I claim momof2! for some crocheted food for her 7 y.o. daughter.
I claim BriannaB03 for a scarf for her friend going thru chemo.

Hi!  Grin My name is Barbara (a.k.a.-LadybugsAndBumblebees).  I live in Long Island, New York.  I am a preschool teacher for 'at risk' students.  I have three children-DS age 20, DD age 12, and DD age 10.  I am married to my high school sweetheart.

*PLEASE do NOT claim me if you smoke, or have smokers in your house.  Thank you.*

HUGE BIG WISH:My DD is becoming a Bat Mitzvah this coming June, and the theme for her party is butterflies.  Anything you can think of with a butterfly theme that you could make for her party would be great!  Some ideas I thought of:  Butterfly corsage, butterfly garland, butterflies I can use to decorate the table with (put in centerpieces?), etc...If you have any idea that you'd like to try, please PM me.  Any colors are fine.

On my Pinterest (link in signature), I have a board titled:  "Please Make Me A Gift For..."  On there is ideas of gifts for family, friends, co-workers, etc...  PLEASE make sure to check that board for ideas of what I want.

Here's a small sample of what I would like to receive from this swap:

-a stuffie of a Boo-bah (I can send a photo.)

-minion (from the movie 'Despicable Me') amigurumi
-any dark blue Volkswagen themed items for his car (He doesn't have the "bug", he has a Passat, but he's very proud of it! Roll Eyes)
-any bug related items (He's an exterminator.) (Just not spiders or praying mantises, he doesn't like them.)

[/u-Disney princess themed items
-pillowcases (her favorite color is purple)
-items for her to use to teach with (she's a teacher assistant)

FOR FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS, ETC...I could use multiples of these items, please...not necessarily all made in one claim!    Wink

-zippered pouches (*THIS IS A BIG WISH*)(I'm making soap savers, washcloths, and hopefully will have soap that will go into these-if you need an idea of how big to make them.)
-keyring macaroon purses (those little round ones)

It's me again.  I am apologizing again.  I have no idea what is taking the package so long to get to my partner.  I mailed it to your DH's office with attn: to you, rockingbearranch.  Is it possible that he forgot to give it to you?  I hope that has been the issue, otherwise next time, it would be quicker just for me to drive to you and give it to you!  Tongue

I know it's been awhile.  I will re-make the package for you if that's what you and the organizer would like.  I do have to say though, I've never had a swap package go missing....they may take forever to get where they are going but none have been lost-thank goodness.

I'm itching to get started on this swap!  I made a list of possible items I can craft for my partner, now I need to see what item fits into what size category for this swap.  I've also been saving some items that I think I may be able to craft with for this swap.  

Plus, I want to go yarn shooooppppiiiiinnnngggg *whines*......... Roll Eyes

Momof2 received the package I sent her for her daughter!  Yea!  Cheesy  (DH mails them on the backs of turtles, so I have to cheer any time a package gets somewhere on time.)

That is beautiful and an unusual pattern.  I think it would be pretty with variegated yarn too, although trying to follow the pattern with that kind of yarn would probably be very difficult.
