Today was brought to you by the letters b, g, and t. Boogie boarding, gin & tonic. Took our 6 year old boogie boarding for the first time, and he loved it!
Hawkes Bay has turned on some fabulous weather 🌞⛱ Life is good.
I met Mr Andrea 35 years ago, we have been together 34 years, and yesterday, celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary. We had a lovely meal, always nice when someone else cooks for you. Thank you @nathanwingham and @tayloranitawendi for your contribution to our meal. #ajhub
The back to school class today was so fun. It's so great to see the kids expressing their creativity and each of their creations were so different but so awesome!

When the wire breaks on your super awesome soap cutter and you have 5 kids in the house, it takes a great deal of effort to control ones language. They were nearly all proficient in the use of many adult words.
Had to use my 2nd rate wooden cutter 😭😭😭
Replacement wires have now been ordered, and it's almost time for pilates. Phew.

- All matter of whimsical delights -
Handcrafted by me in The Wonky Pixie studio. 🧚Faery houses
🧚Faery LOTS of things! (With so much more coming!) Faery - Mermaid - Dragon - Elf - Witchy - Unicorn - Pegasus - Wolf ...............
And anything in between :) I use my own recipes for paper mache, paper clay, clay.
Harvesting my own flowers in my gardens, herbs and shrubbery for creations - or I source some (my mums garden is one place haha!) I forage for twigs, woods, shells and always give a blessing if something happens to cross my path.
I never ever take from a living tree in a forest, it is always something that falls on my head (you have no idea how often that happens hahahah!) and I also gift my harvests at times as well. (including foods) 🧚The fae has been with me since I was a little kiddy, and I absolutely adore creating with nature and fae inspiration.
But I am only one person, and sadly I am not that energy or health rich so my progress of creating my new things can take longer.
The timing, essence and connection all need to be feeling right, and in tune with my heart <3 🧚I have some wonderful things coming and on the cards (so to speak) and will slowly add them to my webstore as they are finished.
All to do with nature, whimsy with a dash of Pixie dust ;) Or maybe it will be dragon or mermaid dust. 🧚Stay tuned for new whimsy, thank you for following my arty journey <3

—>>> hello fans! I create often with crystals and have some new cool things coming... I’m wondering what are your favourite crystals?
While I love and adore them all, I do love amethyst and moonstone, although I could be here for quite a while listing them all 😍😍💜 Pic: a quick snap of some in a pile 😂😂 Ps: I charge all crystals in the full moon. If I get new ones, they are never used in my creations until they are cleansed. 🙂 ✌️💜🌿
Summer is here!
Such a great day with our minions going for a bike ride, playing mini golf, and ending with fun in the paddling pool and a couple of glasses of rose.
Shame it set off a wicked sinus reaction. Looks like G&T's for me from now on.
What have you done to celebrate this beautiful weather??

Had a great summer/tropical themed party today. The girls made tropical bath salts, dreamcathers and charm bracelets.
That time I floated in the sea watching and photographing this dreamboat of a jelly 💙😍✌️ Soooo magical to watch and witness 💚🧜🏻♀️

Who else has tried this drink? It was the 'mental clarity' that grabbed my attention. I am not a big fan of blackcurrant so it's been in the chiller a few days and I kept overlooking it for kombucha. Last night it was HOT in the commercial kitchen, I hadn't eaten properly all day and needed a boost. Wow, this drink from @drinkarepa REALLY hit the spot! So much so that I have ordered a dozen more, plus their powder for my chia seed breakfasts. Give it a go.
Looks like three blue blobs, but this is the results of recipe testing today. Turns out making your own bouncy balls isn't as easy as just following one recipe. It's more like deliberately making slime fails. And the results are more like bouncy putty than actual solid balls. YouTube failed me this time, but I won't give up.

I still haven’t floated in the sea at sunset... with my camera.
Best to get on it! Or in it :)
And we're back!
I'm back from holiday, the chickenpox are now finally leaving our house, and it's back to reality.
If you've been waiting for your order it's probably in this pile.
Have a great week! 🌞
Anddddddddddddddd I am back!
The website has been updated with a few more items added (and some sent into the shop) and posts all ready to be posted :D
All orders will be posted out from today <3
Thank you for supporting The Wonky Pixie!
Have you enjoyed your break?!
Still school holidays for me, and many of you so I won't be here 'all' the time, I will check each day if I have any messages.
Did you know until the end of January @craftcentralnz - Craft Central Pop-Up Shop is open every day?! ANDD The Wonky Pixie has a few things in there.
So if you are in the city, please pop in and check it out and say howdy to the lovely staff members :) PS: Aren't Pohutakawa stunning right now?! I have discovered I have a red and yellow one on my fence line <3
