I am super excited to be leaving for our family vacation to Chile in a couple of weeks! I haven’t seen most of my family for about 4 ½ years, and most of them have only seen our youngest boys just in pictures and videos, so I cannot wait! . BUT because we'll be gone for about a month, a lot of items on my shops are going to be frozen until we come back, I will be having a sale next week to make up for the inconvenience, and my subscribers get early access plus a bonus! The link to subscribe is on my profile 🙌🏻💕. . Sketched this on my iPad pro using the Procreate app and a trick shared by the super talented @stefankunz about layering letters before writing🤓 . #ipadlettering #ipadcalligraphy #handlettering #brushcalligraphy #digitalcalligraphy #digitallettering #howjoyfulsketch #goodtype
Today I am sharing 15 of my favorite lettering books for beginners in my blog 📗📕📚📙 You can also swipe to see a peek of how I lettered the cover image in #procreateapp using my iPad Pro! . And, I totally forgot that I let a friend borrow 2 of them, so those didn’t make the cover picture 😳. But I’ll update it as soon as those babies are back. . Do you guys have some favorites to add to the list? . I’ll add the link in my stories! 🙌🏻. . #letteringbooks #thebestletteringbook #calligraphybook #howjoyfulreview #handlettering #letteringforbeginners #calligraphyforbeginners #letteringbook #thebestcalligraphybook

Because it can’t just be me that sticks the tongue out when the curves get tricky, right? . Yesterday I had a temporary office in the middle of nowhere, and the super talented (and lovely) Sara from @beautyfromashesphotos took pictures for my website & blog 💕. . I’ve had this photo shoot planned in my head for almost three years, and between the sickness of my pregnancies, the postpartum depression and then all the little things I was self-conscious about, the last thing in my mind was to take a picture of myself. And on top of that, let the whole world see them, oh heck no!! . So this photo session was such a special celebration because it took a lot to finally accept and love myself just the way I am after my 3 boys. To throw my expectations out the window and embrace my imperfections 🙌🏻 to make this point in my journey permanent with all those pictures. . Now, Mother Nature didn’t make it easy as it was the first snow day in months for us, but luckily our location had no snow, only extreme cold and wind 🤔😳(ouch, but hopefully not noticeable in the pictures) My fingers where almost purple but hey! As my husband pointed out, they matched my hair 😂. . I am excited to share the pro pictures once they are ready and also to share a bit more about this self-love journey that is bringing the “Joy” back to my life (puns, anyone?) . If anyone wants to see, I made a little video in my IG stories about the super colorful dress I made and also the shoot 😊 . Ps. I also notice that I stick my tong when I drive, so at least it’s not only vectorizing that does it 😳 what about you guys?
When I was a teen, I was a crazy-cat-teenager, with 4 of surrounding me whenever they felt like it 😸. . Sadly now I’m allergic to them ( I found out after moving to the USA, maybe it’s just North American cats 🤔hmmm...) but I always remember my crazy companions, so I made this for my cut-file shop @howjoyfulfiles . And the question today is: Are you guys dog or cat people?? If none of them, what kind of pet do you have? Rocks and succulents count too!! 🤗 . #howjoyfulfiles #handlettering #ipadlettering #catlovers #catsofinstagram
