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

Spring is Here!

What has happened to MARCH? I have been super busy writing my new book and can't wait to tell you more about it....arriving this Fall! HINT: I've been sharing some 'sneak peeks' on my Instagram and Facebook Stories.
At the beginning of March I went to San Francisco and attended PlannerCon....and it was such a fun time! 1200 planner people sharing all that they love about planning and journals! 
I taught a brush lettering workshop to 250 planner friends! With one free day, I visited and toured Alcatraz Island...such a fascinating history. Then I had fun with friends at the 3D Museum in SF.
After San Francisco, I had some time to teach a beginner brush lettering workshop at Treasured Memories, here in my hometown. Hometown workshops are the best! I will be teaching a second workshop June 15 for Level 2 Lettering. Click HERE for more info.
Then it was off to Seattle to teach Level 1 and 2 calligraphy workshops at Studio Life, a wonderful new workshop space in the university area in Seattle. Learn more about Studio Life and their many fantastic workshops by clicking HERE. 
It was a quick weekend in Seattle, but I made time for a little sketch in a wonderful little cafe called "Morsel." Fresh buttermilk biscuits and delicious Earl Grey tea for breakfast! (Pentalic Aqua Journal and Sakura Koi Field Sketch Box 24)
The month ended with a visit to Tampa and airings on the Home Shopping Network (HSN). If you live in the US, then you won't want to miss the amazing deals and low prices of Kelly Creates at HSN.com.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Practice faux calligraphy to help you understand the structure of the letter forms. Drawing the thick strokes with two lines also will improve your steady line skills.
