My Fruitful Voyage thru Womanhood

There’s nothing more that can make someone feel special than if you give someone a gift and do a really good job of wrapping it. But that doesn’t have to be necessarily hard to do. A lot of times that just means using the odds and ends that you have lying around for your disposal.

I like to use odds and ends that maybe are tossed aside and can’t be used for their original purpose and making them into gift tags or just using them as an extra ornament on a gift. I’ve found all kinds of ideas to use like that by just looking through craft blogs with my CLEAR-INTERNET and easily applying them.

I also like to reuse holiday gift wrap and sometimes do different things with it like cutting shapes out of it and then gluing it to the outside of a plain brown paper bag that I got my groceries in or something like that. It’s those simple things that keep you from buying more than you have to and personalizing for fun.

Hi guys! How are you doing?

As for me, I’m in a relax mode now in the house. No bosses, no phone calls and no office backlogs that will stress me out. Only great opportunities online that is waiting for me to be done. There are times that I get bored because I’m not really used to blogging all day, watching TV and sleeping in the afternoon though I tried to indulge myself to do something fruitful especially now that I need more moolah. Oh well, maybe after these pregnancy hormones come to their senses I will have more drive in blogging. I hope.

Speaking of blogging, I just want to introduce to you a friend of mine who decided to make blogging a part of her life. Actually, she has been blogging for a couple months now but somehow along the way something happens to her domain which temporary stop her from updating. But today, she launched her newest domain with her new drive to be a Work-At-Home-Mom like me.

Here are the details of her new blog.

Until a few years ago, I would always go and buy a bunch of paper gift bags from the store around the holidays. But I would end up throwing them away every year and that was so wasteful. So a few years ago I decided to make some fabric gift bags to reuse over and over again to wrap presents up in.

I actually got the idea from a blog post that I read on a going green themed blog that I read with my Clear Bundle. I thought it was a lot of time well worth spent to make the bags.

To make the fabric gift bags, I just bought a bunch of cheap holiday colored fabric and made sacks out of them with matching drawstrings that I reuse over the years too. I’m also able to wash them after we used them every year to keep them looking really nice and I attach gift tags on them with the drawstrings. They’re especially good for oddly shaped toys for my son, which are so hard to wrap in wrapping paper without ripping it on its sharp corners.

One of my favorite delicacies in our country. :)

Puto as they are locally called is a steamed rice cake popular in the Philippines. They are cooked thru steaming, boiling and roasting. These puto can be eaten as desserts or even a meal for breakfast. They are available in different types, sizes and different colors.

Just look at these colorful puto that was served during my nephew Kyle’s first birthday. They look so yummy and cute isn’t? Especially the YELLOW ones. :)

I was browsing the web this morning when I came across Roman Grinev Photography. The website was all about wedding photography and more cool stuffs about weddings! I checked on some of their photos at their galleries and I was truly amazed on how they capture every moment.

 

I suddenly remembered my friend Ythan who was asking me if I know some DC wedding photographers for his upcoming wedding next year. He’s actually looking specifically for a DC Wedding Photographer because they are known for being one of the best wedding and event photographers in the states. Quit frankly, I really don’t have any idea how they work.  That’s why, it’s a good thing that I came across this website for they have some information as well as galleries about DC wedding photography. Now, I just can’t wait to tell Ythan about this awesome discovery.
