I am sooooo excited that i wasnt able to get some sleep. because i still have work til 3 am that morning and the workshop starts at 10 am! and im from marikina city so thats kinda screwed up right? so anyway since i loooove crafting so much i just rested changed and went to the event which is around 2 hrs travel from our place. i arrived a tad early and ended up waiting for 30 minutes for the mall to open. YES IM A DEDICATED CRAFTER and this is the kind of event i will trade my sleep for! good job to DMC Philippines for creating this event for hard core crafters like me <3 I also want to share to you guys the work shop i was lucky enough to be listed on DREAM CATCHER MAKING! YAY!

i used to do this when i was in high school and i know i can still make stuff like this 

Ganchilyo Guru

and anything that involves crochet tickles my fancy!
was able to get a pom pom making kit for cheap so i might make a tutorial about it

miss karla of damgo was the one who taught us how to make dream catchers 
its was a wonderful experience to listen to her story and 
her teaching us to make our own dream catchers as well!

Marie kit Ph

crafting supplies overload!

so i bought a lot of stuff mostly threads

sleepless for 24 hours and going strong for the name of crafting! 

The event was truly a success and i cant stress enough how happy i am to be able to attend it. i am a self confessed hard core crafter and proud about it! Having an eye and appreciation for handmade things is truly a wonderful thing. crafting is an art and it runs in my veins and im willing to sacrifice so much stuff to be able to continue my passion. i spent a few thousand on the event itself and im cool with it :) i love my money where i can see them. in my crafting stash <3 I learned a lot and will definitely make more dream catchers in the future as well! congratulatons to DMC Philippines for making this wonderful event happen!
