Day 18-28: February Calligraphy Challenge

CL's birthday is near and that's what makes me busy now. Added by her upcoming monthly exams, I have so little time to even pick a pen and practice calligraphy. I'm just glad that I made it up to the 20th day of the daily challenge. But that doesn't mean that I just have to leave it like that. Of course I have to make up for the remaining 8 days.

Cheers for the wonderful February #HappyLetteringChallenge!

Day 18 - Massage

Day 19 - Compromise

Day 20 - Friendship

Day 21-28
Gaze - Fixed - Hold - Snuggle

Day 11-17: February Calligraphy Challenge

I love to learn to doodle wild flowers, leaves, and succulents. This week, I tried to doodle one for my day-11 entry and I actually love it. I'd like to do more of this, but first.. I need to practice.

Another new thing I did was using a pencil for my day-16 entry. I'm inspired by @minortismay, I love her feed and I love how she only uses a pencil to create such a wonderful calligraphy piece. Proving that you don't need expensive inks, brush pens, and watercolors to learn and hone your skills, unless you're already a PRO on that field. This is exactly my principle when it comes to calligraphy.

Here's this week's #HappyLetteringChallenge.

Day 11 - Hope

Day 12 - Assure

Day 13 - Love

Day 14 - Valentine

Day 15 - Comfort

Day 16 - Squeeze

Day 17 - Giggle

Day 04-10: February Calligraphy Challenge

I'm currently drawn to floral and foliage. I even wanted to learn to doodle and watercolor wild flowers, succulents, and leaves. I just don't know where to to start and how to start. Although, I've tried to make a few pieces, I know I still have a long way to go.

That's why I used nature, floral, and pink for this month's inspiration. Enjoy!

Day 04 - Embrace

Day 05 - Smack

Day 06 - Caress

Day 07 - Butterflies

Day 08 - Smooch

Day 09 - Glance

February Mini Haul: The Crafters Marketplace

For a crafter like me, there's nothing else that could make my heart giddy than a parcel filled with craft materials; whether it's as small as a paperclip or as big as a 12x12 paper it will never fail to make me smile.

So here's for my February mini haul featuring The Crafters Marketplace.

Studio G Rubber Stamps | Daiso Watercolor Palette
Creative Year Bella Flora Mini Planner by Recollections | Aleene's Tacky Glue | We R Memory Keepers Washi Chomper 

Aleene's Tacky Glue
• Php250.00 • 
I decided to buy one because I know using a hot glue ain't enough for my paperclips, hair clips, and fabric flowers. If I want to sell them with great quality, I have to make sure the adhesive that I'm going to use could hold up the fabrics on its place for a long period of time. And I know this all-purpose adhesive is perfect for such projects.

Creative Year Bella Flora Mini Planner by Recollections
• got this at a discounted price of Php500.00, regular price is around Php800 •
Last year's planner was all made by hand - cut, lined, painted, and designed all by hand. It's satisfying to know that I get through 365 days by doing a handmade planner. But honestly (though it's economical that way) it is very time consuming; especially if you don't have all the time for yourself. That's why I gave in and said yes to this planner. Although I'll be missing my ring binder Webster's Planner, I know I'll be loving this one. I'll have to get used to using spiral-bound planner for now, good thing that large gold spring rocks!

We R Memory Keepers Washi Chomper
• Php750.00 •
Of all the WRMK tools, this Washi Chomper caught my attention. I play with bows, ribbons, and fabrics, and if there's one thing that I'm having a hard time with, it's that perfecting the V-shaped ribbon ends. And when I say perfect, that means all the pieces should have the same size, same measurement, and same cut. I know for sure WRMK Washi Chomper will help me with it - not only for washi tapes, but also for grosgrain ribbons, fabrics, and papers as well.

Daiso Watercolor Palette
• Php80.00 •
This is perfect for storing my watercolors from their tubes. Though I already bought a palette perfect for traveling from, this one is suitable for bigger brushes - it's less messy! *grin*

Studio G rubber stamps
• freebie, yay! •
I'm a late bloomer when it comes to stamps (rubber or clear), so these freebies from TCM's busy bee melted my heart. Thanks again for the stamps, Tracy!

There you go! So if you're looking for We R Memory Keepers craft tools, sticker and disc bound planners for memory keeping from MAMBI The Happy Planner, washi rolls and pretty spiral bound planners by Recollections, Cricut machines, and all your crafting needs, please visit The Crafters Marketplace.

So here are my first 3 days of the challenge of #HappyLetteringChallenge.
