|Hello fellow bloggers, how have you been doing. Its been a very very long time since I blogged in here. I am back and back with a new look too ^__^.
My last post was almost 6 months back!! How fast the time runs. As I have mentioned in my past post that I was expecting a new member into our family….after a long wait and past my due date alhamdulilla we were blessed with charming young prince into our family. It was another experience unlike I had with my lil princess, hope to share them with you one day.
Now almost getting back into my old routine, which I had missed out during my months of waiting for the arrival of my little munchkin. Hope to be back and post on frequently. Looking at my blog list I have back log of posts of DIY to share with you all….so gonna get them done and cut them off one by one :).
|Dubai is undoubtedly still one of the places in UAE and in the Middle East where businesses and other industries are thriving. And as such, more expatriates, along with their families, are expected to make a beeline towards Dubai to take advantage of numerous work opportunities made available.
If you are planning to move with your family to Dubai due to a better employment opportunity for you, there are several considerations you have to think about prior to coming here. These include finding a suitable place to reside in, good schools for your children, and available kids’ activities in Dubai as well.
Also, fun activities for kids can help young children to cope better with their being uprooted from
The Dolphin Bay is a fun and interactive way to learn about the beloved aquatic mammals. Or if you are hankering for the winter season in your home country, you can have fun in the snow at the Ski Dubai located at the Emirates Mall. Children can also learn how to ski or snowboard from qualified instructors.
Can’t decide whether to play in the water or in the snow? Why not try the Ice Land Water Park which deftly combines the thrills of both water and snow with its Polar Mountains, Arctic Waves as well as the opportunity to snorkel.
The Atlantis Palm Dubai offers fun activities for all the members of the family. While mom pampers herself at the spa, Dad can engage in various sports activities. The kids, on the other hand, can frolic at the waterpark.
Lastly, nothing is more important than providing children worthwhile activities and experiences where they can learn and still have fun. So if your child or children have a thirst for knowledge or want to improve his or her language, reading or math skills, nothing would be better than having them enrol on and take additional classes or workshops. And while the kid/s are busy learning, the grown-ups can have an additional hour or two to gallivant, relax, and have fun as well.
Thank you Mr.Calvin for your insightful post on how to have fun in Dubai.
Well then dear folks, till next time.
Since the bubble of Pinterest, the vast ideas you get from there as well as the huge sea of inspirations that never ceases to bore you, there was one thing that have kept behind in my head that i need to try it out. What I am gonna share with you might be not a new but I hope you enjoy it!!
My IKEA lamp had seen good old days, the rice paper shade was getting old, fading and tearing up. I needed a solution to make a long shade for it and the yarn and balloon was the perfect, cheap and best.
I guess I am blabbering a lot in here so let’s get into work, mind you this post might be heavily loaded with snaps 🙂
First lets gather the materials
fabric starch, I used revive starch, its powder that you mix it with water depending on the stiffness you need for your cloth
Yarn any color of your choice, I used dual coloured black and white yarn from DAISO Japan
First try to make gluey instance by mixing the flour and starch along with the water, but not to thick, first time I had used white glue, but I found out using the mentioned above two makes the final product more sturdier and the light perfume smell of the starch is much better than the glue smell.
Soak the yarn into the glue mixture without opening or spreading the yarn out otherwise you’ll end up with tangled yarn, until its totally soaked. You can always use a hand glove to be on the safe side :)!!
Cover the balloon with cling film, it will be easier when you pop the balloon or if you think of deflating the balloon and using it again, permitted the you didn’t knot it too tight, like I did :D!! You must be wondering what is the orange doing in there? well, you see my lil princess want to have the orange as a witness on what we are doing and wanted to capture it along!!
Tie a little knot in the beginning and then beginning covering up the balloon with the yarn in what ever direction or pattern you like. If you like to have a light intricate design you don’t have to take up all the yarn. For more sturdier and heavy design go for the full.
Once you reach the end tie into a knot and that fix it in its place. Leave it to dry, and I mean completely dry, as it was winter it really took along time to dry out. If you pop the balloon before its completely dry your lamp shade might lose the desired shape.
I let it out in my flat balcony on my laundry stand, mind you you’ll have a mess to clean up later on :)!!
Once its dried you can pop off the balloon, or like me try to open up the knot of the balloon and see how it deflates away from the yarn. I was wondering if the balloon would fly up and down like usual when the air goes out of it along with the yarn,testing physics in there I guess!!
That’s all the work in there, attach it to the cord if you are making a hanging lamp or just like mine just put it over the lamp stand and turn the lights on!!
I just love the intricate design that makes up on the wall, it is so beautiful, don’t you love it too!!
