When I started years ago, lettering was my therapy. I learned all the basics and loved it! But there seemed to be a disconnect between knowing the basics and the impossible amount of practice to become an expert. I didn't feel confident in my lettering skills and I couldn't get past comparisons that were making me feel bad about all of my lettering practice. I knew that practice would help me improve, but every time I practiced, it seemed like I couldn't create anything that looked good.
Then life hit me pretty hard and I needed lettering to be my therapy again. I knew that I needed to be able to practice in a way that made me feel good again instead of bringing me down.
That's when I started creating a process of practicing my lettering with confidence. I was able to use my lettering practice as a therapy again. Instead of feeling like I wasn't good enough after practicing, I felt confident in my abilities to letter. And not only that, but I also started feeling confident in my abilities to handle the challenges I was facing in my life.
My lettering practice became the most energizing part of my day. I would leave my lettering desk feeling refreshed, the way you feel after a power nap or a good night's rest. I felt proud of my lettering and confident to conquer my day. That's what I want for you.
Let me introduce you to The Confident Lettering Practice.
The Confident Lettering Practice is a 6-week online guided practice that walks you through the process I created to go from not feeling good enough to start making your lettering practice work for you. Start taking control of what you get to do with your lettering instead of letting the comparisons and doubts hold you back.
That sounds pretty good, right? Now you may be thinking, "But Sarah, I really don't have time to practice."
I get that. That's the number one thing I hear from YOU when it comes to practicing lettering. There's not enough time. It is true that we'll never get more time in our day. This guided practice is designed to only take 10-15 minutes a day. We may not be able to find an hour to practice, but 15 minutes is doable. Wake up 15 minutes earlier, go to bed 15 minutes later, spend 10 minutes less on social media. I know you want to improve your lettering, let me motivate you to spend just 10-15 minutes a day to become more confident in your lettering and life.

"I love calligraphy, but I've struggled with being confident in my lettering. I tend to see the flaws in my lettering and compare it to everyone else's lettering. [Sarah] has helped me to feel more confident in using my own style and has helped me to stop pointing out the flaws in my own lettering. Once again, thank you so much!" -Kaelyn
