Colorful Outfits for Kids at Mothercare

My baby is now a little boy. I can’t believe I’m typing this but it’s the truth. While I do sometimes miss the teeny tiny Riley, his two year old (almost three) self has got quite the amount of surprises too. For starters, I always thought that shopping would only be...

Twiga Learns How to Say Thank You

It’s heartwarming and inspiring to see companies add a layer of purpose or mission to their products. As a mom, I feel so grateful for brands like Tiny Buds for expressing genuine concern in instilling values for the kids of today. They go beyond their products, even...

How to Turn Your Designs Into Paper Cuts and Crafts

I'm trying to recall when my curiosity for cutting ever started. I remember when I was 5, and I was using a super blunt pair of scissors to cut my bangs. My mother was really upset to find out what I did. Hahahahahaha. I still think it's funny to this day. I tried...

Free Downloadable: Filipino/Cebuano-English Flash Cards + Stickers

Cooking with Kids Easy Hotcake Recipe

If there’s one thing that Riley has been fascinated about since he was a baby, it’s food. At just a few months old, he’d wake up to the smell of sautéed garlic in the kitchen. He loves to watch people cooking, be it his dad at home, the chefs stretching noodles in...

How to Make Ombre Hotcakes

It's no secret that we love color and food so it's been a long dream of ours to put the two together. We didn't realize that our little wish would come true soon when we met Elle Jay Orbase (aka Pancake Warrior on Youtube) and the Maya Hotcake Team! They shared with...

10 Things I Miss About Sagada

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...

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...

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

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. :)...

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...

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...

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....
