To better times!

A snippet of our holiday snapshots...

Nikah Birthday Part II

This post is LOOONG overdue, but I accidentally stumbled across my own video that I uploaded onto YouTube without knowing or receiving any confirmation that I had done so last year already!


Anyway loved it way to much to let it slip a second time!

We spend the morning of her birthday at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town...  We had a total blast!

Handmade Wholesomeness

My mom, soon-to-be sister in law and I decided to give each other a recipe book for Christmas, it had to contain tried and tested recipes that we've assembled in the past or during the year!

This was our handmade version:

I've decided to make the books from scratch using a Pinterest tutorial.  It came in very handy!
The cover was a hand painted ink and bleach design. On the inside of the cover I decided to podge a interesting piece of fabric!

I've assembled fourty or so recipes, to include with a few extra pages to add your own during the year...

The bookmarks was a sheet of balsawood that I cut in rectangles, and from one cut a heart shape, and drawn a ink heart on the other...

Overall we wanted the book to have a handmade look and feel to it!
