When I was only doing paper scrapbooking I downloaded all kinds of fonts to use for journaling. I didn't pay any attention to the licenses that with each font because they were only for personal use. Now that I'm designing digital kits, I'm realizing just how important those licenses are. I really need to know what is okay for commercial use and what isn't. So today I went through all the fonts on my computer and sorted them into commercial use and personal use. It took me most of the afternoon and there are still a few I'm not sure of (I put them in the personal file just to be safe) but now when I use a font to make word art or an alpha, I can be sure I'm not breaking the law. LOL

No not fall, although that is a close second, but the start of hockey season. Registration is done and I am very lucky this year because both my son and daughter are on the same team. They have been playing against each other in hockey school and 3 on 3 and trying to cheer for them both at the same time is a challenge. LOL I'm excited to see them playing on the same team and hopefully I'll get a chance to help out behind the bench like I did last year. We're also looking forward to the start of the NHL season. We used to live in Calgary and are huge fans of the Calgary Flames. Our Saturday night ritual of popcorn and HNIC (Hockey Night in Canada) will be making its return next weekend.
My name is Merrilee and I'm proud to be a hockey Mom!
