Celebrating With Cards

Almost September-end and we have had only one post in the month. Blame it on anything but me!! I am super busy these days, more mentally than physically. When at work, I tell myself that I'll give blogging a shot at home and at home, I barely get time. Is there any inhabited place in the Universe with days that have more than 24-hours? And weeks that have more weekends than weekdays?

Between all the hustle-bustle in life was a promise to keep. A promise made to self for dear ones in family! Remember we talked about how I decided to give handmade cards to all family members on their special days? You saw some of the cards here, here, here, here and here.

And now... It's time for the new lot!

August-September saw the birthdays of three family members. Sister-in-law who wears several hats in a day, younger sister working hard to make a mark in all that she does and nephew who is slowly and very steadily learning the ways of life. Three people, three different walks of life. Here's what was presented to them.

For Sister-in-Law

For Sister

For Nephew

Out of all, the one person who loved the card the most was little Aarush, my 3 year old nephew. He lives, dreams and thinks airplanes day-in day-out. To see three planes on his b'day card, he was elated. So much so that he took it to school as well. That's what is true appreciation. **smiles**

I have another bunch of cards ready. Will post the pics soon. Stay tuned!

Mid of the week, it is... too late to ask about the weekend that went by and too early to discuss the plans for the upcoming one. So, I will leave it were we are and sign off by wishing you all a fab week. See you soon!

Amazing August

August was interesting and beautiful, yet challenging. Let's keep the latter aside and focus on the good and precious moments of the month, which was packed with excitement, travel, fun and lots of awesome food. 

First up... the HP Inkjet Printer, which I won for writing this, finally arrived home. 
This new addition to the house just made printing, scanning and copying a lot more easier. 
The tech-guru of the house, Sanket, did not take more than a few minutes to make all the features available over internet. 
An email from anywhere in the world, can get me the print right away. 
Interesting, isn't it!

And I did some shopping.
Brass is all over the market these days.
Remember the colorful wooden bangles, which were followed by the thread woven bangles...
all of those have been replaced by these shiny metal ones.
I prefer mix and match. How about you?

Talking about food... we'll go in the reverse order... 
Starting with desserts- my favorite course of the meal :D

This picture was taken at Theobroma, Powai, Mumbai.

And this one... at Salsa Salsaa, Gurgaon.
The frequency at which we eat out and the awesome food that tickles our taste buds has given birth to the idea of sharing the foodilicious experience at a better platform. 
But for now, my plate is full! May be down the lane.

The garden has been blooming with flowers.
It's good to be greeted by these beauties after long hours at work.

Love how well the phone has captured the colors and shades of this flower.
By the way, anybody knows the name of this species?

I just love these red flowers but I hate that they have such short life.
A day! That's it. A day is all that they adorn my garden.

At my sister's birthday party.. with my favorite people :)
Aaa-aaa... one of them is behind the camera.

How was your August? Had a garden full of fruits and flowers? Spent time with family and friends? Enjoyed rains or got stuck in traffic? Went out hopping around the city? Hope you had a superb August and are geared for an even better September :) 

Smile always.
