Mixed Media Collaged Tags..

Have you ever felt that "urge" to complete a project
and your heart is just racing to your work table and wanting to continue to work
on it?
This was what happened to these tags.
And even though
I've been busy at work
and also
making preparations for my trip,

I had to complete them...

Have a good week ahead!
got to go!!

stay happy! :)

Tea Tuesday

 Kimmie  is the hostess for Tea Tuesday and I must say that ever since

I've started posting, I've learnt to 

make time for my cuppa.

Thank You Kimmie and the Tea Tuesday bloggers!

And at the end of a busy work day,
I look forward to reading all your postings with my cuppa..

Today's tea is green tea

(This "phoenix tea mug" is made from purple clay  
PS: I never knew much about its role in chinese tea appreciation until recently :)
guess I was attracted to this unique design ;)  )

and I had it in the garden with one of my favorite books written by

and here's a page from this inspiring book....

Happy Tea Tuesday!!

Let's Celebrate Life!!

I want to remember
the preciousness of life
and so
when I sewed this little heart today,
I had to include this "catch phrase"..

and Chester agrees with me too....

remember the sewing project which accompanied Chester?
Well, here it is!!
I made this hand-quilted bag with the guidance from Jenny,
my quilting teacher.

And here's Chester, with his friend Molly all set for an outing together.... 

Molly is an 11 inch mohair teddy bear who loves to adorn herself with pretty 
little things...

Rumi, writes the most beautiful poems and here's a quote 
which I may have posted previously;
it brings a smile each time I read this...

"The eye is meant to see things,
the soul is here for its own joy."

Happy Sunday!!!

Happy June!!

How quickly time flies!
and we're in the middle of the year already?
Recently I've been taking stock of all the projects I wanted to start or complete...
I wish for more time... :)
There's so much I want to do......

And here's a quote from Torkom Saraydarian

"Wherever joy is, there can also be seen the presence of beauty, 
goodness, righteousness and freedom"

I am so looking forward to the weekend!

Stay happy!
