Thank you to Tandy and Tara for sensing a floundering soul today and jumping in to help by tabling the Agenda so that everyone can see more clearly what is going on on the agenda. I could not get Tara’s earlier table into the blog post but this is the one that Tandy has done.  Much appreciate all the help ladies 🙂

There is some confusion about the workshops. Please note that you are all entitled to attend TWO workshops, one from the earlier session before tea and another from the later session after tea.

There are now THREE photography workshops – the one with Nina and Sam (A2) in the earlier session is booked out. If you had already booked for the one with Nina and Jeanne then please contact me and let me know which one you would prefer to attend as that workshop has been split into two seperate workshops B2(i) and B2(ii) to accommodate everyone who wants to do the photography courses.

And don’t forget to let me know via email or the contact form which other workshop you would like to attend.

WOW! How was the heat in Cape Town today….and so sultry and humid too?? I believe it is storming and raining in some areas now. Nothing this side. Still sweltering although the sky has darkened a lot. I am off to see if I can spot any lightning bolts through the lens of my camera!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.




  1. Hi Colleen, I have filled out the registration form, but I dont see any banking details for payment? Also, on the form I can only select one option for the workshops. I would like to attent the “Social media and building your brand B1” workshop and then the “Food styling and photography B1” (not for dummies). Can you please help me on this one?

    Thanks! Really looking forward to this!

    • Payment request to follow. I have noted which workshops you would like to attend. My apologies that the drop down on the registration form only gives one option. I will get back to you on the Photography workshop as I think Nina’s B2(i) might be already fully booked. Will go and check this morning.
      Did you see that you won a spot prize on twitter for booking? Congratulations!

I appreciate your comment. Please leave one for me....
