Just Refreshing My Childhood Memories as well as yours too

Hi all

Yesterday I was just sitting with one of my relatives and discussed some of our all time favourite TV commercials and title songs which we used to watch in our childhood days on Doordarshan channel(India's first TV Channel).

Then suddenly an idea came in to my mind that why not write an interesting post sharing our all time TV commercials/title songs and refresh not only my childhood memories but also the memories of my readers too.

I searched on You tube and found an awesome collection there. There are so many videos there but I pick few to share with you.

Now here comes my favourites which refresh my childhood memories as well as yours too-

This cadbury ad. actually I am not sure I saw it on Doordarshan or any other cable network channel but really like it.

Special thanks to:

  • Doordarshan channel-who really cherished our childhood days with their awesome ads which we never ever forget through out our life.
  • You tube- who makes it so easy for us to search any video.

ICRC25: New Year (2013) Calendar + Recycle/Upcyle Something

Happy New Year to everyone.

This is my first post of this new year and I am super exciting to share with you.

Yup we are back with our another ICR challenge which is really interesting and exciting challenge too.

Now this time our challenge is -


Make a 2013 Calendar... But yes, with a twist again.....

And the COMBO TWIST is to use some recycled or upcycled element in your project.

Here is the challenge pad for you-

Now here comes my creation..Yes Magnetic Calender-

I have recycled the cover of my Magnetic Punch cover for the base of my calender.

The top part is little damaged while shipping so I remove the top part and make a size according to my design. Then I cover the base with embossed sheet available in my local market.

Decorate it with handmade layered flower and I have also used the most pretty and beautiful mulberry flowers available in my store, I was dying to use these pretty flowers in my creation.

Calender is computer generated.
Used peg available in my store.
Chipboards for writing 2013 available in my store.

Now the most interesting part.

I wish to give some new and interesting look to my creation so I took my roll of Magnetic tape available in my store.

Then I peel off the white side of the tape which is the back and the adhesive part of magnetic roll-

Cut the magnetic strips with scissors and stick it to the back side of the calender-

Now Magnetic calender is ready to stick on the Refrigerator.

I am entering this creation to the following challenges-

Simon Says Stamp Challenge- New Something(I have used magnetic roll first time in my creation and calender project is also new to me)
