Hi, it’s nice to meet you!
I’m a 30 something, chocolate-loving, planner addicted, hand letterer of all the things. When I’m not staring at my computer screen, doodling on whatever scrap of paper that’s lying around, or buying new planner supplies, I love spending time outdoors and camping with my husband and chocolate lab.
When I was a kid, I loved to doodle, color, and paint. I would spend my free time deep in a coloring book, painting at the kitchen table, or set up at my desk drawing away. In college, I took several art classes to help fulfill my Interior Design degree and discovered an underlying passion and appreciation for art. While I never pursued it as a career, I did pursue painting and drawing as a hobby for a bit. Then life took over and I put that hobby aside, as I never thought it was something I was good at, just something I enjoyed doing.
In 2016 I started to teach myself brush lettering as a creative outlet. It quickly turned into a passion and obsession. Learning everything I could about calligraphy, brush lettering, typography, and iPad lettering has evolved into this blog and business, where I share what I’ve learned.
When I’m not working at my day job as a Veterinary Inventory Manager, or at my DIY/Food Blog Domestically Creative, you’ll find me with a pen (or Apple Pencil) in hand, creating something new! I hope to inspire you to unleash your creativity too!

When I’m not working or spending quality time camping with my husband and dog, you’ll find me hanging out on Instagram. Make sure to connect with me there!
