Dot Your I’s

A while back a good friend of mine, Brooke Gibson, was writing a fantastic blog, WaxMama.  The blog was about local artists, products, etc for women in the Charlotte area.  Although I haven’t mentioned it yet on this blog, from time to time I will do a calligraphy project.  It may be for a friend, a wedding or just for some art to hang in my house, but it is such a lost art that I proud to be able to do.  I learned from my Dad and Grandma Grace – and think of them every time I do it!  Such a great talent to have… if you ask me!

You can click here to see what Brooke wrote about me on her blog.  And visit my website to see samples of my work.


Calligraphy has recently taken a turn and is getting very “funky”.  I love to see the new styles that people are coming up with!  You can see a lot of very cool ideas on my calligraphy board on pinterest.

There are some wonderful calligraphers out there.  Here are three that I follow:

Calligraphy by Jennifer – I love her work and LOVE following her twitter feed @prettypenstudio and facebook.  She has such great energy and wonderful inspiration!

Laura Hooper Calligraphy – she also wonderful calligraphy work and GREAT maps.  I just love them!  Click Here for an interview with Laura on the Searching for Grateful Muse blog.

Momental Designs with Kristy Rice.  I mean come on, this lady is just RIDICULOUS!  I love, love her work and always look forward to what she has done next.   The calligrapher that she used on this piece is just awesome – what a unique twist on lettering! Follow Kristy on Twitter @riceink .

Go pick up a set of calligraphy pens and learn a new art!  You will be glad you did.
