Back home with the sign I painted at Larry’s workshop a couple of weeks ago. Thank you for your great tips and support, Larry! @signvision_melbourne Thanks to my painting pal of the weekend @iammariamontes for prompting me to learn together. It’s been so much fun. 😍 For anyone who wants to give sign writing a go, I highly recommended Larry’s classes @signvision_melbourne ♥️ You will learn lots!

This Advent I’ve been thinking about these Advent words a lot. ✨
HOPE - Jesus is our hope. Jesus is why we have hope. We have hope in the promised Savior.
LOVE - God is love. I pray that we love the way God truly loved us. Let’s love the ones who are hard to love.
JOY - My joy is not in anything or anyone but in Christ Jesus. My joy is not fragile because my joy is Christ.
PEACE - He is the prince of peace. He’s peace surpasses understanding. Peace is not the absence of something filled but resting Christ.
Turn to Christ he is our hope, our love, our joy and our peace. Advent is an adventure in knowing Christ.

Working on letter M, of my typographic letterform exploration. I like to plan out my designs with small thumbnails to help figure out composition.
M is for Magnolia
Now that 2019 is wrapping up, I am able to reflect on my creative journey a bit. I have been working on these letters all year, which is crazy to me. I really feel like it’s a visual journey on how my style has progressed. I hope to keep refining it as I continue into 2020 ✨

I had to cut few seconds of the video to make it fit under a minute. It really goes to show how slow I write when brush lettering.

I remember listening to this song in my childhood from an old cassette on the tape recorder (does anyone remember those? I used to enjoy winding the cassette with a pencil if the reel got loose😁) . .
It was from a set of Christmas carols for kids, so this song was called "Good Christian Kids Rejoice", a variant of the song ""In dulci jubilo" (Latin for "In sweet rejoicing"), which is a traditional Christmas carol. In its original setting, the carol is a macaronic text of German and Latin dating from the Middle Ages. Subsequent translations into English, such as J. M. Neale's arrangement "Good Christian Men, Rejoice" have increased its popularity, and Robert Pearsall's 1837 macaronic translation is a mainstay of the Christmas Nine Lessons and Carols repertoire."
(Content in quotes is from Wikipedia)
I'm also sharing lyrics of the 2nd and 3rd stanzas:
"Good Christian kids, rejoice,
With heart and soul, and voice;
Now ye hear of endless bliss:
Jesus Christ was born for this!
He hath opened the heavenly door,
And man is blessed evermore.
Christ was born for this!
#10x19 9. ELO - From Out of Nowhere
Favorite song: “From Out of Nowhere”
How the heck is Jeff Lynne still spinning music gold after 50 years? Most bands are lucky to have a few hits, but Jeff Lynne has written some of the greatest songs of the last 5 decades and he still manages to release an album with catchy songs you've memorized the hook to before they're even over. Jeff Lynne, you are an English treasure.
I used this cover as an excuse to try a bunch of different lettering styles.

Amazing lettering by @lovableletters 👩🏻🎨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Posted @withrepost • Happy December! I‘ve been spending time with family and doing some traveling over the past few weeks, so I haven’t had much time to check Instagram. I’m happy to be back, and I have a question for you!
What is your favorite lettering challenge this month? I didn’t get a chance to search through them at the beginning of the month, so I would love some suggestions!
🎄🎶The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear🎶🎄
Elf just never gets old, no matter how many times I watch it🎄
A few weeks ago we went to our city’s Christmas tree lighting. There was hot chocolate, singing, and of course the tree lighting🎄
My son wasn’t singing and I busted out a quote from this movie and told him that he needed to sing in order for Santa’s sleigh to fly😂
What are YOUR favorite family Christmas traditions?
