Don’t get excited, I’m not getting married! Here’s just a really good blog about making Origami Cherry Blossoms (which I will be doing a bit later!)

Tyyyypeface ‘e’s got a big typeface…

And he flys fro’ de air cos ‘e’s got a typeface, TYPEFACE!

So selecting a font for the internal information has been pretty easy, had a wee research into which typefaces are easiest to read and after discovering it was Comic sans I went out and got drunk. Not really, it just turns out dyslexics find handwritten typefaces easier to read because they’re more used to it, but many sans-serif fonts are just as good.

The difficulty has been finding a font that I can suitably use on the window. Felt Mistress has a beautiful one she uses on her logo (google her she’s amazing, and very lovely) but it turns out its a custom one, so I have to go back to the drawing board. I’ve been experimenting with some pretty ones from Dafont, but none of them seem 100% right for what I’m thinking, so it looks like I’ll have to make my own. (Secretly pleased). It shouldn’t take too long, being that I only need the one word and I have a rough idea of what I’m after, but you know how these things go; nothing ever comes quickly.


Forgot to mention, rabbit is non-serious but does need more meds. I am a lot happier and as such have been finding it easier to focus.

Silly bunface!
