Sips and Scripts: Handlettering 101

Saturday, March 26, 2016
Last Monday night after work I got a night away to go get my creative on. I have pretty terrible handwriting naturally, so when I saw a workshop to learn handlettering...aka writing pretty...I was all over it. The workshop was taught through Encourage Huntsville by Jacki Gil who I knew back in my Westminster days. She is a local small business owner (of Salt and Paperie) and has spectacular handlettering skills. The class was taught at Stem and Stein and along with the instructions, pens, paper, and other materials to take home...the event came with a glass of wine. Which is perfect for taking the edge off and anxiety down when learning a new skill.

It was so fun. And the whole handlettering process is not nearly as hard as I thought. It is pretty intuitive really. At the end of the class we were given a blank piece of paper and instructed to practice making a lettered work of art. I did "throw kindness like confetti" which is one of my favorite quotes of all time. It makes me happy and keeps my heart focused on blessing others.

Didn't turn out too shabby for a first attempt at anything like that. Not sure where it will end up at home...right now it is hanging proudly on our magnetic chalkboard in the kitchen...right beside Perry's preschool artwork. lol.
