Whoever said creativity doesn’t mean productivity? I say, why not be both? ;)
Here’s something Arriane of Wanderrgirl and I are collaborating on this September. Check back tonight for more details! First come, first served. ;) #DesignHerStory

Here’s something Arriane of Wanderrgirl and I are collaborating on this September. Check back tonight for more details! First come, first served. ;) #DesignHerStory

I’ve been having breakdowns lately, I’ll admit.

With all the priorities I have at the moment (freelancing, keeping my day job, workshop teaching and designing my new line of products) I’m definitely having a hard time keeping life in check, especially my health (physically & mentally).

So yup, this is my calendar for September.

I DIY-ed my attic and made a project calendar because I don’t use my planner anymore and I think I need a huge reminder everytime to get me to work. So this happened, lol.

Who’s excited for September? Um, not me!

The past few weeks, in squares:

I tried practicing gradient watercolor lettering during the holiday break. It was fun!!! Super destressing. Here’s an attempt.

I also met up with one of my readers, Betina, at Mom & Tina’s. I love the food as always. 

The same day, I did an interview for Chinatown TV - it’s airing next Sunday, September 7th at IBC 13, 10AM. Hope you can catch me there!

Work (day job) has been pretty steady. I’m glad I don’t worry much about it when I get home, and though I’m still adjusting to the labor force, I’m super glad the people I work with are very patient with me (newbie - or more like noob-ie lol). 

I also got to teach lettering to my officemates! My bosses are cool, haha. 

Lunch last week at Bag O’ Shrimps, McKinley. A+ interiors and really good seafood - you can’t go wrong.

Also had another workshop for LeBunny Bleu last week at their Glorietta branch. I love this batch of students! Everyone was super game to get crazy busy with lettering.

Well, except for this one student who “learned and run”. It wasn’t very nice of her.

I spent last weekend whipping up my own food (I missed this) and working the whole afternoon on new designs and pending projects. Crazy productive and insanely draining.

We also opened slots for our Share the Love workshop happening next week, in collaboration with Share Movement! We’re super excited to teach our registered students. It’s gonna be extra amazing this time around because it’s for a good cause.

And because my weeks are going to be crazy from this time until - oh, I don’t know, forever? I figured I need to up my caffeine fix. Den, Steff & I visited Epic in Kapitolyo, Pasig. It’s a pretty quaint cafe and it’s perfect for a quiet Sunday meeting. 

So honestly, I’ve no idea what’s going to transpire over the coming days. I’m just praying I get everything done accordingly and still manage to keep my life in check despite all this ~stress~.

Well, how about you? How’s the start of September so far? Hope it’s awesome - and not as crazy as mine, lol.

Work, this weekend

Aside from trying to fix my life, here are some projects I’ve been working on this end of August:

1. I’m doing a project for a collaboration between Purveyr & Local Edition. It’s gonna be awesome, but I’m keeping quiet at the moment.

2. Spent yesterday teaching lettering (for the second time) at LeBunny Bleu - and I finally got a pair for myself! Thank you always to my bosses for having me.

This coming month is going to be pretty intense - I have 2 workshops, 2 bazaars I’m participating in, and lots of freelance projects. I’ll admit it’s been crazy since this year started but I guess this is just a sign that I should really keep pushing and doing my best while I’m at it.

How’s everyone doing today? Hope you’re all well. :)

Bear in a Box Bento Tutorial for Pepper.ph

Here’s a fun collaboration I did for Pepper - lettering work for a series of bento tutorials we are coming up with. Congrats to my amazingly talented bento master friend Jessie for the recipe & video! Thank you as well to Mikka & Mye for guiding us through this project. :) I had an awesome time working on this!

Hope this inspires you to make your own “baon” as a new week (and month) starts tomorrow! :)
