Scrapbooking Workshop and more

Scrapbooking always seemed to be¬†last in my activvity list ¬†because, for me, this kind of hobby is¬† expensive.¬† With¬†all the available digital scrapbooking, why should I¬†spend for this art? ¬†That’s what I thought.¬†¬†¬†When I received an invitation¬†¬†to attend a¬† Scrap N’ Tell worshop, I gave it a try with hope that I’ll get to know what made others love this activity.¬†¬†¬†¬†My daughters who are lovers of scrapbook¬†insisted to attend. ¬†¬† If you are a reader of my blog,¬† you surely know about my daughter’s project¬†about scrapbooking and from there, she took this activity by heart.

At first I find it tiring and stressful to do. ¬†Glad I made it!¬† It turned out so enjoyable and now I’m wanting more and looking forward to do all my¬† scrapbooking.¬† Yes, now!¬† Not tomorrow, later or soon.

It was¬† hard to follow at first and couldn’t ¬†relate but later on after¬†¬† every¬† details given to us from the artist,¬† I couldn’t believe it.¬† I made such a very beautiful mug, well at least in my own opinion.¬† I’m just¬† so proud of my work.

Project :  Mug or Pen Holder

 

Who would think that this card board ¬†could¬† turn¬†into a ¬†very beautiful mug,¬† a¬†very cute keepers in my working table, don’t you think?¬† Wait till you see my finished product.

 

One of the mugs here is mine.   Which of the mugs below   is the cutest?

At the second part of the event, we were given step by step instruction on how to make a scrapbook.

We followed carefully all the instructions and made a beautiful  scrapbook out of the materials given to us.

My seatmate Jing took it by heart, and me too.   I enjoyed a lot and it was my first time to do scrapbooking.

That’s all folks! I will post another entry on how to make a scrapbook step by step in my ¬†next post. Get ready with your materials¬† and¬† let’s do scrapbboking together!

bayanihan


Bayanihan means bayan or town, a community. Bayanihan originated in old tradition where people consisting of 20 or more, lift the entire house to move to another location.

Bayanihan does not only mean lifting the house, this means cooperativism or helping voluntarily when the family is in need.

If you remember during  typhoon Ondoy,  help keeps pouring to victims, and that is also Bayanihan.

During typhoon that devastated Manila, people from all walks of life came together to help, and that only proves that bayanihan do exist.

In old bayanihan tradition,  after the people move the house to new location, the family show their gratitude by preparing food for feast and they eat together in happy mood.
