Mother’s Day Makeover Project

Mother’s Day is when I ask my husband to do the things he will not normally do. Let’s see. In the past, we have trooped to Quezon City, go pillow case shopping and roam the make-up section. To continue the tradition, this year, I have asked him to help me in my craft project. One of our neighbors was about to dispose this bench.  It wasn’t pretty but it had potential. No one makes chairs like that anymore. I had a carpenter fix it so it will look like a chair again.  Continue reading “Mother’s Day Makeover Project”

Stamp Painting

Morning!

How did you celebrate Valentine’s? Our little family stayed at home. I was still in bed when I heard footsteps rushing down the stairs. In a minute, Aki gave me the loveliest bouquet, handpicked from the garden. Later that day, we tried our hands again at stamp painting.

Materials: canvas, acrylic paint, disposable bowl and spoon, and a box wrapped in string Continue reading “Stamp Painting”

Favorite Gifts We Gave and Received Last Christmas

Yellow!

We did not get to see the Pope but by reading and listening about his visit, I already feel extremely blessed.  I am thankful that God sent a charismatic messenger to us to show how much we are loved.

Still on the topic of Christmas, we were blessed  to be surrounded by generous and thoughtful friends and family. All gifts were very much appreciated. And don’t you just love heartfelt notes?  Continue reading “Favorite Gifts We Gave and Received Last Christmas”

Christmas Tradition: Christmas Movie Marathon

Morning!

Yes, I am not yet done with my Christmas series. Year 2014 was a year of blogging backlogs. Hopefully, 2015 will be different.

One of my favorite memories from the last season is enjoying a cup of hot choco, either Swiss Miss or Malagos, while watching a Christmas movie. For my very forgetful brain’s sake, here are the movies that I plan to watch again with Aki come December. Continue reading “Christmas Tradition: Christmas Movie Marathon”

2014 Christmas Decors

I am always amazed when I see houses fully decked inside and out with Christmas decors. The first question that comes to mind is “Where do they store all these after the holidays?!”. We live in a house that is just right size for our small family. Not big, not small but storage space is always a problem. In fact, our third room, the supposed guestroom, was converted into a dressing room slash bodega.

And so when the holiday season rolls in, I just choose which spaces needs to be decorated. I don’t have the time, storage space and budget to holida-fy  our whole little home. This year, I chose the corner under the stairs and bookshelves. I already shared the Christmas trees and books. Let me share how our shelves looked like. Continue reading “2014 Christmas Decors”

2014 Holiday Giftwrapping

I am pleased to inform everyone that over the holidays, I earned my PhD in ribbon-making. Am so proud!

My initial plan was to mostly use tulle and paper straws but I ended up making lots and lots of ribbon.

These are my faves
