Hello beautiful people,
Long time no blog 🙂 It’s been quite an eventful year for me so far. I’ve been so busy with other aspects of my life that I’ve not had the headspace to start blogging as consistently as I should. But soon all that will change..can I get an AMEN!
So while I was away from the blog, if you follow me on social media you would have seen my post on creating paper decorations for Candy Cart NG. My props were used to decorate her candy cart for the 76th Birthday Party of Chief Rasaq Okoya, and for those of you that don’t know who that is he’s a billionaire Nigerian Industrialist (Wikipedia’s words). Well it so happens that post was picked up by Funke Osae-Brown the Editor of The Luxury Reporter and voila here’s yours truly featured in the pages of the February Edition of the online magazine!
Hello and compliments of the season!

If you were following my progress on my year long 2015 Monthly Calendar Project you would have seen all the behind the scenes pictures and thought processes of how I created all 12 pieces of paper-cut artworks that feature on each month of the calendar. I got quite a few requests for 2016 Calendars and since we’re in the season on giving, you could say I’m in quite a generous mood!
Welcome to December! If you’re like me you’re probably thinking “Wow! this year went by really quick!” But then again, I think I have that thought every December! LOL!
So as you all know this will be the last instalment of the 2015 Monthly Calendar Project! OMG!! I have mixed feelings about this.
On one hand I’m happy I was able to set myself a goal and keep to it consistently through some of the most difficult periods of my life like family drama, work pressure and battling health issues (Oh yeah, apart from overcoming and having a successful treatment for a long drawn out health problem earlier this year, I also recently had my 1st and hopefully last severe allergic reaction! Might blog on that later).
Hello and welcome to November!
Where has the year gone?! It seems just like yesterday I that I made my first paper cut in this series. Yet so much has happened this year too. I can only be thankful for how the year has gone, both the good and the bad because it all works together to shape me as a person.
So the quote for this month is
Go the extra mile. It’s never crowded
I think the quote speaks for itself. Why settle for average and blend in when with just a little extra effort you can be exceptional and stand out?
Let me start by saying:
Happy Independence Day Nigeria!
For those of you who are not in the know, October 1st is my country’s Independence Day and we’re 55 years young!
October is also my birthday month *whoop! whoop! It’s less than a week away and no I’ve not made any plans *sigh
So I’ll make this brief.
The quote as you may have already guessed is;
You must do the thing you think you cannot do
It was said by Eleanor Roosevelt and I think it is quite apt because it speaks to where we are as a country and also to me personally.
