My New Washi Box

Friday, December 26, 2014

My cousin Bianca gave me this box from Echostore. Of course I love everything inside. And I love this box. I love anything that is Filipino made. So I made it my Washi tape box. 

Isn't it nice? Any recent finds you'd like to share? 😊

Merry Christmas

LGU Christmas Party 2014

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

I could barely remember when was the last time I attended an LGU Christmas Party. I was so excited and nervous that night. We prepared so many prizes for everyone and we wanted everyone to have fun that night. I do hope that it was a night to remember because it was for me.

Our initial display.

Hope you guys had fun that night.

What I got that night. The black notebook from Dr. Rosario Mosqueda and the rest from my manita, Collete Florentino.

My Love for Calligraphy

Monday, December 22, 2014

I've always loved writing, reading and doing posts such as this. I've always felt comfortable inside a bookstore or a school supplies store. Given the chance to choose clothes over school/office supplies, I would take the latter. It was only during the past few weeks that my love for calligraphy has started to surface. I've had fountain pens since I was in medical school but everytime I use it, I felt that it was for something else. So imagine my relief when I finally realized where I could use it. Hubby kept telling me that I have way too much pens :)

During one of our trip to Manila, I just had to add more pens. So I hoarded fountain pens at Scribe Eastwood Mall. Plus I bought a few other items, like my embosser.

Love them...

I have seen some works that I love and hope to be like them someday. Here are just a sample of their posts. I love their work.






I also bought my first nib, with holder and ink from iam_artisan. You can check out her store at the Yellow Hauz. If she's around, she can help you out too.

This was my first try with the nib. It takes a lot of getting used to.

This one I wrote for my mama. I intentionally blurred what I wrote.

So there you have it. Just wanted to share with you guys what I'm into right now. I still have a long way to go to perfect my calligraphy but practice makes perfect right. And I love it everytime I write.

Kiddy's Arts Town

Sunday, December 21, 2014

This was during one of our Manila trip. I took the kids to Eastwood Mall, it's the closest one to the condo. They had a photo opt with some Lego Cars. My little boy wanted to touch them. Had he had the chance, he could have disassembled all of the cars.

And then we saw this. Kiddy's Arts Town. R love arts and crafts so she wanted to do this. And of course, the younger one always follows her ate. It's one of those stickers for the glass windows.

She chose the butterfly.

Ate chose the flower.
And here's the finish product.

This is an overdue post. I thought I posted this already only to find out that it's still a draft. Silly me. This is just a glimpse of what happened during the 77th Araw ng Malita.
