About Me

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!), PEggyMELdy,
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!

  6. Thank you for sharing your joyful work. I am teaching a class on collage at the local community collage and found this when looking for more examples.
    I especially like how you mix text with the images so well.
    My own blog will begin when a friend teaches me the WordPress ins and outs.

  8. Hi Patsy,

    You have been to my blog and commented a few times but I am embarrased to say that this was my first time to visit your blog....but I'm glad that I finally did. Love your story, your blog and your artworks...just beautiful. And you being from the Philippines is an added bonus. Hopefully the next time I come home for a visit, I will get a chance to meet you in person. Thanks and blessings to you!

  12. Hi Patsy,

    How interesting to know about the source of Papemelrotti's name. I always thought that the name is a foreign term for something that has to do with paper. I love your store which I frequent at SM Clark. I love those sturdy boxes which I embellish and personalize to fit my recipient's personality. I was looking at the PCA's blog list hoping to find card makers' blogs and found your name which I instantly recognized having communicated with you re the Silhouette Cameo. I was fascinated by your closeness with your sister Peggy and your story.

    I teach the Silhouette Studio software so if you need any king of mentoring, just let me know.

    Cheers,
    Gayle]

  16. Oh, your blog is so refreshing! Love your pictures! I think we have interests in common. My blog is in a beginning stage and mainly used for a garage sale I am having at this time but with some art displayed. Soon I hope to add more. Hope you will visit.

  18. This is the first time I noticed the About Me tab. It is so interesting to learn about the house that your sister designed and to see where you live. I loved hearing how the family business got its name and how you all are so involved in family life.

  21. Hello Patsy, so you are the Pa... like my friends, Ro and Ti, you are wonderfully made. You have the colors of the rainbow arched in your hearts. They say that God does not play favorites, well now, I think He does. ;) I see how much you delight in Him. Your Heartworks is paying you off with so much joy. It shows and it's contagious! Thank you so much for sharing your heart. "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me." Enjoy your date. ;) Lydia

  27. I recently retired from working fulltime, so now I am back in blogland, visiting all of my old favorites. Yours has always been a favorite of mine. I won one of your lovely ATCs quite a few years ago in a giveaway of yours. Blessings to you!
