I wanted to do something special for hubby’s birthday, a medieval photo shoot came to mind as we both fans of these kind of movies. Dressing up in costumes, playing with swords and yes they are real was an absolute blast.
More of our photo shoot coming soon… Credit to Melissa for all the lovely photos
I needed a place to hang my hats, so I decided to make something. I build a solid wood frame and attached a backing to it. Next I painted the frame to my colour preference and painted the inner with black board paint. I wanted an oval mirrors 100x150mm, but instead I opted for a 150mm radius mirror which cost me a R100 less than the oval one.
I was not happy with the workmanship on the mirror, next time I will think twice before using the same guys to cut and polish my glass and mirrors, but I am pleased with the outcome of this project.
Your memory will forever live on in the hearts of Africans and all people across the world. Your sacrifice and courage will never be forgotten, you leave behind a legacy larger than life. I am proud to be a fellow South African and it has been an honour and privilege to have you as a Tata, thank you for everything that you have done for us. We should continue to strive toward equality for all, fight against oppression and remember the lessons of forgiveness; compassion; reconciliation and peace you have taught our nation and the world. In solidarity Tata Madiba we salute You, May your soul Rest in Peace.
On Saturday I hosted my sister’s baby shower
It was wonderful to spend time with the family
The expecting mommy
Ally checking on her aunt’s Baby

Children are a blessing from God.There is nothing like children running around and laughing to make one feel fortunate. I continue to count my riches by the family and good friends that I have in my life. :)
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to update my blog and facebook page as all of my attention is focused on expanding Marra Interiors and other ventures associated with the Gails Diy Creations. The foundation stages are always the hardest, so much planning… For now I’m putting in the work, as I know it will all be worth it soon enough. I am very excited and can not wait to share it all with you.

•Desejo a todos um abençoado fim de semana e segura
•Les deseo a todos un fin de semana bendito y seguro

A Piñata at a kiddies birthday party can be a funky decoration and a cool activity at the end of the party. The Piñata can be filled with all sorts of candy, have a party bag ready for each child, and when the piñata breaks the children can fill their bag with sweets to take home as a treat YUM!!!
The Donkey piñata was made from a cereal box; some box tape, other clear sticky tape; different colours of crepe paper; an empty toiler roll halved for the donkeys ears; red felt fabric used as the tongue with straw as an optional and a few stickers here and there. Filled with your choice of sweets; chocolates or lollipops.
Sorry that I didn’t include more info on how I made this, I was a little pressed for time. The next time I make a Piñata I will include step by step pictures with instructions on how to make it.
