All this month of January, Adithis Amma Sews will be hosting this Blog Hop for the Asia Region!  So be prepared to meet talented, crafty, interesting personalities every Wednesday!

Now it's our turn to meet Neha from Steps Towards Crafting, who excels in the field of Paper Crafts.

 Hi Neha, I would like to extend you a warm welcome to our Creative Blog Hop. I am so glad to have you here. As one can see from you blog, you have a 'special place in your heart' for Paper Crafts, don't you, so share with us as to how it all started?

I love paper craft...Before past 7 months i used to make simple cards mostly having doodling on it....sometimes i tried pop ups and other shapes the attempts just led to wastage....from March/April 2010 when i joined my first office and i was free so in free time i starting searching handmade cards and card making techniques and the journey begin :) which is really never ending.

Which is your favorite out of all the paper crafts?

I love card making....and Paper quilling as technique most. i want to try many other techniques as well like Distressing, Punch craft, Stamping, Embossing but i havent yet bought all tools for them

Quilling is my favourtie too, though i am no way near to what you make :) What other new craft would like to add to your crafting Armour?

Trousseau packing, Making Bead Flowers, Soft Toys

What inspires your creations? mood, the occasions and my fellow crafters :)

You already had an exhibition of your creations at your office. How was the response?

The response was amazing. It was first of its kind of exhibition ever in Aricent Gropu. The main thing is that seeing my efforts for exhibition many of my collegues and employees asked me about how i think of exhibition in office, how i initialted, to whom i talked and take permission from.

What's up in future? more such exhibitions, online store, what are your plans?
 Exhibitions are there in the spectrum  for sure. I am not interested in opening online store as there are already many people and fellow crafters who are doing that. so i think if all will start selling then where will be the buyers :) My friends who love my craft suggest (or i should say force) me to open my own brand like Archie but i am not yet ready for it as ii will need a good investment and risks. So i am not yet prepared

Wish you all the best for your business proposals when the time is right for you. BTW do you have some exciting tutorials to share with our readers regarding the paper crafts on your blog?

 Yes! i shared tutorial on making Photoframe on my blog. and people really liked it
Do you take personalized craft orders?
Yes i do take orders.

Do you have any craft item as memorabilia of your crafting days during childhood? drawings...sply cartoons of Micky Minny Donald etc. and some handmade crafts like Fabric flowers and some recycled crafts like decorated rubber ball :)
Wow cartoon characters are every child's favourite, aren't they?! Whom do you draw inspiration from in the blog land as well as real world? 

From my fellow crafters, from things around me, etc. :)

You can view all of my works @ - Steps Towards Crafting
