Christmas Art and Community Carols

Christmas is the busiest time of year for me and my wood-burning shoppe on Etsy. I look forward to it so much. I collect audio books from the library to keep me entertained, position the fan to keep me cool, and potter along burning all sorts of items for Christmas pressies around the world.

This week I’m burning more than usual because on Saturday is the second annual Creekside Carols Under the Stars in my home village of Allora.

It’s held in the tree-filled Dalrymple Park by the creek and is such a jolly event. This year it’s bigger than ever with over 30 market stalls including jewelry by my friend Leah, seedlings from my friend Kathy, organic skincare by my friend Leanne, and wood-burned items by yours truly.

After wandering through the market stalls, there’s delicious food available – including fantastic Indian food made by my friend Hazel.

Once you’ve shopped and eaten, had your face painted and petted cute little animals, you can settle in for a great concert, singing along as local performers, like my friends Sarah and Stacey, lead in beloved Christmas classics.

If you’re in the neighborhood on Saturday, I hope you’ll join us in ringing in the holiday season.

Now it’s time for a good breakfast and and some more wood-burning.

What events are you looking forward to this Christmas? xo
