  1. Hi Ate Jof!!!

    I was very happy you to find you here at WP… 🙂

    Follow kita ha? 🙂

    Had a great time reading your posts….very very Jofelyn hihihi

  2. Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. It’s a pleasure to reconnect through wp and have a glimpse of each other’s thoughts after all this years. You’re a grown woman now and as with my sister I can’t fully grasp it. Still thought of you guys as the young girls you were. Love your thoughts and the woman you have become. You rock sister. 🙂

  3. Thank you. Both are good mediums for telling stories. Thanks for stopping by. I had a toy elephant when I was a kid which I loved. I just had to read your story. I think Elly is adorable. I am also an avid reader of children’s book. Those can really be amazing reads. Plus it’s illustrated. 🙂

  4. I think there is a lot to learn and read here on your blog…

    I myself was trying to write a story…but my mind runs on many tracks so mostly I fail…

    or I convert them to poems when I fail to move forward…

  5. Thank you for visiting and liking my blog. I like how your blog’s layout matches your storytelling style. Continue writing and God bless! 🙂

  6. Thanks for following my blog! You blog is wonderful! If ever I get the energy of animating or illustrating, is it alright if I do so? I’m going to hang around a bit and look for that one story that would inspire me to move and draw 🙂

  7. thanks so much for your recent like and for following my India Journal Blog! And another thanks for bringing me here. I look forward to exploring and will first be reading the post about Rothang Pass as I have been there myself on my overland jeep trip to Leh!! Looking forward.

  9. loved your blog & also it’s tag line! i’m so always ready to listen to stories, simply can’t get enough of them! great work in here! 🙂

  10. It looks like you are clearly multi-talented. If I could do illustrations, or artwork of any kind, I would probably be writing children’s books. Have you ever thought of that?

    1. Thank you. 🙂 I would want to write and illustrate a children’s book. I have a special fondness for children’s book. But I am not sure this is the path I want to take with my writing. 🙂

  11. Your blog looks so interesting, I’m definitely going to have a look around!! Beautiful art work, and the way you’ve written even this post, I can tell you’re a born writer!

  12. My dream is to become a master story teller. From whom words will flow smoothly like water from an eternal spring. And everyday of my life I am working on that.==

    I loved this. Keep carving brilliance, Jofelyn, and one day you shall do wonders. 🙂

    Dreams
    are a beautiful bride
    that holds our hands
    to enter a world
    more glorious
    than this one.

  15. Dear Jofelyn, Thanks for visiting Sugarfree Sweetheart because it helped me find you and your adorable blog. I love your paintings, your writing, and your descriptions of Babar. That pic of him with the curtain – our dog Floopy (Great Dane) does that all the time! It’s so funny and cute, you can’t help laughing and then they look at you like you’ve gone crazy! 🙂 I’m so inspired by your blog. Looking forward to your posts.

    1. Hi Priya! Yours was a fun post. Well deserved being freshly pressed. Thank you for visitng my blog as well. Happy to meet another dog lover. 🙂 Babar is a darling and has inspired many posts in this blog. 🙂

  16. You have an interesting blog running here. Loved some of your work. Its very subtle and dynamic . I guess I will be hanging around here a lot. 🙂

  17. Love your work. I’m also from oDesk and saw your forum post there. Can you let me know how much you charge for illustrating a children’s book. I’m writing my first one now and I’m thinking of having you illustrate it before I submit it to publishing houses. Email me please. I’ll hire you in oDesk when we finalize things. T!hanks
