heeyup. you guessed it. this is shane's 18th birthday gift.

1. planning. jot down your plans in a paper. notes in your cellphone is a great idea too! to make it more special and specific, i gave one present for each letter of shane's name.  give him/her gifts with a special meaning.

2. look for a kit. i spray-painted mine all-black. i just thought black would look more professional and real but you may, of course, use any color that you prefer.

3. gather up materials. i bought some new scraps from the bookstore and for the other scraps, well.. i just got from anywhere around the house. promote recycling, guys!

4. start with your presents. A is for album. i decided to make our very own scrapbook-album.

design, design, design.

i told her in characters the meaning of my presents to make her less confused.


s- skirt from topshop (your fave store)

h- hershey's cookies&cream (your fave chocolate)

a- album (your fave guuurl)

n- cloud "n"ine chocolates (hahaha fave choco as well)

e- car"eeeee"t (*we had a memory about carrots*)


just be creative and come up with something. your hardwork will pay off in the end. i know because mine did. shane loved the kit and that is what matters most. not the sleepless nights and time consumed, but the thoughts that you actually put into it.

the final look of shame and paulame's journey.
