Happy Diwali Day 2

Wish you all a very happy Diwali once again! I hope you all enjoyed the day 1 of this series. If you haven’t already seen it, go check it out here.

This second card is a shaker card I made with the scraps of the first card and adding little gold and tiny star shaker elements. I made the window using a shimmer gold card stock and die cut the “Happy Diwali” sentiment.

Happy Diwali Day 1!

Wish you all a very happy Diwali!

Today I am very excited to make a Diwali card for you all as that’s the one that won the poll I put up on Facebook last week. I made a bunch of these cards and sent them out to friends and family.

Die cutting the little elements and putting them in small zip lock pouches made it very easy for me to assemble each card. Now, while making multiples, I die cut and heat embossed them all together and kept only one card undone to make in front of the camera for you guys.

Check out the video.

Ganesha Art Journal

Hello my crafty friends,

Let me start of the post by saying “Ganpati Bappa Morya. Pudchya varshi lavkar ya”. In today’s video, I share how to make this beautiful Ganesha art journal with striking colors.

I had so much fun making this page using different techniques like die cutting, distress inking, stenciling and paper piecing. I have also used some embellishments to give the project more life and interest.

A memorable trip to India – Part 3

 Hi guys,

        This last and final post of the series is the reason I went to India in the first place; to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday. It is done as ceremony to renew the couple’s vows as per south indian traditions (Sashtyapthapoorthi). We had a lot of fun prepping for the wedding and at the wedding. We also had a small photo shoot after the wedding. I am sharing a few pictures with you all.
   You know you are all set to celebrate when you have beautiful mehendi drawn on your hands. You feel extra special when your dad or husband feeds you food while you enjoy the beauty of the henna design and the aroma of mehendi. My mom being the bride chose peacock designs for both of us. Here are a few pictures.
     Let us now set the stage for the bride and groom to tie the knot once again and watch them say “I still do.”

And they finally tie the knot.

A few pictures now from the photo shoot after the wedding.

A memorable trip to India – Part 2

Hope you guys enjoyed the first part of the post. Moving on to the most awaited aspect of the trip. You guessed it right. Food!

Food:
    What’s more interesting than street shopping? Street food. Having visited Mumbai, street chat was on top of my list. I also wanted to try some authentic Maharashtrian food. So my father in law took me to Prakash, a Maharashtrian joint in Dadar. The food was just amazing. We also got to enjoy Gujarati thali at Thackers and took a ride to the Queen’s necklace. And the south indian banana leaf feast was on cards as we went for a family function to Chennai. A few pictures for you guys.

Travel:
        We traveled to a lot of temples including Shirdi and other south indian temples. Some different modes of commute we enjoyed are here..

A memorable trip to India – Part 1

Hi guys,

    I am back after a long vacation from India. This trip was filled with festivals, celebrations, a lot of travel accompanied with a whole lot of desi food! What more could you want from a trip to the Indi..
I would like to share some fond moments of this trip with all of you. Hope you enjoy!

Today I am posting only a few pictures from all the shopping from this trip.

Shopping: 
  Having landed in Mumbai, I had to hit the streets and do some hands on bargaining. Catching up with old friends and having them take sick leave just to hang out with you makes you feel special.

Shopping at Linking Road with a friend

With chuddy buddies after years

If you are in or near Chennai and you love Kanchipuram silk sarees this is a place you just can’t miss.  And if it’s your first time around, be prepared to invest in a good 3-4 hours to pick a saree.

A trip to Kanchipuram is always rewarding

Love the colorful Rajasthani skirts

The next part of the series is going to be filled with Food and travel. So stay tuned.
