Let Every Day Be Christmas - Norman W. Brooks 
Christmas is forever, not for just one day, 
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself. 
Yes, 'it's beginning to look a lot like'.....as catchy as 'Baby Shark', those Christmas songs will be ringing in your head in no time! (and possibly now Baby Shark, apologies). 
Hermoine here, part time BellaCrafter and part time Elf (#ibelieve). Well, the Elf bit may not be entirely 100% true but my love of Christmas certainly is. This time of year brings with it many things and for me, it is an excuse to spread a little more joy and reflect on all the things that we can be grateful for. And let's not forget the cosy nights with twinkly lights, warmed mince pies and mulled wine! 
Christmas is also another excuse (as if we needed to tell you) to get your crafting on! And what better way to do this than to gather as a group and create something memorable. It just so happens that we may have just the activity lined up for you too!! It's Lantern Parade time! 
Every year we love teaming up with Winchester Cathedral to host Lantern Making Workshops ahead of their Christmas Lantern Parade! The spectacular parade takes place on Thursday 29th of November in the Cathedral grounds and is an absolute sight to behold. 
The lantern parade really is a thing of magic and for us marks the beginning of the festive season in a beautiful way. We are always left in wonder after each lantern is created as each one is so unique. The only limit is your imagination. Every year we host workshops to help you create whatever you choose with this beautiful tradition of shaping willow! We include all materials plus our team will provide you with advice on planning and creating your very own lantern!
