Lake Fever Festival of Trees Barrhead 2013

Lake Fever Festival of Trees Barrhead 2013

I made a huge move at the end of summer.

I landed a fabulous job in a new town and embraced the adventure.

But no matter where my life takes me there are two constants.

Gingerbread and raising money for charity.

And this year did not disappoint.

One thing I have learnt in my short time here.

Barrhead does it up right.

From the Taste of Barrhead to the Pumpkin Walk (which we’ll talk about soon)  to the Festival of Trees. This little town supports the local events

You don’t have to be in a big city to see amazing people step up and raise big dollars for charity. It can happen anywhere.

I am so very proud to say that my 2013 gingerbread house sold for $600.00 at the Festival. All the money my house raised was donated to FCSS!

Love that. And it makes every hour I put into it worth it when I can make such a significant contribution to an event like that.

This years build was clean and simple. With around 120 hours work it is one of my easier houses. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll recognize my style.
