Heather Joyce: At the Apple Store


I got to hang out with Heather (and Mr. Joyce) at CHA and Disneyland in January! Heather is as sweet and helpful in real life as she has been all of the years I’ve known her online. Mr. and Mrs. Joyce are ADORABLE together and we had a lot of fun!  Heather has been a great addition to our team here at The Daily Digi.  Heather has a wide variety of styles of fonts from typewriter to doodles, she has it all.  I am so thrilled to welcome her back to The Digi Files this month.  Let’s take a closer look at “The Sassy Class v.1” that is included in The Digi Files this month:

Hiya. My name is Heather Joyce (used to be Hess). The hubs and I live in Austin, Texas with our precious pups, Paco the Chihuahua and Fiona the Westie.




During Digital Scrapbooking Day (Weekend) last year, there was an All About Me challenge at The-Lilypad. I decided it was time to update and threw this page together. It was a lot of fun to take advantage of the speech bubbles with this background paper.


I started digital. I had some customers (at the Apple store) that wanted to customize the photo books they were trying to make in iPhoto. I suggested using Keynote to make their books. Then when I took a Digital Image Illustration class, I searched for some images and found some digital sites. Made some images in Photoshop, but nothing scrapbook like. Then one day I took the dive and started scrapbooking. Been hooked ever since.

Designing came a bit later. I started with a font program on my iPad but then wanted more and switched to creating on the computer.

Handwriting. When I was younger I would sit in front of the TV with a journal and write alphabets. I have what some people call Serial Killer’s handwriting, meaning it’s always different. I have a pretty standard one but on a moments notice it can change.

I also have a love affair with Typewriters. They are amazing. When living in New York City, I had my handful of thrift shops where I would stop by to check on availability and hopefully add some to the collection. I haven’t searched much here, but I have people around the country that keep an eye open for me. I love how different they can type based on the year, model, or ribbon. It’s such a blast and I enjoy preserving this classic bit of history.

Computer: I have a 15 inch MacBook Pro (2.66 i7 with 8 gigs of ram) and an 11 inch MacBook Air (1.6 Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 gigs of ram)
Program: I use Photoshop CS6, iPhoto, and Keynote ‘09 and Spotify. Gotta have those tunes pumping!

Camera: I have a Nikon d700. For lenses I have a Nikon16-35mm f4, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, Nikon 60mm 4/2.8 macro, Sigma 15mm f/2.8 fisheye, and a Nikon 28-105mm f/3.5-4/5. But mostly I use my iPhone with snapseed, picfx, and instagram.

Anything Else: I also have an iPad Mini (16 GB), a bunch of Hard Drives, and a handful of typewriters.
Take pictures! There are no rules around p365, p52, or photo-a-days. They are there to help be inspiration to help capture your every day life. Don’t feel like you have to start on the first of the year, or a month, or a special day. Start taking photos now! I kick myself everyday for not doing an official 365 last year. But! I will say I captured photos I may not have without having the mentality form the year before. Also, back up your photos!

This font was created on a Royal FP Typewriter circa 1961. By the time came around to address invitations for my wedding, I knew I would do them on a typewriter. I found this beast at my favorite thrift store 2 avenues away from my apartment in New York. I say beast because it weights about 28 pounds, and this was not the only typewriter I purchased on this trip. After addressing the envelopes, it became my favorite typewriter and is the one that sits on my typewriter table in the living room.

This font was created with a mint green 1950s Hermes Rocket typewriter. It was the first of my collection and one of my first typewriter fonts. I found this beauty in Brooklyn (at the Brooklyn Flea Market) and it came complete with typewriter table. I then carried it home on the subway (taking two trains and 6 blocks).
