Art Crafts out of colored papers

I love making art crafts like this. I even loved to draw and make my own cards for birthdays, weddings and even just a thank you card for a special someone or for my friends. It's not that I'm "kuripot", I'm buying the materials as well. It’s just that, I’m not satisfied if I’ll just buy it somewhere else like for example a birthday card. The satisfaction is different most especially if the person will really appreciate your effort of making something for her or for him. Just by giving them a simple thing yet with all your effort would mean a lot to them. It would make them feel more special.

It’s not necessary for you to buy expensive gifts but for those who can afford it then you can buy the most expensive gifts that you could give to your friends, love ones and special someone. Still, “it is the thought that counts” as the old adage goes.

My coach, was very happy to have that swan on the picture, I made it for her. It's very simple yet it was appreciated. While the those little stars, I made it while waiting for calls just to kill the time. My officemates saw it and they like it so they requested me to make more stars for them.

Until now, I'm not yet done doing lots of stars. Kristoff is asking me to make something like this for him. They loved it and I loved the feeling as well that my work is being appreciated.

Greatest dream

I'm kinda busy this couple of days, actually before the year 2007 ends I don't have time anymore to update my blog and to do some rounds to other blogs.

Well, busy preparing going back to Davao last week of December of 2007. Just went there to celebrate the new year with my family. Their new year is not complete without me. Mamang didn't allow me not to go home so for almost a year that I'm here in Manila I went home for the first time.

It's funny actually, I went home to do some laundry... hehehehe. I brought all my dirty clothes so I could wash it there. I stayed there for 4 days with my "mahal". Our new year celebration was fantastic, we enjoyed a lot. We laugh, dance, sing, and above all we never forget to give thanks to the creator for making our whole year of 2007 safe, for keeping us alive, for keeping us away from any illness and violence, for giving us the strength and courage and for keeping my family intact. We went back here in Manila last January 1st of this year.

This is just my second post for this year and I feel like I need to post some things that is happening now. Some things that is happening GOOD to me now. I may say that it's a gift that I've longed to have, though it's not over yet but I know that day will come. We still need to prepare for it and make the most out of it. Actually, until now I still can't believe, am I just dreaming? I even asked myself... Is this all true?

Maybe you're wondering what I'm talking about. I'm happy to say that... I'm getting married... soon. One of the greatest dream of being a woman. We are preparing things for the wedding already, it's a little bit hard since we're here. I need to do some phone calls every now and then for the things that we need to settle there. I really don't know where to start and what to do. I need to asked some friends first what are the things we need to prepare. Good thing they are all happy in helping us out.

New Years Greeting

Welcome 2008, well, this is my first post for this year. I was busy the past few days reason why I wasn’t able to update this blog and my recipe blog. I need to attend some training for our holiday overtime so I don’t have time anymore to do some posting.

The years 2007 gave me a lot of things to treasure and are too many to mention. This year I’m looking forward to something special that would happen. I hope that this year will be more than a memorable year for me to thank and to celebrate. I’m just waiting for the right time to announce it…hope this is it!!! Just wish me that God will bless us and grant our prayers and long time plans.

Enjoy the rest of the year!!!
