One of the challenging things in learning Modern Calligraphy is tackling the issue of connecting and spacing letters as you’re learning how to flex the pen. This takes some time to get used to.
Practicing with the Spacing Guide Sheet
During our workshop, we address this issue by providing different types of guide sheets. We develop our own materials to help speed up learning and to equip participants on how to successfully practice at home. We provide some exemplars and one-on-one instruction but the key to learning calligraphy is always to set aside time to practice. We highly recommend practicing for at least 30 minutes at least thrice a week.
Handmade gifts are always the best and to help you make your present to your love ones this year, I’ve created six different patterns for you to use in your personal projects. This is the first time I’ve designed a printable pattern based on what I think are the icons of Valentine’s Day. Hop over at Pretty Paper Things to download these goodies.
We’ve created some gift tags for the holiday season so we can personalize our gifts to our loved ones. Last weekend, we had a gift exchange with friends. We made our own wrapping paper using some handmade stamps and colorful stamp pads that we made for last year’s craft party.

I’ve had a request a few weeks back for the map we used for our wedding. We’ve uploaded a map that from Sacred Heart to Marco Polo at our flickr account. You should be able to access it after the jump. I have to look for a link for a file sharing site when I’m not so swamped anymore. I’m planning to do a series of maps or illustration of Cebu churches when my schedule clears.
Please link back or comment below if you used the file. Thanks!
Here’s a map for those getting married at Sacred Heart Parish and celebrating their reception at Chateau de Busay. If you want to use the graphics just message or email me and I can send you a high resolution file.
