So here is where this little experiment gets tricky. Christmas time. I’m actually pretty excited about it and although Hubs hasn’t made any commitment to handmade I’ve been thinking of several fun homemade gifts/projects he/we can do for the kids as gifts for Christmas time. I’ll keep you posted on how it pans out.
Since I’m the holiday shopper in the family I was helping Hubs out by looking around on Etsy for a couple of handmade gifts for the girls. He’s buying, not me! Anyway, I came up with this little round-up and thought it might help some others of you out there looking for cool handmade gifts for your little ones this holiday season. Happy shopping!

Little Miss O, another little girl in PZ’s playgroup, had her third birthday party on the 15th. We had a great time at the Children’s Gym. PZ especially enjoyed the trampoline and Q was just happy to get out of the Ergo and onto the mat. For this little girl, an avid Yo Gabba Gabba enthusiast, I made a Muno pillow. I found the no-sew pattern on the Nick Jr. website and printed the pattern out. It was super easy, although I did sew mine just because I didn’t really like the flattened edges of the no-sew pictures. I just used craft felt that I had left over from making Solstice decorations and Elmer’s School glue for the eye, mouth, and teeth. Muno came out so cute. Now PZ really wants one. They have patterns for Foofa and Brobee, too!
