I flunked handwritting all through school. My mom bought me a calligraphy set in junior high to try to help my handwritting. I enjoyed it & I don't know why I stopped doing it. I'm glad I picked it back up again. I left a job because I was moving and my boss said "well miss you, morgan, but we won't miss your handwritting." We had appointment books that everyone wrote in. The funniest thing was a year later I went back to work there during the summer & there was a girl with handwritting just like mine. It was creepy how similar it was.

Here is one a scraweled out real fast to share. I don't want to put up an actual address so I made this one on an envelope that was messed up. The big pile are the ones a friend did last night.

It took me a couple tries to get that D right. Normally I practice a letter like that before I write on the envelope. Don't worry I'm not scratching out on the real ones. I'm not that tacky.

It's funny. you were asking for a pic as I was posting it. I know the rules around here :)

I had a book when I was younger that showed arrows so you knew what direction to start in. I'm just looking at this website copying the look of each letter. I know it's nothing close to pro calligraphy, but it's better than my chicken scratch.

I took a calligraphy class just so I could do my invites :) Now I use it for doing birthday cards, christmas cards, and sometimes bills just so I can practice. I also like the size 2 pen much better...
