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.

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.

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.

My Notes

Wrapping up 2017 and Starting a new chapter. 2018

January 7, 2018

2017 was quite a hard year for us. The kids got sick often and in December we found out my dad might go into open heart surgery. Through prayer and faith and with the greatest doctors at 구리 한양대 병원. It was decided he could get a procedure done where they would insert stents into his blood vessels through his arm.

It was a tough time for me. The beginning of 2017 didn’t start off too well and for it to end like that, it was a tough year overall. I was kind of glad to let it go. But as 2018 approached us, my grandmother (my dads’ mother) passed away and because we weren’t that close to other family members it was a very uncomfortable funeral to attend to. Everything ended up being ok and FAMILY IS FAMILY. Right? We all knew how much we missed each other and how important FAMILY really is.

In 2017 I also found out my aunt had cancer. 2017 was just that KIND of year. It really sucked. Everything was sad and depressing.

So in the beginning of 2018, which is now. I am praying more and I am focusing on my family more. Spending more time with the kids. Working just a little bit. Blogging just a little bit. Spending time with family more is my first priority and then everything else is after that. However, I think God has more planned for me this year. It’s as if he’s saying that 2017 was just a milestone for me, to make me stronger. Now that it’s 2018, he’s got some stuff up his sleeve that he wants to show me one at a time. It’s as if all the worries and fears that I had locked away on one side of my heart is slowly being taken out and being taken care of. I know God has a lot on my plate for me to take down this year. I know he has big things planned for me. I was afraid that one day those plans would be revealed and I wouldn’t be strong enough or brave enough to take them on. But now. I’m ready. I’m ready for my turn. I’m ready for my number now.
