A warm "Hello" to new subscribers... and "Welcome Back" to everyone else!

Breathe. Write. Relax.

September! Even though I'm not going back to school, I always feel like I should be learning something new in the Fall. I've been focusing on hand lettering styles and will be sharing some new YouTube videos with you in the upcoming months.
My summer in Canada was rainy and cool so spending the last two weeks of August in Hawaii was AMAZING! The workshops at Ben Franklin HouseMart were awesome, and I filmed some segments with "Joy of Crafting."
Ben Franklin also sells my book The Art of Brush Lettering and set up a demo and book signing table for me in the store.
After a busy workshop schedule, I spent a lot of my free time with my sketchbook and watercolours on the beach and by the pool and in the coffee shop.
My upcoming workshops in the next few months are international....I will be teaching at PaperFest in URUGUAY end of October, I will be teaching at Art from the Heart in ENGLAND end of November, and then I will be in SWEDEN at CiLi in Papers beginning of December.

The Adventures of Finn ---- Finn had a ruff time this past month. He had surgery to remove a cyst in his hind leg, get a broken tooth removed, and had lots of X-rays. Finn's legs are quite weak and he doesn't jump or play like most dogs. The vet has discovered he has dwarfism in his front legs, which has impacted his elbows. Plus arthritis (and he's only 5 and half years old sadly.). He has healed up well and will be on medication for his aches and pains. But don't worry, he is still barking at the cat next door whenever he can.
