Hello from Central Florida!
« on: July 24, 2019, 02:39:20 PM »
Hi there!

First of all, thanks Erica for helping me to set up my account!

Originally I am from Austria but we moved to Florida, near Orlando last year. Currently I have a lot of spare time so I try my best to be as creative as possible. My handwriting sucks but I love beautiful calligraphy so a few months ago I started practicing Spencerian penmanship. Although it was fun I lost track of my practice and eventually switched to other projects. Having a lot of interests sounds fun unless you really need to practise and stick to something.

I really want to start practising again (not sure about Spencerian though, Copperplate is flirting with me...) and I hope that being active in this forum gives me enough inspiration for my own writing and also holds me accountable in case I am not practising regularly ;)

Looking forward to get inspired and see your work, have a great day!

HI @Martina
Sorry for the late reply as I was on vacation. My handwriting is also terrible but it is altogether different than my calligraphy!

Are you going to join the Orlando guild? They have great workshops and are very nice people. I sometimes go over the east coast to take classes with them (or teach).

Welcome to Flourish!

Welcome to the forum, Martina!  I love Austria! 

My handwriting is abysmal. Funny how that works, isn't it? 

Good with your practice.  You know where to come if you get stuck. :)

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Doing a workshop at the Orlando guild sounds like fun, I might do that! Right now I try to stick to a practicing routine and just start doing something every day  ::)
