Letter Christmas Carols

Christmas Carols Lettering Challenge

Letter a line from each song with us on Instagram!


Where you part of the small group of us lettering in November as we geared up for the Gilmore Girls release? Do you want to keep working on your lettering skills?  Well, I do... and I have gained a few more friends on the journey, so yay!

And this time around, I am ready to really soak in the Christmas songs... who's with me?   So here is the plan, until Christmas Eve there will be a song of the day, and you get to pick any line, or even the title, from the song to letter, doodle around, or create your own kind of art for. Then share a quick snapshot on Instagram!

Now, why would you want to do this?

Because there are going to be prizes!!!  YAY!!!

So there will be three winners - one winner will get a pair of adorable button earrings from (Jen's Store), one winner will win one digital print from (Rhiannon's store), and one of you will win $10 Amazon gift card to buy your own new writing gear (or whatever you want). So that means, you need to be over 18 to enter, or have your parents permission, and the winner of the earrings will have to be in the USA.   See below for more of the rules and fine print... cuz it's too boring to all put up here!








As I mentioned, feel free to pick any line, or phrase, or even the title of the song as your lettering/art/doodle.  And this about fun, not about perfection. So if you are new, don't worry.  You are welcome to join in at any time. Just make sure when you post your pick you use the hashtag so we can add you to the giveaway for each of your entries.

            Forgetting Yesterday 

            Ava Wood

            There are so many new books coming out every single day, it can be hard to decide which ones to pick up and read.  Since there are only so many hours in a day... right?  I'll be honest, it is so hard for me to decide!   And that is why I am so glad to have found a ton of other book fanatics that point out great new authors to try.  And while Ava Wood might not necessarily be a new author, she is certainly newer and could get lost in the sea of authors, so I hope you will check out this review at least.  And if you are interested, maybe stop over at another tour stop, and maybe, just maybe, add this sweet book to your to-read list!
