Hulum !

Diwali is over.
Christmas is on its way!
I love the power these festivals hold to bring joy to each heart
make each eye shine and hugs
...they do spread cheer everywhere.
teaching us to share....

I have been too busy 
making sweets 
and painting diyas 
and cleaning the house 
for diwali :)

...and now is the time to spread love around

So here I am with my art work :)

Baskets have always fascinated me
 and when 
it is a bright and happy one
I have all the reasons 
to drool :)

Are you wondering what is written there in black??

Well it reads HULUM in Arabic and means DREAM in English :)

My basket finally hangs on my kitchen wall 
inspiring me to 'dream'
for that which can be dreamed can be achieved :)
