I don't know at which point I went from thinking that I had absolutely no creative bone in my body, to cake decorating and now calligraphy and hand lettering. I've always loved to write, but perhaps it is because I couldn't draw to save my life, I just decided that I wasn't creative.
About seven months ago, I decided to start a new Instagram account called Letter Me!, which allowed me to share my calligraphy and lettering work with the world, without annoying my existing followers on Cake Me!. Two hundred posts later, and I am incredibly humbled and blown away with having close to 30,000 followers join me. I appreciate every single "like", comment, follow and re-post, especially because after several years of love and hard work on Instagram with Cake Me!, I definitely know not to take anyone for granted. A lot of thought goes into every single post and followers are not easy to come by.
As much as I would love to continue and grow my passion in cakes, since the unexpected "success" (?) of Letter Me!, I have not been able to give my 100% to my family, and still focus on both lettering and cakes, and I realised that something had to give. It is for this reason that we have decided to stop taking orders for cakes, so that I can still give my time to my family, and to pursue my lettering dreams.
So here I am now, continuing with this blog, but from a Lettering perspective. I hope you enjoy this new journey with me.
