I started to participate some International challenges, and from there my journey started and never look back!!!

    All steps done :)
    I don't remember when exactly I started crafting :) It was during my school days where I was eagerly awaiting the crafts period and trying my hands on some simple DIY stuff the teachers taught. I also made simple greeting cards and gifting my parents and friends :) It all became a passion once I started working and now I'm more into handmade cards and quilled earrings :)

  12. Dear Jasleen...3 yrs...its been long isnt it and I think I have been your follower for the whole time! So happy for you and so happy you are my crafty blogger friend!! I started crafting during my AIIMS post graduation days...though the work was bone tiring one did easily go crazy...picked up an emboss painting kit from a fancy store and dead tired after a night duty...started painting in that brain numb state but found how wonderful crafting was as a stress buster!! Now for the rules..Am your follower on your blog, liked your fabulous page and I signed up for instagram some time back but have lost my password , username etc so have no way of following you on instagram but have posted about your giveaway on my blog sidebar to send you some more traffic .
    Cheers

    I am enjoying crafting since childhood, I used to make handmade cards and gifts and decorations for festivals, infact I used to paint and craft whenever I used to get free. 2 years back came along few craft blogs, youtube videos and then online challenges. This all fascinated me because I too love to create, learn new techniques and share with everyone what I made, I always want to do something in my creative field and this made me to start my blog :)

    I love your blog and specially your CAS cards.. those r so so pretty... I hope I can make something like those someday.
    Since childhood I was into pencil drawing... but on a lazy afternoon 4 yrs back while googling something I came across Quilling and I'm in love with it since then.
    Came to know about IQCG a year n a half back and i got to know a lot of quillers n crafters and you of course. Crafting allows me to create and explore and keep me connected to all u genius ppl.

  18. hello di..
    many many congratulations for this achievement.. may you achieve more in the coming years and be inspiration for many. So now about me.. I was in love with art and craft since chilhood days.. as I started growing my love for craft too started growing in me.. It is like hobby for me.. and also when i am disturbed it keeps me calm.. It was in my first year MTECH when I saw my friend doing quilling of which I was unaware till then.. absolutely knew nothing about it like the strips etc. Then one day I thought of trying it and using engineer brains I took scissors and coloured paper and cut them into strips and through my fingers started coiling them to get that quilled look.. this is how I started then by passing days I started searching what that technique is about and also came to know of the die cutting and just fall in love with it.. So this is my ongoing journey in the craft..

    XOXO..

  20. I FORGOT TO SHARE MY STORY. I WAS ALWAYS GOOD AT CRAFT EVEN AS A CHILD. I LOVE COLORS AND SPARKLE AND FLOWERS....I DUNT REALLY KNOW BUT AS LONG AS I REMEMBER I WOULD COLLOCT STICKERS, EMBELLISHMENTS, RIBBONS AND LITTLE KNICK-KNACKS. AS I GREW UP, IT TURNED INTO DECORATING GIFT BOXES AND MAKING THANK YOU NOTES AND CARDS. BUT I GOT MORE INCLINED TO CRAFTING WHEN I STARTED MY ENGINEERING AND I USED THAT KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE INTERESTING GIFT BOXES AND MY DESIGNS WERE MORE ACCURATE. I GOT INTO SERIOUS CRAFTING FROM 2008 AND AFTER SEVER PUSH FROM MY HUSBANK I STARTED BLOGGING AND SHARING MY WORK WITH EVERYONE FROM THIS YEAR APRIL. THATS ALL ABOUT ME. TY FOR GIVING THIS PLATFORM TO WRITE ABOUT ME. ONCE AGAIN...CONGRATS.

  30. Hey Jasleen,

    Congratulations on reaching this milestone. I can imagine the joy and the amazing feeling of accomplishment. Love your CAS cards especially the colors and the vibrabcy that they bring about. All the best and hope we get celebrate more and more of your blog anniversaries :-)
    As for me, my crafting journey began with Quilling in 2013.For me it was more of a therapy from all the stress. My husband was in Australia the, nd I was in Pune with my 1 year old boy. Quilling was a real stressbuster for me. After moving to Australia a year later, I was introduced to cardmaking, Pergamano(which I learnt here), Stamping. And now, I absolutely love it.Try my best to keep on creating as much as possible :-) but sometimes its difficult with 2 little boys at home.
    Again, wish you all the best.

  32. Hi Jas...first of all apologies for participating so late in your lovely anniversary event! Life has been bit hectic..better late than never :)
    You have been a very special bloggy friend to me..with your sincere comments. Your creations have a beautiful thought behind them and always leave a positive impression..You have come a long way in 3 yeras wit so many D T assignments. .hope you keep on doing what you enjoy and add more feathers to your hat !
    As you know I am a big fan follower of your blogand fb ..I do not use instagram . Shared your giveaway on my blog and fb too.

    As for my story..I was always interested in some form of crafting/ oil painting/ sketching rihht from school and during engineering days. But mostly I discovered myself after marriage and more after my daughter was born...I know new moms get super busy with baby around and hardly find sny time for themselves. .but mine was different. .. She was a premie baby and had to stay in hospital for 3 months after she was born...so the whole day I would be with her..and at night I would explore crafting...sometimes getting scolding from family for not taking enough rest :)
    From then on its unstoppable. .my blog is my second baby and they both give me immense joy.
    Congrats again dear..hope to meet you sometime in person.
