Kadambaby.com... a new beginning !!

Looking back...it’s not been long since we first thought of getting into kids home décor and now we are almost ready to roll !!

We gave ourselves a deadline of 11th Nov’11 as it is our son’s first birthday (and therefore the most auspicious day of the year for us). And as with everyone else…we realized that we work best with deadlines!
 It was quite an ambitious planning… getting the website ready, product concept to designing to getting them made, integration with payment gateway, facebook, twitter et al… everything had to be done in just about 3 months. Phew!!

 All of it is finally over and we are ready to start our website with our first collection of bedroom furnishings and some cool stuff for infants. We shall keep on adding a lot more categories as we expand.

 Have a look at www.kadambaby.com and please do let us know what you feel. Your comments and feedback is extremely important to us. You can also leave your comments on our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/KadamBaby

My Wishlist !!

This post has been pending for a long long time.. had read a wishlist on someone’s blog sometime back (I’ve even forgotten the blog author’s name and I’m feeling really sorry for that ).I've had this wishlist from a long time..but it never got completed!
Posting it anyway…so here it goes…

1) I(actually it should be ‘we’..hubby included) have been wanting to do something on my(our) own for a while now. The entrepreneurship bug has bitten me(us) long back..but being the perfect procrastinator(yep, both of us!) nothing much happened. However, right now it looks like things are shaping up as we would want them to…so hopefully I’ll be able to strike this point off from my list soon…. But it remains here right now!

2) Travel in India
- Make a trip to Kerala…its backwaters, houseboat, lush green environment…everything is so fascinating…God’s own country indeed!
- Andaman… had been there long back with parents and siblings...longing to go again and enjoy the beauty.
- Agra...had been…

happy anniversary

We celebrated our 4th anniversary yesterday :)
To some it may seem a very short time together and to some it may seem a long long time..all I can say is that I really don’t know where the years went..
We had a few ups and downs (like every family I guess!) but the ride was quite enjoyable..
Had read this a lot of times earlier and came across this again today while surfing...this time it goes for my husband (without sounding mushy!)

" He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry. He’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he…

a give away..

Living room- wall decor

Image
Of late I’ve been inspired by blogs on home décor/crafts etc and have been really enjoying reading and seeing what people have been posting.
Heres something I did last weekend and these blogs have inspired me to post my stuff too. Hope it interests at least some people!!
I had a few of my paintings lying in my house..never bothered to get them framed.. Got them framed finally last week and now they are up on our walls. Feels nice to show off some of my own work (talk of modesty!)

Have put these up on our living room walls..just near the entrance..


Heres a closer look..


Another wall...We have a 7 month old baby who keeps on crawling in the entire house so we've decided to get minimum furnitures right now and give him enough space for all his activities.. heres our floor seating arrangement and another one of my paintings up on the wall..



closer look...


i also tried my hand at making origami lotus..



didn't have the right color papers..but tried to make them anyway..they are now …

memories...

Hello everyone!! We’re back to namma bengaluru from New York and everyone’s been asking “how does it feel to be back??”

It always feels good to be back home. Yes, Bangalore is what I like to call home now :) When I came here in 2004 (it’s been almost 7 yrs!) it took me some time to start liking this city. I was still in the transition phase from college to work life and Hyderabad seemed anyday better than Bangalore. But it didn’t take me long to fall in love with the city - a metropolitan minus the madness of big cities! My first job, some lovely friends, marriage, first home (though rented but it still is home!) and now first car...there are lots of memories with the city. No wonder no other place comes even close when I think of settling down somewhere. Also sis and bro-in-law staying here was an added incentive to be back!

So here we are back after 3 years and it now feels like we had never left the city...it was just a short holiday trip and now we are back to the usual life. To …

My Baby -- My Life !!

Wanna see how time flies?? Have a baby!!

I still remember when Nishu was about to come in our lives.. the anxiety,nervousness,excitement was there for almost a year and finally the time came to go to the hospital..every minute spent at the hospital waiting for his arrival seemed so long.. and then he decided to make his grand entry into this world..the look on his face..bright wide open eyes, pink lips and oh so delicate skin! I was afraid to even pick him or hold him fearing that anything might hurt my baby. I’m sure every mom feels the same for her child, but he seemed to be the cutest,prettiest,loveliest baby I had ever seen!

Seems that he is growing with every blink of the eye - from lying calmly, to moving hands and legs, to smiling, to cooing, to holding hands, to grasping toys, to rolling, falling and now crawling… It's all just amazing! How someone so dependent on you starts learning things one by one and will finally be able to lead a life on his own..even then he will a…
