Hello my lettering friends!
I’m so sorry that our schedule is being rearranged a tad. We should have moved to Italic Calligraphy today, but I am finishing my (last minute prep) for the 2to1 Conference.
I know that the calligraphy pen can be a little tricky, and I didn’t want to rush through these assignments. We will pick back up shortly!
I will continue to Periscope a few times daily during the conference… Including having some of my right-handed friends join me!
In the meantime, I have a task for you.
Tomorrow, October 15th, is the International Wave of Light for pregnancy and infant loss awareness.
Some of you who’ve recently joined me for the lettering series may not know that in 2011 I lost my daughter when she was 28 days old.
Each year since I’ve joined the wave of light at 7PM, even the year we were in Disney.
It’s a beautiful reminder of these little souls, lost far too soon.
Tomorrow when I light my candle, I will be writing the names of my daughter and the names of many of my friends’ lost babies.
I would love the honor of writing the name(s) of the child(ren) whom you’ve lost.
I find that one of the hard parts of having a daughter in Heaven, is not hearing and seeing her name as often as I do my living children.
Please add your child’s first name to the comments, or by emailing me. If you lost your baby before you had the chance to name him/her, please let me know and I will draw a heart in honor of that life.
If you know of someone who would be blessed by seeing the name of their lost child written out, please forward this post to them.
Here is the video of the names I wrote to remember during the Wave of Light.
Thanks so much for understanding, and for helping me with this project.
