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-

I loved them all, very quick to create and fun to play with.

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-

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...

Love Card...!

Hello All,

To Welcome the month of love, here is my creation.

I have used simple stamps for creating those tulips on a white CS, cut them and pasted them on red CS.
Tried to do some distressing for the first time...(definitely not up to the mark).
Hand cut hearts and sentiment on pattern papers.

End result was not so sharing it here.

Please give your comments, they are definitely needed for my improvement.

PS: If anybody is interested, I can share the picture of my stamps, I am really getting creative cum mad to use all the stuff lying around in my home. :-)

Keep Smiling,
