Calligraphy Flourish Friday - Changes

 The Times They Are a-Changin'...  I have been posting each Friday for over 4 years now, and it's time for a change.  This will be my last "new" Flourish Friday.  I will be selecting some of my favorite posts from the past 4 years, and if I can figure out how to do it, update and republish them for the next several Fridays. (I wouldn't make you go cold turkey.)

After that, I will continue to post but randomly so.  I intend to systematically go through the materials for all the different workshops I have taken over the years.  I want to spend time reading my notes, going over the instructors handouts, and then (surprise!) taking the time TO ACTUALLY CREATE SOMETHING based on what I've studied and learned!  I seem to come home from a workshop or class all fired-up, but then the next thing I know time has passed without me doing anything.  I know I won't be able to do it weekly, but I will post to my blog after each workshop I revisit - including the Reggie Ezell workshop I will be taking this weekend. :)

Even though things will be changing a bit, I hope you'll continue to follow me here at A Place To Flourish.  In the meantime,  I will post images on my Instagram account

Above is a peek at four of the five pieces I have in the Calligraphy Guild of Indiana's exhibit at Sullivan Munce Cultural Center in Zionsville.  The opening reception is tonight from 5-8pm, and the exhibit will on display through November 9, 2013.  If you'll be in the Indianapolis area, then please check it out.  Julia Fish Thompson, a CGI member, is having an exhibit of her work just a few blocks away at Robert Goodman Jewelers.  Julia's opening reception is tonight also (5-8pm), and her exhibit runs through November.  Two calligraphic treats for the price of one trip to lovely Zionsville!

I have enjoyed preparing all 268 of my weekly posts.  Blogging has been such a terrific experience.  For me, it's not as noisy or time devouring as Facebook, and I've met so many wonderful people.  Thank you for joining me as I happily wander along on my calligraphic journey replete with bad poor grammar and misspellings.  I appreciate your company along the way!

Happy weekend, Friends.
Go forth and flourish!
