Welcome Ashley,
There is an entire board dedicated to lefties so be sure to check that out! Lots of good tips. Also, we have some good tutorials for Copperplate. I highly recommend anyone serious about learning Engrosser’s Script / Copperplate check out Nina Tran @anintran on Instagram and if possible, take a workshop from her.
Have fun!  :D

Open/Active Exchanges / Re: Holiday | New Year Exchange Sign Ups are Now CLOSED!

Hello list 3.
Due to USPS Covid delays and a deluge of local election related mail, the deliveries of mail here in Atlanta have been erratic and in some cases substantially delayed. I mailed all the list 3 members an envelope on November 30 or Dec. 1, 2020, and have received just 4 of 8. The one to myself took eight days to arrive, and it never even left the city. I just received a card from someone mailed Dec 14--so 4 weeks for delivery. If anyone has not received an envelope from me, let me know and I'll send another, as the first is probably lost. Thanks.

Introductions / Hello from North Carolina!
« Last post by AshleyBaxterCurry on January 12, 2021, 02:40:43 PM »
My name is Ashley, and I was born, raised, and currently reside in North Carolina.  I received my undergraduate degree in Economics and Political Science in 2003 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tar Heels!).  I then obtained my J.D. from Campbell University's Norman A. Wiggins School of Law, and started practicing law in 2009.  I currently practice solely in the field of consumer bankruptcy.  I am married, and my husband and I have an almost 5-year-old daughter. 

I have been obsessed with handwriting ever since I was little, so it was only natural that I gravitated toward calligraphy.  I just began learning calligraphy in September, 2020, and I am in the midst of courses with Becca Courtice of The Happy Ever Crafter, learning modern calligraphy with both pointed pen and brush pens.  For my next steps, I want to become proficient in copperplate, and love to ultimately earn a little cash on the side addressing wedding envelopes.  Fun fact:  I am left-handed! 

I look forward to learning a multitude of information from this forum, and hope to provide meaningful contributions!

Just signed up!
Thanks so much for organising, @Erica McPhee  :)

This will be my first exchange in years and I can’t say just how much I’ve missed taking part of these.

Cheers,
Keysa

2. Beacon of Light – Lighthouses, sunsets, whatever brings bright light to a weary world.
