I have always had a love for beautifully handwritten things. I always choose handwritten over typed when I can. I love the mixing of script and block, all done by a pen. I love when letters have dramatic flourishes. I love receive wedding invitations in the mail, with a calligraphy-ed address. It has been a dream to start taking lessons and have the materials and information to start doing these things myself! I would love to be able to use these skills in some way outside of being a nurse 🙂 but I have to practice!
I love this so much, I can’t even begin to say. I write the names of the states over and over – have to be able to address envelopes somehow! I write the names of the SEC schools, and their colors and mascots. I write my friends’ names, I write my family’s names, I write the alphabet. I write, I write, I write. Practice practice practice.
There is another calligraphy class coming up that I hope to attend. I hope it works out that I get to take it. Maybe once my work schedule gets rolling I’ll get the opportunity to take lessons!
