Day 6 of 10 Days of Christmas Crafts and GF Cookies

Hi there! Welcome to Day 6 of 10 Days of Christmas Crafting and a GF Christmas treat recipe!


Today's 4 crafts are on a video and I thought it would be both a handy way to see the instructions without having to click to another site.  I also thought that the four crafts would give you a couple of good ideas for the weekend, so that you can use the crafts on the video to have fun all weekend (or go back to the days you might have missed and do them on the weekend).

As someone with an interest in our environment, I truly was attempting to look for crafts to RE-use stuff we have cluttering our houses, and not just a project that requires running out to the local dollar store to bring in more junk.

I am also not keen on the use of glitter and the toxic chemicals in certain crafting supplies.  Microplastic glitter often ends up in our water ways and is ingested by the animals.  Because of the findings of a study by University of British Columbia, the Art Centre in Richmond, BC, has banned all glitter and microplastic materials in their art programs.  I am sorry that there were both plastics and glitter showing up in these particular crafts.  If you can do them without either, please do!  Be very careful, also, when spray-painting the Christmas tree with gold paint-- go outside, if possible, or at the very least, wear a mask and do the painting in a room with windows open or in a well-ventilated art space.

A messy stack of Raw Nanaimo Bars-- luscious!


Nanaimo Bars are claimed as the unique sweet of the city of Nanaimo, British Columbia-- on the same Vancouver Island that I call home.  There is a story, of course, and you can read it HERE with the recipe for this heavenly square.
