Happy middle-of-summer, friends. Since April is my new year, I have decided to revive my old series featuring crafty bloggers from The Philippines. We start with the genuinely delightful Mansy, of Hey Kessy fame. She blogs over at MANSILLIANA SUNDAY and is also responsible for the re-ignited craft movement in Manila.
What do you make?
Stoneware plates and pots, brass, and ceramic jewelry, hand-carved stamps, rubbercut prints, papercut artworks, and washi postcards and pendants.
Favorite craft tool?
My craft knife.
Favorite craft supplies to buy or hoard:
Hey Kessy Washi Tape and craft knives. I make sure that I use them and not just hoard them. ;)
Favorite local craft stores:
Hey Kessy and NBS.
Project you’re most proud of:
Stoneware plates, a papercut of Baguio’s map, and washi wedding invites I did for my friends, Iona and Pao.
Music you listen to while crafting:
Jens Lekman. I also listen to poems from the John Giorno Poetry Systems.
Crafts that you want to learn:
Dress making and calligraphy.
Thank you, Mansy!
