About Tokeloshe.

Welcome and thank you for visiting. I have been happily married (sic) for 40 years, have one son, a loving daughter in law and three adorable grandsons. We have been in Canada for 20 years and are originally from South-Africa. My first language is Afrikaans. (Ek kan nog Afrikaans praat, lees en skryf.) I love doing mixed media, scrap-booking, blogging and playing on the computer, I am also interested in photography, genealogy, reading, hiking, camping, arts and crafts.

    Thank you 😉 She was a real lady, it was great to do it.
    You are lucky to have old photos, some people want to scrapbook, but they don’t have many old photos.
    It takes time, but I find it very relaxing.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
