Show me your festive flourishes! 😊
« on: November 27, 2020, 02:48:54 PM »
Hello there!  Are you feeling Christmassy yet? 🌲🌲🌲 I would love to see if youíve been doing any seasonal calligraphy.  Iíve been sending out Holiday cards to various different care homes across the UK via a FB group I have joined.  Itís a great way to practice addressing envelopes and hopefully the recipient is pleased to receive some pretty mail.  Today I have been making pretty snowflake stars.  I hope youíll share some pics of your Christmas calligraphy 😊

Well, I though calligraphy might cure my aversion to Christmas and gave it a try.

Very nice indeed @Trazo ~ that Christmas thang has a habit of creeping up on you!  ;D ;D  Have you signed up for the holiday exchange?  :)

Thank you @Nikki I haven't signed up, as I am not ready yet for such a big task. I still have to practice a lot. Maybe next year.
