simply pretty {neither snow}

I was just working on a valentine's inspired event board and pursuing some of my favorite inspirational blogs when I came across the stunning calligraphy of neither snow over at 100 layer cake. As I have very childish penmanship I stop in complete awe at stylishly inked paper like theirs. Not to mention the fact that I am always a sucker for well styled photos.




And isn't the combination of fonts lovely?

And the sad thing is that hand written correspondence is almost a dying art. I just recently started writing post cards again when traveling. And friends are thanking me to the left and the right - they are so thankful to receive cards with real (and foreign) stamps on! Your lovely post is a great reminder. xx Monika

I have been in love with calligraphy since I was a kid. I got my first "how-to" book" when I was about 8.. Though I have practiced, I have never been able to get it right. It's HARD!! A true talent. Love your post... xxj

Isn't it lovely? I fell in love with Neither Snow a few months back when I featured it on an event board- http://wp.me/pt4zb-GL

She has such an incredible eye for design, & the penmanship skills to make her unique vision come to life. Now if I could only get my hands on some stamps that pretty!

the combo of fonts definitely makes these even more interesting. i definitely need to work on my penmanship.

Michelle said...

Oohhhh, yes, that black one, that horse stamp, makes my heart go pitter patter

I literally just started a continuing education calligraphy course this week and I already love it. My teacher is awesome- I'll have to print these out to show her more of what I want to learn! So gorgeous.

So, I keep coming back to this post and it's official: I'm going to enrol in some calligraphy classes very soon. {I love the look of the dual fonts}.
