Weekends are awesome

Love the weekends. Saw the movie – ‘Beautiful Creatures’ today. It was a good movie but it could have been better. The concept was good so I am wondering if I should read the novel it was based on. Hmm…

After the movie, went to a Arts n Crafts Exhibition, sort of like Music-food-crafts festival, called the Madras Market. It is pretty amazing how many talented people are out there..

And then, I finally got a chance to use my new Floral Punch.. And here’s what I came up with..

What do you guys think?

July Cards

This post is really late as you can make out from the title. Well I guess I got really busy last month and couldn’t make any posts here.

So here’s a post with assorted pics. I have only four in here right now. A few have already been sent across to the people they were made for. I wish, of course, that I had clicked a few pics of all of them. And above all that, had a minor mishap with my phone and lost all my pics when I restored phone to factory settings 🙁

Will make do with the ones I have left for now.

All the cards in these images are blank cards with no written words inside. So here they are :

Bracelet DIY (Satin Ribbon teamed with Copper Wire)

Hi Y’all,

So yesterday night, I was all bummed out for no apparent reason. You know how that happens sometimes- when you have had a bad day and you feel everyone is out to get you and that all bad things only happen to you and so on. Well, I’ve had one such really terrible week and have had some real trouble sleeping.

So I made this bracelet last night, to keep all the dark thoughts at bay. Concentrating on crafting really helps with calming me down and sort of fills your heart with a blank sort of peace.

Anyway here is the photo.

Here are some other views of the bracelet along with some close up shots.

I hope you guys like it. Would love to hear any comments or criticisms.

Cheers.

Ribbon Weaving for Handmade Card

So here’s the work of an amateur card maker.

Handmade Card - Rainbow Colors

I know the card doesn’t have a whole lot except the whole ribbon-woven portion. But then, there are so many colors in there, that adding anything else in the card, would have made it look really tacky.

I was really confused for a while, wondering where to add the word – ‘Best Wishes’.

So the lesson learnt here is that, next time, I will do the ribbon weaving for a smaller area 😛

I decided to use satin ribbons for this handmade card because of my ever growing stash. I normally use my ribbons for jewellery making, but I have used it here for a change.

Below, you can see the whole process of how I did the ribbon weaving portion for the card.

Here’s a closer look at the hand-written sentiment and the flower.

White Satin Ribbon Bracelet

Hi Ya’ll,

It is just very recently that I have come across many paper crafters and handmade jewelry hobbyists online. And I have discovered that connecting through blogs is a much more cooler way to socialize with like-minded people than on facebook and other sites.

Although I have never posted much of  my craft work on my personal blog before, I am starting today 🙂

This handmade bracelet was made using White Satin Ribbon, White Beads, German Silver Spiral and Heart Charms.

White Ribbon Bracelet With Silver Charms

This Jewelry piece is my entry to the Itsy Bitsy Pristine Sparkle Challenge.

Itsy Bitsy Pristine Sparkle Challenge- White and Silver (Submission for Jewelry- Making Category)

 

I hope I am doing this right.

Comments and Criticisms welcome 🙂 Looking forward to making loads of new friends.

Oh and sorry about the shiny bright pic. Clicked the pic using my Lumia phone and the auto settings have made it look all glowy.

Feedly OR Blogger

I have recently decided to start socializing in the blogosphere with more crafters and handmade jewellery hobbyists. And I have realized that it is sort of difficult for people like me with self-hosted blogs to follow blogs on Blogger. I mean it is mandatory for a person to have a blogger profile to be able to follow another blog hosted on Blogger. For now, I have added quite a few blogs to my blogger reading list.
But I think I will be switching to Feedly. The options are far better on Feedly. And with the Google Chrome add-on option, I can just use the Feedly mini-icon to add any blog to my reading list.

Note(adding this note on 28th may, 2013) : I just noticed that if you add blogs using blogger, they automatically get added to your feedly reading list.. So yay! for me 😀

 

Pretty in Pink

I have been postponing this entry for quite some time. I wanted to click a better picture of this product with proper lighting and background. But I guess i will never really find time to do it. So i am posting it as it is for now. Clicked this photo using my Nokia Lumia 920.

Pink Ribbon Bracelet

Supplies used: Pink Satin Ribbon, White beads, White rose charm, German silver spiral charms, clasp and chain

New Blog Theme and Color Scheme :)

So, I have changed my blog theme and  made it all PINK! I have never really been much a pink fan.. But this makes my blog look sooo cute.. Sigh!!

So this color theme stays till I am sick of it… In fact, in my next post, I am going to share one of the satin bracelets I made.. And you can surely guess the color … 😛 Yes it is pink..
