Welcome my fellow Lettering Lads and Lassies –
We’ve all survived the leprechaun and officially “sprung” forward. Whomever thought it a good idea to play with our clocks surely gets a chuckle twice a year for all of us who suffer through it. Mother Nature doesn’t change time. We still travel around the sun in our orbit but some knuckle head thought it would be wise to play with the human clock. The older I get the more I despise the Spring ahead and Fall back. It was so nice growing up in Indiana as they didn’t change time back then, but they do now. I don’t think I’ve caught up on that hour of sleep I “lost” yet!
Spring Forward is our theme for our first exhibit this year and it’s already hung for all to see at the Artist’s Showplace. Swing by and drop in to have a look. It is a very nice gallery and we are delighted to have been invited back this year.
Betty and I are taking to the road to present a mini workshop in Austin on April 22nd. During last month’s meeting I announced about the Austin Guild (Capital City Scribes) doing and exhibit based on Treewhispers. I’ve been in contact with their exhibit chair and they are super excited that we want to join in and do rounds for the exhibit. The rounds do need to be handmade paper and can be in the range of 6” to 12” in diameter. There are directions on the website treewhipers.com (this the link direct link to paper making recipe: https://treewhispers.com/tree-rounds-handmade-paper/make-paper/ )
I’m looking forward to gaining some insight into their paper making of rounds while there and plan on doing some round making myself. My challenge to our guild is to send at least 100 rounds to Capital City Scribes. Who’s with me? I’m thinking about doing little paper making party on a weekend in May. Stay tuned for more to come. Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested.
April 29 and 30 we are hosting Risa Gettler for Visagoth Versals. This is a weekend you won’t want to miss. See Sherry to find out if there are any seats still available.
