Jan, Feb & March

Volume 13                                                                       January / February/ March 2016
Welcome to our Purple Puppy Newsletter Greetings from the Purple Puppy Studio.

Can hardly believe it is almost the end of March – where has time gone…

So much has happened since the start of 2016 and sometimes I feel like asking the Universe to please stop the “bus” just for a few days to catch my breath.

Anyway, had some time before the Easter weekend to finish our first newsletter for 2016.

We wish all of you a happy Easter and may you all be blessed abundantly.

We also dedicate this newsletter to Pieter’s mom, who sadly passed away in February.

Ma Annetjie we miss you and your memory are close to our hearts forever, until we meet again.


We celebrated our 2nd anniversary on 22 March and had the most awesome meal at Anatoli’s Turkish restaurant.

This is by far our favourite restaurant in the world – the food and service is truly exceptional: www.anatoli.co.za

We attended a course last month, hosted by Manndi Schuld – “The Power of Purpose” what an eye opener!!

Discover your inner worthy self and the world is your oyster.

Should anyone need more info on this course, email Manndi: manndi@schuldinc.co.za

2016 started with a BIG bang and there is a lot of new developments in the pipeline, won’t give away too much but do keep watching this space J

Purple Puppy @ Kamers vol Geskenke

Most of you were aware that we were privileged to have our first stall at Kamers vol Geskenke in Irene, Pretoria last year at the beginning of December.

What an awesome experience we had – totally did not expect the response to our products and we were both blessed, happy and satisfied.

Thank you to all the ladies at Kamers: Wanda, Yolandi, Jeanne-Mari (to name a few) for all your hard work.

Purple Puppy Projects

We have been busy with quite a lot since the year started and it is so difficult to remember all and not have enough space to name them all but two that comes to mind is wooden wine boxes we did for Groot Constantia – with custom made / designed lids celebrating the Chinese year of the Monkey – Pieter was in his element designing these.

Allow me to invite you to make a turn at Groot Constantia, their wines are superb especially the bubbly (trust me).

If you need more info:  www.grootconstantia.co.za

The second project which I totally loved was wooden boards we laser engraved for Spier.

Simply stunning.
