Doodle and be happy

Doodling is a very easy and beautiful way to keep our self motivated and creatively charged. Being at work does not allow me much time to do so with finesse .. and being at home and trying to do so is even more difficult with my toddler so curious about what mamma is doing?
But stopping to doodle is the worst thing one can do. I did that too and I know how big it is a challenge for people in the creativity field to sit with pen and paper and spend time deciding what to doodle.
I recently got over it and started doodling again. Here are some of them.

Anniversary Cards

“It takes three to make love, not two: you, your spouse, and God. 
Without God people only succeed in bringing out the worst in one another. 
Lovers who have nothing else to do but love each other soon 
find there is nothing else. 

Without a central loyalty life is unfinished.” 

I have tried to keep this habit of making an art every anniversary .. just with a thought that later in life it will be just nice to look at them :) 
So in our four years of marriage here are the four cards.

Second anniversary I was pregnant with Sanvi, my beautiful girl.
And we were eagerly waiting for her.

The 3rd one we had a new member with us and the journey begins with a new passenger on board. Also, my husband was passionately visiting the gym those days ;)

The fourth one was a beautiful one with our lil girl more responsive and making us laugh and happy all the time. It was raining and I had my obsession with patterns. Sanvi loved her Hello Kitty.

Also it will be a nice way to know my own art skills and the changes over the years.

Mother Daughter Hair stories

I have inherited dry and curly hair from my parents . I do not know from my father or my mother, as both the sides share the same hair stories. And I have seen my mother go through a lot of trouble taking care of my hair in every way that was possible for her.  

So before my baby was born I was a little anxious about that. I secretly wanted her to have my curly hair as nothing beats the uniqueness and beauty of it (and it looks so cute on babies), but I was also worried about the high maintenance aspect of it. 

Well my baby managed to inherit the beautiful silky hair texture of her father's side... and guess what? I sighed with relief :P 

Yesss!!! what you see below is my hair and its natural. 

Now being a working woman and a busy mother of a really active toddler I don't really get time to "Recharge my hair". I just try to oil regularly and follow some tips that sunsilk has in the gorgeous website. Recharging  my hair keeps my worries away and i can play with my toddler nonstop all day long, be it in the park, the beach, building sand castles or while enjoying the sunroof with her during a drive without worrying about the mess. Trust me .. when curly hair dries naturally it looks awesome.

A ve
ry close to heart "mother - daughter" experience I would like to share here:
My mother was a dedicated pink Sunsilk user throughout her life .. I think ever since it was available in India. Like right from her college days till today. Never seen such brand loyalty ever. I believe every mother's scent of her hair stays in the children's memories and they always remember it. For me it is the old pink sunsilk.

I generally document my "mother  daughter" stories in my other blog "life with sanvi"  you can find more stories there.
