Sunrays and Saturdays

Picking flowers with Mawsy after the art event for kids last Saturday in Maginhawa.

Glassine craft kits I have been preparing for the Messy Washi Party! Yes, I know it will not be until November but I am just so excited! There’ll be more kits and craft bottles for participants.

If you want to attend the party, you can read the details here and register here. Only 3 slots left! YAY!!!


More photos here :)

Wear Washi: Pendants

I was able to make more washi jewelry!

The jewelry base was bigger so I was able to play with the patterns. I combined different designs and they turned out pretty good, right? Hehe. (And yes! Some of the designs are new! They'll be made available in our website soon ;p )

I will be selling these pieces at the Hip Pinoy Fair on October 27-28 and 10a Alabama Fair on November 10-11.

These are the silver charms I made two Saturdays ago at Alessa's Silver Jewelry 
Crafternoon a few Saturdays ago. I wish Silver clay will be available in the Philippines soon!

+ Anyone interested for a Wear Washi Workshop? Email us at Thankies!

Of Foxes, Basketball Games, and Origami Letters

So how do you make a single blog post about foxes, basketball, Ateneo, Taco Bell, origami, and Hey Kessy?


I don’t mind standing up at the highest GA row as long as I could watch the game live! So, when Pol and Ditch told me that we should line up already to enter the coliseum to get good seats, I asked them to go ahead and just reserve a seat for me. I’d rather stay at Taco Bell and make some crafts!;p

But no! That didn’t happen. Though, I was able to make these washi origami letters before we braved the lineeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

If you can’t find Origami paper, you can always upcycle a piece of scratch paper with washi tapes! It’s cuter and more affordable! I have an Origami application on my iPod so whenever I get bored, wherever I am, I can make crafts!;p


Meet Mr. Duck (made by Pol) and Mr. Fox

+ Geli made origami stars using Hey Kessy washi tapes.

October Mail Swap

Hello! :)
If you want to receive a snailmail,  join our October Mail Swap!

To sign-up, please email me the ff:

1. Name
2. Blog links (if there are any)
3. Shipping address

I think it would be more fun if we send our mails thru our good ol' post offices. I've read some articles about post offices (international and local) who are forced to lay off employees or close down altogether because of lack of funds :( So, I thought why not help them in our own ways by using their services, right? :)

PS Sign ups until October 14, Sunday.

A Craft Visit

You know it’s gonna be a good day when your friends visit you and want to have a spontaneous craft tambay!

When I was a fresh grad, Des would  always tease me of always having mini workshops in my room whenever she’d see my craft mess, “ano may workshop ka?” or “wumu-workshop?“. HAHA! I was so happy when she texted that she and Trixie were on their way to my house.

They made a postcard using washi tapes!

Brown + Pink

 Just recently, I've realized how Pink and Brown look good together.

I was volunteered by my friend (Hello Edwina! Haha ;p) to decorate our pantry cork board. So, I made some circular kraft tags and painted them with Christmas trees and gift boxes to hang on the sides of the board.


Neon Pink and White look good on brown, I’ve just realized. Above is the Poster version of a Forest Postcard  and my practice sheet for a project I’m doing for my sister. It was a relaxed Sunday afternoon until my circular puncher suddenly stopped working and my cousin/pamangkin/tito, Mawsy (a.k.a. Mickey Maw) tried to destroy play with my craft toys!


Anyhoo, this is my fail puncher. I am trying to look for a more reliable brand. Please let me know if you have recommendations :p Thanks!
