You are the ink to my nib, the glue to my glue gun, the ephemera to my acrylic emulsion…this love month we’re posting a gallery of craft-supportive significant others! Let’s show some love for the folks who cheer us on as we do…what we love doing. Kat of Midnight City Curiosities sent us a lot of love for her boyfriend Mike! Perfect for today’s occasion.
Shortly after beginning the posts on Craft-Supportive Significant Others, we got this email from awesome crafter Kat Limbaga (she and her boyfriend Mike previously took a screenprinting class here at the workshop):
My boyfriend is supportive of mine as well!
He was excited when we did this – http://katlimbaga.blogspot.com/2012/09/seeing-and-making-patterns.html?m=0
He was the one pushing me to continue practicing my craft/hobby; be it polymer clay, photography, crafting with paper. He is always the first one to see my finished work because I love to see the pride in his eyes when he sees I have accomplished something. So everything from my currently-on-hiatus online shop were scrutinized by the boyfriend, as in he was my personal Quality Control specialist lol! (http://midnightcity.multiply.com/)
It makes him happy that what I do makes me happy!
There was this one time that he surprised me with a vintage typewriter…that he bought from Cubao X! He lugged the thing from Cubao to Laguna, on a bus just to surprise me. Thinking about it now makes me teary eyed a bit (heh, sappy! Damn hormones…)
Anyway, that’s our love story. Lol.
Xoxo, kat (and mike)
What do you like the most about the support you get?
It’s nice to feel appreciated! He had always been my biggest fan. All the things that I create, I make sure that he sees it first. He’s my personal Quality Control checker. hahaha! he’s very honest when i give him my finished work so when his face lights up, i KNOW i did something that would make him proud.
Do you do any activities together?
Yes we do! The last crafty activity that we did together was the screenprinting workshop with Hocus! (he was actually excited because he really wanted to learn silk screen printing on fabric haha! adorbs.)
