Although penmanship has never been a strength of mine, I'm having fun playing around with handwriting styles and my new Parker Urban fountain pen, a post-Christmas gift from my husband. The calendar page is from a desk calendar he found at an antique mall. Since 1960 was a leap year, too, it seems appropriate.
I've been working on a post about my efforts with Spencerian Business Script, shown above, and what led me to this uncharacteristic new interest. However, I've been thoroughly enjoying time with family, friends, and books these past two weeks, so it's not quite ready. I very much doubt that pencasting is anywhere in my near future, but I'm finding that as I get older, I'm more open to trying things that don't come easily to me.
