Bookmarks! Never ever thought that I would fall into books so much. I love reading as much as I love drinking coffee. Coffee and a book, a perfect combination!
It’s been two years that I have started reading. Of course, I used to read when I was in school and college to score some good marks. But was never into fictions, biography, etc. I met a friend in my final year who is a book lover too. She suggested me to read Dan brown,and since then I started reading.
So reading is one thing, which I love. But I can never leave design and calligraphy. My day does not end without a scribble. It’s like breathing for me. When ever I took a break from reading for which I used a paper clip to hold a page where I stopped, I have now started using thick paper strips with a beautiful quote on it. These quotes, are written by famous people, anonymous, etc. I started writing them on these strips of paper using my calligraphy and typographic skills.All I need is a paper and a pen, and I have a bookmark ready in a couple of minutes. I am obsessed with these bookmarks and they are very dear to me as they are handmade and I have put all my heart into it while making them.
Bookmark making, is like my favourite thing to do! Stop using these paper clips for a while and use some of your handmade skills and make some awesome and cute bookmarks!
Enjoy making one for yourself too!

Hey, doodle talk today?
What happens when we are stuck with a pen and a note? Yeah, we end up doodling. Printed letters turning our to be faces and hands, underlined words kind of a train, decorative borders appears round the corner. Done with the entire thing, the whole thing turns out to be scribbled over.
What are Doodles?
Doodles may be anything – shapes, patterns, drawings or scribbles; anything we create in our idle time while focus of our attention is elsewhere. It’s super amazing to know how creative we can be without even trying! Doodles seem to take their own shape strangely in the end.
“We create doodle without thinking, sometimes they can be revealing like our body language that we are not even aware of.”
They may be precise, complex or child-like but in the end they look like works of art.
Why do we doodle?
Sometimes, we get tense and frustrated and doodling helps relieve boredom and frustration. The urge to doodle gets stronger as stress levels rise. Doodles are like a way of a map that shows how one’s mind works.
“One of the best things about doodling is that no one will tell us what we have to do and how do we have to do. It is totally our imagination and idea which come together as a piece of an art.”
Everything in a doodle related in someway to the person who as drawn it or visualised it.
Doodles are puzzling, full of bizzare images which makes no sense, rather like dreams.
