On Sunday, Dan said, "Let's go get Valentine's gifts for the kids." And I said, "Ho-kay." And then he said, "Which laptop do you want?" And I said, "All of them."
My previous laptop, a Christmas gift in 2009, was dying a slow but painful death. The battery no longer charged. It would randomly go to blue screen. Doing my Project Life layouts -- or any -- required a significant investment of time because it would randomly freeze. I needed a new laptop and I needed it before my current laptop died.
I was pretty thrilled to get a new one because it is superfast and did I mention superfast? I spent Sunday afternoon installing and transferring programs, data and files. A priority for me, a self-proclaimed font snob, was installing my favorite fonts on the new laptop... but I also wanted to be super choosy about what fonts I installed. I only wanted to install fonts I knew I would use. I added less than forty fonts, which is an example of the huge restraint I showed in installing fonts. And then I decided maybe I should share some of my "must have" fonts. I'll link them to where you can download (though they're not all free) so you can add them to your own list of "must have" fonts. Cuz I got 99 fonts and Comic Sans ain't one of them.
LD Elementary (or Primer Print) are my recommendations when someone says, "But I love Comic Sans. The letters look like a child's print."
This is my handwriting font, made by Darcy Baldwin when she was featured at The Daily Digi when I was on the creative team. I love using my handwriting on my Project Life layouts. I also have a font from my "teacher" handwriting and one from Mykiah's handwriting. You can buy this font as part of a set here or I linked the above image to Darcy's store where you can purchase a font of your own handwriting. It is super simple; you just need access to a scanner. It's such an easy way to add a personal touch to my layouts.
So there's 10 fonts I couldn't live without. What are your favorite fonts? Tell me what I'm missing!
