Hope y’all are having a fabulous July! I’m so excited to share the photos from a recent event that I hosted at Draper James in Lexington! I’m not gonna lie, it was a highlight of my lettering journey! This Southern girl loves Draper James and when they contacted me about hosting a lettering class there with their customers, I jumped at the chance!
Teaching lettering classes is probably one of the best things I am able to do as a hand letterer. Words have the power to change our lives for the better. The words we tell ourselves and other can either breathe life into us or bring us down. As I started hand lettering inspirational quotes, it changed my life. The words transformed me, giving me more peace, less worry and anxiety and much more joy in every day. I want you to experience that joy, too. And, to be able to share the gift of lettering joyful words in a beautiful way with others, by teaching them to hand letter, is a dream!
The event at Draper James was filled with some of the most wonderful and kind people, who were excited to learn and encourage each other in this beautiful location. The Draper James staff was so helpful, too! Everyone who attended also had the chance to do a little shopping and who could resist? They snatched so many cute items!
One of my favorite people, Sarah Caton of Space, Place & Southern Grace came to hang out and document the evening. She captured so many great photos. I’m so grateful for her smile and her talent! Also, so grateful for her capturing the night, so I could share these photos with you!
I just wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to Draper James for inviting me to hang out with your delightful customers! I love y’all so much!
How gorgeous is this Draper James Floral Knot Love Circle dress this I was able to wear for the event? Draper James has so many gorgeous dress options for every possible event.
Participants learned to letter with my specially created Draper James lettering worksheet. They also took home a Mini Notebook Set, where they could practice what they learned. This Draper James This N That Pouch is the perfect pouch to store pens and other lettering tools.
This evening will definitely go down as one of my all time favorites! I just love all of the students I have had the honor of teaching and this group was no exception! Such a wonderful bunch of ladies! Thank you so much to each of them and Draper James for such a beautiful evening!! And, thanks to Sarah for capturing this night!
