I have been getting a lot of encouragement on my calligraphy works on social media and ever since then, my blog and crafting has taken a backseat! I do not know if my blog readers are interested in calligraphy but I thought why not share a little bit about my calligraphy journey, now that I have reached a serious milestone as well ( more on that below ). So to be frank I started my calligraphy journey in 2014 end when I decided I was going to take part in lettering challenges and improve my handwriting. As with any other challenge, I went on for a week max and I gave up. I decided I wasnt good enough and that I needed to add some professional supplies! Here is a look on few of my older calligraphy attempts and seeing them, I literally burst out laughing!

So as usual I sit down late night after my daughter has slept to put up yet another tutorial post. And I was left wondering if anybody is even reading these posts. If anybody is looking out for the next tutorial or post from thecraftyangels? I have no idea who are my readers although I know there is ample number of visitors but who are you guys? Do drop in a “hi” if you are a regular here 🙂 Coming to the post, remember the DIY Monogram tutorial I did last week ? Today’s post like the last one used a burlap canvas board as a base and you can purchase them from Itsybitsy. I decided to throw away my old key holder which had worn out completely and was definitely not the first thing I wanted anyone to notice as they entered my home. So I made this really pretty entryway DIY key holder and I am sure you would it love it 🙂

I have become so lazy about crafting and blogging no doubt. To be quite frank I have no idea whats eating up all my time but, I have no time to blog 😛 Maybe its the office work that leaves my brain twisted and devoid of creativity when I reach back or its the messy home that need a little long term overhaul but either ways, I promise that I wont be totally hibernating! Today’s post is on how I made these simple DIY monogram wall art that I am planning to put up in my daughters nursery ( yeah I need to change the monogram from M to G!). I love all the pretty nursery decor ideas ruling pinterest but to be frank, I don’t know where to get all the supplies in India. I know how unpleasant it is when you have all the energy and creativity to make something but you have absolutely no clue as to where from to source the supplies! I have multiple sources and mostly online but I guess I buy things just because I like them and I happen to use them long long later! Okay no blaberrings – straight to the tutorial.
