it's been a while

Hello!!! It has been more than a year since I was here. Time flies!
Sometimes I wonder if people still read blogs. I do, but I must confess that I'm a devoted Instagram user and spend most of my social media time there. It is a fantastic visual platform.
In any case, I'm back here and will definitely try to post more regularly.
What has been going on around here? Well,  we're still living in Uganda. Almost three years now since we came to Kampala. Again, time flies!
I have downsized Fournier to the bare minimum because the time difference with Bolivia and the United States was taking me to the next level of craziness, trying to "remote control" the business in the late hours of the night. It was crazy! I do keep on knitting for a few old time customers and also knit some of the toys myself at my little studio in Kampala. I love designing and knitting my little creatures.
Eight months ago, I started Rose Vanilla, a small baking business. I do it from home and all by myself. I see it and do it as another creative avenue for my design work. It is long hours of work, especially on weekends,  but I'm loving it and the positive feedback from customers has been amazing!
These are some of the cakes I've made in the past couple of weeks, but I also make "alfajores, cupcakes, "brigadeiros", marshmallows, macarons and other sweets that are only available in Kampala at Rose Vanilla.
