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....

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...

Thoughtful Presents and Valentine’s Day

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...
