It is really easy to postpone your life because you are waiting for perfection. We wait for everything in our lives to be in sync, but life is messy and beauty can still come out of chaos, it can come from mess and all the imperfections thrown your way. Just show up. Just dream and try and fail and fail again and start where you are.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • • • #calligraphy #folkcreative #handlettering #thatsdarling #communityovercompetition #flashesofdelight #liveauthentic #pursuepretty #christiancreative #letteringpractice #communityovercompetition #dailylettering #magicmonday #risingtidesociety #lovelysquares #honeybook #wearethecreativeeconomy #ipadlettering #tilinsiders #makewaves #embracethemess
I’ve been so grateful for each and every one of you who have supported me through comments, likes, follows and purchases through my shop. I have hand-lettered thousands of items this year. The statement that every-time you purchase from a small business they do a little happy dance, totally true. . Here’s a custom order of ornaments each individually handwritten. I love the phrases they choose, which is your favorite? This ribbon was removed and replaced with velvet!
Between @MorganHarperNichols and @brenebrown these ladies have given me all the feels this week. . I love New Years, the fresh start of a calendar. A new word. As we approach the end of 2019, I’m trying to determine what works and what doesn’t. This year was built on a whole lot of hustling. I’m fueled by tasks and to-do lists. But, I’ve unfortunately started defining myself by the hustle. The success of the weekend is determined by how much of my list is highlighted. The only time I stop creating is when my physical body shuts down and lately that’s more often than I’d like to admit. . Having said these things... what do you think my word should be for 2020? Rest? Intention? Focus? Balance? Play? I’d love your input.
