  • Big Bee Report Back

    Big Bee Festival

    Wow, what a weekend we had at our Bohemian event for Swellendam's first ever Big Bee festival! We were very busy bees indeed, but had loads of fun too!

Moonshadow was buzzing with visitors from all over the place who had lots of fun shopping and exploring our various Bohemian displays and activities. Continue reading

    Bohemian Beading at the Big Bee

    by Christine - Moonshadow's resident artist and queen of all things beaded.

    For me the universe consists of not atoms, but beads. Wherever I go, wherever I look, I see beads - the waterfall showers sparkling clear beads over the moss; the sun shines on the snow and trillions of silver beads pop up; waves roll in and bless us with sprays of beads. I lie on my back on the forest floor and see a kaleidoscope of bright beads through the branches. Bushes are covered with bead-berries in all the warm colours - yellow, orange, red, purple. Trees drop wonderful earth-coloured beads in the form of acorns and seeds. And even at night, the pure joy of looking up at the bead-filled heavens. Continue reading
