Reviving Crafty Pinoy

It’s been a long time since I last posted here in Crafty Pinoy. Four years! I guess I just never really knew what to do about this. Or, the fact that I was never really solved with the idea of blogging about crafty materials and other people’s crafts. I grew up with artists for parents who made sure my sister and spent all our summers at home learning an art or something crafty — it’s not like I’ve never done any arts and crafts.

I guess it was more of the fact that I never really found the time for doing something crafty. My work as a web designer keeps me really busy — sometimes I get so drained from my job that I just want to spend the weekend resting. But the thing is, having a job that requires creativity sometimes put me at the point of losing inspiration. And whenever that happens, doing arts and crafts never failed to get that creativity back. So there. I no longer have an excuse to do arts and crafts during my free time. ๐Ÿ˜€ Besides, I miss spending “arts and crafts time” with my younger sister Joyce — I think finding time for crafty stuff will not only help me relax, but have some quality time with my one and only sibling.

I honestly don’t think I’d be able to blog really often here, but it’s definitely not going to be once every four years ๐Ÿ˜› Hopefully I’d be able to share with you my weekend crafts as often as I could. Stay tuned, and allow me to welcome you back to Crafty Pinoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Who’s crafty?

I am. You are. Why? Because you’re reading this blog, which is basically all about arts and crafts. Crafty Pinoy is different from the usual arts and crafts blog you’ll see all over the Internetโ€”it’s about arts and crafts, but specifically focuses on arts and crafts here in the Philippines.

By the way, I’m Gail Dela Cruz – Villanueva, your resident Crafty Pinoy author. You’ll be seeing a lot of me here blabbing about all things artsy (Pinoy artsy, that is). My parents (who are both Fine Arts graduates) made the summers of my childhood years artistically memorable. Every summer we had a mini arts and crafts course (so wouldn’t get bored and harness our artsy skills at the same time), and I can say that I’ve learned a lot. Now, I want to share what I’ve learned.

Go on. Bookmark this blog and let’s start having fun! ๐Ÿ™‚
