Featured on Kreative Korner

Hi All,

Good Morning and Welcome to Ruby's Palette once again !

A big thanks to Tanya from Kreative Korner for the lovely feature on my blog. She has done a wonderful job of putting this together and I enjoyed going through the post completely ..smiles..

Here’s a sneak peek of what she says about Ruby’s Palette-

Introducing Ruby

The two things that come to my mind instantly when I am expecting guests, be it family or friends, are- 1) the house should be at it's best to welcome them and 2) what am I gonna serve to tickle their taste buds. Once I have handled these two, the other things just follow suit.

However, hosting guests, here on the blog, relives me of even these two. No cooking. No cleaning. Only fun and talking.

Talking about talking, I should rather stop talking and let our guest do the talking. Over to Ruby... 

Its indeed a pleasure to be guest posting at Kreative Korner today. Would like to thank Tanya for inviting me to author at Kreative Korner. Looking forward to many more wonderful collaborations in future. Tanya is doing a great job at her blog and wishing her all the best !

For the entire feature hop on here.

Hope you enjoyed going through the post as much I did putting it together…smiles..

So, what brings me here? 

Ruby and I share our love for colors and art. So, we thought, why not blog-swap! For today, I have the keys to her blog space and she has for mine. And now that I am here, let me introduce myself and Kreative Korner to you. I am a Computer Science Engineer by profession but technology is the last thing we talk about at Kreative Korner.

You'll see some of my paintings, a lot of thrifty projects, pictures from my garden & kitchen and also a mention of all the wonderful people in my life. Now, that is not it. There is a lot of random babbling as well... because when you write, you just write- nobody dares to  interfere ;)

While coming from Kreative Korner to Ruby's Palette, I grabbed a few pictures to share with you all. 

Let me start off with my paintings.

Hi guys ! I am excited to announce the opening of my Etsy shop, RubysPalette. It is the desire to create something unique everytime and the happiness to share my creations with others which prompted me to open the shop. Currently few items are added and I will be soon adding more. And if you could visit my new shop and favourite it, that would be wonderful...smiles....              Ruby

Pink Blossom - Speed Painting

One fine day had to meet a friend and suddenly she said she would like to have one of my paintings. Yes, I wanted to gift her one but, didn't have anything ready. So, sat down with my canvas and tools and came up with the "Pink blossom" in two hours as I didn't have much time in hand.This would be one of my speed paintings. She was quite happy with the outcome. Waiting for the framed pic on her wall. Hope you like it too!                                  P.S. The camera hasn't done justice to the painting as the colours haven't come exactly as it's in the painting.                                                                                                                  Ruby.
