Crafted Memories



Last January 2018, the Evia Lifestyle Center in Muntinlupa City held a series of workshops to introduce their customers to new crafts and hobbies to help them jumpstart the new year.    For the Crafted Memories segment, I came in to share tips and techniques I have learned as an avid fan of journaling and scrapbooking.



We brought in stamps, stickers, patterned papers, journaling cards, ephemeras and many more that the guests used to decorate their journals and scrapbooks.



Crafting is such a wonderful opportunity for parent and child bonding.  I was happy to see a lot of moms crafting with their kids.



It was awesome crafty afternoon!

Thank you to Ms. Pam Mercurio, Ms. Krystal Padua and the rest of the Evia Lifestyle Center team.  🙂

My 2018 Goals


Happy New Year everyone!

I love January because we all get a fresh start, no matter how good or bad the previous year has been.

I did a review of my 2017 goals and I realized I was not able to accomplish even half of them.   Maybe because I rarely checked my list throughout the year? Hahaha!

Anyway, I made a new list of goals for 2018 and it was really fun to jot down things I want to accomplish.  No hard core goals in there except for ‘Start a travel blog’ which is my ultimate dream ever!


Love making my Goals List with Christine Herrin’s Plan It Out Stamp Set

I also added numbers to make them as specific and measurable as possible (former teacher, hehe!).

Food is also important to me, so I made goals for that, too.   I’m also working on a set of goals about how my family and I can have healthier practices this year.


Can’t wait to cross out goals from my list


What 2018 goals are you working on this year?

Thanks for passing by, Happy New Year!






Creative Journaling with Moleskine Ph



Last October, I had the chance to work with Moleskine Philippines via capsule journaling workshops where I shared tips and techniques I have learned after years of journaling.



We played with Moleskine stamps, washi tapes, and colored pencils.




I also brought with me my favorite handmade stamps, created by my friend, Karla Pasion of Kraft Kart.


Moleskine Philippines will be having a series of creative events between now until the end of December.  Do check out their ig page @legendarynotebooks for updates or join the community at Moleskine PH on Facebook.


Don’t forget to check their current lineup of journals and planners at Fully Booked and National Bookstore.   Their pop up store at SM Aura will be open until Dec. 31, 2017.

Summer Journal Prompts

Sharing with you a set of journaling prompts I created for my Summer Daily Journal project.  Hope that these prompts can help you jumpstart your own journaling about the summer season.

I’ll be sharing pages from my Summer Journal next week on my instagram.   Hope I can inspire you to start your own Summer Journal too. 🙂

Check out my Blogpost for the Gossamer Blue Blog where I’ve shared about how I made my Summer Journal.  All supplies used in this project are from the Gossamer Blue April Main Scrapbook kit.

Dotted TN Insert from Yumi Journals

Here’s how I’ve been using my Dotted TN Insert by Yumi Journals.   I received mine from The Stationer Extraordinaire.   It comes in 85 gsm, ivory dotted paper, perfect for people who love to do bullet journaling.  It fits any regular sized Traveler’s Notebook.   And, the best part ….  it’s fountain pen friendly, yay!

I’m always drawn to journals that have a plain cover.   I decorated it with a piece of chipboard from the Gossamer Blue Feb Life Pages kit.


The cover is in Midnight.

I’m using this journal to help me organize my creative life.   Because one of my creative goals is to write at least 20 blogposts for 2017, I used the first page to jot down ideas.   I really enjoy writing things down;  it helps me to remember ideas better.  Love how the dotted paper makes my handwriting look neater.


I love using ephemera and stickers on my journals.

I also wrote down the museums/art spots I have visited and plan to visit.  I feel quite proud of myself for thinking of an icon system to differentiate each item. A shaded circle will indicate that a blogpost has already been done, a circle with a dot inside means I have been to that art spot, while a blank circle means I have yet to visit the place.


Written with a Kaweco Fountain Pen

On the next pages, I plan to write about other things relevant to my creative life like workshops/classes to attend, craft project ideas and many more.
