Some Good News and Bad News

Hi peeps!

How was your week? Mine is not that good. My mom left yesterday for Manila after a 3 month stay with us. She's happy that she'll be able to attend my Grandma's 80th Birthday which will be held in Manila. Only two of my aunties, one is in the U.S. and the other in Japan, couldn't make it but they sent video clips for their greetings. We also sent our video greeting plus some of my cousins based in London.

In Scrapping News:

I am on Scrapbook Ideas as a Featured Scrapper. Jess interviewed me and I was so happy to be featured there. Here's the link:

Also, my Indulge layout will be featured at Memory Makers on October 7, 2007. Here's the link:

Thanks to all who left comments and emails with regard to this. :)

I just got an email from a magazine and they are interested in one of my pages for publication next Summer 2008. I was shocked when she mentioned the amount they'll pay for it. But it's not really the money but the recognition that makes me sooo happy. That is soo kewl!

The weather is quite good today, we are opting to go out after hubby finishes watching his super Saturday sports schedule (2 ALCS baseball games and F1 qualifying).

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great weekend!

It's been a LOOONG TIME!

Hi peeps!

It's been a loooong time since I last added a post in my neglected blog. Life is a bit hectic on my side of the world. A lot of things happened the past weeks. I have been very busy preparing for my Grandma's 80th Birthday. She'll be celebrating her Birthday in the Philippines and will drop by Tokyo for a week on their way back to the States.

I am thankful that my SIL helped me out with this, and now everything is set. I made her invites for the party which will be held in my Uncle's Condo (Clubhouse). My Aunties and Uncles will be arriving too. My uncle offered a free ticket for me so I could join them. I asked Rein if I could fly to Manila and leave her with my Mom and she replied with an emphatic "NO", Mama-Stay!

My niece will also celebrate her 7th Birthday next week. Her party theme is Princess Jasmine. I also made her invites and another one for a friend who will be having a baby shower for her sister.

My Brother passed the Nursing Board Exam and we'll be having his oath taking tomorrow at the Araneta Coliseum. I am really proud of him!

We are planning to spend our Christmas vacation in the Philippines and Rein is super excited to be with our family once again.

On Scrapping News:

Anytime this week, I will be getting 2 magazines (different companies) with Rein's Layouts. I got 4 publications. Another good news is I was contacted by Digital Scrapbook Magazine and one of my pages will be for publication early next year. Sooo happy!!!!

I have some more good news to come. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great week! :)
