Happy Canada Day & Happy 4th of July!

Have a wonderful day/week!  Stay safe.

So the shopping cart is closed.

Thanks so much to everyone for their last minute orders.  I'm working all day to try to get them all out tomorrow! 
Let me tell you, I'm pooped!  Mary-Frances, you were the last one at 22:31!

The new site will be up soon.  It might look like a new empty apartment at first, but that will change!
And just a little fun easter egg to those who have ordered recently....  Did you get one of these on your order?

The star means you got the last one and the tick means I took it off the site.

lol, some of you just went through the "Last One" category and decimated it!  Pretty cute!

When I got up this morning, I realized how often I checked my phone to see if there was anything site-related I had to do...  I'm so discombobulated....!

Thanks again!

Sneak peek:

Online Class!

What is Skillshare?

If you're not familiar, Skillshare is an online learning community for creatives, home to thousands of classes on anything from business to graphic design to cooking. I absolutely love Skillshare and have been a Premium Member for a number of years and it's worth every cent!  There are loads of classes in all sorts of subjects and some really fabulous instructors!

Lettering in a Circle has been years in the making!  The technical side kept defeating me - until now!  So here it is!  I'm super excited to be sharing it.

Lettering in a Circle

So you're a lettering person and you love the paper to pen thing - just like me - and you've been practicing and making some cards and doing some words and you're looking for the next fun thing to do with your lettering.  
In this class we're going to take a line of your lettering and turn it into a complete full circle so it fits perfectly. When finished you can turn this into a card, create a frame for a photo, use it in a wedding invitation or announcement, or even have a rubberstamp made from your finished artwork.
You don't have to be an expert calligrapher and you can use any tool that you're comfortable with. It works in all styles. So let's get started. I'll see you in the first lesson!

To Take the Class for Free...
Sigh up for Premium Membership, and you'll get 2 months free.  You can cancel at anytime.  In other words, you can take the class and cancel your membership!  But you really should take a look around. Skillshare is fabulous! 
You don't need to be a calligrapher to take my Lettering in a Circle class!
