Awaken 2015

07/05/2015 by inkterina | 0 comments

Every year Awaken is the highlight of my year! Us ladies here in the Western Cape are fortunate to experience the Awaken Women’s Conference first every year. This year, once again, it was so beautiful. The theme of this years Awaken was a Beautiful Story. Everyone has a beautiful story to share. Life has it ups and downs it is what shapes us and make us who we are.

Worship is a lifestyle – it is everything you do. “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” John 8:7 (NKJV)
God wants to take our worship beyond a moment. God wants us to live in a place of worship.

It shall be well! “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)

We heard stories of hope and of strength. What an amazing weekend of worship and fellowship.

Some photos from the weekend!

The red tutu

Tonight I will be flying to Paris to run the Paris Marathon on Sunday the 12th of April 2015.

I want to raise money for a creche in Nzamo. As a good friend suggested I am doing this from this Paris Marathon until next year.

“Stable Ministries was founded in the Strand townships by Pastor Morris Van Zyl in 2003 for a group of Zimbabwean Christians who worked in his construction company, Van Zyl Builders. He bought a double stand in Nomzamo, Somerset West on which they eventually, after a lot of resistance from the community committee, built a church in 2010. The women in the church were looking for employment opportunities for themselves and started looking after babies at home. They identified the need for a Christian crèche in the community and Morris started it in the church-building with 6 children. When Morris passed away at the end of 2012 in a tragic work accident, Shofar Somerset West stepped in and took up his legacy. By then the crèche catered for 15 children. Kibwe Kids (sister NGO to Prochorus www.kibwekids.org) bought the property to ensure the continuation of the work started on the property. Prochorus was approached in 2013 and a donor, Secure Data erected two wooden structures (18m2 & 27m2) as permanent homes for the expanding crèche. The crèche caters for up to 25 children between the ages of 4 months and 6 years, on a daily basis with two full-time teachers looking after them from 7am to 6pm. The structures are used for educational purposes when outreaches are done in the community. Gerard Ter Haar is the liaison person for the growing Prochorus Somerset West.”

You can help me support them by donating here

I will be posting photos as I go along. Thank you so much for your support!

The importance of marketing

This morning I was busy working on something & I just remembered a campaign I worked on last year for Channel24.

Channel24 had a new section on their website & they asked us to design something different… I had a view ideas, but in the end they decided to go with the ‘jungle’ effect. Sometimes we as designers feel like we are completely losing it by changing and changing designs & the brief gets changes and so forth. So it was nice when we heard that the campaign did really well!

After the campaign they hit the million mark!

Here are some of the designs:

At the beginning of this year I started a new job. I have left 24.com & I am now working at a company called Wyzetalk.

We had a very big deploy over the weekend. Last week Thursday, Thursday night & Friday morning I spent drawing a LOT of icons as well as a mascot for a company.

I thought I’ll post some icons. Maybe someone else can make use of some icons.

This year has once again run away with me. Hope everyone is have a great year so far!

Thankful for Grace

On Thursday (4 December 2014) I was driving to work on the N2. It was quite early the morning. I was not at work on Wednesday, because I had the so-called 24-hour tummy bug. I left a bit later than the previous mornings, because I was still feeling a bit lousy after the whole tummy bug story & was not going to run the morning before work. Just before the Vanguard drive off-ramp a mini bus taxi came past me in the bus lane. I remember thinking how fast must this guy be going, because I was going just over 120km/h, the next moment I saw a tyre with a piece of axle attached to it rolling down the off-ramp. I slowed down wondering where it was coming from and trying to see if there was an accident on the off-ramp. The next moment everyone in front of me started to break. Then once I got to the other side of the off-ramp I saw the same taxi on three wheels – back left wheel missing, on the right hand side of the N2?! The taxi’s axle must have broken, the wheel with part of the axle shot past me and the Yaris behind me (without us even seeing it) up the off-ramp and missed us! The taxi just carried on on three wheels and came to a stop on the right hand side of the N2, without anyone getting hurt! I am so thankful for God’s grace & protection!
