It's hard to believe but yes some things in life are free. I got a new laptop this year and when I switched from my old one to my new one I lost all my nifty fonts I had collected over the years that I use when typing up my journalling. Well guess what, I found website that has over 280 different fonts that are completely free and available for donwload. You don't even have to create a login account to get them. How awesome is that?!


So needless to say I have spent the last several days downloading almost every one and I am in the midst of slowly installing them on my laptop. If you have never done this before it is pretty easy.

1. Download the WIN verson of the font and save it some where you will remember
2. Find the folder you downloaded and double click it to open it
3. The file will open in a zip program, extract the files. You should now see them in the same spot as where you downloaded the zip file to.
4. Copy the font file. This will be the file that ends with .tff. You do not need any other files.
5. Go to C:\Windows\Fonts and paste the file there
6. Once the copying is done, you are done installing that font.

See wasn't that easy? Now you will have access to that font in almost every program you have on you computer (ie: Microsoft Word and Adobe Photoshop)

Happy Journalling!

Scrap - Palooza

Last weekend my friend Susan came down for a visit and to scrapbook all weekend. My focus was Christmas '08. I can't believe I am so up to date. I guess that means I should get back to everyone else's books and update them too ... it's just that it isn't as fun as my own stuff.

Here's some of the layouts I did, I will post more once I finish them. I think my favorite out of all of them is the Skating Rink one. I love how it came together plus everyone's silly faces.

Chez Jen

Here's a picture of one of my favorite rooms in my house; my scrapbook room.

One of the best parts of moving is that I actually have a scrapbook room now, instead of an unfinished corner of a dark basement. I'm sure once kiddies come along, I will be banished back to the basement again but until that time I am enjoying this.

I got new tables for my scrapbook room after my old table became an unfortunate victim of a scrapbook weekend. They match my storage cubes and I am so happy with the final look. They were a really good deal, both for $140, although I need to save a couple more pennies to get glass tops for them in order to protect the finishes.
