Why do I consider these my bazaar best sellers?

...they have been sold out in all the bazaars my cousin and I joined. More so, I still get orders left and right. Doing them brought so much fun, therapy indeed!

Presenting my bazaar pride and joy! My beaded serving spoons, forks and cake slicers. Truly great Christmas finds!

My Bag Charms

I use different kinds of beads from hand painted ceramic beads, glass beads, majorca pearls, native beads to plastic beads in all shapes and colors. I retail them at Php 60 per piece. They are found in all the bazaars that Creative Outlet joined. One of my best sellers to date, these bag charms are labor intensive. That's why I often tell my buyers that I made each piece with a lot of love and perseverance.

Here are some of the pieces my husband Din photographed.

If you are interested just send an email. :)

Mobile Phone Charms for Psorphil's Anniversary

It all seem that I'm always always busy with beading, joining bazaars and selling my works of art. It certainly is not the case. Though it looks like I'm always thinking of beading and the like, I also think of my psoriasis online group Psorphil. The people behind the group are always in my mind and heart.

It was sad that I wasnt able to join my "family" with the recently concluded Psorphil Anniversary, NPPC Symposium and Fellowship Night, World psoriasis Day Funwalk 2008, Psorsports 2008 and PsoReach for the Elderly. The different activities were celebrated in about a week last month. Though I wasn't there to be with them physically, I was definitely with them in mind and heart. I longed for the pictures of the events to come out in the members' individual web accounts. It was a joy to look at the pictures and read their different comments on each picture.

Though I was not there, I made sure that a part of me is physically there with all of them. I made a couple of cellphone charms for the members who participated at the WPD Funwalk 2008. Below are the pictures my husband Din took before I gave them the charms.

I hoped everyone who got one liked it 'cause I enjoyed making them. I hope to be with the group in next years' round of activities.

Bazaar Caravan

Here are the different bazaars Creative Outlet signed up for.

First stop will be this coming weekend, October 11 and 12 at the Shekinah Christian Training Center, this will be a bazaar and garage sale benefit for the students of Shekinah. This event will help fund the very talented students of Shekinah who will be chosen to join the annual convention.

Second stop will be at the Delicacies Village of Tiendesitas at Pasig City on October 25 and 26 from 11am-11pm. This will be the third stint of Creative Outlet at Tiendesitas. My cousins and I have made so many friends during our first and second bazaars....hopefully we will be able to see them again plus of course their extended friends and relatives.

Third stop will be at the Paskong Pilipino Bazaar at the World Trde Center, Roxas Blvrd. on November 7 - 9 from 9am - 7pm. This will be our first time to join such a big bazaar. And we are very excited on how would we be able to fare at such big event as this. By far, this is a dream come true for Creative Outlet. My cousin Lia and I have been dreaming of joining this bazaar since last year and it was just only now that we had the guts to say 'yes', we will do it! Cross your fingers for us...lets all have a goooooooood time!

Fourth stop will be at the Shekinah Christian Training Center again! Yes, we will be spending yet another two days with the students, teachers and parents on November 13 and 14. It will be be a fun filled day for everyone. Busy busy busy day for all!

Last stop will be at the Valle Verde 5 Christmas Bazaar on December 13 and 14 at 1030am - 1030pm. This will be Creative's second VV5 bazaar. We made good last year and we are hoping to make the best this year.

See you there and lets have a fun filled Christmas shopping!

Then and Now: Layouts

Sharing with you my old/new layouts....old because I made most of them last year and the year before last, new because they still inspire me to be creative and make a 'new' layout.

Some of these layouts I used as entry for layout challenges offered by different Philippine Scrapbook Store Theme/Manufacturer Contests.

Happy Anniversary Psorphil

Happy 3rd year Anniversary to my Psorphil Family!!!!

Three years of friendships, successes and a never ending desire to spread the word that: Psoriasis is NOT contagious!

I am glad to be part of this brilliant community. Where people do not measure beauty by the color and condition of their skin but through the beauty and sincerity of each one's heart. I am a very proud member of Psorphil. Proud to help the community in their quest for awareness, understanding and equality.

I'm a proud psorkeeteer!

Awareness Campaign

It has been days that I last posted anything here.

I am busy helping in a project of my Psorphil family. We will be launching our Hug Me...I'm Not Contagious campaign on August 16, 2008 at the Makati Elks Club, Makati City, Philippines.

We have invited the Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, doctors from the Philippine Dermatological Society, journalists, celebrities and patients who suffer from psoriasis. There will be a forum on how media can best lend their hand to spread awareness that psoriasis is not contagious. That we are not contagious. That I am not contagious.

I am hoping this project will be a success. There are so many Filipinos who suffer from psoriasis, hopefully this will enlighten many people about the disease, its effects on patients and how they can best help spread awareness.

In this light, I would like to invite you to this event. Help us spread the word. Hug Me...I'm not Contagious.
