Hema's Love For Crafts

I can never imagine a weekend without Fascinating Fridays ;) And with these rocking stars every week, I just get so delighted!!! We're featuring a sweet lady who practices several forms of crafts... and trust me her creations are very charming!!! Who's she, lets get to introduce you to:

Name: Hemamalini Manikandan 

1. Tell us a little about yourself and your family
Firstly, I want to extend my gratitude to Noor Nahdi for featuring my creations in Fascinating Fridays. I was born and brought up in Salem, India and now settled in the same place. I have done my Bachelors in Engineering and Masters in Business Administration and got married to a sweet loving Husband.  We recently entered our parenthood with our baby boy born on 12/12/12. Haaaa!!! It’s such a sweet little family with so much bonding of love. 

2.  How and when did you start crafting?
To tell frankly am into crafting only after my marriage. I have always wanted to do something in craft but I did not get the chance to then. After marriage we had to move to China as he was working for a company there. My first crafting started in China with a cross stitch which I made to gift my parents... They just fell in love with it. Realizing my talent, my friends and family encouraged me to choose this path and I've taken it very happily.

3. From where do you draw your inspiration?
I take this as an opportunity to thank all the craft bloggers. I get inspired with everything that draws my attention in their blog. Thanks to the internet and blogging world.

4. How would you describe your style?
My style is to do something different out of the box and am sure that this would take me to heights one day.

5. What are the 5 top tools in your crafting space?
My top 5 tools are Quilling needle, Gum, Paint brush, Scissors, Stocking cloth and floral tape.

6. What’s your favorite technique?
I love three dimensional quilling... I enjoy doing it the most.

7. What are your go-to colors?
My go to colors are blue and pink. What a lovely combination they are !!!

8. Do you sell your projects?
Yes!!! I have started to sell my projects. Doing it on time is my biggest challenge having my baby boy too.

9. What do you do when you aren’t crafting? Job? Other hobbies and interests?
Other then crafting... Being a home maker and a care taker of my baby is my full time job.

10. Are you currently designing for any blog?
No. I’d really love to.. Until then am on the process of updating myself with everything that inspires me.

From clay modelling, to cross-stitching and then quilling, I don't think any word in the English dictionary can describe their beauty!! Simply superb and clean... Thank you Hema for being here and inspiring us today... And thanks friends for showing up!! Cheers
