Hi! I’m Zoe
I really believe I can be someone who changes the world in a positive way, and that everyone else can be too.
I'm a student, hippie, older sister, bicycle rider, amateur website designer, loom knitter, novice seamstress, and a little bit eccentric.
I love public speaking, photography, writing and cooking. I'm fluent in English, Sarcasm and Bullshit.

I laugh every time I see that word. NaNoWriMo. It sort of sounds like Nanna Rhino. Anyway, I’m just letting you know I’m participating in National Novel Writing Month. But I don’t plan on writing a novel. At least, I don’t think I do. But who knows what will happen? Maybe I will, just for fun. What I do plan on writing is assignments, blog posts and lots of cover letters. All things that will in some way or another be “published”. Continue reading
To get back into the swing of blogging, I’ve set myself a 30 minute, 30 day challenge. I am going to spend 30 uninterrupted minutes for the next 30 days writing. It won’t all be published, but it will get me in the habit of writing again. Continue reading
Artists’ hands are colourful, messy, beautiful They have blisters, calluses and paper-cuts They are cold in the winter from working in the air, And hot in the summer from working too hard. Artists’ hands have stories to tell Of adventure, … Continue reading
I am loving making this recipe book! And I wanted to share it a bit more with you, so I’m giving away another free downloadable recipe. This one is not only an old favourite of mine, but it’s also a very popular one. The children I live with love it, my parents love it, and even my friends over at Mission Watoto love it! I hope you love it too… Continue reading
I’m working really hard, but it hardly feels like working because I’m surrounded by this: Continue reading
Wheeeeeee! Today I finished the ebook cover and a few pages. And to celebrate the milestone of simply beginning the thing, I have a gift for you! A free, downloadable, printable page from the book, with a totally new recipe that I’ve never shared before. Yay! Continue reading
I have, for now anyway, finally caught up on all my uni assignments and am able to focus on my next big project. The book. Yipeeeee! Also eeeek! I’m so excited about being able to share my recipes with the world in such a fun way. Tomorrow I start working on the book in full scale, starting with a cover page, so I can show it off. Reading the paper on the train ride home this afternoon, I was a bit excited to read my horoscope (Which I know is just a bit of nonsense, but it’s fun too!)….. Continue reading
Today when the house was quite with the sounds of napping, I took a pad of pastel paper and my mum’s box of pastels outside to sit and let rainbows smudge beneath my fingers. I haven’t used pastels in a long time and it was fun rediscovering how much I enjoy playing with them! The first page I opened up to already had a sketch on it, one that my mum must have done back when she used to take life drawing classes. It was a nice surprise… Continue reading
I am equal parts over-the-moon-excited and totally-terrified about my new project, and I think that I can’t be the only person who feels this way about new ideas. New ideas can fill you with such a big feeling of excitement, of possibility. They can make you shine with joy and they can make you buzz with enthusiasm and adventure. But they can also be a bit scary. They can make you doubt yourself and they can taunt you with the potential of failure. But do you know what? It’s okay to feel both. In fact, if you aren’t afraid of failing… where’s the fun in it? Continue reading
