Winner of my Blog Anniversary Candy!!

It was my daughter's birthday yesterday and as announced I wanted to pick the winner of my candy. It was done yesterday and I never found time to write down a Blog post.

I had total 30 qualifying entries. I wrote down the names in paper and asked my little princess to pick up one. She enjoyed shuffling it through out. She couldnt stop herself from picking one. As soon as she handed me over the 1st one she picked, She picked up one more and said "Ma, this too"(In tamil actually). So I decided I will give the second one the Basic grey coupon code.

So, the winner of candy is


And the second one my cutie pie picked was

(Am happy she picked your name Zubi. I remembered your comment on your willingness to receive the Basicgrey coupon only late last night. Wow...Its purely a coincidence )

Megha, Please email me your contact address. Will dispatch the goodies soon.

Zubi, Send me your email id. I will send you the coupon code.

Thank you all others who participated and supported my candy. You are all my inspiration and motivation. Thank you for always being around.

A little candy of love!! On my first Blog Anniversary!

(This Blog candy post will be a sticky post till 27th Feb till my candy closes. Scroll down for my new posts)

February has always been a special month for me -. 'LOVE'ly month, isnt it? It has become even more special after I started blogging. 

Just an year ago, I was not even aware of this lovely little world called ‘Blog’. Inspired by so many Bloggers around, I opened a blog and had my blog for a whole month unused before I picked up the courage to share my cards.  It was a kind of Scary to look at other experienced Bloggers around and with the kind of Creations they share, I was not sure whether I should even pen down anything or post my initial creations.

And then, I got addicted to  'Blogging'. I was so touched with the warmth I felt in here with the wonderful Blogging friends around. I have made so many New friends and Best friends who share the same interest. 

The appreciating comments my blogger friends leave whenever I post something has always encouraged and motivated me DO MORE. 

But The whole year through I had blogged less than a card a month with my little one around. Its only from this New year, I had decided to dedicate more of my time towards my passion. And till this time, I have perfectly followed it....  

At this moment, I sincerely thank all my blogger friends for making me feel comfortable with the Blog family, For giving me a 'At home feeling'. 


With this feeling of gratitude, I would love to offer my blog friends a cute little candy(yes,really little... ha ha).. Have not decided what the candy is gonna be. Will post a pic of it asap.

Am still new to blogging. And I dont want to get more confused using Random generator or something like that as I am yet to discover how to use it. So, just leave me a comment with your email ids. I will write the names down n ask my lil one to pick one of u on her birthday ,the 27th of Feb. Will b posting the winner before 1st of march as soon I get a chance to blog. Will post it worldwide as most of my Blogger friends are from outside India.

To be in the candy, 
1) Be my Blogger friend if you are not already
(2) Add the above pic to ur sidebar with a link back to this post
(3) Leave a comment .

A File folder style tag holder!

This is a tag holder I created to gift my hubby on Valentine's day. Just wanted to give him something other than a card. Was browsing through Google for ideas. Then decided on Tags. But wanted a holder for the tag. Suddenly I remembered the tutorial post by Priya on Crafters corner challenges. I just followed the tutorial and created my version. 

I didnt want to try out any twist from the tutorial becoz of limited time..He was out of town n had to finish it n keep it as a surprise before he returned home. So I had to complete it last week itself.

So, here is my version of it. 

The Outer look with tags inside 

Looks like this when opened 

Used a Velcro to keep the holder intact when closed

The Box with the Tags. This is will be the sixth valentine's day since In got to know him. So made Six tags.

Front view of the tags. Just added some Embellishment and left it blank for me write my thoughts before I hand it over to him. 

The other side of the tags. Distressed it and added some Quotes.

Hope you all like it. Happy crafting.
