Happy 2013!

Happy new year folks! May this year brings the best for you :)

2012 has been a great year for me as i had my son in the last quarter of the year. He is the most precious gift i have. I look at his face and realize how much i love this little boy.

2012 has been a year that has left me with great memories and a life changing experience. Some of the highlights of this year: I became pregnant and had a lovely boy, we travelled to London for my sisters Wedding, we moved to a bigger apartment, we travelled to Pakistan.

I am not going to make any new year resolutions because i know i'm not going to follow them. But yes i have a to-do list for 2013 in my mind. One of them being to become closer to Allah, and to pray and thank him for his countless blessings. I also plan to travel a bit more this year.

What are your 2013 plans?

DIY: Camera cover

Since i had a baby my regular bag is replaced with the diaper bag, which is crammed with baby stuff. Nappies, wet tissues, extra set of clothes take up most of the space in bag. Carrying a camera bag is not very feasible and putting my beloved camera in the crammed baby bag (or any bag) can put scratches on it. So i came up with the idea of creating a camera sleeve. 

Here are the pictures to get the idea how and what i did. Sorry have no step by step pictures, i was in a hurry to finish it off.

Hope you like it :)

Grab it all!

LO's new activity: grabbing! He grabs onto things brought really close to his hands. He is getting more active and curious with each day. I can see a personality developing in him. Now he is at a stage when crying doesnt necessarily menas he is hungary or sleepy, it may mean he wants to play or being talked to. What a miracle is child development and growing up.

I'm back!

Yes i'm finally back on updating this blog after a long time. The baby is here as you may know, and he is almost 3 months old. He is the cutest thing on this planet. Had a few bad days in the beginning but now we are in a routine, he sleeps well at night with 2 naps during the day. Things are turning out to be great. He has started smiling, talking and grabbing onto stuff. We are going back home in a week, so looking forward to it. It will be LO's first visit meeting the Grandma and cousins.

I have started a private blog as well, where i spend more time. The basic purpose of it is to keep a track of LO's development, milestones and activities. Its mostly full of pictures so dont want to open it up for everyone except family. I might have a book printed of it after years for my son to read.

But i hope to update this blog as well. I will be back with more DIY's :) 

DIY: Hanging garland

I wanted to do this DIY for a long time and finally i did it. Took me on and off three days to finish it. Spent only 30-60 mins each day.
I used coloured papers, craft cutter, string and glue. I'm in love with these colours and quite satisfied the way it turned out. Will be mainly using it as a backdrop for my photoshoots, meanwhile its hanging in the sitting room window.
