The Weekly Story ~ wk 67

Hello my lovelies... Its Monday again... 

Oh.. I forgot to tell you... I got a little feature in the 'Khabar Magazine'... Check page 42 to 50 for the complete article... A huge thank you to Girija who has done a super fabulous job putting this together... Makes me feel like I was having coffee with Kamini, Sudha, Anu and Gagan.... 

Was thrilled to see my home on the first page of the article... thrilled only because my home looks soooooooooooooo much prettier in that image... I was stunned... !!

And then... the peacock wall of my old home... brought back happy memories... of lovely painted walls... I've failed miserably with what I wanted to do this time... Will show you images of the incomplete wall next week... *hides face*

Oh.. and now... back into the week... doing another small post for 'Red is for love'...

Here is a super simple paper craft... All you need is newspaper, stapler or glue and scissors... I showed the girls how to do this once... and then watched as they struggled to get it right... 

I'm not a mean mom... I left them to struggle... only coz it takes them longer that way... and keeps them enthusiastic... till they get it right... 

They made a few of these and hung in the garden and some at home... What do you think?

Definitely simple paper craft, for younger kids...
