Mister and Misses Magical Minuscule-
As we wrap up another year it’s this time that I reflect and pounder just where the time slipped away to. This was our first year of “mini” or rather petite workshops where members hosted in their homes and instructed us on a variety of topics. We also had a stellar second year at the Dallas Pen show and where asked again to present and drew an even bigger crowd then the year before! Exhibits in the books, Valentine Social at a new location, Major workshops, and all the Programs. It was a good year. Give your selves a round of appluase as if it weren’t for all of you none of us would be here. And a HUGE Thank You to the board; your dedication, devotion, and passion is what truly make Kaligrafos what it is. …Thank You…
Don’t forget we have July Exhibit that is Patriotic themed. Keep your eye out for deadlines and volunteer opportunities as you sit and relax by the pool/lake/chiminea and sip on the pleasures of summer.
I “hope” to organize a little paper making session and decorating fun day or days this summer. This is in support of the Austin guild Tree Whisper Exhibit. I had originally stated sometime in May, but with 2 workshops, out of town guests, Birthday party and sleep over with our grandson the calendar went from “not too bad” to can I get 2 more weekends in May!?!?!
If you find you are wanting to practice and just can’t sit down and write without having a purpose check out Pushing the Envelopes blog. Here is the link: http://pushingtheenvelopes.blogspot.com It not only great ideas and the coolest envelope blog to read she has an exchange every month. They are what I call “one Shots” meaning it’s only a single month and you typically have the option of either 5 or 10 envelopes. I find this gives me purpose and makes me do something.
Relax, rejuvenate, and write! It’s what Summer is all about, well, mostly………
