I got so hyped when I learned that I have been picked and featured by Jen of @littlemomentsapp in the theme “clouds” from @fatmumslim ‘s Photo A Day Challenge. The excitement was high I had to share the post by Jen @love_wednesday in my own IG account and in Facebook too. Pardon that excitement I mentioned as it was the first time I got featured. Haha!
Here is the Fab Four for the “clouds” theme last March 14. It would be great if you could also check out and follow the other three Instagrammers featured.
If I recall it correctly, I was a day late in posting my entry for the theme but maybe because the photo of my daughters is quite nice, I got in the Fab Four. I have been on and off in participating in the FMS Photo A Day Challenge in the past years but I am proud that this year, I have not skipped any theme yet… yes! Really hoping I could continue this no-skip streak for the entire year. Thanks to my daughter @iam_k23 as she helped me with a number of themes or prompts with her photos she allowed me to use. She was able to explore Manila during their class field trip and having a better phone camera of course, she took a lot of photos. I really mean a lot. Too many that when she shared it to me through Bluetooth, my phone’s memory got really occupied. I have to really curate all of the photos she shared though and also remembers to give her the credits whenever I use them in Instagram.
Having been able to be part of the Fab Four, I am but inspired to snap more hopefully-beautiful-photos and share it in my Instagram account, not to boast but to express and maybe inspire too.
Up is the list of prompts and hashtags for the entire month of April. Join us this April in FatMumSlim’s Photo A Day Challenge. See how you can also challenge and express yourself through the photos you share in Instagram.
The month of May has always been special to me. It is but an extra ordinary month since I was a kid. First of May, besides being the Labor Day, is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, our barangay’s patron saint. I have lots of happy “fiesta” memories. Several group of friends at our place would set up parlor games with prizes and there were a few times I took home cash prizes. =)
Besides the feast, May 2 is my Dad’s birthday. May 3 is one of my nephew’s birthday too. He’s someone my Mama and I took care of when he was a baby to his toddler years. Well, he has grown up and grown really tall. Come May 6 is my Mama’s birthday and of course, Mother’s Day is also celebrated during May. Back in Buhi, Camarines Sur (my Mama’s home town), May flower, Town Fiesta and SantaCruzan are also celebrated during this month. Having mentioned that, I have planned to take the kids with me and visit Buhi town at least before June.
Anyways, for the first time, I joined #FMSphotoaday challenge. And I am really gonna try to make it a point to post a photo each day according to the theme or prompt. This is the first time I have joined and I am hopeful too to at least be responsible in posting a photo a day and so as push my creativity a little more to come up with really nice photos.
I was not ready yesterday when I remember that it is the 1st of May so when I learned yesterday’s theme, I took a photo of what was right in front of me.
#FMSphotoaday 1st of May – I BOUGHT THIS!
I am now excited to the upcoming themes. I just wish not to forget a post!

Haley Roneese turned 19 months today. She can already say Thank You which is “Q” in her version. She taps and pulls me off my PC chair whenever she wants Mommy to draw something or needs me to prepare her milk. She cal
ls her big sister “Atchi” whom she hugs and wrestle most of the time. She waves and says BYE and HELLO to everyone at home and so as to our neighbors. She also enjoys helping around the house by keeping her toys away after using it, and so as the pillow, by the way. She calls her dirty hands “ouch” and dries them up on her own after washing it. Roey can imitate a barking dog non stop, lol! And the best of all, she reads out loud, in her own language that is.
I made this one especially for my little Roey. I used and combined several freebies I got to download few days ago. I”m also trying to do a research so I can create layouts, stickers and embellishments on my own. I”m really liking this hobby and blogging is definitely one fun way for me to share it. I”m joining a party of colors tomorrow but decided to post it now.
Again, trying my hands in digital scrapbooking using an old photo of my daughter Keanna. This was taken more than 2 years ago at a park about 20 mins away from us. I’m sharing it to Harriet’s Shadow Shot Sunday. For more awesome entries, just go ahead and click on the badge below. Have fun!
Today is one of my closest cousin’s birthday. To make my simple present a little special, I made this for her. I know everyone would agree with me that she looks prettier in Purple, right? I don’t have any siblings and I grew up close to my relatives. She’s like a real big sister to me. I can still remember that she would invite me for sleepovers when I was a teener and so as make healthy oats for breakfast as soon as we get up. It’s really nice to reminisce precious moments. Again, Ate Jen… HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Stay healthy, young and happy!
My daughter, when this was taken was about 4 years old… she”s now turning 9 by July. In this featured photo, she”s delighted to have a luces, it”s a small type of firework you held by your hand. And this by the way was taken New Year”s eve, as we welcome 2007. The reason why I”ve chosen this to upload is because you can no longer have my daughter hold a lighted luces like this one. I”m not sure why though but definite that she”s never had a bad experience about it. She cried the last time I lighted one and gave to her. On the contrary, it is actually okay to me as her mom. I guess my daughter has learned from other people”s experiences. We often see videos of people who accidentally lost some of their fingers or had bloody experiences playing with fireworks. That”s always in the news after or even before New Year”s eve. There are just some who likes to break rules, that is why.
Anyways, here”s my entry for Shadow Shot Sunday. My first in this new blog site where I”d like to share my hobbies and interests. Used a digital camera here, no flash, no edits. I truly welcome comments, suggestions and even critical remarks, hehe!
I have already blogged about my daughter’s purple skirt here but I’m gonna use it again, hope you guys don’t mind.
I succeeded in sewing a skirt for my daughter which I had her wore at Jillian’s party and then again at school as her costume. She won 2nd place in their annual English declamation contest. I picked Purple cloth to match her blouse perfectly.
As I’ve mentioned, this blog is home to my hobbies. Check out that Pink blouse of Keanna and you’ll see what I’ve ensembled. Purple necklace with Black ribbon! I stitched it at the sides of the shoulders of her blouse. Another thing I did was the headband she’s wearing. No, I didn’t make it but redecorated it instead. I added Black flower shaped lace and voila!
Though I haven’t made any dress yet, I have already collaborated designs that I find cute and cool for little girls. Hoping I’ll manage to find time for my sewing hobby soon.
