    There is a facebook group for origami society of madras and they conduct regular workshops/demonstrations, etc. It’s an open group – http://www.facebook.com/groups/131873406871307/?ref=ts&fref=ts

    I am going to one of their workshops on this saturday/sunday. I don’t want to learn, but I want to represent origami as a hobby in my blog so that interested people can take up. Good to see that you are already experimenting with this. Origami is a very good hobby and I am sure that with your artistic mind, you can create more such stuff. All the best.

      Thanks for the thought AM πŸ™‚

  9. chattywren · March 20, 2013

      Also, I am unable to open your blog for a few days now. I thought it was a temporary issue but the link opens to a blank page and I get some javascript void thingy below 😦

    • kismitoffeebar · March 20, 2013

    they are lovely….

    • kismitoffeebar · March 21, 2013

      Hello Princess! πŸ™‚

      Welcome here πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  17. Filter Kaapi · March 21, 2013

    Lovely. Do show us the final product. BTW, how do you have so much patience??? I think I saw tutorial for something in Martha Stewart’s website when I was in a want-to-do-DIY phase πŸ˜‰

    I saw some of your old doodles. They were just awesome and you are so artistic. And earlier when I told that I like hoarding on stationery, it is just because I like the feel of new notebooks and writing on the first page. I don’t turn them into beautiful flutter-by or flowers πŸ˜€

    • kismitoffeebar · March 22, 2013

      Thank you Filter Kaapi! πŸ™‚ Oh, I love doing this, actually and hence the patience, I believe!

      You should totally check pinterest then, if you aren’t already – an amazing addiction, it is!

      I love the feel and sometimes do not use my stationery as well, so I know what you mean πŸ˜› Thank you. You are very kind πŸ™‚

  18. vishalbheeroo · March 21, 2013

  19. Amit · March 22, 2013

  20. pixie · March 23, 2013

    wow! They are lovely!! You are so very talented Kismi! πŸ™‚

  21. Sia · March 26, 2013

    Toffee- Lovely colours..And gal- you are an inspiration! So creative!! How do you find time for all these?????

    • kismitoffeebar · March 26, 2013

      Hi Sia! πŸ™‚

      Thank you. You are too kind. πŸ™‚ There is always time. Probably more, if I did not sleep so much on weekends at times πŸ˜›
