Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Ashwini, a software engineer by profession, and a card-maker by hobby.
I am based in Bangalore, work in a software company and hold a BE degree in Information Science. I have loved crafts since I was a little girl, when we used to cut paper into dolls and make garlands! Its amazing how many forms paper can take, with folding, cutting and coloring! I used to make flowers out of paper and plastic, which my Ma used to collect just for me, to decorate vases in my house! And my love for paper only increased in the last few years, as I started card making.
My sister introduced me to Pinterest in 2013, which is when I came across scrapbooking and card making. After trying a little, bit of scrapbooking, I realized that it was not for me – we took photos so rarely in my family, that it was impossible to scrapbook!! But I wasn’t to be let down – I tried a little bit of art journaling, making tags, and then came across card making. Now, that was just the thing for me!
I began card making late late 2013, started this blog in May 2014, when I thought to share my little talents. Although, most of the cards I’ve made are for challenge submissions, I do make cards to share with friends and family on those special occasions :). For me, it is really fun and relaxing!
The ‘etc’ in the blog title is for my other crafty projects – a mixed media Art Book, stitching, and wall arts to name some.
