The One Who Was AppROACHed

Why have your picture taken with Manny Pacquiao when you can have one with the man who made Manny Pacquaio?

Si Freddie Roach lang naman...

Have a great week ahead! :)

The One About the Vintage Volkswagen

To start off the new week, I'm posting something "old." I'm loving everything vintage nowadays so last weekend, when Teddy Bird and I dropped by the mall after our third gastronomic breakfast feast at the Legazpi Sunday Market (think Angus tapa by Chef Laudico, quarter pounder burgers, dumpling soup, pork cuapao, lamb lasagna, ratatouille quiche, wagyu paella, butter and chocolate croissants, fresh yogurt shake, stir-fried vegetable noodles), my heart leapt when I saw this beauty at the parking lot...

It's not just any car. It's a vintage Volkswagen.

I told you so...

It's so pretty. It reminds me of the happy vintage fabrics I hoarded for my sewing classes. I personally think that people who drive vintage cars are classy. I love it. To bits. :)

The One About Another Diaper Cake

My cousin and his wife are expecting a baby girl in a few months. When I was invited to their baby shower, I knew right away the perfect gift to give. I made a diaper cake before and you can read about that here. That was first ever blog post. For this baby shower, I made a new diaper cake.

Clearly, it's way better.

I used cotton towels to wrap the diapers and snuck in three teddy bears in between.

One of the bears was a toothbrush.

For the top layer, I used BPA-free milk bottles and bottles of baby lotion, baby wash, and baby powder.

I had so much fun making it! I still have a lot on my (craft) plate, though: recipe binder pages, a library kit for a friend, crafty invite proposals to my maid of honor and bridesmaids. Oh, and I still haven't shown you yet the stuff I've sewn at fashion school! Backlog galore!

Until then, happy crafting! :)
