Envelope DIY

Happy Holi Sweethearts!! I know, you will trace the path with a zeal of learning something new and creative, because gifting seasons never ends right? I have shown DIY(s) most of the times, but hardly anyone can reach it….. So I am preparing for all of it, so that you can get a segregated section for everything I show in my blog; since I have so much creativity filled in me to share with you…. I know you too have got it :)

To start with, you just have to collect these materials:

  1. Gift wrapping paper or Decorative paper
  2. Plain colored paper or colorful craft paper
  3. Envelope templates (print, cut & use here:  printable envelope template)
  4. Pencil for tracing
  5. Scissors
  6. Glue

Method:

With the help of template, trace out the boundary on decorative paper

IMG_0604Cut the decorative paper

IMG_0605Fold accordingly and paste it

IMG_0606Also cut a smaller portion of the given template (as shown in second photo from top), trace out the boundary on craft paper

IMG_0607Cut the colorful craft paper and fold accordingly, insert it in bigger envelope and paste on it

IMG_0610Tadaa!! It’s done… yesss done by you! You can reverse the papers e.g. you can take plain craft paper for envelope and decorative paper for internal good looks. Now you can make envelopes for greeting cards, marriage or birthday or baby shower invitation cards or just when you are free and feel like making some handmade envelopes.

IMG_0611 IMG_0612I will come up with more DIY(s) and ping you in facebook.com/crimsonapril4me. You have got something to share too? Keep me posted, I will share it in the blog. God bless and may you enjoy all the festivals in the world happily with your near & dear ones.

walked Street full of Joy, Bagging Style!

Hey people! I am sure as of yet you have bagged in many interesting fun trips and experiences to share with in n number of ways. But in case of me, I bagged up a startup (well known) artist.

So here it goes…A while ago, I went to an event where I came across many startup stalls and I was passing on in a fast pace, don’t know why. But then something shiny (leather) caught my eyes. So I took five steps back and finally met One among the startups with a name  Mr.Sudhir Arora. I know, I know it sounds like meeting someone from the Bollywood industry (the name suggests so), but I guess since I know him not in that genre, so can’t say….. But the genre I saw him in, is not too far from that too. He has started up (in October 2011) with his interest  in handbags and accessories line, that are extremely stylish with fresh design, supreme quality and excellent finesse.

And right behind the display, got Sudhir’s smiling and welcoming gesture, and behind him I saw a BIG banner written

199_379102965499298_370129956_non it. When I asked more about it, Sudhir mentioned “JoyStreet started as a label with the mission statement

‘To spread joy with style'”.

393745_217686761640920_490226500_nThe entire collection is awesome….Isn’t it?

And what is different in it? “JoyStreet is a brand that is being run with a lot of heart. It is all about  joyous experience for everyone and we do this by creating original styles that are high fashion, the best workmanship in the industry, and more than anything by providing a very humble and professional service to our clients.”

So when I actually held the bag and felt the shiny, smooth leather. My brain was yelling out loud ‘WoW!! Such a superb workmanship’. Hence I could not resist and I purchased it… not then and there but in bestylish.com. Yes Sir, they are all over the e-commerce retailing and are tied up with styletag.com, snapdeal.com, yebhi.com, fashionandyou.com and many more are in pipeline. So when I showed interest to have both of them (Sudhir & Joystreet) in my blog…. The rest is (not the history)… it’s present right here ;)

403543_401655379910723_1402862348_nI am pretty sure….you might have seen these, cuz it so popular right from Joystreet.

And while going through much more details about Joystreet, I got to know that “In the last one year of our operations, we have been frequently featured in various publications like Grazia, Times of India, I Diva, Time Out and mainstream news like DNA Vanity Fair to name a few” my eyes widened.

Then, “Online, we have appeared on bpbweekend, strut120 etc. And all of this completely through word of mouth publicity owing to our strong product and before-and-after sales service” after reading this I ran out of words and was completely awestruck. Because now I really felt as if I lost the chance of getting more in contact with such a personality who…… might have some connection with Bollywood.

Well people, I don’t know if you know about 6 degree separation, but to tell you frankly no matter who you are and with whom you are connected to (in terms of celebrities), your own potential and hard work with full dedication and passion, says a lot about you.

So I would highly recommend you to shop in Joystreet because “we got wide variety of handbags, wallets, clutch, sling bags, belts for Women which range between INR1500 to 8000. And in this year the label will include Menswear and Kidswear bags and accessories categories too, making it the ultimate fashion accessories brand for all”. In his own words and sweet smile.

Real Deep Dive Link

Hey all! It’s Friday and I know you all are very happy about the coming weekend. I am still planning what to enjoy doing more. Well in my case, I either apologize for not being regular in posting blogs or make promises for posting blogs regularly :)  But today I want to introduce an issue which you all are aware of, but just not stepping ahead.

It’s been more than 3 years, since I am here in Pune, but hardly in touch with real people out there. So I jumped into taking parts in events, where I can have the liberty to interact with interesting identities. One of the experiences that I am eager to share with you today is ‘Innovation Jam Pune’ (conducted once in a year). The session started from 1st to 3rd March ’13 at ThoughtWorks, Pune. I loved the ambience of the company, comfort & good care that they took of us (participants) and got to know many just after a sweet Hi!

The event’s motto was to let join bright minds together and build an innovative bizz plans. We were 35 in total (divided in team chosen by us) and given 48hrs. of time (for deriving a business startup from a given theme) to ignite the mental spark big time.                 Birender & Aditya (face of the comapany ThoughtWorks) were mentors and our mental fire extinguishers :) So we started discussing….

more discussion….more discussion…started to turn up towards giving a shape to mental capabilities…We had internal excitement, enjoyment, competition, exchange of mixed feelings etc.But all in all, more than the effort put on the innovational concepts, we experienced the sweet sense of togetherness.And on the third day, when final leaving is on the part of the chapter, saying “be in touch” are the words that expressed the feeling of never let go of such a nice company.Everybody is into socializing and it seems to be a never ending scenario. Through internet, your friend list is exceeding 200 but still it’s not enough for you. Don’t you think, it feels greater when you see & hear your friend’s laugh rather than liking on their smiling pretty face? I am attached to only 100 souls through internet, but deeply I feel void. I chat but can’t express feelings, I like but can’t sense it totally, I comment but it sounds to be unheard. Are you feeling the same?I suggested many to go out, get in touch with most of your city. But, I know what is holding you back viz. shyness, lack of time, you will say “I am an introvert…. doesn’t like to mix well with others” etc. etc.        Frankly speaking, first few seconds you are strangers but as soon as you say Hi or receive a Hello, you get sudden sense of knowing that person. So get out!! ;) And dive into the real world connection.

419717_289886994410859_504878908_nI would like to thank the far & friendly minds who started the whole concept of Global Service Jam (founded on 2010) Markus & Adam, the entire team of ThoughtWorks including Aditya & Birender, My team mates Suganth,Vivek & Santanu. Those names, I remember with whom I exchanged a short & sweet friendly gestures Shaifali, Pari, Nidhi, Khushbu, Dubinsky,  Mandeep, Pratik, Ashish, Ketan and those pretty unaware names whom I respect a lot for their participation. Most importantly, I would love to thank the site eventbrite.com that brought me to have the best 3days time spent with the above, absolutely lovely personalities. Thank you all for reading this long & strong blog :)…. Once in a while I blog so I guess it’s worth the patience right ;) Would love to have your contribution for facing the live world. Till then Adios!!
