Guest series 2012: I asked fellow bloggers, makers and creators to write on their creativity and focus their essay on one of four topics: creativity and health, creativity and business, creativity and parenting or creativity and process. I am very excited to have a wonderful lot of fellow creative folk guest posting here at whipup.net over the next couple of months. Please welcome…
Khadija lives in Pakistan and is interested in recycling, DIY and fashion based crafts. You can find her online at Creative Mind.
I am Khadija from Creative Mind and I am living in the capital city of Pakistan. I’m a university student and have been blogging for two years. I like sharing my ideas about DIY, Crafts and recycling. I have studied textile design and have learned about sketching, tie and dye, batik, weaving, painting and printing.
I love recycling and green projects. Whenever my mother is going to throw any broken or used material from crockery, I save it for doing any unexpected experiment, you can see some of my crockery recycling ideas here, here, here and here.
My creative process is not limited, I’m not usually making things in any specific field, I can try creating anything from any field of art. Usually ideas entered in my mind during attending classes in university, specially when I’ve to hear a long period class of a boring professor with a rough subject like statistics, economics or research studies but maybe these subjects are not boring to some of the other students!
Henna designs are one of my favorite ways of doodling, i’m not making these on hands only, I apply henna herb on paper (as paper lanterns) and Styrofoam and whenever I have a notepad I start doodling and making designs, (a note pad is not necessary sometimes, I can make my text books dirty with these…not good but it’s true). Near me, my journals are not usually in good condition, I behave roughly while working and you can see some of my henna design sketches above. By the grace of God my readers are die hard fan of my designs, that’s why my blog has been opened by about half million people during a period of two years. Thank you all.
