Cupcakes, Conversation and Chai



You are invited :)
 It is going to be a discussion on importance of friendship, modern day relationships, marriages, and how different living in a big city versus living in a small place is.


There is going to be Chai and cupcakes and of course conversation too.
Event is open to all but it will be really nice if you confirm, as Vani  Mahesh of easylib is making all the arrangements to see that everyone has a great time.

Those of you have read the book (and the acknowledgement section) will know Ramesh of Business Musings was one of the first to read the manuscript, even before I submitted it to the publishers.
I was delighted when he confirmed today that he will definitely be there.

Am looking forward to meeting you all.

Meanwhile, I have been making cards.

Sharing a few I made recently. (The people who ordered them as well as the recipients were delighted!)














And this is a card which was made to order,  for a little girl who turned seven:





Liked them? :)
Well, you know what to do! :)

    I have lost so many occassions of meeting you in person and telling you how much of an influence you have been in my life :)

    Needless to add, the cards are beautiful...am keeping my fingers crossed. Hoping someday I get to meet you in person!

  5. All your cards are beautiful, preeti. Especially like the cutie doll one. I make some too once in a while, but more than making them, the delight on the recipient's face make them all worthwhile!!!! It puts a beautiful smile that comes straight from their heart. I can imagine how yours must have felt for them.
    Hugs,
    Gayu

  6. Preeti I really adore your fervor towards life but however I avoid I am becoming reluctant to life ... I find nothing but a dark gloomy person inside me...I may find little help with your perspective.. I find life all useless and a drag and what puzzles me is the fact i don't know why ?

  7. I have noticed the changed appearance of your blog today only, its nice. In fact, now it looks more organised. The cards that you display have a lot more meaning than being just a card. Its a symbol of attachment, love, dedication, efforts, perfection and lot many worth learning things.
    Thank you.

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.

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…
