What I… Debbie from Pure Sweet Joy

I recently came across the prettiest blog which I thought you should know about… Pure Sweet Joy is written by Deborah who is passionate about DIY, be they crafts, sewing, gardening or home decor.

Deborah is a registered dietician and spent 2014 living and working in rural Mpumalanga which she blogged about too in a series called Hospital Life on her blog. Since arriving back home in Cape Town she has started a private practice and is currently trying to navigate the road of being a small business owner!

She also creates really lovely downloadables for FREE which I think is super generous of her!!

Read all about her over at her blog or below…

What I…

Being creative energises me. If it’s been too long since I’ve made something it seriously affects my mood. I am blessed to have loving parents, siblings I call friends, friends who could be family and a wonderful husband to walk the crazy road of life with. I have a lot to learn, but I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Making things. Giving gifts (and free downloads!). Seeing the joy and growth in other people when they move towards their goals and the privilege of being able to help them get there. The smell of rain. Cape Town. Looking at old photos. Having people in my home. Instagram. Catching up with old friends. Hot chocolate and a blanket on a cold night.

After having my head stuck in textbooks and research papers for 5 years while studying, I’ve struggled to get back into reading but every now and then something really grabs me. After resisting Hunger Games for a few years (who wants to read about people killing other people?), I finally watched the first two movies and then HAD to read the books. I also enjoy Ted Dekker, small business guides and blogs.

To travel and experience the beauty of the world. To make a difference in people’s lives by combining craft and nutrition. To grow vegetables. To run a 10km race. To see a South Africa that is united. To blog more

I’m a simple girl when it comes to clothes. As hard as I try to get more variety into my wardrobe, I almost always end up back at good old Pick n Pay and Mr P. Often the item that I’m really not sure I should buy ends up becoming a favourite.

A few minutes to lie in after my alarm goes off each morning. A good challenge and to be learning and stretching my abilities. Encouragement. Community.

Thanks for taking part Deborah. I loved sharing my space with you.

Kathryn Rossiter

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
