My Scrappylife


as much as we would love to push through with the event this saturday (oct.3), the threat of tropical storm pepeng (parma) has constrained us to POSTPONE the scrapjam.  the safety of the jammers and other participants is more important to us at this point.

the expected landfall of pepeng is on sunday in Northern Luzon BUT the change in weather should be felt as early as Friday or Saturday.  typhoon Ondoy (packing maximum winds  of 85kph near the center and a gustiness of 100 kph) left so many of our countrymen homeless and dead.

as it approached eastern samar, pepeng was tracked with maximum sustained winds of up to 130kph near its center and a gustiness of 160kph…and it’s course has not changed.

after thorough deliberation, the organizers decided to just postpone the Jam and re-schedule it to next Saturday (OCTOBER 10).

we hope all of you understand and join us as we pray for the storm to spare our country.

please feel free to contact us for any other questions.

it was quite a very eventful month…a cousin [who I have not seen for a very VERY very long time] came home. it really meant a lot to see her again. she took care of me when I was a little girl. we even lived in the same house on two occasions. and despite the years decades that have gone by, it is wonderful to find out that she’s still the same funny + quirky + sweetest cousin ever —-  very excited to see her this november in vegas 🙂_MG_0359

yep. i’m heading back to the US for a three week “escapade” — heading once again to san francisco + LA…then heading north to las vegas before meeting up with friends in the big apple (new yorkers: beware. we’re going to paint the town a crazy shade of red!!! lol) it will be my birthday gift to myself. speaking of my birthday, got my first gift for this year this month — a dear friend of my mom was sooo generous enough to give me his Nikon EM (still in perfect working condition – will share/post the pictures I took with it once I have them printed out) —



the nikon EM was actually introduced in 1979 (the year I was born —- yep, i’m hitting the big 3-0 next month). one of the lightest and smallest SLR cameras that Nikon produced. taking pictures with it is really easy. it uses an aperture priority automatic exposure control system — meaning you just set the aperture + focus + shoot. that simple. the camera will automatically select the right shutter speed to match the selected aperture value for proper exposure.  there is even an electronic “beep-beep” sound that warns you if you need to adjust the aperture. neat eh? 🙂

on the scrappy side of things… as shown by my previous post, got my mojo on high gear the past couple of weeks… maybe it was the sight of brand new papers and tools … or maybe seeing my pile of pictures … well whatever the reason, scrap mojo decided to kick in and stay for a little while —– sharing some more layouts I finished last month—

well…you’re in luck!!!


selling the Fiskars 12″ portable paper trimmer for only P600 (US$12)!!!! regular price is at P1000 (US$20). it comes with an extra blade cartridge.

i personally use this trimmer and i love that its so lightweight and portable. it fits easily into any tote bag (hey, you can even fit it inside your office drawer and your boss won’t even know that it’s there. trust me. let’s just say that this is from “first hand” experience. teehee…)

free delivery within Pampanga/Angeles City. shipping it via courier to anywhere in the Philippines for an additional cost of around P100 to P150 (depending on the distance). shoot me an email or leave me a msg on FB or txt me at 09088815183.

hurry while supplies last. 🙂

well…plus the fact that i went back to work a couple of weeks ago (i miss my maternity leave…sniff. sniff.) and that family and friends came to visit from the US and my office hard drive conked out AND we had to move to a temporary office while they renovated our building THUS cutting my internet and phone lines for close to three weeks now…

yep. those would be my top five reasons why i haven’t posted a single entry since miggy turned two months old.


now miggy is more than three months old and he’s bigger than ever. check him out —–


sometimes i feel that he’s growing a lot faster than isa did… it’s actually tougher trying to watch him grow because my attention is divided in so many ways… with isa it was quite different. i was able to spend more time with her because i went back to work when she was already four months old. most of my day was spent taking care of her, giving her baths, sleeping beside her…singing her to sleep…one whiff of me or even the sound of my voice and she would almost immediately settle down…

whereas i only had two months with miggy when i went back to work. now i only get a couple of minutes in the morning and when i get home to bond with him. i try not to feel guilty about it but it really breaks my heart when he would prefer his nanny’s voice over mine.  i just hope that one day i would be able to make more time for him…


took this picture this morning before leaving for work. he just had his morning bath and was busy watching nick jr. before his sister could hog the tv for herself. 🙂 would you believe he’s just a little over 3 months? we were having dinner last week and a chinese family at the next table couldn’t believe it because they had a 5 month old baby with them who was just 2/3 of miggy’s size. lol. i think mark is already plotting whether miggy should go to the nba or the euro league. hahaha. 🙂 hmmm… summer in spain or paris sounds nice… lol…
