Winter glitter

One of the best things I indulged in during my vacation was jewelry creation. A couple simple findings (the ones shown below) teamed up with beads gave flow to my creative juices. Here are pix for you… :)

Findings

First came two different earrings of same set of green+orange beads:

Earrings - 1 Earrings-2

I visited two of my nieces – fun-loving teenagers, during my visit to Gujarat. These are the bracelets I prepared for them as my personal gift.

I was carrying a lovely pink dress along on my trip, so this was the pair to go along with it:

Ms. Diya wanted her own pair of “aa-ha”, so put together these for my little one:

Hmmm… What a great way to spend time… :)

Hope you liked these as much as I enjoyed making them…

p.s. There are two more which I need to photograph and post here. May be tomorrow…? Keep watching this space for more…

Happy working!

I am back …

So, I have been absent from the e-world lately. Friends have been receiving “Out-of-office” mails in reply to their forwards. No new posts on my blogs. Well, I have been “vacationing”. :)

I had been feeling quite drained, tired and all such things. My husband and daughter had been complaining of not getting enough of “me-time”. So during the year end season, I decided to take all my accumulated leaves and spent 3 weeks with my folks.

Week 1: Lazed around. Celebrated the third birthday of my dear little princess Diya.
Week 2: Went to Baroda (Gujarat) at my sis-in-law’s place.
Week 3: Went to Mahesana and from there to Dwarika, Nageshwaram and Somnath.

Sort of religious trip mostly, but this silver cloud had a gray lining to it – my husband’s aunt passed away. She was a dear old lady with a sweet disposition, kind words and smiles for everyone she met. :( So we did spend 2~3 days paying our condolences, meeting with her children and grand children, generally helping out the grieving family to cope up. Apart from all this I also indulged in things I enjoy doing – cooked, made jewelry, sewed, read books.

There’s so much to tell you that one post will not be sufficient. Therefore, I’ve decided to write each piece as a separate one so I can take you back into a time which I enjoyed very much.

Hope you enjoy reading about it :)
