Quilled Card..

June 24, 2014

Football fever is catching up with people everywhere now that the world cup is in full flow. I remember during school days, me and my brother used to keep alarm and wake up at late night to watch the world cup matches. It was so much fun to watch along with my brother and we often end up betting on the opposite teams :)

Made this quilled card months ago and like the way it turned out.. my quilling kit has been long neglected after coming here and hoping to do some quilling soon..

also did some sketching...

Wanna share this lovely quote before leaving...

Have a lovely week everyone!

lucky stars

Jar of wishes!

June 13, 2014

Hello lovelies! hope you are having a good day :) This week i put my crochet projects on hold as i was in a mood to try something different.. while looking for some simple paper crafts, i stumbled upon this origami lucky star tutorial and just looking at them made me want to try it. It's pretty easy to make once you get the hang of it and quite addictive as well.. 

Lucky stars are said to bring good luck and blessings to the person you gift.. you can also fill them in glass jars and it will look lovely on your living room.. there are many colorful paper strips available to make these stars.. i made these from paper strips cut out from color sheets.

You can write some wishes, thoughts or quotes inside these paper strips.. write some things or lists to do in your life and try fulfilling the things given in the star when you open it and see how many you've achieved  in a year. 

Handmade gifts are always way more special as it's made with love to the person you give. I'm going to  make some of these to give them to my friends (in small bottles, maybe). 

Have a fun filled weekend!


Amigurumi doll..

June 03, 2014

Making amigurumi is one of my favorite thing to do, but I've refrained from making girl doll since it looked complicated and fearing that attaching hair to the doll would be hard. After looking at some lovely amigurumi dolls in the net, i really wanted to make one for myself. Then I found a good doll pattern in AmigurmiBB's blog and decided to try it.

Here's my little amigurumi doll.. do you like her??

Attached the doll's hair using Jennyandteddy craft blog tutorial

Now she's permanently settled in my bed post to give me company :)

Another month has passed and a new month has started. May this June brings you all joy, peace and wonderful moments. Happy day everyone!
