I was thrilled when I got requested to design ornaments, decoration. gift wrapping and lights for Christmas. As much as I enjoy the festivities involved in any occasion, I believe, the true essence of any religious festival is two folds. Not only does it bring us closer to our own Creator and but it also helps us realize the deeper values, our religion imparts. It is the one time of the year, when we tend to feel closest to our families and loved ones. Any occasion with out family presence is really quite a hollow shell. Don’t you agree ?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, consumerism has diluted human emotions and human values. Its all about brands and image. Everyone is lining up in the express lane to be fed with Pinterest images and a glamorous instagram existence.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Instagram. Infact, I am a self-proclaimed, Pinterest addict. But I don’t let these phenomenal tools take over my entire existence. I love shabby chic and elegant home decorations but I am frugal. If I can replicate a certain enticing design, I’ll try it out – OR just wait for the “sale offer” or “discounted price ”
I’d rather feel overjoyed with a “white Friday” Copic Marker set than pride myself over an exotic piece of jewelry. But that’s just how I am and its not necessary that you find my attitude normal. Infact, you actually might find it bizarre.
Ok, so back to today’s project which is Christmas decoration light.
This idea was mainly possible, b’coz just lately while scavenging thru one of my craft tools, I realized I had bought a wood burning tool which had drowned in the tsunami of other craft tools.
So what do you think ?
Would you attempt this project ? I really hope you are inspired to give it a go.
Please drop in a line to tell me if and how, you liked this frugal simple creation.
