Ever since I can remember, I have loved to write. It's quite an obsession actually. My poor mother was unable to keep anything nice in her house when I was a child or it would end up with my name written all over it in multiple colors and hand writings. I made hundreds of lists, many of them the same list over and over just so I could write something on paper.

In order to feed my need to write, I've enrolled in a Copperplate Calligraphy class. I'm so excited! I've been wanting to take a calligraphy class for years and am finally finding the time to do it. I'll definitely share some samples of what I learn during the class come July. In the meantime, check out one of my favorites in the calligraphy world.

All of the following work was done by Betsey Dunlap.  I adore her work. She has such a fresh take on handwriting and I hope to one day be able to produce some equally wonderful and unique pieces!
