As long as I can remember I have been passionate over something. First it was ballet, then Modern dance, Aerobics, teaching mime, crafts like folk art, batiks, and pottery, then I loved to work on the computer, making my own website with graphics, then I started blogging and now I am passionate over scrapbooking.

Some of the Photos

Journal Note: My baby sister was 2 months old, my mother didn’t drive at the time and my father worked shifts.
Klerksdorp was about 7 miles from Stilfontein where we lived. I can’t remember much, but my mother was more nervous than I was. In those days our ribbons were sewn together. In those days our ribbons were sewn together and mom did that, while her hands were shaking.

  1. Some fascinating interests. It is good, I think, to move on from some and to be ready to embrace others. Passion is, usually, something that will not last indefinitely. Of course, there are exceptions. I find, for me, that music is one.


    • I am very fortunate that my family is supportive. 😉

      I have realized that it usually lasts for about 5 years and I never know what will be next.

      I think it’s great to have a passion.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
