Art Cards – Week 43 – Slowing Down

I am looking forward to taking a typography class next semester, so I’ve been wanting to experiment more with handwritten typography lately. I found some great inspiration this past week, which triggered ideas for my art cards.

It’s been difficult to find the time and, ironically, the energy, to slow down lately, and make some down time for myself, so I thought these cards would be fun exercises and reminders.

As you know, I try very hard to soak up the quiet moments and breath in fresh air whenever possible.

It seems simple enough to slow down and embrace the changing season, right? I’m going to try harder to do just that!

  • Terri,
    What a wonderful post! I know how hard it is to slow down and take time for oneself. Thanks for the reminder. Enjoy the typography class — I’m jealous!

  • Excellent advice! The class sounds right up your alley.

  • Sounds like a good idea, Terri! It’s actually easier for me to slow down than to speed up!

    Hang in there… we actually sort of lost our autumn suddenly. It snowed about 10″ yesterday! Lots of big branches came down on cars, streets, power lines, etc. Kind of crazy to see snow already…. but it’s also quite pretty. 🙂

  • The typography class sounds really interesting. I wish we had fun courses like that around here but so far no luck. I can’t wait to see what you learn. 🙂

  • Hello Terri,

    I do hope you learn lots at your next class. The art cards are very inspiring. You will have to put one on the fridge to remind you.

    Happy days.

  • Goodness! I’m so behind on commenting – sorry… I’m not sure whether that means I need to slow down, or speed up! Maybe it means I should get a better phone lol 😉

    It’s really hard to slow down isn’t it – sometimes though it gets to the point where you have to just slam on those breaks and say “enough already”!

    Ohhh typography – I would love to get better at letter doodelling (my form of typography) so I’ll be watching with interest and hopefully picking up a few pointers x
