to start off this week’s inspired – a compilation of the best free fonts of 2012. who doesn’t love a good, free font?
my morning routine is a fairly new column on bon appetit featuring celebrities and how they take their coffee, among other routinely things. mornings are my favorite time of the day. i love breakfast. and i love jonathan adler. this column was made for me.
i have an impossibly hard time saying no. i’m a people pleaser and i’ve always been terrified of hurting anyone’s feelings. but when you’re freelancing and working a full-time job, there comes a point where you just have to be able to say no to some things. “saying no means saying yes to something else” – this is a great read about recognizing your limits.
i recently came across some short instructional videos on calligraphy. is that not the most hypnotizing art form to watch? the videos were posted on the blog of sean mccabe, an incredibly talented hand lettering artist. i spent an embarrassing amount of time flipping through his portfolio this week.
this is such a brave and real post. as an introvert, it’s comforting and relatable. and for the extroverts, it opens up the possibility to understand how to love the introverts in your life in the best way. while we’re on the topic, if you haven’t watched this ted talk, you should.
these jimmy marble banners have been around for a while, but i came across his etsy shop this week and noticed his shop description read, “i hope you’re having the best day of your life.” this guy is spreading happiness with his work and i dig that.
i discovered this gold mine of resources. icons, textures, fonts, coding frameworks, all in one place!
you’re probably familiar with a blog about love. while they touch on many topics and struggles i’m not personally able to identify with, the act of loving others is universal and can be applied to any relationship. i’m so thankful someone linked to this audio on twitter of mara and danny discussing the importance of chosing love and being stable in your reactions.
i’ve spent the past few days enjoying all this snow from inside my apartment, but i plan on making my way outdoors in the next few days to experience what may be the last snow of the season. happy weekend to you. stay warm!comment on this post
