I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this, but I’ve always been a big lover of handwriting. I like messing with mine, changing it and making it different for different occasions. I even have a tattoo that is in my own handwriting. Because of that, I thought it would be easy for me to learn calligraphy to address our wedding invitations. Let me tell you, the strokes of the writing were one thing. I’m still not great at remembering to pick my pen up after every letter, but I’m working on it. It was the ink that I was worried about, though. I didn’t want to spill at work. Anyway, this is what I’m getting at: H’s sister and her fiancé asked me to address their wedding invitations. And I’ve been loving it, absolutely loving it.
I’m excited to practice with the actually calligraphy pen some more, because H really wants me to use the real ink for our own invitations. So, we’ll see about that. But I really like this, and would be okay with a pen like this addressing ours, as well.
What do you think?
