Dear Friend,

Where do you find inspiration?  Do you see the minute sparkle in the early morning dew, hear the birds sweetly chirping or delight in a child's chuckle?  Did you look up at the sky today and see the brilliant blue vastness illuminated by the sun and surrounded by billowy clouds?

Inspiration is something that is abundant in every day.  We just have to open our eyes and be aware of it when it strikes us.

For those who create, inspiration is a must!  When was the last time you created something with your own hands and gave it to someone you cared about? 

This month gives us the time and chance with all the summer holidays and the special event of Mother's Day.  Let's be inspired and create!

Summer Inspiration

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart. 
~Celia Thaxter

I question not if thrushes sing,
If roses load the air;
Beyond my heart I need not reach
When all is summer there.
~John Vance Cheney

A life without love is like a year without summer. 
~Swedish Proverb

Oh, the summer night
Has a smile of light
And she sits on a sapphire throne.
~Barry Cornwall

Recycling Feature: Fused Plastic

May 10, 2010 will be a very important day for all of us Filipinos as we will get to choose our new public officials!

Wonder what will happen to all the political banners and ads that are filling our towns and cities?  Unless we do something about it, these will end up in our dumpsites (in a major way!) so why not recycle it?Click here for a fused plastic project by Papemelroti designer Patsy.


Elections Call Center Assistance

Need to know more about your candidate?  Try this election service extended to all Filipinos nationwide for free!  It's called Gabay Halalan.
It is an election CALL CENTER that educates people and gives information via telephone. Your employees and their families can ask anything about the elections and they will use their database to answer it or research further if it's not in their data and you can call back for the answer.
You can ask about:
* Your precinct number and location
* The new automated election system process
* National candidates' platforms and profiles and stand on issues
* Local candidates running in your specific area (down to the councilor)
* a copy of the official ballot (for your practice)

* Report incidents and they will act on them
* other assistance needed

This is all FREE (no long distance charges and other costs).


1) If you're using a PLDT line (landline or landline plus or payphone) = just dial 10149 and they will receive the call
2) If using Globe, TM, Globelines = just dial 02-9020400

Let's decide to make a difference in our country now because WE CAN!

Reseller's Corner:

Color Combinations
Displaying items is key to creating a look your customers will love!  They'll know what's new, what's in season and what you would like to highlight as some of your best products in stock!

Colors greatly influence the mood of your shop, and even the mood of the people inside!  Yellow lifts and cheers.  Brown is predictably natural and down to earth.  Red gives energy, boldness and drama.  Pink means sweetness, romance, femininity.  Blue is stability, reliability and peace.  What's your shop saying?
