A book fair and some personalised happiness :)

Anything worth doing is worth doing well. This has been my credo, my motto, my belief ever since I was old enough to have a conviction. I have held on to it steadfast through all these years.

Anything I do, I give it all I have. That is the only way I know.

When I do my portraits, I do the very best I can.
It's the same with my quilled cards.

Most of my cards have been sold.
To be very honest, the money I make from writing my books is truly a thousand times (yes a thousand!) more than what I make from selling cards! But the emotional satisfaction in being a part of the joy of the giver as well as the recipient is matchless!

I am delighted to get mails from people thanking me for adding happiness, magic and joy to their lives.

Recently I started  taking orders for customised quilled monogrammed cards. Here are a few of my latest creations. The people who ordered them were overjoyed with the results :)













The cards are all mailed in a hard envelope, well packed. I need about 4 working days from date of placing order to make a personalized card for that special person in your life.

For the prices and other details, you can mail me on ps(at)preetishenoy(dot)com.

 In the other news, I have been invited in my capacity as a popular author , to attend the National book-fair which is going on at Ahemdabad. (yeah the same one inaugurated by Narendra Modi).
The Director of the national book trust extended me the invitation and it was an honour speaking to him, as I have grown up reading books published by NBT and CBT. (national book trust and Childrens book trust) Check out their books, if you havent heard of them. They have some of the best books published in India.

I will be at Ahemdabad on 6th May. If you are around say a hello :)

And now I have to finish two more card orders!

So bye for now.
Have a super weekend! (I know I will--I will be at a book fair :) )

  4. The cards are truly very beautiful. I am so glad to hear that you are doing a brilliant job of engaging with people despite your very busy schedule. Many friends who read your book after reading my post told me that your book brought about a positive change in their relationships and interactions with others. To have been able to do so by writing a book so simple, effective and meaningful in thought, word and deed is the envy of every writer, be it a budding writer or an accomplished one.

    Please keep writing and do start on your next book soon. Cheers!

  12. I love this blog and can’t get enough of every aspect of it. You are a fabulously talented writer and manage to make everything so relatable. You are so good at this in fact, that sometimes while reading I feel like our hearts and minds become one and basically I feel as if I am reading my own thoughts.

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)
