Handmade over Walmart!

In a couple weeks my little boy will be three!

I know this not only because I gave birth to him, but because every day for the past couple of weeks he wakes up, goes to the calendar and counts down until he gets his monster truck birthday cake. (this is very important to him!)

So for the past couple of days I have been working various ideas for handmade gifts for him and I ran past a very interesting blog post about what is cheaper...buying vs making toys. Check out the post here---> Whileshenaps Also while you are there please check out her handmade patterns for toys! LOVE THEM!

I understand that buying toys can be really cheaply done with stores like walmart and dollar stores etc... However there is something magical about receiving and making a handmade gift! It’s something that the recipient will know you put thought and time into... and time anymore... is priceless...(you can’t buy time at walmart...trust me I have tried)....

So as I go back to looking for cute patterns I think we all should stand outside of walmart with handmade gifts and stop people from making a horrible shopping mistake by going in :)

A couple Cute Patern Ideas I'm in Love with at the moment!!

We have been reading The Hungray caterpillar alot lately.
 My lil guy is very interested in how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly!

A stuffed superhero! Need I say more!
How handsome would ANY lil boy be in this hat!!!!!!


  1. Happy 3rd birthday! Hope it's a great one filled with lots of handmade goodness!
