I'll type your face.

Y'all! I entered a contest. I never do that. 
But this one got me all excited.
Not crotchally excited.
Just aesthetically excited. 
Big difference.
Have a look:
Design Sponge, one of my fave sites ever in the history of sites, asked for their readers to submit their own original alphabet designs. I was all over it. 
Although I will say, I'm not overly confident about what I came up with. 
They just need some sprucing up or something.
It's probably because of the lack of color. 
Too plain for me. 
Anyways, I'll stop nit picking my work & just show them to you!

This one is called Mother Father. I don't know why I called it that. Just go with it. 
here's Big Booty! It sounded fun & playful & the B reminds me of a butt.
I'm calling this one "Hollow" because it's like, hollow. 
 & Lackadaisical 
Ok, so I may not win anything but at least I tried, right? And for that, I'm proud of myself. 
It's good practice to put myself out there. 

I just read on twitter that there are over 400 submissions. Whoa. They are going to choose 10 finalists this week & then it's up to the public to vote for their favorite. I can't wait to see what they choose. 
I friggin love typography.

I whipped this up the other day for a home show I'm going to be a part of!
They do have an official graphic for it but for some reason it wouldn't let me save it as a picture. Whatevs.
Anyways- you should totally come if you live anywhere near here. By the way, it's in Weaverville, not BFE. It's only 6 miles from downtown. (Plus, you can swing by Well Bred Bakery & pick up a Mountain Eclair- which is the size of a baby head). There's going to be all sorts of handmade goodies that you will die over. I'm talkin' jewelry, art, pottery, handbags, glass bongs, crocheted thongs, & the finest meth in town! Ok, I lied about some of those. 
Feel free to grab the pic & spread it around the internet. Tell all your homeys & people you may or may not know in real life.

I know there's more I wanted to tell you but my eyes are rolling into the back of my head & I almost drooled on my laptop. I am so attractive right now.

You should definitely be peddling these to the digital scrapbooking crowd. I love "lackadasical" and "big booty." You rule.
