Come on in and Feel at Home!

I couldn't resist!
Just had to join the party even though 
I'm really late! 

My name is Patsy, 
and I live in the Philippines.
I am married to a wonderful man, Luigi,
who is an IT Consultant.
We had a joyous double wedding with my sister.
That's us on the right.
A year after, both of us had little boys!
My son is on the left.
He's 16 years old now.

This is our house.

I live next door to my sister Peggy.
We live on the right,
and her family lives on the left side.
Peggy designed our house,
and what's really great about it is
if we have a party, we can open up
the dividing wall,
and have a bigger space to entertain! 
Come on in and feel at home!
I'm not going to show you my living room,
because after two years since I moved
to our new house,
I still haven't put anything on my walls!
That canvas on the easel is still not finished!
I have some more artwork here.

I have been blessed with a GRReat family.
I live near my parents
and my siblings and their family.
And we see each other almost
every day, because we work together!

I have been working since 
I was 11 years old
in our family business,

Papemelroti stands for 
PAtsy (that's me!), PEggy, MELdy,
RObert and TIna, my siblings.
It started as a joke,
but now has grown miraculously!

I started this blog as a way to share my 
art, canvases, scrapbook pages, 
ATCs, and now my journal pages.
This is a collage I did in my journal 
to help me remember Ephesians 2:19-22.
We are part of the body of Christ,
members of God's household.
Are we doing our part to build and encourage,
to serve and love others?
We are all brothers and sisters,
journeying together to our heavenly home!
What an exciting prospect! 

Linking with
and 
sneak peek

Thanks for the visit!
Patsy

  7. Welcome to Paint Party Friday! Great to have you join us and introduce yourself.

    Your journal pages looks lovely! Looking forward to seeing how that unfinished canvas in your living room comes along.

    P.S. There was a typo in your link and it went nowhere. I figured it out and re-linked you so PPFers can visit.

  29. This is so inspiring! I'm more into arts than my wife...but she knows how to appreciate the things that I do...I'm blessed to find out how God uses your talent to touch others lives...Just looking at your artwork, I could sense how deep is your passion for this! Great! God bless all the works of your hands!
