Introductions
« on: July 31, 2015, 06:25:11 PM »
Hi, I'm Joan from Houston, Texas. I've always loved calligraphy, but have just done the faux version until a couple of months ago, when my daughter got engaged and I took my first class. Now, my favorite part of my day is when I sit down to practice. I really love pointed pen, and look forward to expanding my alphabet repertoire. I'm sure this forum will be a huge inspiration!

Welcome to the forum.  I understand what you mean when say it's your favorite part of the day.  I find it to be incredibly relaxing and challenging at the same time.

Welcome to FF! And i agree, calligraphy practice is the best part of my day, too!
I like to write words, make stamps, and wrap gifts.
