Love 2 Create 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… Read More »

No more credit card

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.

The whole weekend Tinky was curious but also cautious … she would sniff the new puppy… Read More »

It’s a dog’s life

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… Read More »
