Mellow Yellow Monday # 4


This was taken in one of the walls inside SM Batangas City. This area is on lease and to attract clients and to hide a vacant space, they put this nice wallpaper. I was with my friend Janice and we went from one vacant space to another to take pictures and the people were staring at us like we're insane and they just can't keep from smiling when looking at us.

Watery Wednesday #1

Taken a few weeks ago when were went out for family bonding at Punta Fuego. I told him not to go down because the rocks were slippery and the waves might got him but he was just so stubborn! Maybe that's the character my youngest daughter got from him. I was shouting at the top of the cliff and he just didn't care that he continued going down.  So I stopped shouting and just took pictures. Anyways, the picture came out nice. When he got back, I gave him a pinch and a kiss.

Visit Watery Wednesday for more posts. Have a nice week ahead.

I'm Making Tutu Skirts!

Lately, I’d been wanting to make a tutu for my 6-year old daughter. She had seen some tutus from the malls and she’s always begging me to make a pink tutu for her. I even imagined her dancing around in her fluffy tutu. Since I had a friend who makes tutus, I had learned the basics that I wanted even more to make many, many tutus. So yesterday was may day-off from work, I ran to a store that sells supplies and I was so surprised that there’s no way that I can make a lot of tutu’s. The materials were so expensive! Maybe that’s why they tutus sell at a high price at the malls. I only have 500 pesos to spare and these were all I’ve got:

            6 yards tulle @ 70 pesos per yard          -           PhP   420.00
            1 yard elastic band (1/2 inch wide)                              10.00
            Pre made flower sequins                                             50.00
            Satin ribbon                                                               15.00
                                    Total                                     PhP     495.00

You’ll also need a pair of scissors, a needle and pink thread (to sew in the flower sequins), and a lot of patience.

To start, measure your little girl’s waist the add about 5 inches to allow you to adjust when your all done.

Cut strips of tulle about 2 inches wide and 24 inches long so when you fold it in half it hangs about 12 inches. If that’s too long for you, you can do all the trimming in the end.

Then take a strip of tulle, gather in the middle, and slip a knot over the piece of elastic. Fold the ends under the elastic and pull through the open loop.

 Slide all of the knots together, making more room for more tulle.
Then, add more tulle.

Once in a while, measure it against your little girl to make sure that the fit is right. 

Then add some embellishments like Satin Ribbons, Rhinestones, Puff Balls, or miniature Flowers. I sew some flower sequins to my little girl’s tutu.

 And now see the tutu. I finished making it at around 2:00 am and hung it at my daughter’s window so when she wakes up in the morning she’ll be surprised to see the tutu waiting to be worn. I’m thinking of saving my 13th month pay so I can make a lot of tutus that I can give as gifts or maybe sell online. 

Shopping Expo at World Trade Center

I have a friend that sells baby girls stuff like tutu and pettiskirts online. I just met her through Facebook and she invited me to see her at her first ever booth at the World Trade Center in Manila. The trade show was titled Philippine Christmas Shopping Expo and it was held on November 13 and 14, 2010. I was so amazed how my pretty mom friend can make pretty stuff. It was also my first time to attend a trade show so I looked around from booth to booth. I noticed that most booths used these pop up displays varying in different shapes and sizes. My friend told me that these are popular nowadays with trade shows and events because Pop ups are easy to set up and transport.  Pop up trade show displays uses flexible graphic panel that is attached to a roller that when ready to display at pop up booths, these were just pulled up and hold the graphic in place using a support post at the back of the roller.

My friend’s pop up booth display used bold, colorful, and attractive images that it lured a lot of attendees to see her stuff. I helped her set-up her booth and I was surprised to see that these trade show pop up displays are so light that it can be carried and set-up without much effort.  It is foldable and durable that my friend said she will use it once she participated again in another trade show. I wasn’t able to buy from her stuff because I got no extra money with me but she told me she’ll teach me how to make them. How I wish I’d learn then maybe I can have my own pop up booths and be able to join trade shows and exhibits. Who know, office jobs bored me a lot so maybe I can give it a try.

Mellow Yellow Monday # 3


This is my youngest and only son Mochi (with his yaya) and this was his first Trick or Treat. I had a hard time looking for his Halloween costume. Thanks to Ebay I found his monkey costume. But the nearest stores ran out of pumkin basket so I just got one of my daughter's beach pail, grabbed some black markers, made some scary eyes drawings and tada!, a makeshift halloween pumpkin basket for my Mochi. He liked it very much he can't keep from biting it :)
