“Indigenous African cooking, traditional Afrikaner cuisine, and the Portuguese among others have contributed to the deliciously diverse flavours of South Africa’s “rainbow cuisine.”Bredies,biltong,boerewors,mealiepap, umngqusho,mashonzha, and peri-periprawns feature strongly on the menu in South African homes.” Ejozi.co.za

I buy eyelets at Tandy leather factory in Calgary, the quality is better and the price more reasonable than at the craft-stores.

I printed the title in Microsoft Word, by inserting a text box the same size as needed, I then chose a bold font such as Snap ITC, choosing the font size to fill the box, I experimented with the text effects, when I was satisfied I printed the title, then traced the letters using my light-box and colored them in.
