When Children Learn to Climb and Find Everything, Everywhere

This happens when you want to make sure you buy everything on the list. You solve your puzzle in the grocery.

This happens when you carefully write your journal entries in cursive with waterproof ink. You get a curious puzzle and realize the corrections you have to make on your entries.

This happens when you buy an expensive japanese liquid eyeliner;
 it becomes the best ink on the wall.


One Sweet Morning

Me: Mga anak, idlip lang ako. Sobrang antok na antok pa ko :(

Suddenly my son began pulling my hair and my daughter started tickling my feet. It was a really sweet nap :)


Handmade Dollmaking


I hope you can still remember my first handmade doll Laura. I made her in February 2014. I've been contemplating on selling handmade dolls since 2012, but my mom duties as a new mom had to be prioritized. And now with my 2nd child, I find myself handling everything easier. Even with the two of them. I do my housework and take care of my children by myself, so the only time I spend on doll making is when the baby is on his 2 naps. My daughter watches me when sewing and I sometimes find her pretending to sew on my sewing machine (don't worry it's a treadle)

It was my goal to open my online shop when my 2nd child turns 6 months old. And I hit it! The doll doesn't look appealing to moms who are advocates of Waldorf education though. I am often asked if I can make some alterations to the doll's face to accomodate their preference. I'm very new to the handmade industry in the Philippines and I don't have a big network, so I'm super newbie. Good luck to me. Find littlemeridolls on instagram and facebook ;))
