A trea­sure trove of ideas

WIN­NING LET­TER Mrs C Tlaga of Benoni writes

What a won­der­ful mag­a­zine, from the ed­i­tor’s let­ter to the back page by Riana. I’ve seen your mag­a­zine on the shelves be­fore and have been tempted to buy it a few times. This morn­ing, my son-in-law dropped me off at our lo­cal shop­ping cen­tre so I could run a few er­rands and we ar­ranged for him to col­lect me at noon. I fin­ished what I needed to do, with an hour to spare. So, I de­cided to treat my­self to iced­cof­fee (some­thing I haven’t done in a while) and I needed some­thing to browse through...

I’m 70 years young, my hus­band of 42 years died over a year ago and my daugh­ter and her two chil­dren live with me. One of these days, she’ll go to live on her own and I’ll need to down­size – and your mag­a­zine is a trea­sure trove of ideas!

To all the ed­i­to­rial staff: con­grat­u­la­tions on a won­der­ful mag­a­zine; it will be on my shop­ping list ev­ery month now. PS My daugh­ter is typ­ing this for me on her com­puter as I’m a bit ‘tech­no­log­i­cally chal­lenged’; my cell­phone is still the old type – no swip­ing fin­ger on the screen. As long as I can re­ceive and send SMSes and calls, I’m happy! I was in­spired to do some­thing cre­ative with this man­dala which I found in your Paint it! 2016 – none of the sides are the same!
