I Miss Doing This...

There are many things I miss doing back in Manila, And one of them is teaching. I used to conduct classes as part of my DT role for Rekindled Moments. Can't forget the first class I have conducted there. I was so nervous! Actually I get nervous at every beginning of a class... but i just love to teach and share the things I know about this craft. I love the feeling of being able to share what I love doing to my fellow scrappers. Every class I taught was prepared with so much enthusiasm. Even if there were sleepless nights, its all worth it.
Actually, I have 2 more classes for Rekindled Moments that I have to upload - workshops 4 and 5. But I will post Workshop 5 first because workshop 4 materials are more for Valentines post.

A Picture Heavy Post....

This morning was kinda gloomy around here... Good thing the sun came out right before my highschool friend Giselle and I and of course Harvey head off to the mall to buy a couple of stuff. I need to buy Harvey his pair of school shoes. Gosh, a few more days and my son is going to school here. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I really hope he will enjoy schooling here. This is a new experience for both of us. And I really pray to God that all will go well... that Harvey will have fun in school, that he gets good grades, that he gains new good friends and that nothing bad will happen to him.
