I've learned a lot from this course and your one-on-one comments have been extremely helpful and valuable. I took another online calligraphy class and yours was far more helpful. Thanks again!
I am seriously so thankful I took your class. I never ever thought I would be able to do calligraphy at all. You made it easy to learn and your feedback was so sweet yet so helpful.
Thanks so much for putting your heart into your calligraphy class, Melissa. It was so much fun to take and such a confidence booster! You girls don't know how much inspiration and drive you put in us. I can be having the worst day, and see a DIY or calligraphy project on
ISLY, and my creative gears start turning... Really! Keep up the great work. I hope I'm right there along with you someday!
In the meantime, I'll keep making and addressing... and telling everyone about your online calligraphy course. :)
I'm in the middle of doing invitations and just had to stop and thank you, Melissa, for your course. I am in a much better place now than before I started the I Still Love Calligraphy course.
I literally could not have done this project had I not taken your course...you made me to be able to do this!
So I have one day left with the course and I just wanted to tell you how much I have loved it! I haven't submitted everything I have done, but all of the information has been so helpful and so informative. I learned calligraphy in my 7th grade art class (a long, long, long time ago) and I was in love from the start. It became a long-forgotten hobby over the years, so thank you for reminding me how much I love calligraphy.
I do have to say that this is the first time I have used the nib. I have always used calligraphy markers, but the pen and ink is so much more artistic and beautiful. I will never use a marker again. ;) I will whole heartily recommend this course to others.
