I was talking to my cousin recently about how changing your perspective in dark times + INTENTLY looking for God during hard times/situations/seasons can really change you. Instead of thinking about how stressed + overwhelmed I may feel, I can see that I have work to be done because I’ve been blessed with the role of a mom, I have the opportunity to go to college, and I have clients + orders to fill. Being grateful for even the darkest of times is no easy feat, but He tells us that when we remain in Him & He in us, we will bear the fruit. I have an abundance of fruit, y’all. I •C A N N O T• wait to announce some of the most exciting news of my creative career. Be sure to tune in this upcoming Thursday (between thanksgiving meals or to avoid awkward family convos) to see what’s happening! 🖤👰🏽🤵🏻🍾

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a #fauxmuralfriday , so here we go! The lettering is actually repurposed from some hand written brush script I made a while back, but it sure looks great on a wall! Swipe to see the original lettering. Photo Credit: @anniespratt on @unsplash

GUYS!!!! BIG EXCITING NEWS!!!! As some of you may know, I started this calligraphy journey just only 6 MONTHS ago, literally half a year, and the amount of support I have gotten from friends, family, fellow calligraphers and my followers here are beyond imaginable.
A few days ago, I was offered by @madalinacoman, an AMAZING author, poet, writer, and a FRIEND to do a collaboration on her next upcoming book "Bloom Into Yourself". I am still in disbelief for an opportunity like this to be presented to me. I am beyond grateful, thankful, and overwhelmed. To think that at the beginning of this year, i dont even know how to do calligraphy, and to know that my calligraphy will end up in a book is just mind boggling to me. "That goes to show you there really is no limit to human potential, Only the limits we set for ourselves in our minds" are her words to me when i express how im still in disbelief, and its truly inspiring.
Madalina, THANK YOU SO MUCH for believing in my talent. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel. You are truly a humble and kind person. I am excited to be doing this collaboration with you. Thank you for always appreciating and showcasing my work. I am happy to have met you.
Guys, lets support Ms. Madalina Coman! Her two books "Unforgettable" & "Words Unspoken" are available for you to order on Amazon!! and soon "Bloom Into Yourself" which I am happy to be apart of will be out March of 2019!
I own both of her books and its very POWERFUL. A rollercoaster of emotions.
