Holly ARTS a Winter Celebration

Glass ornament from Teresa Wik

Change is the word for the season. We have to be creative for the holidays and most of us will spend less. Make it a celebration of life in the mountains. Don’t stress. Make your gifts if you have time, but keep them simple. Reflect on what friendship and love mean in your life. Show someone you care and forgive someone else. Life is good in this winter wonderland.

Holly ARTS has gifts you can embellish and make your own. There are a variety of beaded bracelet kits with instructions. Or add glitter and a festive ribbon to aromatic cinnamon ornaments. They are inexpensive and simple projects perfect for parents and children alike. Play the soundtrack from the Nutcracker, pop a bit of corn, sip a cup of cider and voila! You have an evening family fun and homemade gifts.

The Holly ARTS exhibit offers original winter-themed art, cards, decorated trees, hand-crafted wreaths, ornaments, jewelry and gifts. Are you looking for something special? Discover exquisite hand painted scarves, crafted pillows, and beautiful and functional ceramics. Glass icicles, snowflakes, and fairy ornaments are available to adorn your windows. All are made by area artists.

Holly ARTS is a special way to celebrate the season at North Tahoe Arts, 380 North Lake Blvd. in Tahoe City, next to the Fire Station.
