Shruti..firstly happy friendship day…secondly its great that you got a sponsor and all that…way to go..and thirdly….(hold your breath!) I managed to make the fish aquarium with finger painting which you had put up ages ago on activities with your child…we did it..yes..me the most non artistic person in this whole wide world….I sat and did it with R..and thank you so much for the idea…will post the pic on my blog soon..thank you thank you 🙂 btw..it didnt turn out to be as stunning as yours….but pretty good for a first attempt :)”
Abha who ate as many pistachios it would take to make crafty phools with Cub.


I am writing to you for the first time (I have commented on couple of your blogs though ), my name is Usha and I have a 1 year 10 month old daughter. I have started doing arts and crafts with her to keep her busy on weekends, and I have bookmarked your website for ideas. I have already done quite a few arts based on your ideas and thought you would like to have a look. I wanted to thank you for sharing your ideas, my creativity is almost zero, so wanted my baby to take a liking for arts and crafts. Since she is still very young, I have stuck to hand prints mostly. I wanted to write this on your wall, but didn’t know how to upload these pictures of crafts that I have done with my baby. So sending you an email instead. I hope you like them!
A big fan 🙂
