We just got in these two new products from Clairefontaine that we special ordered weeks ago, specifically for handwriting and great for kids, and along with so much great interest from the recent Globe & Mail article on cursive handwriting, I thought I would share some tips on teaching your child handwriting.
I am so thrilled to tell you that the Globe and Mail published an article on the lost art of cursive handwriting and its place in our ever-changing and fast-paced world.
We just had our Children's Handwriting Class earlier this afternoon, which was a lot of fun! We had a few kids come over to the shop and I was a bit more prepared this time with some folders and worksheets and my favourite stickers.
We just had our first Children's Handwriting Class! I think it was a success, but I think to really find out how it was you'll have to ask the students (haha!).
One of the things we hope to do with the shop and the blog is to encourage and inspire you to write more. Whether it's writing letters, or writing in your journal, or writing creatively, I hope you can find the physical tools to inspire you, but that you can also read the blog and maybe find some small spark for your writing.
So we've mostly recovered from the Vintage Pen Market this past weekend, especially since we also had Monday off.
I mean, I've had bubble tea before, but since we've moved here to the East End, there's a bubble tea place not so far, and I've had enough of it to make up for an entire teenage-hood without it. I feel like I'm discovering my Asian roots.
I think I've mentioned somewhere on the blog before that I write in a journal, although I sometimes wish I made more time for it.
Seyes ruled or French ruled paper is widespread in France, and actually, I think you can find it in many countries in Europe.
It's National Handwriting Day! We often get people in the shop who are looking for a fountain pen in order to improve their handwriting, or tell us that they've noticed their handwriting improving since they've started using a new pen.
