Lindy's beautiful necklace and a whole bunch of rambling..

A few weeks back , one of the art blogs I follow, Serpent Mandalas had hosted a giveaway. Lindy, the artist who owns the blog creates beautiful mandalas and paintings , all striking and beautiful. I was surprised when I got to know that despite not winning the giveaway, Lindy was sending me a beautiful necklace with her art.. just because I took part in the giveaway! How sweet and generous is that ? Let me show you the goodies Lindy sent  my way... 

No, thanks, Lindy !
 Now for a close-up of the necklace..

How cute is this pendant? !

That's the print on the necklace...

Lindy very sweetly let us choose the print we wanted, and I chose the one above(yeah , it has a baby and all.I am sentimental and mushy like that ;-)).

Gorgeous ,no? To drool over her wonderful prints, necklaces and paintings, do visit her Etsy shop.

Umm...I finally received my author copies of Seven Across..I had a few intense moments holding the copies. I didn't leap around or jump in joy, like I thought I would, but just stared at the copies! Sometimes, when you've been waiting for something for a really long time, you just don't feel anything but a burst of strong inexplicable emotion.. and nothing else.Its always been that way for me ! Yeah, the first baby is here :-)

Edited to add: The book is now available on Flipkart and Indiaplaza. Indiaplaza is offering the book at a 35% discount off MRP! You can find the links on the sidebar..

Hot off the press..:-)

On another note, I am technically "at term" , meaning the baby can come anytime now (I haven't  completed 40 weeks yet, which is full-term). Strange uncomfortable things have been happening to the body for the last 1 week, and needless to say I am on tenterhooks.The last month of pregnancy definitely kicks one's ass, what with all the assorted pains and aches that it heralds. But hey,I am not complaining! I am more excited about the lil' one's arrival than worried about labour pains and other child-birth related things...The lady at the prenatal class I go to gave me this cute little ball (to use for stress-relief during labour) and a sweet card. 

What's on the ball?..

Yeah.. it says BREATHE!

"Breathing right" is the key to managing labour well, according to a lot of people. Hopefully, I'll use the techniques I learnt in the class, and not SCCCCRRREEEAMMMMM at  people around me when in pain. My biggest fear  is that I'll make an undignified mess of myself by moaning and groaning way too much ;-)

Anyway , have a super week ahead and if I disappear without a trace for a few weeks, you know the reason for that..

Bu-bye !

I've been a lurker for long; but jusst had to say two things:
1. Congratulations on your baby# 1! :)
2. Wish you all the very best for labour. It is an exciting time. And oh! Don't you worry about shouting at people around you. Am sure they would've seen far worse! My prayers are with you for a safe labour and the arrival of your bonny baby.

All the best for the next phase of your life.

We hope to hear all about your labour here.

For the record, there is nothing undignified about moaning and groaning..some of us made the doctor buy ear plugs and are proud of it.

Suko said...

I love your pendant! It is adorable. Best of luck with your book, and with the new baby!

Bhargavi said...

D.. Thanks for de-lurking and sending me your lovely wishes..Maybe they've seen worse, but I don't want to be another anecdote to them when they think of labour-zillas! Wish you had "de-annonymysed" yourself too ;-)

L.. Ha ha ! A doctor who ditches the patient and trudges of to the Yesudas concert deserves to buy his own ear plugs ;-) sure thing, will definitely write about it..And thanks :)

Bhargavi said...
