Temper, temper..

Lately, we've been having a hard time dealing with Liam's temper tantrums! I really do hope that we'll get past this stage already! They say toddlers are terrible when they turn 2..i think for's 3! hahaha I want the old Liam back, who's always happy not always frustrated or angry. Oh my!!! Dealing with it is so challenging!

How about you? What do you do when you are faced with your little angels' tantrums? :)

Just want to share these wonderful pics taken by marlon during Liam's Halloween party in school!:) We surely had a great time! The costumes of the teachers and kids were really awesome! :)

I'm back!

I have been so busy these past few weeks and so glad that i'm back! So many things to blog about and i don't know where to start! :)

Last weekend, i had my workshop with two girls...they're sisters, Kristine and Sharon!! I had so much fun with them! First time to have two students!:) Unfortunately, hubby accidentally deleted the workshop sad. But I requested the girls to send me pics of what they did....we made cutie dolls, a bear and taught them 2 photo transfer techniques!

It warms my heart when I get lovely workshop feedback! Here's what kristine said:

"I’ve tried clay crafting 2 years ago but after a few tries (I can’t even use the mold correctly) I decided not to pursue with it so I sold most the materials I bought at a fraction of its cost =(. Then just a few weeks ago I decided to give clay crafting another try… w/ my sister we had a workshop with Rocky (RockyBeads) I must admit my hopes were low and didn’t even imagine that I would be able to create a little girl though her blush is awful and a pigbear that was supposed to be a teddybear; I guess all I need is a GREAT instructor =)… Thank you so much Rocky for sharing all your ideas with us, and for being generous in sharing us your techniques =). Regards to your adorable son Liam and your photographer hubby Marlon…"

For this week, I was busy finishing orders and making Liam's costume for the Halloween party in school! Liam wanted a centipede costume and boy was i glad that days before i started making it, he changed his mind!! hahaha! I can't imagine making those tiny legs!! From being a centipede..he wanted to be a spider! Ok with me because to make that costume.. only 8 legs are needed! hahaha
Here's what he looked like wearing it yesterday..

And these are the projects i finished this week..

I'm really looking forward to Liam's semestral break!
Now..i have more time to fix the house and finish orders! haha!:)

Have a good weekend everyone!

Good Friends..

..are hard to find but i'm really glad to have found these girls!:) After so many years, we are still the same! Still as noisy as ever when see each other! (lol) Here's to many, many, many more years of friendship! I wish that someday we'll all stay in one place and see each other more often! :)

He may be hard headed at times.
He may be so active at times that mommy can't keep up with him.
He may also be very naughty.
But all of these make me love him so much more! :)

*thanks daddy for capturing these :)

Here are some of the works of my students!
They are all masterpieces because i know that they all made them with so much love!

Pendants with very unique designs by Anna Eusuya

Such beauties!:)

Lovely steampunk hearts by Jackie Bernardo.
CF inspired!:)

Pretty clips and pendant by Cherry Frivaldo

It really warms my heart when my students email me that they made something really nice after our workshop cause it shows that they learned from the 4 or more hours we spent together! Seeing them apply what they learned is something that i'll treasure forever!:)

Workshop Weekend

I had a super good time once again during my workshop last weekend! Peachy's problem was burnt clay so i suggested that she just use the heat coming from the bottom of her oven. Hopefully it will work!:)
--Here we are busy with always!
-At first she didn't want to make a design on her own..i told her you have to do it so that you'll have a feel of it! Experience is the best teacher!:) Look at what she made! Pretty!
-(we used an image drawn by one of my favorite artists..audrey kawasaki)

While we were busy with our workshop..daddy and liam had a splendid time again together! Look at that happy!:)
