Father’s Day at Savoy Hotel Manila

The Googly Gooeys is a little over ten years now. It started as a webcomic about a girlfriend and boyfriend with their silliest real-life nicknames: Tispy & Ponggo. Those were the days when the hubby was the muse of the humor blog. ? His toothy grin IRL was the...

DIY Felt and Foam Projects with Craft Easy

What's your favorite DIY and crafting material? We've been very much into felt and foam recently so we thought we'd whip up a few more projects not just for the kids but also for the kids at heart! A few months ago, we made felt and foam toys (burgers and pizzas) and...

DIY Tumbler + Paint Your Pocket Organizer

Expectations: Mom can do her DIY projects alone, help out in the family business, have enough quality time with Riley, be a thoughtful daughter, friend and fulfill her life goals too! ? Reality: First off, there's the hubby who helps out with pricing, negotiations,...

Lesson 10542

This was the post on our Instagram last night. I woke up and read it this morning as a message to myself instead of my message to others. I chuckled. I know I still had so much to tackle. Sure, I'm not afraid to mix all the colors on my watercolor set but I'm at a...

Instagram Story Templates: About Me

We've been wanting to play around with more downloadables at the Googly HQ but our projects snowballed during the last quarter of 2018 so this project got parked for a while. But that's done and we're finally releasing the first batch of our Instagram Story...

DIY Pompom and Tassel Keychains

Here at the Googly Gooeys HQ, we love a great excuse to craft and experiment with materials. This time, we’ve been eyeing pompoms and tassels so we decided to make them from scratch using these colorful Art Attack yarns! If you’re curious as to how we made them,...

Arts and Crafts Workshops at Smart Kids Asia

Sometimes, when I'm doing workshops, I hear this voice in my head, "Why are you doing this? You, of all people, an introvert? Why are you talking to people?" Then, I realized, the only reason why I am able to muster the courage to talk to an audience is that I just...

Crafting Date with Craft Easy

Are crafting dates a thing? We'd always joke around the Googly HQ about how when we grow old, we'd be one of those tita groups in cafes and restaurants bringing a bunch of arts and craft supplies. ? So when Craft Easy asked us if we would want to host one with some...

Christmas Giveaway by Fisher-Price

Cool breeze, familiar carols and festive lights all mean one thing: it's Christmas?! The holidays have always been festive in our country (and really long too which we're not complaining about to be honest). But with a toddler who loves to play (and sing and dance...

Colorful Outfits for Kids at Mothercare

My baby is now a little boy. I can’t believe I’m typing this but it’s the truth. While I do sometimes miss the teeny tiny Riley, his two year old (almost three) self has got quite the amount of surprises too. For starters, I always thought that shopping would only...

How to Turn Your Designs Into Paper Cuts and Crafts

How to Turn Your Designs Into Paper Cuts and Crafts

I'm trying to recall when my curiosity for cutting ever started. I remember when I was 5, and I was using a super blunt pair of scissors to cut my bangs. My mother was really upset to find out what I did. Hahahahahaha. I still think it's funny to this day. I tried...
