I figured no better time than to post this on a Sunday. On the blog I'm sharing a special printable book on the symbols of Christmas. I've researched, calligraphed and designed this baby. I'm so excited to share it with you! I hope you enjoy. I also hope you don't take offense if Christ isn't your thing. #istillloveyou Link in profile.

Half baked cookie on a skillet. The recipe needs a little tweaking, but not a bad way to start my Saturday morning. #breakfastofchampions #cheatday #foodie

"Ooreee!" I love hearing him say his favorite color. It makes my heart sing to see him get more and more verbal each day. #felimonster #pressplay

flavorpink : I have an almost 4 year old in the same boat and I agree: the special preschool was the best thing ever. He has improved so much since starting.
drenewt : That's a good /r/!
beanone : He is adorable and that sweater os AMAZING! #kidswithstyle
seekatesew : Such a handsome boy!
ponypants : @melissapher Thankyou so much for the advice!! She is getting him into kindy next year and already does speech therapy with him. He's been diagnosed with mild autism. She feels like it's her failing and I'm trying to show her that's it's totally okay and all kids are different.
ponypants : @connie.rie @antisparkle THANKYOU both for your advice and encouragement <3
kelseywilliams : that's my daughter's favorite color too!
melissapher : @ponypants I think every mother with a developmentally delayed child feels that. I went through some serious doubts and depression when we found out Felix wasn't "normal". Through all this I've come to trust God that He sent Felix to me for a reason. I'm not sure why, yet, but having that faith has helped me be a happier mother.

On the blog today. What to give to the calligrapher or calligraphy lover on your list? I've got you covered with ideas from @openinkstand @uniqueobliques @petsinguimendez @yokepencompany @erikanxpress @paperandinkarts @skylerchubak @penandpalates @cheerletter @plurabellemolly and more! Link in profile.
ashleydehart : @celestialastronaut
pamelalalasusan : Awesome! Question for you--what's the best pen holder for the Esterbrook 354/355? My holders are too big for them! @melissapher ❀
melissapher : @pamelalalasusan I use a straight holder. The kind with the metal teeth. If you get a custom holder made, you can have it adjusted to the nib. @yokepencompany does adjustments.
pamelalalasusan : Thanks so much!!
shakinarazale : @alexisyarif_mesut 😏
yokepencompany : @pamelalalasusan If you go to YouTube and search for Yoke Pen Co. I did a video showing how to adjust an oblique holder with a brass flange to fit a particular nib. Email me if you have any questions. 😁
plurabellemolly : Thank you so much for including me, @melissapher!
cheerletter : 😘
