ABCs Book Challenge: Experience & Entries

The choices we make everyday ranging from the most simple to the most risky, can lead to many possibilities that we knew nothing about. Opening doors for new opportunities, second chances and privileges that we don’t expect and jumping in and making most of these things began from the conscious decision to at least try.

Last June/July of 2015, I visited Booksale one of my go-to bookstores to just look around, unwind and if I got lucky that day to find a certain book included in my booklist, I would buy. Upon entering the store a book entitled  ‘The ABCs of Hand Lettering’ caught my attention. the artsy craftsy spirit in me woke up. The next thing that happened, I bought the book. The reason: I was interest on what I could learn. Since then, I became one of Abbey’s fans, social media follower and blog reader. When she announced that she’ll be hosting a lettering challenge, I’m one of those people who  highly anticipated it but after the day the first challenged was announced, I was thinking twice whether I should join or not. lol I joined the lettering challenge and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. 🙂

The ABCs Book Challenge was fun, exciting and truly a learning experience. I learned a lot about the basics of hand lettering, how to photograph my artworks  and discover my taste and preferences when it comes to choosing styles and colors. It was a 21-day challenge divided into 3 days per week  (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays). Submission of entries on Instagram or Twitter were made before the theme for the next challenge is announced at 8pm. Abbey also gave some tips and advice and also hosted giveaways during and after the challenge.
