Journal art

A peek into last week..

May 27, 2014

Hi friends.. how was your weekend? Mine was pretty good. Me and my hubby went to mall and watched the latest x-men film Days of our future past. My hubby was so engrossed into the movie while i was busy drooling over Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy :)

Drawing and sketching are my favorite hobby from childhood.. but lately, i didn't get enough time to indulge in it. In order to rectify it, i decided to start an art journal/sketch book. Let's see how far i progress in this..

I also started working on my Sunburst Granny squares which i didn't give much attention to for a long time now.

My current song addiction is One Republic's new song 'Love runs out' . It's a pretty upbeat song that i find myself dancing to the tune many times.

So, what you guys did this weekend? any new projects in mind? Do share your thoughts.. have a great week ahead!
