Introductions / Re: Hello calligraphy mates from the great white north :)

Thank you!!! I am so new to pointed to pen. I took a week just to 'study' and book learn. This past weekend, I've started on basic strokes. I allow myself some 'free' time at the end to get a feel for the pen's movments, but for right now, I'm focusing on the strokes that make up the letters. It's hard exerting patience. I want to dive right in! But I know that if I don't form good habits now, the end result will not be as good as it could be. :) I have to say though, I LOVE the feel of the pen and seeing the contrast in the lines. It's so meditative! :)

Hello!

Calligraphy is purely a hobby for me at this point (so is this forum stuff for that matter). I have no formal training of any sort, but I have always loved putting pen to paper, whether it was to draw or write. I enjoyed calligraphy in high school, but lost the hobby in my university/grad school days. Lately I've been drawn to calligraphy...my pending wedding in 2015 may have something to do with it. ;) My goal is to do my own invites...or at least the envelopes, depending on my progress this next year. I am really looking forward to participating in this forum. :)
