It’s been a couple weeks since my Mom left. She spent nearly a month here to help me out with a few workshops, events and bazaars. Philippines is on a Holiday High, so we were quite busy managing all the craft sales at the different craft fairs and bazaars, as well as from the I Try DIY Shop. Tutorials took a backseat, but I’m definitely back with a vengeance. Mom left behind this cute wall hanging. It’s such a simple project, I don’t even know why I never thought of it!
When I was assigned an article that included basic container gardening, I instantly went for succulents and cacti. That was a courageous move given that the first echeveria (those rosette looking succulents) I brought into my home survived only a month.
If you’re anything like me, someone who has been wearing glasses or contacts for over 20 years, you must be familiar with the Snellen Eye Chart. You know, that thing with the huge E on the first line. I remember having to go through annual checkups at my school. We’d each sit patiently waiting our turn before having to read the lines, first with the right eye covered and again with the left. It was always the same chart. Always the same set of letters above the red line. I’ve memorized it. D E F P O T E C. I knew I shouldn’t be cheating, but I did.
