I had purchased few particle board shapes and a conch shaped chopra, on my last craft supply shopping spree, without really giving it a thought what I actually wanted to do with them (I know sometimes we crafters really gets greedy hoarding stuff).
Raksha Bandhan is falling in August this year. Every year I plan for sending handmade rakhis but could never do it except for few rakhis which I made 2-3 years back (and yes, I did not post them here). This year I wanted to do it and started well in advance.
I remember having thick, shoulder length and lustrous curly hairs when I was a kid. My hair were so curly that after washing and drying, all my hairs used to gather over my head instead of flowing down. My mother used to oil them and braid them in tight braids, to appease my grandfather as he used to find my gathered hair untidy. Over the years, they lost curls and became wavy (not sure of the reasons but too much of tight braids must have worked their magic) and also became thinner and frizzy.
