Thank You in Calligraphy

This thank you is for everyone who reads my blog. I don't know all of you so I listed the names of those of you who comment on a regular basis and those I know are checking my blog frequently.
I enjoy writing with my calligraphy pens and prefer the alphabet written in the Chancery Italic hand.
If your name isn't listed here, and you'd like to see it written in calligraphy (the art of beautiful writing), please leave a comment and I'll devote another blog post to the names requested.

I intended to post this in a day or two but must have hit the publish post button accidentally so here it is today. I wanted my previous post to be front and center for at least a couple of days. May I ask you to:




That's so LOVEly of you!
I'm so happy!!
Thank you so much Shaddy!
We are so blessed & truly loved~
Amazing Grace continue to rain on all of us always~ it's by faith alone that we are saved!

Shaddy! This is just wonderful! WOW! Thank you so much!!!!! I LOVE seeing the calligraphy you're doing and this is so special. I bet that took some time to do too.
I should hire you to work your calligraphy magic on a part of my family tree I've been wanting to print. Wouldn't that look wonderful?
Thank you so much dear
Love you,

That's so cool! The world needs more handwriting. All this typing feels impersonal.

First: golly, gosh and gee.

Second: you can take back the post. Go to edit, then save to draft. If you're really lucky and the function works, you can schedule it to post at a particular time using post options at the bottom of the window. Good luck.

, And we would love to be on the list in your blogroll! You may wonder why?
Because we want to have friends around the world and talk to friends and serious people like you!
Some people try to read and comment only blogs with a particular interest.
Not think that is more interesting to read someone who writes things interesting or less interesting but honest and write from the heart.
You know what I wanted to publish one day? I wanted a picture of a flower and describe how beautiful it is, even if we find a simple flower anywhere but things have little importance? We think so!
We respectfully welcome you and your readers!

Lenore: If you're happy, then I am too.

Sarie: I'm so glad you enjoyed a sample of my calligraphy. I'd be happy to work on your family tree. Enjoy this beautiful day in Wisconsin.

Kirsten: I'll be posting your name in calligraphy very soon. It should be pretty with the K.

Eci si Cami: I'll definitely include your names. I like your idea of posting a flower and your personal thoughts regarding it. I'll be checking out your blog ASAP. It is fun having friends from faraway places, indeed.

Gully: Thanks for the tip but I don't want to take this one back now that I've generated some interest. I'll use your tip in the future.

What a beautiful thing to share with everyone! I feel incredibly blessed to have such a warm-hearted cyber friend. Your lettering is magnificent. I agree with Kirsten, the world needs more handwritten notes and something as thoughtful as this should/could never be replaced by impersonal typeset.

darksculptures: As long as the ink keeps flowing, I'm a happy calligrapher. When I have trouble with the pen nibs or the ink, I get a little frustrated. With this project, I thought I was going to run out of dark green ink but I managed to squeeze enough out of the cartridge to finish what I'd begun.

Shaddy - I am blessed twice! First for the lovely calligraphy of my name (and my real name is in there too!) and second that you now have me on your blog roll list! Thank you so very much for including me!

Shaddy said...

Parrot: I'm looking forward to reading your blog. That's quite a coincidence that your real name appeared in my thank you letter.

Natasha said...

Shaddy -- This is so cool. THANK YOU! I love that you've remembered us all this way! It's beautiful.

No, thank you for sharing your beautiful talent with us.
I bet you're having a lot of fun with this. You could write poetry and frame it as gifts. Everyone loves handmade gifts.

Shaddy said...

Natasha: You're welcome.

dayner: You're right. I'm looking for any reason to do calligraphy. Poems would make nice gifts.
