Social Media and Blogging

I have three social media platforms. I was not sure what to do with that. I am busy watching Alexa Chung : Blogging and Building your Platform and find a lady Leandra Medine who write and post on twitter.

She was very active on twitter. Social media is really hard work and can take a lot of your time. One thing you need to remember if you are on social media you need followers. That is very time consuming and you need to follow and get the right people to follow. Also you have to work with a plan. Try to understand what you goal is with your social media platform. In my case I mainly focus on branding.

What Leandra did and that is what I understand she was doing, she had a blog and write about the fashion topic, then she tweet it. She said today Instagram is the way to go, and you then don’t need a blog any more. To start with followers on Instagram is difficult for me now, because I don’t have that much followers. I don’t understand how you can use Instagram as a blog.

Tonight I was looking around on Instagram and I see the only way to put a link to your blog is on your bio, so what I am doing is to refer people to my bio, and then they must click on the link in the bio.

New Ideas for Clothing

Tonight I was looking around for new ideas for clothing, specific men’s clothing. I am not exactly sure what I am looking for yet, but it must be something like this.

I like this two types of shirts, the painting is beautiful and I think if I can print this kind of fabric, it will be a good seller. I am thinking of buying spray paint, but it cost R345, it is a bit expensive so it will work out over R2000 for six bottles of spray paint.

It will not be that difficult to create this kind of effects, but you need to know how to do it, and I think with a lot of practice you will be able to spray it like that, or almost.

PÉBÉO – FABRIC PAINT SPRAY FOR TEXTILES 7A SPRAY – NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC FABRICS – WATER-BASED – SOLVENT-FREE – PERMANENT FABRIC DYE MACHINE-WASHABLE – SPRAY PAINT FOR TEXTILE

If you study spray paint techniques you will be able to get the style of paint that you want, like this on the t-shirt.

Teepee Tent also known as Tipi Tent

Image: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tipi

The teepee tent is a coned-shaped tent.  It was made by the Native Americans in the prairies in the western and middle parts of North America.  These Americans moved to hunt buffalo and other animals and move to hunt them.

Teepee tents were made out of long poles, and are covered with animal skin.  Today it is made out of cloth.

Tepees were put up in a circle, which symbolized life.  Today it is mostly used for special occasions and not as homes anymore.  The plains Indians normally paint on it and mark off evil.  The flaps or doors normally face the sun.

Men’s Pants – Men’s Fashion Line

I busy study men’s pants while I am busy making teepee tents. I realized that I need to draw the pattern and got an idea of the measurements. It is helpful to look at the video’s on YouTube.

While I am busy working I was thinking that I want to create one standard teepee tent with it’s own design. What I want to do is to make it a very decorative tent with a lot of new things. I don’t know how much it will cost but I will still work on my budget. I am thinking to do the same with men’s shorts, men’s trousers and a shirt.

The more I work I start thinking to design men’s streetwear. It is not a that bad idea I think because it is not suits I need to make, but nice informal casual wear.


I try to get ideas of how to decorate the teepee tent. This will go all up on the the walls of the teepee tent. I think as soon as I have this kind of ideas I will be able to create a very interesting tent.

I enjoy to day a lot, My friend which I know since I was 12 years old Hanno Schoeman was here to day with his wife.

Pieter and Hanno Schoeman

They took a photo of both of us and placed it on the WhatsApp group. We saw each other 30 years back and it was such a long time ago, but still he is the same good man, which I knew when I was a young boy and was looking for a friend.

Below is a video clip of his two daughters who sings. It is Afrikaans and this is a professional video clip which the two lovely girls made which I also met for the first time, today.

Teepee Tents Accessories

I am looking for more ideas for the toddler playing area. I don’t have children so I am not in the toy stores what so ever. Anton help there because he have three children and three grandchildren. So for him to go and shop for toys is not a new thing.

On Sunday Anton and I went a look for toys, we found interesting toys but it is really very expensive and if you like to have the dinosaurs toys and the Mickey Mouse toys you are go to take a lot of money with you.

Below I found these images on the internet of accessories for the child’s room. I look at the skin of the animal lying in Infront of the tent and then the small fireplace. It is all made out of fabric. It creates a bigger playing area for the kids and I think very safely as well. The child will get the feeling he is outside in the bushes if he uses his imagination.
