how neat is that?

Hey guys!  I wanted to share some things with you that I think are pretty neat.  I generally keep current with my favorite blogs, learning and getting my creative interests peeked.  I recently wanted to change up my header and wanted to use a watercolor font.  I looked and looked and could not find a free font. I, being my cheap dutch self, decided that I would make one instead.  I found a website that showed how to make your favorite font into watercolor using photoshop.  It was super fast and easy.  If you look above, you can see my finished product. Do you like?
With this, I thought that I would share a few of my favorite things from the internet lately.

1//Making your favorite font into a watercolor font.

2//These delicious Hi-Hat Cupcakes from the talented ladies at A Beautiful Mess.

3//How to capture readers attention with your blog.  (I'm still working on this)

4//Searching and searching for good moving out ideas and tips.

5//These captivating DIY Marquee Letters.

6//These yummy homemade tortilla chips from Margeaux over at A Snapshot of today.

What are some things you think are neat?
