Add 20pesos when you purchase a notebook set and get an original postcard painted for yourself. :)
Finished most of my orders. Now I have to ship them. Thank God my clients are patient people!! It’s so hard to work a 8-6 job everyday and feel so empty then have one day doing THIS and feel so energized!! Makes me wonder if in 1-2 years I can devote more time in doing what I love rather than forcing myself to love my normal job because it pays the bills.
Take care of yourself for me
A commissioned painting as a birthday gift. When brainstorming what flower to incorporate into the drawing, I stumbled upon Asters which symbolizes love and valor. Giving it to someone you love means, “take care of yourself for me”. I think it is a very sweet message and connotes how deeply the giver cares for the person.
I took a picture with my old digicam, but the original is much lighter and vibrant in color.
What does Kawaii mean to you?
Adding this to my very long bucket list of things to do on a holiday! Kawaii is an expression I often use for many things that inspire me. I have a weakness for anything kawaii! You can also join the kawaii campaign by reading the instructions on the link above. :)

Found this gorgeous jacket at Marks and Spencer. Fits like a glove and I look incredibly chic. (I am trying to look like Song Yi in My Love from the Stars) The price is 6k so I took pictures in the hopes of getting a tailor to copy it.
My grandmother, who just celebrated her 77th birthday, had a better shopping experience. Bought almost 10k worth of stuff at Marks and Spencer c/o bob, my uncle, mom and brother. I already bought her clothes in Mango so was exempted from handing their credit card to the cashier. Such a wonderful birthday gift indeed! :)
Working on my next commission. I keep looking back at these images to keep me inspired.
Crossing my fingers that I’ll produce something to make my client happy. I’m still a newbie but little by little I am learning to let go of our fears and accept challenges.
