Planted the seed...Kaleidoscope Monthly market is here to stay!

We did it!

What a great day..I have finally recovered after one of the most fulfilling days of my life. A vision became a reality on Thursday November 4 and all you wonderful people shared it and experienced what 'Kaleidoscope' is all about.

Watching all the happy kids and mum's sent chills down my spine.. the kaleido-kid room was a massive hit with 45 children at the 10am story time with Trina from Sunshine Coast Libraries and don't forget a very popular Little Musos and Kidfit workshops were a hit!

The atmosphere was amazing thank you to all the amazing stalls.. the stall design competition is very close so I will take it to our facebook and website followers... vote by emailing or facebooking your favourite stall design.

I am so grateful to have such an amazing group of talented people a part of 'Kaleidoscope'.

Now the seed is planted; Kaleidosope is HERE and monthly you will get to experience the Kaleidscope market Experience December 2nd at Lake Kawana Community Centre.

Get ready for christmas...
