Homemade Christmas and Birthdays

My husband and I never planned out when we were having our kids. It just so happens that between Dec. 20th and Jan. 24th is all three of our children's birthdays and Christmas! So I always try to find deals through out the year and such to save us some money when trying to throw together Christmas and Birthdays. Well this year I didn't buy much at all. So here it is half way into Nov and I have NO Christmas gifts and only Birthday gifts for one child. My youngest is going to be three in Jan. I remembered that a couple years ago I got on a felt food kick and made a bunch of donuts. I also got together with a few crafty moms and did an exchange. Her brother loved the stuff. I had made him a camp fire with all the fixin's for S'mores. It was adorable. So I started looking for stuff for my daughter. I came across this fantastic shop on etsy with amazing patterns Gulf Coast Cottage. There are things for boys and girls. There are a couple different specials too. One is a buy 4 tutorials get one free. Or there is a bundle set on their store front that is for 10 patterns of your choice for $45. What a great deal! Thanks to these patterns I now have my soon to be 3 yr old's birthday gifts planned out. If you have a little one who loves to play pretend check out this shop and their adorable patterns!
