This Friday's flourish is one I tried to duplicate from page 157 of The Universal Penman by George Bickham. It was a tough one for me. I should speed up to reduce the wiggles, but when I speed up my pen starts doing things and going places I don't want!
IAMPETH has mailed the 2010 convention information to all members. If you like pointed pen work, I encourage you to join IAMPETH. You can visit the IAMPETH site here. The convention looks as though it will be another good one. Non-members will be able to view and register for the convention on February 19th.
Although we have not yet received official word on Madiana and her family specifically, today we have learned that her child development center was moderately affected by the Haiti earthquake. This means her center was located outside a zone officially reported as severe and the center has not reported any deaths. The center has reported damage to homes and center facilities, but this is reason to believe that Madiana is alive and well. Thank you so much for your prayers, and I will post when we hear specific word about Madiana. I understand that specific news may take a very long time to reach us.
I see A Place to Fourish will be celebrating its 1st anniversary next week! I think it's time for me to have my first giveaway. hmmmm.... I will have to think of something flourishy to create. Thank you all for taking the time to visit, read, comment and email me. Blogging has been a wonderful experience. I have met so many warm and wonderful people. Check back next week for the Anniversary Giveaway.
I'm a calligrapher working out of my home studio. I have a passion for calligraphy and have an insatiable appetite for learning new things to incorporate with my lettering.
I have reduced the amount of client work I accept, and as a result, my schedule fills quickly. Of course, you are welcome to contact me about my availability. If I am unable to do the work, then I am pleased to provide referrals.
In addition to calligraphy, I enjoy journaling, traveling, baking, reading and watching Purdue University basketball. I am married to my best friend and we have two great kids.
Feel free to email me about my work, but please do not take, download, or copy my work without my permission.
