Before you go any further... Hi, I'm Jenni Liandu! 
I am a professional calligrapher and designer, a nerd when it comes to DIY and my obsession is teaching others how to learn the beautiful art of calligraphy. I am excited to share some more with the world, I am glad you're here!

There is no denying it, 2020 was a hard year in so many ways, but it was also very eye-opening for me. I have learned so much more about myself, my business and what is important to me. I have also. Been stretched in new ways and realised what could be possible in my business. 2020 was a curve ball and of course I didn’t manage to achieve any of my business goals for the year, but I did learn and grow. Here are some of my reflections as I look back at 2020.

An honest reflection on 2020
