Crayola Lettering was a hit today at Greenwood College's Art Day! I'm glad I could show so many students and teachers how to do calligraphy and make some cool shadow effects 💙 Should I book some public "Crayligraphy" Workshops?
I am Mother. I am Wife. I am Friend. I am...⠀
There is power in who we say we are. ⠀
For a very long time I thought I needed to earn the name Artist. Like it was something outside of myself to be grasped. ⠀
I am just as much Artist as I am Daughter. I am just as much Artist as I am Sister. I am just as much artist as I am Amanda. ⠀
Who do you say you are? What are the names that you feel in your bones but are too afraid to claim? ⠀
It isn’t outside of you. It isn’t going to be found with more work. It’s already there, waiting for you to call it by Your Name. ⠀
After receiving my degree in education I thought I had my life completely planned out. I was engaged, educated with a well paying job waiting for me. But slowly the plans I had so carefully put together began to unravel right before my eyes. My once perfectly planned out life had turned into a mix matched montage of various hobbies, jobs, and side hustles. I was doing everything to help out family with so much uncertainty of what my actual purpose was suppose to be.
Who knew that 3 years later I am right where I was suppose to be. Beautiful letters have taken on a whole new meaning for me and I’ve discovered that written words can carry such impact. I appreciate all the struggles and uncertainty because they have brought me to this place. There are still so many questions that lie ahead but I am choosing to focus on today, right here and right now to take me where I’m suppose to be. .
