There’s always a significant special bond in between sisters that no one see the pile of its connection. Sisters have various powers to feel and to anticipate future determination of ones faith.

Travelling alone makes you feel tenaciously capable and responsible of yourself alone. On the other side some veins in your heart whispering that you are in the stage of being vulnerable, intermittent, and fragile in the sense of no one to lean on but yourself.

Our Story

beautiful sunset

From my recent travel in my homeland, I’ve learned a couple of things that I must engrave in my mind, things that usually only me and my very self could comprehend. I was with my family for some weeks, it was a hardship living in a different world (in Europe) trying to adapt and get used to this new culture that I’ve encountered.

During my stay, I have always tried to get in touch with my parents and with my siblings, though it was quite a challenge for us having this 7 hours time difference. But despite everything we have successfully overcome those dilemmas. Especially my homesickness, sadness, and all other factors that ruin my emotions whilst on my stay in this strange country.

But finally, after 3 years of separation, we have all reunited again for the very first time. My brother (second to me) is also working out of the country so it was tough for us to be together as one.

As one of our family activities, we went out for a trip, a very special occasion for us to celebrate our reunification. It’s a rare chance to be together (as in together). Generally, we opt to go out for a family dinner or family mass but this time it’s time for a seashore trip. 

And there the commencement of my soul-searching in a stunning resort back in Zamboanga City  I did discover various characteristics involving my family.



Meanwhile, in the depths of the seaside, I had an opportunity to talk heart to heart with my one and only sister that I haven’t seen for these past 3 years. She did have a bundle of a mess, some crunches of struggles, and a strife of her own I wanna comfort her and be a sister that I could.

Now, I have truly understood how it feels to be helpless. Sometimes when hearing these problems from my family, it’s hard to help them with my physical support. Financial would be like acceptable but being there to help them physically is truly one of the hardest.

My sister isn’t that open with me, I assure you it’s normal to be independent as a teenager but on the long run, you have to consider to open up with your problems to your parents and siblings (sisters). Well, it’s difficult but you have to get those magnitude courage to do it. It’s one of your challenge as a teenager!

Moving forward after our enduring conversation, she conceded me her inner profound love of crochet and shared me her creations.

What is Crochet


A new-found hobby that evolved into a small business that she wanna venture in. She named it Crochet by Miss A full of experiments of artistic talent that she possesses with a couple of personal touch of her own mark.

Offers a large variety of crochet collections with the client’s personal preferences indeed, plus It’s so affordable that everyone could buy it.

For those who are unfamiliar Crochet is made of yarns or thread or strand that are interlocking in loops to make a fabric. You can make any forms as you like as long as you have a pattern and surely a crochet hook.

I’ll give you some chunks of ideas about her articrafts through the photos that I will show you. (I’m the one who took the photo, feeling like a photographer haha) let’s see it I’ll show you some.

I’m very proud of her as a sister she’ll remain my one and only best ever sister in the world. I’ve known it even from the very start with the incredible and outstanding talent that she has the whole world must see it.

This is only the beginning of her career as an artist! I’m pretty sure she’ll be successful in this field. Crochet is not a very known activity in the Philippines, Tricot is mostly known that resembles crochet.

    This is so amazing. I have always loved crochet items, back when i was younger i always tried to do crochet but i was never talented like you. Your works are amazing. I love your work especially toys for my kids.. i wish there was more for boys dolls though like fire fighter or police crochet dolls for them. I had a sister before, she died and i never got to experience but long to have a girl best friend that will always be there with you throughout your lifetime. I pray for the success of your business becuase it has been molded from love. Thank you.
    By the way i also joined your giveaway. Im blessed mother of 2.. two boys who i wish would have a bond so strong as they will forever be intwined by blood. 😊
