This is an accomplishment, lol! Finally my mojo is back (i hope for good). Like i said in my previous entries i am busy downloading freebies and oh my gosh they are all beautiful !!
This is my 4-year old niece (AIDEL REIGN) and one night i told her i'm going to take her pics and it's a miracle she said yes and posed for me. There are times she doesn't like to be photographed and i'm so happy she cooperated and i love all her poses.

I started downloading since yesterday and oh boy i can't really count how many gigs i have downloaded. I'm unstoppable !!!! We at the Phil. Digiscrappers Forum always love freebies and our Freebie Queen Cherry Rose is generous enough to give us some links to the blogs that has freebies.
My problem now is how to organize them fast and how can i use all of them? hahaha.

It is always fun to see and hear from her. I always call her "Betchay" and there are times when we go at the hospital together and have the same night duties. She's a great friend and very resourceful one.
After college she landed a job right a way as a Med Tech. at a gov't. hospital in Marikina and she was there since the late 80's lol.
She just recently resigned at her job at the hospital bec. her whole family will be migrating in CANADA this coming August. When i learned that she will be migrating i can help but to be sad and happy for her. I will dearly miss her but i know e-mail is just a click a way to keep in touch..
Anyway, if I will be in his shoes, how would I survive? This will be really tough one since no one can live comfortably without any resources on hand but once the situation arises I know my survivor instinct would come out. Probably I will assess the area first, I will try to watch how people react and go on with their lives. Since I have no money to buy food, hmm I guess I will have to use my charm in asking people for food or money. I will make friends and will ask them to spare a little money for me; I know someone has a heart of gold. I will walk around the city, who knows I might stumble into a treasure hidden somewhere? Haha That would be awesome. Or maybe I can pick up some empty bottles and sell it on a junkshop in exchange for money. Sleeping??? I can maybe go to a park or something and just find somewhere I can sit or take a nap. I know i will find a way to survive.

Anyway, the Cafe Press is already open where you can buy stuffs life Shirts, Coffee Mugs, Tote/Scrapping Bags, Clocks and many others. I was really surprised to see my winning design (LOGO) already printed on their merchandise and i am so happy and delighted.

This is the design that i made using my "SWEET BIANCA" kit, isn't it cute?? (hehe)
Here are some of the stuffs where you can see the LOGO that i made, so everytime you see this design i am the one who made it hehe.. You can buy these stuffs at the Scrapping Garden Cafe Press.

We heard mass this morning and as always before the ceremony ended, all of the fathers were asked by the Priest to come forward in the altar and they were given a short prayer and blessed with Holy Water. If only my dad is still with us he should have come with my bro in front. Miss you dad!!

Bribe them with toys, foods, candies??
Hey there mommies, I know some of you might be guilty one way or another in bribing your kids just to go to school (esp. if their kids are just starting to enter school). My sis-in-law is a good example of that bec. her 4 year old daughter who is in Nursery sometimes doesn’t like to go to school. Although she already finished her Toddler year, going to school in a different environment, new teacher and classmates makes her a bit scared that she cries before entering the room.
When she was in Toddler last school year there are countless times that I often see her cry before or after school. She always has a candy or a small toy that they bought before going home. I believe it is not quite right since the kid is so used to buying things and I call her nga “bilmoko girl”.
My sis inlaw would tell me just let be as long as she will not cry and go to school. I can’t argue with her about this all the time bec. she is also having a hard dealing with the situation.
What are your thoughts about this and how do you keep your kids to go to school?
Online Storage is a good way to go and a very good investment especially if you have company. Although there are several online back up that are readily available, IBackup also serves an online backup storage and it also offers and provides easy drag-n-drop and familiar explorer interface to work with your online data thus improving your productivity.
Koko Pimentel and Migs Zubiri are fighting hard for the much sought after 12th slot in the Senate. Both camps are trying their best to guard the last remaining votes that they will get and in no time the winner will be announced. I voted for both of them in the last May 14th election and who ever wins i hope they will do go in making laws.

My life has been so busy but boring these days with all the chores and daily routines. Gosh, it's never ending hahaha.
Anyway, one of the ways to relieve my stress aside from reading magazines, watching TV, digital scrapbooking is by taking some photos of whatever i like,
it could be my nieces and nephews, nature, flower and plants.
These are the Bromeliads that are growing at my brother's small garden and actually they are not hard to grow. They just need ample amount of water, sun and your love and soon they will grow fast. (Click the photo to enlarge them).
I know i still have a lot to learn about photography in terms of the lighting, focusing etc. but who cares and what the heck just took these photos bec. they make me happy.
The picture below is called San Francisco plant that grows in our garden.
Mom has a green thumb so her plants grow healthy. We have a row of these beautiful plants.
What about you, what are your ways to relieve your stress?
PINGO is helping their consumers get the best low call rates in fact; they have the Rate Watcher that will help us save our time in comparing prices form other our prepaid call cards. Mobile users also can save up to 90% on your International cell phone calls. What else do we need with all these great savings? Keeping in touch is just a phone call away and PINGO let it happen in much lesser cost. I also have some relatives in Australia and Saudi Arabia and this prepaid calling card would be a good alternative for their current cards.

This is so sad…. I finally resigned from the Scrapping Garden Design Team. I emailed the owners that I can no longer keep up with my duties at the store and it will be unfair for other designers who are doing their job there. My kits will be put down from the store and it breaks my heart, but what can I do.
Although I didn’t earn as much from designing, I had fun selling my works in the store for quite sometime. For those you bought some of my kits/elements, I dearly thank you all and thanks for those who appreciates my work. I will continue to design if time permits, I will be scrapping also if my mojo will back again.
One day if I will have time, I will upload them and give them as freebies, so watch out for it.

Today we celebrate our 109th Independence Day. It was on June 12, 1898 when our Pres. Emilio Aguinaldo declared our independence and sovereignty from the Spaniards in Kawit, Cavite.
Actually it was really every July 4th that the independence was celebrated but Pres. Diosdado Macapagal signed a law in 1964 moving our independence day every June 12th. And now July 4th is known as the Fil-American Friendship Day.

That is the question that is in my head up to this time. For those that didn't know yet, I am a digital scrapbooking designer at the Scrapping Garden since Aug. of last year and have been selling my kits there since. And as a designer there are other duties that i need to do aside from just having my kits for sale there.
The thing is, I got an e-mail this morning from one of the TSG owner, and she is asking me if i am still interested in selling my kits at their store. Oh my i am sooo guilty, to be honest i have not been participating in the store's activities, mega kit's submission, posting and commenting on galleries. The reason is i became too busy with blogging, paid blogging, life around here and work that is why i have not been fulfilling my duties...
I know it is not fair for other designers there and members who are active in the site. I still have to think this over before i will email her back. Am i stepping down??? I don't know yet. I love designing so much but life can be tooo busy at times and i need to prioritize something...You can see my works here.
Gosh, this is hard.. Can you give me your thoughts on this??? Thanks.

Actually that's what i do, if I'm already bored with my endless work in my pc. I am in front of my pc for almost 8-10 hrs. a day since my "real" work involves a computer. There are times when i feel like I already married my desktop lol.
Usually when someone asks me where is my husband I even made a joke that the pc is my husband. And they replied, that's the reason why i don't have husband yet..lol Of course there are times I need to stand up and do some stretching.
There are times i was able to chat with fellow Pinay digiscrappers and has some good conversations with them. FYI, i don't go to chat rooms anymore, the last time i was there i think was 2002. I met some creepy and jerk people there so i'd rather stay away from them now. There are more important things in my life that needs my time.
Gosh, my "Iron Deficiency Syndrome" strikes again last night.. Nope, it's not a disease guys, actually it's my laziness to iron my mom and my clothes..yikes!! Actually last night i was suppose to iron my clothes after dinner but after eating i watched TV on the sofa and watch "Here Comes the Bride" Tv show on Channel 11. Little did i know I was already sleeping on the couch in few minutes.
Later on, I suddenly wake up and mom asked me if i'm still going to do the ironing. I told her I am too lazy and sleepy already. After few minutes i got up and went straight to my room and sleep.
I woke up again at around 11:00 pm and turned on TV and watch the Pinoy Big Brother for a while. I immediately remembered the mountain of clothes to be ironed but i am so lazy to even get up again. How i wish our clothes were all wash and wear so i will have not a hard time telling myself to that boring task of ironing..lol

Anyway, the courier will pick it up and will return to me after 6-8 working days. I need to renew it early bec. if you read my sad story in my other blog (Simply Jen) i might fly to Australia this year.
Anyway, actually Angie, posts a comment on my blog coz she also bought a domain at 1and1 for only $5.99/year and we had the same dilemma about how to make our domain work properly. We email each other back and forth the last few days about how can we solve it. And just this morning she emailed me and gave me a blog link that has a tutorial on how we can make it work since the author had the same problem.
So right now my domain http://jennys-corner.com will now work with or w/o www.
I also want to thank THE FINANCE BUFF for your easy to follow instructions on how we can set our own domain bought from 1and1.com
