Creative rambling

It's been a while since I did some creative rambling on this let me share with you, what has kept my hands busy in the past month or are some in-progress projects and crafts. 

 Inspired by Kanika's bird hangings... I used a blue kurti that I wore on Holi last year, another old one that was put to use earlier as well; and made a bird and a heart....I plan to make a few more of these and then hang them in a group:)

One missed afternoon nap (for my son...) and this is how I amused him.... by painting this rock owl, inspiration found here

It's been a long time since I held my brushes, wanted to do another Ganesha painting. Here is a sketch of what I'll be painting soon....

And finally, a set of coasters made with IKEA paper napkins, tiles and some mod podge. My sister and I did this quick project while I was visiting her.

If you haven't already, check out these coasters at Sarmistha's blog.....she did a great job!

Have a good week!
