I spent $2 at Micheals today. But I'm blaming it on Barbara Jay. You see, she twisted my arm behind my back and held me face down on my desk until I promised to buy a calligraphy pen!
OK. Maybe I'm exaggerating just a teeny bit. But it's still Barbara's fault. She left a post about getting back into calligraphy and then I wanted to do it, too.
I will go the traditional route with the ink, nibs and nib holder in a couple of months. For now, I just wanted something simple (and cheap) to play with. I got the 2.0 (fine) Speedball "Elegant Writer" (ie: felt tip calligraphy marker) for $3.49 minus a 40% coupon. I'm sure the cashier thought I was the cheapest person to go through her checkstand today. LOL
