Its magical ~

The day I started blogging about my cards and stuff I have been doing – I received an overwhelming response from friends , family and strangers. Believe me it was more than enough to keep me going. The comments and the feedback I receive on my posts is pretty much everything I look forward to.:) 

Its truly magical, how a little spark inspired me and I am glad it passed on to so many people around.

Here is a simple quilled card for all my lovely crafty friends, I love you all :)

 Eenzy Beenzy makes me happyy and I wish it brings happiness to others as well. Next month is my first blog anniversary, so I am working on a give away. Keep watching! You may be the lucky one!

Thank u all to help me keep it alive!

Its a sign ~

Over the past few months, I had been spending a lot of time and money on cabs travelling to my workplace and back. It was a total pain to bear the taxi drivers each day.... But I kept at it, coz I had a kind of subconscious fear of taking a bus.. But one fine day..I built up the courage and explored travelling by bus..Gosh! It was so easy...and now I wonder all day long y was'nt I doing that before! 

I think when we stay safe inside our comfort zones, we limit ourselves to experiencing things we already know.
So next time when you experience that queasy feeling of stepping out, don’t shy away from it ...
Thats a sign!!

Explore the world around, welcome it with open arms with a smile on your face! :)

Here is a quilled pattern I made today....Quilling is my second being the first ;)

Rise and Shine!

March Madness!

Can you believe it snowed here in Minneapolis when the rest of the world has the beautiful sun. Not fair!
I hope this is the last snow of the season.

Here is a simple but beautiful card I made to end a not so beautiful day.
I like the soft shades of greens and yellows in this!

Have a bright rest of the week!

My pretty yellow daffodils!

My husband got me these cute daffodils over the weekend :). Arnt they the prettiest thing ever! I wake up each morning to see them smiling at me.
That makes my day brighter...and it reminds me that how ever hard my day is going to be , there is happiness and beauty to enjoy right next to me :)

A quick card I made yesterday - my friend requested for one. The design is inspired by the nail art pattern I am wearing right now :) lol

Rise and Shine :)

Smiles and Cheers!

Life may not always be beautiful - things may not go the way you wish to. Sometimes if you are extra careful about something you still stumble or fall.
Thats life - ups and downs , smiles and tears , good days and bad days!
All that matters is how soon you bounce back after a fall. Some people take a minute , others take days and some never wish to bounce back!

I made this cheer up card for a friend of mine who is going through a tough phase of his life! I hope things get better for him!

Smile even if its your bad day - it would make a difference!

You keep me going!

Thanks Tilly's Treasure for passing me on the blog award! Feels so good!

Just finished working on two collages - that was a custom order for a friend of mine.
I really like the concept of using pictures on cards , that adds such a nice personal touch!
I make sure to email the pictures to my customers before I finally send out the cards. That makes them really happy coz it gives them a chance to modify anything they dont feel really happy about and also they so much look forward to the cards after having a sneak peek at the draft version.

Thats such a beautiful birthday message for a mom!

Thats the closer look at the quilled pattern.

A huge Thank you to all my crafty friends and those special customers. You all keep me going :)

I am totally a night bird.... getting up early in the morning is something I dont like at all!

Today has been an awesome morning - It was so good to see the bright sun rays waking me up! after those dull and hazy mornings I have been seeing for the past few months! 
Just could not resist clicking this picture today!

I love the bright colours on this one..I am glad the fringed flower came out really nice! 

Hope you all have a bright weekend :)

Happy Womens Day!

Sometimes I find my Life so boring - I literally have to drag myself to work. But there are days when I feel like a superman! 
What I have realized is - "What you do is not as important as how you do it!" The catch to a happy day is to smile and do common things uncommonly well!

The real reward comes from the sense of personal satisfaction that you get from knowing that you have done a great job.
Another thing that adds colour to my Life is my - this lil corner!
Here is a simple card I made for my cousin - he is another reason of smile and laughter in my Life!

Introducing my very first creation using my bamboo pen.

Know that if you have made people smile and laugh - you have done a good job!

Happy Thank you ~

A sincere , well timed Thank you often has more impact than you will ever know! 
I usually put thank you notes and stickies for my husband when he helps me out with the cooking, laundry or cleaning the house! Sounds funny though...but it sure works :) 
Here are a few Thank you notes I made recently! I usually pack them along while sending out packages to my customers. And I always get to hear back from them in terms of the feedback or sometimes a phone call or a text. Thats pretty much everything I look forward to! a little Thank you can make a big difference. :)

Remember when ~

I could not stop watching this over and over! This animation is from the movie "Up" and the song is by Alan Jackson!
Can anything be any cuter and touching than this!

The the lines I like the best are -
Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookn' back it's just a steppin' stone
To where we are,
Where we've been
Said we'd do it all again
Remember when~

I made these visiting cards or thank you tags or whatever from the left over paper. Aren't they cute! I am sure not any cuter than the video!

Thanks for looking, Hope you all have a great week ahead!
