Tips for Using Pinterest to Organize Decorating Projects


On Style Illuminated this week, I've shared my favorite tips for using Pinterest to organize decorating projects. If you love Pinterest but you're not a decorista, these ideas are just as helpful if you're organizing content for blog posts, planning a party, or just keeping track of some of your favorite things around the web. Check out the post here. xo

10 Best Free Fonts!

[Typewriter photograph by J2Studios; rainbow background textures by Lost + Taken]

If you are a lover of Comic Sans, this post probably isn't for you. But if you're looking for some rad free fonts for your blog design or graphic projects, I've rounded up 10 of the best free fonts that I use and love. Most are available at dafont.com (and if you haven't heard of dafont before, well...you're welcome!). Click each graphic to download the font. 

Artistamp Medium 
Artistamp Medium: This is a fun font to use in digital collage projects, since it really lends the look of rubber alphabet stamps. 
Error: Simple and graphic. I think this font would be great on the business card of a graphic designer.
FFF Tusj: The loose and sketchy look of this font is so fun! 
Honey Script: This is a sweet script that's a little cleaner than handwriting, with a bit of a retro flair. I used this font on a wedding invitation design and loved the final look.
Impact Label: I love labelmakers. I also love labelamaker fonts. BOOM. 
Le Bain au Milieu de la Fin de Apres-Midi Vers 17:49: Fun fact - loosely translated, the name of the font is "The bath in the middle of the end of the afternoon around 5:49pm". I don't get it. But I like it.
LesleyFont: This is one of my fave fonts because, well, it's my own handwriting! (Seriously, how fun is that?) You can download it here
Never Let Go: You may have noticed this lovely cursive in a lot of my blog graphics. I love its handwritten look and readability.
Pupcat: When uppercase and lowercase letters are the same height, I'm abnormally happy. Pupcat was also used on the wedding invitation, along with Honey Script.
Rough Typewriter: Typewritten fonts aren't going anywhere - and this one has just enough character and imperfections to make it interesting. 

Creative peeps and font enthusiasts - what's your favorite font? (Or just for fun - what's your least favorite?) Do you have any fantastic resources to share in the comments?

Happy Wednesday!

Remember when I recently posted a photo of my shiny new computer on my desk? (Yes, I'm still very smitten with it!) Well, the lovely folks at Poppin wanted to help me dress up my desk a little so I've done some re-decorating with a few of their cute and chic office products!

Check out the full Dress Your Desk feature - where I share photos of my newly styled desk and chat about my dream job, personal style, and the favorite parts of my workspace -  on Poppin's blog today. (I've also curated a little board on Pinterest with links to the lovely Poppin accessories I've used.)

Happy Tuesday!
