Hello Crafters,

This is the first card from my dear little boy for his father.
This is the first time when Lil champ can properly wish DH, so I thought of taking this oportunity to create  cards with some help (read "interference") of Lil Champ. :-)

Here comes the first one, others will follow soon...
The card shows am airplane carrying sentiment "flying high". Inside of the card says..." Dear Papa, with you by my side, I 'll always be flying high"

Exclusive range of Footwears....for Dolls....!!!

Sunehra's Doll House brought back lots of childhood memories.

With those memories, came the thoughts of craft and art work we used to do as kids. This Footwear shoe rack is one of those projects which I created along with my elder cousin sis during my school days...!!!

And Thanks a ton to my Mom who has still kept it in such a good condition.
I asked her yesterday, it was safely stored in the cupboard.
Only thing I had to do was some dusting and take the pictures....Love you mom...!!

Please take a look and tell me how is it....Oh yes, these small sandals are made up of icecream spoons (the small wooden ones), ribbons, laces and lots of glue.

Hello Friends...

After a long absence and no crafting for almost a month, I am back with this paper beaded jewelley.

Paper Beads Earrings

Here is my take on Itsy  Bitsy logo color challenge.

Now a days I am in love with paper beads.
First thing I look in any paper is possibility to create beads....And I have found that those small advertisement pamphlets are best for them- colorful, shiny and robust.

So here are the earrings created from green and blue paper beads.

Handmade Jewellery

Hello Friends,

This is some very old work that has been done during my college days (basically by my mom).
Courses of jewellery making were in full bloom at our place during those days and my mother's classes were full of girls asking for learning new designs everyday.

So here, I am sharing some typical neck pieces. Picture quality is not very good as I have used my mobile phone camera.

During my recent visit to home, I have brought all that jewellery making stuff from my mother's trash. Now I am just hoping to find some peaceful time to create something worth.

The party time Fun - Invitations

No party is complete without the invitation cards. Along with party caps me n my sis created some birthday invites also.
So here are the pics, we created some 8 cards with chart papers, birthday stickers, washi tapes and glitter pens.

My dear DH also contributed by writing the details of party, as I was trying to engage the birthday boy in something else (he wanted to write everything himself..!!))

I was delighted to see the end result of this teamwork and we went ahead to invite all the friends.
Later on when one of friend asked about the date....we were shocked to see that we forgot to mention the date on card...!!!

It was a hillarious moment and we went back to every one's house to specify the date of clelebration... :))

Its party time - Chocolate box

And here is the final creation for party time- a jungle theme decorated box for chocolates.

No birthday is complete without going to the school in a new colorful dress and distributiong chocolates to friends and teachers. It feels like the most special person in the whole universe... (well atleast i used to feel like this..:-))

So we are trying our best to make little champ's day special.
I decorated the box for him based on a jungle theme.

An old box has been used as base and coloured chart paper, cut outs from a Winnie the Poo packing paper, some glitter and lots of stickers did all the wonder. Grasss is created by cutting a old magazene's green page.



other details:

Learning: We used same thick chart paper to cover the inner box, which slightly increased its size, hence it opening and closing was not as smooth as before. We must have used some normal colored paper or packing paper for this...!!!

Quilled Earrings

Hello Friends,

Here is my take on quilled earrings...
Wanted to do this since long...finally managed to create two unique pieces

and one disaster...

Later on, in my attempt to modify the looks of this pair, I damaged the pair...!!! :-(
Learning (for myself): Don't over do anything. Take a call and stop and accept your creation as it is.

Finger Puppets for those cute tiny hands...

Hello Friends,

This was a very random and unplanned kind of project,

In a fraction of second I asked Little one to join me to make finger puppets.
Did a very random google search and found some interesting stuff (link).
Though I found most of the people using felt, I used chart paper (It was lying in my trash)
And here is our attempt-

Birthday Card- Quilled Monograms

Hello Friends,

I have been really occupied with many things both at work and home. Hence was not able to spend quality time in crafting.
However I created this card for my friend whose birthday was on 12th feb'13. This a result of night shift work (12am to 1 am) for 4-5 days...!!
I tried some honey comb quilling and quilled monograms for the first time. Initially I took long time to create monograms, but once I learned the technique, it was faster.

Initially my idea was to frame it and gift it as a desktop item, but due to lack of time I converted it into a card.

Here are a some quick snapshots-

Card's Inner View

And my handmade photoframe also got a home as I gifted it to my other very good friend. Both of them were very delighted to receive these gifts from me, which made my efforts worth....!!

And now, I am waiting to hear all your comments...
