Hey!  Welcome to my blog!  Just a little bit about me & what I’m doing here –

I live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of sunny, friendly South Africa with my best friend/partner & 2 sweet, gorgeous dogs, next-door to his parents & across the road from one of our closest friends.  We share a passion for art, poi/firedancing & conscious, loving living.  Yes, I’m smiling now 🙂 because I am one very lucky/blessed (there really should be a better word for that) woman.

My primary purpose is my soul’s purpose (& I don’t even really know what that means but it’s working for me ;-)):  to learn to live better, to experience life with greater joy, lightness of spirit, to love more generously & pursue my interests with passion & belief.  I have learned & continue to learn so much –  I am truly grateful.

So I decided to start a blog to have a space to write about & post images of the beautiful things I make:  oil paintings, artworks & designs as well as handcrafted objects like my “Stuffed With Love” plushies, amongst other things.

I’ll be writing about & posting photos & videos of our poi/firedancing practices & performances as well as our school,  Blaze Poi/Firedancing School, along with illustrated lessons, tips, tricks & photos & videos of our students.

It is also a space for me to share some of the many beautiful images & interesting & inspiring links I find on the net & whatever else I happen to think of at the time. 🙂

All design work on this blog is my own.

I hope you enjoy!

Much love, Vanessa
