Creo by Lady Katutz Covers, Maxicards n Stamps

Hi!

As the month of November 2016 draws to a close,
I end my month of November with the close
of my Creo by Lady Katutz Blogoversary.


{This is a special request to be posted here on my blog.}

And my philatelic and maximaphily souvenir to
commemorate my Blogoversary
or my Anniversary 
as Kathleen Hernandez (Lady Katutz) of
Creo by Lady Katutz, - the artist, artisan and writer,
is also a special request for me to undertake this 2016
by the Supreme Court (by the Chief Justice Sereno) and
by the Postmaster - General,
acknowledged by PHLpost - Las PiƱas City branch.

I would have not did this without their proddings . . .

I am per request,
the Filipino with
the 1st Philippine sticker stamp
produced in (can't exactly remember) in year 2013 or 2014.
(at that time by the people of Justice Casio
with the consent of Chief Justice Carpio.
For now, to use, as per request and followed up by people of
the Supreme Court of the Philippines Spokesperson Te)


These are my Creo by Lady Katutz designed stamps
that is not for commercial use.

I went on to request the Philatelic Division of PHLpost
for the production of PHLpost my personalized stamps of the same design.
But this endeavour was shelved
due to high cost and
a year of waiting too at PHLpost at
the Manila CPO - Philatelic Division to Mega Manila.

But the above, if it did push thru would
render my requested Anniversary Maxicards - smileys or smily.


My postmarks are also a request
by MalacaƱang cleared thru the Communications Secretary,
acknowledged by PHLpost but
for me to produce on my own,
thru my own pocket,
as my designs are too intricate for
their own postmark carvers to undertake.


This is to show the request of the Supreme Court.
And that my Creo by Lady Katutz 5th year Anniversary
has truly transpired this year 2016.


Here it is,
my 3 simultaneous releases of 
my Creo by Lady Katutz (CBLK) Maxicards
with my Deltiology post:

(me as my own post office)



(with my own international postmark cancellation)




(with postmark of my own local post office of my own jurisdiction)



Here it is,
my 2 kinds of Aerogrammes as 
my Creo by Lady Katutz (CBLK) Covers
for my CBLK Philately post:

(with my local to international postmark cancellations)



A Happy Day

A Donation Project: My BnC Parilla Butterfly Sprite Needlecrafts Postcards

In attendance last National Heroes Day in November 2015 at the Proud Pinoy Stitchers Meeting at SM Megamall, I was chosen with my own arsenal for:

A Project with a Cause for me to do as:

Lady Kat (Kat-Kat in my younger years) with my hobby of Brooches n Crossstitches (BnC) as the crossstitcher;

Lady Katutz (Katutz in my toddler years) now with my hobby of Creo by Lady Katutz Designs (CBLKD) as the postcarder or postcard designer & maker; and

Lady Kath (Kathleen - my real name) as the Philippine's Postcrossing.com Ambassador as the writer and sender of Needlecrafts postcards & promoter of Amorsolo National Art DMC Philippines crossstitch patterns.


This is my 1st year to fulfill the above chosen duties for me to do with the proddings of Proud Pinoy Stitchers (PPS) with the knowledge of DMC Philippines from their main Megamall Store, and with consultation of DMC Philippine Artist Aldrin Jay Parilla to do a postcard rendition after stitching his designed, with an addition of my own mini silk ribbon embroidery on his Butterfly crossstitch design.


My Needlecrafts 2 own-designed postcards are to help the embroidery industry as a former embroidery artisan of my own hobby of Brooches n Crossstitches since 1985.  Focusing primarily on crossstitching thru the years, and now with silk ribbon embroidery in tow as my own addition to Parilla's crossstitch design pattern, my Needlecrafts 2 postcard of my BnC Parilla's Butterfly Sprite is to help proliferate the know-how and knowledge transfer in being a DMC Crossstitch Designer for our own country.  This is to further promote Filipino crossstitch designers of our country, the Philippines.

Parilla is the 1st DMC Philippine Artist to have his crossstitch designs into DMC Philippines' crossstitch patterns.  This is aside from our Filipino Artists - from our very 1st National Artist Fernando Amorsolo to living Philippine Artist Manuel Baldemor to mini Philippine Graphic Designers and add me to the list as Philippine Crossstitch Artist - Lady Kat of Brooches n Crossstitches (BnC) under Creo by Lady Katutz (CBLK).

For my Deltiology post:

Here's looking forward for a 1st fruitful year working for the proliferation of Filipino crossstitch designers ingenuity / ingenuinity in crafting and designing for our crossstitching public.  And, may we reach the international crossstitching , needlecrafts and embroidery community worldwide with our own. 

PLEASE NOTE:  I didn't receive funds for this project or for this donation project.

Kudos to us!!

A Donation Project: My BnC Amorsolo Girl with Mangoes Needlecrafts Postcards




When I got news that Amorsolo National Art has been turned and rendered into Amorsolo Crossstitch Design Patterns with the return of DMC Philippines, I hurriedly looked for a DMC store near me only to find out that the nearest Crossstitch Store carrying DMC products and Amorsolo's National Art crossstitch patterns is none other than Dreams Yarnshoppe, in Glorietta 5- Makati City.

They have a crossstitch, crochet and other thread crafts community forming at their shoppe.  I got to converse to most of their community goers, happy for having a Dreams Yarnshoppe near them.  I told them what I love to do and usually gets busy with in a day or daily . . . . my being a hobbyist turned into a full-time artist in this day of millenium.

Janet of Dreams Yarnshoppe together with the others chose me, if I could manage with my time and resources, to help the threads industry.  I told them I would like to help with my crossstitch pattern and kit purchases from their shop but focusing only on Needlecrafts with the return of DMC in our country with the re-birth of a new DMC Philippines.


A Project with a Cause for me as:

- Lady Kat (Kat-Kat in my younger years) with my hobby of Brooches n Crossstitches (BnC) as the crossstitcher;

- Lady Katutz (Katutz in my toddler years) now with my hobby of Creo by Lady Katutz Designs (CBLKD) as the postcarder or postcard designer & maker; and

- Lady Kath (Kathleen - my real name) as the Philippine's Postcrossing.com Ambassador as the writer and sender of Needlecrafts postcards & promoter of Amorsolo National Art DMC Philippines crossstitch patterns.


This is my 2nd year to fulfill the above chosen duties for me to do with the proddings of Dreams Yarnshoppe, also with the knowledge of DMC Philippines from their Megamall Store, and with the proddings of Proud Pinoy Stitchers to do it for the 2nd year with my consent.


My Needlecrafts postcards recipients for the 1st year thru regular postcrossing are crossstitch aficionados and some of them are crossstitchers whose works appears in crossstitch magazines in their country.  Others are crossstitchers whose works have been translated into postcards and are genuinely happy that the Philippines has such own Filipino works, art and designs in crossstitch.


Here's looking forward for a 2nd fruitful year working for the proliferation of Filipino crossstitch & needlecrafts ingenuity with our very 1st Philippine National Artist Fernando Amorsolo's national art in crossstitch.

PLEASE NOTE:  I didn't receive funds for this project or for this donation project.

Kudos to us!!

Donation to Postcrossing.com: CBLK Postcrossing Meeting Postcards

Hi, everyone!

Here's wishing Postcrossing.com, its Moderators, Volunteers and Ambassadors 
A MERRY CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I used to make annual monetary euro donations to support the Postcrossing.com project.  This 2016 is the 1st year that I had to tighten my belt and stop my monetary contribution.  Instead, I reverted to donating my Creo by Lady Katutz own-designed and Postcrossing.com-approved postcards from 2014 to 2015.

These approved Postcrossing.com postcards were approved for my personal Postcrossing use in conducting Meet-Ups and Mini Meetings last 2015.

This 2016, I'm donating one of my two Postcrossing.com postcard designs to Postcrossing.com in Portugal.  I had 30 of my Postcrossing Meeting Postcards printed and sent to them last October 21, 2016, Tuesday (Manila timezone) thru registered mail to Portugal.


Happy Holidays & more happy meetings for Postcrossing!!
