Happy mail day!
« on: May 17, 2014, 03:17:59 PM »
The mail was just delivered, and I'm so excited! I've been trying to practice Spencerian with a regular fountain pen and the Spencerian Theory & Copybooks. I'm seeing improvement, and practicing with what I have is better than nothing, but really not satisfying at all.

As of today I have my new Peerless oblique holder, 5 Nikko G nibs and for fun, the Ames Compendium. I bought ink locally a few weeks ago, and can't wait to get some ink on a new nib. When I'm able to see some noticeable improvement I plan to buy a good holder. I quit my job about 3 years ago and have time to practice, so I hope to devote some quality time to work on Spencerian every day.

Happy!!!


Denise
