I'm Ready

If we wait until we are ready, we will be waiting for the rest of our lives.

First of all, thank you for clicking! I know even I am guilty of seeing something on social media, reading the first three words and keep scrolling along my merry way.

I have been contemplating starting a blog for a little while now and I figured, why wait? I want to share what I am doing and I couldn’t think of a better way to do that than starting a blog.

Many students who went to SCAD said it stood for ‘Sleep Comes After Death’ - and although I made it through without pulling a single all-nighter, I did work my butt off. Once I graduated, weekends would come around and I would just nervously sit on my couch thinking, “What am I forgetting to do? I should be doing something right now. How am I not busy?!”

I love, love, love hand-lettering. I think it takes something processed and turns it into something personal. Having something hand written on paper is so special in a world where everything is emailed and posted on Facebook.

So, if you are interested, I’d love to share what I am doing in my free time with you. Expect a lot of quotes, typography and commission work. I want to keep it fun and upbeat.

For today I have selected one of my favorite quotes and put it in the first person. I couldn't have thought of a better saying to start this whole adventure off and I think these words are something that could be applied to people in a myriad of situations. For me, it is the bravery of getting started on this blog today.

Thanks for reading!

XOXO, P

 So far I've been able to keep the mess everywhere except the paper. I hope it stays that way...
