Chocovado





Just in from Bulacan... Chocovado cacao tablets! Its components are mainly cocoa powder and muscovado sugar, so, you are assured of its less processing, therefore, more organic. It has a smoother feel compared to the ones available in the market today which uses coarse brown sugar. It is wrapped with dried, cooked banana leaves that adds to its sweet bittery aroma & flavour. One tablet equals a cup of choco drink, but may be eaten as is. My grandma used to eat cacao tablets with cooked rice. It's yummy! Only P50/pc. For delivery, please order minimum of 5 pieces and add P50 for metro delivery --- total of P300. For provincial orders, P350. Overseas, its $15 for 5 pcs inclusive of shipping and handling.

Butterfly Flutters











These flutters were created with tender, loving care (aw!!)! If I will tell you its history, it is quite long. I'd make it short. It is made of several layers of recycled papers... glossies, bond, etc. Each wing (and I mean one pair against the other) is unique you'll never find two alike, promise! Each has an interesting hue, colors, design... You can stick 'em into any thing (surface - paper, plastic, concrete, metal, except liquids, no, just liquid containers!) at all because it has an inch strip of adhesive. And the adhesive won't come off easily because the base paper is of light board(recycled, of course). What you can do with them:
  • buy from me (because so far, all over the world and the net, it is only I who makes 'em)!!! (50 pcs is just P200 bucks-includes Metro & provincial post/ $9 overseas-includes international shipping).
  • add color to any corner
  • placecard marker
  • party place enhancers
  • embellish a scrapbook
  • embellish a greeting card
  • embellish a letter envelope (or stationery)
  • embellish a gift box / bag
  • stick on your face when feeling low, or happy
  • brighten your baby's or child's room, crib, furniture
  • stick on plant stem or branch (even if it's plastic-ouch!)

  • stick on your regular empty wine bottle, or flower vase

Embellish with pressed flowers

Here's a link to how to embellish gift box with pressed flowers. Pressing flowers is a very difficult task, however, for the time-constrained. But there are affordable and very interesting pressed flowers available online. Check this link of Ms. Kate Chu. Here's a triptych, which of course may overwhelm any ordinary mortal like you and me. But there are artists and there will always be marketers and buyers. Ms. Chu calls it the Koi Pond.
