31 Days of Gratitude (2015) Day 3 & #LoveYourLettering Recap Week 1 - 31 Days of Gratitude 2015logo_31_days15_B_500The 31 Day of Writing Challenge continues. It’s Day 3 of my 31 Days of Gratitude 2015.

On the weekends I try to stay off the computer as much as I can so I can spend time with my family. I treasure the more leisurely days of the weekend (theoretically speaking) and am grateful for the time we have to be more playful and enjoy each others company.

Preparing-for-31days-of-Creative-Lettering-CreativLEI.com_With that in mind, I thought I could use Saturdays to give you a quick recap on my second October challenge – #LoveYourLettering with Lisa at πŸ™‚

Day 1 - #LoveYourLettering Challenge (lettering_day_1b)On the first day, we used washi tape to tape two sheets together so the ink wouldn’t bleed through. Then we added a title page.

The second page was affirmations. I have to especially remember that “it’s okay to make mistakes.” I may or may not have already ripped out 2 pages of my notebook because I messed up! Ahem.

Day 2 - #LoveYourLettering Challenge - (lettering_day_2A)Day 3 was practice writing in your natural hand. This was a little tough for me since my writing has changed over the years (except for my longhand, that has pretty much stayed the same.) I have a few different ways I like to write so it’s sometimes hard to know what is my natural hand. Maybe I’m just overthinking it.

Day 3 - #LoveYourLettering Challenge - (lettering_day_3A)Day 3, today, was practicing basic letter forms. I was getting flashbacks of my grammar school days. I purposely made myself sit up straight, placed my book at an angle and with my left hand holding it steady and practiced the strokes like a determined first grader. It was fun and I noticed better control over the pen and it’s movement. πŸ™‚

Well, that’s it for this week. Next Saturday I’ll recap again. Have a great Saturday!
