I fonted myself (again). At fontcapture.com. But the dumb thing I don't even have Microsoft Office on my home computer, so I cannot use it. This is just the preview. Oh and I totally messed up on the period so I made a big black circle.
I sort of would like to get B's 80-year-old Mema to do this, since she complains about her handwriting getting worse (but really it hasn't). It is gorgeous cursive. She is pretty bummed out that they don't really teach cursive in schools anymore. Handwriting is something of a lost art. B's is almost illegible (it that only partially got him out of splitting writing the thank you cards), but he types very quickly. Trade-off.
Today I realized that success that comes easily isn't that rewarding. Occasionally when people highly compliment me on something, I just brush it off. "It's the camera!" It really is. I have an awesome camera and lens. I just recognize good conditions and then shoot away. "It's just the recipe." And it is! I am pretty darn good at following instructions. It's not so hard to make something edible and fragrant.. I could not even imagine making my own recipes, with the wealth of recipes that exists already. I actually hate experimenting with flavor combinations, because I don't want to make something gross. But I guess that's what you have to do to be innovative and stand out. B likes to experiment. I give him a really hard time when he fails, but I should instead encourage him. That is one thing I will try to learn from him.. to try! I took this quote from Erin's blog: A Woody Allen Quote:
