Mod Podge Drawers

Hows everyone doing post Christmas celebrations and travelling.... gearing up for New years?.... oh that reminds me...made any resolutions yet?

My biggest resolution is probably going to be doing lots of organization and more organization... and like every year it would last only for about the first 4-5 months..:P

So while on the topic of organization... let me share with you an amazing project I saw while blog surfing.  The Ferguson's at the Garage Sales R Us made this project look so simple with easy to follow step by step tutorials. 

These are mod podged drawers using scrapbook paper. Isn't it a brilliant idea..

I absolutely loved this project..... what do you think? ....I am definitely going to try this on some of my garage treasures...:)

You can find step by step tutorials here

Christmas Countdown

What do festivals symbolize...  broadly speaking, an occasion to rejoice..celebrate and be happy... This is what Christmas means to me...it's the time of the year when I want to spoil my nieces with gifts and surprises...plan holiday lunches..brunches..dinners..dress up and be happy... 

This year however is going to be a little low key on the partying front... I am writing my thesis and defending soon , so everything else has taken a backseat.

Well but me being ME... could not resist keeping away from buying and wrapping up for too long.. so I finally started wrapping up the gifts for my nieces.. 

...I can't wait for them to tear these open...:)

What do festivals mean to you..? would love to hear back from you'll..Merry Christmas folks..xoxo

Locked Hopes

Here in the US, you may have commonly seen locks on bridges, fences, gates, or similar public fixture to symbolize unbreakable love..the "love locks" as they are often referred to..

These caught my attention while we were visiting the Brooklyn bridge in NYC...I wondered about the people who placed them here...with lots of hopes..where are they now??..are they still together or have they moved on..??.. do they even remember they did this once... for some it may be a bitter sweet memory...

Hmmm... contemplating.??....... I took this shot and moved on...

Have a great weekend guys..xoxoImages @ Shaz Originals
