My mom used to be an amazing oil painter, and after a long hiatus, she decided to give painting another try. We painted this Kathakali face together on a 12 x 8 canvas :)
For my sisters birthday , I had to get creative with her birthday cake. She’s not a huge fan of cake or chocolate, but she LOVES cookies. I found this amazing cookie recipe. I modified the recipe by cutting the sugar down by 1/4 cup and adding white chocolate chips. I used three cookies and fondant to create this little cookie cupcake for my sister :)
I finally got around to doing a cover of one of my favorite songs Iktara from the movie “Wake up Sid” :)
This amazing song composed by Swanand Kirkire followed the Satyamev Jayate episode on Dowry. Stephen Murray composed the piano track for this unplugged version.
In a nutshell, it means “I’m not a burden on anyones head, I’m a strong woman. I can do it on my own, and I don’t need a marriage at all. This is the time to say no, because no amount of money could ever sell me.” It’s scary to think that these things happen in today’s day and age, and I hope every woman going through something like this can find the strength within themselves.
I recorded this track a couple of weeks ago using my Yeti Blue Microphone.
Today is my sister’s 22nd birthday! I am so proud of my little sis for her amazing experience abroad and everything she’s accomplished so far :) I wish her an amazing year full of bigger and better things!
I also recently celebrated the 25th birthday of one of my closest friends from University!
I had several business cards leftover with my old position on it, so I used them to create these cards.
