Mixed Media Altered Hoop - Desserts

Hello Craftivators!
I hope you guys are doing well, staying home and staying safe in this extremely tough time.
I’ve quarantined myself from last week as my classes got suspended. That actually left me a lot of time to spend for myself and think about what’s going on in our lives. This time of crisis also taught me that every negative things has a positive impact on our lives too.
Thinking about the positive sides of this terrible time, I realized how much this world needed a break from us humans and how much us humans needed a break from the outside world. We really needed a break from all those extra office hours, sleepless nights trying to complete our assignments, morning alarms, traffic jams and what not!
Now that I’ve got all the time for myself, I started appreciating every little thing around me a little more than I used to and realized how much we were missing out as we were busy running for unrealistic goals whereas “There’s a moment of joy in every day”. So this is what I chose for today’s sentiment.

For today’s project, I’ll be sharing with you a Mixed Media Altered Hoop. I got inspired by the different memories I shared with my family to create today’s project. My grandma first introduced me to sewing hoops when I was a little girl and gave me one as gift. I’ve kept that for many years now but recently after seeing it again, I got this idea of altering a sewing hoop. So here it is!
I got inspired by my mum to add the photos of the desserts as she loves making desserts for me!

I also got inspired by the moodboard of the More Than Words  Challenge Moodboard to create this project. So here’s my take on their March 2020 moodboard!
