Fonts! Fonts! Fonts!

For those of you who blog . . . um, I'm typing on the "new" blogger face and it's not letting me go back to the old one.  I feel like I'm driving on the wrong side of the road or something.  Not that I've ever done that, but I got a feel for it when I traveled in taxis around England.  It was very odd and things were on the wrong side of my peripheral vision.  I think Big Ben was supposed to be on my left and the London Eye on my right . . . but I could be wrong.  I was jet lagged.  And lost.  Which is exactly my point.  I do not understand this new blogger face.  Is it even called a face?

For those of you who read and choose not to blog, (which I cannot fathom because I tend to post in my head all throughout the day.  Except for this current rant.  This is just off the cuff.) I am sure it all looks good on your end so don't worry about me getting into a head on collision or anything.

I was stalking blogs as usual the other day (I have not been getting my maximum daily dose and I think a sick day may be in order) when I came across some new *FREE* fonts.  With virtually no rules.

I think they are ADORABLE.

I have been using them like crazy.

And guess what?

Nicole over at Rowdy in Room 300 created them.  For real.  On an app.

AN APP!

I think the app costs some money, but that's never stopped me before.  

Look at these fonts!!!!






The best part is that Nicole made it so super easy for me (and others, I suppose, but since I tend to think everything's about me, we'll go with me) to download them!  I did have to restart my computer in order to see them show up, but other than that, super duper easy.  

I love how she called them Rowdy.  Get it?  Her blog is Rowdy in Room 300.  That is just too cute.

So if I got the app, and I created fonts, would I call them Teeny?  Or Tiny?  Something tells me it doesn't have the same ring to it.  So I think I'll stick to downloading the fonts and using them like crazy.

Look:

This was a binder cover I made with Rowdy Spunky.

And then I fancied up my Parent Newsletter for next week with Rowdy Cute and Rowdy Swirls!


No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you.  It's blurry.  I wasn't able to save this as a JPEG.  Don't ask.  I'm over it.  So I took a screen shot.  The end.  The important thing?  Did you notice the fun fonts????  I KNOW!!!!

Go see Nicole over at Rowdy in Room 300.  Hurry before she decides she should sell these!! :) :) :)

In the meantime, I am gearing up for a BIG Reality TV night.

1.  Survivor Season Premiere.  With Jeff Kent.  As in the Dodgers. As in my husband is more excited to watch than me.

2.  Big Bro Season Finale.  I STILL can't believe Dan did that to Shane.  But I am STILL not over the fact that Danielle just did what he said in the first place.  I might have gone a little ballistic at the TV and scared my dog, but I'm working through the whole Dan and Danielle thing in therapy.

3.  The Challenge - Battle of the Seasons.  Yes.  I watch.  I am basically a kid and act like I'm still sixteen.

4.  That's it for tonight, but has anyone been watching Breaking Amish?  I am FASCINATED.  My only worry is that it's not exactly reality.  How does that one boy know so many bad words? It doesn't make sense to me.

Well, I should go.  I am thisclose (yes.  thisclose.) to finishing up that Morning-Work-Unit-Compilation-That-Is-Going-To-Be-The-Death-Of-Me and I better get to working.

  2. I love all those fonts. I would love if you would make some of your own fonts. Your newsletter is super cute. If you click on the image, it shrinks it down so it is clear. At least it appears that way on my computer which is strange so don't trust me. And those are the best tv shows! Big brother made me so happy tonight. Can't wait to read your reaction about it!

  3. Those fonts are cute!
    I'm watching the Amish show. I live very close to the Amish in our county and just over the border in Indiana. I've always found their lives to be very interesting. Patty

  4. Love fonts!! Only problem is that I can't install any on my school computer :(
    I am still holding a grudge against Danielle for lying at the beginning of the season and telling everyone she was a kindergarten teacher so they would think she just played with kids all day. :( I want Ian to win, just because Dan already has.

  7. Thanks for sharing these fonts. I purchased the app z few weeks ago and created some fonts that you can get for free on my blog. I have created 2 more that I need to add. I also posted a tutorial on how to use the app also. Check it out.

  13. We.love.fonts. Can't have enough-like ever!

    Survivor: watched and was so afraid Jeff was going to be done the first 5 minutes. Was the hubs dying!!! Who's your fav?

    BB-haven't watched the latest so plugging my ears for spoilers. Cannot believe what Dan has pulled off! Impressive. Love that Brittany puts everyone back in check and the fact that this is a GAME people!
    Almost had to stop watching when Rachel was back on for Pandora's. Can't she just be off and done forever?! Just can't stand that one-but indeed a true punishment.

  16. I love the fonts! Yay fun fonts! I wonder if can download them on my computer at school. The county has strange rules about websites we can go to etc.

    I am also really into Breaking Amish right now! I am also really fascinated with it as well. So interesting. It's the real world with people who have never used electricity.
