Heroes of the City - DVD, Book and Toys Giveaway

Heroes of the City is a  famous Swedish television cartoon about rescue vehicles in a small town where everyone is a hero or can be one.

There are different characters as Paulie Police Car, Tilly Train, Fiona Fire Engine etc. who help the townspeople find thieves, put out fires, and solve day to day problems created by (mostly), as the name suggests, Calamity Crow. My son really loves him as he thinks that Calamity crow is funny and silly. So little one also knows that what is silly deed:-)

The DVD is a great watch for preschoolers as they can learn how to help each other in need, sharing, true friendship from the characters. 

The book "The Hot Air Balloon" is also a good read and is filled with so many pictures to keep your kid engrossed.

See the illustrations, my son lives to see the pages over and over again and it's a big hit with him.
The toys  Tilly and Paulie are new best friends of my three year old son. He keeps asking me their names so that i should not forget their names too:-)

The cartoon is primarily targeted at children age 3 – 7.
Heroes of the city is created by Ruta Ett DVD AB

The good news is that you can win one set of Toys, DVD and the Book here, as I am hosting a giveaway.

This is the whole set. 

Your kid will love it for sure, I can say it as my son loved it.

New earrings

bought this chandelier earring from the store which had three cabochons and I made these three lovely earrings out of it. I specially loved this big chandelier earring. 

Since they had bezels so I made chandelier earrings out of them too.

This one was the smallest so I kept this one simple with just a glass pearl. 

I made this first as stud and then with eye pin and head pin I added this tear drop coral beads to make it one dangling pair.

Same goes with this one too.

There are some more pairs. 

Hope all of you will like them all. Happy crafting.

Empty Pringles can to beautiful stone vase

You know how much I love to recycle and what better to make something very beautiful out of waste? Then you should see this beautiful stone vase I made out of a Pringles container.


 Easy peasy work with beautiful results. Isn't it? Earlier I had this Pringles container which I painted using white acrylic paint then painted with crackle medium and then last coat with cinnamon acrylic paint. It was beautiful but I love the stone work and I already made wall sconces with stones 
here and I wanted to give the same effect to this vase.

I had some left over stones and I took my trusty glue gun and start gluing it all over the container just like I did here and this was the result.

Isn't it beautiful? I think this is my best work out of waste.


What do you think about it? Do let me know your views and suggestions. 

Happy crafting.

Customized aprons DIY

This is a sponsored post with the Mynextstyle.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

 Here is another refashion post, this time turning plain white aprons into customized tie-dyed ones  with Mynextstyle 's  iron- on letters and Fabric Spray paint. In this post. You can see my earlier post about using iron-on letters herehere and here.
Here are updated two aprons.

The aprons, Iron on letters and Fabric spray paint are from Mynextstyle.

I folded first apron in accordian style vertically and second one horizontally and tied them with their ribbons itself.

Then I took Pink spray paint for the first one.

Second one with Purple spray paint.

Then used the Black and Yellow Iron on letters to write "Belongs to: The Best Cook" . The instructions are on the back and for details you can check out my earlier posts (link provided above).

Second one with "Mom's the cook"
It turned out so good that I gifted them to my friends. Pretty easy, huh? So why don't you make one for yourself. Let me know if you make one for yourself.
Happy crafting.

Cute boot socks DIY

Some times back I saw these cute boot socks in a shop and was almost going to buy then thought "Oh I can make these" (seems familiar to you too with certain things). So, I have seen these tutorials about cutting the sleeves of an old sweater and make it as your boot socks. Only problem, I didn't have any old sweater. So, I was just checking my closet and found this scarf which is huge and I didn't wear it for long, immediately I knew I can make boot socks out of it.

So, here it is:-)

I choose the scarf for its length and cute button which I knew I was gonna use for my boot socks.

This is the scarf below.

Cut on both ends according to my size.

Stitched at the ends. 

Dabbed a little fray check at the ends.

Stitched the buttons and voila, cute boot socks. 

Time: 15 minutes
Things: old scarf, a needle , thread, fray check

I loved the results, don't you?

I love reading your comments, so keep them coming:-)

Happy crafting or should I say repurposing:-)

Coasters & another jute bowl DIY

It's good to be back after almost a month's break from blogging. With holidays and giving more time to my son (preschool closed) it was simply not possible to blog, even though I have made many things, the posts are pending.

Yesterday i.e. Saturday afternoon (son's nap time)  I made these jute coasters and another jute bowl (earlier one is here). with some jute twine and Mod Podge I found in my craft supplies. It just took an hour or so and it turned out cute:-). You know how much I love jute.

This ugly picture is one of the coasters base in work in progress with Mod Podge smeared all over it.
(one of my crockpot was the base).

The tutorial to make these is already here so you can make one for yourself.
Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Happy crafting.
