Happy Last Day of November Everyone!
12/1 and 12/5 Holiday Workshops
Tomorrow kicks off my holiday fun – starting with the 9th Annual Kissing Ball and Wreath Making Workshop on 12/1/18 – Can’t wait to see all my creative elves yet again.
Then the following Wed, 12/5, is the 2nd Beginner Workshop and we have a large group forming – but still could squeeze in a few more elves if interested.
Location is Broad Brook, CT.
Fee is $45 pp.
Additionally, I will be taking custom orders for wreaths, kissing balls, and hostess gifts starting next week. All with fresh greens, made by hand, and with lots of love! Pick up by appointment is required.
WinterFest MarketPlace Stafford
And finally, I will be participating in a great Winterfest MarketPlace in Stafford Spring, CT on December 15th – a great day for families. There will be many activities plus the vendors at the town hall. Fun day to shop and enjoy the many small businesses in the town on Main Street.
Gift Cards and Box of Greens
Don’t forget we also offer Holiday Gift Cards during the month, and Box of Greens – All details are on my workshop’s site, called www.WORKSHOPSCT.com.
Short Holiday Story
After one amazing day with friends and family at an annual Holiday Workshop, Cathy T found a black winter coat by the outdoor fire pit – left behind by an attendee.
She searched and asked, but for a solid year, no one claimed that beautiful black winter coat. There were no clues. Nothing in the pockets. Just an XL tag and that was it.
She didn’t remember anyone wearing that black coat. Who’s was it?
So – ever since, cause you see, if fit her perfectly, Cathy T (Mrs. KB) decided to start wearing it.
It wasn’t snug like her other black (similar) coat she usually wears this time of year, and she was thankful because every year, around the holiday workshop prep, something magical happens.
A Christmas vibe enters, music starts to be played daily of holiday tunes and the tv comes on for those corny but inspirational holiday movies, and the extra pounds get put on from all the holiday snacking while making wreaths and such for customers.
After all, much energy is needed with all the prep for Mrs. KB’s holiday workshops and custom orders.
Thus, that mysterious well-fitting black winter coat, well, it was a God-send because it fits just right during holiday time.
Gee, was it is an attendee who left it behind? Or was it some mysterious Christmas spirit who recognized Mrs. KB needed a better, warmer coat?!
Just one of the many stories from the many years of offering these holiday workshops here at Container Crazy CT’s – and we will create more this year too.
Ho, Ho, Ho. Cathy T.
