I am in love with AND love that Jessica Hische’s newest typeface creation shares a name with my hometown of Minot, North Dakota. A pretty face by one of the best letterers EVER? Could Minot get any luckier?!

free typeface! olé!

I found this typeface this evening via Behance Network, and I’m completely diving into it. Very fun. The best part is, it’s FREE to download (one of my favorite things = SWEET FREE FONTS, not to be confused with CRAPPY FREE FONTS)!

Here’s the fun I’ve had with it tonight…pretty simple:
PS // I couldn’t resist making my Valentine’s banner early! What can I say, February is probably my favorite month… ; )

Early Risings

TODAY IS OFF TO A GREAT START—I spent the morning at my clients’ apartment helping them get ready for work. As much as I admit to not being a morning person, I very much enjoy being a part of their routine. They add the jet pack I need to boost my day!
I grabbed coffee after my shift, and it was only 9am. Nine! And to think of everything I’d already accomplished. Normally before nine I sleep and sometimes get myself ready for the day. When I got home I felt motivated to do the things I helped with earlier in the morning: Make my bed, put my clothes away, eat a healthy breakfast, and be thankful for my wellness.
Now at the library, I’m giddy about the discovery of a landmine of design books on the “New Books” shelf. I checked out three and I’m looking forward to devouring them when I get off work tonight…
The books I checked out…

& a lovely day to all —
