Yesterday, I shared my first lessons in calligraphy.
I took a class with Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls. She's one of the best in the industry and learning from her was an absolute thrill.
This is one of her personal pens that I got to try. She uses it to make smaller letters. I was hoping that by using this pen, a bit of Maybelle's talent would rub off on me. LOL!
Here is the beautiful calligraphy kit that we got to take home with us.
As a bonus, Maybelle also gave away vintage nibs from one of her travels (she's generous like that). The nibs I took home were tucked neatly in a glassine envelope.
As a quick project, I wanted to assign a small case that would hold my calligraphy tools.
Then I proceeded by making a few labels.
I thought it was a good opportunity to practice my calligraphy, too.
A special name tag for my nib organizer.
A few more labels to put inside.
And there's more room to grow my collection.
I know taking care of my tools will reward me in many ways. Don't you think it's blah to TADA!?
