Ever get a brilliant idea and never execute it? Or better yet, ever have Pinterest board after Pinterest board full of amazing things you want to try but never find the time?
That was me — to be honest, it is still me sometimes! There are never enough hours in a day to get everything you need to do. Maybe it’s chasing after kids, maybe it’s the never-ending pile of paperwork.
Don’t you wish you could just stop? Get away from the madness, go back to the days before The Real World sucked up all your time, and simply create?
It is possible.
No, I’m not going to say you should quit your day job and give your 200% into painting, or embroidery, or ikebana. Frankly, that is a luxury not many can afford. Also, there are some day jobs that can’t be quit — like Mom.
But it is possible to carve out a little time every day, a dedicated little bubble, and put your hands to work.
Sounds awesome, right? You betcha!
I should know, I’m doing it! But no, I’m not sitting on my bum all day doing nothing but creating — though I did sit on my bum for quite a number of days to get this site set up!
Who am I?
I’m Lyssy. I’m a plannerd of the highest order and I adore creating things. Unfortunately, I’m also Asian, hailing from the perpetually hot and humid Singapore, where grades are everything so I sold my soul to studying fairly young.
But I wasn’t happy. In my 16th and final year of the esteemed education system here, I felt drained. I was about ready to go bonkers from all the work. Then I started planning what I’d make for that year’s Christmas gifts and it was like I flipped a switch.
I’m never happier than when I’m planning to create — except when I’m actually making something.
Today, I squeeze out the time daily — or at least every other day — to do some little form of creating. And that’s what I hope to share with you here with lettering.
Every Wednesday I share a little something with you. Sometimes it’s about learning lettering, other times, it’s about a lettering project I just tried out.
I hope you enjoy the ride!
