A few weeks ago I was visiting my fave font shop and found this lovely little font called Matchmaker. I thought it could be a good font to mention as I know that the long ‘tails’ are very coveted on the blogosphere. It’s a simple, sweet and affordable font, purchasing helps a new mom out (no not me, the creator of the font). I reached out to Angie B. the font designer to let her know that I thought she had a good thing going here and found out she has a five month old, then I proceeded to ask how she was doing it. I think I may start asking more creative mommy’s how they are doing it (the whole work and mommy thing), because I feel like I need lots of help. It may ‘take a village’ to do a lot of things but I need to access the entire globe for help. I was adamant that I wasn’t going to turn this into a ‘mommy’ blog once Elle was born, but it’s who I am now, I’m a mom and I have lots of questions and I need lots of answers and to tap into the wealth of experience that is the world wide web, maybe there are others out there that are interested as well, those who are mom’s, those that are mom’s to-be, or those that need to know the truth about life with baby (newsflash no one is glamorous with throw-up in their hair).
Oh and if you are wondering how I was able to get this post in, my little babe has been sleeping for an unprecedented two hours! Two hours?! I feel like I just won the Lotto, she’s never slept for more than an hour during the day, so this was a happy surprise as I want her to be able to sleep and of course I want to be able to work so I can provide for her (which is why I am procrastinating by blogging). Every day is a learning experience and every day things change with a baby, thank you for your visits, they keep me going and keep me from feeling like I am doing this all on my own.
P.S. To access the ‘tails’ in Adobe Illustrator you can got to ‘type’ and then ‘glyphs’ and a box will pop up of all the glyphs which is the technical tern for the ‘tails’. Our friend Debi Sementelli (of Bellucia font fame) created a video on importing glyphs from Illustrator or InDesign into Photoshop that you may find very helpful. There currently isn’t a glyphs panel in Photoshop. In Microsoft Word I believe you can access via ‘text’ then ‘symbol’ and then ‘insert’, but I haven’t used Word in ages so if someone wants to correct me on that please feel free to!
