Chalk the ideas..

with age, everybody seem to forget things. How many of you write down the ” TO DO LIST”, and get pleasure striking the done things. Oh well, how about a house which provides a wall space for it. Imagine a big black wall for you to write on in every room. the wall is either to write down the things to do, or can become a creative platform for the kids to show their imagination. How about the wall displaying the important dates of life or a cute proposal or love note from hubby. I am getting really excited thinking about things that can be done on a clean blank wall.

its always in our hands to chose the colour. If we can carry anything elagant, even black on nails can look fab.

This paint is designed for blackboards or green-boards (as seen in classrooms). It can also be used on surfaces that are to function as a board, ie written on with chalk.

coming to bedroom, here are sample pictures. either you do it everyday, change according to the mood. write captions, or draw smething to complete or complement the bed. So, i would write a beautiful qoute everyday on the wall, read it, and relive it.

I welcome you here! My blog is primarily a blank paper with chronicles of my everyday thoughts and happenings around me spilling like colours. It has various hues, bright, cheerful at times dark episodes of my life. I like to speak a lot and tell stories, but rarely find patient listeners. So, here I am venting out, everything crossing my mind. it is also a record book of my little Barbie’s antics and growth. It is just not about the baby ,but also helps me to keep track of fights and special moments with husband, in-laws and friends. I am an Architect by profession working for an Govt. away from husband because of job location. I love writing, painting, reading and cooking (occasionally).I like roaming around and window shopping. But, now unable to move even an inch outside, because of my daughter. I am originally from Andhrapradesh and have lived in Tamilnadu for 25 years and now back in Andhra. So you will find mix of words from both the languages and me trying to settle down in this new place. Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear from you. Please email me at
