Its Friendship Day!!!

Today is Friendship Day and I wanted to make something to mark the occasion.  Back in school and college, Friendship Day was all about making Friendship Bands for our BFFs but now as an adult, I can't help feeling a little silly to give my adult friends these sentimental strips of floss. In an effort to modernise the tradition, I decided to make cards for my friends with a twist! The twist? Incorporating friendship bands somewhere in the card. And here's what I made.For my first card, I wanted to Read more...

A Wedding Message Book – Part 2

About a week ago, I published a blog about a Wedding Message book I was doing for a couple that are soon to be married. The objective of the book is to provide a space for relatives, friends and loved ones of the betrothed to leave their best wishes on their married life. It will be kept on a convenient table during the reception providing an opportunity for any guest to drop a line, so it had to match the colour scheme of the event. In my last post which you can view here, I shared the cover of Read more...

A Wedding Message Book

Wondering what a Wedding Message Book is? Well this is the first for me too! A dear friend's brother is getting married next month and the new bride and groom wanted a book in which their friends and family could write little notes and wishes.

Celebrating 60 Glorious Years!

My grandparents recently celebrated 60 years of marriage. Isn't that an incredible achievement? My mother wanted very much to give them a keepsake to remember this occasion so she asked me to make a photo desk calendar. I was happy to oblige and got to work on the project. It's hard crafting to someone else's taste aesthetic. My mother doesn't like too much of embellishments. She's always prefers 'Clean and Simple' projects so as I was putting this whole calendar together I had to ensure that it Read more...
