Re-Post: Notebook Cover

This is a re-Post from my facebook Notes few months back

Today I made this cheery cover for my notebook. These days are so windy and dusty that I think a cover would be necessary..:D. It's simple one, made of flanel and cotton lining. Envelope type of cover with velcro closure. Elastic on the top cover to prevent it from sliding down while it's open. So from now, at least, I dont have to dust before using it..;)

When it's open

Snugly closed

Thanks for reading this and have a great weekends ^_^

I believe: Sekar

I just want to share stories about my friend who got married, quit their 9 to 5 job to pursue what they love most, either being a homemaker, mothers or business woman. I will try to write regularly from this month

I remember my father used to tell me “As long as you can move your fingers you can earn a living” and how true it was.

I love making handmade stuff, from beadworks on scarf, cards, scrapbook, glass painting, to table. Well, it was an ugly kitchen table and I sort of cover it up with papers to make it into my study table, complete with the book racks. I wish I’ve taken the pics then..:(. I love to try different kind of craft..:D

Recently on my visit to my hometown, I met my ex-colleague who used to run a home furnishing shop. I went to her shop few years back and nothing had impressed me then. After 3 years, otw back to India I called her up and she told me she had something to show me. We met and she showed me her beautiful creations of patchwork bags and prayer mat. We keep YM-ing and FB-ing and one day I sort of tell her about Etsy. She showed me one of her latest creations : Interwoven cushion covers which really floored me! Her work is really neat and meticulous that you will fall in love instantly.

She works from one workshop near her house with only one helper. She does all the preliminary works from choosing the fabric, cutting and even stitching. What I marvel is, despite her family background, she chose to walk the unbeaten path to write her own story.

In the beginning of this month she officially opens her very own etsy shop and I’m very proud of her. I wish her all the best in her new ventures.
Thanks for reading this and have a wonderful weekends


I read one old Femina India and found these very interesting quotes:
Nandita Das (Actress) :”Woman suffer from a deep sense of guilt that stems from an even deeper conditioning. Today’s woman has a double burden of excelling in work place, which is often a male domain and being super wife, mom, daughter-in-law or home maker. The challenge for us is to be ourselves and not feel guilty for what we do or want to do. Let being pretty, smart or sexy NOT be the defining factor of our worth. Instead lets exploring our inner talents and living a life that is more fulfilling give us the confidence and desire to be who we are”

Kiran Bedi (India’s First IPS Officer): “I am challenging myself to traverse many more paths and experience newer routes to determined destinations. Or destiny sent destinations!”

Those 2 quotes really hit me today and made me think, how lucky I am that I've been blessed with the most wonderful husband, who's being an Indian male, never - not even once - trying to clip my wings but intead he gives me wings to fly. I could not ask for more.


Have a great day, everyone...
