The website is http://www.dafont.com/ and has hundrends, perhaps thousands of free fonts you can download, unzip and put it in your font folder to use in your Word program. The fonts are amazing. My favorite is "mom's typewriter".

I made this for my Bunny Swap partner which is hosted by the uber-talented Deb from HopHopJingleBoo. I made it out of a paper mache box so the lid comes off. It's covered with Creative Paper Clay. The pink/yellow flowers around the outside of the cake are hand sculpted. The piping was made by shooting molding paste mixed with yellow paint through a cake decorating tip. The bunny was also made with paper clay and it has about 10 pounds of glitter on it which resembles sugar! The glitter is very hard to see in the photos. What do you think? Would you be happy to get "Flower" (that's what I named the bunny) in a swap?
These are the guys who sold us our boat from S & H Marine Sales in Younstown, Ohio. Thanks Bob and John! Great service and just really nice gentlemen!This is my best friend Danielle on the boat (of course you probably already figured that one out!) ......"on the boat"....duh! Sorry, I probably just got too much sun on my head today! Doesn't she look relaxed?!?!?! She looks like the poster-girl for Misty Harbor boats!This might be where you will find me all summer as my first docking lesson last night was less than stellar. However, I have steadfast resolve and I WILL learn to dock it!!An interesting discovery of the day.......ducks like Chex Mix! Isn't that baby duckling cute???? He stuck very close to mama!

I have a wonderful artist friend in California who does brilliant collages and ATCs. I created this penant which measures 8in X 6in X 6in. using her Flickr icon. She is "Partyhatgirl". Go to Flickr.com and check out her work! It is whimsical, funny and sweet.....just like Jacque! The penant was created with decorative papers, Sugarloaf stamps, markers, glitter (who could forget the glitter????) and flat backed marbles all sandwiched between 2 sheets of glass and soldered. The collage is 2 sided so really it's 2 pieces of art in one! These little buggers are time consuming from beginning to end! But I think they are worth it, I really like how this one turned out. What do you think?
If you would like a custom penant created for your studio, please give me an email at:
