Krishna Janmastami 2014

Yesterday we celebrated Janmastami at home. Many people celebrated Krishna Jayanti / Janmastami (birthday of Lord Krishna) a month ago this year. But, as per the calendar we follow - Krishna's birthday is last night.

This year again S's mom is with us and we ended up cooking a whole lot of goodies. I took the second half of the day off. Here is everything that we cooked.

Of course there had to be a rangoli - This time Krishna's feet :)

Happy Krishna Janmastami! :)

Somebody Stop Me!!

I have been painting quite a few peg dolls in the past week. Another fellow crafter told me I wasn't going be to able to stop painting dolls once I start off... SO true!

Here is a snapshot of all the tiny people that have joined us in our home...

The ladies! :)

The men...

The men and the boy...

And... .here is Everyone!

And I have 8 more unfinished peg dolls waiting in my mail box. Oh No! what have I done :)
Lucky for me - The dolls festival - Navratri is just a couple weeks away and I am ready with gifts for all our friends :)

Wooden peg dolls

It is Doll season. What I mean is Navaratri is around the corner.
So I tried to paint some wooden pegs as Radha and Krishna.

The design and colors are inspirations from across the internet. Thanks Ambika for tips on Painting wooden dolls. Ambika has a lovely store on etsy. Do check it out.

Unfortunately this time I do not have any step by step pictures - just the finished ones.
