A note to my baby | Princess Laiba turned 1

My heart explodes with so many emotions. Today is very special because you blessed my life with so much of love and joy. The love that is pure and genuine. It's been an amazing year watching you grow.
You learnt a lot of things this year.
You have learnt to laugh and giggle. You have started walking on your own. You have started making conversations with your sister over video call. You have learnt to team up with daddy and laugh at me. Sometimes when I am sad, you give me some real hugs and makes me feel out of the world. You have learnt to wave and say "hi" and "Assalamualaikum"
You even recite duas that I recite. You watch and study what we are doing and try to do the same on your own. You smartly ignore my requests at times. When I talk to someone about you over phone, you smile with pride as if you understand everything. Your happy place is the balcony where you play in the evenings. Time flies quickly. Being with you and watching you grow is my favourite thing to do. Iove you oodles and oodles.

Handbag album | Stationers desk

I have a new project to share with you today and this is something I had been waiting to create for the last two years. I know two years is a very long time but I was waiting for the best opportunity to knock my door and it finally did. If I talk about the papers, it was very difficult to part from them as I had been preserving them for about more than 3 years now. I wanted to create something for myself out of these papers as they are very close to my heart and offcourse they are no longer available in the market. I feel the colors, the textures and the designs they carry are extremely gorgeous. I've preserved all the bits and pieces of this collection that remained so that I can create some small pieces of art for myself and my studio badly needs it. 
Well, this is a beautiful handbag album with seven amazing folders with lots of flips and folds in different sizes. This is something every girl would like to have to store her memories. I hope you like it.

Victorian frames | Eye catching colors | Meher Shaikh

Tissue box | Touch of gold

Hey guys,
We've been creating something or the other we can make the most out of it in our day to day life & tissue paper is undoubtedly one of the most commonly used items that have been preferred in almost every household.

We definitely don't need an occasion to gift/pamper ourselves with things we love and we all expect to have things that are super exclusive & unique.

So I have a beautiful tissue box with some interesting techniques for you. Learn & pamper yourself while you enjoy the process of making.

I've a video tutorial for this tissue box which can be purchased separately with or without materials depending on your convenience.

I hope you like it and I'd be grateful if you share it. 
Thank you for stopping by!

A little about my life | My past 9 months journey

Pregnancy is definitely the best part of every lady's journey as you invite a little munchkin in your life. It was 25th of October early in the morning while I woke up to the sound of birds chirping as if they are celebrating a special occasion and I found that I'm pregnant. That was the moment to thank, enjoy, feel, live and believe in what just happened. Thanks for prega news - a home pregnancy test that gives you accurate results.
The first thing I did was informing my husband and calling up my parents to give them this big news for which they had been waiting for three years.
This was the time for me to take a break from work, be careful and take enough rest. did it too. But things always don't work as you expect and after three long weeks at mid night I realized that I've miscarried which was a big shock and dissapointment for both of us. We were waiting for sunrise and reached the hospital around 9:00 in the morning to know what's wrong. I had my first scanning done and I was informed that I had twins out of which only one is active. Although I miscarried one, I was still relieved that the other is active and I had to be extra careful. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. It is normal to feel some anxiety and stress but it shouldn't be ongoing and in my case the biggest problem was staying all alone and worrying about things for no reason. It is definitely a natural process but dizziness and nausea makes you weak and you tend to worry if your baby is doing fine or not.
I was on complete bed rest for the first three months and started with some tablets along with HCG5000 injection which was given to me twice a week for the first 3 months to support my growing baby. Staying with parents during first pregnancy is the best thing to do but I was not allowed to fly till 7 months as I already had complications in my first trimester. I was ok to take risk for myself but definitely not for my baby. So, I waited for 6 long months and decided to fly back to Bangalore on the 28th of March. It was a damn good feeling to be back to my mother's place with my belly buddy. It refreshed my stressed mind and heart. I realized how loneliness can kill you making your life a hell and you are literally incomplete without family and friends.
Today I've completed 8 months 20 days and my sleepless night made me draft this blog post today i.e June 12th. It's a rainy morning here and it's time to grab a cup of tea and I shall continue to pen down rest of my pregnancy journey post delivery.

It was 21st June around 8:45 I realized that my water broke. I had severe labor pain. I waited for the whole night and rushed to the hospital next morning. After a quick check up I was taken to the labor room and  the whole process started. At 11:00 pm my little princess arrived in this world bringing a lot of happiness in our lives.

Giving birth to a baby is definitely not easy. Respect woman and love her unconditionally! She goes through a lot of pain and she risks her life to give birth to a baby.

Yayyyyy!! So, finally it's Sunday and weekends are filled with excitement. Spending some quality time with family and hanging out is real fun and relaxing after a hectic week. It's sunny morning here in Kolkata today and I am sharing a new card that I created recently.
I believe each and every artist has his own style of working and if you had asked me about my working style a year back, I would have definitely described it as Vintage but lately I have been experimenting a lot! Whether it is designs, products, styles or even colours. I’ve always been open to trying new things and I'm pretty sure you are going to find it in my post today.  I've many more projects created in different styles and I'm going to be uploading them soon.
Grab a cup of coffee ☕ for now and enjoy the post.
