Today is tutu making day

Photography by: Michele Achacoso
Model: Carmel de la Cruz

Making alot of tutus for my shop. They're all free size; but i do make customized ones upon request. Heres a pic of one of the first tutus i ever made (around last year). I asked my friend to pose for me, and i took her picture in our backyard! haha. Boy, the first look of my webshop had no theme whatsoever. All the other stuff she's wearing were products that i had for sale too. ahh memories of starting out...

Dizzy girl

I've been working on the "new look" of my web shop the past few days, and right now, my brain is mellltiinngg!!!! Too...much...information... *faints*

design conceptualized by: chlaz

A good doll collector friend of mine, who likes HTML-ing for fun helped create my web shop's new look! I love it! Thank youu~ ♥ But something kept on going wrong with the codes where my site layout would look all jumbled and wonky when viewed with Internet Explorer. So ---i've been playing around with the codes (major self studying + trial and error); and made a slightly revised background, header, etc. This is an incomplete screen shot, but this is my progress so far:

Oh yes, the recurring polaroids. Its a phase! ^_^

Greetings from R and H!


Gahh~ sorry for the behind the scenes photo spamming. And also for my recent obsession of polaroid framing my pictures. I finally got my Microsoft Office running again!~ lol random.
uhh...more polaroid photos by me

In relation to this post, just looked at Yuu's blog, where she posted stuff about Day 1 of the shoot. Love all the pics she took! She has all the nice ones! ♥
Greetings from Yuu and Chi too!
I had Yuu and Chi model some of my products for PIROUETTE, mostly bags and tanktops (the photo here is another outtake, as usual).

Spreading the Pullip Love! My first attempts at clothes making was sewing clothes for my dolls. I have now progressed to creating fashion for "big dolls"!

There once was a hippie...

I dont remember why, but after more than an year of absence, i decided to check out my friendster account. Oh my gosh! It changed!..looks sort of like facebook now. I looked at my old profile pics, and saw many fun photos that i’d forgotten existed.
We all meet people at many points in our life. And there once was a girl named Fatz who loved having photoshoots. We had one at my place maybe 2 or 3 years ago. And I found the photos last night! (only outtakes tho).

First post: A new blog yet again!

In search for the perfect "place" to blog, i have yet again created a new one. Seriously, i really want to have just ONE blog in my lifetime (very idealistic)!

THE BATTLE OF THE BLOGS: This started 3 days ago. Upon waking up one day, i finally had the drive to --finally-- blog. You see, i've been trying to do this for years! But it seems like i had no motivation to continue one...a lack of inspiration. One day i just decided that i wanted to do this (blogging) again, and so i am. I created so many new accounts that day! Wordpress, Livejournal, Tumblr. Since i'm admittedly not that tech-savvy, i wanted the easiest to work with blog that had ready-to-use, FREE templates. haha.
  • Tumblr: I know a lot of people use this, but i just did not have the patience to navigate through this site. Maybe one day i will. But for now, my account there will sadly have to be idle.
  • Livejournal: I like the fact that it has alot of groups where you can discuss common interests; however, most of the groups i want to join arent that active anymore, plus the more active ones are in some foreign language. *dizzy eyes*
  • Wordpress: I actually do enjoy using this...alot. Its so easy to use, navigate...but my problem is that i cant freely fix the layout. It seems like i have to pay a certain amount to do some HTML code-ing. darn. So now...its...
  • Blogger/ Blogspot: So far, so good.... I kind of preffered the easy and diverse template options Wordpress had to offer; however, im slowly getting the hang of using this.
So my top contenders would be: Blogspot and Wordpress. Which one will i stick to, i wonder...
