Last week I felt this inexplicable urge to sketch. This is quite unusual considering how that is not something I do nor have I shown much interest in the various shades of grey (no pun intended). So I pulled out my stash of pencils1 ranging from HB to 8B and opened the image chosen as my first victim.

Hello world

Although this blog is about crafty things, as an engineer, I feel obliged to start with the customary greeting.

Here’s a little FAQ to help you acquaint yourself with the blog.

What is this blog about?

Crafty things! No, this blog is not about how to be a crafty (cunning) person or anything of that sort. It’s about paper crafts, doodles, and needlecraft. This list will definitely grow as I find other fascinating things.

*Groan* Another artsy blog? How is this different?

Well, I’m interested in a LOT of things. It is highly possible that I will have a post for something close to what you find exciting. I spend most of my internet time scrounging for different art forms and I pick up a subset of these. Doodling, quilling, origami, kirigami, crochet, tatting, polymer clay charms, sketching and acrylic painting – all fall in my bucket.

That’s nice! What do you do with what you make?

All my artwork is for my personal use. I make things just because I like making them. I haven’t thought of making pieces to sell and I doubt I will in the near future.

Um… That doodle/drawing/art-thing looks a lot like mine!

I do take inspiration and will definitely credit the source of my inspiration. If I’ve missed it out, don’t hesitate to drop me a message.

How often will you post?

I am considering spacing out my posts to once a week. However, reality might not align with my whims and fancies.

Happy reading!
