Better late than never! This month’s inspirational quote inside the Rule The World Planner is from Arianna Schioldager from Create and Cultivate. Create and Cultivate has built an amazing community, and this quote really spoke to me, so I handlettered it, and included it in the planner. I find myself often thinking that I’m not ready to release something, and spend hours more tinkering with it. When you allow yourself to release something early, before you’re ready, you get valuable feedback, and give your self an opportunity to GET SHIT DONE! Is there a project you’re working on that you keep putting on the back burner? What steps can you take to push that project forward? Can you release just a portion of it? Can you talk about it online? Sometimes even just talking about it online, makes you commit to it. March is a great time to reconnect, and revisit your goals, if you haven’t kept up with your resolutions, check back in with yourself, and get to work; it’s never too late. Goodluck and I can’t wait to see what you’re working on!
I say YES to any opportunity to work with Natalie Sinisgalli. Not only is she one of my favorite people, but she’s SO talented, and the fact that she’s also in Rochester, NY makes me love her even more! For Valentine’s Day I was asked to contribute some calligraphy to a beautiful styled shoot with some other incredible local ladies. I’m always honored to be asked to represent as a local designer. I loved working with red and pink to break up my regular black and white mix. White calligraphy on a bold envelope is such an amazing combo, I can’t get enough! I also experimented with calligraphy on vellum, which is another timeless option – I love seeing a vellum envelope for a really fun invitation. I hope you had a lovely day, and ate lost of chocolate, because obviously that’s the most important part of February 14th!

This month in the Rule The World Planner, I’ve included an inspirational quote from one of my favorite blogs, Lovely Indeed. Chelsea’s projects are so colorful and fun, and her quote is totally fitting! I’ve been craving more time away from the computer, and channeling my creativity in new ways, and Chelsea’s quote couldn’t come at a better time. “Make mistakes, make a mess, make something worthwhile”. Sometimes we get into such a routine, that we forget to make time to explore and experiment! I love art, and creating, but that can take so many forms! I’ve asked my girlfriends to do some craft nights with me, and I can’t wait to dive in! On my calendar this month is making pretty chocolate covered pretzels for Valentine’s Day (LOVE salty and sweet), glazing some ceramic bowls, and trying a few new classes at the gym. How about coloring? Grab the free printable below and tag your finished pieces on instagram! What creative projects do you have planned this month!?
