I’m a Font Junkie

I was out of town last week, then my computer was duplicating my emails times three…what a mess!  I deleted 2000 emails yesterday.  And…I feel like I’ve had a great bath!  Good to see some clutter erased!

This morning and saw a fresh flyer in my box that indicated I almost missed a great sale!  ScrapNFonts is having a HUGE sale on fonts for the 4th if you have some time to sit down for yourself a second.  One of my currents favs I saw on sale for the next five days is “DB Hello Cupcake“.  It is darling and cuts well with my Cricut and markers (with the SCAL program add-on).

I made this card super-fast, therefore the photo is not stellar, but I thought it turned out cute for the time I had.  I used the frame, cone, and journaling circle done from the DB Hello Cupcake font set.

I tried coloring a background with watercolors (didn’t really like how it warped the card, but live and learn).  I stamped her name with my new little Studio G ministamps I found at Michael’s on sale for $1 each on Spring break (Nashville).  Stamping ink:  Brown Chocolate Memento ink… LOVE it (very permanent, won’t bleed into other markers), available at Hobby Lobby. Brown marker for the Cricut, cut out using the SCAL “shadow” feature, colored with Prisma Alcohol based markers. The hot pink strip is from a new cutter I had found on sale (ebay) for my Cuttlebug.  Tiny eyelets were courtesy of Cindy J–Making Memories.

While I’m gluing, I’m usually help kids get into party clothes, pack pool gear for the party.  With three kids, a lot of summer parties most often means a cash gift from us and running fast!

DB Hello Cupcake is on sale for one dollar the next 5 days at ScrapNFonts…normally $3.00.)  Even without SCAL or a Cricut, you can still print it on cardstock and use it on a layout or card design.   A great deal, super trendy, super-cute.  One of the images in the set is a cute “cupcake” calendar I want to print next!

Here’s a free product I want to snatch up before it expires on the 5th–cute hand-drawn elements with arrows and stars and such.  They’ve got some other lettering fonts I want to check out with the 40% off coupon code JulyParade.  The entire list of 4th of July “Padade” sale items is here.

I’m going shopping, I see Patriotic and Beach stuff I want!

Yup…I’m a font junkie.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
