19 years and counting

I have been all consumed in creating some designs this weekend for different products. Yesterday many ideas went nowhere but today I felt like I gained some headway. I love experimenting with photoshop and illustrator using layers to create interesting effects like the one above. I have a few ideas to try out on products. This…

To Honor or not to Honor that is the question.

Arghhhh! When will this semester be over? I am so anxious for it to be done. I am skipping class again tonight. I submitted my last project and I noticed that working on the project is the main agenda so I am not going to bother. It seems useless. I am supposed to be doing an…

Happy Mother’s day

Here it is. My little stall in the http://www.cottagecrafts.com/ in San Jose, California, I am hoping that this is going to be a good start to the scarves and accessory business.

The rollercoaster I am referring too is the rollercoaster of emotions that our family is going through with two of the cousins graduating and leaving home for college. Today I attended a religious ceremony at my nieces catholic school. It…

Out of sorts

  This is not a food blog but I had to share this because it was so yummy to have a lamb chop for the first time in a long time. The kiddo was out until midnight so lovie and I went to dinner at a local little Japanese restaurant. The lamb chops were an appetizer…
