A Little Can of Bows with 3 Beautifully Crafted Hair Flowers

I was so excited when one of my Shopping Guide members let me know they are featured on Eleventh Avenue {formerly GroopDealz}. Their sweet Little Can of Bows is an adorable package that girls will love and it's only $17.99. Each Little Can of Bows {which are 40% off right now} comes with 3 beautifully crafted hair flowers (red, white and pink) and 2 white stretch headbands - 1 for newborn and 1 for older girls. You can even re-use the Little Can as a stylish and fun storage solution. And, what I love, is that Little Cans fit newborns, toddlers, children, and adults.

The Cutest Stocking Stuffers Around : Squatles Are Here

Pamela of Pamela Smerker Designs and her son have started the most adorable handmade business . . . they make the cutest little hand-stitched felt creatures called Squatles. Along with their ever growing collection of pre-made designs including bears, dogs and even holiday themed Squatles, Pam and her son can create custom designs. For my daughter's 8th birthday, I asked Pam if she could make a My Little Pony Twilight Sparkle look-alike. The Twilight Sparkle Squatle was perfectly hand-crafted and my daughter was beyond excited to have her very own Squatle.
Here's a photo of her unicorn Squatle sitting pretty on her package tied with MLP ponytail holders . . . along with a few other designs you are sure to love from Pam and her son. ** Remember to order your Squatles by December 7th to receive by Christmas.

Read. Dream. Play. Repeat. Gift Ideas from Stories that Inspire Imaginative Play by Addie and George

I absolutely LOVE the idea behind Carey's adorable handmade shop, Addie & George. Carey's original hand-drawn siblings, Addie & George, love to dress up and act out their favorite scenes from their beloved books. In the Addie & George Shop you will find nursery wall prints, book themed decor for children's and nursery rooms and even the sweetest stuffed Addie cloth rag doll for your little girl. These are perfect gifts for readers, writers and booklovers this holiday season and all year long. As Carey writes . . .
Through these two siblings, I hope to reintroduce a little bit of childhood that allows us to see secret passages in the wardrobe, doorways to other worlds in a tall field of hay or cast spells with a wooden stick.

For me, the Addie & George logo says what every childhood should be like . . . Read. Dream. Play. Repeat. Wouldn't you agree?

PS: Don't forget to follow Addie and George on Facebook for sneak peeks and discounts!

DIY : Cute Dollhouse Cardboard Bed Template

When I arrived to my parents house on my daughter's last day of first grade, there was surprise waiting for her. They had found a HUGE collapsible dollhouse that fits my old Barbie doll she now plays with there. As soon as I saw it I had visions of creating some cardboard furniture for it. My first one was to be a bed. Well, I have found the perfect template for a cardboard dollhouse bed from Tara Dennis {just need to lengthen it a bit to accomodate a Barbie}. I can't wait to create this with my daughter and let her decorate the headboard and footboard.

Oh, and that button rug? Isn't it the cutest? It's made by gluing buttons onto a piece of fabric. There's also a cute bedroom table template from Tara. {I think it resembles an ironing board so I think I will make it be that and my daughter can have fun pretending to iron all of Barbie's dresses}

Printable Wrapping Paper {can be colored and even personalized}

Etsy is so great for finding unique ideas. How about these printable {and instant downloadable} wrapping paper files from Paper Glitter? Some can even be edited so you can personalize the wrapping paper. I love how it comes with black and white illustrations to allow for fun coloring by either the child giving the gift or by the child receiving the present. Brilliant!!!
