Ooooo!  I’m really not familiar with any of them, so surprise me!  I am sure they all are wonderful.  I am still at the same address.  Thanks for doing this…something to do on a cold winter day in January while my husband watched football!

Thank you for posting these. I  look forward to them everyday!  You are incredibly talented!  I am always in awe of people who can do both art and calligraphy so very well.

Thought I’d give it a try.  I did the cutout paper “quilt” a couple of years ago.  I’ve really enjoyed all of the Inktober posts!

I vote naughty.  It would make me feel taken or scammed if I was a customer.

I have a feeling if I ever get to IAMPETH I will feel the same way.  I am also from a rural area and am in the same boat.  I have taken a few classes online, but am sure it can’t compare to in-person learning.  I am just a hobbyist, but I don’t even know anybody else that enjoys calligraphy.  Hopefully one of these years I will get make it to the conference!

I did see one size of the Parallel Pens at our Meijer store earlier this summer.  They only had 2 or 3 of them hanging on a hook.  The other week I looked again for them, but they weren’t there.  Not sure if they moved them, or are no longer selling them.

Oops…that was supposed to be a question mark, not a funny face after my guess!

I have received 3 of the 5 from my list.  Shirley, Nicole, and Robert.  All very creative, unique, and well done!  Our mail doesn’t even come at the same time of the day anymore, so maybe the post office is still overwhelmed. 

I know what you mean. I’ve been wondering the same thing myself about effective practice.  I spent a long long time with Eleanor Winters Mastering Copperplate book.  I am now trying to study copperplate in the Zanarian Manual.  Eleanor Winters second book “Italic and Copperplate The Basics And Beyond” has Homework at the end of each chapter which is helpful for ideas of things to practice.  I read once that you should always be working on something...I do think I learn the most when I am “ doing” something... even little things like an envelope.

What a great idea!  I am going to do that.  I have a palette and 2 golds...which are beautiful... that I rarely use because I hate the fuss.  Thank you!

My daughter gave me some Moroccan Gold from Fox and Quill for Christmas.  It is on the expensive side, but I really like it.  It flows really well and has great hairlines.  I am not an artist and really don’t like to fuss with mixing things up which is why I’m not big with watercolors or Finetec.  I just like to open a bottle and go! The Moroccan Gold has a brown base when it isn’t mixed if that helps.  It is really pretty.
