I was able to purchase this gorgeous wooden chocolat party set from comeandplay multiply site. Beautiful hinged wooden box is painted in tempting chocolate browns and sweet pinks. Adorned in strawberries and scallops, it's a great way to store the entire set when it's not being enjoyed.

You are sure to please your sweet tooth with the countless accessories including stackable and interchangeable ice creams, lollipops, chocolates, a 4 slice cake and of course some juicy fruits to keep the taste buds watering. There is also a lovely place setting for 2 of tea cups, saucers, spoons and forks to ensure your afternoon tea party with the Queen is a huge success. Sam will truly enjoy this Christmas gift from moi and her daddy. Can't wait for the actual Christmas day to come!...mas ako pa yung excited eh no?!

Playing with Actions

Just trying to play with some photoshop actions on Sam's high reso photos. Been trying to search online where to download free plug-ins and I stumbled to this site. The author have some amazing photoshop actions that is free for download. This action I used works in both PS and PSE, and softens skin, enhances eyes, and applies a custom vignette. Can't wait to try it on Sam's photo and here what I came up with. Take a closer look and you can see my reflection in her eyes. :p

Sam's new found Hello Kitty Animation Series @ CN

sitting pretty...hehe

We didn't know that Cartoon Network is already airing this Hello Kitty and Friends Animation series. Sam's not used to watch kasi the shows from Cartoon Network because most of them are animes which she's really not into. We just found out early this morning this cute Hello Kitty 3D animation show. I think it's around 9am because that's the time she usually wakes up to prepare for school. Sam was really amazed when she saw her fave chars on TV. She immediately positioned herself to our living room couch and watched the show. She giggles with her eyes really wide-opened and said...WOW!!! mommy...Hello kitty??! I just dunno if this show airs everyday. She always missed to watch na kasi the Yo Gabba Gabba from Nicksplat because the 8:00am airing time which is still early for her. Her usual wake-up time kasi is 9:00am so i guess she can now regularly watch this Hello Kitty show if it airs daily. :)

Sam made it again...

she still looked sleepy here because of the 8am awarding ceremony..hehe

Sam made it again to be included in the Top 5 Most Outstanding Pupils in her class for the 2nd grading period. She's Top 4 for the First Grading Period by the way. But this time, she made it to Top 2 na! ...yey!!! I'm always proud of her ever since but now ...more prouder because she's really doing well in school. She's always making it to a point to be included as one of the best pupil in her class...unconsciously. You know, nursery pupil like her especially at her age of 3 doesn't mind at all if she's doing good in her class. She just know that school is fun with all the play activities, seat works, home works, quizzes and exams are just a routine for her that she really enjoy to do everyday. And as a super hands-on mom like me, I'm not forcing her that much to excel in her class. I'm just doing what I think is right for her young mind what she needs to learn. I'm just so blessed and thankful to God that I have a daughter who can easily comprehends what she learns and it totally reflects in her report card. Her daddy don't know the good news yet (super busy from work daw....hmmp!..haha) and for sure he'll be more prouder than I am. Good job baby and always remember that we're just her to support and guide you all the way. We love you very much!

Easter Bunny on Halloween

Did you already saw an easter bunny during the spooky season of halloween? Well, here she is!! The make up we just bought was actually for me to try and practice on how to do face painting in forms of flowers or butterfiles. This little one and only demo girl requested for a bunny make-up instead...haha! What?...I told her that she don't have a bunny costume to match the make up. But she insisted that she likes the bunny make-up! With the white face, red nose and in ditalyado pa talaga ang instructions nya sa gulay!...what a demanding!

Polka Tots Fashion Show @ Glorietta

Children's Ave models Polka Tots Clothes

Here are some of the pics from the Polka Tots Fashion Show held @ Glorietta Activity center last Oct. 31 @ 4:00pm. Everything went off smoothly and the kids same as the stagemoms and parents enjoyed and really had fun. The kids just have a quick practice just right before the show because mommy april was still rushing to finish the boy's clothes. The girls clothes are really gorgeous and the girls really love to wear them...very comfortable and ayaw na ngang hubarin ng iba yung clothes after the show...hehe!

was about to start

I just had some minor problem with the pics. The fashion show shots, as in the actual show on stage was a bit overexposed!...waaaah! in the brightness was ultra bright and all the stage pic were almost white in color! I forgot to adjust the setting of the cam to automatic mode rather than manual mode before giving it to my sister in law....waaaah! fault! Good thing that photoshop was able to fix it's colors.

of course a pic of my little model with her trademark pose..hehe

These are just some of the pics I have from the halloween event @ Glorietta yesterday afternoon...My goodness, the people was jam-packed all over the mall! Stef and I decided not to let the girls to do their trick ot treating because of the small chances for their loot to get loaded with treats! Thousands of kids were everywhere as in! We just let them do some kiddie activities inside the area of CA station while waiting for the fashion show.
