         Saumya Mohanty is a classy crafter  from Mumbai.

And then one fine day she decided to take time off from her busy schedules in TV industry and settle back home with her parents to spend sometime with her passion- Crafting and there has not been any looking back since then. It has been two serious years of crafting....repetitiveness in crafting is scary for her. So she tries her best to avoid it...She loves crafting stationeries, treat bags/boxes and LO's but her current favorite is minis and mixed media.Visit her blog at http://scrapyouridea.blogspot.in/
