Postcard

I was going through some of my old stuff and found an old postcard given by one of my old high school friends. I have not received a postcard for a long time. It would be great to get one from someone dear at this time and age when most people rely on email, e-cards and even just Facebook and Twitter or simply texting to send out their holiday greetings for example.

A couple of days ago while I had a break from doing some important stuff that needs to be done before the year ends, I found this postcard printing from printingamerica.com and it made me think of my online friends as well who are into sending and exchanging postcards from all over the world. I was kind of interested before in what they were doing but I just was not able to really find time to dedicate to it. 

I am currently looking for one particular postcard sent by an old dear friend of mine. It was from Germany. It was a postcard sent during Christmas many years ago. It would be great if I would be able to find the other old postcards I have received from my dear and thoughtful friends years ago. That would indeed be a great find! :)  

Gingerbread Man Cookie Kit

 

As they say "No cookie says Christmas more than a gingerbread man cookie. "

Last month during a visit to a Christmas Bazaar at Marco Polo Hotel Davao with my boys, I saw this for sale at one of the stalls. I think this costs around P150. 

My little boy is excited to decorate the gingerbread man by himself later on while we wait for the strike of midnight this new year's eve.

They were also selling a gingerbread house but they have no stock there at that time and I have not visited their store since. This gingerbread cookie decorating kit will do for now. I am sure we will have a fun time doing it later.

Happy 2013 everyone! :)

Music

Music soothes a stressed soul. Yes I am quite a bit stressed right now and music easily helps me relax. It's nice listening to your fave music at this hour as I try to check this - mini which is said to be one of the world's smallest, most affordable Pro Tools LE recording, editing, and mixing systems ever that provides professional sound quality while you are on the road they say. 

How music can soothe and relax the soul makes it a blessing we have in this fast paced life we may live sometimes if not most of the time. Hope your life is filled with music, laughter and cheers especially this Christmas holiday. 

Happy holidays!

Looking Forward to the Weekend

I am so looking forward to this weekend since it will be the start of the Christmas novena masses that is a tradition we try to observe and practice with my boys. I wish and pray for the best of our health for the years to come and more blessings to my family and their families.

I am also looking forward to checking the newly opened branch of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf which opened today. I hope they already have a working WIFI at the coffee shop now. I would love to chill out and relax as I take a break from work with my dear little boy. Hubby is off to work tomorrow. I am looking forward to Sunday for our day off weekend. Yes!

Busy days ahead this December coz before you know it, the holidays will be over. You never want to miss out any of the weekends this month spent with your loved ones right?

Taking a Break

I am taking a break, a much needed break. No I am not going to light up something like one of those Rocky Patel cigars which my friend was telling me about last night. I just need a bite of that chocolate bar which has one left at the ref. Good thing my dear little boy did not see it when he went searching for a chocolate at the refrigerator awhile ago. 

I would like to have another cup of that hot chocolate from McDonald's as well but I might just have to settle for a hot cup of Milo here at home since that is the only one I could find in the house now. I have to make a grocery list tomorrow. 

Now my break is over and I have to go back and work.



Wanted

Wanted: a graphic designer.

Now my friend is looking for someone to hire in their company which she told me last week that they are looking for someone who has a background on graphic designing. I know some people who are graphic designers by profession but they already have work.

I wonder if she could find someone they need at http://www.zooprinting.com where you can find graphic designers, print brokers, print shops, and ad agencies. They could also help you with your printing needs. Yes the last month of the year in the printing industry can get really busy. If know anyone who is a graphic designer, let me know and I may recommend them to my friend.
