My resolution to be more creative in 2016

One of my biggest resolutions this year is to be more creative. I’ve always been a creative person and I find it relaxing to sit down and make something from scratch. This year, I want to be able to set aside time for myself and make things. Now at first, that might sound like an odd resolution but I had the opportunity to take a calligraphy class here in Charlotte before the holidays and it got that little creative bug in me going again.

Let me start by saying that taking a calligraphy class has been on my to-do list, my wish list, my bucket list, whatever list it was – learning calligraphy was on it. I’m so happy I was able to connect with Stefanie of Stroman Studios to take her Cupcakes and Calligraphy class. What exactly is it? Well first of all, yes – there’s cupcakes. The class is an introduction to the art of calligraphy but the manor in which Stefanie teaches the class and guides you through the techniques and tricks leaves everything stress free and enjoyable.

The best part about the class was that all of the necessary supplies were provided for you. They’re included in the cost of the class – How great is that?? No need to go online or to your local craft store in search of items you have no idea what you’re looking for. Not only are they provided for you but you get all the details about what’s what and what everything is used for… pens, nibs, ink, and even paper, Stefanie’s got you covered! You can’t get more detailed than that! I always thought calligraphy was going to be intimidating because of how hard it looks and how effortless professional calligraphers make it seem. This was not the case at all! I really enjoyed taking Stefanie’s Cupcakes and Calligraphy class and I can’t wait to take more & keep practicing this beautiful skill! If you’re in the Charlotte area and looking to learn calligraphy, there will be more classes starting in February!
