Photo Diary: Craft Camp, Antipolo

I can’t believe it’s already been a week since we spent a weekend in Antipolo for Craft Camp PH. While organizing a full-day activity—and doing it twice in one weekend—can be physically taxing, there really is something about spending an entire day making, and doing it in a relaxing environment. This year, we decided to bring our campers to Antipolo….

A few of my favorite things

Always make time for the things that matter. Two of my favorite things in the world: making things with my hands and the ocean. These are some of the books I’ve worked on in the past 3 years. If there’s anything that gives me joy, it’s when I’m making something. Whether it’s a batch of my chocolate chip cookies, a…

Weave Got It Going On

I spent the entire weekend home, catching up on TV shows and practicing my brush lettering (as evidenced by another “new” layout in less than a month, haha). My best friend asked me to come up with a design for her tattoo and I’ve been having fun drafting different designs in between sleeping and eating all morning. 😛 Last week,…

A Craft Gathering

I met Mansy at Alessa‘s craft soiree two years ago. She was already running her online store Hey Kessy for maybe about a year then. Fast forward to today, her online store has its brick-and-mortar version along E. Abada in Katipunan. She gave me and Mikko a sneak peek a few weeks ago and I already knew how amazing it…

I credit this lightning speed to an incredibly long to-do list that never seems to run out! Follow me on Instagram September was an awfully busy month. September is a big month in the publishing industry….

Made It Myself: Handmade Stationery

Last weekend, I spent a rainy Saturday afternoon at a cozy cafe with some fellow crafty people making cards and envelopes with my brand new Martha Stewart punchers. My friend Mikko has the biggest collection of craft punchers. I’m not even kidding. So when she opened up a craft huddle that came bundled with a free puncher, I didn’t even…

Photo Diary: Bahay Marikit (San Juan, Batangas)

Allow me one #throwbackthursday photo collage before I dive into a flashback trip to San Juan, Batangas. I don’t remember exactly when but I suppose our choice of swimsuits might be an indication that the last time I was in Bahay Marikit was a very long time ago. So when Mikko told me she was heading to Batangas with some…

Catching Up

It’s kind of crazy how time speeds up and just like that, it’s already the end of the first half of the year. How did that happen? Just six months ago, I was promising myself a lot of things: to always say yes, to try new things, and to be a little more adventurous in life. And here we are…

Think Of This Song As A Promise

Music Monday { From a year ago: YouTube Presents Jason Mraz Live from NYC } The best thing about seeing him live is his unbelievably good adlibbing (is this even a word, sorry haha). I’m seeing him again in May and I cannot wait! Tasty Tuesday { Banana Pecan Pancake, Breakfast at Antonio’s } Still thinking about this fluffy stack…
