IMG-20151228-WA0007I love to paint a lot! So much, that I can paint everything around me, from vases to boxes to phone covers and walls! So, why can’t I paint my shoes?  And that set me of and I was seen armed with brushes and tubs of paint and then I set to work. I painted them with acrylic colors to make them water proof and used warm shades, but you can use any shade you like, then I outlined them with a permanent marker to give a finished look. Lo and behold! Some boring, plain white shoes turned into colorful ones in just a few hours! You can try this too. Just put on your thinking cap, and get to work!

Hand Made Pendant Set For Mother!

image image2 Friends, on my mother’s birthday I gifted her a  pendant set.

One had a geometrical design & the other was  leaf shaped with my mother’s name’s starting  letter ‘S’ on it.

I will show you how to make it, so that  you can  also make it for your mother.

First apply talc powder on your hands & then take white M-seal and start making  the base shape that you want. Then to put it in the chain you need a hole, so with clay or M-seal make a round loop & attach it to the pendant.

If you want to engrave lines or designs in your pendant you must do this before it dries.

Tick, tock, tick, tock. Let it dry for a day or two. After it dries, take up your brush young artist & paint it with your favorite colors.

There we are. The pendant for your mother is ready!

Hello friends,

I am going to tell you how to make a M-seal leaf shaped plate.

Take a bowl & turn it upside down, put a leaf on top of it.

  • Apply M-seal on it.
  • For the base you can use a jar’s cap.
  • Then set another leaf on top.
  • After it is dry take both of the leaves off.
    paint it
  • Decorate it.
  • Make sure your leaf is large enough to make your plate. I made this in autumn with dry leaves.

Pleasure of giving handmade gifts.

It was my friend’ s birthday yesterday & I gave her a bag painted by me, I also gave her a poem , written by me on friendship.

I painted the bag & decorated it with glitter & wrote “best friends forever” under the painting.

What ever you do, the thing which is important is you made it.

If somebody would give me a gift made by self, even if it is not so perfect, I would be very happy.

I also made an envelope in which I put the poem.

I think, our feelings are more important than the gift.

Tell me which is more important ? A very luxurious  gift given with no love or a simple gift given with lots of love? Of course you know the answer.

So what are you waiting for? Go & make gifts for your friends with a smile & you will be showered with even more smiles.
