Rimjhim Garg

Hi, My name is Rimjhim..I am a business analyst by profession and crafter by choice. Crafting and painting is just like a meditation for me. I am into arts since my childhood. But then came into IT sector and decided to pursue my hobby along with it. I came back to painting first. After a gap of many years and then got interested in crafting. I am basically into wood works, decoupage and painting. Though, I don’t limit myself to this. I keep experimenting with mixed media and scrapbooking too.

Rupa Swaminathan and Tanvi Shah are my biggest inspiration. They are like my motivating factor. I learn a lot from them.

While I have a job of 9-6, I somehow manage to take out time for my crafting. So, I have a fixed routine- 9-6 office, 6:30-7:30 aerobics/badminton and then 8-12 my crafting.. I like to keep myself busy..LOL..

I came across Zibica last year. I felt it’s an amazing initiative where all the crafters get a chance to showcase their work and earn at the same time. I am selling nameplates, dreamcatchers etc on Zibica.

Anita Orlene

Hi, I’m Anita Orlene, a civil engineer and craftsperson. Having a mother and grandmothers who were talented crafts-persons, it was only natural that I followed in their footsteps.

While i have always pursed crafty activities it was only when my daughter was born, and I found the clothes in the market were not to my liking that i started sewing her clothes and later crocheting and knitting for her. As she grew, I started making soft toys too.

Now that the kids have grown, and my interest in my hobbies has not lessened I have started selling what I make. I enjoy sewing, embroidery, crochet, knitting, paper-craft, jewellery making, felt crafts (to list a few). I also free-lance as a 3D visualizer for architects.

Vinita Bajla

Hello, all!

2016-03-20 17.21.07

I am Vinita Bajla from Bangalore. I have been crafting passionately for more than two years. My forte is Decoupage. This is an ancient technique by which slivers of paper are stuck on wood, glass, plastic, etc and then lacquered with many coats for a couple of days. It is a very laborious yet an interesting art. The final result seems like the surface has been painted. Decoupage can be done on home décor items like trays, birdhouses, drawers, glass bottles, hangers, paper weights, pen-stands, cutlery stand, caddy boxes, watch boxes, jewellery boxes, office stationery and many more.

I learnt Decoupage two years back and instantly fell in love with the art. I found it interesting that different papers like cardstock, wrapping paper, newspaper, tissue-paper etc work differently on different surfaces. I thoroughly enjoy hand painting, stencilling, stamping on my decoupage products. Every time when I fall in love with my own products, I know my client is going to love them too.

My other passion is paper craft like envelopes, invites, etc for all occasions.I love customizing an order for a valued client and believe in giving joy to the person who receives it. I ensure high quality and good finishing in all products.

“To me art is a therapy and Gulmohar Galore is about fulfilling little dreams of people”
