Welcome 2011 ~

As we welcome the new year with open arms, Its time to look back and cherish all the good things that happened last year.
For me, Life was the strange and funny, irritaing and annoying at times, exciting and confusing most of the times - but now when I look back everything that happened had its own wow moments. Lots of learnings and unlearnings happened all this while.

This is a tiny little card I made yesterday. I used construction paper for the quilling. The paper is really nice and can be easily curled. It gives the pattern a really soft look.

Wishing you the best of health,happiness and love this year :)

Happy New year!

Down the memory lane!

Today while clearing up my mail box I found this - an article I had written for 'Avant Garde' our college magazine!
This brought back the memories of those 4 years! They were truly the best years of my life.
That was the time of dreaming, aiming and achieving, fun and frolic, tears and laughters and making friends for Life!

To all my friends in college - while you study hard for your grades make sure you dont miss out the fun part. Few years down the line, you might forget the grades, actually you WILL! but the memories you make will last for ever and ever.

The newest addition to my basket is the tiny cute gift bag - perfect for tiny stuff like gift cards , jewelry or may be chocolates :)

P.S. - Check out the new logo on my fb page.

Season of Joy!

Christmas parties, gifts, decorations and celebrations! - sure the holiday season brings a  smile on every face!
Another card I made on this weekend - this one just happened while I was curling some left over strips of paper! 

Sometimes I feel - I was born to make quilled cards . lol!

Recently I came across this website - It is a non-profit organization focussed on development of poor children. You can Sponsor a Child's education for as little as Rs 600/month. I was quite amazed how a lil step from our side can make a wonderful difference in somebody's Life! 

Lets bring a smile on someone's face :)

Jingle Bells ~

Here comes the the most beautiful and happy time of the year! 
Everything around is so beautifully decorated - Check out the picture of 'The Mall of America', they have put a three floor high Christmas tree - looks so gilttery.

I tried my hand on quilling bells - they came out super neat so I made ten of these super 3D cards.
I had been longing to use my snowflake punch :). The glitter I put on them makes the card look super cool.

Merry Christmas :)

The happy corner!

Finally a picture of my craft room, this is the happiest corner of my home! 
Whenever I need to brighten up my mood - thats where I come :)

This is a copy of the previous one I made - One of my friend wanted this for his girl. I use my loop punch for the corners and inside of the card reads - 'Girl you are amazing just the way you are!' :)
Love the 3D'ness of the card !

Another card that I made out of the left over ecofi felt.

Thanks for stopping by!

The first milestone!

Recently we celebrated our first milestone together - our life has been like a roller coaster all this while... some crazy falls , some smooth turns and some scariest 360 degrees.
But I am glad we landed safe and strong.
This is one of the craziest thing ever I have done - Craziness needs company and I am glad , I have a good one :P

Here is one of the quilled cards I made, it looks so beautiful, I am so in love with it -

Quill Quill Quill

It's amazing how coiling paper can turn out to awesome art !!!
Believe me quilling is so easy to learn - this is one of those satisfying creative activities which can be started with a minimum of equipment and expenditure.I did my first quilling card using a toothpick, glue and a regular photocopy paper!
Once you start - there is no stopping! :))
                       I made this vibrant card for a friend of mine , she celebrates her first anniversary next week. I so much love the vibrant shades of this card.

Here is a paper bag I decorated using my fav stickers. Thanks creative bee for the idea , I plan to work on it more.
Creative bee has a very interesting newsletter - Make sure to bookmark her to your reading list.
