Looking for something different, fun, and personal this year?
I recently received my “to me from me” gift that I ordered through local Denver business Jennywear Jewelry, a handwriting charm!
I think it is fantastic and I love this unique way of capturing my daughter’s writing at this age. Maya had about a 4 week period where she drew her “Y”s with two lines on each side. I knew it wouldn’t be long before she started correcting that, so I chose that signature to capture on my charm. I used a signature from one of our watercolor tree art projects. Got close enough with my cell phone to get a big and clear image of just the name, then emailed the image to Jenny.
However, I do recommend using a name printed on regular paper. The bumpiness of the watercolor paper shows a little bit in the charm but it wasn’t something I was concerned with.
I went for the “Jumbo” size, because, why not! The Jumbo size is almost an inch by almost 2 inches.
Maya is quite proud of it. She really does not like it if I wear her name necklace under a shirt and insist that I change to a shirt where “it cuts out to see your necklace.”
Jenny was great to work with. Quick to reply, confirms before making, and I see she’s now added artwork to her collection. Looks like I may be ordering another charm!
