Dec 30, 2008


Before the year ends, most of the people collect the 13 fruits and put them on the dining table during new year's eve. It is the Chinese tradition that some races including Filipinos follow until now. In a different way, before I welcome 2009, I created featured art headers for the 13 bloggers. It's my simple way of saying "thank you" to my fellow bloggers turned friends and it's the way I appreciate them. Doing and express what I feel through art is the thing I loved doing in 2008. I filed them on a clear book. This is a remembrance of my blogging experience that every time I glance at it, I would remember the good times. So this is my entry for this week's challenge in MMM.

This is actually one of the pages of the scrapbook album I gave to Recel for his smart and cute daughter Triz.

I created this header paper art for ZJ, an Ilongga who is recently living in Cambodia with her husband.

Roselle is happily living with her family in Chicago. I loved doing this matting art paper.

Mojo Potato or JMA is a fellow Ilonggo writer and photographer. I put paper curtain on this feature art.

Luckily, I met Dong Ho. He is an engineer, traveler and photographer. The nature views were taken in my region.

Another fellow Ilonggo who is living together with his own family and working in Cambodia for arts and fashion

Lawstude is a perfect guy with a perfect hands. All his shots are perect.

Bry is a pogi blogger who is frank and nice.

Mel is a sweet blogger and helpful friend

Mrs. T is the nicest, thoughtful and heLpful of them all. I sewed flowers on paper header for her.

Blue Rose is so kind. I paint blue roses header for her. It's her daughter's photo.

I admired this guy online. I can't imagine how and where he got all the words he is writing on his blog. He is so expressive in writing.

What I love about this guy is the way he deliver his lines. I love his punchlines. I love reading is post. It's my daily reading routine.

Actually, there are lots of cool bloggers I met online. It would be a longest post but I will continue featuring them next year. Thank you for the inspiration and the kindness! See you next year then. HAVE A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2009 TO ALL!
