Glass painting & Crafts!!!

Ahhh…. It was such a sense of relief to be free for the past two days ๐Ÿ™‚ It was really a hectic for the past week as i had few must-do crafts kept lagging behind and so i had to finish those as the deadline for those was nearing. Thus i did the following craft works ๐Ÿ™‚ It was really a huge pile of experience i have got through this and i would like to share those too with you guys ๐Ÿ™‚

Glass painting:

First comes the glass painting which was my life’s first order for payment ๐Ÿ™‚ I was much excited as there was one more thing – Its my first large glass painting with 24” length and 17” breadth ๐Ÿ™‚ Phew! It took me 2 hours to make the small picture into a big one with this size… As am not good enough with drawing and painting skills i felt it really hard in managing the sizes and somehow i managed to draw the stencil for this one. If you look at the painting you might find it so simple but i was not able to cop up even with this simple design as i was not able to trace and had to draw it myself. Guess the outcome was not that bad.

Then i did the outlining for about an hour looking over the minute details which was not clear yet. Then i let it dry and the next day i did the coloring part with two coats to make it look dark and after that i felt quiet relaxed as it was not as bad as i thought it would be ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

And framing the painting was the most hectic task as i had to take the painting for about 2miles from my home and it was not that easy as i thought. I had a huge stress in handling this situation without my mom. That’s when i felt so bad that i really need a person to help me out and i cannot do each and everything by my own ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But i do managed to take it safe with lots of care and had it framed and the final outcome made me really feel good worth of getting money for it ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas Wreath:

Guys, do forgive me for this one. I had no idea of doing a wreath in my whole life. When i had to come over so much of wreaths in many blogs i just felt that i can do one wreath too for thisย Christmas. But i had a chance of doing a wreath last week as there was a function at my office and had to giveย bouquets to the clients. Luckily this time the clients left the bouquet at our office and so it was of no use at my office. So i got an idea of turning a part of the bouquet to a wreath and this was the outcome of it ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

The head bands and hair clips:

My sister was asking me for few headbands that would match her dress the best with the same kind of design i have made her few other headbands. But i was not satisfied in doing the same kind of patterns so i did few other designs and a few hair clips too in extra for a bit of surprise and i had to courier it to her as she stays in hostel… Guess she would have liked it ๐Ÿ™‚

The clips that are made of felt cloth...

The headbands made of fabric, satin ribbon and buttons...

Thus the week was quiet a busy one as each and every evening i left home from office i had to sit down for an hour or two of working for this which takes away my valuable time to be spent with the my best friends ( theย neighbor kids) and with my lovable mother… But it was quiet fun making all these too ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Colorful Houses!!!

I recently had a visit to Rasipuram. One of the educational hub in Tamilnadu. I happened to notice one thing about this place. Its the colors of the city. Its undoubtedly a colorful city ๐Ÿ™‚ I could find all sort of colors been painted on their house irrespective of the look and feel…

Guess the people here love to live their life soooo colorful ๐Ÿ™‚ But it does adds a beauty to the houses in a special way unlike my city with light shades of paints used in most of the buildings. So i happened to have a quick click on few of the colorful houses for your view ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Guess this would have been a colorful post too ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy blogging ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunset – II

This is another post for the Sunset from my cam ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I was travelling west

Chasing the sunset

Days were not quite long enough and any extension was welcome

But I never quite seemed to run fast enough

And though I ran faster and faster

And days became longer and longer

The sun would each day

Slip inexorably below the horizon

At one point on my travels

Just at dawn, or just at sunset

I can never quite remember

I stopped to rest at a road-side cafe

And by chance I met a woman going east

Chasing the dawn

Trying to make the nights shorter

Her name was Magic

And she carried a staff in her right hand

She wore a yellow cat-suit and a green silken robe

And she was befriended by a black cat with a golden collar

We arranged to meet again,

and as I ran faster so did she

until finally on the dawn of one of our meetings

we both arrived, me from the east

she from the west

and collapsed exhausted in each other’s arms

She kissed me warmly

And pressed her body into mine

I buried my face in her neck

And in the next moment I was holding nothing for comfort

Just my heart beat racing

A shiver running up my spine

A tingling gasp of breath

She was gone, as mysteriously as she came

She had said nothing but I’d heard every word

And she left me in WONDER

at her exactness ……

She was travelling east

Impatient for the dawn

Nights were too long

And any reduction was welcome

But she never quite seemed to run fast enough

And though she ran faster and faster

And nights became shorter and shorter

The hours would drag

The wolves would howl

The moon would light her footprints

And the shadows would fill her with fear

At one point on her journey

Just at dawn, or just at sunset

She could never quite remember

She stopped to rest at a road-side cafe

And by chance she met a man going west

Chasing the sunset

Trying to make the days longer

His name was Poetry and he carried nothing

He was all but naked and befriended by no-one

They arranged to meet again

And as he ran faster so did she

Until finally on the dawn of one of their meetings

They both arrived as the day was breaking

And happiness danced about

Like a smile that found its soul

You see,

I used to pray to live forever

But now I only pray to be a poet

I travel west …. chasing the sunset……

Sunset – I

Good morning friends ๐Ÿ™‚ Here comes my next post on Sunset ๐Ÿ™‚ This post has something in special with the sunset than the other ones ๐Ÿ™‚ This was takenย continuously and i have tried to capture each step of the sunset ๐Ÿ™‚ I felt better in this kind of view and so decided to post all those sequentially. Do enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you make out the differenceย betweenย these pictures??? ย The sun slowly sets down in each and every picture and at last there is no sun and its only the colorful clouds left behind ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
