Photo frame

Hi Friends !!

Today I am going to share with you another photo frame decorated with shilpkar.

Shilpkar / M-seal is very easy to use. You just need to mix the white and the black portion properly and it is ready to use. Mould flower/figures of your choice and place it directly on the surface you want to decorate.

These beautiful bouquet of flowers is inspired from pinterest.

I have used acrylic colors to paint the flowers.

Here is another painting in colored pencil medium which  I have just completed in my drawing class. Thanks to my teacher who puts in lots of effort and time to teach me art.

Do drop in with your comments/feedback on the above. I would love to hear from you.

Till next time have loads of fun.

Photo frame with Madhubani

Hello Ladies !!!

Today's my son last exam and I have finally got time to do my blog post.During these past few week, everything has been on hold. My craft cravings, drawing classes, shopping for Durga Pooja............. etc. 

I chanced upon few photo frames in my craft stock and decided to some painting on it. This is a  medium sized photo frame measuring approx. about 8" x 6". I have painted peacock motifs in madhubani style using  acrylic colors. 

Another pic.

It didn't take much time to finish, However I am not happy with the end result. Maybe my mind was not completely on it, or maybe I was just too adamant to satisfy myself psychologically that I have done something..........., I don't know exactly but,  down the line it didn't came out so well as I expected it to be. People around me are telling me that I am mistaken and that it is looking good, They don't want me to get upset.. maybe... So now the ball is in  your court. You tell me hows it looking??????????????????????????

I would like to end this blog post with this colored pencil drawing of Taj Mahal, which I had completed last month. The basic color combination is net inspired with few incorporations at my end to give it my own personal touch.

Do drop in with your comments and let me know how it looks. 

Till next time take care and have a nice day.............

Playing with pastel colors....

 Hello Ladies !!!!

 Good Morning to you all !!! 

Its been quite some time since I have done a blog post so I thought I will do a quick blog post and share with you my  arty  adventures which I have been concentrating on  lately............

Basically I am a very fickle minded person, I can't concentrate on one craft for long. So I hop from one craft  to another. This I feel adds on to my creativity and also helps to  keep boredom away. 

I have always wanted to gain expertise in sketching and coloring. Even though I do make drawings every now & then but I feel there are flaws in it & that I should get to know it more.

In my endeavor to do the same I have joined classes and would like to share some of my art work with you.

These are all oil pastel shading.

Do drop in with your comments /liners on the above. 

Have a nice weekend and "Happy Janamashthami " to all.

Till next time Ta..Ta..& take care

Potato & Oats Cutlet

Hi Friends !!!

Hope you all are doing good.

Today I am going to share with you this wonderful and healthy cutlet recipe. Its  very easy to make and you can have it as a evening snack or your can give it  to your children in their lunchbox.

For this you need :

Potatoes (Bolied) - 4 nos
Oats - 1 cup
(Here I have used Masala Oats)
Finely Chopped Large Onion - 1 no\
Few julians of Ginger
Green Chillies finely chopped - according to taste
Red Chilli Powder - 2tsp
Roasted Zeera Powder - 1tsp
Garam Masala - 11/2 tsp
Aamchoor Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Flax Seeds - 1 tsp
Salt - according to taste


First of all peel the potatoes and keep aside. Now slightly roast the oats. Mix only half cup of oats and keep the rest aside. Now add chopped onions, green chillies, julians of ginger and all the masalas. Mix it properly. It the mixture is too soft then you can add little bit of cornflour.

Now make small round balls from this mixture and flatten them with your palms. Spread the leftover oats in a plate. If you want you can also add some bread crumbs to this to give it more crunch. Roll these tikkis on to the oats & bread crumb mixture and shallow fry it  in a non-stick pan from both sides.

Your potato & oats cutlet are ready. You can serve it with tomato ketchup or green chutney. 

This recipe is a nice way of feeding your children oats which they normally do not like. Flax seeds is yet another healthy ingredient which makes it more health friendly.

Do try this at your home and let me know how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a nice day !!!

Delicious Raagi

Hello friends !!!!

Hope you guys are all doing well. Summer is at its full peak. Cool showers has also not helped to lower down the temperature. Hopefully,monsoon will arrive soon and we might get some relief from this scorching heat.

Today I am going to share with you a wonderful recipe made out of Raagi flour. Also called Finger Millet this has many health benefits. It contains natural iron and has generous amount of calcium. Consumption of  raagi not only helps in lowering cholesterol but  is also very good for diabetic patients.

I came across this recipe in one of my very old recipe note book, lying hidden between the heavy books, in my book shelf. I was elated when I found this. Long forgotten recipes which I had jotted down from magazines,television........ When I noted it down, I forgot to write the name(maybe I was in a hurry), whatever. So I am not sure what should I call it. You can call this a cake, if you like, but it tasted more like a brownie to me.Even my kids confirmed it. So I am calling it Raagi Brownie

For this you need :

1 1/2 cups Raagi Flour
3 Large Eggs
1 cup powdered sugar
(I replaced this with equal portion of honey and dark chocolate)
3 tbsp Maida
120 gms butter/oil
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Lime juice
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
 a pinch of salt

Pre heat the oven at 180 C


Mix raagi flour, maida and baking soda. Separate egg yolks and egg white. In another mixing bowl mix butter and sugar thoroughly. Add egg yolks, lime juice and salt. Now add the dry ingredients (flour mixture) to this and mix properly. Now beat the egg whites separately till you get peaks and add slowly to the prepared mixture. Pour this in a greased pan and bake it for 40 min or till done. Serve this with vanilla ice-cream. It tastes awesome!!!!

I enjoyed making this because not only it is healthy but it also turned out to be very delicious. My kids loved it and I was happy that I was able to feed them a healthy dessert.

Do try this out and let me know how you liked it.

Please drop in with your comments and have a nice day.

Mocha Muffins

Hello friends !!!!

 Last week we experienced high voltage storm in the city. Dwarka and adjoining areas were effected badly. Large number of trees were uprooted and few unfortunate accidents also took place.With no electricity and short water supply we had tough time for few days.Luckily now everything has come back to almost normal.

Some time back, while net surfing I came across this amazing site which is solely dedicated to baking. The receipes are simple and the instructions are easy to follow. So now a days I am concentrating on improving my baking skills.

One such receipe which I tried recently, was of Mocha Muffin. Made of chocolate and coffee, the muffin turned out to be quite delicious.

Amalgamation of whole wheat flour adds on to health quotient. I also added small amount of oats to make it more healthy. 

My kids loved it and I like it toooo.

In case you guys want to try out this receipe, kindly visit the above mentioned site.

Do drop in with your comments.

Take care and keep smiling. That's what life is all about.....

Crochet Mobile pouch

Hello every body !!!

It has taken me  a while to do this blog post. Blame it on my poor time management or my erratic household chores which leaves me with very  little time to do my posts on regular intervals. Maybe this is how I am.How much I try hard ......................I always fall behind. Maybe this is life........ with its unforeseen twist and turns it becomes difficult to implement your POAs. But then, I feel, without all this unexpected turns of events,  life would be sooooooo boring and bland. Hence, with this new thread of inspiration I am back with this small crochet mobile pouch which I took ages to complete. 


It's a very simple pouch & I chose shell stitch pattern for the same and finally decorated it with beads.

I hope you like it.

Kindly share your views on this project. I would love to hear from you.

See you with my next blog post(hopefully soon). Till then keep smiling and have loads of fun.
