Here is my final inked quote.  I have a LONG way to go but I was trying to be true to my natural handwriting as well rather than just copying the script.

Here is my practice sheet (after being dropped upside down while wet ACK!)...this seemed to be my moments of lessons learned a few seconds too late.  Also the chiseled nib that I was using was way too large for the size strokes that I was making (about half the size of the strokes I was making rather than 1/5). Great practice though!


Here is my sketched quote as well:



I'm so excited to start this session.  The quote that I've decided to use for this session is "The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are." -J.P. Morgan.  In 2013, when my husband and I decided to move cross-country from our hometown of nearly 30 years, I felt a bit lost and unsure of how to even begin moving my entire life and leaving all my friends and comforts of home.  I had come across this quote (I believe on pinterest) and it became my moving mantra.
