At the beginning of this year, I made a mental list of some crochet-related things I want to do. And, 2018 has been good that I was able to tick off 90% of them.
JOIN / SELL AT A BAZAAR
I joined the bazaar during my kids’ school family day bazaar. I was only able to sell 4 items. It was probably not that good, but I was happy to be able to endure it. You can read my bazaar experience here, “BAZAAR: #OOTD >>.”
I also made a collection with crochet friends, the UNDYED TABLESCAPE Collection >>. And, I haven’t sold any thing from the collection yet! @.@ But, I’m proud of what we made.
The photo shoot we did the collection was the best part. =)
I’m not really a good teacher / tutor but I put it in my 2018 bucket list. I just feel like sharing crochet to others, and that hopefully it will chance upon on a few persons who would turn to really love it.
And, the universe connived when Sarah Palmares aka @tomatofire_crochets messaged about an upcoming workshops she’d be doing with Casa Gorordo. Then, Bernadette Dy / @5chubbyfingers also messaged to volunteer for the workshop. And, yay! We probably had done 4-5 crochet workshops. (You can read about my crochet workshops in Cebu experience here >>.)
This was just a wild far-off wish, but it happened. And, we did it more than once. It’s surreal!
For my yarn bombing experiences here in Cebu, you can check my previous blogposts:

“Bringing Your Grandmother’s Art to Cebu Design Week >>”
BONUS: CROCHET WORK at an ART GALLERY
One time, Sarah, Dess, and I were talking about where is our dream place for crochet installation. Dess mentioned about Ayala mall, Sarah talked about doing the Pari-an monument (if I remember it right), and I mentioned something about displaying it in a museum.
And, then Voila! Well, it’s not really a museum but it’s an art gallery, QUBE Gallery in CrossRoads, Banilad, Cebu; hey, it makes me want to do a cartwheel! Please do check it out; and, also we’ll be doing more crochet installation there. =)
There were a lot of people who were involved in this project so I’ll be creating a separate blog post for this. =)
CROCHET FOR A CAUSE or something like that. This is one in my bucket list that is yet to be realized. Honestly, I’m not such into this thing. I mean that I don’t really want to “label” it as such. Like if I wanted to do it, I just want to do it without labels or did I make sense? So there, universe, please help me understand this. =)
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who helped me tick off items in my bucket list! =) Seize 2018!
