New year ~ new beginnings ~ new challenges

During 2015 I didn’t exactly have a year off making things. I rediscovered my love of drawing, painting, typography and a new craft – papercutting.

More on papercutting in the next few weeks, but for now I’d like to share my challenge for 2016.

I am taking up the hand lettered abc challenge – they are an Instagram account @handletteredabcs and for the month of January it’s a letter a day starting today. 

I have created my own Instagram account for this blog so I can share how I get on with this particular challenge and also bits and bobs that may not be blog worthy but may be of interest to you – so please do feel free to have a look.

I’ve bought myself a new notebook and hope to ‘letter’ something in it everyday this year, starting with January and the alphabet challenge. It goes against my control freak perfectionist nature as there are no ‘do-overs’ once it’s in the book!!

Will be back with progress reports – but will post daily on Instagram.
