Meet Viji, Our Newest Designer!


I have been a crafter since I was a kid. I made 36 cards for my dad to give to his colleagues for New Year’s when I was 12. I used scissors, blade, sketch pens and color pencils! I have done a course in Fabric Painting from Camel Institute(Something like Crayola here). I love to paint. I have done a basic course in stitching back in India. I have just started doing small stitching projects at home. I recently stitched a curtain for my sons playroom! I started scrap-booking after I came to the US(2005). I love scrap-booking! I have tons of photos to catch up!

I have worked for a total of 4 years in the Commercial banking division of Barclays Bank London and Standard Chartered Bank London back in India. I worked as an accountant in Houston for 2 years before I had Anurag. I have a Masters in Finance. I can speak 4 languages- English, Hindi, Telugu and Tamil! I live in Houston, TX but I’m originally from Chennai, India. My Favorite Music is Indian South Indian Classical (known as Carnatic) and Indian Hindi Bollywood Songs:). I can hold a tune pretty well. I love love love Indian Food, Mediterranean (love hummus!) Food and Italian Food! I love anything with chocolate!! I love water, mango milkshake and hot chocolate! I love bright colors- red, orange, yellow!! I like anything colorful!


I am turning 30 this year :( not too happy about it! I guess I will get used to it!
