Blog Awards & RAK

I know I am awful at handling awards..not that I am not grateful but its just that I am too lazy :D
Anyways, I have been lucky to receive a few blog awards in the past few days and thought I'd share them with you here finally.

I first one is from Bhavana - Thanks a ton sweetie!

The next one is from Aditya - Thanks a lot!!

Next is from Tejal - Thank you, girl! It really means a lot :)
And I got another one from Hussena today- Thanks a lot. I really appreciate it.

I think these awards have made their way to almost everybody I know :D. So I'm going to pass this on to any of my lovely readers, all of whom are worthy. If you would like to take this award and pass it on, please be my guest :0) 

I shared a few random things about me sometime back. So I will just share some random things going on my side these days..ha!

1. I am being really lazy these days. I don't know what's getting to me..Is it the heat? Maybe..I don't know but I really lazy lazy :)
2. I am a complete movie freak and love to watch movies in theaters but its been six months since I last did that. I have to be happy watching downloaded movies on computer (Courtesy DH!! Marriage changes so many things :D )
3. I am experimenting with my cooking a lot lately. Learning new dishes from cookery shows and trying them out. Its fun!
4. I am a bit bored of life these days. It seems as if the excitement  has disappeared. I think a  nice vacation might bring it back (DH are you reading this? :D)
5. I left my job 3 months back because I was bored and it was too hectic. Now I am looking for a new one and hoping it wouldn't bore me.
6. Its my birthday this month and I am excited about it. I know I sound like a teenager but I am sometimes crazy like that. But who cares, its the first one I will be celebrating with DH :)

I  guess that's all I have going on with me for now :D

I also wanted to share this sweet card that Romina sent me when I was celebrating my 100 followers. Thanks a lot dear. I was so happy to receive it because I didn't expect it at all. So thoughtful of you!

I guess I have covered most of the things. If I missed out on any award please let me know. Will ya? :D

Hopefully I will be back with a card tomorrow. Till then ciao!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

I know I w…

10 things I love about you..

...thats what I told my DH yesterday as it was our engagement anniversary. One year back on 16th of May, we got engaged and I wanted to gift him something special and different and that is when I stumbled upon Monicka Wright's blog and decided to case her wonderful note card. I took the colors from Smidapaper May Color Challenge, polka dot theme from Lawnscaping Challenge. And I am also playing along Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#56 - Get Sticky.

Supplies: papers: Echo Park Papers(For the Record);embellishment: Element stickers from Echo Park Springtime collection, Little Girl, For the Record, Walk in the Park, Twine from the twinery(charcoal)
I used one of my favorite Echo Park collection "For the Record" for this card and love the way it turned out. Added a little hand-stitching along the edges, embellished each tag with lot of elementary stickers from different Echo Park Collection and had the most fun writing those 10 things about DH. It made me fell so ble…

Gond Painting !!

Wishing you all a very happy holi !! Its a colorful spring festival celebrated here in India and I wish that it brings lots of happiness and good things in life for all of you!

And on this colorful occasion, I thought I'd share something different and something close to my heart with you all. I have been crafting right from when I was a little kid and I have always loved to explore different forms of art and craft one of which being the traditional folk art of India.

India has a very rich culture when it comes to art and off late I have been hooked to giving all different forms of folk art a try. After I tried my hands at Madhubani last year which is a folk art from the state of Bihar, I am now hooked to another tribal art form called Gond from the states of Central India (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh)

I love the way these Gond Paintings look. They are simple and yet so detailed. Its all about filling in the everyday life motifs with dots, dashes and lines.
