Below are the upcoming October workshops as well as descriptions for both the Part 1 and Part 2 curriculum! If you’ve been wanting to learn how to brush letter, join me this fall for a class!
My Beginners Brush Lettering Workshop Part 1 covers all the basics–the best tools to use, how to hold a brush pen, how to create basic strokes, how to make letters, and how to build words–all in a small class environment so you receive plenty of one-on-one instruction. You will receive 3 of my favorite brush pens for beginners, a workbook with worksheets, different papers to try, and all my best tips and tricks! After the class you will receive over 50 PDFs that you can print out at home to keep practicing and continue your lettering journey with as well as helpful links and resources.
My Beginners Brush Lettering Workshop Part 2 is for those of you who have taken Part 1 or have brush lettering experience and want to continue your lettering journey! This class focuses on adding bounce/movement and decorative flourishes to your lettering. We will also talk about layouts and tops on developing your style. You will receive 3 new pens, workbook, paper, and all the worksheets in PDF form.
Below is the current October workshop schedule and you can also always find all the classes and any new added dates here.

I am so excited to be co-hosting a Holiday Snail Mail Card Swap with my good friend and fellow animal lover Jenna of Paper Wilderness! We created this swap as a way for us to get into the holiday spirit, encourage snail mail, support local artists and businesses, and to connect and have fun! :) Join us and receive a fun mix of holiday cards that you’ll be able to use this season! Below are all the details or you can find them on directly on the sign up page as well.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THIS SWAP?
We welcome card designers, snail mail enthusiasts, makers and shop owners, card and stationery lovers, and everyone in between–if you would enjoy getting mail and some holiday cards to use this season, we would love to have you join us! It’s also a fun way to show your work and support the artists and designers you love!
International participants are welcome!
WHAT WILL I RECEIVE/WHAT DO I NEED TO SEND?
The idea is for you to receive a variety of holiday cards that you’ll be able to use this holiday season.
By joining the swap, you are agreeing to send 1 unused A2 (4.25″x5.5″) holiday card to EACH of your swap matches. (Do NOT write inside the card–the idea is for each person to get a brand new card that they will be able to use.)
You will be put into groups of 3-5 matches. You will be sending each of your matches 1 card and you will also receive a card from each of your matches as well.
We ask that the value of your card be $5 minimum. We encourage you to support small businesses and purchase from local artists or shops.
We also think it’d be nice (but not required) if you add a separate note to say hi to your swap match :)
Optional: If you’d like to send a bigger card or one of more value, feel free! You can also add a short note or extra goodies (stickers, gift tags, etc.) if you’d like.
IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER
Swap sign up ends on October 23rd.
You will receive an email with your swap matches on October 27th.
The deadline to send your cards out by is November 11th.
SHARE / SOCIAL MEDIA
The more the merrier! We’d love for you to spread the word about this swap and let everyone know you are participating!
The hashtag for the swap is #2019holidaycardswap
Olivia’s Instagram is @atiliay
Jenna’s Instagram is @thepaperwilderness
We will also be sharing the swap on our accounts so feel free to repost or use those images!
After you sign up, you will receive an email with your swap matches on 10/27/19 that will also include helpful tips on sending out your cards. If you have any questions, feel free to email Olivia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you’ll join us and are as excited as we are about swapping holiday inspired mail!

7.13.19 | COTTONWOOD HOME | HACIENDA HEIGHTS
Kicked off July workshops with these wonderful ladies– Janice, Linda, Janine, Jessica, Agnes, and Danielle! Workshops are a great chance to spend time with your friends and family and I was very happy to teach a pair of friends, a pair of co-workers, and a mother and daughter :) It’s great to have someone to share a new hobby with and you also have an accountability buddy for practicing once you are back at home! We had a lot of lettering and Boomerang fun and I loved how focused everyone was. I had a wonderful morning and am excited for each of them to continue to grow and use their new skill! A big thank you to Kari for hosting us in her adorable space and being the best photographer :)
7.21.19 | THE POTTING SHED | OLD TOWNE ORANGE
Thank you Linda, Darlene, Adrienne, Clara, Wren, Jacqueline, Dabbie, and Jennifer for joining me at The Potting Shed for a Sunday Funday workshop! I really loved everyone’s enthusiasm throughout the entire class and it was a lovely way to spend my Sunday. Everyone did a great job so I hope they remember to not be too hard on themselves :) Thank you Jack and Luis for having me in their inspiring space!
7.27.19 | LG COLLECTIVE + RUNWAY TRASH | LONG BEACH
Wrapping up July workshops at Runway Trash with Elena, Stephane, Sarah, Lucy, Darlene, Deborah, Bashka, and Laurie! I loved that we had a lot of different creatives in this class from a tattoo artist to an architect to a hobby sewer to typography enthusiasts! Brush lettering may be a different medium from what they are used to but I hope they enjoyed adding this to their set of skills. I appreciate the opportunity I had to share and everyone brought such great energy to the class! Thank you Lauree of LG Collective for hosting us and Phimpha for having us in your fun space!

Plan, do, accomplish!
This month’s freebie PDF is something that I created for myself and wanted to share in case it works for you too–it’s a weekly planning sheet to stay on top of appointments, deadlines, birthdays, tasks, and goals!
I’ve used a ton of different planners/calendars and nothing has stuck with me except for a weekly planning pad I got. I’ve been using it since the year started and when I fill it in and schedule out my day, I feel super productive and organized! I only have a few sheets left of the pad so I decided to change the things I didn’t utilize or like and came up with this guy!
I think this method works for me because all the information is out and easily accessible (vs. planners and journals where you have to flip back and forth through different pages). It’s also very easy to use and fill in–nothing fancy, just something that gets the job done for me!
I keep my sheets on a clipboard so I can easily switch out the sheets. I save the previous ones behind the new ones in case I need to refer back to them. I also print on both sides to try to save some paper! (And when I am all done the sheets will be recycled.)
You can download this weekly planning sheet PDF for free by signing up for Atiliay’s newsletter. You’ll also get access to an entire library of free PDFs as well as new ones every month! Click the link below and let’s get organized together!
I hope you like it and that it helps you stay on top of things so that you can make more time for things that matter most to you! :)
