Not A Creative Talk


Artisan Life, Crafting + Workshop, Happenings

What’s your greatest fear? Mine is public speaking. Statistic says public speaking is one of the greatest fears. Where 74% suffer from performance anxiety. And I’m one of those 74%. When I was in college, I really wanted to conquer that. So I joined Toastmasters. It gave me butterflies in my stomach the whole day […]

A little recap of what’s happening


Artisan Life, Happenings

Just like that… 4th quarter of the year is finally here… and it’s approaching like a bullet train. Reminds me of our Shinkansen experience from Osaka to Kyoto. Where we weren’t really able to fully enjoy the ride because we were still so amased then suddenly we’ve already arrived. It was that quick. That’s how […]

Artisan Paperie’s 8th Anniversary


Artisan Life, Crafting + Workshop, Happenings

The last time I wrote about this was few years ago. We turned 3 and 4 then. Now, it’s Artisan Paperie‘s 8th Anniversary. 8 years! I’ve been in the creative business, officially. When I had the courage in opening a design studio and craft shop 8 years ago. Wow! Can you believe that? I’m still having a hard time believing it. Every year, […]

On blogging and Instax Camera Giveaway


Artisan Life, Happenings

Admittedly, I’m a very lousy blogger since this year started (It’s been years, who am I kidding?). To be honest though, I quite miss it. I’m not really a writer yet somehow writing has been part of my creative process. I like writing on my journals and I blog what I do, thinking someone might be inspired as […]

Davao Needs More #DigitalInfluencers


Artisan Life, Happenings

Davaoeños were shocked with what happened last night. For those who were not informed yet, there was a bomb incident in Roxas Night Market. And as of last night, there were already 10 casualties and 60 injured. I normally don’t post issues like this but Roxas Night Market is somewhat home for me. Wacky and I […]

Painting and Fashion Inspiration


Artisan Life, Happenings

I haven’t been painting for weeks now and I realised that whenever I paint, it keeps my creativity flowing. So yeah, since I haven’t done it for quite some time, I’m experiencing a minor creative block. I’m supposed to submit a logo design yet I cannot come up with anything. Last night, I pushed myself to […]

Busy like a bee…

Seriously, it’s already February? I haven’t felt January yet. Although, I did feel it in a form of Sinulog, workshops and a little beach on the side {Definitely what I love about Davao. Well in the Philippines actually. It’s always summer}, meeting with clients and hanging out with friends. January is indeed the busiest month […]
