Handpainted chopra/roli-chawal stand

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).

Papermache fun

During summer holidays I decided to engage kids in some craft work. Thought of making a name board for house as we did not have one and settled on papermache work.

Handmade Rakhis

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.

My Braid Story

Tight Braids with curly hairs
image courtesy here
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.

Air Dry Clay Key Chain

I bought a package of air dry clay from an online store along with some plastic modelling tools. Weekend went into trying this new craft(first attempt). Though I wanted white colored clay, I got a terracota one, never mind :-).

I collect stuff  thinking I can reuse that later. Sometimes it is quite difficult to keep them stored neatly as I do not have much storage space(perils of staying in a rented house) but I am unable to throw it away. And when this crafty urge appears, then I really feel happy to have all this around.

Made these bookmarks from old wedding invitation cards which I was having for last 7-8 years.



Earlier I had made some money envelopes also using wedding cards(here).

A quick post on recently made greeting card using paper quilling. I love this art form as it gives a 3D effect to your design and can be done easily. Take a look:
