About Me

My dad once said, “Aren’t cards and crafts supposed to be made out of waste stuff? If you want to be creative, design something with the things that you already have, things that you don’t use anymore, things lying around the house getting wasted and………” Hmmmmm….he truly believed in recycling. After close to two decades of this instance when I was a kid bugging him to get fancy craft supplies for making New Year cards, I have come to believe that he was right. There is indeed so much joy in creating (and using) something out of bits and pieces that we would have otherwise thrown. So as you would have guessed that since that day I had been making my own cards and my mom who  is  incredibly talented and super crafty was always there to help. My little brother (who never forgot to sign his name along with mine 🙂 while we sent those cards to our friends and family)  too cheered me up in every way he could.

I am Saumya and through this blog I want to share with you the cards and decorations that I have managed to create with not so long list of supplies. I don’t use (or have!) many fancy craft tools for making my cards. Recycling believer as I have become, I always try to save every knickknack of anything pretty I get to lay my hands on and use it in my cards here and there.

My husband Vikram and my cute “big boy” Ansh love whatever I make and encourage me in every possible way but don’t like when I spend too much time in my workshop “and forget them” 🙂 My four-year old too has made lots of cute cards which I will be sharing soon 🙂

    Amazing!!!.. I feel so short of words to describe my joy and excitement after seeing these cards.
    Though I have always seen you with your pair of scissors, colorful chart papers, old cards and the zeal to create something pretty out of it (and believe me it used to come out even prettier than what we had imagined), I still can’t believe the collection of cards that I just saw. It is The Most Beautiful collection of hand made cards and I am really very happy to have some of these in my collection as well :). Thanks to my remarkably crafty and amazingly talented sister..

    Awesome job, Saumya! Great pictures and website too. I always knew that you are very creative and have seen it first hand in your work for satsang. Wonder why you didn’t share this website earlier! 🙂 Keep it up and perhaps you can start a side-business of your own with this hobby you have – I’ll be your first customer! 🙂

    U are super creative Saumya. You should open a craft class/workshop and inspire little kids with your art. Great work by a really nice, genuine person.
    Wish you all the best.
    Love and Radhasoami,
    Shradha.
