Hello there! Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope you enjoy it here. (I have probably written that line way TOO MANY TIMES, but still. I am grateful.) This is my About page, and what should I put here? Well, obviously, the stuff about me. (I warn you, sarcasm is my second language so good luck with that.)
I named my blog PENCILS AND PALETTES because these are some of my favorite things. Pencils signify writing. Writing gives me a sense of expression. Palettes signify a range of colors. Perhaps through writing, I can express my true colors. Does it sound too artsy? This blog isn’t solely dedicated to the arts though. It’s just that “pencils and palettes” sounds so cute together. (And both words start with the letter P, so how ’bout dat?!) PENCILS AND PALETTES contains some of my experiences worth sharing, my poetry, and some of my art works.
I’m Aundrea Joy C. Levanza, an eighteen year old girl behind PENCILS AND PALETTES. I started this blog last April 2017 during the summer. I was really bored, actually. I thought blogging might help out lessen my boredom. If I’m not blogging though, I spend time surfing the internet, (and when I mean surfing the internet, I mean: scrolling through my Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook feeds) watching movies (there’s an 80% chance it stars Keanu Reeves), reading books (or re-reading books, there is no in-between), drawing, (I enjoy it, but I’m not saying I’m good at it.) writing (by writing I mean: hand-lettering, calligraphy, AND writing prose and poetry), and going out into different cities.
There are various pages here in my blog. Let me briefly explain what you can see there:
HOME PAGE // You can see a short description about what’s up in my blog and also some of my featured blog posts for easier access.
ABOUT PAGE // Errr, well, you’re viewing the page right now. Basically contains a kinda short intro about me and what you’ll be seeing in here.
BLOG PAGE // This page contains each and every blog post I have ever written in my entire life. It contains some of my experiences, random thoughts, and some encouragement for my readers.
ART PAGE // The page where you can view some of my favorite quotes and verses all written beautifully in my calligraphy. Not just calligraphy stuff though, you’ll also see some paintings I’m not shy to showcase.
POETRY PAGE // It contains some of my poetic writings. They’re attempts at poetry, thus can also be called another name – the “poe((TRY)) page.”
CONTACT PAGE // This contains a short form where you can contact me if you want to talk, comment, or suggest something. Go, try it out if you want. I’d love to hear your feedback.
My goal in this blog is to inspire and encourage people through my artworks and my writing. I hope what I write here reaches you and speaks to you in some way. I give all these credit to God though. This blog is all for Him.
