DIY: Notebook


DIY

Few more days and it’s back to school already. Somehow, I miss the feeling of being excited every first day of school. New classmates and teachers, then you get to have new uniform, bag, shoes, and school supplies. Here’s a two way DIY notebook for Lieu magazine. This will probably help you boost that excitement and creativity […]

Rapunzel’s Tower


Design Projects, Kids

Character themes are not my forte. That’s because I don’t really know how to draw them. So I try to look for something else that’s related to that character instead. Once in awhile I have clients who wanted characters for their themes. Like one mom wanted a Rapunzel theme invitation for her little girl’s 7th […]

DIY: Pantry Labels


DIY

I don’t spend much time in the kitchen but there are times when I check our kitchen to look for certain items I see cluttered jars or containers that I can’t distinguish what exactly it is. Or perhaps, I just want to make an excuse to put labels on everything. Either way, it makes our […]

Shop: New online shop


Shop

Since Multiply announced that they will closed down anytime soon, I got a little panic thinking where to put all my products now. I’ve considered few platforms like Storeenvy, Bigcartel and Myshopify. However, I have to weigh some factors like the use of peso currency, transaction fee and the yearly cost on my end. Believe […]

Yellow Hauz: TWG Tea


Yellow Hauz

I have this craze over TWG tea since last January. I don’t know why but maybe because I just love how they brand their tea. Simple, elegant and old looking that simply says, classic. But it was only last week when I had a chance to try it out. I tried the Moroccan Mint, which is based on Green […]

Hello Kitty Bookplate


Design Projects, Fun Stuff

I remember the days when I used to put bookplates for my textbooks and even notebooks. That’s actually where I started my very amateur graphic design by using Paint {I used the older and simpler version}. Then I started my custom-made sticker business with college friends. Oh those where the days of clipart, haha. When I […]

DIY: Fabric Taped Padlock


DIY

When I packed my things from my last trip, I figured out I lost my luggage padlock again. For the nth time, I bought a new one again. I guess the store didn’t have a price tag sticker, so they wrote the price on the padlock using a black marker. It was so ugly. Seriously, […]

Instagram Sunday

The year was really good to me… I travelled to different places every month to have a little vacation with family or friends. This month was really surprising because I never thought it would pushed through. But it did, so I just came from Okinawa, Japan with Green Tomato team to attend a wedding and to help […]

Yellow Hauz: White Chocolate Coffee


Yellow Hauz

One of my favorite coffee in Yellow Hauz is the Café White Mocha. This month, we’re featuring it together with a blended version. Early morning calls for a hot coffee and a blended drink for an afternoon craving. What other way to beat the heat but to have it with white chocolate and coffee, right?

Menu Card and Placecards


Design Projects, Weddings

I didn’t realize until last month that most of my friends was born April. And one of them is Chiche, a friend who’s like an adopted sister to us and whom we met accidentally but truly meant to be. Anyway, she had a french themed dinner party in our favorite french restaurant, Bon Apetit. Of course, […]

Shop: Pens and Notebooks


Artisan Paperie

When I heard that Multiply is closing down, I was shocked and sad about this news. I really thought they were able to pull through the marketplace concept and that they were known for that by now. Well, there’s nothing much we can do but to look for another platform that offers the same service. […]

29th this year…


Artisan Life, Happenings

Celebrated my 29th birthday last month… Normally, I’m too lazy too organize my own party plus it’s a bit expensive. However, this year I did. Few reasons came to mind that calls for a celebration. Again with the impromptu decisions, everything was just prepared few days before and the rest was DIY‘ed. For someone who makes […]

Seriously, it’s May already? I really can’t believe it, few more weeks and it’s already half of the year now. I’m happy though, I’ve been productive for the past few weeks. I guess, since I’m back to crafting, it’s like an energy booster for my brain. Next week, I have more plans and deadlines as […]
