When Trick-or-Treaters ring my bell on Halloween, rather than give them more candy, I like to give them a different type of TREAT! A hand made coloring book (Assuming that they are under the age of 10!)

Fold pages in half and staple down the spine. Several blank pages at the end of the book provide space for the trick-or-treaters to create their own drawings.

OHHHH That is a hand that I pretty much made up. It is kind of a cross between Italic and Bookhand. I do a lot of calligraphy for I
invitations, envelopes and place cards etc. This hand is very fast and easy for me to do.
