Gobble, Gobble and Ho, Ho, Ho –
The ghosts and goblins have come and gone, so til next year may you rest peacefully knowing the chilly nights are calm again. Although, as lettering artists and artists in general I hope you took advantage of the fun and unique opportunities Halloween allows us to work with. I sent a couple decorated envelopes with spooky lettering on the inside and even took the liberty of mis-spelling my favorite holiday, but not realizing it until they were postal….of well, at least there’s more to look at than just spelling….Happy Holloween!
Oh, the cooler nights are refreshing and invigorating, to me at least. The crisp air in the morning is soothing and allows me to have more focus which sets the tone of the day and gives me the kick start that the dog days of Summer sucks out of me! Not to mention the gorgeous landscape the Mother Nature paints for us, if only I could mix my paints to look like that!
It’s Bazaar Time! Yup, that means shopping and mingling and shopping and a really short program. I’ll try to make the business side short too so we can …. yes, shop more! Please make sure you have your items uniquely marked along with a price (even if it’s free, please mark it as Free). Rick and I will be your cashiers. Bring your cash, checks, plastic (we’ll have a square) and don’t forget to bring a friend! 10% of member sales will go to Kaligrafos.
Please bring all your rounds no matter if they are finished or not. I will be sending them to Austin mid-November. The unfinished rounds will go towards our own Treewhispers exhibit. There will be need to be another paper making day or two and many rounds to be completed to add to the Austin exhibit to “grow” the forest when it’s exhibited in Dallas.
So, this is it for this year. Mark 2017 in the books as the next time we meet it’ll be 2018!
Have a safe, fun, and letter friendly Holiday season!
May your nibs flow with spectacular ink and float on the envelopes for the Christmas season.
Peace, Love, and Good Happiness Stuff
