Hello, dears!

If you’re on Pinterest or any other form of social media, you’ve probably seen the hand lettering trend going around. And I think it’s great! Hand lettering is a beautiful and useful skill. Unfortunately, it seems like I see the same type of post (“how to make faux calligraphy for beginners”) EVERYWHERE, and not much information beyond that.

So today I’m going to give you all some ideas and inspiration for how to take your hand lettering to the next level! I’ll be showing you some quick tips for how to format quotes, add flourishes and other fun extras, and more. If you need a refresher on basic hand lettering, check out my first post on that subject here.

Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s begin!

Bible Journal Tours

Hello, dears!

I started reading through the Bible for the second time a couple of years ago and decided I’d write down my favorite verse from each chapter as I went. I try to read a chapter + journal every night, so thus far I’ve made it to Psalms and filled up nearly six journals! Sometimes I write the verses in beautiful hand lettering and other times… well, I just write them. XD

I’ve really enjoyed this method so far! It helps you slow down and think about the verse or verses, plus it’s fun to look back on the notebooks you’ve filled. Speaking of that, I thought I’d show you guys some of my favorites today. 🙂 Hopefully you enjoy the tour and maybe gain a little inspiration for your own journaling!

Bullet Journal Setup 2019

Hello, dears!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Now that it’s officially 2019, I decided it’s time to try a new layout for my bullet journal. 😉 This time, I went with something super simple but still pretty – namely, washi tape! 😀 I got a bunch of GORGEOUS tapes for Christmas (more on that in a later post), and I had so much fun using them throughout this spread!

I kept the first part of my bujo simple so I had more time to work on… some exciting Etsy news pertaining to bullet journals. 😉 More on that at the end of the post. Keep reading if you like bujos or planners! 😉

Farewell, 2018 {Yearly Wrap-Up}

Hello, dears!

How was your Christmas? Mine was a little different than normal, but still wonderful. 🙂 We had 5 celebrations with different parts of the family, caroled at a nursing home, had a beautiful Christmas Eve service, were blessed with many fun gifts, and ate WAY too much good food. XD

Now, the post. Whew, where do I start? 2018 has probably been the most exciting, scary, stressful, wonderful, and all-around life-changing year for me yet. O.o I don’t think I can do it justice in one post, but I’ll try.
