Mere days before Christmas and we're all about the get-togethers and the gifts we will be giving at the gatherings. Time is scarce to spend it on the traffic jammed roads and navigating the crowded malls to buy gifts, wrappers and tags. Good thing there's online shopping! I could buy presents from the comfort of my home and in my jammies. Also, I have a stash of paper bags, papers and ribbons from opened presents that could be reused. Saving the earth one gift at a time, I say! :-D For … [Read more...]

It will be furnished with a library … [Read more...]
Girl With Curls, Cymplified!
Girl With Curls I know a girl, petite and fair. She's a girl with curls. She likes to comb her hair, and wear pretty pearls. I know a girl who likes color on the nails of her hands; on her head of curls, red, pink and violet bands. I know a girl choosing dresses over pants and T-shirts. Round and round she goes, twirling her princess skirts. This girl enjoys good music and sings with good melody. She throws tantrums sometimes, but is sweet to her family. This girl … [Read more...]
Hand Lettering – Love It Or Leave It? Cymplified!
Is hand lettering for me? For you? As with new food, new experiences, new learnings that we get a taste of, this question would certainly whisper in our thoughts. Is it for me? When I attended the hand lettering workshop by Make It Blissful and Abbey Sy last March, I was given a background and some tools on the subject.

Fabulous Freebies, Cymplified!

I confess that I have a collection of fonts, backgrounds and vector images on my laptop and hard drive. This is my reminder to clean them up. But, before I do, I added more because they're beautiful. Who knows? I might need them one day. That's how I justify it. Haha! And, they're free, so why not? :-) One of my go-to site for downloading images is Creative Market. Click … [Read more...]
