New Projects

August 20, 2012

One of my goals for this year was to do a 30 day project.  I didn’t really have anything particular in mind, but last weekend I hit upon my idea.  And then randomly started it in the middle of a month.  I recently read this post and this post and decided I would like to practice my handwriting.  When I was a little girl it was terrible.  And one summer I practiced for an hour and a half everyday to go from chicken scratch (inherited from my father, haha!) to legible.  My mother has beautiful handwriting.  And one day I’d love for my handwriting to be beautiful too.  So I need to practice.

This was a bit of advice I sent to a friend in an email last week, and it has just stuck with me.  It’s some advice I should give myself a lot more often.  I just bought a new notebook, and I don’t know exactly what each page is going to look like yet, but I hope that by the end of September it doesn’t take me nearly so long to write 14 words. HA! Like most people, if I take my time, my handwriting is much nicer…. and what I really want to improve is my regular old everyday handwriting.  The faster I go the sloppier it gets.  And it bugs me.  I was one of those people who rewrote their notes all through college, just so they looked pretty.  I’m not going to post writing pictures everyday, probably a weekly roundup for the next little while or something.  If you want to join me feel free.  There aren’t really any rules, just practice writing something each day, try out new fonts, improve your signature, dot the i’s with hearts.  Whatever.

    No way…don’t tell me that’s your handwriting on the cover of your journal!! Looks like a pro!

      Haha, yes, that is my handwriting, and thank you. Don’t be fooled, those 14 words took me about an hour to write! It doesn’t come easy to me, that’s why I need some more practice!

        Well, I have to admit, I had always thought I had pretty good handwriting but I couldn’t come close to writing like you in 1 hour or 24 hours! It is actually “art!”

    A) That advice is for me, so thank you
    B) I have always envied HRH’s handwriting, and Sara’s, they are just so lovely
    C) I agree that Mom has lovely handwriting, it’s just so consistent.

    My mom also has gorgeous handwriting that looks like it was created with typeset cursive letters. I love your Pinksuede specialty font and hope you issue it some day (I’m pretty sure I’ve said that a zillion times already).

    Wow! I thought that was just a cute cover on your notebook, I wish I could write like that! I used to handwrite really nice, I should practice some in my one a day journal, thanks for the idea!
