I’ve been a lot busier than usual with everything that I had to do (my VA / Virtual Assistant biz, baby stuff, house chores, errands, holiday activities, etc). Our baby Tuz is a lot more active (climbing everywhere he could climb), he easily gets bored now with his old toys (we may need to resell his jumperoo and walker which he only used quite a few times before) and he’s fussier than usual. He cries then laughs then cries again for no apparent reason.

I did promise myself to update this blog every day (6 days/week), and this is one of the topics I’m really interested in. I first discussed soap making last week — how I started, my history with it and our plans about it. You can read about it here:

I love to make beaded accessories; I like to sew simple things like bags, skirts and organizers; I like cooking my own dishes and making my own healthy fruit and vegetable concoctions; I like doing my own party decors; I like making my own gift bags and other accessories. And whenever it’s possible and feasible, I turn my DIY projects into a small home-based business. One example is NIBs (Nature in Bottles) Home Spa Products that I turned into a small home-based business in 2003 and got featured in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Lifestyle section that same year.
