Christmas Sneak Peek!

Sure it's started looking a lot like Christmas......why not its only a week away. Finally my Christmas tree is also up....not that big one rather its a tiny one made out of something that you can't even think of.
Actually I've never ever celebrated Christmas in this way like decorating tree and making wreaths but this time I wanted to let my kid know that how diverse is our Indian culture, how colourful and bright is every festival here and how people from different casts and religion come together and celebrate every festival with great enthusiasm. :-)

My lil' one is also very keen to know about different countries and their culture. So I involved him in process that's going on in my home for Christmas, from making wreath to decorating tree he helped me out. Now he has started dreaming about gift he will going to recieve from Santa who will come riding his sleigh with all that Tinga-linga-ling & ho ho ho on Christmas night.

Well here's what my lil' one and I did for Christmas.............

Christmas Tree Craft

Wreath made of paper Quilling and beans........

Tree made out of used broom (pardon me). We coloured it green then glued red beans and silver glitter. Filled a pot with silver bolls made of foil and placed tree in it.

Glorious Diwali

For me its whole new meaning of celebrating Diwali in my new home. The last month was like roller-coaster ride. I was busy doing every possible thing that I could do for Diwali preparation.From cleaning every corner and nook of home to decorating it with my own artifacts, from preparing sweets and dishes to making gift boxes for family and friends. And I enjoyed this hectic schedule a lot. I was on cloud nine when I heard words of appreciation. Joy and happiness on my family's face was my biggest reward and it took away all my weariness.
Though I couldn't find time to click all the pics when I lit all the diyas and tea light candles but as soon as I got time I just started clicking images because I wanted to cherish this moments all my life.
Lets have a virtual tour of my home....come on in....

Colourful rangoli to welcome Goddess Laxmi and to my guests.

Floating rangoli and floating candles creating warm and inviting ambience.

Flower & mango leaf toran with backdrop of fairy lights.

Designer diyas made by me all around my home to light up the space and to light up me in glory.

Serenity near holy basil plant. It looked wonderful with fairy lights changing its colour every second.

Shri Ganesh and Laxmi idol and tranquility.

One of my fav click of last year's Diwali.

And a gift box made by me to spread happiness and cheerfulness among loved ones.

Have a lovely weekend ahead friends and stay creative!!!
