Hi there! I am an South African expat, living in the lovely Kent countryside in the UK.
I love everything meaningful and beautiful - so I try my hand at photography, painting, embroidery, needlework, cooking and writing.

My inspiration for all of this: the people that I love,
and the love that God has for me.

Always more ideas and inspiration than being able to do!

I oftern agree with this great artist:

Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.
