You is Beautiful :)

I recently watched the movie "The Help"....what a wonderful movie it was!
I really liked the part when the nanny tells the kid to repeat this line after her - "You is beautiful, You is strong, You is important".
Such a simple thing but it can have a profound impact on Life ~

I designed this card at work today - and had been waiting to get back to my craft room and try it out. Oh my Gosh! It came out so neat - I am so much in love with it.
Lady birds are my fav - bright and cute and harmless :P

Love :)

Last few days of summer...

It has been raining here in Minneapolis, everything looks so nice and fresh but it also means......last few days of summer. But I am kind of excited for the fall, not so excited for the snow though.

Here is one of the many cards I have been working on. Lots more coming..

Slow down ~

There are times when I just seem to be rushing through the days - my To do list never seems to end!
Then is the time when I need a constant reminder to slow down and
relax. One thing I have noticed is that the more relaxed you are ,the more in control you seem and be!.

Another personalized card I worked on a few weeks back , didnt get a chance to post it then. My customer requested for some yellow roses and a mix and match of scrapbooking, quilling and a pretty collage of her fav pics.
I am glad she loved it and I totally love this idea of personalized

Relax and Smile,

Love September

I love this time of year as we head into fall - it always inspires me to clean the house, do some shopping , make some changes!
But cleaning up takes lot of time and energy.I think it is so easy to buy stuff and even easier to make a mess. Cleaning up is the hard part! lol
But anyway, I just love the way I put my house - well and organized!

And I also love this graduation card I made for a friend - wine glass ornaments are my fav, I never miss an opportunity to use them :)

Lazy weekend ~

I had a pretty lazy weekend. Sometimes it feels so good to be doing nothing at all especially if life gets too much that you start feeling you've lost touch with yourself, with what you love!
I spent some quiet time reading blogs and I feel just okay with not doing anything more.
Trust me, doing nothing can be very productive. It recharges you, makes you feel relaxed and you feel so ready for what the week has to offer.
A simple card for a cute couple - simply loved making this.

Breathe more, Rush less..

Back after a break..

Life had been so hectic at my workplace for the past month that it was hard to spend time with the household work ...forget about making cards!

It is indeed a challenge to have a perfect work life balance.
But the good thing is that I got another custom order for a friends birthday which I managed to work on and now working on a few cards for a store who has agreed to sell my cards. Yipppeeee.

It sure is gonna be BRIGHT and SUNSHINY for Eenzy Beenzy!
I totally loved the quilled cake...and even more the cherry on the top :)

Smiles all the way

Sketching all the way
