I’m Published?

So I’ve been sitting on this news for quite a while. I’m officially a writer now! A short story I wrote was published in an anthology by Oxford University Press. It’s called ‘I’ll Find My Way’ and my story is called ‘Step Into My Ruby Shoes’. I received the email telling me this ages ago, but didn’t want to share until I actually SAW my book in print, which I did, yesterday.

The book was launched at the Karachi Literature Festival yesterday. And we went and bought fourteen copies! 😉 Gotta give one to all those people I love. The bad thing? They didn’t even give ME a free copy. :/ Well, anyway.




Craftgardenshop – February Challenge


For the first challenge during my term, I was asked to create a project using a colour board from design seeds. This is what I came up with for my project:


This is a folder I made out of mostly handmade or ‘lying-around-the-house’ supplies. The silver paper is a wrapping paper left over, the tag is handmade with a sheet on vellum on top to make the neon pink swirls a little subtle and the clouds and hot air balloon are also hand drawn and painted.

Hope this inspires you to create a beautiful project with the colour scheme for this month! Don’t forget to link up to the craftgarden blog!

Love and hugs,
