Christmas Shopping

I Took The Handmade Pledge! BuyHandmade.org
So, were you wondering what I meant by "I took the Handmade pledge"? Yep, this Christmas is all about making and buying handmade. Wyatt has so many plastic-breakable-within-a-year toys. Jon and I are both trying to be better stewards of our money.
1)get out of debt
2)don't buy unecessary things

That includes Christmas time too. I've done pretty well so far.......until I went to Walmart and drove Wyatt and I through the toy section. Grrr.....those dinosaurs.....a mini Swiffer....oh look at the cool truck...and it makes a roaring sound! So hard!!
Today I have been shopping on Etsy. Wow, there is so many options! ...now I just have to choose...
Below are items I picked as favorites. Jon and I can choose together. I picked things that had little to no shipping and were reasonably priced. Be aware that this week and next are the weeks before shipping gets expensive! If you want to see more things I found at good prices then go to my Etsy shop .









Help support an artist! Stick it to the man!

Leigh, I've been looking at the toys that you suggested--which truck do you think that Wyatt would like? Also like the star crayons--good prices.

Wow, you're super quick mom! If you want to see even more, just go to my etsy shop and click on my favorites. It's amazing what good prices there are....equal to Walmart actually....but heirloom quality.
