STOP!  I know you.. the one with the “MUST DOWNLOAD ALL THE THINGS T-SHIRT”  I’m going to ask for a tiny moment of your time and then you can get all up into the goodies that I’ve prepared for you! :D

First off I want to show you two kits!  I know, I know.. you are probably like “SHOW ME THE MONEY!” but I figure while I have your attention (if you aren’t a person who scans only for pics and clicks) I might as well show you what I made!  First off is a Patriotic Kit and the other is a Sugary Sweet sorta’ kit.  I think that says enough, right?  Ok, so here they are:

Ok.. ok.. now you can get your train freebie!  I made some styles to match this time!  If you aren’t used to styles give them a try!!

Are you an aspiring designer or perhaps just a really savvy digi-scrapper?  Then SAY HELLO to the 60% off sale going on now at SHCo!

You know how you are like “MUST DOWNLOAD ALL THE THINGS!”? Well, I was like “MUST CREATE ALL THE THINGS!”  This is my 3rd year in the SHCo Parade and I wanted to create something useful.. so I made some back to school patterns!  But before you can see those you have to see the other goodies I’ve made for you!  And remember these are 60% off!

and last but not least is a “clicker”  I feel crazy excited about this next project I worked on with the talented Vicki Robinson.  It is a CU mixed media bundle!  it is great for designers and scrappers alike.  Don’t miss it.. as it is a full 70% off!

It is a new week at Mommyish and I have some awesome stuff to share with you all!
In case you missed it at Scrap Stacks here is my fun travel kit – Such a Trip!  It is on sale 30% off through the weekend!

Also at P&Co is my portion of the designer stash.  I created some really great PSE/CS styles!  These are not only great for the stash but fantastic for adding to your own inventory of styles!




This week my style sets came as ideas from two different designers!  Remember, if you send me a style idea and I use it – you get the style free! <3




Also new at SHCo is a new grab bag called Designer Basics!  This has been set up by Wishing Well Creations & Sugarplum Paperie and myself!  Each month we will take two of our products and bundle them together (six products) and offer them to you for that month at a huge price-cut – $6! (normally a $30 dollar value)  So even if you have one or two of the products it is still a great steal!

It is Monday Mania @ Mommyish!  Last week was a holiday so I didn’t have a post.  (Ok, that is what I’m going to say as an excuse for not doing a post for the ENTIRE WEEK.. that and my dog ate my post and I was washing my hair and there was a freak alien abduction and.. ok, see.. loads of excuses there.)

First thing is a congrats to our first drawing winner!  I really liked the part of her post about only going to town once a week.  I know this is probably by choice.  We also live in an area where everything is a bit out of the way.  I’m all for getting things done at once so you don’t have to waste time going back over and over and over again.  It must be cool to live somewhere where you could just walk to the store and not have to trek over mountains in a foot of snow.. both ways.. uphill.

This week I’m going to be an enabler!  Oh yes.. are you ready for our topic?  *drumroll*

font-addict
(the fonts above are brought to you in part by the letter F & the fonts KG BLESS YOUR HEART & junko’s typewriter)

 Ok, so this is where we introduce ourselves.  *stands* Hello, My name is Leah.. and I have a serious addiction.  No, it isn’t chocolate… it is something far more sinister.  Fonts.  I am a font addict.  I have thousands of fonts on my computer.. I just can’t stop downloading them. *sits*

Ok, seriously though I think that when I’m looking at advertisements and product packaging and naming off fonts – I might have a problem.  Ok, maybe not a problem.  There isn’t anything wrong with being a typophile.  I browse through myfonts.com like a hipster browses through Whole Foods.  I get giddy when I get my weekly newsletter from myfonts with their rising stars!  I’m not talking about celebrities here.. I’m talking about yummy font goodness!

My font addiction started with Century Gothic.  It is the font you are reading right now.  I fell in love with the smooth curves and clean lines.  It was simple, modern.. perfect.  Century Gothic will always hold a special place in my heart.  But then I discovered free fonts.

*Warning – visiting the following websites may result in a new addiction or furthered addiction of typography.  Read at your own risk*

I think what I loved more than anything was how the look and feel of a font can change the tone of words.  I mean there is a big difference between these two:

Rye & Times New Yorker

Ok, now onward to the good stuff.  These are the websites I stalk frequent as a typophile lover of fonts.

Free Fonts -

  • Font Squirrel - This is a great site with mostly free for commercial use fonts.  Be sure to read terms as commercial use terms can be different depending on the designer.
  • DaFont - This is one of the older free sites.  The database of fonts is HUGE.  As always some are free for commercial use and others are not.  Read the terms!
  • Abstract Fonts - Another of the older sites.  Again, huge database.  I’m not a fan of the design interface for some reason but loads of goodness here.  Again, read your terms.
  • KevinandAmanda - These fonts are amazing for scrapbookers as there are loads of beautiful handwritten fonts and dingbats.
  • Google Fonts - Oh yes!  You will not regret visiting google fonts.  The even better part is it is all integrated for web usage!  OM NOM!
  • Kimberly Geswein – Kimberly makes some awesome fonts and they are free for personal use and very reasonably priced for commercial use!

Pay Fonts - 

I am a believer in paying for fonts.  To me fonts are art and the artist deserve to be paid for their work.  These are some of the sites that I frequent to purchase fonts at the best rates.

  • MightyDeals - This is a graphic designer’s dream site.. and from time to time they have AMAZING deals on fonts.  Typically a font family will run you between 30-40 dollars.  On this site I’ve seen families for as low at $9!
  • Creative Market – A newer design haven.  You find a myriad of fonts at various prices.  I’ve found some great ones for as low as 3-4 dollars!
  • MyFont.com - Not only is myfont.com a reputable site for fonts but they also have free fonts here as well.  I personally love to type in something fun and just look at all the font goodness!
  • Lost Type – This is a donate/pay site.  If you are wanting personal use fonts then you can download for whatever you feel is appropriate.  Commercial Useage is $40 per font. (From what I have read on the new site)

Alright.  This is a short list but well worth visiting.  Remember, don’t be ashamed of loving fonts.  (Click below for a free printable! 8×10)

This week I will be gifting my newest style set (being released this week) to TWO lucky commenters.   So here is my question – What is your favorite font, and why?
