Starting this blog wasn’t so easy. It took a lot of courage to share some of my thoughts and handmade works with others. I have to save up for my domain name. Find time to fix my blog theme, which takes forever. Most of all, post stuff, as much as possible, daily. Never realized it’s too much pressure. It’s like I’m working here. I’m not complaining really. In my three months of blogging, I realized that this is what I love do to. I have so much to learn in this field and I am very willing to know all of it. Continuing this blog is much harder. Just last week I was thinking of shutting it down. I have to admit I had a little help or inspiration for my works and others. For those who felt bad that I use their works as inspiration, I’m sorry. You see, I’m just a beginner. I don’t know how to this and that. So please cut me a little slack. Fortunately, my family and friends encouraged me to excel in what I can do better. That’s why I made up my mind that I wouldn’t give this blog up for some rude comments, doubters and haters. I will try my best, even if I fail and create a huge mess. I know I will eventually pick myself up again. Just like today, I’m still good.

Some of my works are featured on Antropophaige. Anais, a blogger from Paris, talked about how some of Instagrammers inspired her to try hand lettering. I am so honored to be one of her motivators. Check her full blog post here .
Customized work from previous weeks:
Things I did for my friends! Designed a stationery for one friend, which turned out to be pretty cool. Cause I was afraid she wouldn’t like it. (Let me tell you that is my only friend who is very picky and OC when it comes to papers). Also did some lettering on my other friend’s plain notebook. Wrote a phrase she always says. In english it means “Oh really”.
If you’re looking into having some stuff designed by me, shoot me an e-mail. Hope to hear from you guys soon!
We have to admit, we want our lives to have a happy ending. We always aspire for that Cinderella kind of fairytale. Where you will walk in a pathway full of roses leading to a sunset view with the one you’ve always dreamed of waits. But life isn’t supposed to be like that. Our live aren’t fiction nor fairytale books. It’s a real deal. It may look like a movie scene the way you fall in love with that guy but he didn’t fall for you that way. You realized that life is not like the movies. However, it’s not the end of the world. According to a great author of The Lovers Dictionary, David Levithan, everyhing in this world is imperfect and it will always exist in that state.
