Excited for the Party!

Whew! I can't believe that Jacob's party is less than 3 weeks from now. I am just wishing for 3 three things:
  • No rains,floods,typhoons or any calamities/ uncontrolled situations/incidents on Sept 11 and Sept 12
  • Our invited guests would come and ON Time
  • The Suppliers will me and/or exceed my expectation

Ms. Venus Raj is Gay! Just like Me!

You may wonder why I consider myself Gay?! I am not, and in fact I am a Mother already - but, like Ms. Venus Raj - we both are Gays!

Common denominator with Ms. Raj:
I don't know her personally but I think she has lots of Gay friends like I do - fact?! Major - Major!!

Anyways, I just wanna say "Congrats" to you Gurl, Ms. Venus Raj! You made us proud - and for a while we left bad memories and incidents of Quirino Hostage behind.

I love my Candy Station DIYs!

I just love doing arts and crafts for Jacob's Party!
And now, the big day is near, I'm almost done with my Party DIYs!

Candy Station
-I always wanted sweets for the party, so, aside from the Dessert Station from My Chocolate Heaven, i decided to come up with my version of Candy Station!!

Since, it's a Kid's Party, I just bought 2 glass candy containers and will use more of colorful pail/bucket I bought from Toys R Us for a peso power of P10.00 (US$ 0.22)

Since, I love pulvorons and macaroons, and I just want to present it the way it should be without buying porcelain layers or cake layers.. 
I'm a Supermom/DIY Queen-wanna-be!, I come up with these ideas? Whatcha think?
I'm super loving it!

I met a Bogus Seller and a Buyer All in one Week!

When I thought of selling our items online - one only thing that came to my mind is TRUST.. I need to trust my clients and be patient answering queries, SMS, emails and even PMs. I even ship items to them even if they didn't send a single centavo to me from the beginning - I don't want to question them and I just need to trust my instinct that they will repay what good thing I have done for them.  

But, you can't really avoid people... Bogus Seller and Buyer! Gosh, it's the first time I met both of them and so irritating - can't help but block and send message to them.
How I wish they would have a heart to say sorry or admit they done something wrong - stealing ideas from me and/or she doesn't have money at all!

Sorry to you both.. It's my way of getting back to you....

So pissed...

MY Jacob's Upcoming Party was featured ONLINE!

I am so thrilled!
It's been published thru SP Online
Jacob's Sesame Street Party!!!

I wasn't really expecting it (though, I am hoping.. hehe). Mommyjazz, online contributor and Global Moderator of Smartparenting forum contacted me, that she liked the idea on goldfish and doll centerpieces for a unique/themed Sesame Street Party.

Since, I like sharing thoughts and stories, I relayed everything to her, how I DIYs the party table centerpieces and goldifish giveaway idea.
So lovin's this feeling!

Can I just add I'm a proud Mama!?! Haha

P.S.
It wasn't my first time for SP:
Last May 2010, my letter's been published as letter of the month!
This Aug 2010 , my opinion and thoughts were published on Credit Card 101 topic. 

Congrats to Me!

No time to Blog!

Now I know, It's really hard to earn money.. You might ask, "is this the first time I ever work or have a job?!"
The answer is NO.. But now, I could really say.. I'm having hard time this is..

Right after I graduated from college, I already start working for hospital.. Had some time off(for couple of months) and then back to work until today.. The only thing I hate with my work is the schedule.. It's really hard time to plan vacations.. But at least it's a 8-5 or a 24-hr duty thing.. and it ends there, right after I step out of the room..

Now, that I am putting business of my own, I could say that it is really hard to earn money. I have to be online and deal with different type of clients (most of them are nice :) ) and sacrifice my usual 8-hour sleep routine. I need to be on the clock and on my mobile 24/7 so I could attend to every question they wanted to know from me. I am not complaining.. It's fun! But sometimes I feel guilty.. I'm not a full-time mom anymore! My schedule is now divided to three! family - home - business.

More guilt?! I now set aside my son's party preparation because of our business. I know, he knows, my parents and husband knows, I am doing this for our family..
Moreover, less time to blog! Haist.. please do bear with me..

The Joy of being an Online Seller

Being in Online/Home-based Business is an accidental thing and very new to me.. It just came out one day and POOF! It Blooms!
Nobody expected it - may be it's really meant for me -- and that's really God's plan for me. I super thank Him for all the good things He showers to me and my family.
But if there are joys of selling online, they are also not-so-nice stories behind it.
  • "Makulit (difficult) clients who keep asking but will not buy
  • Persistent clients who wants a special delivery date/schedule or door to door delivery
But are more of the happiness online selling brought tom since i started it a month ago.
  • Getting to  know and meet people from all walks of life
  • Meeting new friends and in someway connected to you
  • Earning money 
  • The smile I put to their faces once they received the items

To my clients, thank you and God Bless! Until next time..
