Do you ever wake up, look around your home and feel like your sitting in the middle of a department store?

Cookie cutter, plastics abound.

But where is the soul of Christmas?

Has it been so long that we don’t even recognise it anymore?


There is an answer.

The best news is that it’s cheaper, it’s simpler, and it’s more fun.

Have a homemade, family Christmas.

It’s what everybody used to do!

Until we somehow got the idea that we had to keep up with the Jone’s, and that meant store bought, because somehow we also got the idea that homemade was bad, store bought was good.

Well, it’s come full circle about now, and we are seeing that store bought is not better.

For many reasons it’s not so great at all.

  • Look at what industry is doing to the environment?
  • To our health.
  • To small business.
  • To family.


Start this Christmas.

Think twice before you buy that Christmas knick knack, decoration or gift

  • Ask yourself, can I make one myself?
  • Can I have some fun doing this with my kids?
  • Can I make something that my loved ones will cherish and look at fondly everytime they see it because we made it?
  • Can I make something that my family and I will cherish, because we made it?
