#Alpha Get To Know Me

For those of you who don’t have Instagram, I’m going to post my pictures from the #alphagettoknowme lettering challenge I participated in.

It began in March and should have been done by April… but I only squeaked in the last one a day or two before May ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I blame travel and moving for the extortionately late finish but hey, at least I did finish it ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ฌ

The point of the challenge was to make you use/practice your lettering, while helping people get to know a little more about you.

Here’s what I came up with ๐Ÿ˜‰

โ€ขA is for Art and how I began creating . Though always interested in drawing/creating, one of the first things I can remember about it, is when Mom would read aloud a chapter book and have me draw what I was imagining the story to look like. Story/bonding/art time, all in one ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€ข

โ€ขWell… this is the second #AlphaGetToKnow me day and it’s ridiculously hard ๐Ÿ˜œ
Tell the ‘Best quality’? About me?! How about I just list the qualities I don’t posses instead? ๐Ÿ˜…
Sharing? Sharing my opinion maybe, but never sharing my food๐Ÿ™ˆ
Compassionate? More so towards animals than humans ๐Ÿฑ
Thoughtful? In ways to avoid human interaction๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป #introvert
The list could go on ๐Ÿ˜

Perhaps though, making use of my imagination is my quality? โœจ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป โ€ข

โ€ขI S M A R B L E A C O L O R ?
#AlphaGetToKnowMe day three,
C is for color! It’s impossible for me to choose one favourite color but the rich hues of golds, emerald blues and marble make me awfully happy๐Ÿ˜โœจ โ€ข

โ€ขDay Dreamer โ€ข (Night Thinker)
#AlphaGetToKnowMe day four (late due to being in Malta) D is for Dream… what’s your dream? โ˜บ๏ธ
My dream was to travel, and then my dream was to go home ๐Ÿ›ฉ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿก
Now I’ve been blessed to have seen over 18 countries, some multiple times and we are in the works of moving back to Canada!
Dreams one and two came true… now I’m thinking, Lamborghini ? ๐Ÿ˜โ€ข

โ€ข…and kittens too ๐Ÿ˜ E is for Excited, here’s my day late post, for day five of the #AlphaGetToKnowMe challenge๐Ÿ–Š
Many things excite me, usually small meaningless things though and then I don’t show my emotions enough over the big things ๐Ÿ˜‹โ€ข

โ€ขClaustro, Ranida & Anthropo { PHOBIA }
Late again on my #AlphaGetToKnowMe post ๐Ÿ˜ฌ but, F was for Fear and I fear little, cramped spaces, frogs and people (introverts you know what I’m saying! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป) and many more non life threatening things. โ€ข

โ€ข#AlphaGetToKnowMe, G is for Game ๐Ÿธ๐ŸŽฎ
I’m not a big game player/sports person, unless advanced napping is a sport ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
But playing (watching it being played) Nancy Drew computer games were some of the more memorable game evenings.
Big bro running the mouse so we didn’t get lost in the rooms, big sis wanting to run it and mom and dad watching from the sidelines.
It was torture waiting for big bro to be back from work since we ‘couldn’t’ play ahead without him ๐Ÿ˜โ€ข

โ€ขH was for Hometown ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿก
I didn’t live in a town really so mine is MacDowall-ish, Saskatchewan Canada โค๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿปโ€ข

โ€ขI is for – inยทspiยทraยทtion
โ€ข the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative โ€ข

My inspiration can come from my own imagination, purely out of the blue, from seeing the amazing art created by talented people here on Instagram or from the artists I know personally ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ญ๐ŸŽจ โ€ข

โ€ขJ was for Job and as I’m currently a housewife, I’ll mention my first memorable paying job.
Which was being paid by my big bro to give him shoulder/neck/back massages๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
K was for Knack and I must have had one for massage if a big bro was willing to pay ๐Ÿ’ต ๐Ÿค”โ€ข

โ€ขI’m going to be later and later posting the #AlphaGetToKnowMe challenges due to being in #southafrica now ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ–‹ L is for Language (and Late๐Ÿ˜‹) and I speak English, though my husband would like me to learn Dutch, since you guessed it, he’s Dutch ๐Ÿ˜‰โ€ข

โ€ขM was for Movie. I didn’t feel like doing an elaborate font since I’d already done this time consuming drawing awhile ago ๐Ÿ˜‰โค
Favourite movie? I have many, of all different genres, but iron man will forever be a top one.. is it because of Iron Man…or Robert Downey Jr? You’ll never know ๐Ÿ˜Žโ€ข

โ€ขThe name Jessica is a Hebrew name, meaning: Rich. God beholds. First coined by Shakespeare for the play ‘The Merchant of Venice’

N was for Name and Jessica is mine ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป (I guess the little flowers could also represent my middle name, Rose ๐ŸŒธ)โ€ข

โ€ขO was for #obsession in the #alphagettoknowme challenge.
Two of my biggest obsessions?
Coffee and napping… which are probably each other’s worst enemy’s ๐Ÿ˜‹โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ›Œ โ€ข

โ€ข๐ŸŒJemstory ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ’Ž #AlphaGetToKnowMe P was for something you’ve done which your ‘Proud’ of and for me, that would be my blog, Jemstory.
It may not be much to some, but for me, sticking to it, every day for over a year and a half makes me proud ๐Ÿค“โ€ข

โ€ขeat well~travel often ๐Ÿ—บ๐Ÿ’ผ๐ŸดQ for Quote… I wanted to do something meaningful and deep but this one just kept coming back to me and it’s kind of been our motto this last year sooo ๐Ÿ˜‰โ€ข

โ€ขR was for relaxing… something I’m probably too good at if I’m being honest (๐Ÿ™ˆ) but I can’t think of much that is more relaxing than a good massage๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™ โ€ข

โ€ขS was for scent/smell and these are a few of my favourites๐Ÿ˜โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿก๐Ÿž๐Ÿ What’s a favourite smell of yours?โ€ข

โ€ขT is for Travel…so here’s a listing of most places I’ve been blessed to be able to go to ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ›ฉ (written on the back of a plane ticket that was lying around๐Ÿ˜‰) โ€ข

โ€ขBe a Flamingoโ€ข ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฆ U was for Unique and really, a person could have an extremely long list of what makes them, them… so instead, here’s something to aspire to ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ€ข

โ€ขV for vehicle… and Lamborghini is my vehicle of choice ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’ฒ What would your dream vehicle be??โ€ข

โ€ขW was for weather and I love the tropical kind! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒค (minus the hurricanes ๐Ÿ˜ฌ) I’ll take any sunshine in general though… what’s your favourite kind of weather?? ๐ŸŒกโ€ข

โ€ขX.X – Victorian slang for double excellent ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿปโšœ๏ธ๐Ÿ–‹ X was supposed to be for ‘X-ray’ but I didn’t want to write that, though I believe I did have a collarbone X-ray as a toddler… I won’t say who was or wasn’t to blame for that high chair incident #parents *cough, ahem!* ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹โ€ข

โ€ขY is for Yummy and I couldn’t begin to list the variety (and quantity) of foods and beverages that I love, so I will take them all! Minus calamari, onions and a few others ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜โ€ข

โ€ขTa-daaa! Finally, over a month later than it should have been, the last #alphagettoknow me word was completed during a lettering class by @diamondandwillow
Z for Zodiac and my sign is Geminiโ™Š๏ธ
It’s almost creepily accurate in its descriptions , minus the whole ‘social butterfly’ part๐Ÿ˜ท
Adventurers of the mind is the twin signs motto, sometimes using witty words, puny jokes and dynamic dialogues other times they are the critic, cold and unemotional, they want to connect but in their own way. They have a youthful exuberance aaaaand you have to look up the rest ๐Ÿ˜œโ€ข

(Special thanks to @diamondandwillow for helping me grow in my lettering abilities ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป)

Hello humans ๐Ÿ˜Š This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life ๐Ÿ˜Š
