A DIY Eco-Friendly Space-Saving Christmas Tree

We were searching and searching for an eco-friendly non-plastic Christmas Tree… we combed the colourful Bandra shops glittering with Christmas decor, only to find them full of plastic things.

I always emerge an hour and a couple of mini-books later, with a much calmer mind, a smile on my face and gloriously grubby hands from which Fevicol can be removed layer by layer […]

Why ‘making’ and paper craft is for everyone!

A few years ago, the Victoria & Albert Museum had curated an exhibit called ‘The Power of Making’. It really expresses what Sky Goodies believes in, so we quote from one of their curators below: About Making.Making is the most powerful way that we solve problems, express ideas and shape our world.
