Military Talk: What I’ve Learned In One Year of Military Life

One Year.jpg

Wow! I really cannot believe my love has been in the US Air Force for one year!! I can still remember the day he left like it happened yesterday. That day I was filled with so many questions. Will we last? What am I going to do if I can’t talk to him? Is this going to be too hard for me? 

I’m here to tell my younger self, that yes you CAN do it! Being long distance is tough. It requires a whole lot of effort, and a whole lot of trust.

Military Talk: Our Future Plans

our-future-plansThinking about the future can be very exciting. As of this moment, we have no idea when the next time we’ll be able to see each other is. That can make life a little more difficult. For me, it is nice to have an end date. It’s nice to know how many more days I have to get through until I can see him again. So lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about our future. Thinking about our possible future makes me excited. Right now it’s the only thing I have to look forward to.

Behind The Scenes: Procreate Lettering Video

I know Christmas hasn’t even passed, but I am already thinking about all things Valentines. Valentines is my 2nd favorite season to design for (after Christmas of course!). There are so many different things you can say which makes it exciting. I have just recently gotten an iPad Pro + Apple Pencil, so drawing is much more fun and interesting now. So far I love the iPad Pro. I am able to work on designs in a much easier and quicker way than ever before. Continue reading

Behind The Card: Pt. 6

This card was originally created for my boyfriend (no surprise there, am I right!?!). I wanted to be supportive and be proud of him for passing one of his exams. However, for some reason this card NEVER got delivered to him. It was completely filled with all of these uplifting words, and he never got to read those and feel that encouragement. It kind of made me sad when I found that out. Continue reading

Behind The Card: Pt. 5

I Believe In Us

There comes a point where the distance will really start to get to you and your significant other. There comes a point where you want to give up because it would be “easier” even though you know that isn’t true.

Behind The Card: Pt. 4

This was my very first long distance card!! Before heading off to boot camp, my boyfriend moved home leaving us 45 minutes away. It was kind of a warm up for this whole long distance thing. I was starting to feel the effects of the distance. I  made this to let him know I was struggling. Before he left, he was only 15 minutes away from me. He was 5 minutes away from my work and I would always go over after my shift. So we were spending a lot of time together each week. That’s probably why this process was more difficult, but I was still happy that he was in the same state as me. Continue reading
