365 LLC Days 327 - 329: Of List Of Little Pleasures, Song Inspired Coords, & Videos Of Calligraphy

November 23, 2018

Like many, I have a laundry list of little pleasures I love and figured it'd be nice to list them in my little book. I don't know if anyone else does this sort of thing very often but I'm finding I do find it one of my little pleasures.

I've been listening to all sorts of different songs today trying to figure out what I'd like to coord around. From soundtracks and classical music to new age and metal, there really isn't anything that holds me back when it comes to music, everything is just a variation of coord progressions and, often times, witty wording that makes people really like a song. The song I eventually went with was Princess from Versailles, I thought it really gave off that flowery feel while still feeling a bit powerful and this is what I came up with.

As someone who tries to work on her calligraphy fairly often this is a nice video for me to check out different styles of penmanship. I think that it's a nice skill to have, if anything it's just pretty to look at if the writer is skilled. I also found it funny that this was a prompt after using my quill pen (terribly) and writing out a few things in my little book.


The last few days have been a lot of sewing and work but, very thankfully, we've been able to enjoy the little things all this weekend.

I always tend to enjoy making lists of things and this past year I've really gotten back into writing them out in a book. I used to kind of scrapbook things with it, making doors and cut away frames, even embroidering into fabric swatches I'd add into pages. This is really making me want to get back into it.

One of the things I watched about calligraphy was that I should try a different method to get used to vertical and horizontal strokes. There are a ton of really good tutorials for calligraphy writing on youtube and many are very soothing to watch.

I think now is a good time to put back my tea things today, I was able to heat up a delicious oatmeal and maple scone I had made a few days ago and it hit the spot. Cheers! XOXO
