    1. I tried calligraphy when I was much younger, but my attempts DID not look this good!

      So pretty! Any good resources you would recommend for calligraphy? I have terrible penmanship but love to be creative, make cards, etc. and hope that I can improve my skills someday;)

      What a great quote! I’d love to take a class from you sometime. I found my old pen, and eeew I was not good. I just have to say that I saw your pic from the DownEast gathering on whatever dee dee wants. You are the most stylish pregnant mama ever. I freaking loved your shirt.

        It was my girlfriend (also called Stephanie) whom commissioned this piece to be done. It sits above her desk pride of place. The quote is an adaptation from the French film Amélie, the original quote being ‘Luck is like the tour de france. She has grown up with the Tdf in her life with most of her loved ones riding too :) I’m glad you like it and i think Melissa did a fantastic job on it :)
