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

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...

DIY Chalkboard and Craft Organizer

Our house is mostly filled with arts and crafts supplies, paper of various kinds, books, food (chocolates!) and Riley’s toys. As much as these are all fun and tasty, it can be a bit overwhelming at times. I also happen to have moments where my OC-ness kicks in and I...
