I realized two things as a kid: I took a lot of pride in my handwriting, and I loved making homemade cards for my family. When I discovered calligraphy, I knew that it was something I wanted to learn and pursue. Learning this skill led me back to making cards as an adult, and now I never buy cards! There’s something about sending a homemade and handwritten card - I love creating them and seeing other’s faces when opening them. That’s the best part.
