I am BACK + Winners!

Happy Monday people! How have you been all ? I had an awesome vacation in Goa. Since it was an off season visit to Goa, I had a completely different experience there. With all the rains, paddy fields all around, high tides in the ocean, it was all so gorgeous.  And then there were narrow roads surrounded by trees and greenery on both sides, no traffic signals and no traffic jams, it was all a delight :)

And on the anniversary day, we celebrated with a chocolate cake followed by dinner at Taj Exotica. Loved the food :D

And now for the winners of my giveaway, here are the lucky two :

E.T. @VIBGYOR Krafts    (from the old follower list)
Jessica@Stamping with Jessica  (from the new follower list)

Congratulations!! Please shoot me an email at ujjwal.handmadewithlove@gmail.com with your address and I will send the RAK out to you.

And Thanks to all of you for leaving such wonderful comments. I really felt great knowing that you all love what I do here. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

As much as I want to get back to crafting, it will have to wait a while because I got a knee injury to take care of (yup, I am pretty good at getting hurt and this time it happened in Goa :) ). Hope to see you soon with something crafty !

Till then, take care!

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.

...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.
