Since May this year, I have really been crazy about looming. My 2-month journey with that have been really fun. I have graduated from using the non-branded loom to using Rainbow Loom, from using the non-branded bands to using the branded bands. One thing though I have to thank Loom Bands for, it made ties with my friends stronger. Every day on Viber will be a fun one, showing what you made, joking around about how what you made looks, what designs are new and upcoming. It just made each day fun and exciting (amidst all the work that we have to do).
A friend of mine actually posted on Facebook that when she was young, she would create bracelets out of rubber bands and paper clips. And if she was a good girl, her dad would buy her another box. You remember how those rubber bands looked like? They were the big ones that could actually hold rolled bond paper. TEEHEE. But now, NO! Rubber bands are cooler – more colorful and more expensive I might add. Yes, “sossy” is the term.
Since I’m in the business of “crafting” (daw), I would consider this a craft. Yes, I do. Manila Workshops (Memory Crafters Workshop Series), together with Mothercare Philippines and @iamloomprincess, are inviting everyone, beginners and advanced loomers to come and party with us. It will be a fun afternoon of learning and sharing. Learn new loom bracelet designs and share your knowledge with your peers as well! In this workshop, you will learn how to make around 3-5 loom bracelet designs.
