Upcycled Frame

Hello Peeps,

Too many things happening all at once. New life, new people, new relations and some adjustments. Amidst all these new things I stand trying to keep up with the fast moving pace. Living a paradoxical life, with hailing from a small town and moving to a metro, takes its toll. The change though is sweet, but I rarely end up with time to craft, which at times leaves me in melancholy.

Anyways, one Sunday when actually I had no work to do and no outings to go to, I ended up revamping a broken frame gifted to me on my wedding. It was a wooden frame covered with glass, but all the glass had broken. I took it up and made a collage of a recent Mahabaleshwar trip we had gone to.

Do let me know how you find it. I love reading your opinions.

Wedding Explosion Box Card


Its been long I have said Hi in the blogland..! But with my marriage preps going around, I hardly found time to switch on my lappy.. Getting married is the most wonderful feeling in the world :) For being loved much more than loving someone brightens up your life with beautiful colours.. And thats what exactly i feel these days :)

I had my friends and cousins buzzing around in my ears as to what post marital gift i should give my husband. Being a craft lover, i ignored all those advises and created a handmade card for him :)

Since valentines was around , i thought of making something in red in white... with tinges of pink..!

On the sides you can see i have used 

My friend just recently returned from US. I ordered alot of MS punches. And the poor soul dutifully got my complete order, inspite of facing custom issues. God bless him!!

Here is the 2 tier cake square cake that i place in between. I thought of leaving the circular cake and try a square one for change!!

Throughout the card I have extensively used my MS punches. I guess I was like a baby, cherishing my new purchases :)  I added some of our pics that were clicked during our pre wedding shoot.

Do leave back your comments. They mean alot..!

Handmade Birthday Frame

Hello All,

With the wedding date nearing, my days are spent in shopping and trials :) I have been surrounded with colours, designs, embroideries, meena work,etc. As a result, I hardly sum up time to craft :(

Anyways, both my mother-in-law and father-in-law, have their birthdays just a day apart. I had been scratching my head as to what should I gift them. Since they are aware that I love to craft, they would not accept any market gifts from me :) Finally I came up with the idea of making a frame for them.

Often after a certain age, a couples' lives revolve around their children. The love they share, their likes dislikes, the romance in their relation takes a backseat and the needs of children take priority. I wanted to gift them something that would make them feel good about themselves and generate those sparks again :)  Haha.. call it being naughty :P

So this is the frame i came up with. With winters/fall stepping in, I have used some fall colours. What i love best about fall is the how the colours of leaves change and take a brown/orange look!

I added some lovely pics of them together and wrote a poem in gujarati for them.

A close up of the poem. The poem states that,

Their love and care has made this house a home,
Their teaching have brought success in lives of their children
I pray Almighty to fulfill all their wishes!!

This flower was made using Juhi's Tutorial

This is how it looked after framing it up. Its a wonder how handmade articles refresh memories and bring happiness. My In laws loved it and have put it up on their wall !!

Do give me your comments. :)
