More stuff from The Busy Elf

A big thank you to all the lovely people who ordered stuff from 'The Busy Elf' after reading my post. 


If you haven't read my post, and don't know about 'The Busy Elf' or Keshrie please do read it before you proceed!

Keshrie was really elated when the orders started pouring in and she made a good sum in the first month.

The online store which I set up for her, doesn't seem to be working out and so we are now taking orders directly. For any orders please mail me on ps(at)preetishenoy(dot)com. The entire amount will be paid to Keshrie as soon as it is transferred by you.

You can view all her products (and the prices) on her Facebook page (which I set up for her) here:

Meanwhile Keshrie has been busy making some more stuff in between working in two houses.

Here are more of her beautiful creations:

Rs.200/- for this fabulous crocheted outfit for that little girl's doll


If you have a special girl in your life who loves her doll she will love this doll's outfit. Rs.200/-

Rs.200/- for this  crocheted dolls outfit.


 Rs.100/- each for the hairbands. The colours can be customised.
Shipping will be extra for all orders. (add Rs.100/- for shipping)







Aren't her creations really lovely?
These make great gifting options too.

Mail me [ps (at)preetishenoy(dot) com ] to place your orders.

And please note I do not take a single paisa out of  all this! I am doing it (depsite being hard pressed for time) as I want to encourage her and help such a talented person and she would never be able to sell stuff online.

Now I am getting back to my writing. (Stole some time to post this as I had promised her I would.)


See you as soon as I hit my word target for the day!
Cheerio, Toodles and Buh-bye for now :)

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.
