Trap 'em

Just a couple of days back my Facebook status read- "Phewww... need some 'Me Time'!!" and it was like a wish granted instantly. I finally have a weekend all for myself... after years. I had a long 'to-do' list to accomplish and I started out with the most interesting of them all. 

This victim was THIS ugly box...




After spending some 15-20 minutes on it's re-do, I came up with this.






The box will now be used to contain the coins that fail to find way into our wallets.

Right before taking them all in...


Seated in the cupboard...


For the camera...




Something similar to this was made two years back. Check it out here.
How do you manage coins? Kids' piggy bank, a bowl, bag or purse, corner of the cupboard or simply use the 'Keep the Change' theory?




If the blues used here, remind you of something which you are unable to recollect, it can probably be the birthday cards that I made for Sanket on his birthday. The stuff used for 'the' re-do are simply left-overs from Project- Birthday Cards. This box features well as another 'Trash to Life' attempt.

Holi 2012

Since I am sleep-less even at 3:30 AM, I thought I'll quickly stop-by and say a quick 'Hello' to my favorite people!! How have you been friends? I have had a roller-coaster ride in the last one month. Things suddenly changed at work and resulted in long working hours to the extent that whatever little sleep I got, I was haunted by dreams about work. Thankfully, all is normal now. But one thing that is highly abnormal is my getting up at around 6 every morning for absolutely no reason!! This is pretty strange for a person like me, who can sleep till 9 in the morning and still does not feel like coming out of bed for another hour or two... Ahhh, were did those days go :(

 Come this weekend... And I'll sleep like a princess :)

Once my sleeping quota is met, the other things that need my attention are my house - which needs some serious interior shuffles and arrangements, kitchen - the most ignored part of the house ever since we moved in a month back, friends and online socializing.

A welcome break from a hectic schedule was the celebration of my favorite Indian festival- Holi. A non-North Indian colleague at work asked me about the religious significance of the day and it actually took me some time to explain it to her. Not because I did not know but because holi for me is all about colors and crazy fun. For the same reason, I am not writing the 'whys' and 'hows' of this festival here. I'll just share the wild pictures of the day. 

Have fun and just in case you wanna know more about this festival click here... Wiki is a star. He knows it all!!!
