Crafting my way through life - one adventure at a time.

Hi! I'm LisaDV. Thanks for stopping by. This is my life, crazy and chaotic most of the time, and I wouldn't change a thing.

Wednesday, July 20, 2016


Wait! What do you mean it's Wednesday already?!  I just was visiting some desks yesterday. Yeah, I'm that far behind this week.  Oh, heck, I'm that far behind THIS YEAR. ha.

Today my desk was beside the pool at the hotel. We're going to the neurologists this week for my daughter. So again this week I will be late to some desks.The doctors office is in the same town my husband has a client that he goes to each week. So we just tag along for the extra days - swim in the pool, sometimes sightseeing, and today -- Dave and Busters.Both of my tween and my teen are excited.

What did my work entail?  Hand lettering. What I realize is that I need more practice. Hand lettering is an easy on the go practice and activity.  I tend to not do it so much at home. It's great when I have down time at co-op or waiting for the kids at catechism, but it's summer and neither are going on.  I need to make more time for it.

So that's me this week. Happy Wednesday!


  1. Hi Lisa, I love the idea of practising lettering as a way to pass the time. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #3

  2. Hello Lisa. What a great item to take with you when sitting around waiting. Good idea. Hope all goes well with the neurologist.
    Take care. God bless.

  3. Great practising... good luck at the Dr's. Elaine no. 15

  4. Thanks for visiting me earlier. I saw the idea of the quilt on Pinterest and once I see something I like I have to have a go at it. I'm loving how it's working out and am certain the grandchildren will have lots of fun with it. I really hope all goes well with you daughter.

  5. I need to take a leaf out of your book with this lettering. My real dread of journalling - I have lots of pages without writing as a result.
    Hoe your DH is ok now following the dreaded D visit - me ? not too good as yet, but getting there.
    Hugs and thanks for your visit, Neet xx2

  6. Sending good vibes for the doc visit. Hand lettering is something I never seem to make the time for. Must work on that. Safe Travels and Creative Blessings! Kelly #38

  7. Lisa, hand lettering is my greatest weakness! Even when I try to do it, it still looks like I "tried" to do it! Ugghhh! Yours look fabulous! Have a great Wednesday! Blessings, Felicia #40

  8. Super hand lettering, thanks for visiting me BJ#10

  9. I think I would benefit from lettering practice - my handwriting is dreadful!

  10. Your lettering is great. You have obviously practiced a lot. I also like the quote. So true.
    I hope all goes well at the neurologist,
    Thanks for visiting,
    Have a great week,

  11. Hi Lisa, Hope your daughter got on ok.

    My handwriting isn't good, so I would benefit from some practice.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  12. My handwriting isn't bad but I really want to develop it into better lettering. I just can't seem to find the time.

    Spending time at the pool sounds like a lovely way to relax and it keeps the kids busy.

    Have a great week

  13. lettering is not not my thing, but I saw someone do a journal page in front of my eyes & it looked like a professional print - I was envious. Maybe i just need to practice you are doing? not me! have a blessed day donna #41

  14. I love seeing other peoples hand lettering as I am not so good at it, yours is great! Lea #50

  15. It sounds idyllic to practice your lettering by the pool! It looks like a nice pool - not overcrowded at all - I can't stand crowded swimming pools - I'd rather just have a private bath instead, LOL! Thanks for stopping by earlier! Have a lovely week! zsuzsa #28

  16. What a great idea to practice your lettering. I always feel my handwriting is never good on my projects.

  17. I hope your daughter's appointment went ok - they look as if they're having lots of fun in the swimming pool! I think your lettering is very good - I always doodle letters when I'm chatting on the phone. It really is a case of practise makes perfect - plus having a good italic pen!
    Hugs, LLJ 11 xx

  18. Well good for you, I think the temptation to do nothing but grab a coffee and wait while the children are doing their things is very great, so I admire your discipline. And I love the subject of your practice, I could definitely follow your lead!

  19. So nice to be able to "play" by the pool, isn't it? I love your lettering, it looks pretty wonderful to me already, and I will be writing down that lovely quote about wishing on a star... (thank you for that) I do hope all goes well with your daughter's appointments, And thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog earlier, Scrapbook Lynne WOYWW#39
