Craft-O-Maniac!! Real Me Rewarded

It’s been a year that I’ve been regularly following Reward Me ,by P&G ,not just for browsing over the products ,trying out the sample ,but also being spoilt by them to provide a handy solution for ample of things…To quickly clean up the house in few minutes ,to apply quoted packs for tanned skin or to even use their tips for a healthy lifestyle amongst my busy schedule as a Professional mom!

But recently some 2-3 months back, while browsing one of the sections of Arts & Crafts, took me long behind in those sweet& Innocent memory lanes ,when we used to make Paper boats & float them in stream flowing, or a rocket out of hard paper & flew it with the use of Rubber-bands ,or even a colourful paper game –Tipi –Tipi –Top..What colour you want?? Smile bounced backJ ,Isn’t It?

Could you re-call those innocent days, where in such crafts were just a play time ones…Little did we knew of the creativity involved in it! So while browsing I came across many sweet crafting ideas spread across few occasions as well. But, out of this what I loved the most is “Origami” (Yes, the creative paper folding art), the colourful Yarn Balls & the elegant Raffia Covered vases.

Craft Craft Craft…Here a craft , there a craft ,everywhere Craft Craft 🙂 

1. Creative yet Elegant Vases : Wrapping over natural colour (or you can even paint them as per the colour of your choice) Raffia on vases or Bottle or a Jar gives such an elegant look that you’ll die to craft yourself . Also ,it requires the least items :

      1. A bottle /vase/Jar (easily available)
      2. Raffia
      3. Glue Sticks
      4. Spray sealers for a better strength..

Post covering raffia all over, one can creatively use beads /buttons/paper made roses or similar to decorate it further. Just that much & you can get a great flower vase or even a hanging light ready to decorate & enlighten your roomJ

2. Festive Yarn Balls :
Doesn’t these balls add vivacity to the house or during parties? I had always yearned for these balls but never gave a though to make them ,but yes reward me forced me to think & give them a try. Again with minimal inputs & much of labour, making these balls can be a family fun together.

With the requisites as:

      1. School Glue
      2. Corn Starch
      3. Water
      4. Vibrant or light colored yarns basis the mood you want to set in
      5. Balloons
      6. Sprayer/Spray Paint (to spray & make balls multicoloured)

Just inflate the balloons, prepare mixture of glue ,corn starch & water & dip yarn into it..Then start wrapping around the balloons & let them get dry for 12-24 hrs. Once dries pop up the balloon & here your yarn ball is ready.. You can spray paint & hang in room at different length, or even hang a lamp in it to add more of vibrancy!

3. Conquering the art of Origami:Mastering the Art of folding never felt so inventive & imaginative. From flowers to    animals, to toys, it seems anything & everything can be made out of it! Seen beautiful swans or elephants in hotel rooms..Well that’s also a part of Origami (Ori –Fold, Kami –Paper), takes you through a complete imaginative transformation & happiness from within.
Do master the art by beginning to study from the Origami basics by understanding the lines & arrows & then start creating your animals for your kid or beautiful flowers for your raffle vase or a beating heart (for V Day) by just folding the paper & giving your love a new & afresh look

Oh Mum ,It pains ,scars scares me,I get bouts of silly comments , I’m on the verge of getting called “Endangered Species”, I’ve learnt the lesson ,I’m definitely gonna find some intelligent way out to get rid of these bugs on my oily face .

Ha ha ha…See I’m favoured by all!! I’ve won the battle, me and my many friends are gonna conquer this sweet charming face of yours to play the golf around! My wickedness starts now;)

You wicked devil , pls don’t ..pls don’t play peek –a –boo ,leave me for God’s sake!”

 Well ,I guess ,these fiddly state of affairs ,primarily get the highest degree of attention & are being faced by most of us, we the “Oily Skinner’s” , the best friends of Acne,& this battle of words is a part of daily war without any affirmative sword!

These little Pimples or as I would love to call them “Cunning Balls” (who keep playing on the beautiful ground ) are eminent personalities & famous for immense nasty qualities destructing my lively life vis-

  • High level of Embarrassment in the society – Oh, You’ve got that pimple ; Babes you better be more hygienic ; Are you taking any treatment ?Did you rush to dermatologist? God!! Why the damn I need to answer these people for this havoc created in my life.
  • Attention seekers – Damn sure they make their presence when you gonna plan to put your best foot forward , weighty function or close friend’s marriage (Could be the cause of rejection of Crush;)) ;Last day of exam ( Don’t rejoice ,Now deal with this sticky examination)
  • Superb timings to show their presence – Immediate hiring – MBA’s to prepare database & populate the tragedy graphs pertaining to rejected proposals ,Offers due to these vicious creatures 😉
  • Devastated Confidence level – Ahh, it ensures the aura of inferiority complex & a sad ,gloomy face
  • Ample of Pain,  with dots of Blood -Terrible feeling, filthy on seeing Blood oozing out..yak!
  • Remains as reminiscent Scars – (Tum nahi bhula paaoge) ,How can we forget them ,when scars are their immediate successors ?

& where is my Selfie mode gone? Gone for the moment as they do ensure we are laughed at!!Ahh, I’m sure no one will deny this maliciousness in this world. But how the hell we wish to come out of them , ghastly feeling even after trying & GPS’ing numerous dermatologists ,spending some thousands ,ACNE’s are your permanent companion ,it’s just the frequency of their handshake goes from weekly to quarterly ,but yes ,they haven’t forgotten the “Special you” 😉

ACNO-pedia – Science & Reasons behind ACNE –

  •  In general ,it is basically an infection resulting from blocked pores resulting from (less you allow your skin to breathe ,the more dangerous it can be) accumulation of sebum from notorious sebaceous gland & followed by those amazing bacteria which grow on them & result in inflammation!
  • Nature as Breeder: The weather also plays a havoc in breeding these ACNE’s,High humidity ,allergens in the changing weather ,extreme low temperatures are perfect time for them to break out!
  • Intelligent Human as Breeder: Stress ,an important factor miss balancing hormonal regulation with anti effect on Immune system ,Those tongue relished delicious Junk food with high Glycemic index as high sugars or starch or carbs ,greasy food,play as ICING ON THE CAKE 😉
  • Thanks to the high pollution & CO2 , NO & other oxides level’s in our city air ,the quantum of dust & particulate matter ,which helps the pores to clog & in popping out those pesky balls,& we ,the feminine always eager to wear those heavy makeups ,not allowing the skin to breathe creating a perfect ground for the ZIT players;)

So the very much heard of Quote “Prevention is better than cure” goes out for these ZITS ,better follow some serious tips as-

  • Do keep your face clean ,wash it frequently
  • Moisturize with products that minimize dryness or have non-comedogenic label
  • Sparingly use those heavy make ups , Natural looks retain your beauty girls 🙂
