Craft Buffet and Card Making Workshop with S Maison Conrad

Free Printable: Filipino Syllables

Learning should be fun. While I know it can be challenging too, I'd like to make it as interesting and as enjoyable as possible especially for Riley. This is also the reason why our house is bursting with children's books of all sorts and everyone at home, including...

How to Pick a Palette for Your Creative Work

Hello Guys! 😊 I always get asked how I choose colors and come up with a palette for my projects. It's on top of the FAQs list alongside (a) what printer do we use, (b) what paper/paint do we use, and (c) when will Riley have a meet and greet? *Really, I'm so thankful...

SM Stationery Art Fest 2018 at SM Makati

Kids these days are so lucky. I feel like I've said this a thousand times but we just never had this much options when it comes to paper, pen and art supplies back in the day. Sometimes, we'd even have to rely on "pasalubongs" from family and friends who visit abroad....

10 Tips on Social Media and Content Creation: Blogopolis 2018

I can remember the first time the hubby and I were asked to speak in front of so many people and the introvert in me was anxious. But at the same time, I didn’t want to pass up on the opportunity to share my insights and learnings with fellow creatives and...

Flatlay 101 + Arts & Crafts Workshop with Canon Printers

We’ve had a series of free arts and crafts workshops and design talks with Canon Printers over the past year. While I’ve shared snippets throughout my social channels, a good number of you who couldn’t come (either because of time or location constraints) wanted to...

Easter Crafts and Treats Workshop with S Maison Conrad

We had quite the sweet and egg-citing Easter weekend filled with all things candy and color at S Maison Conrad Manila as we held an Easter crafts and treats workshop earlier this month! I've always wanted to explore colors with food to the point that I even bought...

At the Heart of Ayala Cloverleaf

We're grateful for the opportunity to spread our love for colors as we painted our third heart and this time for Ayala Malls Cloverleaf! I can clearly remember our first heart in Serendra. (Read about it here.) It was just seven weeks after I gave birth to Riley! I...

The Dessert Museum

When I was 8, I would always wish it would rain chocolates. I didn't realize it would (sort of) come true now that I'm an adult and let me tell you, I think I'm even more excited about it now than I was then! One day, we received a "pink ticket" in our mail. (Yes...

Watercolor and Art Workshop with H&M Kids

I recently had the chance to revisit my childhood: all those years spent tinkering with paper during siesta time, playing teacher and volunteering for bulletin boards all rolled into one as we got to create a backdrop and conduct a watercolor and crafts workshop for...

Ayala Malls Christmas Paper Bags

Hello Guys! I've been working on this project a couple of months back and I was so happy but overwhelmed at the same time! :O  I kept asking "Really?" until I realized I should stop questioning & start working on it.  Haha. Above: One of the early design...

At The Heart of Serendra (Part 2)

I can't believe we just finished painting the heart mural in Serendra. I'm grateful & honored to have been asked to redo our heart.  In case you missed it, you may read about the first abstract heart we painted last February here. I wish I took more photos but the...

5 Arts and Crafts Projects You Can Do with your Printer

I've been missing crafting so much that I noticed in my current design project, I've been including some arts and crafts elements: buntings, paper crafts and cut-outs. So, finally, I gave it a try. I realized, there's more to your printer than just producing the usual...

Being Inspired Versus Copying

This was supposed to be my post the other day but Ponggo told me that it was too frank and that I'm just begging for unsolicited reactions.  This time, it's not even about my work.  Sure, I've seen so many headless Googly comics online (i.e. comics shared and...

Masungi: Lessons I Learned from Making a Storybook

Hello Guys! 😀 How's your week so far? I've been wanting to post this but I just made sure that I'm done with my deliverables so I ended up writing down notes on my sketch book one night just right after finishing a few pages.  The notes here are dated January 3, 2017...

The Design Process

Finally! I can come clean about this: The Design Processs.  I mean, I've been doing design commissions for almost a decade now and I've always wanted to write about all the ridiculous requests for revisions but I can't.  However, this year (until probably early next...

Design Lessons You Can Apply to Your Life

Last February 1, Ponggo & I, together with my sister attended the Graphika Manila 2014 and each time, we always come home refreshed and inspired with all the new lessons that we've learned from designers.  Graphika Manila is a yearly design convention.  As much as...

Thoughtful Presents and Valentine’s Day

They say that presents are a two-way street. They’re an experience for both giver and receiver. As much as receiving them sounds fun, giving them is just as much if not more. But more than the item itself, it’s the thought that counts. Or the effort. I know this...

I Think I am Tired

I Think I am Tired

When we're out of the country, Ponggo's the type who walks like a robot.  As it seems, he never gets tired especially when it's around 10 degrees or lower.  He'd be sweet enough to go with me to art supply shops & bookstores. He'd take me to colorful furniture...

La Union Family Roadtrip

I've been debating with myself whether I should blog or not. After all, I've pretty much documented on video a good chunk of our roadtrip to La Union. 🙂 Then again, I realized, I have so many thoughts as usual that I can't express through moving pictures. 😀 I'm...

The Thing With Power Banks…

I always forget to bring my power bank.  If I ever do, it's the one that I forgot to charge! I thought was the only one then I ran a Twitter survey and got these results: Apparently, there's a lot of us! *Whew!* Hehehe. I don't know why I do this to myself.  I'm also...
