Just a quick Friday check in :) I'm FINALLY beginning to get over my cold. This one has really been a bugger! But...I look at it this way, get it over now, build up my resistance, and the winter will now be mine!!! We're expecting 8" of snow over the weekend, so come the first of the week, Gracie and I will be heading out for a good tromp through the snow :)
I received the loveliest gift this week from my sister-in-law. Her daughter is friends with Heather of Design Roots, a lovely blog BTW. My sister-in-law saw this on Heather's blog one day, thought of me, and had her do one especially for me! The calligraphy was done on a lovely piece of paper and it's about 5" x 7", so once I decide how I want to frame it, it will make a lovely piece to tuck into my studio.
As I scrolled through Heather's blog, I thought I would share a little as it might be something you too would enjoy.
She sells these wonderful little pouches. When I saw them, my first thought was, "wouldn't it be fun to make up a pouch and then add the calligraphy?!"
If you have never done any calligraphy work, you can purchase a guide kit that comes with everything you need to get started.
On the blog, you'll find lots of inspiration, and even a few little goodies, like the recipe for the Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins,
With a free printable of the recipe card that you can find HERE. What a thoughtful gift a batch of muffins with an attached recipe card would be.
Calligraphy is something I have always thought would be fun to do. So check out Heather's site. You just might find a new passion :)
