At this current moment, I'm trying desperately to learn a new programme. I remember when I was first trying to learn Photoshop, it was so full of effort but every thing I learnt proved so useful and pat-on-the-backish. Now every time I learn something, I smack myself on the knuckles for not doing it quicker and for it not looking as good as I want it to. Anu, my housemate, and me were talking about it and we asked, is it age that makes us want perfection a lot more, hence making learning a lot more difficult? I don't believe it's patience because by-gum, I had the patience of an ant when I was younger and this is probably the most patient I've ever been. That's not saying much about that virtue and me! What about priority? Maybe if this skill-requirement was indispensable for further scaling, it would have been easier. That may be it really. Necessity being the mother of real learning.

We were still thinking about what to name the collection when the samples of collars, harnesses and leashes arrived. And the first thought that came to mind was how adorable the pink one would have looked on Cookie-Brown. She was such a pink-wearer, that girl. Rashi lost her doggie Leo a bit back too and together 'the Cookie & Leo collection' just sounded right.
CLICK HERE to see the collection.

1) Illustrating one big project
2) Pitching (more like figuring out a financial solution) for one big project.
3) Have 3 sketchbooks to ink beside me
4) Have 6 images to colour this morning.
5) Have a meeting at 12.
6) Have one book on Kindle to finish that is fabulous (Drinking:a Love story)
7) One book that's taken me more than a few months to finish, though is even more fabulous (Happiness Hypothesis)
8) Invoices to draft.
9) One online course in Child Psychology in progress
10) One online course on learning to use the DSLR in progress (refresher. and my phone camera conked)
11) Need to meet the printer.
12) 10pm double-date-movie and dinner night. (yay!)
12) Need to groom, desperately. (haha <- nervous laugh)
13) Have to stop by the post office.
14) Fix phone.
That's it for today, I think. Atleast I don't have to make dinner.
(I make lists of things that are worrying me so I can rid of them in my brain once I have it on paper. It works like a charm!)

OK enough of me raving on about the product. (It really blew me away!)
If you'd like, you can pick one up here.
How to easily-peasily stick the skin: (Officially a hand-actor now!)
Random things I stickered up, before my phone camera conked (sigh!):
Hoorah for stickers!
PS: Also cut circles from the bits of the skin leftover after stickering your laptop and you can use them as seals for letters. So darn cute!

Anyway, she's always stayed away from dogs, not out of fear though and I was all prepped to tempt Charlie away from her if and when he decided to get overtly excited with the new member of our household. And lo and behold, in a day, she went to the store and got herself some gloves because she just HAD to pet this little spoilt brat. Charlie was the first dog that she had ever petted in her entire life! Of course, Charlie sprawled across the floor, expectantly, with his usual air of knowledge that no one passes him without a scratch on his belly or pet on the forehead.
Anu was delighted and stunned to see her mom, not only stroking this little very spoilt boy but also her referring to him as 'kanna' (an affectionate , if I'm not mistaken, Tamilian word for 'dear') and her younger brother's pet name. He officially knows how to sit in Tamil now.
Charlie is now trying to convert her into a snuggling partner. That may take a while though.
