Due to exhaustion..

Okay, So I swore I won't rant about exhaustion since its about work but I can't take it anymore. I hope there'd be no more over time next week. I mean, please T.T I only have like 4 hours of sleep everyday since last week.  (╯︵╰) I haven't drawn anything. Painted anything. I just read some of the new books I bought about painting but was not able to apply techniques because of I'm too darn exhausted! I don't usually complain but come on! I'm way way over my caffeine intake, I think my heart's gonna give out any moment.
waaaaaaahh o(╥﹏╥)o 

So, due to exhaustion. I buy stuff. (Which is not a good way to relieve stress, I'm telling you.) I can be an impulsive buyer sometimes. (my friends say so and I often deny it. Hehe) I recently bought books from Book Sale (My favorite =)) and National Bookstore.

I have a wooden drawer that I'd like to paint with acrylics that's why I'm reading about decorative painting.

I'm a cat! I swear!

I almost forgot its my friend's birthday today. I don't really like cats but she does.. very much.. I know I suck at drawing them that's why I had the dialogue balloon say "I'm a cat I promise" or something like that. Haha

To B,
Happy Birthday and may God bless you always!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to my ever dearest mom. We may not live under the same roof anymore and I may not see and talk to you everyday, you'll always be the mother who sacrificed a lot of things to provide what we, your children need. And for that, we will always love you. =)

I washi taped my phone.. again..

Out of frustration for not being able to paint this week. [because of over time at work >.<]
I washi taped my phone.. again.


I'd like to washi tape something else from my stuff. I wonder what will my next victim be. XD

Tomorrow's Mother's Day. Happy Mother's day to my ever dearest mom who never ceases to amaze me and to all Mothers and soon-to-be Mothers out there. =)

I washi taped my phone..

Last week I was looking at my washi tapes and thought of what to initially do with them.
Since I haven't started any scrapbook page yet, I looked at my phone and tried the tapes at the back and here's what I came up with.

Tada! I washi taped my phone.

I tried the colorful ones but they're translucent so I ended up using the dark ones. I'll be trying the other designs soon. Hehe. Seeing this makes me want to buy some more washi tapes but I need to save up for an impending trip. I may buy my next batch of tapes next month or worse by July. nya!! T.T

Washi Tapes Hoarding (~_~)

Haven't posted anything here for a while. Three days? XD Today is May 1. Happy labor day to you all! =)
I thought I'd have the day off but I needed to go to work.

Anyways, this post is not about the labor day but about Washi Tapes! :) I've been planning on buying a lot of 'em. And finally, I did it! I got these gorgeous stuff from Bee Happy Crafts.

Well not all of them actually. The air mail and letters were bought from the Memory Lane Store in San Juan, Manila last march. The oil paper tapes (floral, script, diagonal green and orange) I got from the department store. And the one on the left is a freebie from Bee Happy :)

I noticed that its been over a month since my last post about crafts.  Aside from painting, drawing and creating vector art, I've chosen another hobby. That is scrapbooking. Little did I know how expensive collecting materials can be. Hehe My sweetness looked like he wanted to yell at me for buying too many washi tapes =) But I chose this hobby for a reason. I thought I needed to do choose a hobby where I can use my hands in creating them and something that will teach me how to create layouts effectively. So there you have it. I'm not done buying everything I need to create a page yet. I hope I'd be able to create something soon. ^^

[Note: I haven't painted anything in days. T.T I feel like crying every time I go home and see my painting materials and not be able to use them because I'm so darn tired. >.<
I'll make sure I'll paint everyday starting next week. ヽ(  ̄д ̄;)ノ]
