My name is Neenuh. I’m a multi-crafter. I love getting my hands into various crafty pursuits, and every now and then, I like to blog about the things I make. Perhaps you’d like to stick around?
I started blogging back in 2004, as a way of expressing my random musings. It was pretty much an online diary filled with mundane things. Ahh, good times. After a couple (Okay, I am lying here, I meant a nonillion) of name changes and web designs, I finally moved everything to my very own web domain, and I have had this space to myself since 2009.
I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. Not too long ago, my family and I moved to California, USA. I am a Special Education Teacher, and I teach students with Autism Spectrum Disorders in a middle school. If I am not busy finalizing Individualized Education Programs, holding meetings or preparing lesson plans, I am most likely making something.
I loved my childhood. My childhood involved catching bugs, climbing trees, making up games and toys with my friends, playing hide-and-seek under the moonlit sky, riding the bicycle around the the neighborhood, and lots of swimming. I was an island girl in my past life. Most of the time I am child-like — alive, blunt, carefree, gullible, and trusting. I like to learn things the hard and painful way. Such precociousness, you might say.
I like engaging myself in challenging activities. My tolerance for frustration is high, but my threshold for pain is low. I am a lot more conservative than I’d like to admit. I think life is beautiful, and the world is such an amazing place. I eat meat because it tastes so frickin’ good, especially when grilled.
I really like old school, and I am madly in love with things that are hand-made, vintage or vintage-inspired. I find humor in tragedy. I can pick up things with my toes, and sneeze for more than ten times non-stop. I am interesting, I know. I find a lot of things dumb, and most of the time, I end up doing a lot of those things I consider dumb. Oh, did I mention I am smart too? Smarter than the average bear, in fact. At times I can’t stand my own idiosyncrasies. Imagine, I have been living with myself for over 30 years now. It’s a tough life.
Here are some of the things I like: alphabetizing, baking, beach, beaded jewelry, blog-lurking, books, butterflies, celestial bodies, chocolate cake, coffee, cooking, cuddling, dancing, dresses, gerberas, hammocks, ice cream, Internet, kitties, knitting, ladybugs, making lists, mangoes, mid-century modern finds, nail polish, Nintendo DS, photography, playing my guitar, rainy days, road trips, scrapbooking, See’s Candies, shoes, stand-up comedy, strawberries, sunsets, Super Mario, tulips, Twix, ventriloquism, yarns, and Zelda.
