#14 in an ongoing series of posts celebrating the alphabet.
When the writing gets tough, the tough go alphabet shopping.
Actually I don’t usually wait till things get tough.
See, I was once a Brownie. And our motto, just like the boys, was "Be prepared."
Life is so unpredictable. You just never know when you might need a good alphabet hit. Keep those 26 friends close by, I always say. Why, just hearing the words, "letter," "typography," "typeset," or "lower case" sends shivers up my spine, not to mention the all-time seducer (which I hesitate to mention in mixed company) — font. Say it with me, friends: font, font, font!
*swoon* *fans self* *reaches for smelling salts*
While you’re composing yourself, check out these decidedly cool things, all available from geniune-for-real artisans at Etsy.com. No big factories, no mass production. Whenever possible, I like to support independent artists. It’s back-to-school time. What better way to learn your ABCs?

And the best for last: PMC (precious metal clay/.999 silver) bracelets by Live Journal’s very own Laura Ludwig Hamor, who just opened a brand new Etsy Shop called Silver Freckles! Each piece is hand stamped, sanded, polished, and attached to a black leather cord. Wear one at all times for enhanced creativity!
Okay, that’s your alphabet fix for the week. Go forth and order something! ☺
