Chance to win classes for free!

Hey, everyone,
Thought I'd pass this on to those of you who enjoy taking online classes. I am a teacher with Creative Workshops, and 20 of the teachers are each giving away one of their classes. Many things are taught, so you might find something you'd like to be put on the list to win. 
This Blog Party Hop and Class Giveaway started yesterday and ends on the 29th. If you are interested, you can go to my blog at , read the first post, then follow the easy instructions.
This is fun!

Online Calligraphy Classes

For those of you who are following this blog, I thought I would let you know that I now have calligraphy classes online, if you are interested. What is so great about these classes is that you take them in the comfort of your own home, sitting at your computer (in your pajamas with that hot cup of coffee, or with your toddler safe and asleep in the crib..).

These classes are go-at-your-own-pace and start when you want to start. You can watch them over and over, for as long as you want. You can pause me, rewind, and look again at how I make a letterform. The site says they are open to you for a year, but I think you can watch them longer.

So far, I have Copperplate for Beginners, Copperplate Advanced Capitals, and Uncial a Medieval Script will open to the public on October 30.

Brush Italic is FUN!

This brush Italic is so much fun, and easy, and fast! I am photographing a couple today for their Engagement Announcement. The Bride had a bunch of pics on a Pinterest Board of hers of images that she wanted me to recreate. Lots of brides were holding homemade signs that said, "I said yes!" I was able to whip this one out in no time at all for her. 

Isn't it grand that we can do these things? 

I am so glad "I said Yes!" to calligraphy!!!
