Swap and Diary

A picture heavy Post :)

Recently I participated in the Swap by Central Swap India
And this is what I made....
Diary, Friendship bracelet and note cards.....
Though I didn't understand the meaning of note cards and I made a small note book or booklet...so i made the cards later and sent again :)

This is the first time I participated in such type of event...It was confusing , creative, fun , fun and more fun




This is a slot to insert a photo...



Here I made another slot to insert note cards/ note booklet which I made










At the last minute I changed my mind and changed the booklet from the above one to this one...




And these are the note cards I made for the Swap...




Since my partner was Asmita, I made this Quillography  card ... letter 'a'













I will be posting about what I received in the next post....

This and that....

Recently I did a bit ....no more than a bit of Shopping .....
It was not done in a day or two....but in the past six months or so....

I brought all these goodies from Kukies Basket....
Kukies Basket is the newest online shop and the owner Devika sent me these.....
Doilies, Paper mat , quilling strips, paper crimper and paper and more paper...



My hubby had been to Bangalore recently... and believe it or not he bought me lots, lots and lots of handmade paper and a few punches, glitter and yes more paper

Not all these punches were not brought by hubby dear ... 
I brought 4 punches from A1 Craft Supply
I brought my first quilling tool and some other things from Neha of A1 Craft Supply too....




And this one is really special... It is a wood burning tool...My best friend brought this for me from the US
But I am guilty of not using it until now :(
Am hoping to use it soon...
He also brought me the X-Acto knife and other things beside a lovely bag....Hmmmmm


Some other things that I brought for myself and guilty of not using them until now.....



My most recent and priced procession...
Paper Shredder..... :)


Apart from all these things I have brought a lot of other painting supplies like paints, brushes and papers, books and easel and many more things which have burned a hole in my... no no my hubby's pocket ;) especially the easel....

What about you..... Have you done any shopping and what is your wish list?
I have a very small wish list....
... I do not have any stamps and distress inks ....So I want those....
I want more paper,
A sewing machine,
Beads and buttons,
Some more paper,
Ribbons,
Paper Trimmer,
And some more paper,
Punches,
Score Board,
Some more paper....and...
Ok...my wish list is not particularly small.....I will stop for now....... and instead of typing, I will just think about it..........

Recycling and Summer Camp!!!




In this May I had taken a few classes for kids and ladies in the Summer Camp organised by a local Club..
I know I am too late to post these...Is been more than 3 months :D But anyway I wanted to share them....
The classes I had conducted were mostly about Recycling and Quilling ...
 I couldnt take many pics since I was busy with classes and a few others I accidentally deleted :( ..... These are the few pics that I managed to take

Jewelery Box

Recently I saw a tutorial on Pritesh's blog about box making and I loved it.... Though I have tried a few methods of box making I loved this one very much for its simplicity.... 
Here in Guntur we do not have many options when it come to shopping for craft items ....and even if you find something its too costly .... Like the handmade paper costs anything between 60 bucks to 100 per sheet... :(
So when my hubby went to Bangalore recently, he brought a lot of hand made papers......

And Here is what I made from that paper....
And everybody who has seen these boxes have loved them :)
Am soo happy.... :)
I used a few kundans that I had purchased when I learnt embroidory...
And of course quilling ......










And I am linking these to a few blog challenges...

Clay .....


My daughter loves making things using clay and here are some of the art work that she has done recently...
Though now clay has been banned in the house since she has eczema and it has increased alarmingly since one month.... I am hoping everything will become fine and once again she will start playing and creating beautiful things from clay....








This one is my personal favorite because after I taught her to make those rosettes , she made the whole thing on her own....




We made these two together.... and enjoyed it a lot too....

Diary....


I am posting this one hoping that my friend has already received this one.... :)

I made this one for the Friendship day....


I have used a dried peepal leaf or rather the skeleton ( ;) ) of the peepal leaf.... and ribbons , thread, glitter and some more paper and stuff





This is the inner portion where I have left two pockets for her to insert two photos....






The Back pocket allows you to insert any slips or cards in it....





Hope she likes it ... :)
