A Look Back // Melbourne Modern Calligraphy with Lulu Lucky

calligraphy

When running a business it's pretty incredible to look back and see milestones or moments achieved that had at one time seemed impossible. When I first drafted the idea for a blogging community driven by online and offline workshops I had a list of a few 'dream' events that I wanted to make happen. Calligraphy was one of them.  I was so lucky to team up with Kara from Lulu Lucky to host 3 sold out events last year. It was a dream collaboration and I loved every minute of working with Kara - who for those that don't know is so full of happy energy, enthusiasm and endless inspiration. The woman is a talent force to be reckoned with and it was such fun dreaming up these workshops together.

We took our calligraphy show on the road and hit Melbourne, hosting our workshop at the amazing Pop & Scott studio. It was such a fun day and I can't wait to host more workshops - if you're keen on another collaboration between Blog Society & Lulu Lucky please comment below and I'll see what we can do to bribe Kara down from Brisbane - or perhaps another Blog Society road trip is in order?

A Look Back // Modern Calligraphy With Lulu Lucky

Monday can sometimes get a bad rap don't you think? For most of us it signals the end of the weekend and a slow crawl back to the daily grind of work life and while I certainly need an extra cup (or three) of coffee on a Monday morning, I'm determined to start each week full of possibility.  

As I was chatting to a few blog friends over the weekend I had an idea about how I could start off the week in the right state of mind. I realised that one way to look forward with anticipation was to be able to look back and appreciate the journey that got us to where we stand today.

I have so many wonderful memories from our launch year that I haven't yet shared with my Blog Society family here on the blog so I've decided for the next few weeks to take a look back at some of our most memorable moments - I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane with me and that it might help cure some of the Monday blues...

First up is one of the events that I was most excited to host - Modern Calligraphy with the talented and lovely Kara Hynes aka Lulu Lucky. It was a co-hosting match made in heaven and we had an afternoon of creative calligraphy magic happen at The Corner in Sydney. It was just one of those classes that clicked - the students were fun and amazing, the space bright and light and material challenging but oh so beautiful when all was said and done - I had calligraphy envy by the end of it.  Later that year we went on to host two more of these classes but that first one was such a stand out I can't help to hold it as a favourite.
