Do You Know Calligraphy?

I just came across these exquisite Lace and Foxes Valentines ($10) by Hello Handmade Paperie, who will inscribe your love note in calligraphy and mail off your card for you. Although I think my chicken scratch does have a certain je ne sais quoi — what's not to love? — the card got me to thinking that calligraphy is a lost art these days. It's sad to see the stunning script fall by the wayside.

My grandfather does calligraphy on the side. He makes really cute business cards, with a personal touch!

My grandpa tried to teach me. I wish I had paid more attention.

I've been meaning to learn for years. It just keeps getting put on the back burner.

I have calligraphy pens but I don't really know calligraphy. I use them to write either in my paper journal or to just make my cards look a little more old-fashioned. I mainly write in cursive and calligraphy pens complement my writing style.

Yep. I learned it when I was a teenager... I used to love getting new nibs and inks! :)

I wish I could. My cousin does beautiful calligraphy. She addressed all of our wedding invitations for us as a wedding gift which was really a win all the way around.
