Hello everyone, I am Anamika Sarkar currently living in Delhi. Although I have been into the teaching profession for almost 20 years, but my passion has always been arts. Being married to a defense officer, I could never indulge in my creative ventures wholeheartedly, but would always keep exploring and learning. Few years back, I decided to quit my job and started exploring my creative side. Today I am a passionate crafter, enjoying my time and exploring my creative side to the fullest! Decoupage is my forte but I also love to try out other art and craft forms. I am thrilled to be a part of the Itsy Bitsy Design Team and am looking forward to having a great time here.

Crafting is my passion that constantly challenges my creative limits.
