    Heavenly Apple Pie

    I know that many people are not fans of baked fruit desserts, but believe me when I say that this will change your life!  This is a dessert that has been around in our family since I can remember, & it is my go to recipe that I use whenever I am making something for an event. My family also loves this, & a memory that we all still chuckle about is my grandpa asking my mum to make her “um, delicious pudding.  What’s it called again?  Praise the Lord Pudding?”.  He knew the name had something to do with heaven/God & this is what his mind came up with!…

    Mini Me

    Do you remember receiving Lego as a child & coming up with all sorts of exciting creations, as well as bringing your dreams to life?  I LOVE building Lego, & have always had a special interest in the different Lego people & how their individuality is displayed. I was so thrilled to discover Mini Me & see all the different options they have in order to create your very own unique figurine.  What a special gift & you can really go crazy with ideas & additions!  You choose everything from hair, face, accessories & animals; to torsos, legs & headgear.  You then choose if you want this on a plexiglass…

    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 on it & ribbon tied around it.  From the first impression you could immediately see the level of care & love that goes into putting these together & that the owners truly care about what they are doing. I opened the box & saw a whole pile of gorgeous goodies lying there just waiting to…

    MILLAMAE

    Can you believe that 2019 is almost upon us?  When I realised that we are now in OCTOBER my mind went to all sorts of places – it is time to start thinking of Christmas (am I allowed to put up my tree yet?); it is our sixth wedding anniversary this month; we are moving offices & home at the end of this month; & planning for 2019 needs to begin.  Can you tell I’m Type A personality yet? I knew I wanted to find a diary to keep track of all my meetings, plans & events – I have millions of notebooks & love finding something fun & pretty…

    Projectarian

    About 3 years ago I picked up a crochet hook for the first time.  A lot of my friends were having babies so I wanted to make something special for them, but I also wanted a hobby.  I truly felt like I didn’t have anything that made me smile from my soul & that I wanted to spend my time doing (besides reading).  I chatted to a friend where I worked & she showed me the basics, as well as spending many mornings discussing our next plans & what we would work on next. I realised that I had an undiscovered passion for working with my hands, & I loved…

    Sunkissed Handmade

    As you can tell my the title of my blog, I ADORE flowercrowns!  I have a few from chain stores, but my favourite are definitely handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces of art that I will treasure forever. Recently I got in touch with Samantha from Sunkissed Handmade as she is SUPER talented, & her social media pics completely blow me away every time.  She makes truly unique headpieces ranging from flowercrowns to mermaid crowns & beyond.  She can even put together DIY kits so you can personalise your crown exactly the way you want one. With festival themes being the “in” thing right now, you may want to place your order with…

    Addi is the BOMB!

    Princess Addison is such a special little girl.  When I first met her, I was completely enamored by her friendliness, zest for life & her complete love for animals.  We bonded whilst watching The Trolls & she chatted away to me about all sorts, & getting to see life through a child’s eyes truly reminded me about how beautiful it is! Recently I saw on FB that she has started her very own business called Bath Bombs by Addison, where she is making the most stunning bath bombs with her mum & selling these – with some of the money being donated to FORA (Friends Of Rescued Animals).  What a…

    Lulupie

    Scrolling through Facebook one day I cam across a page called Lulupie.  They do paperless patterns which means that they print the actual pattern on the fabric so all you have to do is cut out the design & sew it together.  Plus they can even make your own fabric with a design of your choice, so pretty much you can get exactly what you want, & it can be a one-of-a-kind clothing. I contacted the page & gave them an idea that I have for Rare Diseases SA, & was absolutely blown away by her love as well as her excitement for this project.  I think you can tell…

    Another type of treatment

    Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton. Don’t you find that at times you look around your house & you just really need a change?  Whether it be new cushions on your couches; changing the photos in your frames; or just rearranging the furniture – all of these can make the world of difference to how a room looks & how you feel about it. Husband & I had a tough week.  Work-wise, emotionally, health-wise & just stressful.  So we decided to have our own form of “therapy” by changing a few things in our house.  We didn’t put the TV on,…
