search every single one of those fonts at DaFont.com and get them for yourself.
Amendment: When I posted this I thought I downloaded them all from Dafont.com…it appears some aren’t there anymore. Click the links below for the missing fonts. Lainie Day, Sail, Rosewood, Modern No. 20, American Typewriter, and Simply Glamorous. Please let me know if anymore go missing….love you, mean it! No seriously, I mean it.
So you wanna see what I did with these spicy fonts? I took our normal clip art posters and made these….
I am by no means a graphic designer. But I will say I think these flyers are an upgrade and I am excited about it!
If you didn’t notice, most of the flyers are very text heavy. Choosing the right fonts made the poster more artistic than informational, and hopefully more people will take a look and get involved. Fingers crossed.
What about you all, got a favorite font I should know about?
