I often wished I could do calligraphy. My Mom can, although she doesn't use if often. It is so beautiful. A computer font just isn't the same.

  1. I agree with you, it is beautiful. When my class were learning it in school I was told I couldn't learn it as I'm left handed. I don't know if that was just the art teacher being lazy or if lefties really can't do it!

  2. I love calligraphy, too! Thank you for the post, you've made me want to go and check my calligraphy set and see if any of my ink is still good.

    My mom is a lefty and she can do it, too (although she was taught to write by her parents, so she sort of curls her hand around her writing and drags her hand along the paper in front of the words vs across the words like most leftys).
