christmas retreat


(Sung to the tune of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen…”)

No rest for Ye merry Midnight Elves

For Christmas is on its way,

There’s nothing Christmassy on our shelves

but let’s not be filled with dismay!

For parents young and parents old will come and lend a hand

To save us all from lack of stock when we sell at our market stand!

Oh come and help us sew and felt

it will bring us so much joy,

Oh come and chat and eat and drink

and make a Christmas toy!

The Joy of selling and sharing

It was awesome sharing 2 banana boxes of Midnight Elves Creations with the wider anthroposophical community here in Aotearoa.


Over the long weekend October 1st- 4th I was one of 7 Steiner community members from Motueka to be in Hastings at the annual Anthroposophical conference. We had a stall to promote our school and also displayed and sold crafts. Everything we had on displayed was enthusiastically admired and over $1,040.00 worth of toys were sold. There were two women wanting to buy the same pony. This wasn’t a problem I just took an order.A number of exquisite flower fairies had been crafted at our end of winter retreat. Sadly these had not sold at spring fair so Violet and three Snowdrop fairies were on sale. I was delighted when these were scooped up on the first day. Would I do it again? Yes, it was an absolute pleasure setting up the display and seeing the craft items being purchased by their excited new owners.

The Midnight Elves at the Spring Fair

It was a beautiful spring day with all the trees and plants flowering and once again Ellen and Sarah made the room look beautiful

It is always magic to see the children come in and be entranced by the toys. This beautiful mermaid doll was whisked away by one such child.
