So...I'm addressing my Halloween Exchange envelopes. What the heck! I have misspelled my OWN name so many times it's ridiculous....Good Grief!

p.s. Coffee and Calligraphy do not mix!

Please tell me I am not the only one that has "Good Grief Moments" so tell me yours.

Tools & Supplies / Colored paper recommendations, please
« on: September 19, 2016, 10:30:29 PM »
I am still in the "newbie" stage and after my regular practice I allow myself to "play" (with different colors of ink, papers and other things). I plan on getting quality colored paper for when I feel I am ready to advance and invest in that.  In the mean time, I just want to get some paper in different colors to play around with and practice on. I don't have access to anything other than Hobby Lobby or Michael's.  Could anyone recommend a brand, type or weight of colored paper that would be "decent" to use for pointed pen? 

Thank you so much in advance!

Technical Support & Feedback / Where are my "likes"?
« on: September 16, 2016, 10:46:36 PM »
Apologies in advance ....but, when I hit the "like" button where is my list of likes or how do I find all the likes I have liked?

(Good grief...I have said like, like 6 times...LOL) :o

Thank You!

Open Flourish | General Discussion / Looking for a quote/motto...
« on: September 13, 2016, 12:14:03 PM »
Hi! (newbie here)... I am looking for a calligraphy quote to use as my "motto".  I would like to have the quote be specifically dedicated to calligraphy as oppose to a general quote.  It could be made up by you or by anyone else. If possible,  could you please include the author so I may give credit for the quote.

Thank you so very much!
