Happy Fall – Halloween Exchange is now open for sign ups!

Hi Flourish Friends,

It has been quite some time since I posted an update for Flourish members. If you are receiving this message via email, it is because at some point you signed up for emails via the Flourish Forum blog. 😉

I have just posted the sign-ups for the always popular Halloween | Day of the Dead Exchange. This exchange will work a little differently than previous ones. The lists will be set up according to skill level starting with complete newbie up through advanced.

I know some folks will be disappointed with this so there will also be a “lottery” in that each advanced skilled member will have one newbie/beginner on their list to send an exchange. This way beginners will still have a chance at receiving a more advanced skill exchange.

Sign ups can be found here: Halloween Exchange Sign Up post

Many new members, both experienced and beginners, have joined us over the summer. Although things have been quiet, we’ve watched some great improvements being made and continued to share new calligraphy related finds.

Most recently, generous member SMK (Salman) has begun sharing his fantastic Copperplate tutorials. These are very in-depth lessons with great detail. This is an incredibly generous and exciting offering from Salman and we are very lucky to have him sharing with us and giving so much of his time and experience. Salman’s lessons are in the Tutorial board which can only be accessed once logged in.

If it’s been awhile since you’ve joined us, I hope you stop in to say hi, share with us what you have been up to, and sign up, if you’d like, for the Halloween | Day of the Dead exchange.

Truly,

Erica

New 2015 Sharing & Caring Exchanges Announced!

As the year draws to a close, I am relishing in all the new friends made, new knowledge gained, and pure joy Flourish forum members have spread throughout the globe.

It’s been equally as fun preparing for the new year ahead. I’ve updated the homepage with some new colors and a new look. And I’ve published our new Sharing & Caring Exchanges for 2015!

This year’s exchanges were a smashing success and members shared beautiful calligraphy all over the world. In total, we sent over 2,000 calligraphed envelopes and cards! Next year promises to be even bigger with lots of fun themes and opportunities to share our creativity and love for calligraphy.

You must be a member to participate so if you haven’t registered yet, sign up now. Our first exchange, the ever popular Valentine’s Exchange has just opened up for sign ups and our first ever Advanced Exchange, “Mimic a Master” has just opened up as well.

Wishing everyone a very happy New Year with much health, happiness, and success in 2015!
