I know that many of you are celebrating today so for those who are, Fysh and I would like to wish you a very merry and blessed Christmas day filled with so much love and laughter you snort beer out your nose ;)  I spent the past 12 months crocheting Fysh a StampyLongnose pixel blanket in secret. For those who don't know, Stampy is a guy who plays and narrates minecraft on YouTube. With it I made him a messenger bag with a pocket for his tablet because he's always...

Fuck but 2016 has been a rough year and at one point I even told it to go deep throat a cactus but today changed up my thinking a little. Maybe cause today was a good day. My morning started designing a quick poster, handing over one of my sewn dolls and chatting with the director of the charity in Australia that I am going to be the 'in house' designer for next year. It's called Support The Girls Australia (I'll tell you all about it in its own...

So in 2017 I'll be attempting my very first 365 project and to help make it happen I was going to do a crowd funding thing but then thought perhaps Patreon was a better idea because long term I'd also like to exhibit the pieces from the project and also finish the book that is currently penned on napkins! What is Patreon : Basically Patrons help artists be appreciated and actually allow them to be the artist they are. I stuck at really explaining though so here's a video...

So recently Fysh and I went for an evening of absolute FUN at Canal Walk. If you're a local I'm sure you already know that every December for the past 10+ years they host a ice adventure over December. Bringing some snow fun to our summer holiday season. If you're new...

We needed to come up with a unisex gift under R100 for a christmas gift swap thing. I was going to crochet slippers out of odds and ends but then I was told it's numbered and we won't know who's getting our gift so shit that's not going to work cause you can't really make one size fits all slippers when there's men and women involved. So shit...

So mid last month I got bold and offered myself up to Abigailk.co.za for her #CTconfidence initiative. She did it last year and you can watch the video here. I really loved it and you'll see a bunch of familiar faces in it. So when she said she was looking for 10 girls to do it again this year I thought hey why not right? Well she decided to change things up?! And this year instead we were given 3 questions to mull over and answer. Oh fuck it was so awkward. Abigail is...

Not sponsored but we were sent the game.  Mzansi means South in isiXhosa but we use it as a slang term to mean South Africa.  And being a South African pretty much means you're genetically programed to be fiercely proud of it. Although sometimes it takes living elsewhere for a while to make you realise just how much of a saffa you really are. We're all about the braai's and flamingos, the watermelon for xmas, sandboarding, saying "ja nee, dis lekker" and understanding that "just now or the other day" have wholly...

I have read every single one of Dan Brown's books and absolutely loved them though as of yet I haven't read Inferno for some odd reason but I am definitely going to read it ASAP. In case you didn't know, Inferno has been made into a movie! Robert Langdon is BACK! and to celebrate the release of INFERNO, Penguin Random House SA and Sony Movies SA are giving us the chance to win a set of double tickets to the exclusive Inferno movie screening on Wednesday!!!

When you think the holiday season we automatically think cocoa right? But if you're like me and you live in the southern hemisphere then you know that there aren't too many days that are cold enough to really enjoy hot cocoa and mini marshmallows and we don't get pumpkin spice everything here either (which I'm really sad about) and Glühwein is better replaced with ice cold sangria. But we still want to cinnamon, rum and apple and make it as festive as possible so here are 5 of my favourite...
