Focusing on Life Week 23: Typography

I didn't think I was going to get a chance to post for this week's prompt, but here I am. When I saw the prompt, Typography, I was immediately excited because I've got a thing for words and fonts and whatnot. You should see me scroll through the list of fonts in Word or PhotoShop anytime I've got a chance to make something a little different. It's always a task to pick one that conveys just the right feeling.
However, as the week wore on, I just wasn't struck by the lettering on any print or sign in my environment, so I was resigned to let another week slip by. As we are currently enjoying a slow Saturday morning; me sitting in front of my laptop while the hubby tinkers with his new metal lathe in the garage, it occured to me that I could be blogging. So I pondered what words have made the most impact on me this week and it became quite clear what my photo subject should be.

Yup, one of my designs was accepted into Jewelry Stringing magazine again, and I'm pleased as punch. Like last time, you'll find it in the bracelet gallery section.

I think that's as short and sweet as I need to make today's post. You can see more examples of Typography for this week's Focusing on Life series on Sally's blog, The Studio Sublime.
