"Tis the season to support local"

“Wouldn’t it be great if there was a central directory of locally-made, ethically-produced and upcycled gift ideas?

Well, hold the phone - Makers & Local by Ecomailbox have done exactly this, and it’s EPIC! There’s gifts broken into categories, DIY ideas, an eco advent calendar, social enterprises to support, low-waste gift wrapping inspo, and even gorgeous must-see beaches to explore over summer.

Plus 24 of NZ’s eco bloggers have shared their tips for a Merry Mindful Christmas. From great crafty activities, DIY gifts & acts of kindness to celebrate the festive month of December more mindfully and sustainably.

Healthy Birthday Cake Maker required 🤩

Kristin from Remuera

Hi I need two birthday cakes for this Sunday 02/02.
One just plain vanilla sponge type covered in sprinkles (low sugar no preservatives) for 10 kids.
The second more suited to adults in a number 5 shape - this could be Madeira or something a bit more fancy - for 12 adults - still lowish sugar etc.
Does anyone do healthy birthday baking?
And what do you charge?
Thanks 🙏
