B & W Affair

I was commissioned to make 100 pieces of wedding favors a month ago. I never met the couple, but I was just told that their wedding colors were black & white. My initial reaction was, "Whaaat?". Why? Because weddings are happy occasions therefore, only happy colors should be used in them.

However, after I mulled over the idea I realized that the colors black and white need not represent sadness. Both colors used individually or together conveys simplicity and elegance.

So, with these in mind along with function, I turned ordinary writing pads into something very special. Dontcha think so?

What Color Are You?

Are you a red?

Maybe a green?

Could you be an orange?

Or possibly a yellow?

Election fever is up in the air. Soon the Filipino people will have new elected leaders who will hopefully take them to greater heights and provide them a better future. So, come May 10, 2010 exercise your right and vote wisely.

The number of people diagnosed with this dreaded disease has increased significantly over the years. Cancer touches everyone -- whether it's personally or through a family member, friend, neighbor, classmate or colleague.

Last year my dad's younger brother Bebot was diagnosed with colon cancer. Soon after, his daughter Cerissa was stricken with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). And two months ago, Tito Bong, my dad's youngest brother, was diagnosed with lung cancer that metastasized to his liver.

This April, as the we celebrate
Cancer Awareness Month, our family has never been made more aware of the heartaches and devastation cancer brings. Cancer is painful. Cancer is cruel. Cancer is deadly. However, HOPE should not be lost. One day there will be a cure for cancer. One day we will have a cancer free world.

And so, I dedicate this card to all those suffering from cancer most especially to Tito Bebot, Tito Bong & Cipi. Keep on fighting!!!

Handy and Dandy

Hey there! It's been very hectic these past couple of weeks here. March was spent reviewing the kids for their finals, visiting my uncle in the hospital who was recently diagnosed with Stage IV lung & liver cancer, and the usual errands that I need to attend to everyday to keep our household running smoothly. However, this year, March brought in something very special to us. My eldest son, Tonito, graduated from high school. And, to celebrate this momentous occasion we had a simple thanksgiving dinner in our home. Of course, I couldn't pass up the chance of putting together something from my stash for our guests to bring home and I came up with these....

Can you guess what they are?

Mini post-it key chains!!!

Pretty clever, huh?! Here's how I came up with them. First and foremost, I wanted them to be economical. Secondly, they had to be useful. Lastly, I wanted them to be displayed while at use so others may appreciate them as well. They were such a hit at the party!

Well, gotta go for now. Hope you have an enjoyable long weekend (today is "Araw ng Kagitingan") with the people you love the most.
