Champagne for celebration!

Lata's picture

Rani's third anniversary announcement triggered a quick time check regarding others' anniversaries and hence this celebratory-champagne kolam! :love: We're celebrating some of our long-term members' anniversaries here at ikolam! I need to start mentioning from a few of our members that have been actively posting here for the past seven years! I'll then mention members that have been with us for six years, five years, four, and then three. Since it is already past 12am where I live, I'm going to write the names in the morning. But you're more than welcome to guess out the names/yrs here in comments to have some fun. Biggrin

The floor is wooden, the medium is rice paste, the coloring at the bottom is colored sand. At the top you will see the bottles colored as champagne bottles in Photoshop. Hope you like it. Smile

In the meantime, cheers to you, you and you! Let's party! :party: :beer:

This is so funny! Somebody just emailed me asking if they could go the member galleries and look at the first uploads of some of the members, to determine the number of years they have been with us. :bigsmile: Why not! Yes, that's is a quick way and no I'm not going to reveal your name for trying. Dont' worry. :beer: :bigsmile:

Waw, I am so happy that I'll atleast get some few drops to taste from this lovely champagne bottle! Wink ( I do not think gallery will give accurate answer)
But Lata, I feel so many senior members of ikolam will wake up now and become active again after this survey!
Good work. All the best :bigsmile:
By the way your twin chikku kolams are very cute. Admired the bottle colouring.

Do you know, she didn't mix water with the flour. Since champagne is so cheap in CA, she mixed champagne to get the wet flour Smile Regards! - mOhana

True, there are many others who joined earlier than rANI ma'am. But who can beat her in the output? Not the so-called senior members! Regards! - mOhana

Thank you so much all of you, for your lovely comments! And thank you Lakshmi for selecting my kolam as rod. I was thrilled. Biggrin

As we can all see from the table above, we have been blessed to have members who have been active for so long, in sharing their works and thoughts in this site. The years have gone by so busily, and I feel bad for not celebrating so many anniversaries! Each day was a creative one and am glad nowadays some of our long-term members have started announcing their anniversaries in the site. :bigsmile: :beer:
