My cards arrived from Minted
and I couldn’t be happier! I recently picked up a cheap little pen and ink set with ideas of writing all the addresses on my envelopes and I was thinking it was a little crazy and I probably wouldn’t be able to do it…until I actually played around the with quill and became totally obsessed. It was before my cards arrived so I amused myself one evening practicing by writing a pretend Christmas card list (yeah, that’s totally normal right?) I love writing with this little quill pen so much that I told Tom I was going to pack it and the pot of ink in my purse and pull it out whenever I had to sign receipts. Of course I joke, but normally I just don’t enjoy the act of writing, but something about the quill forces me to write slower? I don’t know what it is, but I love it.
Obviously I am no calligrapher, but it’s very pleasing indeed and after addressing over 25 envelopes today with to and from addresses, I am not burnt out on it either, I just want to write more.
Ok so I wanted to share with you my Santa Claus photo booth pictures
. You can print it out on photo paper (I had mine done at Staples) and cut them into strips to tuck into cards, use as a holiday bookmark, etc.
