Trying Hard

I can maybe call myself a hobbyist. I love to click even if I'm just using an old digital camera. I took these photos last March at the cemetery and edited the colors via PS. I am really wanting to get a DSLR camera which I have already posted here.

One reason I'm posting these is because I'd like to learn more in terms of photography and PS too. Your comments and suggestions are definitely welcome. Thanks for your time.

Get Back That Passion

Crafts (including sewing) has been one of my passions. I'd like to be able to create dresses for my kids just like the way my Mama did for me when I was little. But, where did that passion go?

I have been feeling a little lazy to get started with it. Part of me insists to shrug the feeling off.
And I really want to. I need more positive energies to overcome this feeling. I need to move on. I have to act or soon I will regret not embracing all the opportunities in front of me.. of not using the talent (if it is indeed a talent) bestowed on me. I'd like to remember my dearest inspiration and I want her to be happy for me... and proud of me too.

This passion for crafts and sewing made me collect ideas I've seen and read from the internet. The "how to's", "where to's" and "what to's". They are all saved in folders I named differently depending on their categories. I just hate that I find myself overwhelmed that I kept adding more tasks to do when I haven't finished yet what I have already started. Tons of ideas occupies my mind that I can no longer remember where have I stopped on the project that I have initiated.

And I saw a blog post. A contest that is. This could be the spark. This could be a sign for me to get up and move. I don't want to waste more time and energy with nothing to call an accomplishment. With this in mind, I'd like to share with you a Birthday & Beauty Giveaway promo where you could win prizes to start a blog where you can share your own passion for just about anything. Cash prizes are in store too for it has a number of sponsors and...

GT: Fabulous!

This may be a little out of my league and funny but I'm just being honest that my LSS for today is this:

Okay, you can start laughing. LoL! So fab, right? Haha! I normally allow the kids watch Hi5 or listen to their own playlist in the morning and today we did the latter. Since I have a 17 month old darling plus an 8 year old sweetie, the playlist is a mixed of songs they love listening to.
Someone here adores HSM, Taylor Swift and Hannah Montana and I don't have a choice but to listen and sing along with them too. We got a little silly dancing and jumping this morning while singing "Mr. Sun" (Barney's Favorites) as we wait for hubby to arrive from work.
As soon as he did, we then left for the PTC (Parent & Teachers Conference) at Marian School of Q.C. where we were given a copy of the new The Citadel .

And as Ronald drive along the Old Sauyo Road, I found myself singing "Fetch me my Jimmy Choo Flip Flops. Where is my Pink Prada tote? I need my Tiffany hairband then I can go for a floooooooooat!" . Keanna got me into this, I know! Haha! It is her LSS too. And I'm not sure as to how long will this song stick with my senses. Oh wow!

My soon to be Grade 4 daughter's class standing is another story. But for sure, we'll be back at school tomorrow for something fabulous!

Earn from Links & Reviews

I have already posted here that this blog will showcase products of my new hobby which is sewing. Just after a few days, I came to realize to widen my horizon in this blog. All my hobbies will now be included. You may wonder what they are but I too love reading novels, watching series and movies. I also would like to learn more about photography and is dreaming of owning a dslr cam, I guess that's far from reality for now. I am into scrapblogging and can make crafts too (that's when I don't feel really lazy like today).

Yeah! They're quite a list to call but aside from that, I'd like to take the opportunity to buy blog reviews too. I've learned about Link From Blog from my friend G and it is really promising.

Paid reviews

I get to share what I love to do and I can also earn from it. Nice, right? It is a company which started 2008 and is located in Minnesota, USA. And as a blogger, our safety is one of their priorities here. We are definitely free from false advertising since they are legit and ethical. You can get paid through your Paypal accounts as well.

By the way, I have to stop sewing last night since the plug of the sewing machine's adapter got busted, I mean ruined. I got so scared last night that I have to turn off the electricity main source for a few minutes just to be able to remove the "remains" of the plug itself. Whew!
