Christmas chaos in my house...


Why am I showing you this image...well it sort of shows in what state I have been in the week before Christmas....totally unprepared :) ...last week my two boys were sick, I had a photo-shoot in our home for a lovely Dutch magazine, who invited me to feature in of their next year's isues, quite an honor of course... super happy...then I came down with some sort of virus... high fever and up and about all night (slowly recovering now, high on panadol...)... on top of that I got suddenly incredibly homesick (we've been on the move for years and years...)... longing for a cold and white Christmas in the Netherlands, but most importantly very much missing my mom... so I decided that my Christmas gift to my mom and stepdad would be to invite them over to KL last minute (very last minute actually...) to spend the holidays with us in Malaysia... they arrived yesterday morning (leaving behind the mini-ice age in Europe...)... and nothing is more wonderful of course than spending Christmas with your family and being nursed by your own mom when you're sick.... so I guess this is a longwinded way of saying I am feeling a little bit guilty  for leaving you and my dear B:Kids readers  'un-posted' for almost an entire week... but I guess that is what a personal blog is all about...you never know what the next day will bring ... wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas!

Sponsor Spotlight : The South is Blooming


How wonderful to see a person like Marian Counihan being so devoted to support all the awesome creations coming out of Africa. Marian is a South African living in the Netherlands and she recently opened her online shop selling products from Africa like textiles from FabricNation, by the way a great interview with FabricNation can be find here on Marian's blog.


 The new shop is called The South is Blooming and my favorites are: Keiskamma embroidered cushion cover with angel and the cows; Missibaba printed leather fan earringsShwe Shwe poppi - Buyisile; Missibaba baby bow handbag - metallic....I'm sure many items from South Africa will be added to The South is Blooming in the coming months...perhaps following the blog will keep you updated.
