Welcome folk lore enthusiasts –
Tis March already and among the hustle and bustle of Mother Nature preparing for Spring there’s this wee little event on the 17th. Maybe you’ve heard of it before, St. Patrick’s Day? Which brings along with it all the lore of the Leprechaun. They are usually depicted as little bearded men, wearing a coat and hat, who partake in mischief. They are solitary creatures who spend their time making and mending shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Sounds pretty familiar to me being solitary in nature that is but instead of mending shoes us letter artist’s are creating beautiful visual prose and of course we have no pots of golds but many pots of ink!
The Austin exhibit was a huge success and well received by the Library and patrons. If you have not checked out Capital City Scribes on FaceBook then take a few moments to look them up and peruse through the pictures.
Things are changing/developing on the Tree Whispers front from my initial vision for Kaligrafos. I will keep you posted as things unfold for us hosting an exhibit.
Have you ever been mesmerized by pastels and wonder what you could do with them or how to incorporate them into your calligraphic pieces? Well, March is your meeting as the program is dedicated to pastels and will be led by Barbara Mason from the pastel Society, but that’s not all. The mini workshop following the program is on pastels and will be taught by our own Sherry Barber. She’ll show us some of her tricks and give us tips on how to put pastels in our arsenal of techniques!
Your Nominating Committee was announced at the last meeting and is comprised of Kathy Setina – Chairman

In case you didn’t get enough of the Fountain Pen crazy from the January meeting I thought would give you a little nudge. These are some great website sites:
Check out the wax seals from Papier Plume – they can be addicting too.
