My Tool Rack

Saturday, April 9, 2016

Hubby left for the city yesterday and he gave the kids something to do to keep them off their ipads. And here's the end product.... my new tool rack. The Kids decided to draw and color the outside which makes it more personal for them, plus, it makes it easy for me to see my tools. Thank you very much!


Eraser Stamp Making with I_Am_Artisan

On a fine sunny Sunday, my daughters and I joined a workshop with @i_am_artisan April San Pedro, Anna Santos (Fabian Trends Unlimited) and Paolo Ramirez (The Secret Garden Design Studio). It was held on Coral Reef Resort. I've been wanting to learn stamp making for a long time and to have joined this workshop is a dream come true. The added bonus was that I got to learn with my daughters, and we bonded a lot during the process.


























Jenga Game

Monday, April 4, 2016

My husband found this game while we were looking for kids' toys. From the look in his eyes, I knew he's up to something. When we got back to the province, he was like a kid with a big candy.

The objective of the game was to keep the whole architecture intact and upright, while each block is removed from its original position and transferred on top. As much as possible, you have to ensure that everytime you remove a block, it has to stay upright. Otherwise the whole architecture comes tumbling down.

True enough, everyone had fun playing Jenga, including the kids.










Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto

It has been years since I witnessed how this book got so much good ratings. I tried to buy one copy a few years back but I wasn't lucky to get one. I envied those who were able to meet the author and was able to talk to her about her book. By the way, she's Filipino so that makes it even better.


This is one book you don't wanna put down. I laughed, cried, smiled and felt sad for the characters. It's a love story. There's birth and there's death. I don't wanna spoil what the book is all about. Go get yourself a copy. Thank you Books Mnl for the copy.
