Katerina - Thanks!  Good to hear, much appreciated!

I saved all the letters and will go back and look for yours.  I know I loved them all!

All the best!

I did the love letter exhange I think last year?!   I never even knew if anyone received my "love letter."  I'm not on the forum often enough, but would love to know if my love letters made it.   I shared my love letter treasures with a picture after I got them.  It's nice to share as we put so much thought and effort into these:)


Here are the beautiful Love Letters I received! I will cherish them forever!

Thanks to all!

Jenny Waltemath

Sooo happy to get my first letter.  When I get them all I will post pics!  Jenny

I too have a picture of my letters similar to the one above at the post office!  Can hardly wait to be the recipient of my fellow calligrapher's handiwork!!  Love:)  Jenny

In desperation I just looked up this forum that I was so enthusiastic about when I first stumbled upon it - had almost forgotten about!  Thank goodness I came back to what is so important to me; and isn't that what it's all about.  There will always be housework - it's winter and sometimes more difficult to get motivated as your stuck indoors more of the time.  And for goodness sakes you're taking care of how many kids!!??  Sometimes "Groupon" has great deals on housekeepers.  I actually used to be my own cleaning business many years ago for a short time.  You might find a housekeeper that really loves to clean so you're being supported and you're helping to support someone else.  Just another perspective!:)

As my dishwasher has been broken for 3 weeks and my hands are cracked and raw from washing dishes for 3 people in our house:)

Best of luck!

What you give to others freely, generously and without strings will always be returned 100 fold.  Thank YOU for sharing freely, generously and without strings!!!!  YOU are inspiring me to teach!!!  Thank YOU!!!  Jenny

Seriously - my eyes just welled up with tears when I saw your work!  You have such a great style and flair - such liveliness; LOVE IT:)  And might also be the fact that I'm reminiscing about my class with Jake.  He is from a different time:) and not hard to look at either;)

Keep posting:)!!!!

I was just thinking today how I feel like a "hack" and it's just a matter of time before someone finds out:)  I am always taking short cuts - I know I'm good when I do all the "right" things, but many times when I sit down to practice I end up doing my own freestyle writing.  I think partly because I have a fear that I won't ever be as good as I want?

Anyway - thanks I feel better now!

Awesome!!!  If I could I would go to ALL the workshops, conferences and retreats!

I don't know if I'll ever top the experience I had at my one and only conference at The Summit in Colorado Springs last year!!

Keep up the pictures so we can vicariously enjoy your experience:)))))

This might just get me back to drinking coffee (I quit recently)!  I looked up the link for the online spencerian class, but didn't see a link to sign up?

Also - Spencerian Saga is in Ohio in October!  Oh, just a wedding or two right now would do to foot the bill!:)


You're not too far away from being a Master yourself!
