Make this Christmas more crafty and kind than consumptive

On the radio the other day, I heard this stat: the average Canadian will spend $100,000 on Christmas over their lifetime, with a sizeable portion of that dedicated to decorating the house!

So, as I reel from that figure, I’m appreciating some of the tips that Growing Great Children have shared of late, of DIY decorations that you can make from things in the recycling bin that will give you a creative outlet, inject some festivity into the season, and hopefully, keep a little money in your pocket (that might be better spent on a gift card from the Pemberton Valley Supermarket, that you can donate to the Pemberton Food Bank, for inclusion in Christmas hampers. If you really want to contribute to making Christmas festive.)

Also, the Lil’wat Nation Homestead group is hosting a Christmas Craft and Bake sale at Ullus on December 8, 11am – 3:30pm. If your making skills are better than mine, then grab a table. Reach out to Patricia Williams if you’re interested.
