I love the work of Lisa Congdon and I am so inspired by her 365 days of Hand lettering Project. I think one of the reasons I am drawn to this is because I have always been interested in hand lettering. When I was in school my teachers and professors would often comment on my interesting looking notes. To me, my notes were basically just drawings and words made beautiful by the way I put them on the pages of my spiral notebook. I used different styles of lettering and boxed things, shaded others…if anyone missed a class –they came to me for my notes. It kept me focused and engaged and note taking was just something I did well. And now it is a form of art for artists like Lisa….how could I not love that?
I’m sending my girl friends a little card and a packet of one of my favorite teas from Dean & DeLuca. Happy Spring! It’s snowing outside my window right now!
