Growing up so fast

March 17, 2018

My little Tyler.

My third child.

My love.

Is growing up so fast. Almost too fast for me to catch up. Thinking that after this little baby grows up, there won’t be another baby in my life makes me sad. After this little one loses the “BABYNESS” and BABY SCENTS that he brings to us, he’ll be a toddler and then a child. Just like Josh, just like Andrea, Tyler will also grow up and then, I won’t be able to turn back time to smell his little head or his soft little tummy.

It seems like he’s just growing up way way too fast.

And when he looks at something like this, it makes me feel as if I need to go make another baby.

Although that’s not going to happen.

I wish I could endure this phase. I wish I could make time flow just a little slower than it’s going now.

JellyCat Bunnies

March 5, 2018

$29 dollars for a bunny isn’t the ideal amount for a doll. For me, its a bit too much.

When I had Josh, my friend had sent us the smallest sized JellyCat bunny for Josh. Josh’s little bunny is 7 years old. Just like Josh is.

When we had Andrea, another friend of mine gave us a white bunny for Andrea.

Then other friends gave us other bunnies as gifts for the kids. So when we had Tyler. A bunny was a must.

My Notes Notebook

And when the kids sleep…

February 22, 2018

It’s time for me to get my practice going.

So, it’s been really hard for me to get my own style figured out. I like the strokes of the lowercase d when writing with this brush pen. However, it was hard for me to space my letters out in the way I wanted them to look. I think my normal handwriting was causing me to write like that without knowing.

Another thing that was really hard for me was to get my strokes even. I would get a slight rigid side on the right side when I do my down strokes. That was something hard to get fixed. I honestly don’t know if I’m holding the pen wrong or if it’s just the control of the pressure in the stroke.

Heck, what the hell am I talking about right now. I guess I just need more practice.

I haven’t been able to hold a brush pen in five days already. I’ve just been so busy with the kids and work, that it’s been a crazy week.

I found that I like the small brush pens more than the dual brush pens. The duals look nice if I write big but if I just write in the notebooks, they look like I practiced while being drunk or something.

I also like the colored brush pens but I’m going to wait until my writing is a lot more better and solid before purchasing any colored brush pens.

5 Websites for Beginners Learning Calligraphy

February 19, 2018

There are so many websites and youtube videos that teach you how to start with brush lettering and the basics of calligraphy.

I wanted to learn how to master brush-lettering and handwriting so that I can make my own cards and gift tags.

That was the first reason I started to search and google brush-lettering basics.

But while going through many sites and videos online, I ran into so many that didn’t show me the basics.

I didn’t know why my writing wasn’t turning out like the videos and why it was so hard for me to get the smooth lines that everyone else was writing.

I was hard enough finding the brush pens that everyone was using (Tombow dual brush pens and the Fudenosuke pens) in Korea but getting the lettering to go in the direction I wanted to was even harder!

So then I started to REALLY do my searching. I picked sites and people that had the specific styles I wanted to be able to do too. Then I narrowed it down to the FREE practice sheets and REAL basic, and when I say basic, I mean literally BASIC BASIC tutorials.

So if you’re in Korea and want to purchase a TOMBOW pen like me, go here.

And for the sites with good tutorials and practice sheets.

Josh the photographer

February 7, 2018

Just the other day, we played “mom’s photography studio” in our room. I put up the white backdrop and took some pictures of the kids.

They love to play this game and so do I. we take pictures of each other and they turn out really nice sometimes.

It’s usually the kids that get their pictures taken but this time, I wanted to do something different. I wanted to get my picture taken too.
