Sharing my JOY !

Shared joy is double joy :)

So here I am sharing 
my JOY post with all of you...
I created this JOY zentangle especially for this time
...the Christmas time...

As you all know, by now...that
I just love festivities and cheer...
 and all the traditions
 and stories attached with these festivals...

they just bring that twinkle in my eyes 
and sparkle on my lips...
and I indulge myself even more
 in the celebration of life...

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” 

― Rumi

and of course I do paint 
with all my heart and soul ...
and so ....I derive
 JOY instead of PLEASURE
 with each of my stroke or a tiny little tangle !!

My friend Srishti of Prolific cooking
also shared her joy with this delicious and healthy whole wheat choco orange muffin recipe...
and since healthy cooking is my passion too...I had to try this one :)

Believe me they actually are divine :)

Sharing my JOY ...with PPF

and wishing all of you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!
