I am so inspired by your blog, working alone in my studio this spring day in Southern Ontario.

"A love of letters is a lifelong affair."

This is my original quote as a graphic designer, calligrapher, and mixed media artist.
LIke you, I like to leave no stone unturned!!

Crossing my fingers to win your gorgeous little book!!
