Kumiko pattern test. The satisfaction of the perfect fit is awsome. The big grid uses the same assembly method. I don't know if I'll use this pattern (There is to much Choice) but I l'industrie of liking IT.
Most recently, I embarked on a project with Mr A, project was a complete flop
Mr A always thought we couldn't pull through, he kept on bringing in ideas that were not in line with the project, impatience etc, he eventually pulled out
I embarked on the same project with Mr B (Very optimistic patient guy). Project became a success.... Mind your association my friend

Vistas las dudas que hay sobre esta técnica de tatuar, os explico brevemente para quien le interese: 🤓
El handpoke básicamente consiste en realizar el tatuaje a mano, sin el uso de máquinas. El proceso y los cuidados asépticos son los mismos, pero la aguja no va impulsada por la fuerza de una máquina, sino que a mano se van haciendo puntos para dar forma a las líneas del diseño. Obviamente es una técnica más lenta al ir punto por punto, pero tiene el beneficio de que es menos agresiva para la piel. El proceso es mucho menos doloroso y cicatriza mucho más rápido.
Para aquellos que tienen miedo del dolor, o de la cicatrización, esta técnica podría ser más adecuada.
Se podría decir que es una manera más artesanal de tatuar, y de hecho es como se tatuaba antiguamente. Pero sí, se usa tinta especial para tatuar y agujas de tatuar esterilizadas, y por tanto es como un tatuaje normal en el sentido de que es permanente. 😌
Por otro lado, aunque el proceso sea más largo personalmente creo que es más bonito por aquello de retomar el tatuaje como ritual (como en sus orígenes ancestrales, indígenas y orientales). 💫✨
Os dejo por aquí el último tatuaje que he hecho 😁 (todos los que estoy publicando en esta cuenta son hechos por mí 🤗).

.....SHADES OF SECRET 2......
When I wake up, the first thing I feel is soreness. My body feels stiff and the pounding in my head is just hard to ignore. My hand reaches the back of my head where the pain is acute and I feel dried blood which instantly reminds me of being hit in the head. God knows how long I've been senseless! I hazily sit up holding my head with one hand and take the surrounding in. As much as my sense is providing, it's seems like a room, no wait, it's an old....my heart drops when I turn to my right to find Lexi a few feet away, tied to a chair. Oh my god! I frantically crawl to her and hold her face in my hands and shake it lightly in an attempt to wake her up. "Lexi, come on. Wake up!" Her being unresponsive starts to panic me. But I can't lose sense of control now. I can't. Collecting myself, I check her to be sure if she was being hit anywhere on her body or not, most importantly in the head like me but thankfully she wasn't. But then why isn't she getting back to her sense? This isn't good. I have to bring her back to her sense. Even though hundred of questions about this situation are raising in my head, my main focus of attention is Lexi and taking her out of here. I start to untie the rope around her wrist but interrupted by a harsh grip on my hand.
"Not so easily, Scarlett."
My heart stops and my blood runs cold. Shiver runs down my spine by dreadful memories being brought back with the familiar voice. This can't be happening. No! No! This can not... it can not be him. I'm so much scared to look up and find it to be him. God, please, don't do this to me.
"What's wrong? Surprised?"
There's no doubt now that it's him.
He's back. He's back.
I feel my body paralyzed knowing this is it. This is the end. He has found me and this time he'll take the one thing that he's been after, from last six years. My life.
"Why so surprised, Scarlett?" I'm being pulled up to stand on my feet and that's when I meet two blue eyes filled with the rage I've never seen losing its intensity. Now I'm face to face with the man I'm the most terrified of. Steven James.

This is one of those "in the meantime" type of things. My page is primarily about the tote bag designs, but if you're unfamiliar with my posts.. that's not the only artwork I produce. So, this post goes out to my beloved, battered and worn palette! (However, I do have some totes to be completed on the horizon :) yay!). Anyway, I'm so delighted to be starting a new series. My last series- Fact vs. Truth: The Ineveitable Race http://tessa-oh.blogspot.com/2017/07/myseries.html?m=0 took 2 years to complete. I'm reaaaally hoping this one won't be as long, but ya never know. I'm also not going to disclose the description until its completion (that way I can force myself to stay diligent). Diligence is the key factor to winning. Often times we let our goals, to-do lists, and projects pile up so high, we then want to rush to get them done. Makes me think of one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit.. Temperance; in its basic meaning, self control. Self control will dominate and defeat ANY obstacle in life. We often think of self control associated with anger or alcohol consumption, but it doesn't have to be so deep. There's tons of tiny idiosyncrasies we have attached to our personalities that having temperance is good for. Temperance powers diligence. Temperance can kick procrastination in its rear, and can also steady those urges to rush through things. I've learned that using temperance is all about submitting to God's Holy Spirit within me. Through prayer, reflecting on His Holy Word, listening for His still small voice, or even just embracing the tranquility of His presence, those anxiety flurries tend to vanish away. With all things be patient. Rushing will leave things lacking. Be diligent, just keep pace. Proverbs 4:23- Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. P.S. As long as you are breathing, its not too late to repent, make those necessary changes, go to Jesus the Christ. He is knocking at the door of your heart. You feel it deep down, don't ignore Him today, answer. #artist#artwork#artisttypethings#oilpainter#newpainting#palette#newseries#newpaintbrushes#newcanvases#patience#diligence#temperence#holyspirit#glorytogod

Weekend Love Energy #pickacardreading and #reveal
Group 1.:The person you're thinking of may be a crush, current or past lover or friend. This person gives you warm feelings and butterflies. You may be distant from them right now. You may also be looking for a sign to return to them and start something new or spice up things in your existing relationship. ★
This is someone you you truly care for or may have questioned the depth of your feelings for. You are wondering if this is a soulmate and if destiny is FINALLY having its way in some cases. The answer is YES! Go be in love. And don't worry about external opinions or ideas. The gift of love is on the other side of releasing and facing your fears!
Group 2.: There may be someone in your life you have been having a difficulty breaking free from. This person may be your current or former spouse or significant other, maybe even a child's parent. Know that things will work out in your favor. Especially if you have to go to court. Things will turn out fair. Everyone will be happy at the end of the day.
Others may be dealing with someone who has or had an addiction problem which has caused negative effects on the relationship. There may be a chance to save it if recovery and help are handled with patience, love, and care. Others may be reflecting and celebrating sobriety with loved ones. Others are breaking ties and cycles with whom and what binds them. Depression, alcohol, unhealthy sexual behaviors, etc., are all being reflected upon and healing has begun. Second chances are here.
Love, Jax 💛💜✨
Everytime I learn something new or make progress on something I stop to reflect on where I've come from.
So heres a little brain dump if you feel like reading 😊🙏
Reflection rarely makes me feel sad, it's always filled with gratitude & joy 💖
If somebody told me a year ago I'd be able to do this on the rings, or headstand with no support or any of the other amazing physical & mental things I've learnt I would have laughed & called bullshit.
This time last year i still had an unhealthy relationship with food, alcohol, drugs, exercise, other people & mostly with myself. 2 years ago I was even worse
I knew I had to change it but I didnt know how. 💖
With the help of some incredible people I started to face my demons head on.
I looked deep inside myself & I met myself where i was at.
I spoke to myself with the same care & attention & love that I show to my kids & my friends
I decided it was time to love myself. Because after all the only person you have to live with for the rest of your life is you.
I struggle with the line between self love & narcissism. Sometimes I feel like loving myself is vain & being proud of myself makes me too into myself 🙈
Its definitely a good idea to check yourself regularly. But also knowing that you are a good person & you don't hold yourself higher than anyone else then you're doing ok
Over the years I've been my own worst enemy but I blamed everyone else & I didnt see the massive role I played. 💖
Now I'm learning to love myself.
I'm learning to look after myself mentally, emotionally, physically & spiritually.
And it's awesome 😎🙏💖🌟

I took this picture a few days ago. I love looking at the sky. It bring me back home. It reminds me to be still and enjoy life. Reminds me to focus on the beautiful things our mother earth has to offer us. The beauty in everything will come from within. Only you can see what this world has to offer. Sometimes we forget to check in with ourselves. We stay focus on the big stuff. The finances, work, our relationships. But what are you doing to keep you up, to really bring you back home. Find a moment during your day to stay still and breathe. Sometimes that's all our soul needs. Find peace in the little things. Like, going for a walk, looking at the sky. So many things that are at arms reach. We just have to be willing to stop and take a moment for ourselves. When was the last time you looked up at the sky? 💙🦋🌎💧
My current view.
Veira has Bronchiolitis. Vivienne and Sienna just came down with bad coughs too. I know, I know “screen time” but they’re so uncomfortable, clingy and on edge with each other this is what works right now.
They get so territorial of me when they don’t feel good it’s such a hard feeling when they all want to be held by their mama at the same time. They push each other out of the way and have mini meltdowns if someone else tries to climb in my arms too. Someone is touching me, climbing my leg, sitting on my foot or jumping up and down with outstretched arms for most of the day. Ever tried changing a poopy diaper with one monkey climbing on your back, one trying to get into your lap and running off with the wipes OR trying to swipe the dirty diaper. Good times.
It’s definitely challenging having three babies at the same age who don’t understand and get into the same mischief together all at once. Just trying to conquer toddlerhood as best I can giving them the grace they deserve as they figure out their world. It can be incredibly overwhelming on a normal day but when they’re sick you can find me on my knees asking God for ALL the extra patience he can send my way.
Obviously I love them dearly and want to be their comfort and help them to feel better but I think I’ve found there is such thing as a giving threshold that when you reach it you start to go a lil cray cray aka: mom snaps. I’m not proud about getting overwhelmed and raising my voice to my little sick babies who just want their mama but I’m human I guess and it happens.
My three babies are a blessing and I’m very grateful. That doesn’t alter the fact that having triplets is hard. Very hard. We dress up a lot and try to do fun things but there’s a lot of life that’s lived behind each of these photos. Anyways I really hope people that see my page know that, I feel like it should be understood but I’ll throw out this reminder; mommin ain’t easy no matter how happy anyone’s IG looks. I remind myself of that all the time. Every mom has hard days, hard nights and is doing the best she knows how... so here’s to allowing myself/yourself some grace on those extra trying days. 🤍
If your life isn’t moving in the direction you want it to go, or if you feel overwhelmed by everything on your plate, then this caption is for you.
Gratitude is the mother of virtues.
But what does it actually mean to be grateful? Clearly, it isn’t writing down a list of what you’re grateful for once per year. And even though that is a helpful exercise, there’s a lot more to it, although it isn’t complicated.
Fundamentally, gratitude is intended to change three things:
Every morning, you have the opportunity to trigger a mental and emotional state that sustains throughout the whole day.
If you start your day right, you’ll be shocked at the momentum you can create.
Even more though, if you give yourself some space — I’m talking 5–30 minutes — of strategic gratitude and visualization, then you literally prime your brain to operate at a higher level throughout the day.
You are the one who determines how well you’ll do, regardless of the circumstances you are in. As your past, your circumstances are subjective, not objective. Your circumstances are a “meaning” with which you decide what to do.
