Hello March with more daylight and warmer temperatures...

The end of February was marked with more longer days (a.k.a. more daylight)and warmer temperatures (an average of 5-12 degrees Celsius which can be considered a warm winter in Scotland😉). Despite being still in lockdown here, I feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful place and get the chance to go for a lovely walk everyday surrounded by nature. Nature is my number one go-to (lettering is obviously my number 2 😉) to get positive energy, recharge the batteries and feel connected. I hope, wherever you are, that you too, get to enjoy some of that.


Apart from going on a daily walk, I've also been working 😉. Here are a few things I managed to do:


New content on the website + YouTube videos

I have added a few freebies (click here to get the freebies) that can help you with your calligraphy practice :

  • a selection of guidelines that are useful to place your words/letters - for pointed pen and brush pens;

  • 15 ways to letter Thank You;

  • downloadable & printable I love you card (one ready to send and one for you to trace over); you can also visualise the making off on Instagram.

  • printable practice sheet with the Basic Strokes, which are the foundation in modern calligraphy and help you build muscle memory. I have also made a video going through each basic strokes in details and showing in which letters they can be found. The video is available on my YouTube channel.



Finally, I worked on a few new designs for sending some love on Mother's day. I know for some people it is a tough period and I can relate to that as I lost my mum in March 2013. But if you're lucky as I am, you may have had the chance to have a second mum and I celebrate her every year for the beautiful soul she is and for taking care of me as her own daughter. Yet as I'm not originally from Scotland/UK, I don't send my card in March but on the 2nd Sunday of May (as it is celebrated in Belgium 😉).




I'll upload more content in the coming weeks. Until then I wish you a lovely week.
