  • No more credit card

    11th January 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 April 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 March 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 August 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 September 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 July 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 ...

  • Feedback – Easter Eggs for Enozipho

    16th May 2011

    People responded well to our Easter Egg project and we got 200 eggs in total. We bought all the eggs and then the fun started … painting 200 white Easter eggs and packaging them. ‘Coz my workroom is not in the lounge anymore, I decided that I don’t want to sit on my own painting ...

  • It’s a dog’s life

    17th December 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 ...

  • Oh my … he’s going to kiss me

    19th November 2010

    This is my and Gareth’s story … In 2003, I met a presenter of a community radio show at a Christmas function. I started listening and eventually heard Gareth’s voice on air, because he would occasionally visit him in the studio, but I was oblivious to what God was busy doing. One year (I can’t remember ...

  • It belongs to my man

    4th October 2010

    … a stunning voice, that is. 🙂 Before I met Gareth, I didn’t know what a voice over was all about, but I soon found out. I went with to a voice over he did … he went into the recording booth and I sat on the other side of the glass with the technical guys. They ...
