I said I wasn't going to claim anymore, but oh man it's addicting!

You're telling me!  I couldn't resist claiming Averia for jewelry.  Thanks for not resisting claiming me!  Lana is going to love her dead fish hat.  I might even steal it.  LOL!

Well add one for you to your list and maybe I'll claim you again next round!  Grin

Hehe, I can just imagine the smiles if we had 2 hats to run around in....I'd definitely have to ask my hubby to walk with us with his fishing pole.  That would be rad!

Okay..the fishing pole made me snort!!

Hypothetically speaking...what colors would the mama dead fish hat be?  Wink

Saweeet! I like boys stuff to be too detail oriented, so I tend to only craft boy stuff for my boys.

Hopefully someone can make play food...jus' sayin...

I can knit and crochet play food...just sayin' LOL

Also, I swear I'm not some crazy stalker person...my kids went to bed earlier than normal, so I have lots of uninterrupted computer time. Cheesy

I have a girl and another girl on the way Smiley

I'm already working on my list.

Woohoo! Baby craftiness  Grin

I'm probably in. My son LOVES getting mail. He's 3 and already has a pen pal! And I love making kid stuff Cheesy It would be great if someone with a girl joined because I can whip up girl stuff easier than boy stuff (I was given loads of girly fabrics and need to get rid of them!).

I have a girl! Just sayin'.... Cheesy

About Me:
My name is Kristen & this is my first time doing an Ongoing Wish Swap. I live in Houston, TX with my husband & 3 kiddos. I am completely obsessed with yarn, rainbows, coffee, dark chocolate, cloth diapering, couponing, & handmade items. Ive just recently found the hoopla love and want to start a collection for my craft room/office. I also love the look of patchwork and scrappy.
-I like polka dots, stripes, birds, owls, trees, fruit prints.
-My oldest son, Dominic, is obsessed with Legos and Mario.
-My daughter, Kaitlin, is obsessed with unicorns, rainbows, & Rainbow Brite.
-My youngest son, Seth, is into coloring (Crayola Color Wonders are huge at our house), books, & Thomas the Train.
-I am obsessed with the Wizard of Oz.
-I would love ANYTHING from my Wist, but the most recent additions are the things that I am completely in love with. http://www.wists.com/kbauer
-I am okay with previously loved items so long as they are in decent shape. 
-I dont like dark colors or jewel tones.
-Also, no crude or dark humor please. My little ones can read and are terribly curious.

-Homemade soaps, lip balms or candles- my fave scent is black raspberry vanilla or strawberry.
