The Indian festive season has been wrapped up for this year but I can keep posting my tutorials forever 😛 We had a quick and unplanned vacation to Kerala for Diwali, so all the posts I made ready were left in the pipeline as I holidayed! This will be the last in the series of Diwali/Indian festive decor ideas before I wrap them up to give way for Christmas crafts 🙂 Presenting to you DIY faux paper marigold flowers tutorial! Marigold flower or Genda phool ( in hindi) or samanthi ( known in south India) is an inseparable part of pooja thaalis and festive decors. The flower has a very strong smell that screams festival and that cannot be replicated 😛 but the flower for sure can be.

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 🙂

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.

I have rather had a rough and tight week this month and honestly although I did craft and spend time teaching myself to watercolor, I was so lazy to open this blog! And finally here I am, with a promise to update you guys with all the pending posts at the earliest 🙂 I have always been fascinated by these DIY floating wall shelves tutorials but then here in India we don’t DIY so much so I was refraining myself from trying them. But then again I found these easy alternative to using wooden palette for the shelves and don’t you think they turned out pretty? Only con – you cant put more load on them just in case they crash down!
