The Butterfly Award

It always feels nice to be appreciated. Punam of Dreamz Forever has given me the Butterfly Award. Thanks a lot Punam for this award.

Glitter Painting

Using glitter and glue, this painting comes out really well... and its easy to do.

Items Needed:

Glitter Powder
White Glue or Fevicol
Paint Brush


1.Sketch the outline of your design on the black cloth, preferably felt, but anything will do.

Mix 2 parts white glue with 1/2 part water to bring the thick glue to a cream consistency.

3.With the help of paint brush, apply the glue on parts of the design where u want to sprinkle glitter powder. Do it one color at a time. For example, if u r doing blue, first apply glue to only those areas which are to be blue.

4.Sprinkle a good amount of glitter powder over the glue generously and pat gently with finger. Don't worry about the glitter creating a mess over the cloth.... after it dries in about 6 hours, you can hold the cloth vertically over a newspaper and collect the excess glitter for reuse.

5.Repeat steps 3 & 4 with the next colour, and the next, until the whole painting is done.

Rockin' Girl Blogger Award

I would like to thank Yasmin of "Hooks And Laces" who has given me this award. Thank you so much for the award and I am really touched.

Yasmin, your comments have always encouraged me a lot. I hope our friendship continues to grow.

Now since its been only a few months since I started my blog, I have only a few blogger friends. So I am giving this award to only 2 bloggers:

1. Shobha ji. Her blog has the most delicious home recipes you will never find anywhere else. Her method of explaining the recipes with step-by-step pics makes it easy for even the non-cooks to cook a delicious meal. She is not only a good cook but also a very good human being. You will always find her helping others, doing things for others or buying gifts for others. This quality of hers made me give this award to her. She deserves it more than anyone else.

2. Punam who has got a wonderful blog about almost everything... poetry, inspiratiion, birds, relationships, philosophy, cooking and many more. She is one of the most creative people ever. A great writer and a perfectionist. Your poems really rock!. So this award is for you, Punam.

An award for me !!!!!

Beaded Rose

This is just a simple crocheted rose. I've added beads around the last row of petals and a sequin in the center and a ribbon to wear it as an accessory.
