Hi Melody and welcome to the forum! What type of calligraphy are you learning, if you don't mind me asking?

Hello Sue and Welcome to the forum!

How are you practicing your flourishing? Do you have a book to guide you or are you playing around with placement and seeing what works? I'm kind of in the same spot as you; I'm thinking about getting the Ornate Pictorial Calligraphy book. And probably should practice more  ::)

Anyway, glad you are with us and best of luck on your calligraphy journey :)

Hi and welcome Aituaje. I'm am excited for you to get started in calligraphy! It can be challenging, but it's also fun to see yourself improve as you practice.  This is a very friendly and helpful community, so don't be afraid to ask for help. Good luck and see you around!

@Jennifer M  Those coastal cities above Miami are beautiful. We love driving up Hwy 1 and A1A when we get a chance. My brother is in Tampa, so we make trips down a couple of times a year (ATL, 6 hour drive), and sometimes do a detour / scenic route home. Yes, we like driving.
I'm glad you found some calligraphy groups out your way!

Hi Jennifer,

Welcome to the forum. Your calligraphy on IG is absolutely lovely, and I can't wait to see more of your work!
My family hasn't quite made it down to the Keys, but it's on our To Visit list. Miami is about as far south as we've made it.
Glad you are here with us!

The new look is fantastic, Erica. I am enjoying how clean, organized and the overall feel of the home page is. FAQ page is so helpful, and definitely will be easier to refer to. Thank you so much for the update and your hard work!

Just realized the postage stamps were social media links!! What a neat idea ❤️❤️❤️
