Toddler Gift Guide Holidays 2014

The holidays are getting close, a little too close for comfort in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I love holidays. I dream of the scent of fresh cut Christmas trees, twinkly lights and hot chocolate....but when I start to think about gifting, things get a little crazy. While I'd love nothing more than to be able to make gifts for those I love, time isn't really on my side these days. So, I'm making lists of great handmade (by someone else) items that I know my family and friends will love, and would like to share them with you! All of these finds are from Etsy with links to their shops below. I figure if we're going to do the whole presents thing, we should support small business, right?

kalalu news and upcoming markets

The last few months I have been in a vortex of legos, booth fees, and scholarly journals, and I'm surfacing just for a second to write this (then going right back into the spinning). Balancing going back to school, staying home with Oscar and working on KaLaLu has been challenging to say the least, but these are all really good I'll stop whining!

Anyways, I'd like to share upcoming KaLaLu shows with you guys!  I've had a lot of fun with markets this year, and have found some awesome local artists! Here's whats up:

Artisan Faire/ Temple Beth Israel
3601 W. Dempster Street
Skokie, IL 60076

Holiday Vortex by Paper Moon Pastry
3519 W Fullerton
Chicago, IL

Made in Chicago Market by The Chicago Reader
"Block Thirty Seven"
108 N State Street
Chicago, IL

If you print out this post and bring it along to one of these shows, I'll give you 20% off one item!
