Canada has a long winter, but our summers are beautiful. I am so happy to be home enjoying the outdoors...when it isn't raining. haha! We have had unseasonably wet weather! 
Hometown workshops are always so much fun! I returned to Calgary and taught another Beginner Brush Lettering class at The Paper and Ink Boutique and also offered a Level 2 Brush Lettering workshop in Edmonton at Treasured Memories. 
This month I have been keeping busy with Facebook Boot Camps. My first 'Blending' boot camp was very popular, and we had fun learning a variety of blending techniques using the Kelly Creates Blending Kit.
