Last month, I spent an afternoon with my family and the Ledonios at Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo. It’s a must-visit when heading over to Antipolo. Here are a few of my favorite moments from that day!
When I got back to crafting a few years ago, the first big project I took on was The Friendship Bracelet Book. When I designed and made all those thirty or so bracelets, I went straight to DMC Philippines for my thread. I had remembered stealing the same ones from my Mom’s cross stitch thread stash and used them to make my bracelets instead.
You might not believe it, but Teacher Emma was my preschool teacher. She hasn’t changed one bit. She’s still the same gentle, caring and supportive teacher from, yes, 25 years ago. About a decade after being my teacher, we found her back in my family’s life when my brother, Milo, ended up going to the preschool (The Little Farm House) she later opened. My friend Ninna and I even took up Kumon when they started offering it at their school.
So, my aunt managed to find a copy of this Negosiyete reel from the early 90s. I guess I have been “teaching” crafts for a LOOOONG time. The file’s audio was really, really, really bad. Did a music overlay instead.
