Etsy Holiday Guide

I love to cook. I hate to shop for the food to cook. I love to do projects. I hate to shop for all the supplies for the project. I'm creative, but some days ... I just don't have it in me to actually create something new.

Yes, the above statements are all true. Sometimes it's asking way too much to get my butt in the car and on the way to the store. It'll only get worse with each day we get closer to Christmas. Last week, I showed you a few goodies from Etsy to kick of my Buy Handmade (or Vintage)Challenge for the Holiday Season. This week, inspired by the flower kit I showed you, I looked a little further in to the world of "kits".

Any and all of these would make great gifts for your most creative friends. Any and all of these are perfect solutions to "not feeling creative and don't know what to make" and/or "not wanting to fight the crowds for your patterns and supplies". Yup, you can either give these as gifts as is or go ahead and make them ... everything (patterns, supplies, etc) is included, all at very affordable prices. My kind of stuff!!!

First up is a super cute holiday kitchen towel kit. Great gift for a hostess (if you decide DIY) or the chef.Next up, for all the knitters out there - pattern and yarn is included to make this adorable little pear.
This cute little trio of embroidered Christmas trees can be yours ... so many ways to display it and also a fun gift for your artsy friends.For the coffee fanatics, make them their very own cup cozy! I think these are simply adorable and eco friendly, too!
If you've got a fashionista friend who has everything, make her a special hair accessory! You can pick from a few different patterns what you'd like to recreate, so the possibilities are endless.You really can't go wrong with these kits. Take a look for yourself ... there's waaay more where these came from!
