Exhibition pics!

Hi there,

Its been a while since I posted. Sometimes its just nice to let life take over and bask a little. I have been having a lot of fun with family and extended family in town for the summer. So blogging took a back seat. Then there was the exhibition that Shobana and I had to get ready for. Tons of products to make and showcase. It was a good two days at CP Art Centre, though tiring. We learnt which products were a hit and which werent and frankly, I was very surprised at what I found out. We also got orders that we are working on fulfilling  right now.

All in all, a good start. Here are some pics.


That’s the two of us. Shobana did a live quilling demo. People who walked into the exhibition were very impressed with how fast she was churning out those perfectly quilled motifs.

PTI’s Favor It boxes put to good use. Perfect for tucking in those little gifts —a pair of earrings, few Ferrero Rochers, or even a gift card.

Handmade embellies for decorating gift boxes and sealing gift envelopes. At the bottom of the pic are post-it note holders.

We also had lots and lots and lots of greeting cards and mini albums for sale.

Gita and Prashanti 0f VASTRAAKAR  displaying their colourful embroidered salwars, sarees and Kurtis. Very innovative in their design ideas Gita and Prashanti are truly masters of their craft and yet remain  very humble.

Kavitha Sridharan of CHINGARI jewellery displaying her gorgeous handmade and unique jewellery pieces.

So there, I finally posted some pics. I am already looking forward to our next exhibition.

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by to encourage us (many of them read this blog).

Until next time…….




I have been missing in action here for a while now. And that is becuase I have been busy creating up a storm of cards and mini albums for a special occassion. Remember I talked about something special brewing. This is it.

My crafting friend Shobana Ravi and I, have decided to pool our talents (ahem ahem!) and our crafting supplies to good use and are collaborating together for our new venture – Paperz! Since we are anyway sharing crafting supplies, we thought it might be a better idea to generate some income considering that crafting is quite an expensive hobby, if you want a pie of all the goodies that are now available in the market! 🙂

Introducing – *drumrolls*

More big news! We are having our first showing at an exhibition/sale tomorrow and the day-after, 26th and 27th of July at C P Art Centre (Mini Hall), Eldams Road, Teynampet, Chennai.

This event will also showcase some friends of ours, who are equally talented in their fields.

Kavitha Sridharan – she makes some amazing jewellery – all custom made and handmade!

Prashanti and Geeta – they do amazing embroidery and handwork on all kinds of fabrics!

So….all the excitement has been building over a couple of weeks now 🙂

If you are in Chennai next week, we would love for you to stop by.

And if you are a Chennai-ite, then we would love to meet you. Hop on over to say hi.

We need your good wishes and blessings for a successful show.

Thanks much and hoping so see some of you on tuesday and wednesday.
