Friday Favorites–Now I Know my ABCs

I love typography.  I can spend half the day just looking at fonts.  There are words and letters as décor throughout my house, and not even as much as I would like.  There’s something beautiful and powerful about the written word.  But in order to get there, we have to start by teaching the basics to the kidlets.  Fortunately, there are SO many creative ways to do that.
