Mayalief is the result of a crafty, creative worker-bee falling in love with her beautiful baby girl and muse - Maya. Since 2015, our business has expanded and our family has also grown richer in 2017 when we welcomed our second daughter, Amelia.

It feels like just yesterday that I decided to ditch the 9 to 5 and start my own small business. What was once an excuse to stay at home and play dress-up, has now become an established home-based ‘factory’. Starting with scatters and toys 3 years ago, we have now established ourselves as a trusty local supplier of baby keepsake items and Afrikaans (my mother tongue, which I dearly love) baby items. Our modern and minimalistic ‘the story of you’ baby book has become quite popular. This journal is ideal for capturing all those special moments and memories of your little one from birth through to their 5th birthday. Recently, we have expanded this ‘the story of you’ range to suite the needs of different mamas. We want to encourage every mama to embrace the capturing of shared memories. A parents love for their child is so great - and it makes for the most beautiful story.

This journey has been a great blessing and I thank all the Mayalief-mamas for the continued encouragement and support. I have made so many new mama-friends and have become so deeply invested in other mompreneurs' businesses. Mayalief has been a rewarding venture from day one, starting under the trees at Irene Village Market. We have now moved online and I send my pretty products nationwide. I have shared many tears and even more giggles through social media, popped bubbles when celebrating and drowned my midweek Mondays with endless amount of coffee. Entrepreneurship has been one crazy ride so far, but the testimony of His glory and grace is told with every print printed, every baby drawn and every next day and year I celebrate this wonderful venture with you.
