Fun Mail


Every day I check the mail, and I'm usually disappointed to find an assortment of catalogues, bills and credit card offers. But I always hold out hope that there will be something fun waiting for me! 

That's why I'm so excited about participating in IAMPETH's (That's the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting) annual envelope exchange. This summer I'll be trading letters with a handful of other calligraphers around the country, and I can't wait! 

There are no rules about how the envelopes should be decorated—anything goes. It's a great way to be creative and try new things. For my first envelope, I used blue and green watercolors to create a tie-dye effect and I love the way it came out! Except for the fact that I misspelled Wisconsin. Please ignore that...
