And like that…It’s November – 1st Week of November – Minimal for Function

And like that…It’s November. What in the world? It’s November! I just got used to writing 2017 as the year. We are in the thick of holiday season (or very near to the thick – is that a thing?) and I am definitely relying on my minimalistic weekly designs to guide me through this busy time of year.  I decided this month to start at the beginning of the month instead of half the week’s spread from October and the other half as November. So I ended up with a couple of half-week layouts. I had big plans for the start […]

You, wake up, be incredible motivational quote

Emphasis on the RIGHT Words

I love lettering. That activity propelled me to get into finding and doing things that I love to help me be a better person. What is lettering? Lettering is a form of drawing each letter instead of writing. It’s called many things.

Each person has their own style. There are more fonts in the world than we could ever count. And I am not a pro {yet} by any […]

New York City Skyline Weekly Layout

I found a new love. Skylines. I sometimes play a game called “Cities: Skylines” but that is another story. For an Instagram challenge this month, I’ve done a couple skyline outlines and, well, it carried over to my weekly theme. My weeklies start on Monday. As I was planning the weeks, I noticed that 9/11 was on a Monday this year. The date stuck out to me. September 11 is very emotional to me. I truly consider it “the day the world stopped turning”. I remember watching in horror when the second plane hit the building after the first was […]

Power Word Art

Power Word Art

If you don’t know by now, I am a font nut. I love finding new fonts of all shapes & sizes. So participating in a lettering challenge affords me the opportunity to use a variety of fonts.  The @happyletteringchallenge #happyletteringchallenge for July has one word to letter everyday. Today was “Power”. I found a new font called Savaro Typeface on Creative Market that really fit the word ‘power’ in my opinion. Power to me means strength, authority, and confidence. I am not referring to power-hungry people, or those who use power for ill-will. But the power I think of is […]

June Creativity Challenges 2017

June 2017 Creativity Challenges

I think of a challenge as something that stretches your limits, makes you better, identifies points of weakness to enhance and perfect. June 2017 was my first month of participating in any sort of challenge on Instagram. I found several that I really enjoyed. Follow me on Instagram to see them as they happen! I participated in several challenges. I came in late to the game for a couple of them and I didn’t participate all days for all events so here are all my ‘entries’ if you may. I really look forward to future challenges and may eventually create […]
