Contact film images 1 and 2 via Decor8

came across window film contact paper via decor8 a couple of days back and i think its a great idea to cover up windows through which you see the not so great views of your neighbourhood!

Colour Combinations

so here are some colour combinations for the coasters i am about to start making...let me know what you think of these and so i can get to work!

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

it is time i started making and selling!

so you remember the Japanese coasters that i made sometime back?

well i have finally decided to make more of them for sale.
it is an idea i have been toying with for a long time start making home accessories for take small but sure steps in this direction and so here i am sharing my plans with you..
i plan to make the coasters reversible, in five designs with a mix of geometric and floral...
in case any of you are interested, do please let me know so i can maybe show you some colour options and customize them for you!
the pricing and shipping isn't final yet so i'm going to have to work on that, but writing it here for me makes it a little more concrete than it being just an idea floating in my head!

i'll need all the encouragement and support!

hurray to a new hopeful beginning!
