Dr. Who Quote

Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

So, a couple weeks ago I got an Etsy custom request from a college friend, Lauren. She asked for a hand lettered quote from Dr. Who, a show I do not watch (yet). I think I just saw the virtual wide-eyed stares and heard 'what?!'s from across the interwebs. Do not fear, Whovians, it is on my very long to watch list! I really like this quote and I think it is something people have probably thought before but never really said out loud. I also tried my hand at some styling/staging/production design and I really enjoyed the added physical image, so I will be making an effort to start including those as well. It's so much fun just going around my apartment and grabbing random Chotchkies. Y'all will probably see a bunch of gnomes because I have weird obsessions. It will probably turn into a game of I Spy.

Cutting the rambling, I think this is pretty self explanatory, but if you would like this print, it is up on my Etsy. Make sure to thank Lauren for it's existence! And, as always, give me a shout either on Etsy or through my contact page if you want something custom for yourself!

Thanks for reading & stay beautiful!

XOXO,

P

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...
