Fox Lake Spring Festival of Crafts 2021
Fox Lake Park, Titusville
Our president Joanne Fisher, Jay Heavner, and Jessica Broyles all had booths at the festival. Everyone sold books and interacted with readers, and it seems to have been a success. If you couldn’t be there, you were missed. If you want to sell books, this is a good venue to do so, and to get the Guild known in the community. The next one will be in November. Stay tuned for more information about this upcoming event!

From Cover Designer Tamian Wood
For this month’s project, I did a little pro bono work for a classmate and cancer survivor.
This “thumbnail” image will advertise their masterclass about thriving through chemo treatment using an arsenal of skills including nourishing nutrition, movement and meditation, support with community and connection to mind, body and spirit.
I think we managed to capture all those things in the logo I created, and the “thumbnail” banner.
It’s a beautiful message, and I wish them all the best in their endeavour.
