Easy Crafting

 hello friends...so spring has finally arrived but its really unspring like here. I just came back after dropping my son to school and its Sooo cold outside. I am really waiting for mild sunny weather,  hope it will bless us soon. Time is really flying fast I don't know where my days are going. March is going to end in five days, it went so swiftly. I am so looking forward to this Summer...I am going to India for my summer vacation YIPEE. I am going to see my parents after three years.I am really excited about it... Ok now, coming back to the project now that I am sharing today. These are real easy one, this brown shredded paper came in the box as a protection cover with our online order. I really like the color so I turned it into a small wreath like thing...now it hangs on my closet door..I am brushing my crocheting skill these days (will share my new crochet project in next post) so I ended up adding crochet flower to it.

This cute letter monogram made by my daughter....it is easy to make and is good fun project with kids. She is used beads and puffy paint to decorate. I painted the base with light blue acrylic paint with dark blue shading in between. Hope you will like these two easy peasy project. Have a good day!

Painted Wooden Frames


 Hello Friends...looks like spring is here in North Carolina. We are blessed with lovely sunshine today.Clear sky, bright sunlight and warm 70 degree day,a perfect start for this week.Yesterday, while cleaning my closet, I found these wooden frames I got some time ago for my kids to paint. In fact, my son even doodled one of them with  the markers. But we never finished it. I thought why not paint them. I painted the base with the dark colors, added little black paint in red and green.I decided to paint white flowers as it is a good contrast to all. It was looking little plain after I finished the designs so added polka dots to it. I guess, they look nice together. Let me know what do you think!
 


See you soon.

Hearty Meal

Hello friends ..I am writing my first post of March, can't believe how quickly February passed. Weather is cold and dry here. Hopefully, March will bring some comfort from this dreary weather. I noticed some daffodils blossoming in my neighborhood today. So I hope, Spring will arrive soon. When weather is cold, I turned to more hearty and warming dishes and preferably one pot meal. That 's what I am cooking more these days.  Hearty and healthy, I like making Dalia Pulav (Broken Wheat)  with lots of veggies. I prefer to add apple too with veggies for crunch. Here is the link to the video that you can see, hope you will like it.
