I really love participating in the B Bar's monthly link-up. You connect with inspiring bloggers and get to discuss great topics (past posts - what I couldn't live without and summer essentials.) I got to this month's topic, however, and was stumped:
What are your hidden talents?
Well, crap. I put off writing this for a while and it caused a serious wallow one night of "I don't think I haaaaaave aaaaanny!". But surely something would come to me. Maybe I was thinking too grand?! Like in our YouTube day and age surely we are all closet/shower singers ready to be the next big thing (which, by the way, have you read about the new lead singer for Journey?!).
I continued to think about it. I play the piano. I called it a day after Grade 8.
I can carry a tune. But usually only sing with friends/sister and it's nothing groundbreaking.
I still needed to go smaller - quirky maybe?! But I can't do any celebrity impressions. Though I can do the Elvis lip.
But then, I caaaan do some hand-lettering. Not exactly calligraphy style, as I like to do my own thing with it. I like to make words pretty. Signs are exciting. Nothing gets me more than a labelled charcuterie board. In fact, I just completed the save-the-dates and invitation lettering for our wedding in my calligraphy-sudo writing. I didn't hate the process and I can say that I love the final result!
So, a hidden talent? My Gran thinks so. She brings her guest book each time she sees me so that I can write the next header. You know - "Christmas, 2015", "Spring Luncheon", etc. So if Gran thinks so I'm going to take it!
Be sure to check out the hidden talents of these ladies!
