We love feijoas and are lucky to have some abundant trees this year, although as seen here my gathering has been interrupted 😂🐈

Sometimes it can be hard to use them all and sharing is great. If you like to whip up a treat now and then or get *creative* in the kitchen, there's many tasty ideas for feijoas! Many are simple as adding to sponge or apple crumbles, pie, slices etc. Do you have a favourite blueberry muffin recipe? Try swaping out for fejoa!

Remember if you want to do any pruning or shaping, plan for end of harvest!

Share with our neighborhood in the comments what your tips and ideas are 😄

Hi Neighbours,

I have been encouraged to start sharing special things I support locally and Nationally with you all on here.

Here's the first one I am going to share - Wellington Children's Hospital -providing specialist care to sick Children (similar to Starship-they do have to work together), these guys are hands on, making sure they run efficiently and importantly they work hard to make sure the kids and their families are comfortable and well looked after during their hard time and that the facilities support and provide a healing comfortable environment .

Alot of us would see our children sent there for specialist care god forbid they need it. I have meet the people that run the foundation and work closely in the hospital, they are a caring, heartfelt and hard working bunch who give, give, give.

Hopsi the Lion is their very cute mascot, he often visits children in the wards to bring happiness to their days (they take turns manning the outfit and feel privileged for the children's happiness). Children get a little soft toy Hospi to keep them company too. They work hard to have nice areas for the children and their families - trying to make those hard times just a bit easier and fund state of the art equipment to support their care. (like vein finders - and their new kids hospital!)

Every little bit helps so if this is something you want to support I encourage you do, there is also some cute merchandise on their site which also goes to support their great work.

I will try to give regular (not to frequent) updates on different charities and organisations that I support and are close to my heart.

I would love to hear about the charities and organisations you support and that are close to your hearts - please share this in the comments below <3

Hi Neighbours! I hope the silly season isn't being too silly for you! Some have time some need time, either way DIY Christmas stuff can keep the kids busy, entertained (out of your hair) and help the fun and magic of Christmas.

Google searches will give you an array of ideas, projects, decorations and games. I found a couple of stuff.co.nz articles with some cool ideas I thought I would share.

- What to do with all those cards! See some ways to creatively display them here.
- Want to create your own paper baubles? Here are some great DIY ideas for that!
- There are 5 cute DIY ideas here.
- And who can forget Christmas Dough decorations - I remember them from school.
- Along with a wreath here are some more cool ideas.

- Even some festive colouring can be great to keep them entertained, decorate and give you some time, google images and many websites have great printable options here is a google search.

As adults often we are caught up in the stress and timelines of Christmas - remember the magic and help the next generation enjoy it, but hey don't forget to enjoy it yourself - that is what it's all about. :) I wish you all a very safe, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you in 2019!

(I'd love to hear/see you ideas/feedback in the comments!)

Here are a couple of videos a photo of previous made to order gifts! Have a watch!One beer handle, one mason jar light two pet portraits.

I have a selection of blank pieces atm. Each piece different around $50 Each dependant on item and art work. Have blank glasses (sets/wine/beer) coloured light up bottles (glass water bottle style) +lots more can order in to suit also. I like to keep my clients included throughout the process with pictures of progress and direction. Can follow specifics and make general ideas come to life.

Questions?? Interest?? Ask away :)

*Please note I work full time and can generally complete an order per weekend.
