And I am mighty excited about it! Been too busy to do a proper post, but I’ll leave you with some pictures of the festival of lights in the JnM household. So what if we are thousands of miles from home? We can celebrate Diwali here too!
First step – bring home some cheap diyas from the local Indian store and paint and glitter from Walmart. Do NOT buy the pricey painted diyas at the store. One can paint them better at home, what say?
Next step, the lantern or ‘kandil’. This one was not so easy (my craft skills are not the best), but I managed somehow. Do you guys like it? The husband says it’s not so close to the real thing, but considering that he had very little to contribute to the project, I’ll take his comment with a pinch of salt, I think!
It looks much better with colors, doesn’t it?
And now for the grand finale!
Floating candles all around the house completed the picture.
A very Happy Diwali to all of you too!
