National Heritage


OH BOY, have we just had the most marvelous day at work. Tomorrow is our National Heritage Day and as we're the Rainbow Nation it's rich and diverse. The company decided that all the staff would celebrate the day together and we dressed up and had traditional dishes for lunch.

I did a LO of some of my photos. Credit for the cluster frame goes to Kim B. I'm the one in the centre pic with the red hat. They dressed me as the Zulu queen and it was hysterical. I had 2 "maidens" that went everywhere I went today and they swept my path clean for me. We had Xhosas, Muslims, Hindus, Zulus, Twanas, some domestic workers and even a bunch of school kids. As diverse as we are (and that is in the company itself) we had an amazing day.

Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika - Our National Anthem and the first line means "God Bless Africa"



And I've also played some more with Kim's Anniversary Grab Bags (on sale for a limited time only) and I've made you this little freebie with just a few of the items. It's a "tie-dye" paper, torn paper, realistic flower, bit of ribbon lace and a doodly bird. Isn't it just the cutest little bird you've ever seen?

Thanks for the freebie -- I just love that little bird of yours.

Is there a way to enlarge your scrapped page? I wanted a closer look but couldn't figure out how to do it (which may be the fault of my new browser, it doesn't show links the way Mozilla did).
