Hi there !!
My name is Naush and I’m so glad you’ve found your way over to my little creative nook in the blog world.
My Family :-
I live in Dubai – United Arab Emirates.
Married to the love-of-my-life (samie) for the past 20 years !
My biggest and best role is that of being MOM to three amazing young boys ages
19, 17 and 16.
They are my biggest fans as well as my toughest critics.
Whatever little success, I’ve had in the past 15 years, I totally owe it to them.
Ofcourse my family is not complete without our feline children.
13 years back, we began our journey with our first two cats, Keiki and Pepper, however, today we have 9 cats and the fosters keep coming and getting adopted ‘thankfully’
This is my little world and I feel like I am blessed with the best job in the world :
being mom to them and being the center of their universe !!
My Passion :-
I’ve loved art since the time I was a toddler. It was the avenue I choose to express myself. I love all kinds of crafts but have worked for a longer period with papercrafting (designing handmade greeting cards, tags ), Decoupage, Mixed media, Printmaking, Woodworks, Sculpture, Jewelry making, concrete and a few others. I think, I find myself most happy when I am layering mixed media or drilling holes on planks from pallets or organizing my garden.
Guilt Trip :-
I must tell you that I am quilty of spending long hours of the day drooling on images of DIY, gardens, and recycling projects on PINTEREST rather than ACTUALLY working on these projects !!
What can I say, Pinterest is addictive 😉
Workshops & Programs :-
It’s great to introduce total beginners to the hobby and give them an outlet for their creative energies.. I enjoy sharing with people how simple products can be used to make fantastic end products, especially like altered art and trash to treasure projects.
Hall of fame :-
I was interviewed by City7 TV
Featured in Khaleej times, Gulf News, Emirates Woman and 7Days.
We have participated in Events held at Al Serkal Avenue, Tamimi Stables, The Archive & Khazan Park.
For the past year, I have been teaching crafts at the prestigious
Al Jalila Cultural Center for children.
I have also been a part of the winter camp at Ductac. (Mall of Emirates)
Doodle Buddies handmade greeting cards are hosted at
Organic Cafe, Wrapt and Tinker box.
My next workshops are scheduled at
Sajaya Young ladies of Sharjah
Dubai Garden Center.
I have given special workshops at Government schools for environment related recyle/reuse crafts.
I taught Visual Arts at school for the Primary division at Pristine Private School.
My workshop for ladies is as popular as my classes with children.
I love being around children.
Fun (weird) Facts about me !
I am a messy crafter 😦 My desk can fill to the brim with supplies when I’m on a project !
I’m a sucker for inspirational Quotes !
I love collecting baskets, small plastic containers, small vanity pouches, and coffee mugs.
I ‘might‘ be borderline-hoarder of craft supplies !
My Craft Studio is my home in my home !!!!
My biggest worry is :-
Can’t handle mornings with out my cuppa Joe !
Three things, I can’t leave the house without,
My wallet My Camera My mobile phone
Three causes, I stand for passionately,
Human rights Animal Welfare Environment protection
Life is really simple – more like
