Although it’s a little sappy, I love listening to Auld Lang Syne. And every year, I tell myself that I’m going to learn the lyrics. But for now, I’ll just use it for lettering and savor the last few hours of 2014. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe night tonight.

Happy New Year!

As a teacher, I get the great gift of a two week holiday break. And instead of filling it with cookies, candy canes, and Christmas movies (which I adore), I wanted to do something creative with my time.

I was recently encouraged by a friend of mine who took her passion for food photography to the next level with a 30-day food photography challenge. Each day, she completed mini-lessons and challenges that stretched her into an amazing photographer. For reals. You could go check out her portfolio.

Inspired, I’ve decided to build off my interest in typography and print production to participate in the “30 Days to Better Hand-Lettering” course, where I will follow daily prompts and stretch myself to observe and practice lettering every day.
