Only 10 more to go ๐Ÿ™ˆ! Feels like Iโ€™ve written the words โ€œhappy holidaysโ€ at least 100 times in the past hour ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜…. Working on this custom order of gift tags hasnโ€™t been all bad though because at least I get to practice lettering with a brush which I rarely do. What lettering tools do you struggle with?

Tired of the same old holiday ornaments each year? Switch things up this season with hand lettered ornaments by yours truly ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ˜œ
.
Currently have these listed in my Etsy shop in plastic but Iโ€™ll soon have these available in clear and gold glass!
Never would have thought Iโ€™d be into the holiday season this early but making these ornaments has been so much fun and better to get a head start ๐Ÿ˜‰. .
Anyone start their Xmas shopping yet? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

Been a bit MIA here but thatโ€™s cuz I was having too much fun this weekend in LA ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ’. This was pretty much the only thing I was able to letter and finally got to really play around with different techniques on my iPad Proโœจ. One thing that totally caught us off guard was seeing people wear winter jackets and sweaters ๐Ÿ˜ณ. But then again it made sense in the evening and I was sorta kicking myself for only packing summer clothing ๐Ÿ™ˆ. Anyone else from a cooler climate make that mistake visiting LA? .

So cool to see where and how where my wall decals are used by my customers. Thanks for taking this snap of your wall @terenahymamakeup โ˜บ๏ธ. Gold wall dots by me and lettering by another seller on Etsy. Getting some ideas from the lettered piece so stay tuned because I might just add those too ๐Ÿ˜‰. .

Oh haiii๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever actually introduced myself here, probably because I always miss #fridayintroductions and share all my personal stuff on my regular account @chnar . Anyways... Iโ€™m gonna do a #saturdayintroductions just because ๐Ÿ˜œ.
.
Here are some fun facts about me:
1. My name is Char short for Charlynn...no one ever pronounces my name right. Sounds like sh for shark ๐Ÿฆˆ, not ch like cheese ๐Ÿง€. .
2. Iโ€™m a health and fitness fanatic! I will lift all the weights and do all the plyo training but Iโ€™ll also eat all the pizza #thestruggleisreal ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ .
3. I almost always have some kind of bright coloured hair ๐Ÿฆ„(I used to be a hair dresser at one point so go figure ๐Ÿ’‡๐Ÿปโœจ).
.
4. Started hand lettering over a year ago because I was too cheap to buy pretty looking script fonts and figured I could learn this whole lettering/calligraphy thing...many brush markers, pens, paints, vinyl etc later....I think you know the rest ๐Ÿ˜‚.
.
Tell me how you got started with lettering ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

What do you believe in? ๐Ÿค”โœจ
.
Some scribbles at work this evening...still getting used to using liquid chalk markers and incorporating colour. Sadly thereโ€™s remnants of the last piece I did on this board even though I tried cleaning it off for a good 30 mins ๐Ÿ™ˆ. I even seasoned the board before writing on it but I guess the metallic liquid markers I used just donโ€™t wanna budge.
Any liquid chalk letterers out there experience this and have tips on how to prevent this from happening?

Halloween oh Halloween...I canโ€™t believe itโ€™s over โ˜น๏ธ๐ŸŽƒ. This is the first year I didnโ€™t make any Halloween crafts or decorations except for this little pumpkin. Iโ€™ve already started making Christmas/Winter holiday gifts which is also not like me getting ahead of the game, so expect to see more of that popping up on my IG feed ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ. Whoโ€™s excited for the holiday season?๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

Somehow I donโ€™t think witch hazel actually has anything to do with witches ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ”ฎ.

A couple weeks ago I customized this case with a hand lettered โ€œMโ€ for the lovely @megdaniellee โœจ. Love how the glitter moves around in these cases then reveals lettering behind it #basicallymagic ๐Ÿฆ„

Want a case customized just like this? Check out all the glittery goodness in my Etsy shop (link in my profile๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ) ๐Ÿฆ„โœจ

Seriously, HOW?! ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Iโ€™ve had these nibs for awhile now and each time I attempt to use them, it always ends in disappointment aka ripped paper, ink not flowing properly etc, etc. ๐Ÿ™ˆ
This surprisingly this doesnโ€™t look too bad but I just donโ€™t get them ๐Ÿ˜ซ. And trust me Iโ€™ve read/watched tutorials on how to hold these pens...but I probably just need to practice more I guess ๐Ÿ™ƒ. Any calligraphy pros have any tips? .

Persimmon...probably one of the few fruit that I donโ€™t totally love. Theyโ€™re ok sometimes, I guess but maybe I just havenโ€™t had one that was ripe enough..?
