What I’ve been up to: March 2019

Hello hello! March has been one exciting ride so far. There’s been a lot of changes workwise (more on that in future posts) but I think I’ll be able to post more regularly starting April and I’m looking forward to sharing weekly updates with you. I missed blogging lj style.

Spring has sprung and local trees are in full bloom. There are Palawan cherry trees in the park where I take my lunch walks and they make me smile and stop for a few minutes just to admire them:

I was able to attend Stickercon for the first time! I remember last year when I suffered from major FOMO because I saw how fantastic everyone’s hauls were. This year, I knew I should follow my heart and give it a visit. It was my first time visiting the famous Bayanihan center too, home to a lot of conventions I want to attend so this sparked so much joy.

There were 2000 visitors for this one-day event. That was insane!

(Check out my haul in my instagram account: @mabuhaydiy)

The visit to Art in the Park is an annual tradition for me and my family. I’m listing it here for accountability: Someday, I want to have an exhibit of my works in the park or in a gallery or restaurant somewhere. I want to sell my original paintings and artworks–they’ve been waiting patiently here for someone to love them haha.

The bubbles smelled so wonderful! I could have spent a day just standing there near the bubble machine, I was delighted to see everyone smiling when they saw the colorful bubbles near the entrance. 🙂

I also won a hand poured half pan watercolor set from Daniel Smith! It was such a great feeling knowing that gorgeous palette is now mine, since Daniel Smith is one of my fave brands. Thanks to @des_artroom for this!

Am leaving you with these stickers of encouragement from @edenstreet and @pluma_ph. Have a wonderful week ahead! Talk to you again very soon!

Soapmaking adventure!

I made my own soaps last weekend and it was such a magical experience. I wasn’t able to take a lot of photos because I was in the “flow” state, and totally enjoying myself.

Here are some of the soaps I made. Top to bottom: Cool seasalt breeze, Garden blooms in Rose and Jasmine and Yin yang with activated charcoal.

I plan on making more and selling these soon! Stay tuned!
