The tale of the Sad Sunken Cupcakes

Let me tell you a story of the Sad Sunken Cupcakes. Once upon a Monday night, after work, I went to the grocery in search of the Maya cupcake mix. I really just wanted to try it for myself. And so I went and bought the cupcake mix and started baking.

It was doing okay, it was already starting to look like these cupcakes below.

But alas! When I started poking the center with a toothpick, it didn’t come out clean. What could have gone wrong? I gave them more time in the oven until they turned out to be sad sunken little things ๐Ÿ™ [Read more…]

Rainbow Connection {wall art}

Despite the hectic schedules and marathon of events, I’ve been inspired lately. In my daily commute, I always find myself thinking of words, images and what to do with them. Just last night, before sleeping, I got inspired from one of my favorite songs, Rainbow Connection. Oh, how lovely it would be to come up with some wall art, mobiles and other things.
Using the last words of the song, I came up with this simple wall art. ๐Ÿ™‚ My first wall art!
How about you? What inspires you these days? ๐Ÿ™‚

One Sweet Sunday

This Sunday afternoon was my alone time with Lyndel. His Yaya went Christmas shopping while Daddy went to Divisoria to check on something (Heck, he braved the Sunday Christmas shopping crowd! But that’s a different story)

Lyndel and I started our date over lunch. I just woke up from my once-in-a-blue-moon Sunday morning nap. I rustled up a quick lunch from whatever was available in our pantry (our grocery shopping was set in the evening!) I was actually pleased with the results of our super fast pasta dish. I used Century Tuna with Calamansi as the sauce and it turned out great! A light and refreshing lunch indeed! Here’s what I did:ย Sauteed garlic and onions, added the tuna, a dash of paprika and salt, and a pinch of chili flakes, tossed in the cooked pasta, and viola! Lunchy lunch! [Read more…]

Dreaming about my craft station

Only a few friends know this. I have an up and coming decor and accessories line for nurseries and kids rooms. I remember fully well early this year when I was starting on my designs – I’d sneak out of our unit just to create my crafts. I had to do that because I have a super curious toddler and I won’t have any work done when he’s around. There was a time when I camped out of our unit with all of my tools and materials. But it was such a pain as I always had to go back inside when I needed to: use the glue gun, use the flat iron, or work on a proper table.I must have a proper craft station.

ย These days, I find myself wandering to craft sites and pinterest and dream about my craft station. This photo below is my first option ๐Ÿ™‚ Paging Lyndon, this is my dream craft station ๐Ÿ™‚ hehe
