Hi everyone! In this post, I wanna share with you my hobbies,
I love stationeries, I love notebooks, I love papers and I love pens, I love writing.
I used to have a diary when I was young. Then I bought my first ring binder organizer when I was in College. Then I started collecting Starbucks Planner since 2011. When I was pregnant with my 2nd baby year 2015, I was disappointed that I wasn't able to complete the stickers needed to redeem my 2nd Starbucks Planner because I can't have too much coffee. I first got the red which is the pocket size. I am planning to use it to store important information, that's why I still want to get the A5 size to use as my planner/journal. What I did was, I searched Starbucks planner for sale online. I searched and found something around P600 on Instagram. But as I was searching, I saw a lot of hashtags like #PlannerCommunity, #PlannerAddicts, #PlannerNerds, etc.. And when I clicked/tapped them, I was like "Oh wow! These planners are awesome!". And that's how it started.
So here are some of my planners. Mostly decorated with washi tapes, stamps & stickers.

Random Quote in my Hobonichi Techo A6
I started with a generic ring binder from National Bookstore. Then I got ring binders like Kikki K, Websters Pages, Filofax, Paperchase and also Traveler's Notebook like Midori, Chic Sparrow, Handmade by V&C and.. and the Hobonichi A6 and weeks. Was that a lot? Realized that I have a lot while typing this. LOL! 😄
As far as I can remember, I started writing in cursive when I was in kinder 1. I remember asking permission from my teacher if it's okay to write in cursive. Then I remember creating my own Autograph notebook when I was in grade school. I also love copying lyrics from a song hits to my notebook. Just because I wanna write something.
So then when I got hooked on Instagram because of this planners, that's when I also discovered this Calligraphy. I started seeing calligraphy on planners. I've been doing 'Faux Calligaphy' since grade school but that was "Lettering". Then I found a Facebook group called Calligrafriends PH where most members shares their Calligraphy Artwork, some also shares tips & tutorials.
Here are some of my Calligraphy artwork that I wrote on some of my planners/journal. Most of them were lettering/calligraphy prompts from Instagram.

A bible verse in my Hobonichi Techo A6
This is a passport size Midori Traveler's Notebook
I studied Fine Arts major in Interior Design, and most of the time we are using watercolor for rendering Interior perspective, and that's how I develop my love for watercolor.
Here are some of my watercolor artwork.
Most of them are watercolor challenges from Instagram.
Here's one of my watercolor rendering video process posted in my YouTube channel.
