Sharing my thoughts about arts and crafts through a workshop is one of my long-time dream. I already tried one simple workshop with the kids around the block last summer in celebration of my birthday. Since I've been busy for quite a while with so many duties being a teacher and as a student, I thought of waiting for another summer to pursue it. Fortunately, I was invited to facilitate a workshop about (DIY) scrapbook making by Paula (my friend and washi-tape buddy) of Real Living magazine for their Real Living Space 2014. My heart skipped a beat the moment I accepted their invitation because I was happy, excited and nervous at the same time! :) I was happy that I had the chance to share some crafts that I usually do at home. Also, I was excited to meet the RL team including Paula and the workshop goers. And I'm also interested to visit the RL spaces for their showroom and be a part of the other workshops as well at Magnolia Residences. I also got nervous because I'm challenging myself to prepare everything in between my other duties. But that feeling faded away because I was able to manage my time preparing the scrapbook sample, notes, materials and cards. I thought of giving kits but due to time constraint I wasn't able to plan & budget (next time :)). I felt very happy and inspired after all the preparations because I had fun sharing all the crafty stuff I know to my learners during the workshop. It was one of the most worthwhile craft adventure for me. I hope someday I will have another! :)
Thank you Real Living magazine for the opportunity to have a workshop at your RL Space. It was indeed a fun experience together with your team and the crafty learners. Congratulations to a very successful event! :)
Here are some of the snaps of my crafty adventure:

The busy table at the RL workshop room. The materials are arranged before the workshop. I really thank those who helped me! :)

And we had a special tour with Paula at the RL spaces and I got some snaps of the adorable room designs here:
There were so many beautiful rooms that made us sigh: 'awww' and tend to stay longer. Haha. :)
I had a blast that Saturday! I got so many creative ideas about home decorating. Thank you so much again for inviting! :)
I was very excited last Friday to watch another show of Philippine Fashion Week.
It was indeed an adventure Friday night for I and my little sister Jessa. We went there after my long day at work. Fortunately, I still had the energy to pull everything together like bus rides and the last minute preparation for the scrapbooking workshop the next day. I thought of attending the show to update myself from the latest fashion pieces. And I really missed designing clothes and drawing long-legged girls. (soon!)
I was so grateful with Ana Gonzales for letting me watch the fashion show of Sfera, Uno de 50 & Suite Blanco. It was another amazing fashion experience wherein I got so many ideas of styling. The clothes were all so adorable. Of course, I am happy to share you my picks! :)
I always love going to this one particular place that I usually describe as happy, vibrant and fun. This place is no other than Heima Brixton. I and my little sister went there last Saturday to support another paper event, Paper Stories. There were mini pop-up craft booths by Craft Carrot, Anina Rubio,The Lunchbreak Project, Sunday Paper Co. Monsterella, Tit for Tat and the Bekiry. Plus, there were free fun workshops from the artists: Anina Rubio & Arlene Sy.
We had so much fun visiting the booths and exchanging thoughts about arts & crafts.
Thank you also to Arlene Sy for sharing her talent on watercolor and giving away her cards made that afternoon! Yay!
Here are the numerous photos from the Paper Stories event:
One of the happiest place ever! :)
These are some of the products from Heima.
I just loved how my little sister hold the 'Paris' box of stamps.
"Be creative all the time."
How about some ceiling photos? I really find their garlands so cute. :)
I also spotted some origami mobile.
