Font Friday on Monday + A Giveaway

Hi blog friends!  I am so sorry for the lack of posting last week.  I was super swamped and today is my first relax day in awhile (notice the lazy afternoon post).  I had a wedding deadline on Sunday that took a major, super effort to get everything done on time.  I had Anthro work mixed in as well so the busy schedule definitely forced me to neglect some things, i.e. this blog and sleep.  The good news is that I got everything done on time and I was super happy with the way things turned out.  I designed some programs, escort cards, place cards, and table numbers for a wedding this upcoming Saturday all centered around the theme of rustic burlap.  The bride was such a joy to work with and her and the groom loved how everything turned out.  Ya!  But it all feels good to be done and to get back to blogging which I missed.  

Something exciting went down last week on Friday and although I am a bit behind, I am posting my special Font Friday post now on Monday.  My type friends and I got together to create free downloads all using the font Skunkling created by Jason Mark Jones.  Jason originally designed Skunkling for the Design Your Own Alphabet contest hosted by Design*Sponge.  He won and has now turned his design into a working font (which you can buy for $25).  Or you can enter our first ever Font Friday giveaway to win Skunkling.  

Here is a nice sampling of Skunkling in a variety of pretty colors.  Just think of all the fun designs you could come up with!

The giveaway is being hosted by Catherine of Design Editor so head over to her blog to comment and get all the details.  You can enter until Thursday (11/10) at midnight EST.  Also be sure to check out all of the great freebies by my font friends:

I also have a freebie to share!  I decided to create a holiday advent desktop wallpaper which features a Skunkling November and December calendar, perfect for remembering those big dates coming up.  As always, I was inspired by embroidery and cross stitch as well as vintage Nordic sewing patterns.  

I have a handful of sizes to choose from so you can find the one that best fits your screen.
