Hello from Manila! It's been a while! Big life change for me, one that does not include blogging and crafting on my spare time. Oops! I forgot: my new life does not have time to spare either. But there's 2011, and I resolve to get back into this thing that I loved doing. The piece above is my first one from Manila. I will blog more about Manila... and I don't even know where to begin. Inspiration sits in every turn! We do this thing here called Misa de Gallo, which is really a novena. 9 days before Christmas, folks get up early to hear a full mass at 4:30 am, just when the roosters crow in the morning. It ends at 6-ish, so between that and work time, I am painting. This was today's piece. So, peace and blessings to everyone!
