Hello! I’m Nadine

I am a small-town girl, trying to make sense of the world we are living in.

This blog started out of the need to find something creative to do. I fell in love with the whole process of blogging, even if technology doesn’t always play along and keeps me up at night, I still love it!

I currently work for myself as an architectural technologist. which is a fancy way of saying I can design your house and get it approved by your local municipality in South Africa. Even though I love being an architectural technologist, I do crave being creative in other ways.

This includes decorating my own home, baking (I recently baked my daughter’s first birthday cake, and loved every stressful moment of it!) and flower arranging. I also tried my hand at pottery at one point! As you can see, I love all the traditional homemaking skills!

Meet the loves of my life

Wiehann and I are high school sweethearts. We started dating in 2008 and got married in 2018. Yes, I know, that is a lifetime! And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

He is my biggest supporter and a total rock. He encourages me to follow my heart/passions and has carried me through my lowest low.

Oh, and did I mention that he is the most awesome dad to our little girl, ever?

Wiehann, if you ever read this, you are my hero!

We became parents of the cutest little girl in 2021. How our lives changed for the better. She is our world and we love her to bits.


I am probably sipping coffee, planning the heck out of my day and dreaming of ways I can get from where I am to where I want to be. Whether that is planning my next dream home project on Pinterest or researching a new side hustle to add a possible income stream
