Fairy lights, buntings, stockings, Christmas trees. I absolutely LOVE Christmas decorating. Bright strokes of red and green paint on projects, hanging ornaments from a real tree. One of the most beautiful things that I’m sure even you agree is Christmasy wreaths hanging from your door, with berries and flowers and what not. It just brings happiness through your door. But it’s just not fun going from shops to shops checking price tags like INR 700 and INR 1000 for one small ring with green stuff sticking out of it. I agree it can be tempting, but..
This table has been my long time partner in hundreds of creative art and writing projects. It has been with me since I was four years old. These two chairs, Mamma and me have sat on side by side, every afternoon. If you talk about giving “space”for getting the “flow”to do your creative things, then, literally, this table has given me the “space” with it’s wide and long surface!
Make sure to stay till the end for a exciting 100th blog post celebration giveaway!
I never knew decorating my room, or for that matter – my house – would become the most interesting part of my days, until I moved into this new house in North of Goa. It’s what my dream was made of. It’s how I always wanted my home to be – sliding doors, picture windows, modern bathrooms. O boy, not something my parents fancied a lot, but I do. Yes, I do! Hehe!
So much so that last month when I was going to be celebrating my 10th birthday, all I wished for was people would give me gifts to decorate my room.
I sighed. I was itching to find a stamping card idea, and execute it in my art. (I was seeing idea’s on Pinterest) but I couldn’t. I don’t know why.
“Ugh.” I scrolled, and scrolled, then suddenly a image popped up. What? I clicked on the picture and… drum roll! After tons of huffing and puffing, I’d finally found something that I liked…
Oh wow! Just imagine… if somebody will tell you to go and buy anything you want, whatever amount, whatever price. What fun will it be? I mean.. that’s just beyond my dreams. I don’t know, but i love shopping art and craft supplies!( online, as well as local art shops) Well, yeah – it’s not that I bring it and don’t use it. No, no. You know how much i like doing craft, right? So, how about some shopping…
Ooh, stationary, pens, diaries, stickers, I just LOVE THEM. I’ve been dreaming of creating my own diary – stitching it, decorating the cover. Gosh! How exciting! Are you like me? If yes, I think you’ll like this post. I recently made my own custom diary, and I’m here to share it with you!
Something new—something different. I’ve tried many kinds of art, but none as exciting as this one. When I made it, It turned out so beautiful, that I HAD to make more. So… I came up with 4 different types of beautiful shaker cards. Continue reading →
Experince the joy of plucking from your own garden. We have a pot of mint in our yard, and everyday me and Sufiana(my sister who’s 1 & a half years) have been touching them. The air fills with it’s fragrance And after Sufi touches them, the brings them to her nose—she knows the fragrance—-she loves it.
In Goa, Coconut trees are everywhere. They are just beautiful. And as you see, we have really heavy monsoon in Goa—-when the heavy rains falls on the great coconut trees, it creates a unbelievable splashing sound. In one way, that’s the beauty of goa. So, this art of mine, is inspired by me and mamma looking up in the sky—seeing the big leaves swaying one side of the other, in the breeze. The gigantic leaves, almost touching the ground—the coconut trees.
My dear blog reader Mridula Prakash,—or madhu had sent something very special a couple of months back. She send me a pack of 3 botanical journals, along with some other things! If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you must know how fond I am of diaries. Really. It’s actually a while when she sent me those, but I didn’t blog about it yet, because not until now did I actually used them and turned them into something special. The journals are so pretty, I didn’t want to write anything it it until I actually find some perfect to write in it.
