2017 – A year of lightness

So it’s the end of January already and I won’t lie to you, 2017 started off a little heavy. I came back from a blissful 3 week holiday and digital detox, but fell straight into a whirlpool of anxiety the moment I got back. 2017 is scaring the hell out of me right now, and here’s the reason why … change. a This year is going to be a year full of big changes for both my business and myself. I can’t tell you too much about it just yet, but I can tell you that it’s making me feel pretty emotional....

The 6th Pink Party felt like coming home!

One year, six workshops, and I couldn't have asked for a better showstopper than this. The last 13 months has been an incredible adventure, with 108 (yes) women joining me for this special experience. I'm finished, empty and I've given it my all, but my heart is full in knowing that all of these women left with something valuable. I made new friends, connected creatives, and truly feel like this has become a community of professional women that are going places! a Three of these six workshops were held over the last two months, and to be honest, it was exhausting. I...

Dehan and Roelandi White Kite Studio cover

Dehan and Roelandi’s chic green bushvelt wedding

So I'm obsessed with this new venue in the northern part of South Africa! Bordeaux Game Farm was the perfect backdrop for Dehan and Roelandi's celebration of love, plus their predominantly green colour palette has me weak in the knees. I've been working with Dehan over the last year on so many shoots, and it was my way of saying thank you by making them some wedding stationery pretties! We went for a super simple, single colour design with delicate leaves and textured paper. Please do yourself a favour and have a look at the full wedding on talented Nadine Aucamp's website....

Zesty Kitchen Tea Favour Tags

June and July are the gloomiest, coldest months in South Africa, so here’s a bright homemade idea to zest up a winter bridal shower! I love seasonal citrus and this is a really great favour idea that is cheap and easy to make, perfect for a winter celebration. A citrus theme can also do for fabulous décor and food, combined with sharp geometric shapes and gorgeous winter flowers like yellow, pink and white tulips. a I used the yellow from lemons and the pink from grapefruits as the colour palette to create these favour tags. It’s as simple as putting a lemon, some...

The second Pink Party Workshop at Landtscap

Pink is a colour that combines red and white. Red represents the need for action and success, while white offers insight, clarity and a "fresh start". Overall Pink is a positive colour that stands for energy, hope and kindness, and puts all of us in touch with the nurturing side of ourselves, through either the need to receive or the need to give. a As a side-venture to White Kite Studio stationery design and branding, I've launched a revolutionary new workshop for creative entrepreneurs on branding, online marketing and community building. The first ever Pink Party took place in October 2015, and...
