“v for violet (*no time lapse)
i can't tell you how many times i had to write this, or how many other words i tried. it just wouldn't work out for me today until this very last attempt 😥for the #realtimeletteringchallenge by @realtimelettering”
I’m a little off this week! final full spread using this adorable valentines day kit from @sensiblycuteplanning ! •
final collab questions with @sensiblycuteplanning and @copelandplans! 1. favorite candy: lindt chocolate! 2. best date: every year we go to a pottery painting place and chris makes me a mug that i drink my coffee out of. it also looks like a mug a child has painted but i love them!

Well, i’ve seriously been lacking on my own challenge with @sibby.letters. thankful she’s been holding down the fort while i’ve just been neglecting instagram. thanks for everyone who sent messages of concern & checked in on me- i’m doing well. the job is going well, i’m enjoying the changes that life is presenting. but with changes, come adjustments in schedules and different things begin to take priority. i love lettering. i love using it to help open the dialogue for mental health. but sometimes... sometimes, it adds to my anxiety. sometimes it creates pressure and that joy & therapy i once found in it has disappeared. so, i turned off my instagram notifications (holy woah- what a life changer) and i let myself breathe. i avoided my studio and focused on resting, meal planning, trying new recipes, working out, and relaxing after being the new girl at work (you know, all smiles & energy & desperately trying to remember interesting facts about yourself so people will sit with you at lunch)... so, you could say, this self is changing and this self is living.
