Joburg Workshops 2013

All the Pretty Details
As you might know or recall late last year I hosted my Creative Business Workshops in Joburg for the first time. They went wonderfully and exceeded my expectations. It was also a personal challenge that I undertook as I had not taught the workshops outside of Durban. The biggest thing that weighed on my mind was the fact that I had to drive around Joburg on my own - something I had never done before. I am happy to report that all worked out perfectly and I was proud of myself (and a bit amazed too). Prepare for a photo overload - I have so many details I want to share with you.

The next batch of workshops will take place in Durban, followed by Cape Town. Email me if you wish to be added to the waiting list.


The workshop was attended and photographed by the talented Mariaan of MStudio - a creative I really admire. Heaps of other equally wonderful ladies attended the three workshops and I truly enjoyed getting to know them and learning more about their personal business needs.

I really enjoyed the challenge of arranging the flowers. I usually have a sponsor who takes care of this or my very talented mom - Ellen who handles this aspect, but this time round it was my responsibility.
Goodies galore for all the lovely ladies in attendance.









Concentration faces!


A few incredible sponsors helped to make the workshops exceptional through their sponsored items.

I would like to thank:
Anna Louise Sleepwear: For four sets of beautiful PJ's.
Feral Goods:  Simone supplied the cutest kitty dish which went home with a fellow cat lover.

Typo: Each attendee received a bright folder to keep their ideas together. A few of the decor items also came from Typo.

Love Letter Stationery: One of my favourite suppliers who always takes care of all the workshop pencils which allow attendees to capture their ideas.

Consol: I am so grateful to have this wonderful local business behind me. They kindly supplied Grip & Go drinking bottles, jars for flowers and decor, plus a Solar Jar as a giveaway prize.

Washi Bug: Jaime and team are always ready to help. Thank you for the goodie bag tapes and the MT tape giveaway.

In Good Company: As if their amazing shops are not enough - the wonderful ladies at In Good Co supplied several of the decor items including the small drawers, cake stands and bell jars.

Elephantshoe: I am in love with this business. Thank you so much for the goodie bags and the straws.

M Studio: For capturing the day and the exciting and delightfully wrapped giveaway items.

MillaMae: One lucky attendee walked away with a 2014 diary, new notebook and wrapping goodies - all thanks to these lovely ladies.

Happiness Is: My creative partner and friend is always so happy to help. Each attendee received a calendar and postcard from Fathima.

Other items included where notebooks, name tag stickers and a few other giveaways - such as an issue of Molliemakes and Frankie. Almost everyone was able to win something.
Another thanks to the blogs who featured the workshops:

  3. I'm happy it went well. Driving in Joburg again would really scare me. I've lived in a smaller town long enough now to get really nervous when I have to drive in the city :) I can't wait for the Cape Town workshops.
