Be mindful with hand lettering {freebie alert}

Happy New Year, friends! We are about a week deep into 2022 and it sure feels like the fast pace of life is continuing.

I would absolutely love to do this and am currently working on the logistics of it all. But, in the meantime, I'm compiling some resources for you so you can start some practicing on your own! Here are the first three things you need to know about hand lettering beforehand: Your handwriting is different than mine. You and I aren't going to have the exact style of writing.
