"Aadya" says, Thanks!!

So, my 2.5 month old daughter "Aadya" wanted to say Thanks to all of her sweet Uncle and Aunts who have sent her so much love and wishes since the day she was born and her mom(aka me) is equally overwhelmed to receive so much love.

This post has been sitting in the drafts for quite some days now just because I didn't know where and how to begin saying thanks to all you lovely people out there who thought about me and my daughter in the past few months and sent us so much love and good wishes. We are truly blessed!!

I was so overwhelmed to see that even when  I wasn't blogging, all you people kept in touch with me through e-mails and messages, a lot of you even visited my blog daily, and I even found some new followers of my blog. How amazing is that? So I just wanted to say THANK YOU and give you all a BIG hug for being around.

I wanted to share all the little gifts and cards I received from my blogging as well as non-blogging pals.

The first card that arrived was from Rachana and she was so thoughtful to send it out at my in-laws address right after the delivery. I couldn't take the picture of the card but all I can say is it was so pretty and I was so delighted.

Second package of thought and kindness arrived from Jovita. She sent me this cute little kitty hood blanket, a wrist rattle and a gorgeous card. Her act of love and affection left me speechless.

And here are some gifts from our non-blogging pals. They were all so excited to see our little daughter :)

   Some cute little clothes

      Ultra sweet pink basket full of tiny little things

    And the very useful Johnson's baby kit

Again a big THANK YOU to each one of you for your wishes!

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.

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…

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…

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.
