So I did it. I jumped into the daily challenge bandwagon. Instead of taking photos or looking fashionable or drawing, I chose to do something that I have virtually no experience with: carving rubber stamps.
Yesterday was the 20-day mark.
My dear Philippines has many wonderful crafters. I have interviewed some of them for the blog. We also have our fair share of handmade supporters. While we may not be very progressive as far as independent shopping is concerned, many people here do appreciate uniquely designed and lovingly handmade merchandise. Fantastic for a handmade seller like me, of course. And even more fantastic? We are seeing many e-commerce platforms that cater to handmade crop up.
One of these is PHINDIES. Theirs is a unique platform, giving buyers a chance to buy handmade items at a discounted price but only for a period of seven days.
This week, I am one of the featured sellers over at PHINDIES. I am selling my rectangular corner tab pouches at a discounted price of P120 each.
Check out the pouches HERE. And while you’re there, get to know the other amazing handmade sellers that have been featured on PHINDIES as well.
Thanks for your support!
When I moved my craft area to the living room, I was reminded of the fact that my sewing pattern organization is all sorts of ridiculous. They were in various envelopes, inserted in craft magazines, rubbing shoulders with my scrapbook paper. I had to take control of the situation by making this filer-type storage.
Here’s how I turned this cat litter box into a DIY sewing pattern organizer:
First, you will need: a cat litter box (mine was the 28-lb one by Arm & Hammer), craft knife, wrapping paper, clear tape, paper tape (optional), metal ruler
1. Cut the top part and about 3/4 of the side of your cat litter box. These boxes are tough so you will need to be careful with your cutting. Try to be as precise as possible. Use a metal ruler for guide.
If you follow me on Pinterest, you probably have an idea what my dream house is. Open floor plan (loft optional), drowning in colors and knick-knacks, eclectic, rustic, and unapologetically Bohemian. A studio or a workshop that doubles as a living space is my dream home, to be exact.
Which is why we transformed the general living area of our house into one giant working section. In other words, I brought my mess central into the largest part of the house.
