Tip of the week!!


This is a great tutorial on how to drape a Saree Lehenga in 10 easy steps by Kalpana Shah.

1. Tie the underskirt a little looser than usual.

2. Start by tucking in your Saree with a folded box pleat.Flatten it and pin it in place.
3. Turn the underskirt towards your right hip, make another pleat, pin it and turn the skirt again.

4. Continue until you reach the first pleat.

5. Make sure you have 7 to 8 pleats distributed all around your waist.
6. 3 pleats at the back, 1 pleat on the right and 3 in front.
7. Once the lehenga is complete tighten your underskirt and start pleating your pallu. Make up to 4 1/2 pleats.
 8. Drape the pallu down your right shoulder. Stretch the innermost border on the left and tuck it into the skirt.
 9. You can tie a belt around your pallu,to complete the look.
10. This is how the Saree Lehenga should appear from the back.


Hope you enjoy this new style!!

Happy Thursday!!

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
