DIY Framed Flower Art | Mother's Day Craft Idea

It's Mother's Day in South Africa on Sunday and I am not sure about you but a handmade item made with so much love and attention means the world to me. It is so important to let your children pour their love into something to give you. And my kids are always keen to do some arts and crafts. This idea is something that is super affordable, gets them outside and looks so pretty hung up in your house. All you need is: Cardboard cut into frames Pens/Crayons Flowers/leaves/grass from the garden…

Doing your bit for the planet and a GIVEAWAY with Rawco

I was listening to my friends Siobhan's podcast the other day about The Lost Art of Compassion (you can find it here) and I really resonated with the words that were spoken. Her guest, Dane was chatting about compassion and how we may feel quite powerless to make changes for the planet as our actions or choices we make, may be insignificant to the crisis going on in the world at the moment. Like, how on earth am I going to change anything - my actions will have little to no impact. He goes…

Dark Chocolate Fruit & Nut Bites

I found the recipe for these on Pinterest yonks ago, actually, while I wrote this I popped onto Pinterest to have a look and I pinned it a year ago. And finally I am making them. (That's what happens when you have a baby...) And I so wish I had done it earlier. Oh these are so perfect for the on-the-go snack or the late afternoon snack or even the 9am snack. Bottom line - they have fruit and nuts in with a bit of chocolate so you can pretty much have them any time of day in my book. Plus…

Rainbow Zoo Biscuit Fudge

If you are looking for a super fun but also SUPER sweet recipe for a party or a gift then this is a great recipe. The sugar content made my heart skip a beat, I won't lie so I adjusted the original recipe a bit by halving the sugar. Zoo biscuits are South African - they are vanilla biscuits with icing on top with the added animal too. They are a firm favourite with kids and adults alike here. I remember them growing up! What you need: 250ml castor sugar 180ml evaporated milk 30ml butter…

11 Podcasts I'm listening to

Since finding my creative soul again I stumbled into listening to podcasts. It is so relaxing to sit at my desk while I sew and cut felt for my orders and stock for craft markets (thank you for all your support so far!) and listen to inpirational ladies talk about motherhood, small business, being creative and generally just making me feel so normal. It also helps me curate my business, nurture my wellbeing as well as give me such amazing ideas. I thought I would share some of the podcasts I…

Healthy Chocolate Rice Puff Squares

So I eat a lot of cake and biscuits. I think that is a known fact if you have been reading my blog for a even short period of time. It is how I survive the sometimes long days of motherhood. Plus anyway - even those who don't have kids - we all love a treat right? But I have been becoming more aware of how much of this stuff I am eating so I thought I would try some healthier treats - still with some chocolate in it but maybe just a bit better for me. These little squares do not disappoint…
