In Australia, in order to become a Registered Nurse (RN) you are required to complete a unit on Aboriginal Health. It’s purpose is to acknowledge and recognise the cultural competence you need to perform as a nurse! In Australia there huge Heath inequities between Aboriginal and Non Aboriginal peoples. For this reason we are taught how to respect and provide care for these individuals! Very interesting unit and important to know when becoming an RN in Australia 🌏
I guess this verse has been in my head lately. I had a sketch of this (swipe to see) that I posted over a year ago! And I finally put “pen” to “paper” - or pencil to iPad - and finished it! See my last post before this for more thoughts on how God’s Word stands true forever. 💗
Lately, I kinda got caught up with my creative juices. Burn outs, perfectionism, & also stalling projects just cause “its not to its point yet”. Kinda created a LOST BEAST in me. So I made a decision.. and that is to go BACK to where I started.. & how it all began.. and just START AGAIN FROM THERE with all the knowledge I have today. Hence, it brought me back to how I used to make lettering, not these huge giant handwritten digital texts.. but I just started SMALL.. minimal.. I wanna continue that. With my video editing, same goes with that. I have been posting videos weekly.. Youtube but more on my FB page. But its something than nothing. NO MATTER HOW UGLY OR IMPERFECT ANYTHING IS.. you made it.. its ORIGINAL. Thats why I’m pretty proud cause.. you can never get better if you don’t PRACTICE YOUR CRAFT! 🙌 keep it up guys! EMBRACE IMPERFECTIONS! 🙌

Day 52/100 of #TheInkyHandAnd100Bands: @carole_king!
I heard this song on the radio today and she's on my list, so it seemed meant to be! I must've played her "Tapestry" album 200 times in high school...
As someone who is so new to lettering, when the order came in for this sign and I started working with the client, I was so nervous. I had never made something so big and I had never constructed a sign with a frame, sanded, stained, or even painted a 2X4. I wanted it to have the authentic hand-lettered and painted look, but had no idea how I was going to make it happen. After a ton of trial and error, this is the final piece. I can’t wait to make more and work on perfecting my technique 👌🏼 (if you’d like a sign of your own please send me a text or direct message)
...of the GERDS!
guys, I’m going to write this & you’re going to question whether or not I’m really an 89 year old who doesn’t miss an episode of Wheel of Fortune, but it’s true: I just don’t have the tummy of steel I once had. this week, I was LAID OUT as my stomach acids had a party - without inviting me 😢 the stomachache has been real, & to think... what put me over the edge was the (vegetarian) corn dog (& pile of mustard- I’m my father’s daughter) I had for dinner on Monday. I laugh as I type this, but it I’m serious!! 😂 I always knew corn dogs would be my demise 🤔
anyone else have a taste bigger than their stomach lining can handle? oh god, my white girl is showing 🤦🏻♀️ mild salsa gang for life ✔️
Keep it simple and classy ✨✨✨ You can pair this cake topper with a backdrop signage customized with your Last Name. Link in bio for website and contact details 🤗

🤔New name, WHO DIS?!
I changed my name & didn’t really have time to say why & honestly wasn’t even sure anyone would actually notice. But long story short, like your credit card payments, I’m consolidating! Plus, a few people did notice & weren’t sure it was actually me! I figure now is a good time to outro the old ig & intro this one. The other IGs will be closed or private. Now that’s out of the way, here’s my entry to #fridayintroductions
First off, despite my bad #RBF I’m not a serious stoic person. I like bad jokes & good ones. But I just like laughing, especially with other people. I love sharing a meal just as much as a roll-on-the-floor-can’t-breathe-laugh.
So what is the letter chelle?
It was my instagram for my lettering work. But it’s still me: a yoga teacher, who loves coffee & food, raising my daughter & working my “9-5” job. Lettering & yoga isn’t my 9-5, but wouldn’t that be great if it was? I think so too. So I’m just on a little path to get there & you’ll see it here on this one instagram page.
If lettering & yoga isn’t your job, well what do I do?
I run a residential painting business @bulmanpainting with my very significant other. We do almost everything ourselves. I don’t paint but occasionally he does. I am taking inquiries for Custom work & working on a lettering workshop. I hope to plan some mini events for yoga, yoga & lettering, among other things and those things will happen. (I made a little promise to myself to do more of what I love)
I am a mom if you couldn’t tell by the little human in the picture.
Being a mom is one of the best things that ever happened to me! But I’m thinking that one is enough. At least for now. Toddlers are very entertaining but having more than one child would be like watching a comedy, a thriller, & frozen all at once while running & doing the macarena really well. I’m sure moms with more than one can attest to this. It’s also why moms like lots of that mommy juice at night 🍷
🧘🏻♀️ Come take a yoga class from me if you are ever in Ocean Beach, CA. By the way that’s where we live!
So now you know a bit about me, tell me something about you!

Check out this incredible digital watercolor brach made by @ellila__ after she watched my @skillshare class. She brought her lovely style to this process and the result is beautiful!

😂😂 I had such a giggle when I read this! Anyone else though? Or just me? I don’t know why I always insist on having conversations from opposite sides of the house.
