Gift for my friend's son

My good friend is going to be celebrating her son's birthday. He is a Fall season baby. I really want to do something special for him. There is this family tree that I want to make for him. Maybe modify a little to fit the fall theme. Don't know how much time this project will take, but I am sure it will be lot of fun to do. Planning to use polymer clay to do this project and customize it with the fall colors. I think making custom gifts like this makes the occasion special. Let me see if I am able to make it at all in time for the b'day. Will update this blog accordingly. Wish me luck.The inspiration came from this fab blog. Check out the wall art made with cardboard -

Truly inspired

This is the first day of my blog. I am not a great writer or celebrity. I am just your ordinary girl next door my ordinary life - job, family, friends and all. off course this would have gone for years until something happened that got me thinking - today steve jobs death got me thinking (check out this truly cool inspiring article here )...I am one and there are so many more like me excepting the life as they have it, hiding and in some cases even trying to shut off the spark in them, the inspiration to do something true to themselves, something that makes them who they are....many reasons, in many cases completely valid reasons, but stop, wait and think !! Everyone's time on earth is limited, so ask yourself - "what will you do with the time that has been given to you" (inspiration from Lord of the Rings). Don't let that spark die, God has given each of us a gift, to share to express and most of all to enrich our lives. so this day, by the grace of Lord Ganesha , (I am a big believer and he is your guy for all the auspicious beginnings) I am starting this blog to express that spark of creativity and to ask you all to contribute to mission of inspiring the creative mind ....a little each day. dedicating this blog to the fertile minds....and to the creative spark in each one of us.....

My aim...share bit and pieces of interesting information, art, articles, comments, tips once a week atleast or when ever creative inspiration strikes ....

Here is my first mixed media creation for the blog, this piece of art is a gift for my aunt -
