I am honoured to share my journey here at 'Indian Creative Mothers'. I'm Ann - Mom to a 4 year old, Founder & Blogger at Al Things Beautiful, and a User Experience Design Consultant in an IT firm. For over 10 years, I have been designing digital apps and learning about how people experience digital products. I grew up and live in Bangalore with my husband and young son, they inspire me daily and make me use my creativity in new ways.
Motherhood is truly a remarkable gift and a privilege that I hold very close to my heart. To me, being a mother means to be fearless, to be a positive role model, to be a continuous cheerleader for every milestone my child will experience, to demonstrate the abundance of unconditional love that will empower and strengthen my child.
“There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.” —Jill Churchill
Since the time my little one was 1.5 years old, I began engaging him in kid’s art and crafts - both of us enjoyed this activity and I wanted to document and share our creative activities to inspire other moms. My son's Creativity, Positivity and Influence has been the driving energy to launch my blog Al Things Beautiful in 2016, which led to a whole new adventure in Art, Craft and Home Decor. It’s been an enriching experience to learn, explore creative techniques, photograph and blog about these projects. I believe that in the process of creating something new, you may find a hidden flair or a talent that was buried deep inside you all your life that you can now proudly list as one of your abilities. My son is the inspiration and creative energy behind the success of my blog and we try to do something every day in our home art studio to create something new and exciting. Being creative has a positive impact on both parents and kids and it's important for all of us to meaningfully spend our time. My goal is that each and everyone visiting my blog receives a beneficial takeaway from the content.
I am grateful and honoured that launching my blog has provided me with a platform to collaborate with great creative brands from across the globe and to be a Design Team member with Itsy Bitsy India.
Al Things Beautiful is among the TOP 100 Craft Blogs on the web and has been nominated for the Indian Blogger Awards & at the Amara Interior Blog Awards held at UK. I'm motivated to see many of my DIY Home Decor tutorials being featured on popular global platforms such as HomeTalk, CraftGawker, Reddit and more.
It's the support and encouragement of family, friends and well wishers who help me balance my day and tasks.
We are all blessed with creativity and talent in some way or the other and it's our own responsibility to use our skills to inspire others and spread goodwill.
My goal is to inspire individuals to tap into their creative potential. I do hope and wish that each and everyone visiting my blog is inspired by creative ideas.
Let the ‘Inspiration, Imagination, and Innovation’ grow bigger and better!
