The entire afternoon, yesterday, I spent painting these rocks that Pari and I had collected last year during a nature walk. I'd been wanting to paint them for long now but could never lay my hands on them – until yesterday.
And, I can say with conviction – I find my peace in art, painting and DIY. It transports me to the land of serenity and helps me connect with my inner self…
I used acrylic colours, glitter glue, waterproof black ink and a fine paint brush to make these.
Hope you like them as much as I enjoyed painting them.

I passionately believe in the saying – "Leave them better than you found them"!
Painted these for Pari. Lady bug is her favourite creepy-crawly and strawberry – her favourite fruit! No wonder, because red has been her fav colour – ever since she was a new born! 15 days into her birth, she would respond to this colour in an excited way!
Painted this in black water-proof ink.

I need help sustaining this blog…
Dear blog readers – It’s been exactly eight years now that I’ve been writing on this blog! Yes, eight long years and hundreds of articles. From art, creativity and learning to food, health, gardening, travel, sustainable and mindful living, natural birth – in our un-schooling life, as we go on introspecting, questioning and evolving, I’ve strived to share our stories and experiences with as much honesty, care and sincerity as possible.
The most important thing for me is to keep this blogging endeavour authentic and true to my values. This blog has been my sacred space to express, share, feel empowered and contribute. Hence, I do not like to support businesses that don’t align with my values. So far, I’ve rarely taken sponsorship from brands and companies. I haven’t placed any ads on my blog, though there have been multiple offers.
Infact, I’d like to keep this blog ad free unless something truly meaningful comes across.
Yet, there’s a cost to running this blog. The basic cost of keeping the domain alive, and hosting all this content on. I spend roughly INR 10,000 (USD 173) just to keep this blog up and running. So, I need to cover this cost. Plus, it’d be nice to bring in some income for our family of four. And, this is where I request your support.
If you find my articles and stories useful or inspiring at some level, please help me sustain. Starting from 1 dollar to whatever you can, do consider donating for the content I share; the time and effort I put. Your support will go a long way in keeping this blog (of 8+ years) sparkling with stories for many more years to come. Thank you, dear ones. I’ll value what you’ll gift with love and kindness. :-)
