Happy Birthday Wall Hanging!!

This year on Vikram’s Birthday I thought of making him a wall hanging Birthday card 🙂 When he woke up on his Birthday morning he saw it hanging on the living room wall, he loved it!! Btw, he loves to play tennis, especially with our son Ansh so there had to be a tennis racquet in it 🙂

Here are some pics of it.

A Very Very Happy Basant to you all!!

Happy Holi!!

The festival of colors has arrived!! 🙂 The preparations for Holi are going on everywhere with full enthusiasm, energy and joy. For this year’s Holi decorations, I made these colorful flowers to be decorated in the New Jersey Satsang hall. These are very simple to make flowers made out of construction paper. I have also made a tutorial of making these flowers just with photographs. Check it out!!

A little bit of organizing

I thought of organizing my home a little bit last week, so I gathered all the waste material I had and used it as an opportunity to do some craft work with my son. We made these receipt/coupon holders out of cereal boxes, made some treat holders out of Preserves’ bottles, craft supplies box out of a shoe box, re used the old carton to organize crayons and markers, and decorated an old white box in which Ansh fondly keeps his small cars.

Ice cream stick craft

Everyone loves the cool days of summer….but hot days can be made cool too….all we need is a popsicle 🙂 This summer I had my freezer full of popsicles, the temperature of NJ had been 106  for so many days in a row that surviving without popsicles seemed impossible for Ansh. We collected the ice cream sticks and had a box full of it by the end of the month of July. So last weekend when we wanted to do a craft together they came out very handy. Ansh very sincerely helped by applying the glue on the ice cream sticks while I joined them and held them together tightly.

We made this and presented it to Vikram as we always do (we are in a habit of dedicating the smallest thing we make :)). He loved it and had so many nice words to say about it.

White is bright!

This is the first wall craft that I made soon after coming to US. I did not have much of craft material here back then, in fact nothing except markers and glitter 🙂  so this one is made just out of that.

Swinging Hearts

I made this swinging Hearts wall craft three years back for Vikram on Valentines Day. He loved it and he doesn’t let me throw it even now (when some of its colors have faded) and it still swings proudly in our bed room 🙂
