Seven Year Itch ... #BarAThon

I am taking part in the Blog-A-Rhythm Bar-a-thon challenge. The theme can be anything that requires grit and endurance, but not necessarily fitness related. And there are daily prompts. 

So my theme is simple, it's a blogging marathon about things to do with me in pictures, starting at one and ending at seven. 

Today's prompt is Seven Year Itch

I love little trinket boxes. This is another one of my indulgences. I just can't resist a trinket box.

Here are seven boxes from my collection. Most of them are papier mache and from India. I love shopping in India as you can find so many beautiful boxes to buy. 

There was a time when I was buying boxes regularly or being given one for a birthday or Christmas.

I think the last time I bought some boxes was in early 2011 on my last visit to India 

It's been seven years now and I think it's time for some buying. My fingers are itching to pick up a box or two. 



What are your fingers itching to do? Share in the comments below.

Six Minutes Of Fame ... #BarAThon

I am taking part in the Blog-A-Rhythm Bar-a-thon challenge. The theme can be anything that requires grit and endurance, but not necessarily fitness related. And there are daily prompts. 

So my theme is simple, it's a blogging marathon about things to do with me in pictures, starting at one and ending at seven. 

Today's prompt is Six Minutes Of Fame

For a few years now I have been interested in arts and crafts. Supplies are very expensive so I have been collecting them steadily over the years. So here are six of my art supplies that I enjoy using. 


Watercolour is my favourite medium. I have five sets of watercolour paints, all of course student grade as artist grade are very expensive. For the type of painting I do, student grade is good enough.

I was introduced to Inktense by my friend who is also an artist and paints primarily in acrylics and oil. She was kind enough to lend me her inktense pencils as a trial and I enjoyed using those hence I ordered the inktense blocks. 

I use acrylics for mixed media painting and journalling. Acrylics are not my favourite medium but I do enjoy using them. I have only 1 box of acrylic paints that has lasted a long time so obviously I don't use them as much as my watercolours.

I was intrigued with watersoluble crayons and when the Crayola Portfolio set went on sale at a throwaway price on Amazon, I promptly ordered them. Pleasantly surprised, this is a medium I could grow to love. 

Lately I have started vlogging about my artwork and crafts and I am truly enjoying the vlogging experience. Check out some of my art and craft vlogs -  


I also vlog on other subjects - check out my vlog posts on my blog Someday Somewhere

Here is a quick look at my watercolour painting vlog.

And where does the prompt fit into all of this? Well, my YouTube stats tell me that I have had 165 views and 164 minutes of watch time. So perhaps I've already had my six minutes of fame!

What is your six minutes of fame? Share in the comments.

Give Me Five ... #BarAThon

I am taking part in the Blog-A-Rhythm Bar-a-thon challenge. The theme can be anything that requires grit and endurance, but not necessarily fitness related. And there are daily prompts. 

So my theme is simple, it's a blogging marathon about things to do with me in pictures, starting at one and ending at seven. 

Today's prompt is Give Me Five ...

So here they are five bags from India. 


I love bags especially handloom ones from India. Whenever I visit, I come back with many many of these bags. 

Bags are my indulgence. My daughter on the other hand loves little coin purses and she's got quite a collection of those.

So high five to bags!
