Hi friends, I am starting as an amateur in writing. This is going to be my first blog and I am very excited to proceed this exciting journey where I can share my feelings, my experience, my learnings from life,my fears and much more with people who are strangers to me yet they are sailing in the same boat. I know everyone has their own personal space and they don’t want to share this with other people, but I decided to do this as I want to..I really do.
I am living in United States of America….most of us dream of that. But truly speaking the day I landed at LAX Airport I was least excited to see the beautiful views , the huge buildings, infrastructure, modern gadgets etc. etc. I was only missing my family, relatives, friends….i was missing those people whom I never thought I will ever miss….u wont imagine I was even missing my maid..who used to do cleaning work at my home…yes I was missing her too…the flow of emotions were so intense that initially I used to feel..when will I go back..back to my country my people..i.e. India. I used to nag..nag a lot. Days passed and I realised that there is no way out and I have to stay here at least till my husband’s project will continue.That was the peak time for me to decide whether to waste this time in nagging or should I make it worthwhile.
I started reading books. One Day I was in a book store. I saw a book entitled "Start- A -Craft"by Sharon McSwiney, the book is related to learning the basics of card making. I never thought of Crafting before. I am a MBA graduate and always thought these things are for girls who are homemakers…and so do many people in India think..but still I thought I should give it a try. It started just as a time pass. I started collecting materials and equipments to make cards. I started chasing for craft stores. I must say in US people give a lot of importance to crafts, .and this was a blessing for me, as it aroused my interest manifold in this field. I started looking for you tube,google videos etc. so that I can accumulate many more creative ideas related to home decor, women accessories, recycled crafts….the scope is infinite.
Crafting is not all about expertise or skill , it is about creating something. These days when I wake up I don’t wake up dreary, thinking what I ll do the whole day. I wake up with a zeal that I ll create something. I ll do something creative.May be today I ll paint a dull wooden photo frame in bright sparkling colours full of life…make it more glamorous and appealing.May be I ll sell it or give it as a present to someone, but I m sure whosoever will see it will SMILE.
