Something Gold Photography Giveaway

| Leave a Comment

I  met Emily of Something Gold Photography at my first calligraphy class. I didn’t know anyone else there at the class and so it was nice to meet someone so warm and friendly. I knew after I left that day that this chance encounter would turn out to be a friendship, and a good business relationship as well!

When she asked me to create a special piece for a giveaway to coincide with the week of her launching a new website, I was ecstatic! Of course I want to!

So here are the first fruits of that new friendship! She’s giving away the framed piece shown above. Just head over to her blog post about the giveaway to get all the details on how to enter. And be sure to click around her website to see her beautiful photography. If you like what you see, you should follow her on Instagram for daily photos :)

In the beginning…


I never thought that I would have a website all to my own, but here we are! With it comes a spectrum of emotions. Mainly excitement and expectation, but with a hint of fear and anxiety – as with all good things! Calligraphy is one of the best things to ever happen to me, and I can’t wait to share little bits of it with you going forward.

And that’s what I hope to do here. I wanted my site to have a blog so I can share little nuggets with anyone who may be listening. My husband challenged me early on to do at least one personal calligraphy project per week, as a way to practice, yes, but also to stretch my creativity and force me to get into a good rhythm where I can consistently pump out good work. I want to share those with you!

And mixed into those, will be giveaways, information about upcoming classes, and the occasional “how-to” post (maybe with video?) where I share how I’ve figured out how to do something. I don’t claim to be the be-all and end-all when it comes to this stuff, but this is how I learned! I watched how others have done things for years, tried those methods out, and found what worked best for me.

So follow along if you’d like! I’ll be tweeting or posting on Instagram/Facebook for most of these blog posts, so you can catch them there. Or if you prefer getting your content via email, throw your address in the sign-up form at the bottom of the page to receive periodic emails from me.

Love you all!
