Places to visit in Pondicherry with kids, pondicherry places to visit, places to visit in pondicherry, pondicherry review, best hotel to stay in pondicherry, must buy things in pondy, pondy places to visit

So guys who follow me on Instagram would know how we had a very small vacation of 3 days to pondicherry and velankanni when during this ganesh chathurthi (September 2017). We want to travel a lot and see new places but unfortunately my job gives so much money but no vacation or not even 4 days leave together! Thats so bad πŸ™ But anyways we kind of make it a point to travel once in a year and that is mostly somewhere around our wedding anniversary that falls on August 28th. Jose loves driving so he kind of picks up all these places in the south of India but I dislike car journey only because atleast two days of our precious holiday is wasted sitting in car and munching on a dozen of Lays pack πŸ˜› but anyways hopefully we will get exhausted of all spots in south soon and we will have no choice but to go longer distances ( Hee hee ).

Note : I swear I started drafting this post in October of 2017 and it took me 8 months to get it uploaded – talk about being lazy!

The previous post outlined the general styles of cardmaking and introduction to supplies; this post will cover what to invest on when you are trying cardmaking for the first time πŸ™‚

I have been into making cards for probably the last 3 years now and its actually a funny story as to how I ended up starting this cardmaking journey! I was gifted this pretty little stamp from paper smooches & penny black by one kind and generous crafter and till then I had no supplies to work with it. My journey began trying to buy supplies to use those 2 stamps and you know what? After 3 years my confusion on how to choose stamps inks papers has never stopped and now I have this enormous supplies for cardmaking, half of which were purchased out of impulse and the rest few which were a huge mistake! I had hardly anybody to guide me back then so I am here to share my little knowledge on buying the right few supplies to get you started with cardmaking – especially in India.

Christmas is supposedly a very expensive season although everything you find is on sale. I generally purchase Christmas decor right after Christmas because that is when I reach home after my vacation and before that, I hardly get anything Christmassy in the market! So over the couple of years that we have made our home, I have collected loads of tree decoration items and I think my tree can’t withstand any more of the load πŸ˜› This year, since my daughter has also grown up, we thought we should move more towards the religious side of the celebration instead of keeping it all Santa & Christmas trees. We call Christmas the Advent Season, running through 4 Sundays and culminates with Christmas that falls on the 25th of December. The advent candles, 4 of them, held within an advent wreath, is lit one by one every Sunday to remember and represent hope, peace, joy and love respectively. The tradition was started long back in Germany as a countdown to Christmas but later on has added so much value and tradition that it is an inevitable part of the celebration.
