Have you been noticing all of these amazing hand lettering projects that have been popping up all over the internet over the last year or two? I’ve always been really impressed by the people that can hand letter so perfectly but I’ve also always been a little intimidated to try it out myself. Well, after my successful attempt at learning chalk lettering this spring, I was feeling a little more brave. My friend Jocie is probable one of the most talented hand letterers I’ve seen and I’ve always been just a tiny bit in awe of her skill, so when she launched her new hand lettering course called The Busy Girl’s Guide to Hand Lettering, I knew that’s who I wanted to learn from!
I actually had my daughter Kennedy (who’s 12) go through the course first just because it seemed like exactly her kind of thing and she honestly couldn’t stop hand lettering for weeks after that!
We went through several notebooks but it was a great little skill to play around with for her over the summer break, so definitely worth all those extra trips to Michael’s! 🙂
Once I got in there and took the course myself, I realized what all the obsessing and excitement was about. The course is broken up into small reading sections and short, inspiring videos with product recommendations and practice sheets that make it really easy to get started… and once you get started you basically can’t stop hand lettering all the things!… or practicing and trying to get better at hand lettering all the things in my case. 🙂
Jocie shows you how to do hand lettering for mugs, t-shirts, bags, gifts, pillows, signs, and just about anything else you can think of! I also really like how she shows you how to stage your works of art so you can show them off in social media. Such a nice touch for this Instagram age we’re living in!
Jocie set the bar pretty high for hand lettering perfection, so I’m not quiiiite to a point where I’m really ready to show off my skills. Jocie stepped in though and made this really cute free hand lettered printable for me to share with all of you in celebration of her new course launching. I thought this quote seemed pretty much perfect for my readers. 🙂
Just click here to download this free hand lettered quote art and print it off to use it in your home!
There’s also a simple black and white version, which you can find here.
If you’re curious about hand lettering, definitely check out Jocie’s new course The Busy Girl’s Guide to Hand Lettering! Hand Lettering is such a useful skill to have for so many things, and it’s a craft that you can get started on right away without spending thousands on supplies, which is pretty awesome.
