Crayola Lettering was a hit today at Greenwood College's Art Day! I'm glad I could show so many students and teachers how to do calligraphy and make some cool shadow effects 💙 Should I book some public "Crayligraphy" Workshops?
This weekend Tetley is having a "Tea Break" experience where you can literally smash stereotypes. You know rage rooms? It's like that but you get to shatter my hard work lol (see my last post)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
People keep asking if I'm sad that all my work is getting destroyed. NAH. Don't worry, I'm a minimalist and I try not to hold value in material things. In fact, I'm going to the event to smash one myself right now. If anything it'll be therapeutic AF. It's kinda like ritual destruction of sand mandalas; nothing's permanent. SO BYE.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Which word would you break into a million pieces? Delicate, sensitive, weak, timid, cute, fragile or dainty? #notyouraveragecupoftea @tetleycanada
Some more things have been added to the rental catalogue including a couple of these reserved signs 🌿 check the link in my bio to see what else we have ⬆️
After a busy summer and even busier fall my husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary in Tofino, British Columbia. Tofino may be one of the most enchanting and beautiful places on earth. Our trip reminded me of how grateful I am to be able to live and explore this beautiful vast country and share in its beauty with the one I love. ❤️ 🌍

word of the day: luminescence💡since i’ve seen lots of pencil calligraphy videos on my explore page, i decided to try it out myself :)
Have you ever tried Crayola Lettering, or #crayligraphy
? They are one of my favourite tools for lettering, and definitely the cheapest & most accessible! I'll be teaching this and more at the Christmas Cards Workshops next month, and they'll be up on my website to download and print too!🖍💜
Crayola Lettering Workbook in the works!
Calligraphy on place cards. Mulberry paper.
My first destination seating chart, so much fun!
I’d like to give a shout out to Kelly at @southpaw_lettering
in Hamilton. I’ve yet to meet her but she was a big help to me. It’s easy to glean from our communications that she is a kind, considerate, and generous person. She’s a talented lettering artist too! Thank you, Kelly 😘
My parents are from India, so it's a pretty engrained part of our culture to enjoy tea time everyday. First thing in the morning and mid afternoon with snacks (samosas!), we have a Tetley orange pekoe with a splash of milk. The amount of this tea we have gone through is immeasurable. Seriously, it's such a daily must-have that my parents take a ziploc full of Tetley teabags with them on their travels because other brands are like, just not acceptable. So I'm pretty sure this is going to be their favourite brand commission I've ever done.
Writing these words 1000 times was about 20 hours of labour but I'm about to see it all come together this weekend. #notyouraveragecupoftea
YEEHAW 🤠. I somehow inserted myself into the lives of these two calligraphers who I admire the most... and convinced them to work with me. This weekend we did calligraphy on bandanas at @boobyball
sponsored by @sonnetinsurance.
Doing art live brings a whole different side to lettering. Usually it’s quiet, contemplative and focused... When it’s at a massive club venue, there’s booming music, drunk people bumping the tables and a lot of yelling to communicate, it’s definitely not for everyone. But these extroverted boss ladies took it in stride and we wrote on every single bandana in the house! Cheers to lots of fun and a great cause! 🎀
Thanks so much to everyone for coming out tonight! Hope you all love practicing your new brush lettering skills 🖌
