Pongal – Bommala Koluvu/Golu


Hello Friends,

Last 1 month has been very busy preparing for Doll display/Golu and I can’t wait to share the pics! This year I made some more handmade dolls out of polymer clay. I had friends over to view it and they were so happy to come and see and I was really flattered with all their kind words.

I shall publish tutorials for some of them in the coming posts!

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here... When we first we moved to US(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..;)

  3. Hi,

    Thanks a lot for sharing your ideas. I loved your site and totally fell in love with it especially the clay art. I copied your idea and made my version of it. Did you make the pots and calf/elephant too? My pots did not come out well and I used animal figurines. Is there a way I can send you the pic of mine?
