When I was little, you’ll find me doodling and reading more than I am in front of the computer now. Besides the fact that I love drawing, we did not really have a computer yet then. Ha! Ha!
Kidding aside, here are some words to inspire us this time of the year. I know for a fact that a lot of us are on “vacation” right now, enjoying. But there are still a lot of us too, that is taking the time to do a little soul searching and some others repent their sins in many simple and complex ways they can. but however we spend our Holy Week, these words would sure remind us of something about us and much more, about life.
Humility, bravery, love, trust, family values, peace, friendship and positivism are just some of what we, as humans, should really incorporate within ourselves. It may be a little hard but with open-mindedness and HIS guidance, we will be who we want to be and should be, we will get to where we belong and we should be – slowly but surely.

My elder daughter, K , has always been interested in arts. She is into painting and drawing. I have saved some of her old artworks (when she was still younger) and some we can no longer find. From the mess of watercolors, pencils, markers and crayons, her interest in drawing has evolved. Now, she’s enjoying her ability either using MS Paint or this application I got for her from Google Play – KidsDoodle!
Besides K, my younger daughter showed interest too. Roey can already write letters from A to D and has been doodling too using crayons and water color. Her big sister once showed her the KidsDoodle application and out of curiosity, she tried using it too.
So, last but not the least, here is something my 3yo daughter, Roey, created…
In case you are wondering what that is, she drew a letter A and a W. As I have mentioned, we were practicing writing and currently at the letter D but she has already learned W in advance. Hooray for that, hooray for her drawing and another hooray for being able to use the apps without further instructions. Kids nowadays…
My friend asked me to make an invitation and tarpaulin for my Godson Miggi’s 3rd birthday. I gladly said yes sine I haven’t done any scrapbooking lately. I decided to look for freebies that I can use for the Angry Birds theme. I found one from Shery K Designs and I am very thankful that it made my project cute and it was done with ease. I also found a Dora The Explorer and Minni Mouse theme I might download too in preparation for my daughter’s birthday as well. This site is really awesome.
Thank you as well to my friend Hazel who owns Funtastic Shots Photobooth. She helped me with some Photoshop tips. I am happy with the outcome of the Angry bird themed invitation and tarp I made specially for Miggi.

I saw my friend’s daughter posted something interesting in Facebook and so I went ahead and checked the application and its website- WiddlyTinks.com. I immediately tried how to make my own Holiday greeting card. I got lost a little with how to resize the photo but glad to have figured it out. I was already thinking on what and how to ask a 7 year old girl how she did it. haha!
Here’s my younger daughter greeting you all an early Merry Christmas!
Dutdutan 2011 was held at the World Trade Center last August 26 & 27. My cousin’s other half, Michael and his brother & friends went there. Curious what Dutdutan festival is? I am too!
It is actually the Philippines Tattoo
Expo. They call it a celebration of art and ink. Also the nation’s biggest and grandest tattoo exposition. Michael worked for Tribal Gear Philippines which is the company behind the expo. Dutdutan 2011′s highlights include competitions of innovative and creative tattoo artists. They are also called premiere inkers. The competition has various categories and they also have the most coveted award so far – Tattoo of the Day.
Dutdutan event was created to showcase the evolution and innovation of tattoo as an art form. It’s one of the most unique way to express art though has always been refered and labeled to the rebel crowd. Now, we can name a lot of celebrities who started having tattoos which is an obvious sign that the status of body art has improved and the taboo about it set aside.
Supporters not only of Tribal Gear and Dutdutan but also of this body art came out and enjoyed the 2 day event. It has made its mark, there are indeed a lot of tattoo enthusiats. Michael being one.
I got my first tattoo yesterday. I found that I was spending the last couple of days looking on the internet trying to see how much pain this was going to cause me. After reading some testimonials it actually made me quite nervous.
ays thought they were a form of art and was curious about the process, but always backed down on the idea of shelling out money to pay some stranger to stab me and put me through many minutes of torture.
However, when I was actually sitting in the chair and getting it done I realized that it wasn’t really that bad. There were parts that were more tender than others, but I knew I would live through it.
So for anyone getting their fist tattoo don’t worry about it. I got mine on my arm and I would explain it as a scratching sensation. Don’t get me wrong it does hurt, but its not that bad. So don’t sweat it out, take the step if its what you really want. Don’t let your fear hold you back!
Big thanks to Apple and Whopper!
