Dingbats are kind of the scourge of the fonts world, which is unsurprising since the majority of them are downright terrible…unless you’re into poorly drawn cartoon or stripper themed sets? And yet the good ones can actually be quite useful for mockups or for enhancing design projects in a quick and painless way. Here are a few great dingbat fonts that fit the bill in my book – hope you find them useful as well!

Thank you all so much for the sweet comments on my previous post!! Hopefully your encouraging words will help me dig down deep and kick some butt this year :-)
I usually despise the winter season – walking around with frozen fingers and toes isn’t much of a party – but for some reason I’m kind of digging the peaceful coziness of our home this year. Laying out on the beach is fab, but so is being wrapped up in a giant blanket on the couch with a pot of homemade soup bubbling away on the stove, amirite? Here are a few of my favorite winter highlights, along with some awesome free fonts to download – enjoy!

Hey strangers! As you might have already guessed, we had SO much fun on our trip to Taiwan and Japan! We hiked through the breathtaking misty mountains in Taipei, shopped til we dropped in Tokyo, ate takoyaki all over Osaka, and visited beautiful shrines and temples in Kyoto…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! I’m still sifting through our photos (with a bad case of jet lag to boot), but I’ll be sharing all of our adventures very soon :-)
In the meantime, it’s so nice to come back home to autumn, my favorite season of the year! I really need to start brainstorming for Toby’s costume ASAP. On a side note: I had no idea Halloween was celebrated in Japan, so it was really surprising to see lots of spooky treats & decorations and people dressed up in costumes all over the place. We passed a cafe where all the baristas were wearing pumpkin costumes, and I rode the subway one morning next to two “dead” school girls, complete with zombie contact lenses, presumably on their way to school. Hard core!
