The Seed Bookmark

100 Happy Days – Day 87

My uncle was showing us around Lawrence School, Lovedale where he gives guitar lessons to the students. After almost an hour of wandering around the huge, beautiful place, we decided to visit one last area and call it a day.

As we were descending the stairs, I came across these dried twigs with tiny tulip-shaped buds in the end. Something creative came to my mind and I grabbed a handful of those twigs. I wanted to collect more. But I wasn’t sure that I could carry them safely back home. They looked dried and brittle.

After I reached home, I was dejected to find that many of those seeds had fallen off. Yet, I decided to go forward with my plan. After around an hour, I was too happy with myself. I made one set which I have kept aside for a certain purpose. I noticed another twig with just a bunch of seeds on the tips. I worked on that and voila! 😀

I painted it with an intention to make myself a bookmark:

It was later on I realized that, they were Eucalyptus seeds.

Day 15 – Choosing Colours

100 Happy Days – Day 15

Happiness is buying craft supplies

I love colors. I love choosing colors, imagining different combination of colors. So I am always ready for doing anything related to clothes, paints, artwork etc.

Today, when I was feeling a bit low, I decided to do something I had been putting off for a while. Buy some craft supplies.

I went over to the shop and grabbed some color charts & quilling papers.

Some time soon, I’ll work on my quilling and before you know, I’ll be posting away my creations. 😀 Until then, delving in happiness and signing off is…
