I finally signed up for a calligraphy class I've been wanting to take.
I took a course at a college nearby years ago
and wanted a refresher class.
I heard from a friend, Paper Tales had a class.
So, I signed up our daughter, Carly and her friend, Leeanne to go with me.
It was a birthday present for Leeanne!
There's something about using a pen and ink,
I love it!!
Lots of fun girls in the class.
Carly enjoyed learning something new.
April Joy taught the class.
If you haven't taken a calligraphy class,
she's the best teacher!
It's always fun learning a new technique.
April gave us practice sheets and went over how to hold your pen and write on a slant.
Practice is the Key!!
I found some old pens and colored ink that I had from the college calligraphy class.
Can't wait to try more calligraphy!

Tuesday was my birthday and Stan made me a wonderful dinner.
He gave me the best present.
We're going to England to visit
our daughter, Katie and her boyfriend, Harry.
Carly and Justin are going too!
As you can see by the photo, I haven't been there since 1972.
I'm so excited!
We are also going to Paris for 3 days.
What a wonderful birthday present.
I'm beyond thrilled!
We're still going to have the Simple & Sweet Party next week.
Hopefully with some photos of our trip.
So hope you can join us!!
