Wreaths


Wishing everyone a very Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!  



I made these cute wreath for gift giving ....little handmade gift to show my appreciation for my kids teacher.
these turned out nice and festive. 

                 

                                For wreaths I have used styrofoam circles, ribbons, felt flowers, and cut some sprigs that I got from local dollar tree and yarn....                                






So have fun friends...enjoy your holiday!

Up cycled Baking Dish

 Hello Dear Friends....hope you all are well. I am blogging after a long gap. From last month I was totally away from creative work. Truth is its hard to get time  for creative work sometimes because lots of other things depend on you. I guess what I need is good time management. Hope I will be regular in my future postings.

Today I am sharing a quick up cycle project for you. I recently saw an idea of using old baking dishes for organizing purpose on Martha Stewart's website. I covered my unusable baking dish with a green printed duct tape.    




Its looking nice and printed duct tapes come in different designs and colors. Its a deep dish that can be used on counter for keeping mails, keys also. Hope it will inspire you to up cycle something .

Jewelry making in July







Its first day of July, I wonder how swiftly the time passes. With kids at home all the time it seems to fly in a blink. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Me and my daughter had fun going to a craft store and picking up some craft items which we are going to show here. I picked more jewelry related items...I never thought of making it before ...but I got interested in it when my daughter picked a mixed bead box last summer....now I am making few pieces for myself. Remember this post where I have used wooden beads on a sandal...I made these two pieces of jewelry pieces using the left over beads and adding some metallic ones.....I guess they will look good with my Indian dresses. I love the green one...looks so fresh....








Have a wonderful week friends.
