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

Hot & Cold!

One week ago I was on the beach in Florida... and today I have my snow pants on walking Finn outside! 
After HSN in Tampa, I flew to Miami to teach a workshop at Everything Scrapbook & Stamps in Lake Worth. This beautiful group made me feel right at home (and I wish I could live in this warm weather!)
This was my first time in Miami.... a food & walking tour in Little Havana (now OBSESSED with roosters), an afternoon on the beach eating stone crab, sketching palm trees in the park, strolling through Wynwood and AMAZED by the street art!
I've been busy making lots of new YouTube video tutorials to help improve your calligraphy and lettering skills.  Have you subscribed to my Channel?

Every month my friend Betty designs and colors a card that you can download and color yourself over at the Creative Scrapbooker magazine website. On this card, Betty added one of my new Bouncy Celebration stamps "thinking of you". Click HERE to learn more about this colouring card and find the free download.
HSN is always a great time with these two! Beth Kingston and Amber Kemp-Gerstel (from NBC's Making it!) They are professional crafters and are SO creative, funny and inspiring! Click HERE to shop Kelly Creates online at HSN.com (USA only).
Our Facebook group "Kelly Creates Art & Calligraphy" are writing beautiful words for the November Autumn theme!  Come join us and click HERE to participate in a friendly, creative community!
Last month I told you about INKTOBER and how I am participating in this creative challenge by sketching and hand lettering the prompts. I actually didn't think I would finish this challenge, but I'm so happy that I did! Below are a couple of my favourites. I used my Black Fineliners set and Black 3-pack of brush pens for the entire month.
On November 2 I was invited to present at the Edmonton Early Childhood Education Conference .... and it felt wonderful to spend time with fellow teachers and talk about brush lettering in my hometown.
In one week, I will be teaching workshops in Santiago, Chile on Nov 23-24 at Arte Papel !
