New Novel – Bridge to Nowhere

Hello! I’m already back with some exciting news. My younger sister, Ranya Sharma, just published a book, Bridge to Nowhere. I’ve read it, and she has done quite a phenomenal job on it. The book is now on Amazon, in case you were wondering. It is a fantasy book about a young girl named Scarlett and her adventures through magic portals as she tries to make her way back home. The exciting part – I illustrated the cover! Of course, this was my family’s first time publishing a novel, so the cover was a little unprofessional (the title and author name was written twice), but we learn from our mistakes. Ranya is an aspiring author, who I think you guys should all check out. Thanks, and don’t forget to comment!

Mini Book

Picture 016Picture 017Picture 018 Hi, again! I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been really busy. To relieve all that stress, I thought, “Why not do some crafting?” I saw this idea on another blog which had a video and step by step instructions. I love crafting mini things, so I thought that this one was exceptionally cute. Here is the link to create this mini book:( http://www.paperkawaii.com/2011/07/25/mini-origami-book-tutorial/ ) Her book is just origami and for display, so she glues all of her papers together. In my book, I can draw in it (the drawing of the girl in the dandelion garden is my 4th page drawing). I skipped the step of gluing the papers together. It depends on what you want to do. My pages are different shades of brown – just for a little bit of a vintage look. For my cover, I used red organic paper from Sikkim (another one of my trips a couple years ago). To finish it off, I added a little embroidery floss and cute stickers. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and don’t forget to add a little of your own flair! Thanks, and don’t forget to comment!
