ZOMG! Free Fonts!

New coolest thing ever—downloading fonts! K maybe not really but it is convenient when your handwriting looks as terrible as mine. I found these cute favorites on Pinterest and from there went on a crazy person rampage downloading hundreds of fun, new fonts!
Then just like a great pair of new shoes I needed somewhere to show them off. However, since my boss tends to frown on my sending him emails in Simon Script--weirdo--I decided it was time for a few design projects. All of these were designed using Swift Publisher 3 for Macs. Unfortunately, my CSS doesn’t download since I live in Afghanistan and Internet hasn’t been invented. Kidding! But this program is a great alternative and it’s only twenty bucks!

A design for Alix' new nursery. I'd show it in a cute frame but again I live in Afghanland.  Supplies are limited.

This is one of my favorite quotes and I thought it would help my new bulletin board look cute. We want to see what fun things you designed using your new fonts! Show us in the comments section!!

Geometric Nail Art

Ok guys I’m not creative. Don’t judge.

So when I saw this on Pinterest I was excited!
Some simple creativity and we’ll leave the difficult projects for Alix. 
Oh yea! My left hand is dumb. Other than that though the project was easy to follow and my nails turned out really cute! 

Geometric Nails Project Breakdown:

Start with clean nails and then apply base coat. I chose a light pink. 

Let this dry completely. After this I basically just applied tape all sorts of ways and painted in the spots left without tape. Second color—hot pink.

Let the second layer also dry completely and then again apply tape. Paint tapeless sections. 

Third color—grey. Let dry and apply a top coat.

All in all, I give this pin

  4 stars!

 Despite the ease of the project I had to take off a star since the project just took forever. Mostly I just ran out of patience. Also if you’re wondering about my color choices I’m in Afghanistan and the selection is limited. Good luck painting your nails!
