Spring, Snowstorms and Llamas!

Lately I have been playing with my Jewel metallic pens and loving the effects I get on the Black Practice Pad. These pens (both brush and bullet) are beautiful on white paper too!
I had a fantastic time at the brush lettering workshop in Calgary at The Paper and Ink Boutique ( even though driving there and back in one day was a nightmare because of a freak snow storm!).  
Finn is slowly learning to give up things he steals.... but not my pens! lol 
Have you ever thought about spending an entire weekend doing lettering? I would love for you to join me in Kentucky at Ephemera Paducah for an exclusive 3-day workshop event! We will fill our days with relaxing lettering, calligraphy and watercolor. Spend some time away from home for a special, art-filled weekend. CLICK HERE or below for registration details.

Vegas, BABY!  What happens when 1400 'llamas' are in one room together for an entire weekend? We party with our PLANNERS! The Go Wild conference was a BLAST! I wrote all the pretty names and met so many wonderful people. 
I met Erin Condren and Stephanie Fleming (The Happy Planner) and was in planner heaven!
American Crafts sponsored a table, and 10 lucky planner people sat at this beautiful galaxy theme table with a BIG swag bag of Kelly Creates products.
This week I am headed to Orlando for the Scrapbook & Stamp Expo, where I will be teaching 2 beginner brush lettering classes. I'm so excited because I have never been to Orlando, and my family will be joining me to see Disneyworld.

I am so honoured to be featured in an article and interview in the UK paper crafting magazine "Simply Cards & Papercraft." 
Have you heard of the Foil Quill by We R Memory Keepers? If you're crafty and have a Cricut or Silhouette or similar digital cutting machine, you will be excited about the Kelly Creates Design Drive with calligraphy words that it will draw with any variety of foil colours. I used my Brother Scan N Cut to draw the word 'celebrate' from my Kelly Creates USB. SO COOL! Click HERE to learn more 
I am headed back to South America to teach workshops! This time I will be in Colombia teaching for Panamericana, a popular chain of department stores in their country. Click HERE to learn more about these workshops and register.
