Oh I love your list!!! I have loads of scraps of paper with list scrawled on them and just recently started using teux deux to eliminate all of that! Looking forward to your creations. Bittawfeeq in sha Allah! xxx

Jazak'Allahu khair sis :)
This 'list' thing really works for me, once I write (or type it) I can pretty much get things done :)
This Eid we're having a 'Jungle Book' theme, so all the jungle book stuff is pretty much what I need to start with.

I recently bought a book that, as a designer and all-round creative person, I think you will really like. It's called "Cultural Connectives: Bridging the Latin and Arabic Alphabets" by Rana Abou Rjeily. Really beautiful and powerful.

Hey Kat,
Thanks for much for the visit, and the book suggestion - appreciate it very much! I am adding it to my reading list. :)

Fun ideas, ukhti! I love the crochet flower. My neighbor made an 'Eid banner last year from scrapbook paper. I keep meaning to make one each year but still haven't! I look forward to seeing yours, insha'Allah.

Thanks Salihah, I actually finished the banner..but it was for a magazine, so I have to wait to see if I can post up a pic of it.. BUT I will be doing an Eid Banner giveaway sometime in June insha'Allah :)
