Give it a Thought…

NEVER MAKE FUN OF OTHERS.

You know nothing about his/her position in front of the Lord. If He decided to catch you on that act of yours, you will become the BIGGEST JOKE in the WORLD.

Pick a Prop and Strike a Pose!

Props on stick are in fashion these days. Good for me! I get to try new ideas and people are happy with their props. 😉

I loved making these props. Though I did not get to keep much of them but still, when people accepted them with open hands, I was super excited 🙂 . I made face masks, dialogue balloons, mustaches, glasses, pirate hats, monster mouth and Dracula teeth (my favorite).

Montessori Training-Projects

In this post, I am going to share some of the projects with you that me and my fellows had the experience to make, in our Montessori training. The time to decide ‘what to make’ was kind of hard. We had to choose something different, something that has not been done before, something ‘zara hut ke‘… I don’t think so, we quite reached up to all that, but  we tried our hardest and we gave our best. The rest we left to Allah.

With all the tough routine, exams, quizzes, assignments, practicals, 4 art folders  (did I miss something…) ah yes, cultural files. :), no doubt, it was tough, but we learned numerous things. We not only learned about how to teach and groom children but also how to groom ourselves. Montessori training is not just for children but for you too. Time consuming plus mind consuming 😉 but  worth it.

Back to projects. Submitting these projects was not the end, we were to give presentation (no big deal with that), but we were to give it to an empty class, full of nothing but projects. And we had to pretend that we were giving the presentation to a bunch of children (asking questions, getting answers) all on our own. Of course our teacher was there, marking us, while we were making a fool of ourselves. 😉

You must be waiting for the projects, so here it goes:

Lets start with my project. ‘3 DIMENSIONAL SHAPES’. I enjoyed a lot, working on this project. Making and finding the 3 dimensional shapes, around the house was quite a fun game for me. 😉

Here is a visual view of all the projects, starting with mine:

I am going to end this post with my personal favorite project. ‘THE WESTEND BAKERS’. I tried to capture it from all angles. Now this is what you can say a ‘zara hut ke’ kind of project. Look at the detailing, the small cute things, aren’t they adorable?

Have a look from other angles:

Hope you like the post and that it gave you ideas to make some of your own. Just remember to make the presentation interesting and catchy so that the children not only learn things but also enjoy it to the fullest. This way you will have your full satisfaction too.

Wish you the best. Good day.

Box Organizers

“Don’t agonize. Organize.”

Isn’t it good to find your stuff right where you left them? I think it is. Keeping things organized really assists you and not just in keeping your place clean but it also saves you from stress and fear of loosing your belongings, and overall it improves your lifestyle.

I made some box organizers to keep my belongings in order and in place, so, when I need them I can find them without much hustle and bustle.

Here is one I made for jewellery.

Well, the box with drawers was already handy, I just covered it up with some sheets and used some glitter on top and then just filed it up. 🙂

For ring drawer, I used tissues and rolled them up in order to fix the rings in between them.

 

For other drawers, I similarly, covered the base and filled them up. 🙂

 

The next one is the ‘box in box’ organizer.

I personally love this one. It really helps me to keep my stationary and crafting stuff right where I can find them. See? 🙂

Lastly, we have…………………….this:

 

A very own box for handmade cards. 🙂

A good system shortens the road to your goal similarly a clean room and organized stuff can save time and shorten your path to ‘your goal’.

Have a good day and get organized. 🙂

Order for Two

Its been quite a time, since I uploaded anything about, in the crafting corner. So, here it is: not long after I decided to make card making official, I got my first orders! 2 orders! Yeah!!

One was for a little baby turning ‘2’. She also happens to be my niece, cousin’s angel :). The order was from her grandmother and she said something like acha sa koi ho. I was so nervous, I mean there were billions of ideas to work with but what if…. This what if kills us at so many places 😉

So anyway, I finally completed the card and handed it over to the ‘grandmother’. Everyone liked it. Thank You, God! Here is an image of it.

From outside it was like this but this is not all. It got a surprise inside.

Ta-da!!

A pop up of flowers bouquet. I followed a tutorial on youtube. It turned out, pretty close. 🙂

Next up, is the card of Congratulations on promotion.

It also got a surprise inside.

Same idea but it is for two different families, so I guess, it will be a surprise after all.

🙂 Enough for now.

I miss you, Friend

Why do you have to be so far away?

Instead of here with me.

 

I miss all the times we have spent together,

All through the laughter and pain you were there.

 

Now though you are far away,

You will always reside in my heart.

 

But still sometimes I want you here,

So we can goof around and have fun like we used to…
