Thanksgiving Fonts

As you may know, I don't have my camera at the moment, so the next 2 weeks are going to be filled with "creative" non-outfit posts. Since Thanksgiving is coming up, I thought I would do a post on some seriously awesome fonts that you can add to your computer's library. For you graphic design lovers like me, you'll love this. I've found two more sites that have free, downloadable fonts, and there is like 50,000 different ones on every site - so I figured I'd round up my favorite ones for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Some may ask, why do I need to add more fonts to my library? Well, because typography is awesome! If you have Adobe Illustrator like me, then you'll know the struggle and frustration of not having the particular font you want. Having different types of fonts opens up your creative process and is super helpful when you make invitations to all of your fun Thanksgiving parties! Pleaseee email me or comment in the section below if you have any questions or need help installing your awesome new fonts! 

**Note: I would caution you to make sure you download fonts from websites with high "Downloaded" numbers!

• How to install dowloaded fonts on PC:
     - Windows 8

• How to install downloaded fonts on Mac:

If you are downloading fonts on your Mac, this process is pretty easy. The easiest way to do it is by using the application "Font Book." 
(If at the end you can still not follow these instructions, see this video.)

1.) Open "Font Book" in your Application folder.

2.) Click the "+" on the top of the tool bar.

3.) Find the dowloaded font (I sent mine straight to my desktop so I could find them easily) and select 
the folder or ".ttf" file --> Then click "Open."

4.) Next, because you downloaded it from the internet, it is going to tell you that "problems have been found 
during validation." This is OKAY.  Just click "Select all fonts" and then click "Install Checked."
