Hi y’all! 💞 It has been an amazing week and half and there have been quite a few share worthy happenings 🙂
The most important Hindu festival is here and we spent it in style both at home and at work. The whole country celebrates the victory of good over evil by bursting crackers, lighting diyas and gorging on sweets. My office was also a scene of celebration.!
(The last picture would be me getting a high over crackers 😝)
I’ve started taking doodling to new heights with these elaborate full paged doodles. I really enjoy doing them and the fact that they are absolutely useless doesn’t bother me one bit! 😂
And while most of them are pointless, I tried the Audrey Hepburn minimalist pencil sketching technique and I must say I’m quite happy. Can u tell the original from my drawing? Duh of course you can 😂😝
Festivals in general and important ones in specific solicit weeks upon weeks of ongoing celebrations. In that regard, Diwali is no different and our office just needs a reason to have fun, so we had a bay decoration contest (fun fun fun!) And our bay chose whatsapp to be the theme!
So this included our entire bay being dressed in shades of green and white, and each of our cubicles had a selfie of us with a “last seen at desk” time and a status! The entry to our bay even said “Join Group” and the exit said “Delete and Exit Group” LoL!
Needless to say, our bay won the contest. 😎 So in keeping with the theme, we did a Whatsapp Rangoli (Rangolis are patterns drawn on the floor and filled with color powder) Check out me and muh rangoli yo! 😜
Having your mom’s and dad’s birthdays in the same week can have an acute slimming effect on your pocket. Hence I chose to go easy on my mom (just a cake! Sorry mom you kinda had everything you wanted. 😝) and go big on my dad’s gift – a watch! And they both loved their gifts! 🙂
So!! What do you think? An awesome week or what? 🙂 hope you had and are still having an amazing week. Stay happy, stay safe and wish y’all a very Happy Diwali! May Good always win over Evil, may the Light always help those in Dark!
So, it is my close friend’s birthday so guess who smartly turned her new found hobby successfully into a personalized gifting idea? Yah thaaaats me! 😀
Sat twelve hours and made this piece of painting which I personally feel is the happiest most colorful and toughest paintings I’ve attempted so far. Say hey to awesomeness! 😀
So, the basic idea I flicked as usual from pinterest and gave my personal touches to it. Used acrylic as always to paint on canvas. Love canvas and acrylic because they are the easiest things to work over if you make mistakes. So that works pretty well for clumsy people like me. (dropped little paint on it once..and the paint brush full of wet paint once. So…er..ya. Clumsy..that’s me)
I hope my friend loves this painting as much as I loved doing it for her. Fingers crossed. X!
No posts from me for a while now ..but hey hey hey here I am 🙂
Vacation + birthday + weekend now that’s a win-win situation (actually a win-win-win situation .. Ha ha)
So had an amazing birthday put together by my friends in Chennai and family here in Mumbai. Both of them had arranged for a cake each (one death by chocolate cake and one cadbury dairymilk silk cake to be specific ) The cake cutting was followed by a surprise lunch get together oraganised by the mommy and my aunt. I was so excited I looked like The Joker (a maniacal smile stuck to my face) thanks to which I was quite a sight in all the photos … Hey in my defense, it was my first surprise party okayyy!! 😀
Whoever said “You dont choose your family, they are god’s gift to you” also said “you dont get to choose your relatives, that’s why god created friends” 😀 and I sure seem to have the best of both worlds dont you think? 🙂
Quick update 😀 its my kid sister’s birthday and I decided to go all out and throw her an elaborate surprise party 😀 hope she ends up having a blast.
And guess whats the best part of the party? The cake of course ! Requested a colleague at work to recreate Calvin at a particularly mischievous act and she has done it so well ! Check it out
Well I certainly wish I can have this cake and eat it as well…. (Funny and pun-ny me…right ? Right? 😛 )
