Today, is A Picture Speaks A Thousand Words day.   These are images of painted paper beads drying in my sisters back yard, to me, it’s such a beautiful sight!


I love the sunny yellows


The color of purple yams, a beloved Filipino dessert.

    • Hello!

      I’m sorry, are you asking me what kind of paint we used? Acrylic paints were used, you can also use nail polish and glitters if you prefer. Thank you for stopping by.
