Welcome to Wrap N Bow

"Helped are those who create anything at all, for they shall relive the thrill of their own conception."
- Alice Walker

Who can forget the very first craft of making colorful paper boats. My love for arts and crafts was conceived at a very young age.

My mom has been a true inspiration in all my creative endeavors. Since childhood I have been watching her making pretty and detailed embroidery, hard to see with a naked eye. Even with little resources at that time she somehow managed to motivate me to learn and explore my talents in arts and crafts.

Like most of us, I started out with paper crafts. I started exploring other crafts like flower making and arranging, clay work, candle craft and presentation crafts. I got a boost when pictures of my crafty creations were published in a local Gujrati newspaper "Vama" in 1996. I was also interviewed for the same. At that time I was mainly doing seasonal and wedding presentation crafts.

With the birth of my daugther, I got a chance to dwelve into USA's largest craft - Scrapbooking. Its like coming back to paper crafts.

Using this blog I would like to give exposure to my creative interests that include presentation crafts, floral design and food craft. It also provides me an opportunity to learn from people with similar interests.

Along with my craft creations, I will also try to post about my other passions - Culinary and Gardening.

P.S : Wrap N Bow comes from a mom of a beautiful girl, named Siya, presently residing in Austin-TX.
