​Slowly but steadily things are being unpacked and life is getting back to normalcy at the new house. A busy Saturday but managed to carve out some time to do owl art.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 50 | Halfway There.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 50 | Halfway There. | The 100 Day Project

50 DAYS! That is a long time people. When it comes to pursuing interests/hobbies, consistency and persistence are not something people talk about in Siriland. But, what started as a way to get a quick 15-minute break from a mundane day, now 50 days later, the day feels empty without it. TH still finds it amusing that I start to doodle even if I have just 5 mins to leave the house, to catch the train for work. Because doodling is how I learnt to shut down the constant chitter-chatter of my hyper-active brain, to relax and let my imagination fly. I have so much to learn and I am sure will do in due course of time, one stroke at a time.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 47 | Zentangle Tile

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 47 | Zentangle Tile | The 100 Day Project 2017

Aren't Fridays supposed to be fun and kinda relaxed? After an excruciatingly exhausting day at work yesterday, I desperately needed some me-time to wind down and to calm my nerves a bit. What better way than to quickly look up a few tangle patterns and finish a Zentangle tile? The beauty of the whole process is there is no expected outcome other than a strange creative aimlessness of putting the pen to paper and staying open to whatever emerges. Late night tangling (especially when you don't have to work the next day) seems like a keeper idea for a good night's sleep!

Tangle patterns primarily used are: Agni, Tira and Knightsbridge. Sending this as an entry to It's String A Thing # 198 by Adele.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 45 | Transformation

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 45 | Transformation | The 100 Day Project

Transformation doesn't ask that you stop being you. It demands that you find a way back to the authenticity and strength that's already inside of you. You only have to bloom. - Cheryl Strayed.

Exactly what I wanted to hear. Thanks for posting these beautiful words @haathitime

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 42 | Monday Blues!

Hardly slept last night, tossing & turning and now Monday blues have kicked in stronger than ever where TH had to literally drag me out of warm comfort of the bed. Here's hoping we all have a good (sane) week ahead. Doodle inspired from @blackberryjelly.

#100DaysOfDoodles | Day 41 | How to Draw a Rose

* Because it has been almost two weeks since I stopped #100DaysOfDoodles
* Because I am terribly missing spending a few minutes of daily doodling.
* Because I don't have to be too rigid about daily postings and share whenever I can
* Because enjoying the process is more important than reaching an end goal
* Because today I had this sudden urge to learn how to draw a proper Rose.
