Freebie from Let’s Make Greeting Cards


Artisan Life, Happenings

I mentioned last week that I was part of a Design Team of Let’s Make Greeting Cards. And so, one of the perks of being on a DT, {which I’m completely overwhelmed} is Rochelle will send out some materials for all of us to work on with. Cool huh? And these are the things I got… […]

I was featured in Edge Davao Newspaper


Artisan Life, Happenings

Yesterday, I was featured in our local newspaper Edge Davao {wow, seriously on a roll this week, lol}. I can’t hardly explain how happy and giggly I was when I saw my photos on a colored full-page. All thanks to Meg Sta. Ines for the beautiful write-up. You can read more of the article here. Truthfully, I’ve been dreaming […]

Resource: Cath Kidston Desktop Wallpaper


Resources

Few weeks ago, Jaden my 3gs iphone crashed for no reason at all… I was just updating the software and boom! Had software problems since then… and now it’s totally busted. So I was a feeling low thinking I can’t use my other Cath Kidston iphone case, and I won’t be using an outdated vintage iphone […]

DIY: Doily Box


DIY

As I was cleaning my newly repainted room, I find my things unorganized and messy, as always. But if possible I wanted to keep my room free from all the clutter whether visible in the bookshelf or inside my closet. Then I’ve thought of using old boxes to organized some of the items but I […]

Beach Bum Mixtape


Mixtapes

I want to believe I’m a music lover, but I think the music doesn’t love me back, lol. Seriously, I’m not good with it, I can’t memorize lyrics, not that familiar with titles and artists, but I try. Then I got curious with this mixtape thing, so I decided to create my own and I […]

Custom Printed Coasters


Design Projects, Weddings

One of the challenging thing for me is to play and maximize the use of paper materials… I’ve been thinking on how paper can be more practical, useful and sturdy all at the same time. Then while I was drinking my coffee and used my corkboard coaster, I’ve thought why not try a printed coasters instead. […]

I have crafter friends now


Crafting + Workshop

It’s almost been 2-weeks now since I went to my very first craft soiree. It may sound so corny and cheesy but I truly feel so lonely when I got back to Davao. I’m back to my work, and no more chit-chats with friends about crafts. Oh how I miss them and that crafternoon. Anyway, […]

Newly painted room


Artisan Life, Happenings

Few weeks ago, I’ve decided to give my room a little make over. Okay, “little make-over” may be a little underrated because I actually repainted it. Yup! I got bored and irritated with my bright funky room, and felt like it’s not my thing. So since I was on a tight budget, I decided to do […]

Craft Disneyland


Artisan Life, Travel w/ Me

I just came back yesterday from my best Manila trip ever and still dreaming about it actually. I need to make different posts for my trip because I don’t want to overwhelm you with so much photos. So, the craft soiree was a success but before that day came, I had a great time spending it […]
