Travel Tissue Case or Holder or Cozy...


I just whipped up a couple of travel tissue cases the other day. I added Ribbon Work Embroidery on one of them and a brocade edge to the other one.

I couriered the package to my first customer at Etsy on Saturday and I added one of these tissue holders to the package, just a little surprise gift, as a token of appreciation. Hope she likes it.

I am planning to add more of these to my Etsy shop.

Bags for Miss A’s Class.


Miss A has been sick with Pneumonia. I have been busy for the past two weeks making bags for Miss A’s class and running around the hospital. She is much better now, just has cough, which the doctor said will go in about 2 to 3 weeks.

There are 14 boys and 6 girls in her class and so I made the bags in two colors. The red ones are for girls and the green are for boys.




I used ‘print and press’ iron-on transfers for the labels, to make it easier for the kids to identify their bags.

Her teacher wanted parents to give some paper bags for carrying craft items and library books at school. So I decided to make fabric bags instead and gift it to all the kids.

I handed over the bags to the teacher today and the kids will be getting them tomorrow.

Hope the kids like them. :)

Getting ready for winter..

When I don't drive, I generally knit. :)

As of now, I only know to knit a scarf. I did make some sweaters and socks when I was a kid but I don't remember it anymore.

I think I will have to add it to my “things to learn” list.







Special Credit: My kiddo for sharing her toy. :)

I painted a Picasso

I made a copy of Picasso's painting from his Seated woman series. :)

It is called a Two-faced woman.

The painting fits under the patterns of curvilinear Cubism, a style that was developed by Picasso along with Georges Braque using monochrome brownish and neutral colors.

This painting represents a terror filled face and its shadow. The front face of the woman disappears into shadow. We see only her anxious inner profile implies the contours of the more darkened area. The terror in the face is expressed by the shrunken right eye - a tiny point as compared to the circle of the left one that stares from the shadows and by her recessive mouth and chin.

The Picture below is the original Picasso.




The pictures below are my paintings. Picasso's is Oil on Canvas and mine is Acrylic on Canvas.



All this while I was mostly into Charcoal and Pastels, this is my first attempt of acrylic on canvas.
So my fellow bloggers do leave some comments about your opinion on my painting. I would really love that. :)

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween. Hope you guys had loads of fun today.

It was a wonderful day for us too. Miss A had a Halloween Parade at school and in the evening, she went for trick or treat to the safe street in our neighborhood. She was dressed as an Angel.

It was so much fun to see all the decorated houses. I had a great time.

By the way I did manage to carve the small little wobbly pumpkin, and Miss A loves took the pictures of the pumpkin while I was cleaning up.

Here are a few pictures that I would love to share.











Here is the pumpkin I carved. well, sorry, there was no space for nose. I think I carved the eyes a little too big, it somehow looks like an Alien Pumpkin. :)

Pumpkin Patch Field Trip

Miss A went on a field trip to Pumpkin Patch a couple of days ago.



She bought home a small wobbly pumpkin. She said "Mommy I like this pumpkin because it's small and very light to carry, can you please carve this for me for Halloween?". Well, I really wondered how I could carve such a small one, but then I agreed.
