A light heart doesn’t carry any unnecessary burdens, stories we should’ve let go of. Every thought we have is connected to something in our past. Every experience we’ve had makes us who we are, and our next stories will shape us again until we can’t remember what it was like to be a blank page, to not have weights in our hearts, when we were able to think and act without influence. A light heart creates new experiences instead of building on old ones. Relieve yourself of heavy thoughts. Be light. 💛

Day 20 of the #positivepowerlettering challenge with @conceptcalligraphy @doodlingdarling @paperblobs
I am experimenting with softer shadow lines lately instead of the harsh dark ones I love doing. Seems like they give my pieces a softer look.
Doing a bit of catching up on #30daysofflourish pulling out brown pens from all the jars. I just got these Koi brush markers so it's nice I try them out. I'm still trying to get a hang of this flourishing but I do think I like the fat florishes (super technical term there) to the dainty super loopy and thin ones. I find them beautiful when other folks do them but I know they aren't really my style (though I'd still like to not suck at them). I swear this being a mom of boys just seeps into every part of my life...interior design, lettering, clothes I'll take sturdy over flirty any day #brushletteringpractice
Pumpkins! Pumpkins! Get your pumpkins!
I have some magic fairies that have been finding more leaves and pumpkins for me so I’m able to have some available to you on Instagram and Etsy! They’ll be available for purchase this weekend. Any particular phrases you’d like to see?
'Alea Iacta Est'
In English; 'The Die is Cast'. It was Caesar's baller quote as he took his armies across the Rubicon and began the Roman civil war that changed the world. Put this shit on my gravestone.
If you want to see the making of, head to the third panel!!
