Feed the Birds this Winter

I came across this great simple way to feed the birds this winter - something to do with the kids.


All you need to do is get a toilet roll, cover it in peanut butter, and roll it in bird seed.  Then hook it over a branch in your garden (or where ever you please!) and watch the birds feast.  How simple is that!

Its all in the presentation

With Christmas creeping ever closer, I thought I would share some packaging inspiration for all those lovely gifts...









I love to sit with a glass of wine in the evening after everything is bought and make all those gifts look extra special.
