Blog Hop: Show Off Your Art 9/14/2009

This week's Blog Hop theme is "SHOW OFF YOUR ART". This theme was suggested by a blog hop fan this week. Many of you are artists, wanna be artists or have kids who love art. This blog hop is your chance to show off your art. Don't be bashful or shy, you don't have to be a professional, it's not a contest. Drawing, painting, scrapbooking, crafts or just one of your kid's masterpieces... let's all enjoy it! NOTE: if you don't have a scanner, just take a photo and put it online.

I would like to share some of my son's drawings using the Paint software. My son drew these when he was 7 years old as a practice assignment for their Computer class. I was surprised that he can "paint".

My son's drawings may not be perfect but for me they are wonderful works of art. I support my son 100% in his efforts at drawing. God would want us to nurture our children's talents. Who knows, some day his art talents would be used by God for a special purpose.
Show me a person who doesn't know his talents or hasn't developed them for service to others, and I will show you a person who has little sense of purpose, meaning, motivation and value. Tom Paterson

I came from the blog hop - thanks for visiting my blog. :)

What a creative approach to the theme. Your son did an impressive job using the Paint program. I find that to be a challenging program to mention -- let alone the fact that they were created by a 7 year old! He did well!

You asked me how I did my scrapbook pages -- and you're right, they're 100% digital. I fell in love with digital scrapping shortly after my daughter was born. I simply didn't have time, energy, money, or house space (let alone desire) to do tradition scrapping. So I bought Photoshop (most of my scrapping friends use Photoshop Elements 7.0) and went at it! My art travels where I do, because it's all on my laptop -- so it's easy to take out and put away.
Very nice! I am no longer it's been a while actually. LOL! I'll be honest: I can't draw like that. Nice work!
Happy blog hopping! Stop by at my place ;)

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice. Image taken from When we came back to the Philipines , I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
