Calligraphy and other crafts
When my daughter mentioned handwriting onher blog (wwww.mousenotebook.blogspot.com) I remembered that many years ago I had taken classes in Calligraphy, and enjoyed it very much. So I hunted out my pens and nibs, and found some pieces I had written all that time ago. Not too bad, I thought, so I must have another go sometime!
As if I hadn't got enought to do! My sister gave me a "starter" pack for Scrapbooking last Christmas, and at last I have got to grips with paper, card and photographs. I decided to do a "Happy memories" type of book, and started with "Holidays". We always went to the same place, every year, but I have some very happy recollections of holidays there. I'm sure its better to think of the happy times, than to harp on the unhappy periods in one's life, and having started I am remembering so much more, especially as I go through old photographs.
Trouble is, I am neither very crafty or arty! Will have to pick up some hints from Sue!
