Lacuna No More

Posted on

It’s been a year of hiatus on this blogsite but it didn’t mean emptiness. Not at all. It’s just an absence of enough time to spend on writing a blog, I only had time for 140 characters on Twitter and bits of a rant or rave statuses on Facebook.

I missed writing. Modesty aside, I have always believed that I was born to be a writer. It would seem that I have abandoned this belief but that is not the case. I have been busy with a bunch of different things other than writing: with arts and crafts (handmade projects), some upcycling seminars here and there, coordinating a churchmate’s wedding for this month, an administrative job with one of the most respectable wedding suppliers in the country, and assisting my dear mother-in-law in the family business. I should also include being an active member of our Highschool Alumni group in charge of some fund-raising projects and upcoming reunions plus being appointed as the new Secretary of our homeowners’ association. Yes, my plate is overflowing with tasks and activities, but I see them as opportunities to learn and upgrade myself. I don’t plan on growing old as a dull, close-minded woman.

Now, the real reason why I am writing again is because of this website called Language Is A Virus. It provides good writing exercises to help you knock off that writer’s block. Today I’ve got a writing prompt: “I care about…” And this is where I have decided to write about it.

I care about my children. I would like to think that I have been doing a great job raising them but in reality it is a daily struggle for me to decide whether I have to be a protective mother or not. Both of them are teenagers now. *sigh* I just took a cue from Dude Crush when he told Marlin, “…when they know, you know, y’know?”  At least I am confident my teenagers know that I am always here to guide them, whenever they need it.

I care about the environment. If you have seen my other blogsite with posts of my handmade creations I think you have already noticed that I am very fond of upcycling stuff. Climate change is not just a myth now and this is one of the reasons why I love sharing my self-acquired knowledge about upcycling, simply known as creative recycling, to other people particularly with the younger ones. I would like to believe that I can make a change by planting a seed of caring for the environment to other people by doing these upcycling seminars. A small drop of water can still cause a ripple in the ocean.

That’s all for now. Thank you for taking time to read this. See you again soon. 🙂

Supporting Handmade: PAPEMELROTI

Posted on

Handmade[5]

I was first introduced to Papemelroti products by a good friend of mine, it was way back in 1994. She was very fond of their recycled papers and notepads, and she’s always sending me handwritten notes back then. Oh how I have loved receiving those!

Since then I have grown to love Papemelroti, even dreaming of having a store like it myself. Their recycled, repurposed, reused products are very inspiring to me (since I am a pack rat myself LOL), and going to one of their stores give me immeasurable happiness.

Fortunately, I am sharing with you that same happiness. (Yay!) Papemelroti is now having an online promo/raffle and the items at stake will surely bring you happiness. For more info, just click this LINK. ^_^
