My bandera party was on sunday. I had planned a lunch and beer thing and by the time enough people landed up, it was evening. can’t blame them though, I was glad they didn’t arrive on time. The Mr. Big concert took a lot out of me. all that screaming and shoving. Anywho, we managed to finish 9 banners in one hour. I cut cut red & white kite paper onto little rectangles and made maida(flour) glue. I had bought some recycled plastic bag string(1km-Rs. 70! at avenue rd) for this purpose. Although it was twisted and made it slightly difficult to paste the flags in one direction, it wasn’t half bad to use. I quite like how they’ve turned out. Can’t wait to put them up on the 13th(nov). yaay!



engagement party!

So! I’ve been planning this super awesome ( I’m hoping) party in three months and I’ll be posting ideas and stuff as I go along. ooOOOoo soo excited.

We’ve got an outdoor do planned, in my modest garden and veranda. one of my biggest worries till now has been bugs and mosquitoes(god I hate them!) Until I stumbled on this tutorial on Design*Sponge that is.


They’re home-made citronella candles that keep bugs at bay. plus I’ve got a bunch of pointless containers that will be happy to have purpose as candle tins.

I’m also making this ultra easy banners to wrap house in. Although I doubt you’ll get those iron sticky thingies, I’m just going to stitch them. Here’s the tutorial on paper n stitch.


Where Am I?
