Paper quilled cards --part 2

Read about paper quilling in this post.

This is part two of the same. Here are two more cards I made for good friends.



This one I sent to Sachin. It;s my own design. I started making it and it kind of grew!


This one was for Ramesh

Paper quilling is a truly wonderful art and for me it is a huge stress buster.  

Exciting times are ahead for me. My third book is in the final stages and I have been working non-stop for the past twenty hours.I am exhausted, tired, ready to collapse but there is this huge grin of satisfaction on my face. The book will be out on Feb 14th ! :) Yeah, it's a valentine's day gift to my readers :) The book will be published by Random House (India).


There is a nice little element of surprise in my third book. But to know what it  is, you will have to be a little bit more patient! Shall announce closer to the date of release.


Meanwhile I totally need to de-stress and I am going to quill loads this week-end.

Happy weekend to you too!

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
