Handmade Toys for Christmas

Can you believe that Christmas is only 100 days away. It will be here before we know it. The weather is already starting to turn colder here in Vermont. The leaves are changing colors and I had to grab my sweatshirts out from my winter storage bin.
This year I am going to try and purchase more handmade items. It's great to purchase unique gifts for others and why not support the handmade artists while we're at it?
This past year has been crazy for so many of us - including me. I lost my job last September and remain unemployed. I know there are many others out there like me. So this year, let's support them by shopping in the handmade venues - whether it's Artfire, 1000Markets, Etsy or any of the other places out there. Of course my favorite is Artfire.
Here is a sampling of Handmade Toys that you can find on Artfire.










While you're on Artfire, be sure to stop by my studio and pick up some Handmade Finger Puppets.

I am making one of those lovely houses for Jayne for Christmas! It is deffinately worth the price to buy it already made, it is A LOT of work. I am going handmade all the way this year : )

Michelle - those houses are really cute. My kids loved making sheet tents in the living room. I'm sure they would have loved one of these. Actually, even at 17 and 15 they would probably love one. LOL
