📣 Sound the Discount Code & Last Shipping Dates Klaxon! 📣 ...morning lovely ones! Hope you had a great weekend? Just wanted to drop in with a quick PSA re: Christmas deliveries from @leslieannemadeit ☺💌 #shopsmall

My next post day is TOMORROW (Tuesday 10th) - & it's probably your best chance of getting things before Christmas if you're outside of the UK. (I can't make any guarantees once your packages are out of my hands, I never do, but if you order before 9pm tonight I'll make sure you're in tomorrow's post bag & your package SHOULD beat Santa to your door! 😉💌) #thinkgoodthoughts

AND as an extra treat, you can still use my #smallbusinesssaturday code until 9pm tonight too - it's MERRYEVERYTHING for 20% off everything in stock ☺ #discountcode

After that, I'll keep posting twice a week as normal (tuesdays & fridays) until Friday 20th December - which will be my LAST post day of the year! ...If you're in the UK, even that one *should* get to you before Christmas, but I'd still recommend shopping sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment! #shopindependentthischristmas
and #shopSOON! #beprepared

Phew! Thanks for reading, have a super duper Monday! 😄💛 #happymonday #mondaymotivation

✍🏼 I’m no calligrapher - I’ve no training and always resisted the idea of following the rules! - but I love a bit of curly-wurly, which was just the thing for this line by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

About 12 years ago we made temporary tattoos of this line, when it was still quite difficult to get them made (they were made for us in the USA). The ink today is ✨Gold Star🌟, a beautiful coppery shimmer ink. I chose this quote to match the ink!
.
.
Each day there’ll be one of our (mine and Leigh’s) favourite quotes rendered in today’s ink.✍🏼
.
.

Done in ✍🏼one take,✍🏼 same size, paper and format, photographed not scanned, and in whatever lettering I fancy, these quotes are from our collection of things said by people we know, friends, colleagues, or people we admire, and which we use every day, like almost like mantras or a code of conduct whenever we find ourselves stuck, going down a rabbit hole or confused.
.
.

Expect short ones, long ones, swearing, funnies and stern ones! This is one of my stone cold favourites, and my Dad’s, and describes life pretty bloody well at times.
.
.
And then we examine that juicy ink as it dries, in as much of a close-up as we can get... 1️⃣🎄💙✍🏼💙🎄1️⃣ .

Love the verse that was chosen by a client for this custom cushion! .

Tried out @kassa htv bundle that has so many colours! I generally wouldn’t buy red vinyl so this came in handy when the client requested red! The htv is slightly thicker and firmer than others but I’m loving it so far!

Are you familiar with having a “full emotional balloon”? It’s when you let things build up inside like resentments and fears without letting them go or processing them out. Then they start “leaking out” on other people by way verbal insults or cold shoulder, etc. Playing with this for a pin or patch concept but not sure how universal this concept is.

Anchors and handles on display for the Poiema print that’s for sale. Initially, I thought id never be able to vector these letters. This is solid progress for me. FEELS GOOD.

✍🏼 OK let’s try that again: Day SIX of the Inkvent Calendar! ✍🏼

Each day there’ll be one of our (mine and Leigh’s) favourite quotes rendered in today’s ink. This one is a much-quoted line by @sagefrancissfr from our interview with him some years ago, when we made our film ‘Stupid Enough’ (stupidenough.org)
It came at the end of a particularly important line of wisdom...and it kind of meant, “well; tough. You made that choice. I made mine. Whachagonnadooooo? Deal with it!”🤷🏻‍♀️

By the way there’s no filter on these - they’re photographed in daylight or under a daylight bulb with no tweaking, so the ink’s shown as naturally as possible. As you can probably see here, smudges and all!

Printing out some style sets. These are NOT fonts. Each piece was custom lettered by hand, revised extensively and then vectorized in Adobe Illustrator for final output. I print these style sets to show range to clients and I save them in plastic protective sheets inside presentation binders. Does anyone else do the same thing? 😃

It’s that time of year again! Personalised thank you cards and gifts for all things teachers, clients, neighbours and staff!

What do you enjoy gifting this time of year? We will be doing homemade treats for teachers, wine for neighbours and cards for clients. 
I’ve ordered a few versions of these thank you cards in various colour ways to add to my soon to be shop.

I’m quite proud of this little piece of hand lettering I did and looking forward to seeing it out in the world.

LETTERING TIP: Here’s another trick I’ll elaborate on during my Spencerian Lettering workshop this weekend Dec. 7–8 @coopertype in NYC.
•
When an elliptical form joins a stem in a script style like this, the axis of the bowl (enclosed counterform) requires an angle that’s slightly greater than the general slope of the letterforms. This adjustment grounds the curved stroke by keeping more of its weight toward the bottom, preventing the oval shape from appearing to rotate backward away from the stem. It also allows the two components to meet above the center of the letterform (indicated by the arrow), which is characteristic of high-contrast formal script.
•
In the second image, the axis of the elliptical bowl matches the angle of the stem. This distributes the volume of the curved stroke more evenly throughout, ultimately causing the letter to appear upright, stiff, and boring. Another unwanted result is the joining of the two components at the center (indicated by the arrow), which ruins the subtle tension necessary to give a sense of liveliness to Spencerian Lettering forms, like the one I’ve drawn here.
•
For those paying close attention, you may have noticed that the right side of the bowl just kisses the left side of the vertical stem, creating distinct “ink traps.” This feature —along with the thin exaggerated hairline “entry stroke” at the very top of the right stem— is a hallmark of Spencerian Lettering, which was innovated by Tom Carnase with Herb Lubalin during the late 1960s.

✍🏼 Day 2 of the Inkvent Calendar! .

I’m trying all the inks out day by day (just like you’re meant to - though inky colleagues worldwide have just been tearing into their Inkvents for weeks!) Today: 🍭Candy Cane, a saturated, rich red. Just look how it breaks down! Those edges ♥️

Each day there’ll be one of our (mine and Leigh’s) favourite quotes rendered in today’s ink.

Shared this on my stories yesterday and there was genuine interest in this card design and my rum ball design (see both in slide 2). As I’m still setting up the logistics of my shop, if you would like to order either card design I’d love to know in the next day or two so I can organise the print.

Cards will be printed locally on 350gsm 100%recycled card stock with a white or kraft envelope supplied for each. 
Introductory price will be $8 per card inc postage in Australia. I’m not sure on international at this point so if you are keen, let me know and I’ll look into it!

Please DM me if you would be interested in ordering! Thanks for your support!!!

My second design for the silly season. This one is for those of you or people you know who may not be feeling the festive vibes rum balls and fairy lights bring. (See my previous post for that reference!) But you know what? That’s totally ok too!  I want people to know that they can be ok in the yucky times and still be loved.

Thinking this design could work on a tee shirt as well (with out the small text) for those that want a festive statement with a difference?! Let me know what you think? Yah or nah?✨💛

Here’s a miniature (of a MASSIVE) balloon I mocked up for a client. Yes, you can use the @officialcricut_anz for balloon lettering too! .
And because I know someone will ask, the font is Times New Roman, the “sixty” was handlettered by me of course (#notafont).

Printing out some style sets. These are NOT fonts. Each piece was custom lettered by hand, revised extensively and then vectorized in Adobe Illustrator for final output. I print these style sets to show range to clients and I save them in plastic protective sheets inside presentation binders. Does anyone else do the same thing? 😃

Oopsie! Camera slightly off center resulting in a cut off C 😬 but here’s what I decided to do with my alcohol ink experiment. I have always loved arts and crafts so when I see something cool, I am all about it. I spent the evening watching some YouTube videos about how to use them and I ordered even more colors 😅. I’m gonna try playing around with it more so I can understand what it can do.
.
But it got me thinking about people who are still hesitant to try their hand at being creative. Honestly it takes a little bit of courage because you’re basically putting yourself out there on a page. It’s scary but you might be so amazed by what your little two hands can make. It’s an incredible feeling to MAKE stuff, don’t you think?
