Hold Me Close. (A ValentiMes Post)

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Currently making mustache necklaces to add to my stuff-to-sell for tomorrow's first day of Animo Bazaar. Packing my panindas when I realized that I lack more brown bags! :P It has been a year already since I had my Anagon paper bags made, and now they're almost gone!!!

Speaking of paper bags...Do you live in Muntinlupa? Aside from being famous for housing the preso, Muntinlupa is now famous for being Plastic Bag-Free. As in, bawal na ang supot, and you have to bring your own bayong when going to the market (BYOB), or have your purchases wrapped in paper bags. One day, Mom even brought home her groceries in a BOX, haha!

It's something to be proud of, though. Kung kaya ng Munti, for sure kaya din yan ng Pinas! :)

Have you already joined The Capricious Club Anniversary Giveaway? It's Bestie's 3rd blog anniversary, and part of the items to be given aways are Anagon accessories!!!

Oh, here's a sneak peek of the wreath I am currently working on. Hello Cherry Blossoms! :)

Oh, okay! I realized that I was supposed to blog about the VDAY--the day that simultaneously make and break hearts of many worldwide. I am not really a big fan of Valentines Day, and there were Feb 14s that I actually felt emo (sabay nuod ng Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, haha!), but this year I actually don't see the big fuss about it. Meaning, no reasons for me to get BV and feel bad just because I am single and it's love day.

Just like forgetting that I titled this entry as a Valentines Post, I actually also kept forgetting that it's cupid's time to shine na nga pala bukas. In fact, I am happy for all these things that make me busy, productive, and and...unemotional? Not really. I think I am celebrating LOVE in my own way by doing things that are not so easy, but something I am willing to do. For Love. To celebrate life's most beautiful thing. :)

Thank you to my daddykins, mom , ate, Cea, my dearest Barx, my sukis, and my Blogger Barkada for making me feel LOVE--which is actually enough to last me through this year's dragging, kainis-ang-daming-sad, Valentine's Day. 

I am spreading my love to you, you, and YOU. Don't feel sad, love is everywhere. Hope you know that I love you! <3

PS: Hold me close is a line from Power of Love, a religious song I heard when I went to mass today. God's love "surrounds me" all day everyday, a reason enough to celebrate the day of hearts. Happy ValenTIMES Day my blog friends!
