I’m really excited to be able to share this with you today. This idea has been brewing for a couple of months now, and I’ve finally managed to get everything into place to begin. So without further ado, here is ‘The Positive Post Project!’
I’ve always been someone who wants to connect with people and spread positivity, but over the past few years it’s become increasingly difficult for me to do so because of my illnesses. I don’t have the energy to leave the house to socialise every day, and most days the only people I have the energy to speak to are my parents. Then a while ago I was watching ‘Surprise, Surprise,’ and I heard about the wonderful work of Jodi (onemillionlovelyletters). Amid my happy tears I said to my mom: “I want to do something like that!”
Subsequently, a few months ago, I discovered the lettering community on instagram – essentially a bunch of wonderful people who help each other to improve their lettering and calligraphy skills. I decided to jump on the bandwagon, and really fell in love with lettering and calligraphy. I’ve learnt so much from all of them, and continue to learn more and more each day.
Over the past month or so I’ve sent two hand-lettered quotes to two of my best friends, to let them know how proud I am of them and how fab they are. Knowing they opened up those envelopes and smiled makes me so happy, and had me wishing that I could send these envelopes to anyone who needs a bit of positivity. And then I thought, “why on earth can’t I!?”
And so, ‘The Positive Post Project’ is born!! (Plus, it’s free!)
