in my october love list post, i mentioned a handwriting link-up that joelle of something charming is hosting this week [and i even hand-wrote my love list, too]. of course, i've been meaning to get my post up all week, but alas, here it is, thursday, & i'm just now getting around to it. every time i move, i always think it's going to be simple keeping up with blogging & getting my posts up, but to tell you the honest truth, it's just... not. but, i've promised myself that next week will be a better week on the blogging front, as i quite miss it.
anyway, enough about that, let's talk about handwriting: for as long as i can remember, i've loved handwriting. practicing my own, seeing what others' looks like, seeing if i can mimic a certain person's style. i'll never forget: in the second grade, there was a girl whose handwriting i absolutely adored. i also adored her, & i thought if i wrote just like her, i could be just like her. she always used short pencils with very dark, soft lead, & they were always extremely sharpened. no matter what i did, i couldn't write in her handwriting, even though i used short, sharp pencils with very dark, soft lead. i'll save the moral of that story for another day, but the point of this whole spiel is this: i love handwriting.
so, here is a little sampling of mine...
i'm doing my best to get past the slightly blurry quality of these photos, but there you have it.
