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


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. :)

    Also after seeing your quilling posts which you had made long time ago...I had begun to learn quilling and from there my craft senses had become active!! Thanks for that too ma’am.

    1. I am happy to see you on my blog too :)

  6. it's true that our outlook can make difference . This is common at every household. (yes,there are some exceptions,I respect them . I'm always surprised with the thought how they keep their home neat and tidy?) Ok,but it is good habit and I have to follow them. This habit keeps us fresh, it helps to boost our confidence in work also.

    I really like this blog. thanks.

  7. Lovely idea,Preeti 👍

  8. Lovely idea mam and it looks so good

  9. Good one, Preethi, but what about the dangers of any sparks and the possibility of fire?

    1. Grounds AC power with 3-line protection through all 8 sockets
      Maximum Spike Current: 13,000 Amps ! It has never ever sparked as the response time is less than a nano second. Hence I don't think there's a danger of spark as it will fuse before that. Have used it for more than 3 years now :) But if you are afraid, I guess you shouldn't use it!! :)

  13. Hi Preeti! This is very creative. Nice to see this and since I buy stuff on Amazon all the time, perhaps I will try to create the same thing. Not sure if it will turn out like yours though...It's perfect!

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.

When it comes to book marketing--there are two schools of thought. Some writers believe that the  marketing is not their job. They believe that their job ends when they send off the manuscript after the final  the edits. They think it is primarily the publisher's responsibility.

Marketing is indeed hard work and most writers (including me) detest it. If you ask me, I would rather sit in my cocoon and start writing my next book. (as that is what I enjoy most)

But here's why I do it.

1. Being on the bestseller charts does matter to me. Now while content is the single most important thing, good content alone won't help. Marketing is essential. My book Life …

How have you been?

There are just 14 days left for the release of my new book Wake Up, Life is Calling. The trailer above tells you in brief about the book. Do watch it!

The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…
