Happy Diwali!

Alternately titled: Why I may have a slight addiction to garland/paper flower making.  And to this laughing baby.






{I love when she lets me put kajal on her.  You can't see it but she's also wearing her payal so imagine the sounds of tinkling bells with these pictures.}



Ok, so I really only made two flower garlands and then hung them up right next to each other.  Both are Martha Stewart-style crepe paper flowers.  Orange marigolds and pink lotus flowers.  She has lots of other ideas for flowers on her site, but I really like the way these turned out on garlands.  For the marigolds I just tied the garland string around the center of the crepe-paper instead of using the floral wire and then stringing them all together later.

Nandini, clearly admiring Mommy's handywork.
