WOW! Concussions are no joke!
A week and a half ago, I wasn’t paying attention when I was walking in an unfamiliar place, and totally walked into a doorway and smacked the top of my head. Hard.
What I thought was just a bad hit and a big bump, ended up being a concussion. Having had experience with my son having a concussion, I felt like mine wasn’t too bad and followed the doctor’s orders which consisted of; lots of rest, no screens, no reading … to quote her “live a boring life”.
From dizziness, to nausea, to just wanting to sleep all day and stare out the window, to complete boredom and finally to Marie Kondo-ing ever single dresser drawer I could get my hands on, I’m happy to now share that I feel better in spurts and feel like I’m on the other side of this head injury.
Seriously though, if you bump your head, even a little bit, make sure to get it checked out. I’ve heard some horror stories over these last few days. Technology in moderation now that I’m feeling better. I just couldn’t wait any longer to share this easy and beautiful printable that I created!
I created this really easy and fun tracing sheet last month and share it in the Creative Library for my subscribers to use and enjoy practicing lettering Happy Birthday!
At one of my last workshops, it was requested by some of the attendees that I demonstrate how to write “Happy Birthday” in my modern calligraphy style, so that they had it to practice tracing at home while they continued their learning.
It made me think, what a great idea to share it with anyone who is looking for more practice, and to be able to trace to grow their calligraphy writing confidence and skill!
Tracing is one of the best ways to help you build muscle memory and grow your lettering practice! So I thought I’d make it available for anyone who is looking for a fun and easy way to help with learning how to write “Happy Birthday” in modern calligraphy with these tracing sheets!
The best part is, I’ve designed this practice sheet to be used with both a pointed pen and ink, or a small brush pen! I’m all about convenience and multi-purpose tools!
So here’s what you should do;
First off, join the Creative Library so you get access to all the tools and resources that I create for my subscribers,
Next, download the practice sheet here.
Then, set aside 10 minutes a day for practice,
How? Trace a few lines worth, then write a few on your own,
The only thing left to do is to impress your friends and family with how beautifully you write in modern calligraphy style lettering!!
I hope you enjoy this printable that I created. I’m happiest when using my pen and ink, creating fun and flowy calligraphy lettering, but am as equally excited to be able to share my passion!
Now, time to turn off technology and back to staring at the walls for a bit.
