Man, oh, man do I love fonts. I spent several hours today downloading new ones. I don’t know if that’s a Sabbath-y type activity, but it was restful. And it is a day of rest.
Some of my new fonts I had to pay for (2 Peas has masses of cute, girly fonts that are $1-$2 each. Most are so sweet they’ll make your teeth hurt), but some were free (Dafont.com has tons of easily downloadable free Mac fonts. And PC fonts but who cares about those.)
Here are a few of my new favorites:
As you can tell, I love serifs. And script fonts. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s the great thing about fonts; there is something for everyone.

Okay, be sure you are sitting because I’m about to rock your whole world.
Go to yourfonts.com. You can put your own handwriting as a font. You print out their little form, fill it out, scan it in and then they generate your handwriting as a font. It is the most fun ever.
I love beautiful fonts too 🙂 These are so gorgeous. Thanks for the link I was desperately searching something like this. Have a great week, love: Evi
love those! I’m off to buy. Thanks J. Go download Afternoon Delight and Freebooter Script. They’re free and you’ll love them!
I am so computer lame. I love the fonts, but have never sat down to figure all that out. I’ll definately have to hop on it. Thanks for the tips!
My husband and I met because of a font sampler I was making for my document design class (another one of those BYU Honor’s classes which had nothing to do with my major–some of the best kind!) I think appreciation for fonts is genetic since I find my daughter downloading fonts regularly. I love some of the 2 Peas fonts. Have to go there. THanks.
I still have a “Jennie’s favorites” folder in my font book from Ben. You have the best taste in them 🙂
I like a lot of those fonts! but “Little Days” made my stomach heave just a little bit. Do they have those for PC? I’ve never paid for a font before, but some of those just might be worth it.
love love love fonts! i have used several of the 2peas fonts for work and people absolutely love them. everywhere i go i look at signs and i can usually name that font (must be the line of work i am in!!) you have found some great ones. i might need to get a few more and cut them in vinyl. i would love to write my own font too. how cool is that??
I had a ton on my old computer…but then it died. When I get a new one (hopefully over Memorial Day) I will have to go font hunting again.
I think I have them backed up somewhere…
I love it! Gary laughs at me every time I do any type of page for my calling, Christmas letter, etc.,because it takes me longer to pick out the font than it does to write whatever I am writing.
These fonts are really fabulous! Thanks for sharing them.
I’m crazy about fonts too! You’ve displayed some great ones. I want them all!
I dig fonts. I have over 1000 on my computer. it is sad 🙁
