Handwriting Skills

As many of you know, I've taken the time during this wedding planning process to really work on my handwriting. After all, I refused to pay to have someone write the addresses for me (although that really would have been SO much easier), and I couldn't have my invitations mailed lookin all sloppy. 

I've never considered myself to have nice handwriting; thanks to Joelle at Something Charming, I was inspired by her fake calligraphy tutorial and began practicing. My hard work paid off, because I received many compliments on my handwriting on the invitations (or maybe they were being nice...whatever). So, that's why I decided to link up this week with Something Charming, for her Write it Down and Link it Up post. It's the perfect opportunity to display my new handwriting. Of course, there's always room for improvement, but I am quite pleased with how much better my handwriting looks these days. I will be taking calligraphy orders immediately. 

Part of the challenge was to write our favorite quote. This is not necessarily my favorite quote of all time, but it's certainly one of my current favorites.


  1. oh I love your calligraphy and the fun colors you used!

    1. Thank you! I feel like my calligraphy looks way better than my regular handwriting.
