I struggled with which picture to put first - swipe for the full page and a family shot. I’m using my #homework with @homsweethom for my first ever #fridayintroductions
Because I thought it was appropriate 😊
You can see some of the things I love in the picture... you will not find spiders, green beans or germs on that list... Here’s some random facts about me...
My favorite colors are blues and teals, and pretty much all cool colors. I started lettering when I found brush pens last May. (How have I been missing this my whole 36 years??!!) I discovered Instagram then too...so I’m fairly new to this. However, I’ve loved art forever and before staying at home with my daughters, I was a teacher -first special education and then art. I love teaching art and seeing how much creativity can come out of someone. I love being outside and seeing nature and I like to incorporate it into my art. Watercolors are my new favorite medium (even though I have an art degree, I never used them until this past summer.) I love my family and being a mom is my favorite thing in the world!
If you’ve read to the end, thanks! Let me know what we have in common!
I loved seeing so many #calligrafriends start @homsweethom’s #homwork challenge this week with their name surrounded by things they love, so I decided I had to join. This is SUPER rough, but I wanted to create something and post it before everyone starts in on the prompt for next week. Happy Friday everyone!
I was challenged by one of my #calligrabesties Gina, @featherparklettering to letter something quick using food as part of Stefan’s @stefankunz #createdtoday challenge. So I chose a grape 🍇! You can letter on food, or use food to create letters, whatever tickles your fancy. Lettering on a freaking grape was hard, guys —-like an ornament shrunk down 10 sizes 😂 but it was fun! The whole point of this is to not spend too much time doing it, and to not care if it’s not perfect! Two things I need to work on, personally. I challenge @emilyslettering @moi_rocnodelo @squidinkle .
I’ll save the sappy caption and leave it at THANK YOU for following me for whatever that reason may be. I don’t think my mind will ever stop being blown at how fast this number keeps growing now. Y’all rock.
Hello fellow lettering peeps! I love that a new year brings motivation to set new goals or even just switch things up so that you can focus more time on the things that bring you joy. For me, that's lettering! I'm determined to spend more time this year doing this creative outlet that I love so much. Starting with this fun challenge from @homsweethom ~ I'm a little late to the party with this #HOMwork assignment, but better late than never, right?! 😉 As you can see, my name is Denise and these are some of my favorite things. 😊 Do you share any of the same interests?
👋🏼 I don’t think I’ve ever done a Friday introduction! My name is Nicole and I have been hand lettering since 2014. I am originally from Texas (and Arkansas!!) but live in NYC now with my husband Patrick and our two cats. When I’m not at work or at home lettering, you can find me walking and exploring this city, finding unique restaurants and cocktail bars, or at the movies. My favorite spot in NYC is Washington Square Park (or Greenwich Village in general), favorite restaurant is Casa Apicii, and favorite bar is Welcome to the Johnsons (dive bar) or Cafe Dante (cocktail bar - their bergamot negroni is amazing!). Here’s a pic of my husband, Patrick, and I from a beautiful wedding this past summer.
Week One assignment for the #HOMwork Challenge ✔️ The assignment was to letter your name surrounded by things that you love. It’s been fun seeing everyone else’s on the gram. I’ve also noticed that I share the love of naps with a lot of other lettering peeps 💤Maybe those naps directly correlate with creativity 🤷🏻♀️ Maybe not. But they are still my favorite part of the day.
If you haven’t seen these floating around already, you can still sign up for her Challenge emails through @homsweethom ’s profile! She has been such a huge inspiration for me and I’m so excited to be participating 😊
