Just finished my first #homwork assignment where I share a bit about myself and the things I am passionate about. I was challenged by this because I wanted to spell out my husbands, my son’s, my daughter’s, and my fur baby’s names but instead I just lumped them all into the most important and meaningful thing in my life—family. Somehow, though, family just seems so benign in comparison to how much I love and care for all of them, and how much I cherish having them in my life.... Fairytale Cottage is my home that I am absolutely obsessed with, and each new home project that I complete (and I do a lot of them 😉) makes me love my home even more! Couple that with the fact that I live up the street from the beach, well, life doesn’t get better than that. That’s why I wrote love and life, because really, I’m passionate about those things. I’m a minimalist at heart (as you can see from my artwork 😂) and I just really appreciate the smallest things! Some other things I love:
curling up next to the wood stove when it’s snowing and freezing outside, a warm summer’s day, candles, crystals, tarot cards, nature, and collecting leather journals. I’m sure I left something important out, but I’ll share it on a Friday introduction sometime! 😀

Just thought I would share my packaging style. This one is being hand-delivered to my client and not mailed, that's why there's no address on the outside of the box. The colors of my branding are white and red, so all of my packaging is too. And I'm always sure to add a nice custom thank you gift in the box with every order. On this order, I wrote my clients name on a rock because she's a very earthy-crunchy kind of woman. 😉

FUN FACT FRIDAY: Did you know that the word Triskaidekaphobia means fear of the number 13? Ya, I wasn’t going to attempt to write that one in a video! 😳There’s also a name for the reason of the fear called Paraskevidekatriaphobia. Haha, or that one! 😮I also learned that Stephen King, of all people, is afraid of Friday the 13th! How bizarre! 🤔Who else is afraid of Friday the 13th? * * * #fridaythe13th #calligraphyvideo #letteringvideo #ipadletteringvideo #ipad #procreate #applepencil #handwritten #handlettering #calligraphy #moderncalligraphy #loftfullofletters #funfactfriday

Happiness is homemade! Isn’t this so true? It’s so nice to be given something that has had so much thought, time, and love put into it. That’s why the imperfections are so easily overlooked! Homemade doesn’t equal perfect—it equals love. ❤️ Have you ever been given something homemade that wasn’t perfect, but meant the world to you? What was it?

Wow! All you letterers out there are talented!! 😳I love to watch you letter and to see the beautiful and inspiring art you post every day. And I’m also so grateful for all that you teach and share. It’s so awesome!! ❤️ But I have to be honest and say that every once in a while, I do find myself comparing my work to yours and then I get discouraged. 🙁 So here is how I fix that problem: I pull this affirmation out, along with my very first thing I ever calligraphed, and I remin...d myself that I really have come a long way, that I need to be patient and loving with myself, and that we are all on a very different journey—one that I simply need to observe as my own journey unfolds right in front of me. 😀 I often remind myself, whatever it is, it’s all good! 👍🏻 Shoot me a comment below to tell me how YOU deal with it when you compare yourself to others. ⬇️

Loved doing this name for a client with a five year old boy! She’s framing it for his bedroom with an underwater sea theme. So cool!! Did I mention that names are my favorite thing to letter? ❤️ They’re so personal and meaningful. So much goes into picking a name—I just love honoring that! 👶🏻😊

Ok, so before you say that this isn’t a positive affirmation, I will admit that it isn’t exactly an affirmation that’s universal. 🤔 But for me, it’s an affirmation alright! 😁 It’s wicked cold here in eastern MA, but I’m fortunate, and am celebrating the fact that I have two wood stoves stoked and pumping tons of warm, toasty air in my house!! 🔥🔥I’ve been hibernating the past couple of days and it’s perfectly awesome!!! ❄️ Hope all of you are keeping warm, too!! 🙏💕

Here’s my New Year’s 2018 Resolution:
1. Personal: To calligraph something positive every day, so I can see the positive side of things! Yes, I plan to share them with all of you!! 🙂
2. Business: To learn my iPad Pro and Procreate (and all its tips and tricks😉) inside and out, so I can easily share my art with the world!! 🤗(And to post more videos, so you can watch me create my posts and learn the tips and tricks, too, if you want to!😮😀)
Well, that’s the plan, so hold me accountable. 😘 I’m counting on you to help keep me focused, ok?
I’d love to hear your resolution, so share it in the comments!! ⬇️

Sending out holiday cards!! Our family is so eclectic and celebrates so many different holidays at this time of year, that I have to come up with so many designs! I’m not complaining. It’s fun, and stretches me to see what I can actually come up with. 😀✍🏻
