Piolo Pascual

I just finished a scrapbook dedicated to Piolo Pascual. No, it's not mine. It's for a client. It's the second book I did for her consisting of several clippings and photos from various magazines. I personally won't do something like this even for my favorite performer, but if it makes other people happy then who am I to say anything against it? Besides, seeing her face light up when she was looking at the pages is very satisfying.

Now, I know more stuff about him and I haven't seen even one of his works. No movie, no soap opera and no show. Maybe one day, I'll know why she likes him.

Bulletin Boards

This is the nth bulletin board I did in my lifetime, and I'm not complaining. :) This is for a pre-school for their wellness and personal values lesson that will run for the rest of the school year. They're made of chipboard and acrylic paints. It's only this year that I experimented with pre-school colors. As a teacher of 16-year-olds for five years, my color palette as a teacher consisted of earth tones only. It's challenging but it's fun!

I also accepted a temporary teaching post for their After School Activity. For five weeks, I am to teach crafts to primary schoolers. I'm actually on my second week and it's been fun so far. Honestly, it's difficult to think of projects that could be completed in an hour by these children. Each has to be finished at the end of the session so they can enjoy it afterwards. Last week, we did stamping using corrugated boards and strings. Today, we had origami album using wrapping and colored papers. It's fun to teach these kids! I can't believe it.

We offer customized handmade papercraft products such as greeting cards, scrapbook albums, mini-albums, blank journals, calligraphy work, boxes, scrapbooking services and other papercrafts.

Ms. Ilyn is a licensed architect who decided that teaching arts and crafts, or making them, is way more fulfilling than dealing with contract documents, estimates and technical specifications. She taught Architectural Drafting and Painting to High School Students for five years, and Arts for Pre-K to Grade 3 Pupils for three years.
