from ann

here is a bonus envelope for today. it arrived several days ago and is from my penpal in canada. this is a fun variation of a cursive style where you build up the thick with additional strokes rather than using a dip pen and ink and applying pressure to make the thick stroke with one pass of the pen.

i see that i have 99 people in the list of followers. it has been fun meeting new people through the blog.

also, back on dec 27th, i posted an envelope that had fake children's writing. cathy left a comment on that envelope that she used the child-like cursive when she penned thank you notes from her dog for the gifts they received. comments like that are so much fun to read. thanks :-)


  1. Woohoo! I'm famous! Or at least my envelope is. :) Love the floral letters you posted today.

  2. i hope this inspires more people to send envelopes :-) thanks again for sending it.
