Thankful Thursday | Free Wallpapers


"Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world." — Miyamoto Musashi

I get stuck in my own head a lot of times worrying about this or that but when it really comes down to it, thinking of others, doing good, and being in community is what brings me joy.

I'm so grateful to be able to share the art of brush calligraphy with others and spread the joy of creating in the form of workshops, as well as creating art for others. 

Although my idea of art may be rather simple and minimalistic, it's the heart behind it that matters. A thoughtfully captured photo, overlayed with a hand-lettered word or phrase is enough to be considered art to me and that's what I aim to share.

In this season of thanksgiving, I just want to take a moment to thank you for taking the time and effort to follow and support my creative journey. It means more than words can say! 

So, as a token of my appreciation, I've created a few new freebies to share - three wallpapers inspired by the colors of fall.

Please take a moment to subscribe to my monthly newsletter so we can stay connected and you'll receive access to all three of these wallpapers and future goodies straight into your inbox. Thank you!

Giving Thanks

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever.
— Psalm 107:1

I can hardly believe it's been almost three weeks since I landed back on US soil. It still feels like a dream that I was in Taiwan for a year, and it's even more surreal that I'm back in New York.

David and I are currently apartment hunting and living out of our suitcases so I feel a bit out of sorts. It's Thanksgiving, and I don't have access to my own kitchen or tools, which means no turkey thawing in the fridge or some baked good in the oven. We'll actually be going out to a restaurant to celebrate with family - something new and different. 

I'm not going to try and stuff this one post with everything that I'm grateful for - I pray that thankfulness is something that I can incorporate more into my daily life. But I will say that even though we don't have a place to call our own yet, I am thankful to have a roof over my head. I'm thankful for new friends and connections since I've been back - connections that I would not have made if I did not have my experience in Taiwan.  Friends. Family. You. Yes, you - the handful of you that take the time to read my ramblings. Thank you. 

Wishing you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving!
