calligraphy goodness

Recently I have been reflecting over the past 2 years and planning for the next (My business anniversary came and went in this house full of newborn joy).  Excited to post more soon.  Ironically, I stumbled across this today not only is it extremely inspiring, but it pretty much sums up my plan.  Oh Ira.  You always know just what to say.

Until I get all the details down in a clear and cohesive post, I thought I would share some calligraphy goodness!   I have a new appreciation for this art as I just finished up a class at my local art center.

such beauty and skill required for even the simplest rendition.

If you are interested in trying, this online class looks awesome and is something I will probably do in the near future to brush up and get reinvigorated, when I find my practicing lacking.  Or join a local class to meet some other script junkies in your area.

And you could always take the easy way and font it…

here are my favorite freebies 1. 2. 3.

there is a reason why these will cost you some moola.

Enjoy!
