A Blessing for my Niece

I’ll always remember the phone call—my brother-in-law and sister-in-law telling us they were expecting their first baby! Our whole family is waiting for baby Eleanor Eisley Akery to arrive. In the meantime, my super talented sister-in-law Natasha asked me to write out the original blessing she created.  I love how her words are like a warm hug for her daughter.  I am so honored to know my handwriting will be one of the things surrounding little Ellie in her room!ellieakeborder

You can check out Natasha’s beautiful stories on the One for One Thousand Blog. One talented mom-to-be, someone I love and admire.

I used Speedball Calligraphy ink in Indigo Blue because Ellie’s room is a mix of blues, greens, and browns, and wrote on Canson watercolor paper because it is acid free, and nice and thick for framing.
