Who am I ?

Hi there !!

My name is Naush and I’m so glad you’ve found your way over to my little creative nook in the blog world.

My Family :-

I live in Dubai – United Arab Emirates.

Married to the love-of-my-life (samie) for the past 18 years !

My biggest and best role is that of being MOM to three amazing young boys ages

17, 15 and 14.

They are my biggest fans as well as my toughest critics.

Whatever little success, I’ve had in the past 13 years, I totally owe it to them.

Ofcourse my family is not complete without our feline children.

13 years back, we began our journey with our first two cats, Keiki and Pepper, however, today we have 8 cats and few fosters too.

This is my little world and I feel like I am blessed with the best job in the world : being mom to them and the center of their universe !!

My Passion :-

I’ve loved art since the time I was a toddler. It was the avenue I choose to express myself. I love all kinds of crafts but have worked for a longer period with papercrafting (designing handmade greeting cards, tags ), Decoupage, Mixed media, Printmaking, Woodworks, Sculpture works, Jewelry making and a few others. I think, I find myself most happy when I am layering in mixed media or drilling holes on planks from pallets or organizing my garden.

Guilt Trip :-

 I must tell you that I am quilty of spending long hours of the day drooling on images of DIY, gardens, and recycling projects on PINTEREST rather than ACTUALLY working on these projects !!

What can I say, Pinterest is addictive 😉

Workshops & Programs  :-

It’s great to introduce total beginners to the hobby and give them an outlet for their creative energies.. I enjoy sharing with people how simple products can be used to make fantastic end products, especially like altered art and trash to treasure projects.

Hall of fame :-

I was interviewed by City7 TV

Featured in Khaleej times, Gulf News, Emirates Woman and 7Days.

We have participated in Events held at Al Serkal Avenue, Tamimi Stables, The Archive & Khazan Park.

For the past year, I have been teaching crafts at the prestigious

Al Jalila Cultural Center for children.

I have also been a part of the winter camp at Ductac. (Mall of Emirates)

Doodle Buddies handmade greeting cards are hosted at

Organic Cafe,  Wrapt and Tinker box.

My next workshops are scheduled at

Sajaya Young ladies of Sharjah

Dubai Garden Center.

 I have given special workshops at Government schools for environment related recyle/reuse crafts.

I taught Visual Arts at school for the Primary division at Pristine Private School.

My workshop for ladies is as popular as my classes with children.

I love being around children.

Fun (weird) Facts about me  !

I am a messy crafter 😦  My desk can fill to the brim with supplies when I’m on a project !

 I love collecting  baskets, small plastic containers, small vanity pouches, and coffee mugs.

 I ‘might‘ be borderline-hoarder of craft supplies !

  6. great.
    i loved you website. it inspires one to go imaginative and try something totally different.

    so its great to see someone so busy, able to do so much.

    1. Thank you for visiting me Stacey. I think you have such adorable daughters ~ bought back lovely memories of my sister and me 🙂
      I love your tag line. It is all about our perspective. This world would be a much better place if we just stopped wearing those “eye-hoods” {not sure if that’s what they call them} that horses are made to wear for races ~ where we don’t see beyond ourselves, our homes, our friends and perhaps our country too. We tend to stick to things that are only of direct consequence to us rather than making a difference to anyone else’s life. Change is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS for the best ! Sadly very few people really embrace it. Your tag line is really deep. Loved visiting your site.

  9. Hi Naush,

    I am just following up on the mail … I do not think that you received mine. I have attached the java script here…
    I’ve just been looking through your blog and you have been busy 🙂 It looks fab!!

  10. Hi naush I love what you do and I’m totally inspired. I recently started a gift concierge service company and I would love to perfect the act of gift wrapping. Do you offer training on this. I would be in dubai soon and love to partake in your training if any while also learning about card making. Kindly reply. Thanks.

  11. hi Nuash,

    I am so happy to have found your lovable site!!! i found it while searching ways to make a door hanging. I have a welcome design in my small head but am not sure how i can actually make it and while trying to google ways through which i could actually do it i stumbled on your website. Could i come visit you and learn more from you???

    1. Hello Sanju,
      Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I will be commencing a coffee morning, very shortly, and you could join us too.
      Kindly whatsapp me and I’ll sent you the invite.
      Regards
      Naush

    1. Jazak Allah Khair sister Fahmida. That is the sweetest thing anybody has ever told me. I am humbled and honored ! May Allah swt give strength, patience and an ability to recognize their talents and gifts ~ to all of our sisters. ameen.

  13. Hi Naush!
    I thought about you last week, and today I received your email inviting me to join “LinkedIn” (but I am not a member). What a surprise, and am so glad to know that you, and your lovely family, are well and happy. Please post your new craft room photos soon! Happy New Year from me to you, with warm wishes that you are blessed in 2017 beyond your wildest dreams!
    With love,
    Margaret

    1. Oh how wonderful to hear from you Margaret !! Haven’t heard from you in quite a bit. Trust the New Year’s celebrations were great. Thank you again dear friend.

  14. Hello NAUSH, am looking for palissade transfer paper badly in UAE. Do you think you can help in finding it

    1. Hello Afra, have you tried Emirates Trading Est or Canvas art store in Dubai Mall ? If you don’t find it at both these stores, then try Souq.com
      All the best
      Naush
