{{My Attempt @ Calligraphy...Thoughts}}

>> Monday, December 21, 2009

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.

Looks great. You are a trooper for doing all the envelopes in calligraphy!

It looks awesome Jeana ! I did all the calligraphy for my wedding - from the envelopes to the placement cards - I did it all! I have always been told that I have "pretty hand writting" so I took full advantage of that and did it myself as opposed to paying someone. Good luck with everything :)

Girl, you did an awesome job! I love calligraphy! I'll be taking a calligraphy class that starts the end of January that I'm really looking forward to!

You are my diy hero! Thank you for the insight. Your calligraphy looks great! Where do you buy a diy kit? This is one thing I wouldn't mind tackling.

Wow, I wish I could do that. It would look so pretty on my mettalic white envelopes.

WOW your calligraphy looks amazing! That is definitely something that I want to learn too. It just adds a little something extra to the envelopes. I love them!

p.s. I'm glad you were able to get on Penga's list for a line-art drawing. Isn't she the sweetest? :)
