Because School Started

27 08 2017

I am now super duper busy ferrying children all over the place.

The three driving kids share a car and we have to plan out the week ahead of time and post the calendar next to the car key. It looks like a map for lost treasure with all the arrows and notes on it.

Then there’s the three school kids. They’re mostly easy to take care of.

Then there’s the one at home…he needs some ferrying around sometime, too.

And the point of all those words is – I DON’T GET TO SIT AT MY DESK ANYMORE, well, until later at night. And not being able to create is driving me a little nutty.

So now, I’m looking at hand lettering. It’s something I can do while the baby plays during the day when its just him and me at home. I can also work on it while I’m in the car rider line waiting for my guy to get out of school. I decided to buy the hard bound, spiral book I found and I’m so glad! Now I don’t have to drag a lap desk around with me 🙂

This is what I’ve been working on 🙂 She has you trace the letters then try them on your own. A few more drills similar to this, and then on to joining the letters to make words 🙂

(Shhh. I cheated and already read that part. But practicing is good)


Thanks for stopping by

I know it can be frustrating to not get your creative time in when need it then when it seems there is a moment you are not sure what to do! 🙂 Love the lettering!

I know! Kids take up more time when school’s IN SESSION than they do when they’re out 😉 Hopefully when I have a better grasp on the lettering, I can still do things with it when I’m sitting on the couch.
