I love supporting local and so I often order from small businesses on social media... BUT this was my first visit to the Locally Yours market in Port Elizabeth. This shop showcases a lot of handmade items from local businesses around Port Elizabeth. It is well worth a visit if you are in PE.
I managed to find a doorstop (Symara Factory Shop) that perfectly suits my Queen Bee’s room and these gorgeous mushrooms for the kids to play make believe (DOE-earthandplay)! #locallyido #locallyyoursmarket #algoafm
So much talent on our home turf! #supportlocal

How can one see all the products available? Especially the adult kits
“Ooh we’d love to win this pot of deliciousness. We’d share it with Claudia Schley and her beautiful family on her homemade waffles. (Nothing like inviting yourself for breaky). 🙂 yay Kath Schley from DOE-earthandplay you won! Kath entered via Instagram! Follow us there.❤️
Proud to say these are still enjoyed and looked after. Also tagging along on a mini getaway to Tsitsikamma.
As today's my birthday and I am off with a cold, I have had some time to reflect and write on the past couple of months. There is so much bad stuff in the news but wanted to share some joy and positivity. I also wanted to share some experiences we have had at local business and urge you to support local as we head into the festive season.

May you all be blessed and have an amazing rest of the week.

Sometimes you have to make your own rainbows

Here's hoping you can see the 🌈 in whatever your circumstances. Life is full of rain, but the rainbows come and sometimes we just have to change perspective.

You can now purchase a loose letters set! It's a calico beauty containing a lower and upper case letters set, with an extra pair of lowercase vowels.

So good for matching, word building, letter sorting and placement.
And then for crafting when your little is all learner up!

$5 💜😊🌈

Make your rainbow. Be someone's 🌈. Look for the rainbow.

I need a onesie. 🙃

Gorgeous colours though and aren't these 🐻 gorgeous. Perfect for those Autumn inside play days.

Let's make poop
Amazing how that gets attention. 😊

But seriously learning should be hands on, bright, tactile and stimulating. It should inspire and engage.

So let's make 💩. Trust me this is a lesson your little and big won't forget.

Our Digestive tract, Lung and Heart watercolor playdough mats are now available.

They are $1 a page.

Revised Numbers!!
Swipe right to see em. 😊

Basic number formation is essential. That's why we have changed our old prints. And we have added +-÷×=. Just brilliant!

Thrilled to be adding these important signs to our double sided number sets.

Named after my prominent legs in prayer position.

Fact: I am a carnivore
I live for about a year
I sometimes eat my mate after or even during mating
I can turn my head 180 degrees.

Just fascinating! So much to learn, so much we don't know. 🙂🙂

So my bug collection is growing! Any tips on how to store and preserve them?


The fear to try so often stops our dreams.

Be fierce Mama, show them it's ok to try, it's ok to fail and it's GREAT to FLY.

But without the risk, without the courage we will never FLY.

Inspired by a beautiful creation given to me by one of my babies.

Made at the incredible @lilfordia_school.

These little tween stamps work so well. Brush out any sticky dough with an old toothbrush ready for your next use. 🙂

It's Friday. 🎉🎉🎉Today I can breathe out. I pick up my babies.🌼

Why in the world have we put our kids in boarding school. Especially when I am so pro nature based learning.

Don't worry I keep asking myself that.
We live too remotely to be day scholar's. AND probably the biggest reason is is that this Mama is tired, realising I can't give it all to my babies anymore, not being physically able to make decisions.

So some time to breathe and yet breathing seems so hard without them here. 😐.
So maybe it will work for them, maybe it won't. There are lots of plans that change in the scheme of it all.

Allow yourself space to make mistakes, get back up. Be as brave as you can. Be real. Be kind. Make a change in the lives around you.
But Mama, I can't tell you one thing, if you aren't making sure your ok, it tends to fall apart.

Valentine's shopping, birthday gift stash? Pop into @popup_collective_zw
On Saturday morning 🌞.

@two.can.creations will have some of my goodies. A great opportunity to see some amazing entrepreneurs.

I will be watching my littles first tennis match, but hope to be at the next Pop up. 🙂

Nuts about you. 🌼

These beautifully hand carved acorns are so lovely.
Use them as a snack tray, treasure tray or nature tray. They will last beyond your little ones childhood years.

Something about wood? Yes it is timeless.

Worried about shameful cutting of trees - it's a good thing to be concerned about! We are all about planting trees in areas that are sustainable (where they will be looked after to grow into big trees).

Available @harperandsloane_za and @doeearthandplay


Sending you Friday 🌈.

Love hard, squeeze them, tell them you love them. Listen, play, cuddle.
Those are our plans... Yours?

Watching my babies play unhindered with simple natural things. As they turn simple blocks into boats and castle walls, fireplaces and princes waiting to rescue their princess's.

I feel so rewarded in the freedom they have. So encouraged by the hope in which they have for their future. Their play is positive and fun and full of energy.

Oh to be young again. ...


Look for the beauty.
It's all around you


I wrote a letter to my love

And on the way I dropped it someone must have picked it up and put it in his pocket.

Anyone else play this game as a child? I went to boarding school growing up and Valentine's day was always a huge high or low light.
The excitement of getting a letter. Who could it be from. Butterflies in my tummy.

Valentine dough, little letters.... 💗

Please don't forget I have amazing wholesale and homeschool prices 🙂. Pop me a DM, let's chat

January 2022
Clean slate

Here's too another year of being a Mum, wife, teacher, sister, daughter. Here's to doing things well, to getting up again when we've fallen and to sitting with those a while who need to rest a while.

Here's to adventure and the seeking out of the small and beautiful.

Giving thanks often, laughing filling out homes. Longer hugs, mindful living, breathing slower, happy times and fulfilled little ones.

So here's to the wide open space of 2022. 🎉🎉

Handmade and ready for your play🐝🐝🐝

So as farmers we really rely on these beautiful insects to do their thing.
Super excited about the tree seeds we planted a few months ago. They are almost ready to be planted out. 💙

These beauties can be found @harperandsloane_za in South Africa
@littlesomethingzim and from me direct @doeearthandplay for $15.


Look for beauty. It's everywhere.

When you look, oh my do you find!

New Year Prep.
Wish it was this easy to get my thoughts and emotions in order❤️

So 2022 right around the corner. As a family we have some HUGE changes coming and my Mommy heart feels like it mIght explode.

Boarding school. Anyone else feel my apprehension. Any coping tips.... Besides pills which at this point I'm seriously considering. So why the personal bits of info because as a small business you learn we are all in. We are the help, the bankers, the planners, the workers, the boss. I sand, cut, stir, roll, mix, stick, sort, cook, sew, email, sell, pack, send, deliver, order.... So many doing words.

And so it all rolls over into one Mum trying to create, trying to do good, trying to be better while holding all of it together.
