Spring Swap, Hop +Giveaway Aditi & Preety

Spring is here and boy we love it! Sometime back, a crafty friend Nuneka, asked us if we would be interested in being a part of a crafty swap, and we said yes! Scroll down to the end of the post for the hop details and a giveaway!

Today is the day when we finally reveal our creations. A little about the swap- we formed a small crafty group and we were each assigned a partner. We had to create something for our partner and keep it a secret. Our projects travelled across the globe and we spread some crafty love.

In this post, I, Aditi, will reveal the project that I created for my partner Preeti Dutta. I wanted to create something that she not only treasures but also can use. Hence I made her a journal. I bought a blank sketchbook and designed the covers using mixed media. Preeti told me she loves Blues and Greens and that was perfect as those were spring colours. The phrases that I used on the cover are not just motivational but also go with the spring blossom. Check the video link below for more.

I also made a card to go along with it.

    Hey sweetie,
    Your work is just fabulous. I really love how this journal book turned out. You are so creative and kind my friend. I am so much busy watching all the 12 blogs, and it’s taking much time to read while having baby on my lap, but it’s worth it because it allows to see these so wonderful lovelies and their handmade art pieces which are full of love and magic. I really love to join for such a crazy swap too.
    Thank you so much for all these amazing ideas and creative tips.
