Font Shopping

There is something very addicting about shopping for new fonts! I am in the midst of purchasing new fonts for our 2012 designs and it's such a tough choice. I am in awe of these amazing artist's talent! So how do I shop for new fonts? I look at the trends of course but I also look at what inspires the artist in me. If I can look at a font and see it in action without ever stepping foot in Illustrator than I know I have found a keeper!! So look out, new fonts, new designs and new fun items are coming your way from Belle Announcements!

Our Elf on a Shelf

I am truly amazed at the power of this small Elf in my house. I would have thought that my 5 year old would start to doubt a stuffed creatures power. I would  have guessed that she would compare this Elf to her 400 other stuffed characters and start to question... but alas, to her delight, he continues causing mischief in our house. Our 2 1/2 year old has jumped on board 110% and thinks Elf is the silliest Elf ever. Today she said, Elf is silly, all while covering her mouth and giggling like a sweetheart.

So to the toy genius behind Elf on a Shelf, I give you accolades!! And thank you pinterest for taking up hours of my time searching for ways my curious Elf can entertain my child.
