This weekend we were SNOWED IN and I loved it! We got a little over a foot of snow here and we have not had that much snow since I can remember and I'm 28!
Well with not a lot to do, I wrapped Christmas gifts, watched Christmas movies and practiced doing calligraphy. I purchased a very nice calligraphy set in the beginning of our engagement because I have always wanted to learn but just kind of forgot about it. I practiced for about an hour and my end results shocked me!! I did better than I thought! I chose not to trace at anytime, all of my practice was freehand. I think it makes it easier and you can put your own twist on it.
My invites will be mailed in chocolate brown envelopes and finding white ink was kind of a challenge but I finally found some at a painters store. Since I am only sending out 60 invites I think this may be an easier DIY task than I first thought and I am going to be doing a little at a time instead of attempting to do them all at once.
