Creative Cookie's Cake-a-Phor #1

“Cake-a-phor” #1
Chocolate Lava (LOVE) Cake
Even since I was a little girl, I have been making up little stories in my head, with a plot, dialogue and scene settings…etc.  These little stories could go on for days and I would “slip away” into my mind every chance I got.  To my astonishment, I realized the other day that I have passed this quirky little trait on to my eldest.  He is forever having little dialogues with himself and on more than one occasion, I have had to ask him to lower the volume on his sound effects :-) Since discovering this, I have given it lots of thought as to why I do such a strange little thing that is obviously a part of my genetic make-up…….and I have come to the conclusion that I am an absolute romantic at heart!
I love getting lost in a good story with strong independent characters of substance, just like the outside of a firm chocolate lava cake, but at the same time, I also love that at our very core, there is flowing movement, a oozy bitter sweetness…….. And, although we fight it and guard it with all our might, the goo in our own centres is the part we are meant to share with others.  It is such a challenge for us, for me.  The outside we share willingly, but the goo is off limits.
I think that believing in Jesus and letting Him truly be your inner voice, you have to allow Him into the softest part of you.  This, this act of total surrender is the most beautiful part of this romance we are living in today…..this story……the GREATEST Love Story of ALL Time.
For everything created by God is good,
and nothing is to be rejected
if it is received with thanksgiving,
for it is made holy by the
word of God and prayer.

1. What inspires you?
Firstly, Jesus is a big inspiration for me. I met Him when I was 18. He changed my life. Reality shifted when that happened. We each carry a unique aspect of God, we are His expression. So I want to help people release who He is as them. He's locked up in each one of us and I have declared war on conformity, pretending, manipulation, self-hatred, rejections, fear, ignorance and deception because these keep the light hidden.

My other answer would be pain. The pain I've experienced in my life, I have a strong desire to help other people heal from and overcome the things that have stolen from them and kept them small. I hope my journey can lift their eyes and help them find the way out of their own darkness.



Dis lanklaas wat 'n fliek my so opgewonde gehad het dat ek my man wil afvlieg om die uitsending in George te gaan kyk. Die fliek waarvan ek praat is THE ROAR, 'n Frans Cronjé film, wat ek onlangs in Pretoria met die vertoning daar gaan kyk het vir resensie doeleindes. Die film stem so wonderlik ooreen met Nasie se leuse en hartklop...
Die hele fliek gaan daaroor om uit te vind wat jou lewensdoel is, dit raak te sien en om dit te bereik. Spreker, Gustav Gous was ook daar gewees. Hy praat gereeld oor lewensdoel en sy insprake was vir my baie spesiaal gewees. Hy het gesê mense dink hulle het net een doel, maar ons het eintlik ten minste 9 doele wat God vir ons elkeen uniek gemaak/gegee het. Dit was vir my 'n baie lekker ervaring en veral om te sien hoe opgewonde Frans Cronjé is oor hierdie film!
The Roar vorm deel van 3 verskillende films onder die Purpose Campaign. 6 Below wys reeds by lokette, The Roar en Victor is die ander twee en word die 2de Maart en die 13de April bekend…

1.Wanneer het jy jou passie om met klei/keramiek as medium te werk ontdek?
Ek is die jaar na matriek as Rotariër uitruilstudent na Australië. Dit was in 1984. Die skool in Australië het geweier om op daardie stadium ’n “wit” Suid Afrikaner in die skool in te neem. Die enigste tersiëre instansie wat bereid was om my te onderrig was die plaaslike technikon en ook net die kunsdepartement! So ek was baie gelukkig om heeltemal toevallig vir ’n jaar lank ’n diploma in keramiek te kon doen. Die medium het my perfek gepas. Ek het teruggekom en kunsonderwys op Stellenbosch studeer. Op Stellenbosch was ’n wonderlike dosent in keramiek, David Steele, wat my liefde vir klei verder aangemoedig en ontwikkel het.

2. Wat inspireer meeste van jou werk?

Die klei self is die sterkste inspirasie. Klei is ’n wonderlike medium. Wanneer ek met die klei werk is ek baie bewus van die proses. Hie…
