It was indeed an interesting weekend for me. Ever since we had started Woodooz, I have been blogging from the confines of our home and never ventured out to meet fellow bloggers. Blog meets are not new to me and I have made many a friends through this medium – Only, it was through my personal blog which is pretty much dormant now. 
The Chennai bloggers meet organized by Indiblogger and sponsored by ITC Grand Chola was a good start. Though I would love to network more at these meets, I am telling myself now to loosen up a bit from the next time on.

We had a guided tour of the entire ITC Grand Chola property and while there was so much splendor and sumptuousness and opulence everywhere (and I shall talk about that in a different context later), the DIYer in me was inadvertently drawn towards potential DIY inspirations. I have given new projects a break and this was a good opportunity for me to scout for ideas and garner some self-motivation. At the end of the meet, I walked out with 4 photos, and only 4 photos, on what I thought would be good, easy, doable projects to work on in the coming days. 

My love for lampshades drew me naturally to this beautiful one at the entrance of Grand Cholas Italian Restaurant, Ottimo Cucina Italiana. It was a simple cane enclosure placed on a high pedestal and it made up for a beautiful floor lamp.

The wall above the master bedroom headboard is bare and white and needs some life. We have been discussing an enlarged canvas photo of us together. But now, Preethi wants to give this shelf (Clicked at ITC Grand Chola's Tranquebar) a second thought. An assortment of picture frames with a focus light can certainly be something refreshing. I have to go to Konica for the enlarged canvas photo, but this shelf, I can make. So you certainly know by now what am canvassing for.

The tree trunk center table was rustic and yet classy and I could not let it pass. If not a center table, this is an idea I can execute to use as a small stool. Maybe something for the balcony. I have to find the source from a nearby lumber and am assuming it will require lot of sanding to smoothen the rough patches. If I ever get around to indulge in this, it would certainly be a very exciting project.

Floating shelves (Clicked at the The Cheroot Malt and Cigar Lounge) are something I want to do for the heck of it. For no rhyme. For no reason. The illusion of being on the wall without any apparent support is something very attention-grabbing. I still don’t know how it can be installed, especially with hardware constraints in Chennai, and that mystery only adds to the excitement value.

The range of food was appealing to my sense of smell and taste. The visual extravaganza and the magnificence of the newly inaugurated ITC Grand Chola were alluring to my sense of sight. On the whole, it was a very fulfilling and rewarding experience. Now it is all about putting my action items into actual action.

Do you think these DIY projects are practicable? Have you ever been to a place of importance, but been drawn to accompanying objects of less interest to others, because you are passionate about them? Share your thoughts. Leave your comment.

If you have not noticed yet, we have moved on from blogger (  to a custom domain ( Today, we take a certain amount of pride in having effected this migration to a custom domain. All credits to you for relentlessly visiting us and giving us your words of encouragement through your comments and visits. There are few reasons why we were compelled to move to a custom domain and we thought it is only apt we share it here.

1. We are serious about Woodooz

While we started making projects for our own use, we were also happy to honor requests from friends and family, who incidentally were willing to pay for it. We realized we were in love with this obsession and noticed we were putting in more seriousness, passion and commitment into what we were doing. Thought this was a way to show the world too that we are indeed serious about Woodooz.

2. We didn't like our E-mail address it was. Though we would have preferred Woodooz, it was sadly taken by someone else :( We believed in having the same identity across platforms and somehow this email thing was irking. But now, we have for general queries and we thought it will give the blog a more professional distinction.
