How do you deal with a holiday hangover after all the Christmas festivities? You spend one Saturday in January teaching fun and unique ways to document your holiday memories, of course! That’s exactly how I spent one morning back in January.
In collaboration with Craft Party PH and Life Documented Manila, I taught my first ever workshop since moving back to Manila. It was a morning filled with lots of pretty paper, stamps, embellishments, family photos, stories, and women eager to tell and keep their Christmas memories creatively.
Hello, my name is Anna and I’m a craft and office supplies hoarder. It’s not much of a secret, really. I am one of those people whose trip to the mall isn’t complete without dropping by the craft store or the office supplies store. And I never leave empty-handed. With craft supplies, I’m like a kid in a candy store — it’s hard for me to resist and say no.
Sometimes I pick up pretty paper or clips, other times it’s some random stationery or cute little trinkets. I bring them home and they all just pile up or get forgotten while they hide away in cluttered drawers.
Here’s a a little confession: I love I’m obsessed with clear stamps! I favor them over rubber stamps, because being transparent, they allow you to see precisely where you’re stamping. No more guessing whether your images are positioned accurately, making the whole stamping process faster. They are also easy to clean, and take up very little storage space. Plus, they come in lots of different cute designs and sets!
