Three in a row – Award season for me

Blogging becomes fun when you constantly get that recognition.

The month of June arrives with a season of awards for me !!

Can’t thank Colline enough for nominating me for the Tell me about yourself award 

Colline @ Colline’s blog is one lady who never fails to inspire me, she is a constant support system. I thank her for being so generous and positive. I always wish her all the best in whatever she does.

Next, I thank Kat for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger award and the One Lovely Blog award.

Kat @ Diary of a PHAT kat is a blogger friend. I need to ask her once the logic behind the strange name of her blog 🙂 She is one person to look at, for those exotic DIY nail arts and some great cooking recipes. Thank you friend….

While I accept these awards from them, there are a few rules I need to follow :

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog. I would like to thank Colline and Kat over and over again, their links are up there 🙂
  2. Write seven interesting things about yourself. I’ll try to be as honest as possible 🙂   1) I can lie pretty very well, without being caught…. 2) I do not like to share my chocolate with anyone…..3) I hated having kids, and I have two now !!…..4) I had never been to my college canteen….5) I have mastered a subject in which I usually failed at my secondary school ( I took it up as a challenge )….6) I hate my profession as a teacher……7) I love wasting my time, surfing the net, playing a sport or sleeping 🙂
  3. Choose seven nominees and leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they’ve been nominated This is the toughest part in accepting an award. I can’t actually decide on only seven coz there are umpteen I follow and enjoy. I have nominated the following though, with no offence to ones not nominated :

Enjoy your day scrolling through my favourite blogs 🙂

My first DIY

So finally I reorganised the schedule and got all in place 🙂

The very first thing I did was to browse through all those lovely blogs I was missing out, and suddenly I bumped into a DIY blog. It was all about arts and crafts and how to create beautiful things easily.

You can check out the blog here. I bet, you will bookmark it 🙂

At some point in life, we all need an inspiration to jumpstart on something. Although it’s all in there, we need to redefine and search within.

And here was mine. This lovely lady’s writing inspired me to such a level that I was forced to experiment with whatever was at hand.

Since long I had been wondering what to do with the empty wine box I had in my closet. Everyday I looked at it, I would let out a sigh, thinking how do I put it at use. Same was the case with an Egyptian hand painting, a friend had gifted my hubby. The painting had been damaged at the corners, during its journey to my home, and wasnt in a condition to be framed. But it was too dear to be discarded !!

I combined the two useless things and decided to do a DIY piece for a table corner, which was vacant since long.

Here is how it all went………….

Is there something that strongly inspires you ?

Have you tried a DIY anytime?

Do share your experience ………….
