No, I'm not at Sweet Shoppe Designs anymore...but I'm doing something better now!

Goodbye to Sweet Shoppe

After having been in the fontography and designing business since 2007,  it is time for me to hang up my designing hat and say goodbye to Sweet Shoppe Designs. It’s been such a pleasure being at the shoppe, getting to know so many extraordinary women, being a part of their lives and their memories, but I’m ready for a huge change!

What does this mean for you?

Can I still get my handwriting done by you?


While I have left the designing world, I still have a heart for helping people find their voices for their own stories in their scrapbooking, and am happy to announce that I am still offering my handwriting font service – for free in some cases here on my blog!

I’ve already ordered a custom font from you. Does this mean it’s not valid anymore?

Not at all! I’ll be honoring any custom and premier handwriting font service purchase through December 31, 2014. But be aware, there may be some delay in returning your font to you because of the influx of fonts anticipated. I’ll do my best to get them back and a timely manner, and I’ll let you know an estimated date of return.

Will your fonts still be available for commercial use?

If you’ve already purchased a font from me for commercial use purposes, then yes, they are available for commercial use, still. The TOU still applies. If you’re like to purchase fonts in the future for commercial use, please check out my Commercial Use FAQ. It has all of the information on how to purchase my fonts for commercial use. You can find my entire catalog at or  Teachers Pay Teachers or FontSpace. You can purchase a webfont of a selection of my fonts at FontSpring.

Where will you be going?

You’ll still see me all over Facebook showing off my scrapbook pages about our life. I’m going to love scrapping full-time again!

But I am changing my business model and you can find me right here with free-for-personal use fonts and options for professional/commercial-use licensing.  You can also check out my fonts at or which will be updated regularly! At Creative Market, you can get licensed fonts if you are uncomfortable using Paypal or want to go through a website. If you’re looking for webfonts, check out Fontspring for my catalog there.

I want to thank you all for being so supportive over all these years. Thanks to Kimberly Geswein for giving me the confidence to go out there on my own, thanks to Robin and the staff at Sweet Shoppe for putting up with me all these years, to Linda Sattgast and the Digital Scrapper team for teaching me that scrapbooking is more about making the memories than it is about the business, and thank to you for sharing your memories with me in all of your scrapbook pages.

  1. Sounds like you are making a brave but difficult decision! Praying for a great transition to this new time in your life!

  2. Best of luck to you, but I can’t pretend I’m not a tiny bit heartbroken…was totally planning to get my little boy’s handwriting “fonted” by you in a few years (so far he’s only almost-mastered L, O & D…he’s only almost-three)!
