Lettering Lately

First, thank you for reading! Over 20,000 times someone has clicked to a page on my blog! I’m not really a numbers person, but when I realized that this week, it was a bit shocking to me! I love hearing from readers and really appreciate those of you who read, comment(!!) and share my blog! Click to older posts at the end of this one for a few random Life Lately updates.

Here’s a few updates of what I’ve been lettering lately. Also, I updated my blog a bit and at any time you can click to the menu bar and see information on Lettered Art (Click Here) including all previous posts.

One person’s trash{can} is another person’s treasure. This Mama is an up-cycler and she is going to put this can (found at Canton Trade Days) in her living room with a fabric liner and fill it with extra blankets and pillows.  The verse was perfect for the purpose “Come to me all who are weary and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28.

Back to school is in full swing and these chalkboards were for a Mama sending 3 littles to school. It was fun to see their first day pictures with their completed signs. Charlie wants to be a Lifeguard! I love responses from children to life’s big questions. Sometimes there’s such a sweet reminder in their simplicity and boldness!

This sign is for a teacher at my school, she’s hanging it in her classroom. It is 16×20 canvas, hard to tell but a mint green with charcoal and coral writing. Again, the iPhone isn’t professional grade color photography and my “studio” dining room isn’t professional grade lighting. 🙂

A friend contacted me for a wedding gift for an initial shower. How fun is that!?  I love monograms and initials and I think celebrating all things new initial is such a fun way to honor a bride!

Last, this is another canvas going in a classroom for a health teacher. Such a great quote, and lesson for High School students. All of us need to be reminded importance of character.  16×20 with coral, turquoise and white.

A couple more projects are in the works and I’m always taking orders. Remember for ideas and previous posts click to Lettered Art on the home page

    Hi Angie! Hope you're enjoying the last month of summer – still hot in Texas? California is having 70s to 90s range, depending where you are. I'm a wimp past 75 degrees.

    Your lettering work is very beautiful – very "professional grade". I LOVE the idea of upcycling the trash can for pillows and blankets – and the Bible verse is a wonderful reminder of His Love for us (and the contents).

    Have a great day! Woof to your handsome dog! He has the right idea – play, eat, sleep, repeat.

    Hi Laurie! Summer is officially over and one week with students is in the books! It is still hot, but we are finally enjoying a little less humidity…good for the hair, the workouts and seems it is cooler. Thank you for sweet comments about lettering, am loving creating words that matter for spaces! 🙂 Hope your week is great! B says hi too! 😉
