Last month I was challenged by my talented Hallmark co-worker Meredith Cox to participate in Stefan Kunz's #createdtoday prompt on Instagram and ended up creating a lettering piece that said "Practice." Since then I have really been thinking about what I want to practice this year, and the things I have already accomplished! 

Letters Are Lovely | Practice

Pointed Pen

  • In January I finished going through the alphabet and spending a day working on each letter. This was a great way for me to get back into the practice of using the pointed pen, but now I want to move on to words and quotes! I am hoping that by next year at this time I will be much more comfortable with this tool, I can already see the difference the daily practice last month had on my lettering. 

iPad Pro Lettering

  • I am hoping to have an iPad Pro very soon! I have loved watching other lettering artists create amazing time-lapse pieces, and I know lettering on the iPad would really expand my range and ability to create quickly. If anyone has any tips or great tutorials please send them my way!


  • When I'm traveling I am great at taking pictures and getting them edited. I really enjoy using my DLSR, and I would love to spend more time in my daily life taking pictures. I think my photography skills would continue to grown with more consistent practice. 

Here's to lots of practice in 2018!
