redrabbitlinda : Very pretty!
lindayoshida : Beautiful <3
kathryncaplinger : My name is Kathy (well I like Kathryn a ton better) but I HATE how all of the K's look in calligraphy. I'm not creative enough to dream up a prettier K.....but I keep trying! The C is soooooo much nicer!
mrsemmaball : Girl... 😍
marjiebc : @kathryncaplinger that's very Anne of Green Gables of you. πŸ˜‰
cathybeanscott : Ooooooh!!! I love this!!!

modernmaven : So much fun!!
theprojectgirl : So fun catching up tonight! Let's really get together and let me know how I can help you out with this new baby coming. I'm just 10 min away!
shelbyosmond : Thanks for letting me film over the top of you!!😊 You have incredible talent!!
melissapher : @aruffledlife oh my gosh, you're right! Alice in wonderland party collab next spring?
melissapher : @livylovestorun I saw you from afar, but I couldn't seem to get out of my seat. #pregnancyprobs Everytime I see you it's always so busy. We need to get our kiddos together for a play date.

jayci_jean : Love your pics!

I love painting textures with ink. Getting a little impatient to wait for it all to dry though. #istilllovecalligraphy
istilllovecalligraphy -
anniekblake : I'm doing the same thing with now!
blueeyedfreckle : Blow dryer. I am the most impatient painter ever. When I did oils back in college I had to paint on at least 5-10 pieces at a time bc I'd ruin a piece over not being able to just stop. If I worked on 10 then I could just hop on over to the next piece!
amaryllistruth : Ah, try being an oil painter! Actually dabbling in watercolors recently because my patience (or lack of) is getting the best of me.
melissapher : @amaryllistruth Ah, so true!!! I studied painting and drawing in college, I had to have 2 watercolors going, but 5-7 oils going because I'd get too impatient!
melissapher : @blueeyedfreckle I remember doing that, too. I blame that on my lack of focus these days. I have to be in the middle of 5+ projects at a time, because I have to do stuff in small spurts.
waffluv : I know, right! Who has time to wait for stuff to dry! Alla prima is pretty much the only way to paint for me:)
shiningegg : I've been practicing my calligraphy while I wait for my paints to dry!

melissapher : @hillaryschu oct 2, but I could go just about anytime.
_beckykimball : Sad I didn't get to say hello last night!
melissapher : @_beckykimball I kinda hid in a corner. Will I see you tomorrow?

brandonandallyson : Is this the cookie of the month? I need it!!
roseann_g : Can you please tell me the name of this cookie, and where it's from? Please?
melissapher : @roseann_g it's the cookie of the month from @rubysnap. SOOO good!
melissapher : @brandonandallyson yes! It's divine!
celesterosenlof : So I definitely went to Ruby Snap moments after seeing this photo. Considered the rocky road cookie but got the other cookie of the month, the raspberry, peach and goat cheese. Just saying, you fed my addiction. Haha
melissapher : @celesterosenlof haha! I got the raspberry peach one too. Yum!
roseann_g : Thank you!! I need one right now!
drenewt : Get in my belly!

#tbt to that one time a week and a half ago when I thought it'd be a good idea to go on a bike ride with Penelope and extended Fam at 35 1/2 weeks. Penelope rode circles around me, even on her 40lb bike. I'm saddle sore just looking at this pic. #babybump #fixie @jototes @missionbicycle

melissapher : @bookbound oh nice! I wish we lived in a better biking area. We do, but we don't. Nothing is flat where we are, but there are insane mountain biking trails. I miss city riding. Also, depending where you live, some people feel that if you're bringing a human into this world that the world has a say on how you do it. I certainly hope that's not your experience! I had a pretty rough welcoming to mommyhood.
lostrack621 : @melissapher those leggings, though! And your smile--you at least *look* like you aren't having a hard time...
morgan_virginia : You go girl!
melissapher : @lostrack621 thanks!! I try.
littlemoondance : Brave woman!
passagehill : Oh my word!
mollybee23 : Hot bike though. So exciting getting ready for baby 3?
honeyandgoldau : Love that you coordinate your helmet & wheels! :)
