Some Things, February

1. April was here last week! Alessa, Airees, and I met up with her at Stella - that restaurant which serves the best, un-boring salad ever! I can't remember the name but it has bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, and greens. I'm glad Alessa is vegetarian because I get to eat her share of bacon!! Hehehe! ;)

2. I believe every woman one should read this book by Katrina Stuart Santiago. The world needs this kind of literature.

3.  Every day, I use this Join the Handmade Movement tote bag by Hey Kessy. It reminds me of how the crafting community continues to thrive in the country. More and more people are creating and making at their homes, offices (oops! guilty) - during breaks, or wherever they are, and even if you haven't met them yet, you're able to connect to them through the language of Handmade.

4. These are my washied crafting glasses!

Apparently, my right eye takes longer time than normal to focus while the left one still has astigmatism. I wore glasses for a couple of weeks back in highschool but when they got lost, I didn't bother buying a new pair. I knew it was time to have my eyes checked again when I'd often spill rice, salad, and even water on my lap while eating (or was I just too clumsy?). At first, I thought it was just a matter of hand-and-eye coordination but I was shocked when one time, I was in a carving trance and the tip of my X-acto and the details of the piece I was working on suddenly got blurry! I had to look away and blink a few times to have a clear vision again.

With the help of these glasses, those intricate details in my rubbercuts, papercuts, pottery, and other works might get even smaller. Let's see :)

PS Here are the name tags I made for the participants of the Washi Jewelry Workshop on Saturday.
