Hello ladies ! I hope everyone has been having a week as nice as I have or atleast kinda ! Well, to begin with, I am so glad to see the scores and scores of digi stamps on breast cancer and even more delighted so see so many inspirational cards being designed for this drive. Years back, I had read a book where the main life changing point in the story arises with the diagnosis of breast cancer and how the main character went thru the whole process and delimma of chemotheraphy and its sideeffects etc. I know, having so much reading material around me and awareness, should be pushing me into getting my first mamogram done, but for whatever reason (maybe just worry ) I have been avoiding the appointment.
Last year was an exceptionally difficult one and the aftermath of what it bought with it, was also one of the reasons, I was delaying the date. But seeing so many daughters forcing their moms to get a mamo has prompted me too, to seek a gynae. Lets see, maybe somewhere in a fortnight.
Okey dokey, glad I got that off my chest, now that I made this commitment on my blog, I better very well, keep up with it, lest one of you asks me in a fortnight, what happened about my date with the gynae !
Here in Dubai, we have a huge mix of cultures and diverse nationalities co-existing together in harmony. Nobody really steps on anyones toes as far as religion or race is considered, except those who bring these pity notions with them from their own countries. Already we have celebrations underway, for the national day celebrations, Festival of Eid early november, Diwali, the hindu celebration, Halloween’s around the corner and ofcourse Christmas. One of the reasons, why all these occasions play any significance in my household is coz with these occasions comes a huge demand for gift baskets, party favors, school favors and diwali gift baskets. This is the busiest part of the year for me, what with all these orders and delieveries !
Although I am already running short of time for delivering my goods, I will share samples with you’ll here. I hope some of them inspire you and some of them have you drooling over (lol)
This first post is about a baby shower, one of my friend’s collegue has requested make for her sister in law who is expecting a baby in a couple of weeks. She did not want the traditional colors of pink or blue and she has quite a thing for purses, so I decided to take it from there. I have made purses/bags using the main colors as orange and green. The little baby with the blankie is a digi stamp and so is the sentiment circle. Although there are scores of templates out there on the net, I prefer to use my own template which can be scaled up or down, subject to the requirement.
Please do leave a note/comment telling me how you found this baby shower purse. I’d really feel encouraged and appreciate it.
