For Stephanie

This is for Stephanie---anyone else want their name in graffiti letters???


Just spent all afternoon cropping my pictures from my trip to the graffiti wall in St. Louis. I went with the calligraphy guild in mid-May, but haven't had the time to go through the pictures. I knew I could find letters in all of the designs. I avoided any actual writing and just photographed the design images like the one below.

I looked through all of the images picking out the alphabet and even got a few of each letter! They will be made into a new set of Sign Language letters soon.... I just love the look of them and think they will be fun for scrapbooks and cards!

If you want your name in graffiti letters, just post a comment and I will post your name here.

ACTS retreat

One of the other reasons that I have been so busy, is that I was on team for an ACTS retreat at our church, St. Gabriel the Archangel. What a great experience! 30 women leading 21 on a retreat to grow closer to God and as a church community. I was on the music team with 3 very talented women, which was a lot of work but a lot of fun. I also did all of the nametags, signs and graphics to go with our theme "Do Not Be Afraid". Below is a sample of a name tag.

The song for our retreat was writteen by David Kauffman, titled "Do Not Be Afraid" and I'm hoping it shows up on one of his future CDs soon.

If anyone has been on ACTS and wants to share, I would love to hear your story!
