Hand Lettered Artwork Lately

Here is little project I was working on last week: hand lettered Valentine’s cards.

I usually use sappy sweet Victorian-style verses like: “Time stands still dear, when you are near”,  “You hold the key to my heart” and “Flowers are love’s truest affection”, but this year I decided to try something different and use Bible verses about love. The nice thing is, these don’t immediately scream “Valentine’s” so I will try a few others for everyday cards as well.

Ethereal Beauty

Winter is beautiful.

OK, maybe I don’t feel the love so much when it is -45 Celsius and I look like the michelin man because of all my winter layers. But let’s focus on the good.

On a day like this, where the light and the frost and the fog create such a beautiful and ethereal landscape- winter is good.
