I took this calligraphy class this past Sunday, and I discovered that I'm in now in love with letters and numbers. I'll be the first to admit that I have terrible handwriting. I guess I don't really try to write well, but regardless, even when I do try, it's not very pretty.
Here are some samples of my first attempts at it.
We also practiced writing the names of people in the class. I am seriously considering changing my name to Tiffany ... look how pretty it looks!
The numbers are probably my favorite thing to write. I'm not sure why exactly I like them, I'm not very good at them. They're just fun to make.
To be honest, it is my goal to personally hand address in beautiful calligraphy the invitations for my wedding. Every day this week, I have come home and practiced a little. I don't think I've gotten any better, but I am starting to learn how the pen works and I'm getting used to the idea of thin strokes up, heavy strokes down. I'm sure it will take time and lots of practice before I am able to write beautifully. I guess it's a good thing that M and I wont be getting married for at least a couple of years!
