August Bride Calligraphy

A friend of a friend is getting married at the end of August. Many weeks ago, she asked if I would do the calligraphy for her invitations. Having not used the skill I learned for my own wedding in over a year, I jumped at the chance to dig out my ink. The poor thing had a hold-up with her invitations and they were coming in later and later. Just two months before her wedding, I got her box of envelopes and buckled down to get to work. Over one weekend, I finished nearly 175 envelopes for her to pick up while she is visiting the area. Having sent my invitations out twelve weeks before my wedding, I really want her to get these in the mail ASAP! Good luck, Melissa! Enjoy!

After I finish an envelope, I set it out to dry. This is what part of my living room looked like during the process.

Here are a few examples of envelopes:

Can we please take a moment to enjoy Khloe's rings?

She was sharing her gold nails in support of her hubby (Lamar Odom) playing in the NBA finals with the LA Lakers. But, I'm too distracted by the diamond to focus on the nail polish!!
