Today, I feel like a bee in a bonnet...a BB in a boxcar...a chicken with its head cut-off...what else? A pinball? Anyway - a LOT to get done, including pack for the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting convention.
I'm really looking forward to IAMPETH!
I know IAMPETH President, Debi Zeinert, and her diligent crew have put in countless hours preparing for this year's gathering in Milwaukee.
Will you be at IAMPETH? Not going, but wish you were? Please leave a comment on this post!
The image above is the result of one of my "bottom of the inkwell" playtimes. When I get to the bottom of my inkwell, I will usually play in one of my journals or on a big sheet of paper as I did above. Then I tear the piece of paper into smaller sections. See my previous "bottom of the inkwell" posts by clicking HERE, HERE and HERE.
I thought you might be interested in the following. My thanks to Tootie Horn for sharing this information with me. Tootie received the following directly from calligrapher Tina Lee-Cronkhite:
I and five other calligraphers have devoted 2 years to producing our piece for Artprize, the world’s largest art competition in Grand Rapids, MI. From September 19th–October 7th 2012, you can view the piece at the Women’s City Club. PLEASE pass this on to all your friends. We’d like as many people to view this as possible. This is a work of art that will survive centuries because of the nature of the materials we have used. Not only is it a love of letters, but the Calligraphic world has not seen anything like this before. Please take a moment to view these sites and then sign up to vote! (You can’t vote until September 19th and you must sign up in person after doing it online to be eligible to vote, rules at artprize.org)
Please view The Power of Words by The Scribes Six.
( Marijo Carney, Kimberly Dixon, Jane Ewing, Tina Lee-Cronkhite, Christine Orsolini, and Karen Vosburg) I had the pleasure of meeting Jane Ewing during the Chicago Calligraphy Collective's fieldtrip to Twinrocker, and I wish her and her fellow scribes the best of luck.

I hope to see you Monday in Milwaukee!!!
