Newbie
« on: May 21, 2019, 02:12:20 PM »
Hello,

I'm about a year behind introducing myself.  I thought I'd go back to school for awhile and that took up most of my time.  During that time all I could think about was getting back to my calligraphy!  So, here I am again.

I've only been studying calligraphy for a little less than a year.  I started of with Gothic for some instant gratification, then I moved on to Copperplate using the Eleanor Winters' book, "Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy".  I really love practicing calligraphy, I find it relatively relaxing.  I'm a nurse case manager by  day and an aspiring calligrapher by night, so I  enjoy the relaxing nature of calligraphy.

I was born and raised in California and I've spent many years in sunny Florida. I know that Erica lives in Florida.  Are there any others living in Florida?

Best regards,

Lauren W

Lauren, welcome back, from another newbie.
I don't live in Florida, but I loved visiting several years back during a business conference, and I certainly understand about missing calligraphy. I dread the possibility of ever having to give it up--it's so restful and challenging at the same time.

Happy writing!  :D
