Dear Friends,

It has been a great blogging journey so far and I have loved every minute of it. I have learnt a  lot of things in these two years and made some awesome friends too! But due to some personal and professional engagements now it is getting increasingly difficult to be regular on this blog.

I want to say good-bye to you all, at least for now. I will definitely come back but don’t really know when!

I will try to post something on my other two blogs, world through my eyes and crafty village,  if time permits.

Till then be happy and be safe.

Lots of love
