Happy St. Patty’s Day

Happy Write It Wednesday!

We’ve made it to the middle of the week which means it’s almost the weekend where most of us might actually be able to catch up on sleep no thanks to the time change. Wishful thinking I know but you just never know what could happen. Anyways, since Friday is St. Patty’s Day, I thought I would do some faux calligraphy. Let’s get started with “Happy St. Patty’s Day…”

Step #2:

Step #3:

This then gave my phrase the calligraphy look without it truly being calligraphy. In other words, for those who don’t know, it gave the lines that should be thicker, thicker leaving the thinner lines the way they need to be when writing calligraphy style.

All I plan on doing is relaxing after I take my practice tests for the test I’ve got in a couple of weeks. I’ve been nonstop with just studying and making flash cards; except for when I get up to either eat or walk on the treadmill. And gosh dar n it; I’m exhausted! Anyways, hope you enjoyed my quick post for the day. Don’t forget tomorrow I’ll be posting the other two optional diffusers that come with Young Living’s Starter Kit.
