Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

It was exactly four years ago that I made the decision to create an account and post about Jung Ilwoo in Instagram for the very first time. The first image that I posted is what has always been and is my current icon.  The dreamy profile of Ilwoo looking off into the universe in 2012 with a red heart on his shirt.  This is one of my favorite photos of him still to this day.

4 years!  It really has gone by so fast! I am so grateful to GOD for the connection it made possible with Jung Il Woo and how much I have learned during all this time.  This year of Covid 19 and so much human loss and anxiety, I have felt especially thankful for him and all his delights that inspire, nurture and comfort me.

Jung Il Woo I am very thankful to you! Your kindness set so many things in motion inside of me… Your acting and so much of what you did this year related to food and cooking! Convenience Store Restaurant, your Dalgona Coffee world trend, and even your drama Sweet Munchies was related to food. I enjoyed watching you cook so much!!! And the bonus is that I even learned to prepare a few dishes myself.  So delicious!

Ilwoo fans; 1lwoolies?… thank you for being so patient, so kind and supportive of my work and ultimately him.

To show my gratitude, I prepared an Ilwoo gift! I have felt so museum, concert, theater, ballet deprived that I decided to create my very own Nutcracker!  An Ilwoo Nutcracker! I recreated Ilwoo as the different characters of the Nutcracker! The PDF below contains paper dolls of some of the Nutcracker characters in Ilwoo form! So you can create your very own Ilwoo Nutcracker display!  Put on some Nutcracker music and let your imagination take you there… Some characters you can even color in if you wish and put your own picture in them!

I wish you a very Merry Christmas!

May GOD bless you,

Here are two PDFs, one contains all the Ilwoo paper doll characters and the second one the backdrop that you can use to set it up.  After the PDF’s I will post all the graphics I created for Instagram.

Last but not least, I found two great Nutcracker Ballets on YouTube… hard to say which one is better… both productions are WOOnderful!   (There are no advertisements in the first one!)
