Color Therapy..

A few weeks back we had to take a personality test in the office. The purpose of it was to understand each others personalities so that we all can work better as a team. Try to see the potential of people and to ignore the obvious negative personality traits in each other. Did it work? Yes to my surprise it is working. I wish we could do the same thing in our day to day lives with family and friends too. Try and forgive each other for the fall outs and admire them for the efforts they make.

In my painting I wanted to express people with different personalities. Some vibrant, assertive, energetic, some soothing, sympathetic, some deep and intuitive, others happy and radiant.
Our life is just like this painting an organized chaos of color, a family of different personalities that come together to complete the picture. Each individual with its own story, own likes, dislikes, positives and negatives. Some compliment each other some stand alone. But we need every one of those colors to make it a spectrum, to make life more FUN.

This is my Color Therapy.

P.S.- I am a big fan of recycling and this is my recycled art. Painted on a reclaimed piece of MDF from my office workshop (which normlly gets tossed in the dumpster).

I want to decorate my daughters room and so started looking out for some easy solutions for wall art. Some of my friends have murals made on the walls in their kids rooms. Murals look great but I want something that is easy to use and is removable (painting on walls is not allowed in my apartment complex). 
Came across these great products that i wanted to share. Wall Decals.

Wall TAT-"Wall Decals are fun, easy to install and compared to other wall finishing and wall decor alternative. Talk about getting maximum visual impact in a very cost effective manner. The best part of all is that you can install them yourself."

Wall Decals are not only cost effective and easy to install, they can be installed on any surface (walls, glass, floors, ceilings, furniture, cars etc.). These are removable too, so changing them for a new decor is easy.
Also saw these great removable chalkboard wall stickers (Chalk-Decals) by For Walls.

"Inspire the artist within by adding an outlet for creative talents on a patterned chalkboard – perfect for adding a little vitality to your home or inspiring your kids writing skills on walls, drawing tables and more. "-for walls.

My Quotable Kid

When kids start talking (even jiberish), don't we all feel that they sound super cute and want to remember them later? Don't we all want to save those words, those pronunciations somehow?

When Saanvi started talking I would write them down sometimes or make a small video clip, but most of the times I didn't. But I do want to remember them later. I stumbled upon this cool book called The Quotable Kid.

Love the idea.

I am making a scrapbook for Saanvi, so i decided to make a scrapbook page of what she keeps saying these days. Like Moi, Moi (to call me) or Bi Bi Papa, C U tomorow and Wiwi (Kiwi) etc.
