Sorry for my abrupt absence from the blogging world. In fact from crafting too. Now I understand the meaning of the question ” How do you manage time for all these despite office” raised by many, whenever I meet them. I realise that the transient period to settle down to a new routine might not be as quick as I thought it would be. But we all have our own priorities right? For now, I have decided to spend more time with my daughter for her school works and after school learnings (expect more kids crafts) while not totally abandoning my blog. Coming to today’s tutorial its a much searched for work- our own Indian Tanjore Painting, sponsored by Hobby Ideas.

But never mind I think I am getting back on track ๐Ÿ˜€ Well most of you must know that I have a 3 year old daughter – Grace and she is going to go to school – from tomorrow!! Cant believe she has grown so much! We in India, we don’t have a separate room generally for the kidsย to play like the nursery rooms maintained in homes abroad. I have tried a lot to get her to play in a separate room so that my living room is devoid of the huge mess when I get back from office but when you are an office going mom, I guess you have to sacrifice somethings right? But anyways I thought maybe its because she doesn’t find her room pretty enough. So we went to solve the problem and here we are – with a pretty DIY rainbow nursery wall decor with old cardboards ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
