This is Shruthi!!! a day dreamer and explorer by heart… passionate about cooking , photography & decor.
Where are you from?
I’m originally from South India – Hyderabad city, but I’ve been living in US (
Cupertino (CA), Chicago (IL), Virginia) for the past 12 years.
What made you decide to start this blog?
I have been blogging for so many years regarding food and my Project 365 but honestly never thought I could blog about decor or any kind of my art work. But after visiting Vidya’s blog ‘Whats Ur Home Story’ I was so inspired with her creativity and other things and decided to create a blog where I can talk about little bit of my art work and also few projects which I have been working.
What does Jhopri mean?
Jhopri means hut which is made of mud/sand or dried grass/wood, but it for me it signifies a house where you can create or mold it any way.
What camera do you use for your blog?
When I started my food blog, I had a basic camera and I always loved it. After couple of years I realized that the photos were quite shoddy and needed to capture anything just as beautifully as they are. That’s where I got my new Nikon D5000, ever since I have been working on bettering my photographs.
Where do you get your craftiness/Paintings from?
My Mom and grandmom! they both are incredibly creative! my mom’s paintings and grandmom’s embroidary works inspires me everyday to do something unique.Every detail is carefully considered to make sure it all comes together! All of my confidence in doing paintings or crafts comes from knowing I have a talented mom & grandmom!
