I’m all about modern calligraphy if you couldn’t tell! I love everything about it, creating lettering pieces using a traditional tool with a modern flair brings me so much joy. I also have seen this becoming more and more trendy which is great because I think anything that is creative and done by hand is a good thing to be trendy! Personally, I incorporate modern calligraphy into my everyday life in so many ways, from addressing regular snail mail with my pointed pen to plenty of lettering pieces hanging in my home featuring calligraphy work. Since the holidays are all about joy I wanted to share these ways to bring modern calligraphy into your holiday season!

Snail mail is my favorite thing especially as a stationery lover! So why not try out your hand at some modern calligraphy or fauxligraphy this holiday season.
