Lydia Kathleen  Calligraphy * Weddings & Events * Custom Orders & Prints — Lettering of the heart. With Love, Lydia personal: @lydiakathleen

hiyaaa friends!
i was able to letter a few products for the new @soulscripts line & it was so much fun 😍 check out their website tomorrow to view, purchase, etc. so thankful for them and their team! ✨

for those who don’t already know, me and my husband are having a sweet baby boy early March 2019. we are so grateful!! 💙

and if you want to see the funniest baby reveal we gave our family when we found out the gender, head over to my personal account (@lydiakathleen). it’s hilarious 😂

i wish you could feel the paper through this picture 😍 these letter pressed beauts were a popular sight at the @flourishindy gathering this past week. i have another event at the end of the month, but if any are left they’ll be up for grabs!

i love hand-lettering logos. loooove it! having the opportunity to be a small, small part in someone else’s dream and new beginning or transition is one of the greatest feelings in the world. thanks for choosing me to create this for you, @5eastbyhalimae 🤗

take time to reflect today. open yourself up to what you’re feeling and be honest. i’ve learned that it’s only in the pressing in, you begin to discover Light. it may take time to reach the Light, but it’s there, guiding you and reminding you to breathe. reminding you that you’re human, and that’s a beautifully difficult thing sometimes.
invite yourself into your own heart. there’s so much to discover, to heal, to empower, to trust.

my first-ever canvas painting for this little suga’s nursery. the process taught me grace, discipline and a new understanding of sculpting words. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the back story: if I’m honest, i was nervous to post this “permanently” on my page bc sometimes, most times, it’s easier for me to notice the wrongs and over criticize myself. isn’t that true of life - we, well definitely me, so easily look at the imperfections thinking “how will someone ever love this... why didn’t it turn out this way...” you name it! we focus so hard on our weaknesses that we so easily overshadow our giftings and the reality that we have much more beauty within us than we choose to recognize. a beauty that is generally seen from another’s eye, but not the mirrors ours reflect. i decided to post this because i want to remember. remember this revelation, this process and this specific painting.

when i gave this piece to my client-friend, she loved it. she actually preferred the differences of the lines and only saw its worth, not the negativity i captured. a lesson learned, and one that will continue with each passing day. so loves, take this as an encouragement that YOU, dear, are far more capable than you will ever know.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ps. if you read this entire thing, you go girl 🙃

wise words from a dear friend. you are worth far more than the sidelines, my dear. take courage, stand up and believe it.

always 🌿

this was my first-ever acrylic piece i did for an outdoor wedding this summer. it was so fun (and challenging!) performing a new medium, but since then it has quickly become one of my most popular products to execute... and i wouldn’t have it any other way 😍

dance is what brought me here. the curves, the movement, the expression of what’s inside; the motions and the freedom resembled writing and it led me to this path. i’m so grateful.
