Happy Birthday Month,
Happy February! This is always a very exciting month for me, but this year is especially thrilling. First of all, it is my birthday month. Even though I am not super excited about turning 35, I am excited about what this year has already brought me and what is to come. I have big news that I can’t share yet, but it is a big milestone in my life. So, stay tuned for March! I love celebrating my birthday by dancing with my friends. I don’t dance as much as I used to do in the past, but I make a point to dance on my birthday. What kind of music do I dance to? Anything! But if you ask me, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Pitbull get me dancing all the time. Here is a Spotify playlist of my fave dancing songs in case you feel like dancing with me for my birthday.
February carries love. Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, Friendship Day, whatever you want to call it, is the day when I can eat chocolate and drink champagne. My fiance and I make this day about me. His day is a month later. We have been doing that since we met and I think is fair. Of course, we show our love to each other everyday, but is nice to have our own days. However you do it, here is a free download printable card for you to print on 6.25x9 inches cardstock, and give to your boo.
Paperloveme Calligraphy is launching Intermediate Calligraphy in-person classes and workbook this month! Woot Woot! I am beyond excited! Workbook Kits will be available for sale in the website by the second week of February, and they are on pre-sale now at an early bird price! Because it is my birthday, I am also discounting the Workbook Kits for Beginners until the one for Intermediate’s launch. Both workbooks will go back to regular price on February 9th.
Last but not least, I have a new addition to the Paperloveme family. Kelly is interning with me during the Spring as a part of her English 4 WISE class which allows seniors to explore a “third space” (usually a job or internship) during their second semester. She will be helping making more calligraphy videos for you. So, whenever you see any cool videos on the blog or social media, it’s thanks to her!
I hope February brings you love and commitment — commitment to yourself to ensure that you make time for you. Celebrate the love that you give to others, but also make time to Treat.Yo.Self!
P.S. I appreciate your support so much, and the fact that you are receiving this e-mail, that I can’t stop gifting! Here is a desktop screen saver with the month of February. Enjoy!!
