My Dad's Treasure

If there's one meal, I always look forward to having with my family, that will be dinner. We always eat our dinner with the latest news (local and abroad), how our day went, my nephew's latest antics and the things we need to consult with each other like my mom's plan on rearranging our furniture in order to accommodate our Christmas tree. We were having a bit of a problem because my dad's 5 watt tube amp can't be removed in its current location. He requested that as long as it's there, he doesn't mind new furniture arrangement.

Handmade Stickers

Ever since I discovered Chotskibelle on Instagram, My memory keeping method change. I started doodling in my planner then sharing it with my friends on Instagram and Facebook. I was having fun. Doing things I love. That's why when someone approaches me if I can make a sticker sheet of my doodles I was over the moon. I never thought someone will love it so much, they want to buy it. Amazing. I still can't believe it.

I choose 3x4 size because it can fit easily on any planner size and circle sticker because it so darn cute right? and I don't need any machine to cut it. I randomly doodle things. no specific theme. Anything that comes out then colored it with Crayola Markers and Zig Clean Color Real Brush. 

here's a closer look. 

Each sticker sheet is different. I really had fun doodling them one by one and look how tiny it is. 

Sometimes, I used it in my own wall calendar of post-it notes. 

Two months ago, I was able to experiment with watercolor. The result is amazing. I was able to achieve the perfect skin tone and hair color I wanted. I also bought a couple of drawing pen for a much visible and clearer doodle lines. 

Some of the sticker sheets I finished was sold out even before I was able to release them publicly. I also sent few of my friends and Pen pals of my sticker samples. I have tons of plans for my handmade stickers and I'm sure you'll be happy to see it soon.

Sweet Music

I've been sick for 3 weeks and wasn't able to go out except when I went to my Doctor. I spent my days in our room just trying to get well. I lay down on our cozy bed for hours and sometimes I wonder what can I do that doesn't require much effort. I'm getting restless and bored. Good thing our neighbor happens to play his system76 and that made me really happy and relax during those times of boredom. 

August Read

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald|376 pages-A Book about two women connected by letters and their love for books. Such an interesting combination that made me more fall in love with reading. Its true books can change people unexpectedly. After reading this, I want to have my own little bookshop (I'm imagining Meg Ryan's The Shop Around The Corner bookshop which is actually base on an actual store Books Of Wonder, New York) and spend my days reading, organizing and interacting with fellow book lovers. I enjoyed knowing all the quirky residents of Broken Wheel, Iowa. An easy feel-good book that I truly had fun reading.
