The Happiness is... 2015 Calendar

Happiness is... 2015 Calendar - 12 x hand lettered quotes and watercolour patterns
The Happiness is... 2015 Calendar is finally here! 
If you're a Lucky Packet subscriber or have been following me on Instagram you would have seen snippets of this project in the making for a while now. As a freelancer, my schedule and workload tends to fluctuate a lot, and it so happened that around the time I had planned to get this off the ground I had a large influx of work that pretty much took over everything (and is still ongoing). This meant that my plans for the calendar got pushed out somewhat, but I kept going slowly whenever I could and finally got it done, luckily before 2015!  And still (just barely) in time for Christmas gift orders! So I'm glad to announce it's finally available for sale :)

The Happiness is... 2015 Calendar is an A3 full year calendar with a carefully selected hand-lettered quote for each month, and 12 original watercolour pattern backgrounds. It has a dual function so that you can cut out and keep the pattern and quote areas to reuse, as post cards or for scrapbooking or wall art, or any way you please. 

Here's some of what you can expect...

Shipping for these is only available within South Africa, but I've made a printable version as well for those out of SA! These are slightly different as they can't be A3, so they work as an A4 calendar + an A4 quote page for each month. If you order the printed A3 calendar, you get the printable version free as an added extra!

Verve Café, Umhlanga

Happiness is... Verve Café, Umhlanga, Durban

Verve Café is an awesome new coffee shop that opened recently in Umhlanga, and it has instantly become my favourite place north of the river. My judgement of a coffee shop is not usually based on just coffee, but on the location, the general vibe, decor, staff friendliness, and food/cake/coffee selection. They've done a fantastic job with the decor here, the most striking and defining factor of course being the very large art piece taking up a whole wall as you enter. The whole place has a comfortable, old feeling with lovely old furniture and items of interest all over. Those couches are just magnificent.

Verve is at 59 Meridian Drive in a little office park called Outlet Park (first shop on the left when you turn in). It's just down the road from Duke & Duchess, my other favourite Umhlanga spot. They're open Monday to Friday 7:30am to 4:00pm.

The Durban Good Food & Wine Show 2014


Happiness is... Durban Good Food & Wine Show 2014
I experienced the Good Food & Wine Show for the first time this year, so thought I'd share a taste of what it was like (haha, pun totally intended). It was at first pretty overwhelming - there were so many stalls and so much to see, lots of little demo areas all over with interesting people to watch, as well as the celebrity chef theatres which were at an extra fee. I tried to take lots of pics, but unfortunately they aren't the best as it was really busy and it's pretty difficult to get good pics in such a crowd without getting all up in people's faces. But I think it gives you a good idea of the general vibe...
