Something out of Nothing

Hello my friends,

It is Cricket WORLD CUP, WORLD CUP & WORLD CUP everywhere...OMG, I'm so happy to see Indian team playing in the finals...Good Luck for the finals to men in Blue....

I just can't believe that it's already Thursday and it’s time to publish my weekly post. I would like to ask all of you a question, is it just me or everyone experiencing that the time is flying…

I was working on this project since Monday, finally it’s done. This time I attempted to make something out of nothing....a thing which I was about to throw away but I didn’t. Thank God… I listened to the creative voice inside my head which said make something out of this. So this time I recycled the burlap bag that we got from grocery shopping and the end results have been captured by my trusted camera. I just cut the bag and made some place mats for my kitchen using some old t-shirt, cloth scraps, threads and little imagination. Please have a look and let me know your feedback or input...

A happy heart:))
