I claim watsonsc for some fabric bowls!
So, my list is mostly the same for now, but I am looking at this as the opportunity to build my gift stash, since I still will gift to all the same people throughout the year-- and I have some birthdays coming up in January!
Hiya! I'm Molly, and I live in Oklahoma with my amazing husband and our pug, Cookie. Please pm me with any measurement/sizing or other questions.
ALLERGY: We are all sensitive to smoke, and my husband is allergic to cats-- if it's not specifically FOR him, it's totally fine
A note on my multiple wishes: There are many things I'm requesting multiples of, in no way do I expect one person to take all of that on! Feel free to pick and choose whichever number you feel is fair.
An overall note: My peeps and I all love re-purposed/vintage materials as much if not more than new/storebought since they are unusual and one of a kind! Please feel free to incorporate those materials into any of my wishes.
**= I would super duper love you forever 'n ever!!Stencil/Screenprinting/Painted T-shirt wishes
**For a coworker and others. If someone who screenprints using the photo emulsion method would be willing to make and send me a screen I own the image and text I want to use (I even have transparencies). It seems that I no longer have luck with burning screens successfully.
**For a coworker/friend. This epic beard tee, or something similar. He is a medium- large in t-shirts-- a long/tall medium is the best fit for him, he's super tall and skinny.http://tinyurl.com/lyrdpyc
-(For me) Unicorn Tee with this phrase-- The more pastelly and magical the better! The phrase just stenciled and spray painted would be great, too. Ombre would be super neat with that method. Bleach stenciling, too! Pastel purple, turquoise, pink or mint green (on white for the neutral/constrast). I am a medium in T-shirts, a large in junior's sizing or fitted teeshttps://www.etsy.com/listing/118061917/always-be-yourself-unless-you-can-be-a?ref=market
-(For me) If anyone could do me a tee in mint green with a VW minibus on it somehow.... you would be my hero.
Medium in T-shirts, large in junior's sizing or fitted tees.
-(For me) Black Lithographic type print of anything, really-- but especially hot air balloons, ferris wheels, old ephemera type ads/postcards, old pictures of cars or an art nouveau flower design. Inkodye is amazing, too!!http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/lumi-process-allows-you-to-print-on-fabric-and-wood-using-just-sunlight-video-11-07-2012/Sewing
**A travel organizer/caddy/bag for my mom's stash of Perle Cotton embroidery thread (still in long skeins). She loves purple, bright gypsy colors, cutesy owls and muted realistic nature themes-- leaves, branches, trees and sheep. Maybe someone can help me brainstorm a design? I have no clue or links!
**An apron for my amazing friend (B-day in January)! She loves cooking and she doesn't know it, but she's a bit of a girly girl at heart-- I'd like to see something that incorporates some ruffles but sticks to her colors and understated glam but no fuss style. Think black and white/cream, gunmetal, tonal neutrals with some kicks of pattern/glitz/color. Very modern yet traditional and laidback.
This color combo and look is her to a "t"http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/e1/7d/c0/e17dc0f6b1df886a280fe4786942e289.jpg
-(friends) Scarf necklaces all color combos-- or even just serged or zig-zag edged lengths of scarf strips would save me much time in making these-- I don't have a serger!http://www.scarves.net/blog/diy-anthropologie-scarf-necklace
-(Mom/Dad/Friend) If you have an embroidery machine, I would love some embroidered pieces that I would give either as appliques or use myself on gifts to others (on pockets, journals, hats, etc).
-"Mo Money Mo Problems" Bonus if it's cursive. Could use this one in a few different fonts.
-"yeah, brah" for a guy
- Tree of life/Aragorn's tree symbol
- Owls-- especially in cute colors or tribal
- Tribal elephants in bright colors
-Ferris wheels or hot air balloons
(Maybe more if I think of it)
-(Me) A mixed media tee like one of these or inspired by it. I think these are great mixed media/Teesha Moore candidates. On white, gray, mint green, or mostly any color. I'm a medium in t-shirts, large-xl in fitted tees or junior sizing.http://tinyurl.com/n2r5a6rhttp://tinyurl.com/ktonxqaJewelry
-(Co-workers/friends-- could use several) Long drapey necklaces with or without beads in all colors/finishes, but especially silver, seafoam, pine or all shades of green, MOP or pearlescent/white, copper, gold, brass, black, magenta, turquoise, any bright saturated color or jewel tone. Quirky is fantastic, so if you have quirky charms, or even want to make an assortment of mixing and matching that would be fab. Fabric, paper, fused glass, leather, wood, mixed media elements welcomed. Let the creativity flow!!http://tinyurl.com/n3gkkc6http://tinyurl.com/lwyw3wb
-**(Mom) Shawl pin. Something like this http://tinyurl.com/lxdnpvj
or a leaf or a tree of life.
-Friend w/b-day coming up: Anchor bracelet(s) like Rox makes!
-(Dad) A manly copper cuff. He likes Celtic and tree designs.
-**(Dad) A manly belt buckle with Celtic or filigree designs. Bonus if it can have a J in the middle.
-(Me) Anything inspired by my jewelry board on pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/guacamolly/jewelry-and-hair-accessories/
I really *love* jewelry and unusual accessories, so if you get a feel for my tastes and want to send me something you think I'd like, I love surprises!Foodie Wishes
(DH) Homemade Foods like beef jerky, hot sauce, spice blends. He loves trying new things, and while it doesn't *have* to be hot, he signs waivers for hot sauces, so, just sayin'. It definitely can't be too hot.
-Some tags for a friend who is always making and giving jams, cookies and goodies away. Maybe even an assortment of sizes and even some small cards that could go on top of a pan of brownies or plate of cookies. I'd love it if they would say MO's MOlicious MOrsels that also leaves space to write what it is
-(Me) Business card and slightly bigger sized jewelry cards, mainly for earrings and bobby pins. Themes most desired: Kraft, white or solid cardstock with a black ferris wheel, carousel, typewriter, bicycle, text, flower, etc. Repurposed from other things is great, too!
-(Me-- for gifts) Gift tags/little squares to write notes on the back! Holiday related or any time of the year is great. I would prefer for them not to have holes/ribbon. Stamped, mixed media, repurposed maps, mod podged, anything is great. I really like these (Do not have to be this tag shape, I really like just regular squares a lot): http://www.pinterest.com/pin/203084264416641223/http://www.pinterest.com/pin/21955116907472258/
- Boxes cut from cardstock (solid, kraft or prints) for me to fold and use for gifts. Maybe someone has a BigShot?
**(Friends) A manly leather-like journal/sketchbook. I could use three. Bonus if it can have initials. Initials in order of importance: J (3 of them), S
Some examples (doesn't have to be any of these)http://tinyurl.com/nh6b7rphttp://tinyurl.com/paxzu7qhttp://tinyurl.com/ne6osothttp://tinyurl.com/obg74tp
(friends/family) An assortment of headbands. Thin width, preferable with a little stretch, many styles would be great, but tribal or vintage trims especially. All colors/styles welcome.

Other methods ie crochet are welcome!http://tinyurl.com/mdana3jhttp://tinyurl.com/k3odmf3http://tinyurl.com/kqkve5ghttp://tinyurl.com/l8ghovfhttp://tinyurl.com/p6uhql7
(friends/co-workers/family) Tagged journals. These are sooo awesome! I could use several. New or vintage/repurposed fabrics and such, I really like the fabrics they used. http://www.radicalpossibility.com/2012/07/making-anthro-inspired-moleskine-and.html
(Mom/friends) Components for these amazing candlesticks. I think these would be great gifts for several people.http://tinyurl.com/my8k2ye
