Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Flourish Friends!

Just a quick note to say hope you all have a fantastic new year filled with fun, family, and flourishing! In honor of new years (and staying up late to wait for my teenager to come home safely), I created a mini-tutorial of Tips for Calligraphy & Design. I also added a new board called, Design & Layout where members can share their design tips, secrets, and examples.

Design Tips for Calligraphers

For all you new members, this is just one of many tutorials at Flourish. If you are a new member, please be sure to check out the Copperplate Tutorial video series in the Pointed Pen Nirvana section.

So grateful to all of the wonderful members at Flourish for answering questions, sharing information, and spreading the love of lettering! 2014 has been a great year!

Happy 2015!

    I began following Flourish due to a post by Trish Taylor and because it fits in very well with the Drawing classes I teach. Due to some of your new security measures, I can no longer sign in and the website says a verification email was sent yet I received nothing (3 times!). If you no longer want me to visit your site, please remove me from your EMAILS as well. Thank you. John Naber (id=dorothydotts)

      Hi John,
      I’m sorry about the trouble you are experiencing with logging in. Unfortunately, we had a spam attack just before Christmas and new security measures were put in place to protect the forum. A spam attack can take down an entire forum and ruin it for good, so the new security measures were needed. However, I am in the process of tweaking it because one of the programs is incorrectly labeling some members or registrants as spam. Please don’t take it personally as it has nothing do with whether we want you to visit Flourish or not. Also, please check your spam box to make sure the verification emails weren’t sent there. I will email you directly once I figure out how to correct it.

    Happy New Year, Erica!
    Thank you very much for your wonderful forum, for all we can learn there and have a community as well. I am more a silent reader, but I appreciate the forum very much.
    Best wishes Sigrid
