Clip art

I stopped by a new store to buy some paper and glue and found these cute wooden cut outs in a box .  Am guessing these are used as charms in crafting jewellery , but I picked them up for some tic tac fun . Also , used a couple on a few paper clips and they look so adorable 🙂 IMG_0413IMG_0416image

Happy Easter

R tried something different this year and he’s done a pretty good job ! Last year was a little experiment with chocolate, this year has been extremely busy so he decided to do a quick fix ( wasn’t that quick though) .

Midnight mess in the kitchen , lots of cashews and stirring and a few marzipan chicks 🙂

Have a blessed day all !

Of childhood memories , cartoons and crayons

1995 Flashback

Those were super carefree days and cartoon network was a hot favourite . Flintstones , The Jetsons, Captain Planet , Scooby Doo and all those happy hours !

We would exchange stickers of the various cartoon characters in school and drawing each  of these was fun .

I remember some of us always carried our crayon boxes and would get busy when it was a ‘free period’ and the substitute teacher was kind enough to let us do whatever we pleased .It was a year of transition , shifting from afternoon school hours to early morning , from pencils to pens and from crayons to water colours.

 

I’d cut them once I reached home and stick them in a notebook. Found one of those books yesterday and it took me back to 1995 and fifth grade fun ! So many memories , so many smiles and nostalgia !

Sweetest surprise !

It’s special when someone takes over as party planner to make your day superspecial and looks into every little detail .  When the hub takes the trouble to send out handmade invites and even bakes and moulds fondant for the first time , he deserves a pat on the back !!!

Do not keep calm ….Christmas is coming !

Red , green , white , gold and glitter dominate my home already . No , the decorations are still waiting to get out of their boxes, but there’s paper , ribbons, gifts and envelopes all over. I have been warned not to open the craft boxes today and rest for a bit. That explains why I have time for a post 🙂

Sharing a few designs …hoep you like them !

For my  cousin brother who will spend his first Christmas away from home 😦

 

There’s something about receiving and sending out cards that makes me really happy. My dad used to post christmas cards for many years until he was really ill two years ago . From then on, I have tried to post a few cards every year , not as many as dad though.

Merry and Bright . Using the bits of paper I have .

 

The inspiration to send out handmade cards came about four years ago and all credit goes to my dearest friend M. Her hands create magic with the least amount of things and her cards are eagerly awaited.

Oh Christmas tree !

 

I finsihed a few cards and am ready to post the first batch . Am not sure when am going to sit down and do the rest. With carpenters and painters all over the place, it’s just so messy. There’e also a party for the family soon after Christmas and preparations are on in full swing , am done with a few thank you tags to go along with the party favors.

Thank you SNOW much  tags – ten down !

With about 42 presents still to wrap , a dozen or more cards to do , the props for our photbooth , the decorations for the party and the making of sweets which will take up the entire week before Chrismtas , am sure this is going to be one busy month . I can’t keep calm , christmas is coming !!!!
