    I Love to Write In Calligraphy

    I also love to ink, skratch, and paint. Tipping is fun too. The most beautiful work though is transcribing. Not many can do it well or right!

    A Beautiful Style of Writing

    I love the way it curves and curls everywhere. Its kind of amazing to see how handwriting has changed throughtout the centuries and decades. Like in the 1900s people used Calligraphy and now peoples' handwriting are bubbly, pure scribbles, or just hard to read.
