Smile, it’s Friday! ? I’ve had an amazing week with my son at my parent’s house at the beach, and my husband will be flying down for a day soon to join the fun! I’ve got a lot to smile about this week. How about you? What are you smiling about today?
People tell me all the time that their handwriting is terrible and they could never do calligraphy, but calligraphy and hand lettering are more like art as opposed to everyday handwriting. It takes practice to get better, and nobody starts off lettering masterpieces on day one.
Here’s my rushing out the door handwriting…nothing like my calligraphy! If you’ve ever thought about trying calligraphy but haven’t because you have “bad handwriting”, just get started and see what happens. Sometimes action > perfection. ?
I did my first #pourpaintingof a beach scene yesterday with my grandmom @lizloves2paint (who is very good at this by the way ?). It was a lot of fun to learn a new craft, and I absolutely love how it turned out! ❤️
I’m thinking I might add some lettering to it, or I may just keep it as is. Any suggestions? ?
Sometimes my work really reflects who I am. ?
But really, this is a mirror I did for a friend’s wedding a few years ago, and I saw it hanging up when I went to her house this past weekend. It’s always a huge honor when I see my work displayed in someone’s home. ? Lettered with @sharpie
You know what you should do today? This!
I’ll be taking some time @get_hope ?
Last night I went to see @jenhatmaker & @heatherland_iaintdoinit (and actually got to meet them!!!), and they were hilarious! One of the quotes from Jen was, “When I grow up, I want to be a dad,” and immediately I was like, “oh, I need to remember this quote!” I can totally relate some days! ? My favorite thing about being a dad would be all the extra sleep I would get at night!
What would be your favorite thing? (*Disclaimer, my husband is actually really awesome, but he does get to sleep through the night ?)
This little guy is going off to a local friend today. I hope it brings some extra joy to everyone that stops by their home. ?
My only sunshine ☀️ ?
