It is something I only ever heard of. Neither of our families has a diabetic history of any kind… That we know of in anyways. Perhaps you are also the parent of a Type 1 Diabetic kid and don’t always know what to do or what to feel or think or say or anything. Here’s the thing: neither do I! I share with you my experiences and feelings. Please don’t see this as a place to come to for advice, I am all for moral support, nothing else.

Until further notice

Until further notice

An existential crisis. That's what I think I should call it. A big - huge - problem with my entire existence. I am not saying things are over, I'm just saying things are harder than I would have liked it to be. Which things? You might ask. Well, my sense of being in...

Buy the shoes

Buy the shoes

I found this image in my not-so-neat blog folder and can't for the life of me remember why I created it. I know it is a featured image but I have no idea what I was going to write about it! 😀 Anyways, I hope you find a pair of shoes you *need* soon! Many hugs,

Floss

Floss

How do you even blog about flossing? Yeah, I get it, it is important and all of that, but seriously! When I decided to blog about The Sunscreen Song, I had a couple of ideas as to what I learned from it and what I would say about it. But having to write a post about...

Why I joined an agency

Why I joined an agency

It has been seven months since I kind of permanently joined an agency. But why? Why give up seven years of freelance "freedom" for working for someone else? First of all, I did not give up anything. Secondly, well, there is no secondly really. It was definitely not...

The Crew | Fluister

I am pleased to introduce you to Fluister (Whisper). He is the second monster character from the tiny human's crew. I am so excited to get the whole set done for his bedroom! You can see the characters' rough brainstorm here and what the monsters looked like before I...

My GSD-playlist

My GSD-playlist

When we were in hospital with the tiny human there was a nurse who really - more than all the other committed, over-competent ones - knew how to get shit done. We could never remember her name and ended up calling her Nurse GSD (get shit done). As the end of the year...

My sister’s painting

My sister’s painting

My sister got married way back in 2003 and in 2004 she asked me to do a painting for her of one of their wedding photographs. Of course, this was a challenge I was not too keen to accept, but I did anyways. So, years have gone by and I have been finding and losing the...

Mondays are for being creative

Mondays are for being creative

A series of unfortunate melt-downs led to something good. It normally does 🙂 but it takes a while to get there. I had a mini-breakdown and lost my shit *almost* completely one evening after a pointless argument with the hubby. When things settled down and we all...

The Crew | Pokkelpensie

It has been a while since I initially started working on Rudi's friends. I just can't get myself to play on a computer when I have been working on one for an entire day. I managed to digitise them, but have not worked on them for quite some time. On Monday I finally...

Net nog ‘n brief

Net nog ‘n brief

Ek het so hele rukkie terug sommer net gevoel of 'n trok my getref het. Eintlik is mens veronderstel om elke dag 'n brief te skryf dink ek - wanneer jy goed en sleg voel. Al is dit net om op te vrommel in die drom te gooi. Ek het hierdie een vir my suster ge-epos. Dit...
