Mommies really had a blast last Saturday, November 17, 2018 when Mega Prime's exclusive Prime Mom Club held a mompreneur workshop at the Prime Hotel Grand Ballroom in Sgt. Esguerra Street, Quezon City. Lucky moms who were able to register for the said event went home not only with loads of information on how they could earn for the holidays but they also had lots of fun with all the learning they had on how to make this Christmas more memorable with pinasarap moments.

I admit, I'm not really into anything artsy and crafty. But I tried my hand on creating that holiday trinket that particular Saturday. And I'm glad I did! At first, it was a bit difficult for me to do so because I really had short fingernails and also because my eyes were a bit blurry since I forgot my eye glasses at home. But I was surprised to discover how therapeutic doing all these trinket charms were. What made it even better was that Ms. Pacheco also taught moms how to properly price the charms and where to source the materials!

As if those crafty skills aren't enough, we were also taught how to make Cranberry Polvoron and Holiday Pastillas Balls by Chef Mira Angeles. During the workshop, Chef Mira demonstrated how she does those best-selling polvoron as well as the pastillas balls (where mom attendees had a hands-on and practical experience on making during the event). These delicious desserts, when packaged nicely can be sold during Christmas or they could also be great ideas for giveaways.
