All tiny things!

“All beautiful things come in small packages!”

Isn’t it? I made a miniature version of one of my favorite books.

A perfect gift for all the book lovers; along with the real book, ofcourse! 🙂

Have a great Sunday!

Why reading makes me happy?

I always loved reading as a child. I had a little library of my own with a collection of my favorite books. My favorite book as a child was Enid Blyton’s “The Enchanted Wood” and the “The Faraway Tree” series. I still dream about the characters and the dreamy lands described in those books. It took me to a magical world that I still want to explore. Some stories stay with you forever, isn’t it?

But, in the last few years, my passion for reading got lost somewhere. And, now I know what I have been missing all these years.

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
–Vera Nazarian

Reading makes me happy. I love everything about it. I love – 

1. the smell of a book.

2. the fact that it takes you to a completely new world.

3. the fact that reading helps you grow as a person. It helps you get better at that language and improve your vocabulary.

4. that it offers you an opportunity to learn so much.

5. that it makes you a better person.

A book is a dream that you hold in your hand.
–Neil Gaiman

I wish I could read all day long. But, as that is too much to ask for, I have (strictly!) decided that I read a little every single day. No exceptions! 🙂

Here are my two new books –

Moms, You are AWESOME!

Turning book into an art!

Recently, I saw some amazing displays of book art (book sculptures) on Pinterest. And, I fell in love with this art form almost instantly. It’s so innovative! It was hard to believe that such beautiful displays can be made out from a book. I was so inspired by it that I felt that I should give it a shot too.

So, here is my (serious) attempt at it.    

  

As they say, one should not stop learning. So, what did I learn from this. I learnt – 

1. To be patient. This art form takes time and lots of detailing.

2. That it should not be completed in one go. Do it over a few days (depending on how big the task is). That way you can enjoy it more.

3. That it’s very important to choose proper space for the installation or the display.

4. That the end result of your hard work really gives you happiness, especially, when you learn something new.

So, how did you find my first attempt guys? I plan to give it another shot in future with a hope to do even better 🙂
