Hey Friends! 2016 is going to be a CRAZY exciting and busy year for me. I have so many amazing projects and collaborations in the works, I’ll share each one with you as I can! But, here’s the thing… Recently one of my kids asked me what my hobbies were… I was kind of puzzled. Almost all of my “hobbies” have become part of my job. I think that’s the best thing ever, because it means I’m getting paid to do what I love, but it also kind of left me like Hmm…. S0, I decided that even though 2016 is going to be intense work-wise, I want to make time for a hobby. I’m going to learn calligraphy– or at least try- and I thought it would be super fun to do it with a few online pals too!
My friend, and insanely talented artist, Kim just launched an online version of her crazy popular Modern Calligraphy Workshop. She offers them in person in Indianapolis and they sell out like hot-cakes. Kim is mad talented, but she’s also hysterical, a straight-shooter, and all-around cool chick that you’d want to be friends with.
Her video-based workshop comes with everything we need to become calligraphy masters! The workshop is self-paced and never expires, so we can keep honing our skills (I have a feeling it might take me a little while to get the hang of it) as long as it takes.

I’m placing my order this afternoon and would love to know if you’re signing up too! I seriously want to do this with some friends- I think it will be really fun to see how we all do!
I pulled some info from Kim’s website, so I’ll let her do the explaining now, but I’d love for you to join me on my new hobby journey in 2016!
