tool kit winner Who says handwriting is a dying art? If the comments from my last post are any indication, you all are keeping it very much alive.  Here are all the ways you use your handwriting: in teaching recipes thank you cards postcards & letters taking notes to-do lists favorite quotes shopping & grocery lists calendars & planners journals doodling love notes place cards & party stuff certificates addressing envelopes posters handouts for children Christmas cards birthday cards post-it notes Wow!  Just yesterday my son (who's 14) said, "I'm so glad I got to learn cursive before they stopped teaching it in schools."  Maybe that's just because he's got me for a mom, but I don't think he's alone in wondering what's going to happen to handwriting as we all get more and more attached to our digital devices.  Next week, I've got a great book to recommend on that very topic.  And lots of other books and a few projects, since I basically took a break all month by hosting giveaways instead of sharing my work in progress. With my new workshops making the rounds, I'm also hoping to throw some handwriting news in every week.  If you're new to the blog, here's how it works:  I blog once a week, wrapping up all my creative activities from the previous week (sort of like a mini-version of Studio Yearbook One).  To subscribe, just leave a comment on any post & check the box to get follow-up posts via email.  (And I only post once a week, so you won't be flooded with news from my little studio.) And congratulations to Rhonda Horton, winner of this week's giveaway!  All the blog entries, Instagram regrams, Facebook shares, and tweets made for an exciting week.  Rhonda wins a Love Your Letters Tool Kit—pens, pencils & paper to practice her handwriting, and some notecards and stickers to make the package bright and shiny.  Rhonda, drop me a note with your snail mail address and I'll get your package shipped out. Thank you to everyone who entered.  I wish I had a hundred packages to ship! Coming Soon:  the 2015 Summer Reading Program. Everyone gets a prize. Details here on the blog next month!

    Heartfelt thanks for sharing your love of handwriting with all of us, Gina! It’s such a joy to know kindred spirits who enjoy creative lettering of all kinds. It’s very sad that so many schools have stopped teaching cursive handwriting. Schools that continue to teach this skill are giving our students a true gift! I’m looking forward to your book recommendation and your 2015 Summer Reading Program! Thanks for all of the lovely gifts to celebrate National Letter Writing Month. I find so much inspiration here in every post. Happy Weekend! ♡

    What is the blue pencil and what is it used for? 🙂

    • gina says:

      Blue pencil is non-reproducing. So if you’re going to write something and then copy or scan it, you don’t need to erase blue pencil. (More details in my Love Your Letters Challenge Workshop!)
