Last Christmas & Dil Mera Churaya Kyun

Standard

We always noticed how similar the tunes of Last Christmas & Dil Mera Churaya Kyun from the movie Akhele Hum Akhele Tum were. My sister Sneha & I decided to put the songs together in a little Bollywood Christmas Cover :)

Enjoy the lyrics video!

Standard

I was commissioned to do a pair of very unique Christmas Cards for a San Francisco 49ers fan and a Philadelphia Eagles fan. I did these 5×7 cards using acrylic paints and card stock.

7 days of Christmas Day 6- Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Standard

My mom made this pineapple upside down cake with the help of my sister and myself for a Christmas gathering last weekend. My mom has used this recipe throughout our childhood, and it’s always been a huge hit. If you expand the second image, you can see the recipe that we used, straight from my mom’s old recipe book.

For the Christmas season, I decided to give myself a french manicure. I had a lot of fun using nailpolish to decorate my thumb with a snow flake.

For my fun Christmas sight, I thought I’d attach this picture of my friend’s dog Caeser. Christmas isn’t only for humans it seems!

7 days of Christmas Day 5- Cake Pops!

Standard

Last weekend my friend came over and she brought her cake-pop machine. She also pre mixed everything we needed to make the cake pops, so we just put it all together like we were professional chefs. The results were SO awesome, and were perfectly in theme with our blue and silver Christmas party. For the stand, we wrapped up a styrofoam board in wrapping paper.

Here is our blue and silver Christmas tree! We always sort our ornaments before we put them on the tree, so we get the perfect colour balance :)

7 Days of Christmas Day 2- Christmas Cards

Standard

Here are some fun results from my final Christmas Card order of the season! These were made using Acrylics and gold pen.

When my sister and I went to lunch this afternoon, we bumped into one of the greatest Christmas sights I’ve seen this year! This little caroling group was singing “Winter Wonderland” in front of one of Toronto’s many Christmas trees. The singing was so beautiful, and the outfits were great!

What have been your favourite Christmas sights this year?

7 Days of Christmas Day 1- Marble Cake

Standard

In the 7 days leading up to Christmas, I will be posting 7 fun Christmas creations! For the two Christmas parties I had last weekend, my sister and I made two marble cakes using THIS recipe, replacing unsweetened with sweetened cocoa powder and cutting the sugar by 1/4 cup. They were delicious, albeit a little pale in comparison to the other fancy desserts at party #2.

Two years ago, I spent Christmas and New Years in India. It made me realize how much I absolutely love the Christmas season in Toronto. To appreciate all the effort people put into bringing magic into the city, I’ll try to post a picture of a fun Christmas sighting each day.

Here’s a little Toronto for you to enjoy. This the rotating Swarovski tree at Eaton Centre. There are no words to describe how awesome (or expensive) it is.

Christmas Gift Tags

Standard

For the second Christmas order of the season, I made a dozen individually crafted gift tags. I used acrylic paints and pens on Canson watercolour paper, and tied them up with simple red ribbon.
