NEW Worksheets and World Calligraphy Day!

Breathe. Write. Relax.
August 14 is World Calligraphy Day! I feel that the most valuable gift calligraphy has given me is connecting to creative people around the world. I am so lucky to be able to travel and share my love of letters with everyone in so many countries.
Another celebration for World Calligraphy....is the announcement this month of my Kelly Creates brand of products in Spotlight stores in Australia and New Zealand! Don't forget to enter to win this awesome Giveaway that is taking place on my @kellycreates Instagram account and Facebook page. Click HERE to enter on Instagram and HERE for Facebook.
To celebrate World Calligraphy Day, I am FINALLY announcing a new set of worksheets in my Shop! So many of you have been asking for Bouncy "Connections" to practice words...and here they are! This is Set 1 "Calendar Words for Large Brush pens.  There will be more coming this Fall, including Bouncy Connections for Small Brush pens too.

Thank you for your patience...we have been waiting and waiting for my new pens but due to factory issues, they have been delayed until September (fingers crossed). I apologize and hope we will be writing with them soon. 
TIP OF THE MONTH: Work on your fine motor skills and try writing words with dash lines. Try making all the lines exactly the same length.
