When I was 11 years old, I had illegible handwriting. My mom, who homeschooled me and my five siblings, decided to do something about it. She made me learn calligraphy. At first I hated it - it hurt my hands and ink from the fountain pen got all over my fingers, clothes, the table, you name it! But as I got older, I began enjoying it more and more, and now I love it! I love taking a Scripture verse or creed and figuring out the best color, font, and spacing to communicate it's truth and beauty.
This week's featured calligraphy is from Proverbs 31:8 -
They cost 5$ each, plus shipping and handling, or 8$ for the set, plus shipping and handling.
All the proceeds this month will go to helping a homeless mother and child that Pete and I know to fix their car. (The mechanic will be paid directly).
Having their car running will make it much safer for the little boy, who is eight years old.
