Christmas Toys in Progress
I've been a busy little elf latley working to get some of little girls Christmas presents finished/started! I think these little dolls may be my favorite this year. I hope to also find a set of natural wood blocks to create little houses and beads out of:) I even ventured out to Toy's R'us today in search of a set of wood blocks...let me just say yikes!!.....but there was nothing but plastic..haha:)
So I want to ask you guys if you have any suggestions for a place to get a variety set of natural wood blocks? I would make them myself but I scared to use the wood at hardwood stores...or is okay to use the plain wood there? Hmmm...have any of you all used regular hardware store wood to make toys? Thanks in advance for all your help!!:)
P.S. What kind of special Christmas gifts are you all working on? Have you found any good tutorials to share?:) I read over on Elsie's blog "A Beautiful Mess" that she will having 12 days of DIY, yay sounds like fun!!
P.S.S Here are a few projects little girl has been working on:) We used a glue stick to rub glue over the entire gingerbread man and then sprinkled him with cinnamon, he smells so yummy!!
