Tomorrow is National Pencil Day!
I remember when I was young, I couldn’t wait to move from using a pencil at school to using a pen.
It was probably around 5th or 6th grade…and, to me, it meant that I had finally arrived.
Erasing wasn’t a real option (erasable pens at that time were horrible – no Pilot Frixions to be had), so using a pen meant you were secure in your penmanship & in your answers.
Now, fast forward a million years.
Pencils are now my go-to writing instruments.
And, if you’re like me, you own about 56947348594 of them. I mean, really…who can resist the $1 sets from Target?
Heidi’s new Lettering Kit – available now at select JOANN stores & on joann.com – is the perfect way to put those pencils to use…it even comes with gorgeous black & floral pencil of its own, as well as a darling little eraser, just in case.
The book included in the kit is a wonderful guide to help you perfect your hand-lettering.
It comes complete with directions & practice pages…
…and even gives you different style options to replicate.
I love using a pencil in this book because it gives me the chance to continue practicing over and over…something I definitely need.
This lettering stuff is NOT easy! But, practice makes progress, for sure.
Check out all of Heidi’s new kits here – on sale now for 50% off!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
I hope I’ve inspired you to pick up a pencil this weekend…and get to practicing your lettering.
