Card with pencil shavings..

This is a real simple craft which is done using the shavings of pencils.

It is a good activity to do with little older kids who can handle the delicate pencil shavings.

I guess, almost all of us would have done it during our childhood days.
It is simple, easy to make, & with minimal craft supplies. You just need a cardstock, glue, some colourful pencils and a sharpener.

Here is our attempt.

Word Art

I saw this sometime ago in one of the MAD sort of shows in one of the kid's channels...

The random fonts and sizes of letters gives it a very different kind of look.

I liked the work...and hence decided to give it a try.

So it started with cutting different letters from different newspapers. And then sticking them randomly on a sheet of cardstock.

We also created two cards for father's day..that is today. :-)

I am thinking about using this word art sheet for some other may be a pen holder..any suggestions from the talented vrafters are always welcome...:-)

Ghadoli decoration

"No event in our home can be over without any crafty thing done"
These were the words of bride-to-be, that is my youngest sis. So we rolled up our sleeves and started the work.
The wedding took place last month..because of overload of work..I couldn't click many pics of the work we did. Here is the one activity we did earlier as well.
As a tradition of ghadoli in our community, the sis in law carries a small pot on her head, fills it with water from the nearest temple and bride uses this water to bath after haldi ceremony. The whole lot of ladies and kids march on the way to temple, dancing to the beats of punjabi dhol.
So sharing the pic of a simple steel matki decorated with maroon velvet cloth, laces, and embellishment.

Me and the little one did the task. He was either putting glue on pot or on his fingers...and was helping me with selecting the embellishments and laces.. :-)
