Newest Pokemon Stationary Craft

During the past year I’ve been getting into stationary and I just can’t seem to get enough. I find at times I find it that is worst than crafting supplies since they are much smaller and at first you don’t think you have enough. Right now I have to tell you, I do have enough, to make my newest Pokemon stationary craft.

Newest Pokemon Stationary, Pikachu, stationary, paperclips, DIY, crafts, key cap,

I am always looking at all the wonderful crafter’s making cute paperclips but as much as I like beautiful things, I also like geeky things. At the moment I don’t see many people making geeky stationary. It is how my newest Pokemon stationary craft was born.

I went to  a Japanese store and while browsing I found these cute Pokemon key caps/covers and as soon as I saw them it came to me. I purchase three of the original Pokemon, Pikachu, Charmander and Bulbasaur. Pokemon was popular when I was a kid and now that I am an adult my children get to enjoy them as well. We like to play Pokemon go when we go on walks and they have a fun time trying to catch them all! haha.

I would have to say Pikachu is my favorite Pokemon but I really wanted to catch a Snorlax and tonight while writing this, I did! I was just like a little kid when I found one! My hubby just looked at me and smiled. He likes it when I act like a little kid at times since its a rare occurrence . Which is your favorite Pokemon?

 

I have a video right below where you can see the tutorial!  Give the newest Pokemon Stationary craft a try and hope you enjoy it.

Keep playing!

Learning Calligraphy

I am the first to tell you that my handwriting is not the best. My hubby always has difficulties reading my grocery list. So I decided that this year I wanted to give a couple of new hobbies a try, like I don’t have plenty already, hehe. The first thing that came to mind was calligraphy. I have always been interested in calligraphy but never really had the opportunity to try it until recently when a workshop came up near me. I was so excited and I am so glad that I took the leap. Its so much fun learning it, I was scared at the beginning because I am left handed and its always a challenge doing something but I never really let it hold me back or think about it really. 
I was excited to learn that my teach was left handed and she did beautiful calligraphy very easily so I knew with much practice I can be good as well.  Hopefully by the end of the year I will better handwriting.  We learn a very flowing and not so structured calligraphy which is fun for Valentines’s day. 

Here are some of the beautiful things I was in class.
Some of the girls I got to share this journey in calligraphy.

Our wonderful teachers!


What new hobby will you try?
