Hello friends, its almost Friday 🙂 and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Continuing this week’s mother’s day theme on designforsoul, today we are making a naked carrot cake with cream cheese frosting!!! yum. I know baking a cake for your loved ones is a cliche but common doesn’t it always work? Carrot cake is one of my mom’s favorite’s and although she stays thousands of miles away from me, I plan to show her the cake via skype this year.

Hey there! how’s the week going so far ? for me , its pretty busy . I’m planning on starting weekly columns on the blog, just to get some order and be a little consistent on the content. Also, its mainly for me and my procrastinating habit. I have to commit to myself before I commit to you guys, so wish me luck! Speaking of commitment, I’m sharing another project for mother’s day as promised. Today we are making DIY Mother’s Day Cards with pom poms y’all!
You could make them in a couple of mins literally. All fathers can make them with their kids. They are so cute I tell ya! I’m gonna mail one to my mom.
Hey there. How was your weekend? Mine was a little bit of work and a little relaxing time. So in all a pretty good one. I also made this DIY Aloe Vera face mask for myself. Which got me thinking that it would be a perfect Mother’s Day gift too! It’s super easy to make and you could also add it to a SPA gift basket if you are planning to give one . Just add a cute handwritten tag and voila! you have an excellent personalized gift ready. Don’t worry if you do not have an aloe plant, you get one very easily at your local grocery store. I was lucky enough to have one in my patio.
Hello all ! Today its another DIY day here on designforsoul. If you read yesterday’s post you’ll know I mentioned watching Mad Men recently and am totally inspired by the mid century vibe. I loved ‘Peggy Olsen’s’ character played by Elizabeth Moss. Her style, creative thinking , workspace, everything . In one of the episodes they have shown a bar cart in her office and my eye naturally went to the beautiful glasses. They appear in a couple of episodes on season 4. Below a is picture for you guys.

So inspired by these, today we are making DIY mid-century modern inspired glasses. If you are planning on some spring get-togethers or pool parties this is a perfect project for you . I chose the lines pattern but you could even do flowers or other shapes. Who doesn’t like a project involved with gold paint right? I bet your guests will love them too!
Hello guys! It’s another DIY project here on designforsoul today. Recently I just finished watching Mad Men. I know I’m late to the party but so glad I got a chance to catch up with the show finally. I totally loved the style, the mid century modern theme and the bright colors. Well today’s project is inspired by this theme. Also it’s spring time! which means more outdoor parties, pool side laying, barbecues n cool drinks. This DIY color blocked tray will definitely add fun to your entertainment decor. Hope you enjoy!
Hey there! How was your weekend? Well mine was totally action packed. After a week of gloomy weather and rain the sun finally showed up on Sunday. I quickly got to completing all the pending photo shoots. You know how important good lighting is for us bloggers. So last week I completed a commissioned dog family portrait for a family and handed it over on Friday. So today I can share the pictures with you. Enjoy!
It feels nice to see the reaction of people when I hand over the paintings. I’m a bit nervous and anxious at the same time. I keep thinking if it turned out the way they wanted it or is it going to be a disappointment. Well, I’m happy to say they loved it. Which is the case most of the times except this one time , I dint really understand what the client was thinking. It was a picture of a tree he had clicked in Hawaii and wanted me to paint it. I tried my best and he said he liked it however, I thought he was looking for something more. Well we all learn from our experiences, don’t we? But when they do like it , I am just so happy can’t really express into words. All the effort and emotion I put in the artwork is totally worth it when it brings a smile on someone’s face.
Have a great week ahead guys and stay tuned for some fun DIY projects coming up this week.
