This is a follow up on our Art and Family Day.
Paper
tole, also known as three-dimensional decoupage, is the art of handcrafting three-dimensional pictures from flat prints. Paper tole art is created by skillfully cutting, shaping, and assembling pieces of paper layered onto an image until a three-dimensional version of the image emerges. Though there are a number of ways to use paper tole, one of the most popular is to frame the image in a deep wall frame and display it as wall art.

 
 
 

Our meeting was moved to May 3 at 3pm.
We're supposed to talk about our coming "Family Day" combined with
"ART Day."
So i'm browsing  what is the most easiest craft, less tools and nice to the eyes.
Well i'm into stitching so em lookin for something simple to begin with.
And I saw this flowers made of felt.

You can put it in a pin, make a brooch, put it in the headband, as an accessory in the bag. Put it in a flower pot.
So nice to look at, and you can sell and make a profit out of it.

This is just a sample. I'm still looking and browsing for a perfect craft to share and enjoy making it with our families.

I remember mam nelia talking about paper tole last I visited her office and we have a volunteer to teach us how to make one. I'm going to look on it tomorrow. Hehheh!! I'm sleepy and it's 12:20am already.

 

A store owner was tacking a sign above his door that read "Puppies For Sale." Signs like that have a way of attracting small children, and sure enough, a little boy appeared under the store owner's sign. "How much are you going to sell the puppies for?" he asked.

The store owner replied, "Anywhere from $30 to $50."

The little boy reached in his pocket and pulled out some change. "I have $2.37," he said. "Can I please look at them?"

The store owner smiled and whistled and out of the kennel came Lady, who ran down the aisle of his store followed by five teeny, tiny balls of fur.

One puppy was lagging considerably behind. Immediately the little boy singled out the lagging, limping puppy and said, "What's wrong with that little dog?"

The store owner explained that the veterinarian had examined the little puppy and had discovered it didn't have a hip socket. It would always limp. It would always be lame.

The little boy became excited. "That is the puppy that I want to buy."

The store owner said, "No, you don't want to buy that little dog. If you really want him, I'll just give him to you."

The little boy got quite upset. He looked straight into the store owner's eyes, pointing his finger, and said, "I don't want you to give him to me. That little dog is worth every bit as much as all the other dogs and I'll pay full price. In fact, I'll give you $2.37 now, and 50 cents a month until I have him paid for."

The store owner countered, "You really don't want to buy this little dog. He is never going to be able to run and jump and play with you like the other puppies."

To his surprise, the little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace. He looked up at the store owner and softly replied, "Well, I don't run so well myself, and the little puppy will need someone who understands!"

 

"Ideals are like stars;
you will not succeed in touching them
with your hands,
but like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides,
and following them,
you reach your destiny."

 
 

By Unknown

Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Do not set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.

Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.

Do not let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past nor for the future.
By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

Do not give up when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

It is a fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

Do not shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love;

The fastest way to lose love is too hold it too tightly
In addition, the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

Do not dismiss your dreams.

To be without dreams is to be without hope;
To be without hope is to be without purpose.

Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been,
But also where you are going.

Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way. 

 

13 Ways To Nearly Guarantee You'll Die Prematurely!

1.
Ignore genetics, especially if your parents died young.

2.
Don’t exercise, avoid aerobics the most.

3.
Be careless and absentminded. Don’t wear seat belts. Daydream when using dangerous tools and knives.

4.
Smoke two packs a day.

5.
Be a loner, avoid family or other strong social support groups.

6. Drink alcohol excessively.

7. Be angry, hostile and aggressive at and about everything. Blame others. Take no responsibility for your situation.

8.
Ignore nature’s warning signs like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness,numbness.

9.
Be a pessimist. Convince yourself that nothing will go right for you. Look forward to being taken advantage of, again.

10.
Multi task and have a strong sense of constant time urgency. This will help cultivate being angry when someone gets in your way or slows you down.

11.
Over eat, especially high fat, high sugar junk food. Work to become “morbidly obese.”

12.
Worry constantly, even in the face of contrary evidence.

13. Believe in no power higher than yourself. Faith in God is a part of longevity in many studies.

Of Course....if you didn’t want to die prematurely for some reason, like so you can spend your retirement & not leave it to your kids, you could change. Do the opposite & nearly guarantee you’ll live longer!

    Semptember is
    Childhood Cancer Awareness Month


    It is an opportunity to

    Honor the courage of kids/teens with cancer and their families
       

    Offer much-needed recognition and support to kids with cancer and their families It is a reminder for everyone...

    Children can have cancer. Metro Manila cancer registry records in three hospitals, show that eight kids/one very 3 hours, die everyday.
    Many more cases and deaths remain unreported

      
     
    Childhood cancer strikes randomly, unexpectedly, regularly, sparing no age group, socioeconomic status, ethnic group or geographic region. Children as young as a few months, barely able to talk and walk, can already have cancer
       

    Children can survive cancer, with early diagnosis and prompt, adequate treatment. In developed countries, childhood cancer survival rate is as high as 95%.
    In the Philippines, sadly,
    it is only 10to 30%.
    Of ten who are diagnosed, only two/three will most
     likely survive. They die because they are poor,
     unable to afford the high costs of medication and treatment


     It is a call to action:
    Work Together
    to help neighbors, classmates, and colleagues whose lives may be burdened by childhood cancer


    Working together we can help them FACE and BEAT Cancer. We can give them the greatest gift of all ---
    a chance to live fully --
    to have a future


    So please,
    GET INVOLVED.
    KIDS SHOULD NOT FIGHT CANCER ALONE.

    There are so many ways you can help.


    Post this message in your bulletin boards,
    in your churches, at school,
    at work, in your barangay halls/ community centers,
    in your blogs or home pages
       
    Pledge any amount to
    help buy medicines for kids with cancer. As little as
    P 250.00 will go a long
    way to save a life
       

    Let your church leaders, media friends and elected officials know. One child/teen die every three hours because they are too poor to afford the high cost of cancer treatment.

    Ask them to
    DO SOMETHING TO
    STOP THE DYING
     
      

    Sponsor a child for a minimum of P5,000 a month. You can do this with your family, group of friends or co-workers    

    Sponsor an event /
    Make CWFI your beneficiary
    in special events in your church, school or neighborhood
       

    Write an article,
    a story or a letter to the editor on the situation of
    kids with cancer –
    the forgotten, neglected children of our society
       

    Buy and/or sell
    CWFI love gifts
    (gold ribbon magnets,
    key chains, pins,
    eco friendly bags, t-shirts)
      

     
    Endorse CWFI to a
    possible sponsor.
     100% of funds raised go to treatment of poor kids
     with cancer
       

    Take time.
    Be a volunteer.
    Be a Cancer Warrior
       

    Help raise funds
    from others throw aways:
    old newspapers, used paper, toys, books etc.

       

    Request for your very own coin banks of hope
    (Alkansya nang Pag-Asa)
       

    Celebrate your special moments
    (birthdays, anniversaries, yearly employee events, school fairs)
    with kids with cancer.

    Moments of fun help bring some joy and relaxation in their pain wracked lives
