    I would just thicken the letters a bit for legibility purposes, but otherwise I think it looks great, as a fellow DIYer.

    @MrsM914:  I’m not a fan of the whole burlap trend to be honest but as for the whimsical pretty script you definitely nailed it. Thumbs up!

    I think it would look better the second time around. This one looks like a rough draft. I don’t think you need stencils, just one that looks cleaner.

    Looks like a good start, but I would darken/thicken the script. It’s hard to see. But I like the style.

    It looks ok but not awesome, in my opinion.  Sorry :/

    I think you could make it like this but WAY better by copying the font “bombshell”.  I have terrible handwriting and craftiness, but I made some kickass signs by just freehand copying it… maybe worth trying?  Google image search “bombshell font”, or follow the crazy long link below.,or.r_qf.&fp=1dd7855e844696d7&hl=en&q=bombshell+font&rls=org.mozilla:en-US%3Aofficial&sa=1&tbm=isch&um=1&facrc=_&imgdii=_&

    @MrsM914:  I think if you go over the letters again so they are bolder, it will be perfect.

    I think it looks good but it just needs to be a darker font/bolder so that it’s easier to read.  I think the script looks good, it’s just a little harder to read.

    i like it. i would definitely darken the letters and make them a little thicker but i know since its your first draft i’m sure it’ll look great when you are finished. i think your free hand looks pretty good to me!

    Love if but can you make the lettering black? I’m a fan of hand drawn type 🙂

    Oh I’m a total type/design snob so I don’t like everything, that’s for sure.

    Eh. I’d try to go over the letters the H and B especially where it should be curved is pointy / stiff
