Desktop Calender!

I have been waiting impatiently to share this with you, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally I gathered the courage to do it.

I used to hand draw and water color when I was in school and that is something I used to love, something that took a back seat when I discovered stamping :D But I have been meaning to get back to it for a while as it is very therapeutic for me :)


And when I signed up for the Swap Central India's last swap - Calenders, I knew this was the opportunity I was waiting for. So I grabbed it with both hands and here is the result.

Please be kind, because I drew after years and these might not be perfect :)



  




















And there you have it. An outcome of labor of love. Even though my fingers went numb with all the drawing in one go, I still had so much fun and the results were so gratifying.

I hope you like it too. Please let me what you think, it would mean a lot to me. Thank you for all your love and support!

  19. Ujwalla, these are just masterful! Who knew you were so very talented? Each page is better than the next. I went through a phase of drawing and coloring flowers when I was very young and scanning through this post brought back memories of that. Of course I wouldn't dream of trying it again, but yours is just fabulous. Amazing stuff. I also wanted to write in to share with you a project I made using that Christmas stamp I took off your hands. Drop by sometime to my blog. Oh and I am your new follower :)
