I love Do-It-Yourself stuffs. If I think I could mimic and create the things I adore most in stores, magazines or wherever in the wide network sites, I’d try to make time to do these crafts on my low days. They’re like therapy. They make me happy!
My DIY accessories started when I joined my elder and little sisters in Manila because they were both already into it those days. They like sell them and all. My elder sister January taught me how to make them pretty little earrings and bracelets and necklaces, and even until now I search for how-to-do-them videos on youtube and even by just looking into photos in sites like Pinterest, everything in Martha Stewart’s site, and other Google images. 🙂
One of my other DIY loves include the idea of putting personal touches on your own events like weddings, birthdays and other parties – like maybe a farewell party? I go crazy over beautiful and pretty dessert tables or dessert buffets. I even have a board on this at my Pinterest account because they make me smile (aside from the fact that they make me crave haha).
In connection to that, and since this is a flashback post, our ate January spent more than a month vacation just last December and when it was already time for her to go back to New Zealand, I wanted to make sure we’d do something special (aside from the many special times we spent on those days 🙂 ) and so the DIY-obsessed side of me got expose (I think). And since it was still just right after new years and we’ve like eaten around in Butuan City already, we decided to just have a little Despedida party at home. I think there were a lot of ideas playing in my mind but because of the limited time already I only managed to put up a mini dessert table (and grabbed the cakes from the fridge haha – oh and our little sister Johanna added the Toblerone touch).
And then the feast started right after the pictorials so here’s a peak of what happened then. 🙂
