Phew! I finally did the darn thing and started my very first BLOG!
I don’t consider myself a writer. At all. In fact, I’m usually the girl in the group who has the least to say. So, why do I feel the need to put words out into cyber-space and assume people will read it?
Because I’m a self-taught calligrapher and watercolor artist. That means that when I was first starting to learn, I spent hours scouring the internet for blogs! I would read anything and everything that taught me more about this creative entrepreneurial world. From older, wiser, traditional copperplate calligraphers; to young and hip modern artists. They were so helpful and formative for me, so I hope I can be that for someone else!
My prayer for this blog is that it turns years into hours for you, and that you can pick up some helpful tools that took me years of trial & error. I’ll share with you everything I’ve learned along the way, and a lot of nuggets of wisdom I WISH I had known years ago. Articles, videos, tutorials… you name it! Nothing fancy. Probably a lot of iPhone videos and simple formatting. But the content? It’ll be gold.
I also hope it is a place you can come and feel like you’re not alone. Like someone else (me!) has been there, made that mistake, struggled with that issue, shared in that joy, laughed at that same “dad joke” that no one else thought was funny… whether it’s business-related or just life in general. I gotchu, girl!
