Love HeartWood’s Journal

2021 love heartwood christmas events

by | Nov 8, 2021 | events, journal

I love this time of year because I get to go out and be sociable. It’s so great to be doing in-person markets again. Lockdown made me realise how important it is to have conversations with you guys about what I make and why. So here’s a reminder of where I’ll be and when over the next few weeks. Local events like these are the perfect place to shopsmall, shoplocal and find those unique, Christmas gifts.
