Create Your Own Font!!

We have all heard of doing this, but Bailey Stiegler (Starlite9711 over at DD) has started her own etsy shop where she will create one for you out of your very own writing!

You can find her shop HERE .

It is a super simple process & very cool to see your own personal touch on a digital page. Here is a recent page that I used my font which I named XXL-Kayleigh W.

Here is a page that Erin aka nirecreations created using her own font:

OK so now think outside the box with me here... how cool would it be to capture your child's writing in their own font & use it on pages? or how about your significant others. (I think I have my husband convinced to do his as well!) Or think about your grandmother's, or an elderly family member? It would be a priceless keepsake for generations to come. What a way to personalize a page! I am so excited about all the possibilities that this brings to each of us & can't wait to see how you are inspired by this idea! - Kayleigh

Happy New Year Everyone!

Hi Everyone, I know it's been a while and I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. I can't believe it feels like Christmas was so long ago. I won't be sad if time flies by fast in the next couple of months, I'm really not a winter fan. I look forward to the warm weather.

For those who don't already know the reason why I haven't been that creative before Christmas was that I'm EXPECTING! My Husband and I are so looking forward to our first child; which we should be meeting sometime in June. My expected due date is June 8th. So both Kayleigh and I are expecting little ones. We are about three weeks apart and excited! :) Here are some pages I have been working on:
