The Scriptorium is my work journal; a place for show and tell.

All tied up

Today I'm sending off some paper samples to two fellow calligraphers.  This is one of the joys of being part of the calligraphy community--sharing our time, our knowledge, our tools, and our encouragement with each other.  From the most experienced calligraphers to those just picking up the pen for the first time and every step of the way between, we share our love for this craft and each other in tangible ways.  This beautiful hand-dyed silk ribbon was given to me by Joie, the fantastic calligrapher behind Bienfait Calligraphy.  She dyes this ribbon herself--a beautiful addition to her calligraphy toolbox.  And so, when I had the opportunity to share one of my favorite papers with a couple of callifriends, Joie's gift to me came to mind.  Passing on a blessing that was given to you allows you to enjoy the blessing twice!  Pass it on!
