2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

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!!

Festive Winter Cards

I had been very busy lately so I couldn’t add any new post, but now my exams are done and I am a bit relieved, hmmm…at least for a couple of weeks! So last weekend I spent quite some time preparing cards. Also, Ansh and I spent time making cookies, he had been telling me to prepare ginger bread man cookies from quite a while so we finally made them. I am amazed at how much interest he shows in kitchen at this age.

Picture of cookies is at the end of this post 🙂

Shoe box Library

Shoebox Library:

My son Ansh who just joined Kindergarten last month had been bringing these little books from school which he made himself in class. These were number books, alphabet books, coloring books etc. Kids cut out the sheet themselves and organized the pieces in order and the teacher stapled them together to form a book…this was such a cute idea!!

The teacher also told the kids to make shoe box library at home with mommy to keep the books together. So Ansh and I decided to create our own shoe box library. Luckily I had an almost brand new brown colored shoe box in my craft store. So here is what we came up with…
