Welcome to

Our workers consist of 2 full-time craft cutters and assemblers, 1 part-time cutter/assembler, 1 freelance layout artist, and 1 full-time designer. We can only have a handful of selected clients in a month to ensure that orders are well-taken care of.

After 3 and a half years of basically working in the living room of my home,
I've finally decided to put up a studio in a new building downtown.
Though I love the thought of working at home while my kids play with all the paper cuttings,
my home cannot accommodate additional staff and more equipment.

This is my studio...

A Short History...

I believe that details are everything and its fun to create something different. 

Invitation making started in 2010 as a hobby at home with only the basic craft tools: paper, trimmer, scissors, and basic printer. I started making invitations for my brother and then for friends who believed in my craft. It was really simple back then. I photographed my samples and posted them online. 

When I started picking up clients from different places in the Philippines, I knew that there's something special about this hobby. For two years, I worked on our small dining table, invested on better crafting tools, and read more about the latest trends in invitation making, and the business side of it. 

On the side, I practiced card-making and brought back my scrapbooking skills to life. My sister influenced me to blog, hence this blog was born.

Back in my mind, I have that dream of having my own craft room with a huge table and a well-organized space. I wanted a lovely chandelier! The good news came in the last quarter of 2013, when my husband (a photographer) announced that a new building will rise to house their studio, and a part of that space will be for my business. Building that dream was so exciting. And then finally, on June 2014, I opened the lights to my studio. 

I am a Doctor of Medicine by profession (passed the Physician's Licensure Exam Board in August 2004). I've worked in several private and public hospitals in the past and currently, I have a day job as a Public Health Physician. I'm a mom of 2 doting kids and a wife to an amazingly supportive husband. 

Thank you for visiting my blog and taking time to know more about me.
