Around here.....

..its been so quiet on my blog these days and I thought I will give you a little update on whats been happening around here. So lets start with the most important stuff

First, Its my birthday today. So a very Happy Birthday to me :D
No big celebrations as such but I do have dinner plans with DH and sis-in-law. So that should be good!!
 (Hopefully I will have an actual birthday cake in the evening instead of this virtual one :D)

Second, its something that I have been meaning to tell you all for a while now and if you follow me on Facebook you might know already. I am into my 8th month of pregnancy and expecting a baby to fill my arms in June last week. So I am laying low these days, enjoying baby dreams and taking it a little slow :D

Third, I was featured on the Paperie Designs' Studio last Friday and completely forgot to post about it here. I would love for you to stop by there and let me know what you think :)

Fourth, I am working on some real fun custom orders and a few recycled projects that I can't wait to share with you all. Here is a little peak at my craft table :)

        Work in progress Custom Order- Cardboard Mini Albums

Custom Order - Baby Scrapbook

Second Painting in my Gond Painting Series. You can check the first one here.

Work in Progress - Recycling food containers 

Did I, by any chance mention that I am taking it slow? :D

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…

Birthday Explosion Box!

Here is something that I am very proud of. This was my first attempt at a 3D paper cake and I adore how it turned out. More loved because I am not really a pink girl and this explosion is all pink and I still love it :)

Don't ya love that cake? By the way, I recycled the "Happy Birthday" from an actual birthday cake :D
I am entering this for the Lessology Challenge#29 - Birthday Party Lulupu Challenge#17 - Fancy Me (I fancy special fold cards and I fancy trying out new things) Itsy Bitsy Challenge - Pretty with Pink (Pink, pearls, pattern papers, posy, paper clips, photographs)
Hope you fellas like it !
