Calligraphy 101

Start where you are

Start where you are


So first of all, Happy 2015!

It's taken me quite a bit of time to get back into the swing of things after having TWO short work weeks in a row, thanks to the holidays. Let's be real-I'm still not back 100% but I'm trying PEOPLE!

Anyway, I can't say that I'm a fan of New Year's Resolutions. I really don't know anyone who has ever kept one, and I am pretty deficient in will power. So this year, I didn't even PRETEND to make one. Especially the usual ones-like Oh now I'm gonna get all fit & go on a juice cleanse. I actually did that 2 years ago and it was a LIVING NIGHTMARE. I lasted 4 days.

So instead, I'm just trying to make more of an effort to do things that make me happy. Starting with CALLIGRAPHY! I've always wanted to learn and Matt got me this kit for Christmas, so no excuses. I have been practicing nightly the last few days and you know what? I LOVE IT!

If you have an inkling (pun intended!) that you'll love it, too, I highly recommend you go for it and order the same kit and learn along with me. It's not cheap, but as a complete newbie, it was so nice not having to go out and buy all the supplies on my own. You'll have everything you need to jump right into the tutorials. For a lazy one like myself, that was priceless.

So stay tuned for updates and progress reports and hopefully, I can turn this hobby into a full blown career. Just Kidding. Kind of. OHMYGOSHALLIWANNADOISWORKFROMHOME!
