I'm thrilled to announce year three of Pull Pen Paint: Exploring Intuition, Imagination, and Imagery. If you've been around here long, you know that this class is near and dear to my heart. It's one of the classes that I hoped someone else would offer, but never saw it happening, so I reached out to some of my pals and favorite online people and we built a beautiful community with love, light, and lessons on how to tap into that which makes us magical.
This year I've gather 16 of my favs and we just opened the doors for 2019. Here's what I'm looking forward to from this year's line up of teachers.
Happy New Year!!
This year, like the last several years, I've selected a word, color, and symbol of the year. I find that doing this helps me recalibrate when things in my life get a bit hectic or chaotic. It also keeps me grounded and focused on what feels important to me at the start of a new year. I do this instead of setting resolutions that I will probably forget by February and that don't really do much for helping me be more mindful. You might wonder why I pick the three. Well, here's a little bit about that and how I use the three to help me stay committed to my journey.

So I recently stumbled upon this idea that has the power to change my life in the best way possible. Maybe you’ve heard of it, but it’s new to me and it has blown my mind. I’ve spent three weeks binge watching videos on YouTube and reading as many articles as I could find about the idea. Now I want to share my thoughts and my take on it. And of course share with you how I plan to make it happen.
WARNING: This concept won’t appeal to everyone, but I share it because it really resonates with me and it comes at the right time in my life. You may want to do a WIDTH year instead -- a year where you go wide, learn more, and do more. I’ve had a Width Life, so I’m good on that front for now.
Welcome to my first Fountain Pen Friday Post!!!
Don’t you just love the start of something new? I’ve been thinking about this series for several years. I allowed my inner critic to shut me down each time I tried to begin this conversation with you all. My alternative response was to start the Fountain Pen Frenzy challenge twice in 2017 and a third time in February of this year (I'm running it again in November). There are SOOOOOO many people doing fountain pen reviews and blogging about fountain pens that I felt really silly jumping into the pool so late.
But no more of that. Here I am!! I’ve got a unique voice in the fountain pen community and I have things I’d like to share with those who use fountain pens, those who are thinking about fountain pens, and those who create fountain pens.
It's likely this will span beyond Fridays, but I had to start somewhere. So here we go!!
Hello Beautiful Creative People!!!

I have watched Kasia and Jamie create and run this lovely program -- WANDERLUST -- for several years and never, in a million years thought I would be on the roster to share my love of creativity, bookbinding, and art journaling.
