I’m a scrap-booking addict of epic proportions. I live in a little sea-side village off the east coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa. I share my life with my hubby and seven dogs and I count myself very lucky to have them. I have a beautiful daughter who is now 24 and whom I am very proud of and love dearly. I am also godmother to little Isabella, my niece whom I also love to bits.
Whilst scrapping is my number one hobby, I am also an avid reader and I also enjoy taking long walks with my dogs.
I really do enjoy the simple pleasures in life and one of my greatest pleasures have to be a long hot bath at the end of the day and then getting into my bed. I have a thing for crisp, white cotton sheets that smell like sunshine and summer. I’m addicted to coffee and drink far too much of it. I love the smell of the earth after the rain. I love the exuberant way my dogs greet me every morning and the new challenges brought on by every new day. I love the cry of a fish eagle and I am passionate about wildlife and animals in every respect. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Cathy

The Start Of Something New
Hello friends :) Hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas Season and before I say anything else, I'm taking this opportunity to wish all my friends a wonderful 2013!! On that note, the theme over at Once Upon A Sketch for the January challenge is "The Start Of Something New" and once again Nadia provided a beautiful sketch to work with. I was in Mozambique in December and on NewYears Eve we were playing around on the beach and it was quite fascinating to see the tide wash away the silly things we were writing in the sand and then an idea started forming in my head to take a photograph of the tide washing away my 2012 inscription in the sand and for some reason, once I wrote 2013, the water just did not want to reach it so it was quite symbolical for me...the start of something new :) The journaling reads: "A fresh start, a new beginning, so many possibilities!! Hoping that this new year will bring everyone more joy, more music, more laughter, more gratitude, more friends, more surprises and lots of happy memories!!
