Hi everyone! I recently added my profile on my blog! Check out how Momsterpiece started and the story of my journey!
A proud mom of two and a wife of a web developer, I juggle my family time and my crafting.
Just like most moms, I found myself documenting the milestone of my firstborn and that led me to digital scrap booking. This quickly turned into a passion and later, Momsterpiece came into being.
Afterwards, I discovered there’s more to digital scrapbooking and so I bought my first cutting machine. Then, my second child was born. I became busy with my kids, but I made sure I get to practice my crafting skills. What better way to practice crafting than in my own kids’ parties?
So kiddie party invites became my “specialty” thanks to my being a mom. I personalized every project I make, bringing my best effort to meet each client’s demands.
As I continued my paper crafting, I got more acquainted with designing and different types of fonts. I then decided to create my own one. Thus, I tried calligraphy.
It was Lai Reyes-Geluz (Made by Lai) who became my first mentor in calligraphy. I learned the basics of pointed pen and brush calligraphy from her. Her lovely calligraphy style looked so effortless to make and that really had me in awe. I practiced a lot and decided to explore calligraphy even more. Thanks to Sienne Lim (Inkcatcher) and her elegant swirls, I somehow managed to grasp the techniques in flourishing.
I also attended Watercolor Doodle Workshop from Tippy Go (Googley Goeys), where I learned to paint with watercolor, which would perfectly helped me in my brush calligraphy.
Also, when Master Penman Michael Sull visited Manila in April 2016, I grabbed the chance to join his workshop. Truly, it was a chance in a lifetime and I felt happy and honored to have met the guru.
with my mentors, whom I’m so thankful for!
