Those of you know know me know that I love paper.  Obsessed even.  Big swirling curly loops of cursive on fine quality paper with a sexy pen?  ::swoon::

For my birthday (in November, mind you…) my wonderful amazingly thoughtful friend got me a calligraphy lesson.  A few days ago, I finally cashed in the lesson and spent hours with the brilliant Lilly Lee, lettering with pencil, pen, a calligraphy pen…  and many many many sheets of layout paper.  I think I’ve found my true calling.
