YouTube Silver button price less

What is the YouTube silver button price - it is price less for me ! Two years back I shared my experience in posting rangoli on YouTube.   As a recap ,  I am a traditional home maker from India .  So  I take care of my family.  After two decades as a home maker I wanted to do some thing, achieve something.  My husband gave me the idea of having a blog for rangoli and my son suggested that I upload rangoli videos on YouTube..  So I had my first email ( you read  it right , my first account in 2012 )  .  Using the account I started a blog and started posting rangoli designs.    Then I started posting some amateurish videos on YouTube with rangoli  or kolam as the theme.   In 2015 I received an email from YouTube asking me to share my mobile number because they wanted to discuss with me.  After checking that the email was actually from YouTube I mailed my number.   They were surprised that my Channel was becoming popular though only my hand was visible in my videos.  They wer

15-8 dots muggulu duck muggulu designs

One more popular muggu drawn for festivals like Sankranti or New Year.  For such occasions we can fill the muggu with beautiful colours.   Mark the dots as shown in the image below with circles .  This will be useful as reference for drawing the ducks. Proceed to draw the ducks one by one Another view of the birds being drawn A close up view of the muggu Next mark the eyes of the ducks inside at six positions as shown . Using the eyes as reference draw the ducks one by one This image shows drawing of the ducks in progress Fill with colours,  I have decorated with shades of white rangoli only Connect the head to the central floral design There are many methods of drawing a rangoli with dots.  Free hand designs flow from our imagination and hence it is better to follow it to  create one.  Dot muggulu on the other hand can be drawn in several methods.  It is like solving a math problem.  There may be many methods but we must try to find

8 by 8 dots rangoli 8-8 dots kolam

8 x 8 dots rangoli  A common rangoli with dots , such square dot patterns with 8 dots are not common in Tamil Nadu.  I would like to share some of the designs. This is slightly tricky, connecting the dots with straight lines,  the images should help make the steps easy for those who may need them. Always it is advisable to draw the easiest patterns first so that the remaining dots can be used to create the more complicated ones.  Accordingly four butterflies are drawn at the four corners. The first step of connecting the dots with straight lines. The next step connecting the dots with lines parallel to the first. This leaves two dots on four sides and four dots at the centre as in the picture above. Connect the four outer dots with curved lines. Butterfly like patterns can be replaced with floral designs also. 8 pulli sikku kolam | 8 dots sikku kolam The images show the steps to make the kolam easy to understand and draw.  Sikku kolam are

I have stopped at the white rangoli step . First place two rows of 12 dots Then ten to two dots on either side Marking the edges of the wings on the butterfly wings by connecting the dots makes it easy for us to draw the kolam quickly Next the thorax of the butterfly ( you guessed it right , I studied Biology !) Another step in this kolam The next two images show the creation of the wings by connecting the dots Next comes the neck and antennae , these are drawn free hand because they form outside the dot pattern.  If
