It's gratitude week over @calligrabasics so I wanted to thank the people behind #LetsColorNovember (@calligraphylovemnl @lettersofmeeya @park.letters @letteritwrite ) for their awesome challenge. 😊 Because of weeks 2 & 3 I was "forced" to practice my @tombowph pens and bring color to my IG feed haha 😂 But it was really fun! 😊 .
P.S. Special mention to Ms. Leah of @calligraphylovemnl for the stained glass inspiration 😍 I was only using silver and white pens as accents but now I will definitely add gold to the list ☺️
I’ve been taking a little break this week to spend time with my family. I have some orders stacking up. I know the holidays don’t last long, so it looks like I’ll be very busy next week! 😊#blessed#thanksgiving#thankful
Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating it! I might be pie-focused today, but wanted to let you know I’m so grateful for all of you - this has been a major year of growth for my own fine art work, and the online art community has been such a source of inspiration and support for me. Just know you’re all the best. ❤️🥧🥧🥧

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to my American friends! Enjoy spending time with your family and loved ones. For me, the Christmas season is the best time of the year!
In other news.....I doubt I’ll ever vent an apple pie the old way again 💗🎉. I’m so so so so so very grateful to whoever came up with the first apple pie. Brilliant!! #happythanksgiving friends!! And to all my friends that are not American and dont celebrate thanksgiving....go eat turkey and pie because it’s awesome!!! #designspiration#calligrabasics#cb_gratitude
Good morning. Another piece i did this weekend at my workshop with @marinepsm and i must say that this was my favourite. I am pretty proud of the outcome. And the message is also a beautiful one because sometimes we forget to be grateful for all the little things in our lifes and take them for granted. So looks out for all the tiny little happiness sources you have in your life! @calligrabasics #calligrabasics#cb_gratitude
Every now and then I get a message in my inbox from someone asking where and how should they begin with brush calligraphy. I ALWAYS tell them, get a pack of Camlin or add gel brushpens and JUST START. Despite my free and selfless promotion for add gel brushpens :p a lot of people still don't know about it's existence and usage. So this post is an ode to my favourite, sasta sundar and tikau Add Gel Brushpen. (This one is frayed AF, but I still use it, cause ❤)

Honestly there are some days that are tougher than others. Everyone know that. Everyone has days like that. Today was good. This week has been good! But some work days are just so hard when you have people who seem nearly impossible to work with, who put you down to make themselves feel better. I often find myself wondering why I am there. But conversations with my coworkers about why things are different in my life. Why my marriage is full of love and hope. Why I continue to work hard despite difficult things. Because of Christ. I am thankful for the job I have. For the home I live in. For a wonderful husband, great family, and fantastic friends. But I am oh so thankful for Christ, for His strength for each day as I await eternity.
This one has been in my shop for a bit, and is available with or without flowers! Also thanks for reading my rambling.
