Hey guys, 

I’m thinking about making more videos like this one for you. I find it soothing and relaxing to watch someone write calligraphy. Let me know if you like it and you can send me beautiful inspiring quotes to write. The writing will get fancier as I get better at it (fingers crossed)!

Hope you’ll tag along with my learning process. Please feel free to let me know where I can improve.

Thanks!

Practice makes perfect :-) or so I hope! 

Just got started with an online calligraphy class. I wanted to take this class for a while now but my Game of Thrones addiction might have pushed the decision forward. 

So far I have been tracing and doing the most basic steps to get used to the pen, the ink, the paper, etc… One thing I have learned is that calligraphy has nothing to do with hand writing. I have a decent hand writing normally but it hasn’t help and I’m told that people with sloppy hand writing can write beautiful calligraphy. So, I’ll have to wait and see… I’m hoping that I’ll soon be able to write more beautiful quotes and share them with you guys here :) Best case scenario, I’ll send you a hand written letter with the wax seal, carried by a raven…Deal? ;-)

Hope you’re having a beautiful day!

Personalized gift wrapping paper

It all started with a quite large item that I needed to wrap for a bridal shower… I refused to buy 386647123476 rolls of wrapping papers so I thought about personalizing a large piece of plain white paper to make it more meaningful. 

With a bunch of colored calligraphy pens, I started writing. My husband was watching me, he asked: “Are you sure of the spelling?” :-) Wouldn’t it be a disaster? of course I was sure!

Here is how it looked when finished

and here was me presenting my gift to be bride to be…

I used the same idea on a Christmas gift and it also turned out pretty cute!

Are you tired of all the gift wrapping ideas yet? :-)
