My offering to lord ganesha (Satin ribbon hibiscus)

Festival of Lord Ganesha is coming So I asked Nirmala(My teacher), if we can do something to please him .

She smiled and Said, "It will be my pleasure" .I knew something great is about to take shape :).

In most of the cases she picks up paper but this time she took satin ribbon. Later she asked to get some rice & I was like "Are you sure?". I had no option but to give her everything she asks for. Her next demand was a handkerchief. I was in hurry so I couldn’t help myself asking "Is there anything else you need?" .

She Smiled a big smile and asked to me come in evening. After yet another boring day in my office I revisited her.

This time She gifted me something I couldn't take my eyes off.

It was a flower of hibiscus, "God Ganesha's Favorite flower"

If you need one just comment it below ,I will courier it to you.

Handmade Solawood Garland

Mrs. Nirmala (My teacher) thought me another Amazing arrangement .But this time it was not a paper but a wood. Yes It’s called Solawood .I didn't think of creating flower using wood. My first question to my teacher was "How is it possible?" .

After some days Nirmala come up with this wood and I was like ... wow.

The process of making bud is extremely simple and anyone can do it.(will post video tutorial soon).

It all started by creating a single Solawood Jasmine bud.
Paper Flower

After few minutes there were many buds.
Paper Flower
Total 75 buds are needed to create Garland out of it. I did it and it was fun doing it :). At last I finished 75 buds .Did little bit of coloring .
It was a time to tie them together. I handed them over to Nirmala. (You guessed it right)She is the Master Moreover I didn't want to make it worse by tying it myself :).

But there is always a another way of doing it .You give these buds to any garland makers and they will do it for you :) .

Finally I got the beautiful garland made out of Solawood .

Paper Flower

My teacher told me a funny incidence about Solawood garland. Back in 90's, She used to make these garland. At one fine day she decided to give it to her friend .It was her birthday. Her friend took it and wore it for the day. Next day she kept it in fridge thinking it’s a real jasmine garland J . The next day she wore it again. Every day she kept on following the same routine .Two weeks passed and now she started feeling something fishy about it. She asked the teacher and Nirmala revealed the secret :) .

Make it once and use forever.

100% Organic Snake (Mr. Snaky).

When teacher asked me to create something 100% percent organic .I was puzzled for a while. I m used to modern craft material like glue, scissors & colors.Creating something which is 100% organic seems almost impossible for the first time. Day passed and nothing happen. The next morning I decided to walk for a while .I was passing by a street and suddenly stopped. Saw a snake like thing.

Eureka ,I got it.
It was a part of The Palmyra Palm tree. I picked it up. Used prayer/rosary beans for eye portion. The difficult part was to stick the beans. Thankfully we have a big drumstick tree. A little cut and I got the glue I was searching for.

In the end Snaky got its final shape.

It was fun playing with it. We were all laughing when Mr. Chameleon got scared of snaky .
I got it captured hope you like it too.

First I placed snaky on top of Drumstick tree(Yes it’s the same tree I got the glue from).

I waited for a while .Here comes Mr. Chameleon.

After couple of minute Mr. Chameleon wasn't there anymore.

Handmade Flower Creeper

I was very excited when Nirmala was going to teach creeper arrangement. Making the leaves was the first mammoth target. Tying flowers together with leaves is also very time consuming. However all the efforts seems worth when I look at the final product. I loved the making of cute little flowers that goes with the creeper.

Here is the Final Product Hope you like it.

Hang them anywhere and they definitely catch your attention. They look great in my bedroom.

Rebirth of Mr George the Biggest tortoise .

Its very sad to hear about loss of George.The biggest tortoise.The only remaining Pinta Island tortoise.
Check out this News.

As Gita says Death is as sure for that which is born, as birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.

I was roaming around the farm and look what i got. We Indians believe in rebirth .Is this a rebirth of The great George ? :).

But this time he born the tiniest.

He was so tiny i think my mother's toe is bigger than him.

Look he is seating on top of my chocolate wrapper.
