DIY- on how to jazz up jute bag

Most of the time while going for shopping i try to carry my own bag,there are various hazards of plastic bag which everyone knows,some of the shops dont provide with carry bags so that buyers get their own bags,while some charge for the plastic bags,
when i was in Delhi plastic bags were banned and jute bags were in for shoppin but still most of the shopkeepers kept polythene as shopped were too lazy to get their own i really dont understand this after all government had passed this rule for benefit of us,.isnt it?
this is how i did
today i jazzed up this jute bag which had company name written on it.

have painted some alphabets just left ARTIS and with help of straight stich made T.
have attached star and a small bell,added some sequins ,..thats all.
This bag can be used for grocery shopping,for library or to just keep my craft material.

On a different note The Key Bunch team is on with giveway of Wise Tote from Clean Planet,
Do chekc out clean planet for some cool ecofriendly products i specially liked the Tote Pal.
Nugget of Wisdom - If we keep waiting for others to do something,it wont happen
                                  If we keep thinking we will do it later ,it wont happen
                                  If we have to do something we have to do it today and now
                                  Nothing can be achieved by just talking
                                  Everything can be achieved by doing.

Thats all frens,..ceeu all soon,..:-)

Cupcake Tanktop to match the accessories

Most of the time we feel that day by day we are getting older ,we dont have any right to do certain things like wear cute clothes and feel good,as we have passed that age,even i used to feel that way then one fine day this realization dawned on me that why to think we are getting old and feel old after all this is just one life which we have to live as if today is the last day,without wasting even a second,..:-)

Coming back to todays post i bought this cute cupcake necklace and bracelet for myself,.the day i bought i had promised myself that i will paint a top to match the accessories , noon when Advay was busy with his toys i took out my craft material and created this for myself,..looks cute isnt it,.;-)
I have tried my best to match with the cupcake charm in the bracelet above .
To create this things needed
tank top white colour
fabric colour pink,yellow and brown
draw a rough outline on a paper
draw the same on tshirt
keep a cardboard underneath the surface to be painted
colour with fabric colour.

thats all cute cupcake tank top is ready to be worn,.:-)

I bet everyone has some place special in their home where they feel good ,comfy and cozy,:-) that space is the much needed space where they can just sit back and relax and take a break for few minutes,or do things which they like to do the most isnt it,.?

I write my blog post of the time in the night before going to sleep,this is the space where i sit back,relax ,with cup of cofee or hot chocolate with marshmallows and do things which i like to do be it blogging,reading book ,listening to  music be it anything,
On the corner table i have Ganesha statues which gives me immense strength
pot pourri of rose in a small bowl which freshens me up
