This month’s calligraphy exchange was the letter ‘T’. I was very late getting it together, so reworded an anonymous quote to go with it, and then had to make envelopes to the unusual size. They went in yesterday’s mail.

The ‘T’ Exchange

Received this envelope from Audrey K in Tampa, Florida. I thought it colorful and cheering. Here in Northern, Michigan, everyone needs cheer. Yesterday sleeting rain changing to ice… today snow.

One of the things I enjoy doing is calligraphy, so I joined the Yahoo group ‘Calligraphy Exchange’ and participate in envelope exchanges. This helps keep me in practice. Receiving the envelopes is a treat, also. Between two to five members exchange envelopes they have designed and lettered.

Last year I took part in a year of letters with A, of course, assigned to January. During the year I forgot to get copies of H, I, and L. This exchange continues through 2013 and I have already sent out M and N. Each letter is sent on a 4″ square of paper inserted in a decorated and hand letter envelope. Looking back I can see E and J were both the same Italic style. Oops!

Even my local post office employees are enjoying the exchanges I participate in. Some of the envelopes have been absolutely spectacular.
