Penelope made a kite. #penelopefanclub #creativekids
penelopefanclub - creativekids -
bianca.carr : I can see my house 😏
ariaskitchen : We did this in 6th grade science. I think Penelope's kite flew longer than most of ours :)
melissapher : @ariaskitchen I'm seriously considering sewing one with Penelope.

In addition to being our weekly tradition, we're celebrating that @epsilon survived today's shenanigans. What should have been a 2 hour bike ride ended up being a 6 hour slog through snow in bike shoes and ankle socks. I was about to call authorities when he texted me that he was okay. It took another hour and a half before we were reunited. Happy to be back with my man.
princesasylvia : Yeah for being safe and yummy food.
megannielsenpatterns : Oh Melissa that is so scary honey!! I am so glad he is ok πŸ™Œ
sometimescreative : Glad he's home safe!
victoriahlane : Happy endings!!
thenearestfuture : Yikes! Glad he's ok!
pinkrapture : I can only imagine how worried you must have been! So glad he's okay and you're all good.

It's the delightfully tacky details that I love about my in-laws' townhouse in Midway. #bathroomselfie Also, let's discuss how my teal shirt and blush jeans totally match the toilet. #the90sarebaaaack

Did my first "scope" tonight. A teeny, awkward tour of my studio and some lettering. Super fun times over on periscope. Will be doing this again. #istilllovecalligraphy βœ’οΈβœ’οΈ someone asked me why I was going calligraphy in the middle of the night. My response,"I have 3 kids, so… there's that." πŸ˜‚

I'm pathetically scraping the remains of this cake off the plate. I made double dark chocolate raspberry and brigadeiro cake (recipe on for a church celebration last night and ate too much of it. It's an addiction. I need more! #sugarrush

faithartandletters : Pardon my French, but holy sh*t! *drools* I lovelovelove the idea of brigadeiro in a cake! I need to check this out. Thank you so much for sharing!
melissapher : @mrs_ghent nope. Sugar Crystals. Although that would be good too.
melissapher : @faithartandletters it's so good. It really brings box cake to life.
mrs_ghent : 🍫😊
princesasylvia : @pinspots you should make this and I'll try it.
annscarlos : That looks absolutely yummy!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

This burger was insanely good, but it still paled in comparison to the company tonight. Catching up with @uberchiccheap and @miriamtribe is always a treat. Ladies, you're both incredible.
melissapher : @foodmadebytom black sheep cafe. It's the buffalo burger. Sooooo goooood.
miriamtribe : Oh man, you too!!
oliveleafcalli : Looks good!
gentrilee : I knew it was the black sheep buffalo burger, just by looking at it. And I've only had it once, a year ago. Haha! It's that good.
suzcunningham : I am starving 😩
livefreemiranda : Love you girls! @uberchiccheap @miriamtribe 😘😘
uberchiccheap : Had SUCH a great time!

Practicing foundations and broad edge pen manipulations today. I'm horrible, but I thought I would post this as a reminder that everyone starts somewhere! Calligraphy takes equal parts patience and practice. Two things I'm making time for this year. #istilllovecalligraphy

anandacrafts : This is so pretty! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
erikaantunes_c : Every great journey starts with small steps. And this is beautiful already! Keep up pushing your limits and improving!
denise_plant : Any books you'd suggest?
melissapher : @denise_plant loads! Visit my blog and search calligraphy gift guide. I have recommended books there.
meisographic : You can print out some guidelines for better understanding the proportions of the letters. Here's the online generator:
darkgravity : You can do it! I'm proud of you!
melissapher : @meisographic thanks for that!! Much needed!
melissapher : @darkgravity thanks for the encouragement. You're one of my inspirations. Your account was among the first I found (way back) that used the broad edge in such a modern way. I'm a huge fan.
