Drop caps how-to


id you see my pre-Mother's Day post on May 7th?  If not, scroll down to it.  Isn't the first letter fancy?  Hey, just like the "D" to the left is fancy in "Did?"

Aren't you wondering how I jazzed up my "D?"

Simply stuff, fabulous blog reader.  Just visit Daily Drop Cap, choose your letter and follow the instructions below each letter.  It does require copying and pasting HTML code, but its 2011, I am confident you can do that, yes?

This drop cap stuff is thoroughly entertaining to me. 

Grinning from ear-to-ear,


PS - Do you think I could use the drop cap letters to make more DIY artwork for my classroom?  Remember this post here?  My wheels are spinning.


  1. I love everything about this! It's a great way for students to jazz up their writing. So many times I catch them doodling around their papers, this would be a great way to incorporate doodles, without looking messy.
