Happy Father's Day

I had the kids come over to make Father's Day cards today.  This is the best time to bring out those alphas, stickers, pens, markers, stamped images and other embellishments for them to use.  It's amazing and inspiring what these kids were able to make for their dads.

I liked crafting ever since I was a little girl.  But back in the Philippines, I didn't have access to craft supplies, except during art class. Now that I have all these tools and materials, I love to share them with friends and family, especially the kids.  I want them to experience this one thing I never had during my younger days.  I can't wait to do this with my own kids.  It won't be that long.

Got Flowers?

So... I have been working in my new craft space, sorting out and organizing things.  I really, really, really want to finish this so I can sleep better.  You know that feeling when you have a goal and you want it done so bad that your brain keeps running with ideas and what ifs?  Yeah.  I've been having that.  And as I always say, RL gets in the way.  I already accepted that this goal won't be reached soon because of a lot of friends and family lined up to visit us in the next 4 months.

Anyway, my attention was focused on all the flowers I have hoarded for many years.  Previously, I was storing them by brand for blogging purposes.  Now I realized it's best to just store them by color.  So I started with my jar of Prima flowers.

Man, I tell you, it's like therapy.  I was so intent at the task that I didn't even realize I was drooling... hahaha!  It feels good after they're all sorted out.
