Craft Buffet and Card Making Workshop with S Maison Conrad

I remember as a kid how often I would create cards for my parents for special occasions. As I grew up, these turned into card-hunting and I would spend all night thinking about what to write. Years passed and then it turned into sending GIF's & stickers into our...

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

Easter Crafts and Treats Workshop with S Maison Conrad

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

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...

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...

Colorful Days with Pens & Notebooks

Hello Guys! Hm...So what have I been up to lately?  As I'm writing this, it's still Ponggo's birthday.  I've been very consistent with putting up a social networking ready birthday greeting but today, hormones just took over my life spending most days nursing the late...

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...

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...

At the Heart of Serendra

Last Valentine's Day, we were tasked to paint a huge heart in the middle of Serendra.  Halfway through, here's one of the sides with a bit of splatter.  It reminded me of the chocolate drizzle I would see on desserts.  To me, it looks like one giant candy heart. :)...

Good News for Bookworms + The Gcash Amex Virtual Pay

I was always a magazine type of person who’s friends with a lot of bookworms.  My friends often talk about this and that book and how they feel for a character.  At that point, I usually zone out because (a) I really have no idea what they’re talking about or (b) the...
