FireFlight Photography

I met Dana through a friend of mine, Meghan, who is also a photographer.  I was immediately drawn to her, as she is the most fun-loving woman & has a stunning talent.  Dana takes mermaid photos, & they literally take your breath away.  She helps keep you relaxed during her shoots, & produces images that […]

Oodles of Doodles Creations

As I am sure you know by now (if you have been following me for any time), I love to find artists in South Africa.  I have found some really talented men & women, & have some super special artwork displayed in our house because of that. I have had an idea for a new […]

Minimal Creations

I am always on the hunt for South African artists that make me smile, & that I would love to have a piece of their artwork hanging up in my house.  You may remember my blog about Charlie Loves (one of my favourite of all time), & when I saw that Minimal Creations had done […]

In The Jacaranda’s

I feel truly blessed to have a friend who takes the most stunning pictures. Meghan McCabe has shot my entire family, including my animals & every time I lose my breath as I look through the final results. I am certainly no model. I am overweight, I am clumsy, & I end up laughing my […]

Lisa Ternent Art

A friend recently shared a post on Facebook, & this was about the beautiful Lisa Ternent & her amazing art.  In case you don’t know, I collect various family portraits from different artists & I was immediately drawn to Lisa’s talent & unique images!

I reached out to Nicci straight away & asked if […]

Pet Portraits

One of my favourite people in the world, Jane Linley-Thomas, recently posted about a portrait she was getting done of a very special family member – their adorable dog.  Now, if you know anything about me, you would know that my animals are number one in my life.  In fact, I think that we treat […]

Waddles & Radley

Whilst looking for beautiful stationery for my letter writing to my pen pal & just general scrapbooking & journalling, I was thrilled to come across Waddles & Radley.  I placed my order for their Unicorn Waddle Box & waited for this to arrive with great anticipation!  It arrived in a lovely box with my name […]

Chronically Creative

When you have been diagnosed with a chronic illness you can often feel that you are walking a dark & scary road through a forest.  You hear all these strange sounds that you don’t understand & that often freak you out.  You come to many forks in the path & have to decide which one […]

SLDV Illustration

As I’m sure you know by now, I am trying to collect family portraits from different South African artists/illustrators & hope to one day have a whole feature wall with different interpretations of our lives.  We may not be your usual family (what with our children being four-legged & furry), but we are a family […]
