4 o'clock Stitch : Fresh Toffees Bag

It's a tradition in my son's school, that on a birthday, the student can only distributes toffees. Usually the b'day boy/girl will go to each section of his class and to the teachers & the principal. It's very cute to watch them walking gingerly towards the teachers' room and all the teachers will greet them "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

So, my son's been telling me that he has to take toffies today and some bowl to put the toffies in. I was thinking to send one of my plastic containers for him to put the toffies in, but then last night before sleeping I had this idea "why not making something like a bag" and I remember seeing one bucket bag in ayumill blog. So after sehri today, I just got down to work and voila...the toffees he can carry his tofees in style..

Now, I better wake him up and get him ready for his school....;)

Thanks for stopping by...& have a nice day

Indian Chai

Chai or Indian Milk Tea becomes my favorite. I love Chai esp. when added with cardamom & ginger. Here's my simple recipe I got from a friend.

1 cup of fresh milk
1 cup of water
sugar to taste
tea leaves (approx. 2 tsf)
ginger (crushed)


1. Mix the milk and water in a pan and leave it till boiling
2. Add tea leaves, sugar, cardamom & ginger
3. Lower the flame and leave it for few minutes till you get the desired colour. The colour should not be too light. If needed add another tea spoon full of tea leaves.

Now, put your feet up and let's enjoy our chai...^_^

Thank You

It's only one week left for my Giveaway...I'm very excited my self..:) I know, I should advertise it abit. But right now I'm quite busy and it's nearing the festival season so there are lots of things to get done in advance.
Anyway, taking advice for you all, I'm trying out a new way of showing off my tunics. I'm taking it outdoor and with life model. I'm so nervous my self...but I always have to reshoot the photo over and over again, in the end I have lots of tunics waiting to be listed. I wish I could afford to hire a professional photographer :D

Anyway, I was hanging around in the Etsy community looking for clues..and found this great site about photography tips. Table Top Studio has almost everything from how to shoot jewelry to clothes.

So here are few of my trial and error. It's still a very very far from perfect, so....please please leave your comments..I'd really love to hear from you...

All these tunics some already there in the shop and I will add more soon.

Thank you very much for you who submitted your entries..wishing you all the best. Well, I really can get use to away my craft I mean. Since there are lots of festival to celebrate in India and in fact, the festivals season is just maybe - just maybe - I will have another giveaway soon...:D

Thanks for reading this....have a nice crafty day
