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.
Hey guys how are y’all doing? It’s Friday already !! I cannot tell you fast this week has gone for me. Really looking forward to a relaxing weekend. But before that want share this fun DIY project with you guys. It’s a super fun project you could do with your kids over the weekend. Also if you are throwing any parties and are looking for some table setting inspiration, this is the perfect project for you. And of course the colors had to be pastels (my obsession this season). Also obsessing over the black & white checkered pattern lately. Follow along to see the details.
A couple of days ago I attended a home decor DIY workshop organized by Ashley from Sugar&Cloth and Brittni from Paper&Stitch right here in Houston at the Sugar&Cloth studio. They did such a great job in selecting the projects and organizing everything. The studio is so amazing , I could just literally stay there forever. It was great fun doing some home decor project with a bunch of creative ladies. Both Ashley & Brittni have done the workshop round-ups on their blogs which you can read here & here. One of the projects we did that day were making a pendant light bulb fixture from scratch. It was the most time consuming of all the projects we did that day but in the end was totally worth it. I happened to complete painting it yesterday and thought I would share some pics with you. All the materials used were from COLORCORD.
There are more projects I am still working on from that day. You will be seeing them here soon. You can also check my instagram account for more pictures from the workshop.
Hello friends! It’s good to be back on the blog after a while. I know I have been mia recently. A lot has been happening behind the scenes and on a personal front. I will be sharing more details on that soon. Also, I am working on some commission paintings lately so that’s taking a lot of my time. One of the things on my checklist was to order business cards for Designforsoul after I changed the design. This weekend I finally received my order and cannot tell you how excited I was to see them. Oubly did such a great job! and I also received a surprise gift along with my package.yay! They allowed me to upload my custom design and I could also choose from a wide range of colors for the edges. Obviously I opted for the Gold! Here are some pictures I thought I would share with you guys.
These are inspiring me to begin my week and share some exciting work with you guys.
Happy Monday Y’all!
