  • Love 2 Create 2018

    28th Jun 2018

    In May, I attended the Love 2 Create Convention again. Two days of being spoiled, having fun, learning new crafts, meeting new people and eating great food.  On arrival, we received our goodie bags and name tags. The theme this year was donuts.   Each day started with coffee and delicious homemade rusks.  Because of the water situation ...

  • No more credit card

    11th Jan 2017

    This is a testimony of how faithful God is… On Thursday morning (27 October 2016) I felt hopeless and angry, actually “gatvol” is more accurate. Business wasn’t doing well, there weren’t enough orders coming in to pay the bills, people who ordered from me cancelled their orders, my credit card was maxed out, it was just ...

  • Cake Decorating Folder

    7th Apr 2014

    So, you started collecting your Cake Decorating magazines and received your first folder. And, if you’re like me, you opened it and thought “where’s the instructions?” 🙂 It took me a while to figure out how the magazines are suppose to fit into the folder. At the market one Friday evening, I had two ladies at my ...

  • Oreo owl cupcakes

    10th Mar 2014

    I was asked to make owl cupcakes and to use Oreo biscuits for the eyes. Easy, I thought.  Erm…not. First step is to take the biscuits apart. Hhhmm, not as easy as it looks on tv. They don’t split perfectly with filling on both sides. I tried dividing the filling and spread it on both sides, but ...

  • One year old

    15th Aug 2012

    While I was away, Gina had a birthday, but we decided to celebrate when I got back. We had a birthday party at Ouma’s house. She had a double-layer birthday cake … and pink cupcakes. She was fascinated by the candle, and couldn’t wait to taste the cake. Gareth had to help, otherwise we would’ve had a burnt nose. Tinky ...

  • A new four-legged journey begins

    30th Sep 2011

    Gareth surprised me with a dachshund puppy for my birthday. I got her in September. At home, we introduced her to Tinky, who wasn’t sure what to do with this little thing (she’s never seen a puppy this small). The whole weekend Tinky was curious but also cautious … she would sniff the new puppy while ...

  • No creativity between white walls

    21st Jul 2011

    I can’t be creative when my workroom’s walls are white … that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Colourful walls are what I like and owning our own house means I can paint! Woohoo!! A while ago I took some brochures from a paint shop and saw this kitchen they did in one ...

  • It’s a dog’s life

    17th Dec 2010

    A long time ago I thought it would be nice to get a small dog since I love dogs and always had one or more in my life. Well, I didn’t rush out to buy one immediately, I debated this idea with myself for a few months. It would be nice to have, but I’m ...
