Happy Valentines!!


This year for valentine class gift/card exchange, we gave tattoos. I found this adorable 'love' tattoo boxes at target and thought it was great for giving out to friends.

I printed these sayings which I thought was appropriate with tattoos...'I'm stuck on you', 'Stick with me Valentine' and 'I'll stick with you Valentine' on plain Word document. Cut the sayings out and tied it with a ribbon. It looked quite plain on a plain printer paper, maybe I should have printed on red paper. But this is what I had, so ended up just coloring the top and bottom with red pen. That's red enough I think..:)

Cardboard Dollhouse


I made this doll house few months back. I made it with one of the packaging boxes from Amazon. It was a nice recycling project, which was fun to make and turned out pretty nice. I tried furnishing the house and as you can see made a dresser and stove too. I did add other pieces too - made sofa and a bed. And then my little helpers took it over. They colored on the walls and also the furniture. But this is how it looked before the little interior designers took over.

Cork Sail Boats


I wanted to share one of the projects that my daughter did. She loves arts and crafts. You might want to check out some of her other art works at http://rheasart.blogspot.com/
These boats can actually float, so its fun racing them. Try blowing bubbles using the straw or come up with ways to make your boat move forward and race...:)

Tie-Dye Cake


I made a tie-dye cake for the painting theme birthday we had few days back.  You can see more pictures from the Painting Birthday party here. I wanted a colorful cake to go with the theme. And I loved how this came out to be.

My kids helped me in mixing the colors in the batter and it was like a science project for them...:) They loved mixing the colors and also loved seeing the colors once it was cut.

Painting Birthday Party.



We had a fun paint Birthday party few days back. The kids got to paint little figurines at the party, which was also one of the favors.

I had a hodge podege of ideas till only few days before the party as to what I wanted for that day, but it came out all well at the end..:) Had fun making the paint palette cookies. The rice krispie paint brushes was a last minute addition we made on the day of the party. I love colorful parties and the theme for this party was itself colorful, so loved everything about it.

8 Point Origami star



I made an Origami star few days back, the one which is pictured below and I had so much fun making it, that I wanted to try learning making more and different kinds. By the way, you can find the instructions for that star, which started all this here.  Now that I am trying more origami stuff, you'll be seeing more of such posts here in the coming days...:)
