CHRISTMAS WORDS AND WISHES

Blog Layout Christmas

I think I’ve used FaLaLaLa, Let it Snow and Ho, Ho, Ho on more or less everything this year – tags, cards and personalised email messages to friends, the list goes on!

All of these messages and words are instant digital downloads and come as .png files and PS brushes so you can stamp them anywhere and everywhere, print them out at home and you’re done! It really couldn’t be easier and they look gorgeous. Christmas Volume 2 also include some silver and gold metallic effect options just because we could all do with a little bit of sparkle at this time of the year.

And … and … there are New Year wishes available too for those looking ahead to 2016 with some bonus ‘Falling Stars’ papers.

MISPLACED, NOT LOST

A little time offline can do strange things to a person.

In the two weeks I’ve been away, I’ve reignited a passion that I had all but lost and all because my mum had found a bag of my sketchbooks while she was clearing out her cellar. It felt truly bizarre to be looking through those books, I remembered them vividly yet, at the same time, I felt so disconnected to who that person was. I had forgotten her.

Generally, people say that what you loved doing as a child should act as a guide to your future career or calling and those books reminded me of what I loved most of all in my youth – words. Page after page of those sketchbooks are filled with my very amateurish attempts at calligraphy (so many fonts, so little time!) and fragments of first paragraphs for the book I dreamt of writing. Now, with 47 years of hindsight, I can hear echoes of my love of letters and words throughout my life but, despite so many reminders, I have just let them go.

So, to begin, I’m feeding that need to add a flourish to everything I write and have signed up for an online calligraphy course. I start today!
