Sneak a Peek: La Vie En Rose

a glimpse of my work area
here's what's i've been up to lately. one of friends, Vins of Tawambuhay, piqued me to create stationery items. we were supposed to be a tandem, with her coming up with the words for cards/notebooks, but haven't yet brainstormed on our project. one thing stuck to my mind though, her mentioning of La Vie En Rose. the phrase i found out has many possibilities, and here are some. 

i've yet to post the finished bookmarks here and on etsy, but i'd just like to share with you this WIP. thanks, Vins, for the inspiration!

A Drawing A Day2 and 3

Elven Lady; Day2

Grown Shishigami; Day3
due to technical difficulties i wasn't able to upload these last Wednesday, but here they are. with The Hobbit movie looming closer, i feel myself being drawn to draw elves once more. they are indeed a beautiful race. the bottom is an adolescent shishigami, you'll remember that i've painted a young shishigami before, and now he's grown.

i'm taking the Simple Living Pledge

image from blog.kanelstrand.com
starting February 01, i will be embarking on a life-changing pledge, that is to live simply. to be honest, i'm getting tired of the fast-paced lifestyle most of us have, and i feel the need to make things in my life simple, to slow down gather my thoughts and re-think my current way of life.

if you're interested in living a simple life, head on over to Kanelstrand's blog post and take the pledge with us.

A Drawing A Day

in order to keep my creative juices running, this year, i resolved to challenge myself to draw everyday. even small drawings (which i really like, especially at the office) will suffice. and here's the start:

New Year Friend

i made a new friend during the weekend, and i call him Hitler.

 he has black markings (or dirt) underneath his nose, thus the name. he's been a mainstay at our backyard since we feed him tablescraps.

my eyes!

i keep on stealing touches from him, but yesterday he let me scratch his back for a while! :) i wish this is going to be a long friendship.

Happy New Year!

of course i am not the first to greet you a Happy New Year in the blogworld. seems like everyone's beat me to it. but i would like to share with you what i did during the New Year weekend.

the Domestic Goddess has called upon me and helped me whip up this Queso de Bola (Edam in Western countries ) Cheesecake.

i won't be posting the recipe because i got one online and tweaked it without taking into account the measurements of the ingredients i used. i just went according to my taste. good thing i also found this cream cheese which was so divine that i didn't need to strain my arms from all the mixing (sadly i do not have an electric mixer), yet it came out smoothly. i'm not a real fan of queso de bola but this has converted me to like it.
