Hand Lettered Design Co.

I am so excited to share with you my secret crush I have on hand lettered design. As a painted I have often dreamt of the day I could just hand letter a sign with no stencil. I have obsessed over learning and have just been afraid to pull the trigger. That is until now. I want to introduce you to Hand Lettered Design Co.

So I want to walk you through my experience with this amazing company. When you visit their website you are instantly greeted with an offer for a year full of wholehearted lettering. By joining their email list you are instantly connected with monthly happy emails. Why not learn something new everyday? These emails include

  • Hand Lettering Tips, including Step-by-Step process for exactly how you can use lettering to add more meaning to you life.
  • Lettering Prompts and Worksheets to inspire you to have fun lettering yourself.
  • Interviews from awesome Lettering Artists who will share their experiences and tips for making lettering an inspiring part of your life.
  • Opportunities to become part of their community of women for you who love lettering and also want to live more joyful, intentional lives while supporting each other.


Let me introduce you to Lisa and let her tell you a little more about herself.

I’m the Creative Founder and Art Director of Hand Lettered Design. (I’m so glad you’re here!)

Can I share a little story with you? Okay, awesome.

Lettering has changed my life. After going through some of the most challenging times of my life, I was beyond stressed and overwhelmed. I knew I was so lucky to be a mom of 3 beautiful children and have a wonderful life but the struggles were real and I had a hard time coping with it all. When I found lettering, it was a way to have my own little creative escape (which I desperately needed!). It also helped me focus on uplifting words and as I would write them, it was almost a mindful practice that changed my thoughts and consequently my experiences. More than just learning pretty letters, I want lettering to change your life too.

At the beginning of 2017, I spent time thinking about how I could teach and share this whole process with you. As I cleared my head and heart and really opened up to what I should do, I could feel revelations coming, a little at a time helping me know how I could best serve YOU throughout this whole year.

And a Year of Wholehearted Lettering was born…

So let’s share with you guys what I received from Lisa.

I also love their Creative Lettering Journal ($28)

This 84-page spiral bound book includes lettering guides (upper and lowercase alphabet), coloring and tracing pages, reflective journal pages, thank you cards, and wreath outlines for framing your own creations.

In the Creative Lettering Journal, you will find guides for practicing the entire lowercase and uppercase script alphabet, step-by-step directions for how to make your lettering look like modern calligraphy and finished lettered designs to trace for practice. This is a great resource for learning and practicing your hand lettering and would make a great gift!

There are 14 beautiful coloring pages that you can color in using colored pencils, watercolors, crayons, gelly roll markers, you name it! The backs of the coloring pages are blank so you can pull them out to frame if you’d like to – each one has faint dotted lines around 3 sides to make it easy to cut it down to 8×10 size and frame. If you’re not going to remove it, that blank backside is a great place for more journaling or lettering practice.

The 14 reflective journaling pages include my insights about the quotes shared as well as a prompt for you to journal your own thoughts and feelings. Each one is meant to be short and sweet to be able to do in one sitting (and then you feel like you’d accomplished something!).

At the end of the book, there are 2 color-in Thank You Cards that you can cut out, fold in half and send to someone you love which goes along perfectly with the theme of Gratitude present throughout the Creative Lettering Journal.

After that, you’ll see two blank wreaths where you can add your own lettering designs! After you’ve have a chance to practice, this is a great opportunity to add your touch to these pages and create something beautiful!

Tools you will need: I recommend buying Crayola Super Tip Markers to use with this journal (they’re awesome and so affordable!) and then whatever you prefer to color with (colored pencils, etc.) and that’s it! It’s super affordable to get started Creative Lettering Journal!


Lisa also has tons of digital download pages of her hand lettered creations.



Hand Lettered Design Co. also offers online courses. What could be easier then learning in the comfort of your own home (in your jammies and top bun of course).

Rae Dunn Insanity

So I stopped by my local Marshall’s yesterday since I was at Target next door. I have pretty much gave up on looking for Rae Dunn on a regular basis anymore. I spent  most of the summer as we relocated with the Army from North Carolina to Kansas stopping at every TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshall’s I could find with zero to no luck. Not so much as even a mug, and my frustration was getting the best of me. The final straw that broke the camel’s back so to speak was an altercation I got in with another RD Buyer in a Home Goods in the middle of who know’s where.
