How was your weekend?  Ours was just swell. I’ve got a big story I can’t wait to tell! We worked through the weekend on our latest plan, with Skil Saw and Dremel and nail gun in hand. Tomorrow I’ll show all our hard work to you, together we built ourselves something brand new.

Till then, wishing you all a . . .

Fun with Frightful Fonts

Friday, October 14th, 2011

I had coffee with a two blog friends yesterday who live in my town (Cathe and Elise) and we got to talking about some holiday creations we’re planning with fonts (stay tuned for some magic!) but then that got me thinking about how much fun it really is to play around with different fonts on the computer.

My graphic design skills are limited, but I do love to play around with all sorts of different fonts and create simple cards, printables, or labels.  Halloween is one of those holidays when it’s especially fun to combine images and fonts together, and last year I made beverage labels using the free software from Picasa, here’s a look back. 

I created several kid friendly beverage labels including juice box labels …

… and three different water bottle labels too (only one shown).
