2008 was a year full of openings but also full of difficulty. It's summer was like summer holidays- spent on the beach and rock pools in Falsebay- which gave me the inspiration for my Waterplay collection. It reminded me of my summers as a child playing and discovering, which I did whole hearted. When Autumn came we moved into the city again- up in Tamboerskloof on the flanks of Signalhill overlooking the ocean and the city. Summer also had made me discover photography- and autumns flowers hooked me on it..
2008 was the year where I got on my birthday a message that I got added to ravelry. Which was really exciting and so cool. The gift kept on giving because through it I found flickr and later on started blogging. So 2008 was the year I started blogging, which has been a incredible journey an inspiration and a huge opening for me.
2008 was also the year that i was studioless. its been forever that i had no personal space to be creative- since i can think i had it. it has been a real test for me but also made me be much more ingenious and gave me a huge insensitive to still go on- and hey if i can do it without space, i will be sure to make it happen with one, isn't it?
2008 was the year in which I moved the first time in my life into an inner City Apartment, though I was initially worried- I am a country pumpkin and need to be in the nature- I truly love it.
2008 is the year that showed me my love for South Africa and how much I am part of it.
2008 was also the year in which I didn't manage to travel outside it's border, am so feeling like a fish on land.
2008 is the year that has gone... 2009 is here and will hopefully bring lots of good things and many good weekly reviews.
Have a nice Weekend, x0
