Thank you Istila for sharing info.

I will share a flower painting i did.But attaching it in this forum is lil time consuming job.

Now a days i am not getting time to go for my hobby.9to6 job is killing me.Dead
 
Hey the rangoli i make using a wet chalk.When the pattern get dry it well sits on floor.

and we have here powders of different colors available.I mix clear  sand (from river bed) in them and fill the pattern,But color rangoli i put mostly on festivals.
I make sure to draw Goddes Laxmi(hope you know Goddes of wealth  in our part of World) foot print as my mom Says it brings good luck.Smile

and coming to books i read Indian author ,Recently i finished a book "The inconvenience of arranged marriage" .Now reading a book called "Meluha: Shiva triology"

I love reading controvercial books ex"I am Nathuram saying".


Thank you Seema, for your reply, Smile I didn't mean to ignore your response, don't know how I missed this post, unless the page never got refreshed while I was replying before. 

I am sorry that you work such long hours, but at least reading will take some of the pressure away. This new generation expects women to be on the same footing as men and expects them to work, full time, though men are usually physically stronger and fit for outside jobs, they do not go through what women go through (i.e pregnancy, child birth, motherhood etc.),  women already have enough chores to do at home! 

Thanks for telling me about the chalk & powders you use for rangoli... If you have the beautiful rangoli photos, do share. Smile

I would love to see your flower picture. I upload images then copy paste it here. I also love the red decoration Indian women do on their feet when getting married. Is it paint you use, or henna? 

I don't know much about Hindu idols, though do know that you worship different ones, so I wouldn't have known which one(s) you worship. I have heard of Laximi - the money idol. 

We just pray to Allah (One God, Creator) directly and ask Him for providence -It's such a short cut for me and it always works, (sometimes at supersonic speed). LOL  Okay, I have to admit that I don't have a car because I haven't come round to praying for one yet! I don't like the idea of a metal box carrying me around everywhere... I love nature and hate pollution, so I rather walk even in the winter! 

I know our beliefs are different, and am sharing what our prophet (pbuh) said about wealth: 

"Richness is not in the quantity of possessions (that one has); rather, true richness is the richness of one's self (or contentment)." (Bukhari)

"Good never brings forth but good...This worldly wealth is (like) sweet (fruit), and if a person earns it (the wealth) in a legal way and spends it properly, then it is an excellent helper, and whoever earns it in an illegal way, he will be like the one who eats but is never satisfied."  (Bukhari)

God says:

"Wealth and children are the adornments of the life of this world. But the permanent righteous deeds are better in your Lord's Sight (to attain) rewards, and better in respect of hope." (Quran 18: 46)

"And it is not your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us, but only he (will please Us) who believes, and does righteous deeds; for such (people), there will be a double reward for what they did, and they will reside in the high dwellings (of Paradise), in peace and security." (Quran 34: 37)

How is everyone doing with their hobbies? 

How about some yummy recipes to share by those who have a love for cooking?

Anyway, my youngest child made this as a 3d dolphin picture.

If your child can't draw properly yet you need to draw and help out.

I helped mine, draw after making a template to trace. You need sticky back foams, pencils, paint, ruler, scissors, tracing paper, construction paper, plain paper and the pattern for the picture frame.






You can make your own paper frame, following instructions from here:
