A tutorial for DIY paper lantern for Diwali with free printable design template as well. Redefine your festive Diwali decor with these DIY aakash kandils 🙂
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. But the idea remains the same, design is a bit different so basically you can improvise on the colors and patterns as you like 🙂
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)

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.

Been such a long time right? I knoweven I really missed blogging. I did tell you right that Grace has started going to Pre-KG? Our lives are so messed up right now because I have to now wake up early to get her ready for school which means no midnight craftings 😛 So now you know what I have been upto! Hardly any crafting but loads of calligraphy as it takes just 30 minuted every evening. Are you interested in calligraphy? I would love to give insights on everything I know so far about calligraphy. Well coming to todays post, a little calligraphy is involved but a really easy one. All you need is a canvas, a little acrylic paint and selected quote to make these simple Handlettered Canvas quote wall panels.
Make this super simple and pretty DIY rainbow nursery wall decor with old cardboards and adorn your baby’s nursery. A great summer activity for kids too!
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 🙂
A short story on my calligraphy journey – from where I started to where I have reached. And also a big reveal on my calligraphy milestone too 😉 Sit back and enjoy all my old calligraphy attempts like me and have a good laugh 😛
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!
