Felty Flowers


 Hello Dear Friends.....Happy Rakshabandhan to all of you. I hope you all are having fun enjoying this joyous occasion. Miss Sunshine tied handmade rakhi to her brother. She was so proud that she made it all by herself. Though my little one didn't keep it for long but she was happy that she made it. I was happy too seeing her crafty adventures these days. Making paper planes and boats are her favorite thing to do these days. I finally, took some time off  to write this post today while lil one is napping and miss sunshine is busy with the scissors.

 I can't believe.... I am writing my first post of August. Time is really flying so fast...anyone else? or it just me. I wish it can slow down a little bit. Anyway, these days I am getting addicted to flickr 's  pool of Japanese craft books. This work is inspired by the lovely images I saw there....I love bright colors so I made this tiny tissue cozy with felt and little embroidery. Do take time to check out the link.... you will enjoy it and will get inspired for sure. Have a happy weekend everyone.

Hello Dear Friends...Today I have two little birdies to greet you! Sitting on a small log covered with tiny flowers my cute birdies will charm any one...I guess...










I made it just because I love birds....and enjoying so many of them in my backyard these days...its really a bliss...I used play dough again, I don't know how it is going to look when it will dry. May be I should get some clay for thing like this, but right now this is perfect for me.






I am happy to see my tweet tweet birdies....See you soon dear all!

Creative recycling

 Hello dear readers...today I have creative recycling project to show you. I finally found a way to use my play dough flowers.Its quick and simple as you can see in the picture. It took me 20-25 to finish this.


I thought these flower will go well with the light base of the jute string i have used and will create a spring look too. When I started the project I had no idea that it can look this cheerful. I am off to start a new project...see you soon here.

Something Out Of Nothing


Hello dear friends...hope you are keeping up well. Life is little bit relaxed as the summer vacation has started...so I am enjoying my sleep. I can't live without good sleep......true with everyone right! And when I get good sleep I think better :) So with well rested mind I finished this recycled bag in no time. I liked the way it turned out. Cute little bag out of the gunny sack and I got a chance to challenge myself to create something out of nothing. This is what I love about blogging, it gave me a chance to make or do things that were in the house but I never thought of making  something out of them. I always loved the creative things and learned a lot from my mother but making something every week and getting excited about what I am doing is all because of this blog. It really opened the doors for me to meet so many talented and creative blogger friends and learn new things and get inspired as well. I am happy to continue this as it makes me happy. 

    

Here are some pictures I clicked while making this scrap bag.  



Learning crochet these days so I thought why not try some...




I guess yarn and color give a nice look to gunny sack....



Here how it looks from inside...


some plastic beads from miss sunshine...color choice by her since she gave it to me.



And its done....Guess my rice sacks are not going anywhere now, all are going to get some kind makeover one by one :))


Have a wonderful weekend dear all and thanks for your wonderful comments.

Play-Dough Flowers


Hello dear friends....guess what... I am playing with Play-dough these days. I made these beauties yesterday using play-dough. I really loved the way these flowers turned out...its addicting actually, once I started it I can't stop myself. I am still thinking about how I am going to use these flowers in my project. They are still soft ....it will take some time to dry. Play-dough comes in variety of colors and new shade can be  made mixing two colors together.
 Hope you will enjoy the flower shower as you
 scroll down. Have a great week ahead!

Blue Purse

Hello there.....how is your summer going so far. I am really enjoying gardening these days, I planted some flowers in my garden and now they are blooming. It is a real pleasure to see budding beauties around you. This week, I tried to finish this small purse and finally its done. I got a pack of felt sheets from a store with lovely bright to make felt flowers with them. I turned one blue felt sheet into a purse and embroidered a little design on the front side and soon will be working on the next one. I will be sharing that project with you too.







See you next week and have a happy weekend.
