Happy Weekend

After a really tough week, I’m looking forward to a long weekend to rest and de-stress a bit. But first, exciting news! We’ve scheduled our first workshops at Common Room Studio! Michele of Meant to Be Calligraphy will be teaching her Introduction to Contemporary Pointed Pen Calligraphy and Introduction to Modern Brush Lettering classes on October 15 and November 19! You can sign up here and here.

Also! A couple of folks have suggested sending thank you cards to the doctors, nurses, and hospital staff in Las Vegas – and I love this idea! If anyone can write a great thank you card, it’s paper people (aka you guys!). If you’re able to take a few minutes to write, here are the addresses:

UMC Hospital Las Vegas
1800 W. Charleston Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89102

Sunrise Hospital Las Vegas
3186 S. Maryland Parkway
Las Vegas, NV 89019

Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center
2075 E. Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89119

  1. There were also victims that driven to Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center. Those doctors and nurses have been working around the clock helping those victims, and could use a little love as well.
