Font Fabulousness, No. 2

Sometimes I get in the mood for a few new, fun fonts. And man, I found some goodies.

Here's my eight favorite finds:

How I install a font:

(There might be an easier way, but this is how I do it . . . )
(Also, I'm using a PC. I don't know how to do this on a Mac. It's probably similar, but I'm not sure. If you know, feel free to share the info in a comment!)

1. Download the file and save it somewhere that you can find easily.
2. Usually fonts will come in zip files. Open the zip file and drag the TTF file (True Type Font file) onto your desktop.
3. Next, do a search for where the installed fonts folder is stored in your computer. For my computer, it's in "appearance and personalization" in the control panel.
4. After you open the installed fonts folder, simply drag in the TTF file from your desktop.

  2. P.S. I'm your newest follower. And I love the name of your blog "Happy Tulip". :)

  3. Love the "Champangne & Limosines" and "Starry Night" fonts! I also didn't know how on earth to install them on my computer, so thanks for sharing the instructions. Think I'll try it tonight.

    Do you have any sites where one can get free fonts that you'd suggest?

  4. Absolutely! Here are a few of my favorites:
