Friday Faves: Your Weekly Dose of Blog Design Inspiration from http://www.DesignYourOwnBlog.com

Your Weekly Dose of Blog Design Inspiration!

Hold on!

Wasn’t it just summer…like yesterday?

How is it possible that it’s November first already?! Where has this year gone??

This blog has been in existence now for a full quarter! And now it’s almost time to start planning for next year, aaaaack!

For those of you who don’t know, Friday Faves is a collection of lovely freebies and design stuff I’ve found throughout the week. It’s usually a sampling of what I share on my Facebook page so be sure to like me there for even more cool stuff!

DYOB Update

So sorry to those of you who received an RSS email the other day about last Friday’s Friday Faves. I set something wrong in MailChimp, so big FAIL! Thank you for not unsubscribing!

I’ll admit, as much as LOVED supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month, I am kinda glad to be rid of the pepto header and back to aqua!

I tried really hard to get a new This Month’s Web Design Term in before month’s end, but it didn’t happen :[ so it’ll come out early next week instead.

Favorite Friday Font

Free version of Caecilia Light

Free version of Caecilia Light

While browsing this week, I came upon this font, named Caecilia that I really liked. It’s perfect for body copy and there’s something really clean and open about this slab serif font.

It’s expensive if you buy the whole lot ($252.00) but I found ONE weight that you can download for free. I searched to make sure this site was legit and I didn’t find anything to the contrary so if you’d like it, you can download Caecilia LT Std 45 Light for free.

Free Downloads
