I really shouldn’t feel guilty. After all, I was having some big life events: a “totaled” car, near loss of my nonagenarian mom, and my own double hernia surgery (followed by nasty post-op UTIs and two re-injured cervical disks. (Thank you, anesthesiologist!) Good times.
So, yeah, I have excuses. Nonetheless, dear readers, you’ve been in my thoughts. Thanks to Dulce R, a new customer and fan.
I often demo my Morph-O-Scopes at the Ventures store in Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market. Dulce blew me away recently with her exquisite hand-printing on my sign-up sheet. It reminded me I had been collecting videos and images of fine motor and gross motor calligraphy – in all media – for educators who, like me, believe in the benefits of penmanship training. A trending subject, believe it or not.
So, from my personal file “Calligraphy – Lost and Found” – brilliant examples! Enjoy! Share!
