Hello guys, I am back from my long hiatus but the universe seems to be telling me to be lazier than ever before. Right when I decide that I am going back to blogging, my SD card adaptor stops working and I can’t transfer my photos, my internet goes down and I have absolutely no connectivity ! But I am going to fight against all the odds and publish this post at any cost 😛 Diwali is round the corner and its time to start preparing our homes with all the festive decors. I love adding DIY touch to every decor element if you know me well and so here goes a tutorial for an easy DIY paper lantern for diwali aka Aakash kandil. If you have seen my last years post for diwali, you would remember seeing a similar paper lantern but the tutorial was on thekeybunch blog – go check that out.

Hey guys!!
Stepping aside from my usual crafty tutorial posts, today I thought why not have a small talk with you 🙂 I have been crafting regularly sort of regularly for like 3 years now, ever since I started this blog. Or rather I should say that my blog & readers have kept me motivated to keep crafting ever since I started off! I often get asked by my friends on how I find time to do all these things after office and home. And this post is just an answer to that. ( please ignore the bad quality photos, they were not supposed to see daylight :P)

Before you read this, I think you should read this – I finally got around updating the “about me” page here and I am sure you would love to know more about me 😉

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.

Hello guys! How are you? I really miss blogging and crafting like before – the before as in simple crafts, crafts that could be added as decor element to homes. But never mind I think I am getting back on track 😀 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 kids 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 🙂
