Back to School Treats

Even before I had children, August felt like a transitional month. Living in a college town like Boulder, things change around this time. There's a feeling of possibility, even for those of us who aren't in school. The upcoming fall days will invite indoor pursuits and give us long evenings to tap into our creativity and learn new skills. In celebration of this change, here are a few educational treats:

The Elegant Cursive Handwriting worksheet will teach you how to write in a beautiful, vintage-looking cursive hand.

Impress teacher (or your coworkers or just yourself) with gorgeous cursive handwriting! This worksheet provides ample practice.

While the goal of the course isn't to radically change your handwriting (it should still represent *you*), it doesn't hurt to try on a few new handwriting styles on for size! This is one of them.

New On the Scene: Bluebirds

There's a new printable bundle available on the TPK website! In The Bluebird Bundle, you'll find several patterns and pieces of decoupage-friendly artwork. All artwork in The Bluebird Bundle is -- you guessed it -- bluebird-themed.

I love to decoupage these illustrations to create quick + cool mail art.
This mail art was created with the 5" x 7" crosshatched bluebird illustration from The Bluebird Bundle.

What Else is Happening at TPK?

Rousy iron gall ink

  • I created a Facebook group for The Ultimate Beginner’s Watercolor Online Course learners after receiving several requests to do so. In the (completely optional) group, students can share their watercolor triumphs, frustrations, and photos of their work. You can find a link to join the group on the course page.
  • The TPK YouTube channel is growing! TPK is known for its written blog posts and tutorials, and now its videos offer inspiration, too. (My favorite recent video is this one.)
  • "Gulick Style" calligraphy is coming along. I just finished creating an exemplar of a new calligraphy style, and I'll be working on letter formations shortly. Look for the new worksheet set in September or October!
My kids have been loving all the kitchen cabinet boxes in our living room.

On a personal note, my kiddo starts preschool next week. Preschool! Where has the time gone? We've got his little backpack and his water bottle (the extent of his school supplies list) all set to go! I think he'll have a blast: he's been going to nursery school for the past two years, and he loves getting to meet new friends. The only thing we're nervous about? Getting him to school by 7:50. We're not a family of early risers, so please wish me luck. Cheers to all the students and the parents out there who are gearing up for the fall semester!
