Autumn has definitely arrived in the Rain Forest.  We're dodging rain and it is looking decidedly gray.  Thank goodness for the lovely fall leaves!

Journal Fodder Junkies

I have been following the Journal Fodder Junkies blog and reading Eric and Dave's book The Journal Junkies Workshop.  This is a page I did following their "recipe" for multiple layers.

Fun at WOOL and Meeting Suzanne from Quietfire Design

I'm back from Turkey (it's fabulous, do go if you get the chance), and thinking about blogging.  But what?  Then I saw a Facebook post from Suzanne at Quietfire Design and remember how much fun WOOL was.  WOOL?  WOOL stands for "Westcoast Odyssey of Letters", the Westcoast Calligraphy Society's bi-annual conference I attended just over a week ago.  I made this piece in my "Design and Layout" class.

I also had a chance to meet Suzanne from Quietfire Design.  Suzanne is a marvelous calligrapher and past-president of the Westcoast Calligraphy Society.  She came to WOOL to teach and to offer us an opportunity to buy some of those hard-to-find calligraphy supplies.  She's doing a blinkie swap right now and I recommend you check out her site.  It includes some fabulous "new to calligraphy" tips as well as her wonderful calligraphy rubber stamps.
