2013 Peninsula Scribes Collaborative Project: “Where is Nancy Drew?”

The 2013 project for the Peninsula Scribes was call “Where is Nancy Drew?”, a collaborative decorated envelope project. All of the envelopes were put together into a quilt and shown at the 2013 Clallam County Fair. In the Fall 2015 edition of “Bound & Lettered” there is an article written by Linda O’Neill that describes how this project came about and what we all did to participate. Many of the envelopes created are shown within the article. Check out this month’s edition.

Fun Program with Kellie Moeller

Kellie Moeller provided the program on Friday at our meeting. She covered 2 different topics: using Citrosolv to alter images from magazines or mailers that can be used as backgrounds for calligraphy and her brush lettering alphabet. We had an opportunity to try out the alphabet and use it to create postcards for seniors. It was a very fun meeting.
