It is time to get this BLOG back on track . . . CALLIGRAPHY! 
Letters! Words! Poetry! Envelopes!

So, my New Year's resolution is to divide up my interests into 2 blogs. Long Village Lettering is a studio for calligraphy. I am scribe wanting to help brides, MOB, grooms, clients, corporate clients and any one in need of a good impression when they put it in writing!

Merry Christmas!
