{Intimate Event} Erick & Mags

 "It is at the edge of a petal that love awaits." William Carlos Williams

I find it amazing that a stem of flower can bind two souls, calm a wounded heart and turn a frown into a sweet smile. There is an infinite beauty beneath a bud that is starting to bloom and a lingering enchantment to its scent. These are the reasons why I think flowers are synonymous with love and affection.

I almost swooned the first time I saw giant paper flowers at the Green Wedding Shoes. I knew I had to make them - let them be a part of someone else's love story. It was through my godparent, Ninong Rex that I met Erick and Mags. They were open to embrace this exciting and lovely paper art. And so I made these flowers by hand. Each petal crafted with so much patience, love and joy. I had doubts in myself and was scared that this might turn into a disaster but with each flower I formed came sparks of hope. Knowing that the Lord is guiding my hands, I dreamt that the giant paper rose can be worthy of the beautiful bride that Mags' is.

Thank you Erick and Mags for your trust and letting me be a part of your celebration of life and love =)

{Shop DIY} Hand-stamped Favor Bags

I always have been an eager Etsy buyer and wannabe seller. It's a great venue in finding creative people and unique crafts. I've been surfing every nook and cranny on the look out of unique handmade items and craft supplies that are not available in Manila. And my oh my, have I found a LOT!!! It's kinda weird that I save money to buy these when my friends would be busy shopping for clothes, bags and shoes. Well, I am an addict in need to be relieved of my craft obsession... (wink)

Etsy is my happy place but shopping is teeny tiny bit expensive because aside from the item cost, you need to pay for shipping which is heavy on the pocket. I recently had a eureka moment when I thought and decided to bring some crafts available here in the Philippines =)

Brides and grooms will definitely find a lot of handmade items in Etsy they can use and enjoy on their wedding - buntings, photo props, cake toppers, craft supplies, and the list goes on and on. Let me share to you today my hand-stamped paper pouches that are perfect as favors bags for candy buffets and dessert stations. Aren't they pretty? =)

Colors that are currently available are black, sepia and red. More designs and colors will be offered in my shop soon!
