Spiral Paper Backdrop

Sometime back, walking through the mall and doing some window shopping, noticed these beautiful backdrop at one of the store window displays. These were made with papers and you know how much I love paper. I had to come home and give it a try. And I am glad I did, these turned out beautiful.

Birthday Classroom Favors

Few days back, when we celebrated our daughter's b'day, we wanted to celebrate her birthday with her classmates too. In the past, I have taken cupcakes to be shared with the classroom, but with the policy of no food items to be shared in class, I was looking for different ideas.

Mermaid Birthday Party!

This year, my daughter wanted a Mermaid Birthday Party. So I was decided on throwing a swimming birthday party for her at the local YMCA swimming pool. Till few days before the party, when I wanted to book the pool, I came to know that the party slot was only late in the evening, which didn't work for us. So had to come up with other option. I ended up having the party at home, but had to incorporate some water mermaid related games and activities.

Anything you serve in little cups has to be good and what if the cups itself is made of chocolate.

Folded Paper Heart Tutorial

So last week, I made this folded paper heart, which I was really excited about and wanted to share it in the blog. I didn't even have the tutorial ready then, but still wanted to show how it turned out. Since then, a few have asked for the tutorial to make these. So, here it is.

Folded paper Heart

Few weeks back I visited our local library and in the lobby they had the pages of one of the books folded to form the work 'Read'. I was fascinated and came back home and searched how to make these folded pages art. Well, I didn't fold pages to make a word, but I started small and made this heart. And I love it!!

Cookie Dessert cups

This is a fun way to serve icecream or in my case, some cream cheese with whipped cream in these cookie cups.

I wanted to make something which was not difficult to make, but looked fancy. I was running out of time, when we had some guests over for dinner and I needed to make some dessert. So, I used the store bought cookie dough, but you can  use your own favorite cookie recipe or even brownie recipe would work great to make these cups.
