Hello everyone!!
 Here we introduce our new DT members on board..

We are happy to welcome these 3 new ladies on our team,cant wait to start working with them,i am so excited and hope you all will be excited too and join me welcoming the talented ladies.

Now get to know little more about them and their crafting experiences 


'' Hey friends! I'm Sindhura, known to some of you as Sindhu. I started crafting and blogging just over 6 months ago and it's been a roller coaster ride already! I'm basically a card maker and I found myself trying out different kinds of fancy fold cards. I find crafting very therapeutic and find myself in a different world altogether when I make cards and stuff.

I LOVE craft supplies and am tempted to buy everything I come across! :D I love to use pearls, flowers and lace trims on my cards but I'm also a lover of CAS. 

Well... other than crafting, I have a 9 to 6 job, the reason for my disappearances from the craft world occasionally! :) 

 Want to take this opportunity to thank Kavitha for selecting me to be on the design team. '' For the love of crafting'' is very close to my heart since it is the first challenge blog I came across when I started crafting and also happened to be the first challenge I entered. :)

I also want to thank everyone who supported and encouraged me, who always left me some love by commenting on every single post I made (including my parents and hubby). It's because of you people that I'm still crafting! :) 

Let us all have fun :)

Hi all!!

First of all let me thank Kavitha for giving me this beautiful oppurtunity. I’m really honoured to be a part of her Design Team (DT). Thank you so much again!

Well.. I’m Deepti Stephens. I did my BDS but I felt like there was something  missing in my day to day life.. I felt like I just want to kill my monotony and I did it!! Since our family is full of NGOs and Social activists, even my hubby too, I joined their group and started helping the poor and needy. Then one day I realized that I have a great passion towards arts and crafts. Despite my busy schedule I still manage to squeeze time to make cards, videos and take part in social activities.  J

My card making style is Clean And Simple but I’m trying my hand on different styles and techniques and I’m striving for perfection. Besides crafting I love to read books, singing, writing stories, playing guitar and composing songs. J

Apart from helping and taking part in social things, I would like to say one thing! Crafting is my Passion.. Crafting is my Profession.. That’s all buddies. Thank you.. J

Hi all,
I am Nupur Priya, from Mumbai. Art & Craft is the first love of my life. I have been sketching, painting & crafting for as long as I can remember. My wonderful parents, siblings & my husband always encouraged & support me in every way possible. 
After graduation I did my Advanced Diploma in 3D Animation. 

I was introduced to this amazing blog land by my sister & it opened a whole new world of crafting to me...& rekindled my love for crafting.
I don't have any fixed style of crafting as I keep on trying & learning new techniques which reflects on my projects...
Few months back I started taking craft classes & have opened an online craft supply store.

Looking forward to this new experience of sharing my love for crafting with so many passionate crafters...  :)
