JOURNAL YOUR DAY
treasure your story
 
Everyone has a STORY and your story is made up of hundreds of little day-to-day moments.  In addition to portability and simplicity, we will discuss layout, color, and adding words. Because what is a story without words?! We are  calligraphers, after all! This month Kim Lamberth will help us explore ways to use the new skills and tools learned over the past year to capture your unique storyline.

This program is all about you! Bring your favorite tools and supplies and we will talk about how to use those to JOURNAL YOUR DAY.  While we will not use acrylics, you are encouraged to bring pieces or strips of things you’ve made (gelli print, marbled paper) and we will incorporate them. 
“Suggestions” of what to bring:

*      Journal, about 5x8 or similar, or loose paper that works with your preferred medium. (Although I really recommend a bound journal!)
*      watercolors - pencils/pan/or liquid such as Ecoline
*      brush markers such as Tombow and/or colored markers
*      Permanent pen 0.3 or 0.5

Secret Pals Revealed



Wonder what’s under all those pretty wraps? After 3 months of sending mail, delivering packages, and guessing, the time has come to find out who’s behind all those secrets. The April program is devoted to revealing who’s been sending secrets to whom. To the 14 people who are participating in this oh-so-fun exchange, please be sure to bring everything you have received, plus the wrapping (empty candy wrappers OK!) to show off and explain, and a “thank you” card to give to the person who is responsible for all your goodies. You will have a couple of minutes to present your stuff to the members. Everyone else can enjoy the show!
