My story: Why I learned hand lettering

Update: I got even more personal in this recent post you can find here.IMG_3972

In March 2016, I was having a rough time as a first year teacher. I kept saying to myself, “Someday you’ll back and say, ‘Wow, I did that.'” This helped to motivate me. I really wanted to hang up a cute print of it. I couldn’t find anything close to this saying so I knew I had to make it myself. Soon after this, I discovered the RhonnaDesigns appΒ where I was able to create my own quotes! I was so excited! I couldn’t get enough.

Then I realized there were certain things I couldn’t do and I needed to learn calligraphy. My husband and I took a trip to Michaels where we bought my first calligraphy pens. They were just basic felt calligraphy pens, Elegant Writers, and I loved them. I wrote and wrote and wrote.

Here are some of my very first pieces. I used the RhonnaDesigns app to decorate them.

Ever since then, I have been hooked. I continue to enjoy trying out many different lettering tools and styles. I am excited to see where my lettering journey will take me.
