Today I'll also likely pick up a calligraphy pen and do a little bit of doodling following the beginner's calligraphy class I took yesterday thanks to The Scarlet & Gold shop. SO FUN! Scarlet & Gold a small business based out of Auburn, Alabama and sell all kinds of pretty things that I basically want to decorate my whole house with. I talked about them briefly last summer when I first purchased one of their notebooks and some placemats!
I follow them on Instagram and noticed a few weeks ago that they were gearing up to offer a free calligraphy class. I've never had an interest in calligraphy but have a huge interest in sending snail mail, so I figured trying my hand at it could be a fun way to spend the afternoon. Hadley and I ran to Michael's yesterday afternoon to pick up a beginners kit, and I was set up with my materials and laptop at 4 o'clock for the live stream!
The intro class lasted about 40 minutes, but it flew by and felt like five. I'm no where good at it, but sitting on the couch practicing last night was really relaxing and a fun way to wind down before bed.
If you're interested in taking this free beginner's course, Scarlet & Gold will be offering one more course tomorrow night! It's a little late to order the materials online, but you can pick them up at any craft supply store. Here's the link for more info!
I hope you have a great Monday! See ya later this week.
Note: This post is in no way sponsored by Scarlet & Gold. I genuinely loved their class and their business in general! I think you will too!
