My husband's birthday was few days back, and i wanted to try out some new technique which i had never tried before. I made this shaker & slide card for him. The color of hearts is same as the shaker, dont know why they both look a little orange in the pic..
The shaker box rolls on the sliding slit using two of the 1-pence coins :D I had fun making this!
I have used some of the scraps from itsy bitsy PP sheets, put stripes in alternate colour & did some free hand cutting around the edges..
& here's a lovely look of my shaker box.. Coated in Red glitter & filled with beads.. I wanted to fill chunky glitter, but while making this box I realized that glitter will work better in square box. It is impossible to arrange ALL the foam pieces together without a single gap in between!! A bangle might just work perfectly for a circular box filled with glitter or any such fine material.
&I love the way this bow has turned out! specially with those tine roses.. They *were* toothpicks!
On another front, my pregnancy is going absolutely fine. I just got back from a "Babymoon" in Edinburgh.. Apparantly the vacation taken normally in mid-pregnancy as a last-couples-only vacation is called babymoon! :) Edinburgh is a lovely place, more like a town than a capital city. The old town has a lovely charm to it with a castle in middle.
Recently I noticed a very surprising thing, my husband gets up with an alarm on his mobile. My baby almost always kicks 5-10 mins after the alarm, like he/she also wakes up by it. Once my hubby had to go late to the office and so the alarm was set for an hour later than the normal time. Courtesy my diligent body clock, I got up at the regular time, but the baby just did not kick!! I felt them only when the alarm buzzed an hour later!! & the same thing happened in Edinburgh as well when obviously the alarm was set for a late time to give us longer sleeps!! :) So many little things happening inside my *huge* body by now! lol! I'm enjoying every bit of being pregnant! :)
