Boomarks for sea lovers

This is the time for lovely drizzles, caressing winds and heavy downpours. With the North-east monsoon setting in followed by a string of storms, we are in for a wet spell. Caught frequently in the rain, sometimes running for shelter and at times enjoying a good drenching, I am enjoying myself 🙂 Tribute to this season, here comes my latest set of bookmarks featuring marine life.

My free handsketchs and acrylic paintings made in to bookmarks… Here are images of a few:

Cutie fishes

Strolling Lobster

Curious Octopus

For details and more photos of these bookmarks, please visit Papyrus or Handmade Heaven.

Books are a treasure in every home… Bookmarks are the crowning glory to this treasure.



Getting started – with Papyrus

I have been planning, thinking and dreaming about opening an online shop for my handmade products. After spending a long time dreaming about it, I have finally found the courage to work on it 🙂

I have started an online shop in Etsy. It took some time to work on the products I have to focus on for the Etsy shop. I am now searching for ways to promote it.

I am not sure how successful it is going to be, but I am happy that I have finally put my plan into action.

Please check out my shop and share your thoughts on it.

After spending years crafting and painting within my room, I started this blog about a year back. From the wonderful support I have received from the lovely people who visit my  blog, I have started spending every minute of my spare time in coming up with new crafty ideas. I value your comments and feedbacks. So please do check my online shop and share your comments. 

I have also started another blog “Handmade Heaven” to showcase products added to the Etsy shop.  This new blog is eager to welcome you with open hands 🙂 I hope you enjoy it  and visit it often.

Handy bookmarks

A table with interesting books and equally interesting bookmarks is a delight to the eye. Being tired of the usual bookmarks found in shops, I tried doing my own bookmarks. Here are a few I made over the last couple of weeks:

Peacock and blues ~ Blue stones on the crest and peacock decoupage work

White and browns ~ Pen sketches on white background ~ City line, Dancing flowers and Splashing Coke.
