Love Personalized Graphics

I have a long long long TO DO list... but not getting enough time to start working on it...

My mom in law is coming to visit us in a month and I am super excited, want to do some good changes in my home before her visit... though i am not sure ill be able to do this with my kids + having in mind that we are going to move to a new place in a couple of months..... still confused... well, lets see...

Now a days hubs is on vacations which simply means NO POSSIBILITY of any CRAFTING WORK... so ill start working on my list only after this weekend..


ok, so today when my kids were sleeping and I got some time to relax and was searching on internet for some graphic sites I came across Widley Tinks it is so kool, thought I should share it. I made this little family graphic using this site.

My Stick Family from WiddlyTinks.com

It is very simple to use, you just have to select the number of your family members, customize graphic, copy html code and paste in your blog... its that simple.

Tip : If you dont want all the links to appear under your grapphic you can always use a print screen option, like this

I also made this one...

These graphics can be used in any sort of any project and its a simple, easy & quick thing.

I will be using them soon... luv it.

have fun

All is well that ends well…

For a long time I wanted to make my kids name initials wall art… M & A to hang on wall

But I couldn’t find wooden alphabets as there is no craft or hobby shop where I live. So I planned to make it with cardboard….


this is what I did…

I typed M & A in word with 900 size.

Cut 2 pieces of each alphabets. 

1. I drew and cut alphabets on cardboard, 2 pieces each.
2. Pasted thick double sided tape on 1 piece.
3. Attached other Alphabet piece on top.
4. Taped well to make shape.

1st Disappointment
I wanted to cover it with wool but it was not strong enough and lost shape so I had to think of something else.

2nd Disappointment
So I covered it with blue color felt with the help of glue gun. I was still not happy with the result as It had a lot of imperfections….

by that time it was already 4:45am so Annoyed I slept with a heavy heart, I had spend so much time on this and the result was not what I was expecting.

Next morning when I woke up, hubs suggested me to cover it with wool or add something else, as it was too simple. I wrapped it with wool and it worked perfectly… I will be making the other A very soon.

Things to keep in mind
1. If you want to make it with wool, take a strong material as a base….

2. covering your alphabets with fabric could be a great and much easier option.

I am planning to make my next Alphabet A with card board but in another way… will be back soon.
have fun

Flashman cuffs & mask


I wanted to treat Mohammad, as he got certificate in school for having “Excellent Knowledge about Islam”… He got his certificate in assembly and now it was our turn… he expected a BIG treat from US…. (trust me these cuffs were only the beginning...)


So I googled and searched on Pinterest & Etsy and got many interesting ideas for boys and planned to make these super hero cuffs.

He loved it…. he was jumping through out the time I was stitching it, whenever I asked him to try the cuff on for size, I got it back after half an hour :)…. He is a hugeeeeee super hero fan…



Now the steps…

I cut,
- 2 Black cloth Pieces,
- 2 Red felt Pieces
- 2 White felt circles
- 2 orange felt flash signs
- 2 sticking tapes (or whatever you call them)

this is how I arranged it.

I hand stitched white & orange felt pieces on red felt.

Before attaching black cloth to felt, stitched sticking tape to cloth.

Stitched black cloth to red felt piece. And Done.


Now coming to the mask, I drew this mask shape on felt and cut it.

Used a black felt piece for backing.

Stitched them. And sandwiched streching elastic in endings. Later I cut the extra black felt and hot glued flash shape orange felt piece & that’s it.
