At Home...

Vacationing is a hard job too... with temple visits , engagements functions , shopping for trips, and so on... !!

The best part is that we get to spend it with family...
I could spent the entire vacation just playing with cousin's adorable 9 month old twin girls !!! Will post their pics soon...

Meanwhile, I have plans to visit some shops which supply beads and other stuff, for my jewelry making..

Also a visit to the famed Hill palace Museum, a trip to the Fort Kochi area and a few more usual haunts are to be squeezed in ...!!!

A - Z Challenge ..My Reflections...

One thing I definitely know about this challenge, is that it was meant to be - for me.. !

I just happened across the challenge just a day before it was to start.. so preparation was NIL. I actually did not have any idea as to what I would be posting about.

 Upon ..Ahem... reflection...., I decided to stay true to the posts that I was already doing on the blog...it is a new blog..and I had been posting about the jewelry I make, my Cold porcelain experiments, some tutorial links that I had tried out and the result of my attempts, Book reviews , and introduction to some fabulous artists..

..maybe if I attempt the challenge next year, I would be better prepared with a theme..

Amid st a lot of personal turmoil, I stuck to the decision to complete the challenge..and I have to say that I feel a sense of satisfaction for having done so.
