MOST RECENT

Hello. I’m Lindsey. I’m a right-handed calligrapher and a left-handed artist. I wrote my first volume of poetry when I was six, I’m currently working on a collection of poems called Bring Your Empty Hands about the space emptiness can embody, the many shapes of soil, and how a bone is a prayer. I am a mother of three young children, they are creators, builders, a gaggle of giggles who wave their imaginations like prayer flags. I have spent lifetimes loving my husband in many different forms. I will love him and search for him in every other lifetime. He is my favorite artist and his unfailing support is a bedrock, a root, a bowl of bone broth, a hearth, a bookcase. I write, paint, calligraph in a round studio behind our home in a sunny meadow in the jagged-skyline of evergreens by the sea in Port Townsend. I am completely at home.

AND (!!!!!!!!!) I am now a faculty member of the Port Townsend School of the Arts. I am going to teach my Write a Beautiful Letter Class there in June, a three week workshop 4th, 11th, and 18th, from 6-9. Link in my profile. Do come write letters with me, and per the feedback from my November class, this one will be delightfully longer! I have some special surprises!

I cut my own hair last week. A new do. A sparse desk with a sharp pencil. A return to the light.

Oh boy. Where do I begin? I know it’s been a while since I’ve been here but life has been just a little bit hectic. First off, @inkandjo is growing and expecting its newest and littlest team member to join us in April 2018 and we are so unbelievably excited...and nervous and scared as I’m sure any first time parents can attest to! Speaking of which, for all you mamas and papas out there, what would be your one advice to new parents? I’d love to hear some personal experiences/advice!
.
In more @inkandjo news - things have been an absolute whirlwind around here. I’m fully booked for invitations for 2018 weddings and each couple that I’m working with has such a unique and distinct vision and I am looking forward to sharing some peeks into those projects!
.
I’m hoping to be back here more regularly (and will be at least more than once every few months 😉). I have had to deprioritize social media a little bit as I’m learning to take better care of myself and listen to my body when it tells me that I need to rest and slow down. I hope you’ve all been well and can’t wait to share more over the new few weeks! #babyinkandjo #26weeks

Another leafy piece because they're so therapeutic to paint

I like this verse

F is for funny people (I like them)

G is for Guam 🐓

And that's the end of my alphabet series because I didn't do any more letters in advance! 😅 (just kidding, maybe, we'll see)

E is for...

Today I discovered what living the best life is like (see my story) 🍃🐓🐄🌳🌞

As you can tell the 8 and I struggled a lot. @theletteringtribe #tlt_2018

This c turned out a little wonky forgive me!! Freehanding serif letters is a 10 on a difficulty scale of 1-5, but I guess that also counts as one of my lettering goals for this year (improving print typography!) 🙃

Just a fair heads up - if you don't like me posting 3 times a day and then not posting for two weeks you should probably unfollow me now 😁 #letscreateletters #createinspirepositivity @lettersbyshells @createinspirepositivity @hazelslettering @tjt.design

I think I have a problem committing to these kinds of series...I like these florals much better so let's see how long this lasts 😅 •

I love letters. I love the way it feels to open the mail box and see something handwritten. I love every single handwriting style. I love the way the letters curl together, when the scrawl is a mystery, when the minuscules are miniscule, when my husband writes all capitols, when my best friend writes on her envelope apologizing for the poverty of her letter-writing supplies (she is the most creative with reusing her bill envelopes!), I love every single bit of it. Because of this unabashed love, I want to share this joy with you. Sign up by January 8th via the link in my profile to receive my hand-calligraphed newsletter this February, in the mail! Days of Yore, Days of Yore! I will be teaching another How to Write a Beautiful Letter Workshop very soon, the details are coming together. Sign up now. If you’re already signed up, watch the mail next month! I will send my newsletter as far as you live, any zone welcome.

The majority of my non-Bible verse lettering pieces relate to gratitude/thankfulness because I think it's so important!!! #wordstolivebydecember @leallylettering

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭9:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬
🎄Merry Christmas everyone!🎄

It's a little past the one year mark that I started my lettering Instagram and started making art again as a hobby 🎨 Above all, I'm thankful that God has blessed me with a love for art (I wouldn't even call it a talent because anyone can learn how to do this) and a calling to use my IG as a way to glorify Him; I hope in the coming year I'll be able to do that more and more! And of course--my favorite @ohceoh who introduced me to this wonderful world of calligraphy hehe 😍❤ There's so so many talented people in the calligraphy community I can't even begin to name everyone but I know I definitely wouldn't have improved as much as I did without being constantly inspired by other talented artists' works on Instagram and encouraged by everyone's comments and messages. I remember being super excited when my favorite calligraphers (the accounts I admired aka stalked for hours on end before I actually made my own IG) started following me half a year ago. To name a few: @marlene.makes @artbysarahku @jesstipletters @calligraphylovemnl @asiabasiajensen 💕) Go check them out if you haven't already - all of their accounts have something uniquely special that makes them stand out 🤗 I'm also thankful that I have this creative outlet and a way to document my painting/calligraphy progress and that 1500 of you think it's worthwhile enough to follow along for the ride 😅 okay end sappy post. •
Note: don't you think this would look nice as a notebook cover or phone case? 😇
Another note: I was scared to mess up writing on the white middle part so the lettering was actually done separately and overlayed with photoshop mix on my phone (isn't that cool!!) #noipadpro

Probably my favorite line out of all the Christmas songs 😊

@drphmartins bleedproof white, artists loft paints, @pentelofamerica aquash #tltchristmas @theletteringtribe

Possible holiday wreaths for the Christmas card! I really didn't like them the first day I painted these but they grew on me a little after the second day...does that ever happen to you?? 🌲 I forgot to bring home all my regular paintbrushes from San Diego but thankfully I had my @pentelofamerica waterbrushes in my travel art supply case so I'm not brush-less the next three weeks 🤗

Especially in the midst of final exams, it's so difficult to put my hope and trust in Christ rather than my own work and studies in order to get a good grade. This verse is a reminder to me that results and test scores provide such small and insignificant joy compared to being in His presence. "You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever." Psalm 16:11
