I love to recycle most of the stuff that I find. When I do collect the item, I am clueless about the creation🤔🤔🤔. The above design is shells that I picked up from the beaches of Goa, India. I used wedding cards to make those Christmas trees😆😆. As I said, nothing goes to waste.
Indian weddings are rather complex as everyone needs a wedding invitation. All relatives, close and distant ones, need a personal invitation😒😒. Even though weddings are supposed to be a time of celebration, they can become overwhelming and stressful. Based on the hierarchy in the family system, we need to coordinate the timing of the invitation🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️. Now, this can be a debate for discussion as some perceive themselves to be higher up on the ladder😎😎. Most will print some of the best wedding cards on Earth😉😉. A wedding card is the first step of the wedding. Of course, everyone uses digital cards these days, but I am sure some prefer the traditional way😊😊. Many of these customs are hilarious, but we still repeat them🤔🤔😒. We are indeed strange. Maybe we are afraid of what others will say and think of us. It is so important to save our faces from such thinking that we succumb to that fear.
Nevertheless, thanks to the continuation of such customs, I can pursue some creative designs, and nothing goes to waste. I wish everyone a creative Christmas, and may the coming year bring fresh ideas for all😊😊🙏.
