Chakras Poster

Me.. You.. Us...
Nature, Human, Brain, Psychology, Mind - Body - Soul, What works how and Why?
Such are some of the questions and subjects I have grown up with... As much as I am learning new things and subjects, my area of interests and my questions, are increasing... I am still floating in an ocean of questions..
But there is something I want to share with you all, Our "Chakra System". Understanding our chakras helped me identifying the obstacles for our physical, psychological and emotional well being, it also helped in finding ways to overcome that, it helped me to realize what exactly the word "Peace" means, like how it feels to be in Peace...
I doubt I have enough skills to fully express myself in words, I think internet has already enough amount of information about Chakras, because I too have learnt from internet.
The key is to keep thinking about everything you read and try to related various information together. Some good sources, from where I learnt, are pinned on my Pinterest Borad "MySpiritual Being". For people really interested in opening up Chakras I would request to visit the same.
This is my watercolor poster on the Chakra System. I created this so that daily I can see all this information in one place, until they are absorbed inside. These colors really attracts, even my 6 yr daughter is interested in this poster and keeps me asking various questions 😊. I tried putting all my learning in a single picture.
Please save the image below to get a clear and complete view.
I am posting this in my blog, as a little contribution or a token of Thanks, to those who shared their knowledge on internet, so that people like me can understand and learn the Chakra system, to make our life better.
Thanks Internet and all the knowledge sources behind it.

Here are my Daily Gratitude and Chakra Affirmation Posters.

Tree House - Photo Frame with Waste Materials

It's been a long time I posted to the blog, we have recently shifted to a new city and life was quite a busy... But interesting... As I love new things...
My daughter is growing fast and so my art and craft ideas, this time we had to create a photo frame with waste materials, for her 1st grade school project.
Nothing can be more beautiful than your own creation.
So here is the Photo frame we created for my daughter -

Materials required - Cardboard, tint / color papers, scissors, pencil, eraser, glue, ice crème sticks.

Procedure -
1. Draw your design on cardboard and cut the base structure.

2. Cut color paper pieces as per design (as in pic). For tree I cut the base green paper that covers all the space, so that cardboard doesn't appear anywhere.

3. Arrange and cut ice creme sticks as required.

4. Start sticking with the base green paper.

5. Then trunk and branches.

6. Randomly stick green and yellow cloud shape papers to complete the tree.

7. Start sticking ice creme sticks for the house.

8. Now the basic tree house design is ready. Now you can personalize it with items of your choice.

9. I covered a plastic ring with thread to create the Tire swing, With a bead I created the Lamp. And with few sticks i created the rope ladder. Then we decorated it with some of my daughter's drawings.

This completes our tree house, what will you add in yours? I would love to see, please share with us...

Plastic Bottle Flower (DIY)

Once again, an Eco friendly approach to reduce plastic waste, this time I made flowers with my plastic bottles. A flower that will not have any fragrance to attract your nostrils, but it would certainly catches your eyes, the flower that is not so soft to touch, but it's surely soft on mother earth, a flower that would look beautiful forever that would give you a satisfying feeling of creation...

Here is the super easy steps to follow, to make these flowers -
Material required - Plastic bottles, scissors, thin wire and pliers, beads, needle

1. Choose any shampoo, oil, talcum powder bottle, as per the colour of flower you want to create.

2. Remove the plastic wrapping of it.

3. Cut it in small rectangle pieces.

4. Shape them as petals of flower (flower design may vary as per your imagination).

5. Prick the needle at the bottom part of the petal to insert the wire.
6. Tie the wire around the petal and bead it as shown in picture.

7. Tie all 5 wires together tightly.

8. Open up the flower by spreading the petals.

9. Make as many colourful flower as you want.

DIY Baby Saree - Wrap around Saree

DIY Baby Saree - For cute little princesses

I brought her fancy and simple frocks, I brought her many pairs of Jeans, skirts and tees, I even brought her princess dresses and ghagharas... but she was not satisfied. 
She wants a Saree, something like mamma has. It's a mystery why a little girl wants all the things that her mamma has, while she's still a small girl, I refuse to let her grow up, but sometimes it feels so cute, so sometimes I surrender. Like this one, I got forced to make a saree for her.
But Me and my daughter, we both are happy with the finished product. She loves it so much that she wanna wear it all the time...

Here is the procedure how I made this saree -
Materials - any soft saree, cloth for lining (Astar), Sewing machine and materials.
Procedure -
1. Take two cloths, a soft saree of size (204 x 24 inch) a lining cloth size (37 x 24 inch).

2. Stitch both the saree and lining cloths on two sides (as shown in pic)
3. once saree and lining cloth is stitched together, make 6 pates, 4.5 inch each, and stitch these plates on the base part of saree (as shown in pic)

4. Attach 3 Skirt / pant hook set to the saree. Hooks at the back side and closing ends on the front side (As shown in pic)
5. Your saree in complete now.
All the measurements are based on my 5 yr old girl's height and waist size, so you may need to adjust as per your daughters measurements.
6. Its like wrap around, so while draping the saree, adjust the two hooks besides plates, as they should come in front and in center, close all the hooks and drap the pallu, either falling or gujrati style or anything that your daughter likes...

Do make one, they look really adorable...
