word art, pen and ink, modern calligraphy, OLW, custom hand lettering

Hello there! Let me say officially "Happy New Year" to all of you!

I still am trying to get back into 'work mode' from the holidays but what does get me so excited is thinking about all of the art prints I get the pleasure of hand lettering this time of year for all of you! I have already had a little contest over on Instagram for a FREE print inked by me last week and ya just never know when I may offer another, so make sure you are following along! ;)

What hand prints are popular this time of year, you may ask? . . . well it's the "one little word" or "OLW" art prints that people like to pick to focus on for the rest of the year. Some people pick resolutions, some people pick one little word to push them through . . . it is just something fun to think about and decide if you too would like to join in on the fun. I love hand lettering these one little words for my customers and friends since it's been so popular the past few years! I started doing them a couple years ago, made it official last year and now looking forward to doing even more this year! I already have orders to fill but wanted you all to know that I am doing them again this year in case you'd like one done.

These prints of your custom one little word, look great framed, blown up to a poster size or saved as your desktop and used as a daily reminder to focus on your one little word! Plus they make an amazing piece of art if I do say so myself! ;)

Do you want to know why I really enjoy doing these for my clients? I love seeing people get excited about their words they choose as it's a personal journey and it brings people together to focus on making themselves better for the year and I don't know about you, but personally I am always striving for a better 'self'. ;) Plus some of the stories behind why they choose the words they do really are heartfelt! Of course I am super humbled to be asked to do this for you all and it feels amazing to be a part of it.

I would love the opportunity to ink your #OLW for you . . .  just simply choose the custom one little word listing in my shop, to get your custom OLW design inked just for you!

I will be sharing my own personal #OLW soon as it took awhile to decide on a word but I *think* I am finally there! YAY!

I was asked last week if I could ink kid's names in place of their OLW with this listing and that would be fine. So if you have been wanting to get your kids' names done to frame for their room or even your last name inked for a gallery wall, simply purchase this listing and then we can discuss your custom print!

Also, in case you don't know, I am always inking some new art prints for the shop and adding them when I can and I am hoping to set a goal to add one NEW one a week in 2016, so we will see how that goes. In the meantime, if you have a great idea for a print, I would love to hear it so shoot me an email at and we'll chat!
So tell me, what's YOUR one little word this year? Let me know below . . .
