I am absolutely horrible at posting pics so I have a huge photo dump to lay on you guys, but no worries, it's all awesome stuff!
I got some phone charger cases from grab a coffee, I love these! I am claiming the purple one for myself!  Grin

I got 3 notebooks from guacaMolly, I wish I could claim one of these for me too but they're already spoken for.

I also got an amazing angel package from quaggy before christmas with some tissue holders

3 wine bags

And this awesome ladybug that my mom LOVED!

Finally, just the other day I got an awesome package from P_E_S_T for a baby in a crib for Daysie. This is just beautiful. It is the perfect size for Daysie, she just loves it. I know I was supposed to hold on to it for her birthday, but it was just so cute I couldn't wait!

She does fit right i side, I only just put her in there.

Thanks so much guys!!!!

Yay!!! I. So happy everyone's gifts went over so well! Mine were a huge hit too!   I have a bit of a pic upload coming right now too. Before christmas I got an adorable scarf from lydiaharper. My pics of it are horrible, it's black with bows all over it. Please if you have pics post them Lydia!

And watsonc7 sent a huge spoiler package just like she always does! She claimed for minecraft gifts for Ethan. It was perfect because Liam and Aidan are the real mc junkies but Ethan likes it too and gets a little emotional when they get mc goodies and he doesn't so I wanted a package of it just for hi and wow did she deliver!  He got his ow backpack

With a creeper book

A TON of minecraft magnets. These are like $20 for HALF this amount. There are ALOT!

An enderman pencil case

And each one of the boys got their own personalized cups!

And Averia sent me some goodies too! The twins and quenton got snowball surprises.

And 4 snowman chocolates

And now that suereal has recieved I don't feel so guilty about sending late and I tore open my package!! It was just so perfect for me!!  First there were amazingly sewn rupees, I love these!! So do the boys. I did as suggested by suereal and told them that if they wanted them they needed to cut the grass  Cheesy (she also said break pots, but that might have not gone over as well  Cheesy). You can also see the awesome sugar skull container that I love!

And inside that awesome little container was this adorable zelda life bracelet!  Look, I've only gotten 1 hit! Lol

And then there was another box, inside that was NAVI!!!

I've gotta find the perfect place to hang her. It says hey, listen under her, just like navi, she's painted glow in the dark AND suereal has added a light!! 

My pictures suck, but suereal has posted some, I'll have to look again and find the links.

Thank you so much! And I'm thrilled you like yours! I loved how fanboy turned out! Chum chum too, but fanboy was my fave.

Sooo, we don't get mail on weekends here, not Saturday or Sunday. So when a new package appeared on my table Sunday evening after I spent the day at my moms I thought nothing of it. Then today it's still sitting there so I checked it out, turns out the po delivered it Sunday afternoon and DH put it on the table for me!! He thought I'd realize but I didn't. I only opened it this far because I'm sending suereals package tomorrow. Then I will think about if I should wait til christmas or open it then! Eeeekkkkk, isn't it pretty???

Ok I'm here to post my awfully late but awesome pics!!

I got an absolutely adorable Dino tangy for madden from texscrapper and a hello kitty wristlets that I know Haley will love! (Aunty.hela don't look!)

Next underthemountain as usual totally spoiled me! She sent a bunch of felt masks and moustaches for Ethan that I KNOW he will adore!

Then she made me FOUR anchor bracelets! Too cute!

And she made an extra, no not a little extra, she made the ballerina charm bracelet for Natalie!! I've wanted this forever and she even got her favourite colour green!!

Thennnn, I got a package from guacaMolly. She sent Daysie 2 cute headbands and some play tea. I didn't open the tea bags, they're wrapped so cute. I know Daysie will love these

She also sent Haley some pinup inspired hair bands. The red and white one is awesome! It ties, but she put in an elastic so it won't fall!! Genius!

Annndddd, she sent Daysie an absolutely adorable shirt!! I have to apologize for this one.......

See that cute little hand?? Ya, that's daysies, I tried to tell her it wasn't hers, but she's grabbing all excited saying that's my shirt!!! So she is wearing it right now running around pulling the ribbons and saying I love this one and I love this one. Lol, too cute and I'd get a pic if she would sit still for a second. So I am sorry but apparently it's not making it under the tree.  Grin

Thanks guys!!

Welcome to the Ongoing Holiday Gift List Swap! Round 12!

OK guys, this is the last round of the holiday list swap for 2013!!! Let's make it the best one yet! Let's make lots of amazing claims and get those trees overflowing with awesome handmade goodies!!  This the place to help your fellow Craftster narrow down their holiday gift lists.  This swap welcomes every winter holiday including Christmas, Hanukah/Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, etc.  If you want a handmade holiday for your friends and family, this is the place to get help on your list.  From grandma to your own kids, your lists can include almost anyone in your life that you might need a little help crafting for - even yourself!.   Please read through this initial post carefully before joining and PM me with any questions.

How it works:

This swap will work in an ongoing format.  The first person in the swap will post a list of handmade items that they would like.  The participants then look through the list and if they can fulfill that particular wish, they claim that person for that item and post their own list for the next person to claim them.  This works like a chain.  Person A is claimed by Person B, Person B is claimed by Person C, etc.  You must claim to be claimed and only one person can claim another at a time.  

Each FOC can have up to 3 outstanding claims at a time.  A non-FOC craftster gets two claims at a time.  A new swapper can have 1 claim at a time.  Once one of your claim is received and the organizer is notified, you may claim again.  

What is on the list:

Each participant can post as many size medium requests as they would like in their list.  Please try to post a minimum of 10 items you would like so there is a variety and a better chance of not stalling the swap.  You may post larges or smalls as well, but please realize that to fulfill the swap requirements, you are only required to claim and send a medium.  This swap will be for handmade items only.  Organizing your list by crafting medium is a good idea to help other participants find something on your list that they are good at, but is not required.  Please note that because these are holiday wishes we are filling, items should be your absolute best quality.  

How to make your list:

Please format your list to have an introduction that lets us know a little more about you, such as your name, your general location, etc.  Please format your wishes so that each participant has a clear idea as to what you are looking for.  Posting links is highly advisable.  It is also a great idea to provide participants with as much relevant information on the gift recipient as possible.  Here is my suggested way for formatting each wish:

<item> <recipient> <preferences> <link>

Doll dress for my daughter.  She prefers pink floral fabric with a velcro or button closure.  Here is one she likes http://URL GOES HERE
Allergies:  Smoke

Including allergies right underneath of each wish keeps the allergies in focus.  This is such an important part to consider when claiming someone.  If you format your wishes like this, they will be clear and you are more likely to be claimed quickly.

Making a claim:

Once you make a claim, you must PM the participant that you are claiming for their address and to discuss the item you have claimed to make for them.  Once you make a claim, you are committed to making that item.  Remember, you only have two weeks to complete the item and ship it.  If you choose to send extras, they do not contribute to the size of the claim.  A medium is technically either between 2-3 hours in time, or $20-$30 in supplies/value.  To claim the person who is currently available, respond to their post with I claim <username> for <item claimed for>.  For example, if I were to claim myself to make socks, I would write, I claim mama24boyz for a hoopla.  Within that same response, you then post your own list so someone can claim you.  

Send Outs:

Just like other ongoing swaps, you will have two weeks from the date of your claim to send out your item.  There are no exceptions.  DC#s will be absolutely required.  If you do not provide a DC#, it will be noted in your feedback.  If you do not provide a DC# and your package gets lost, you will be required to resend.  You must PM the organizers with the DC#/customs# when you send!

Qualifications to Join:

Anyone is free to join under standard Craftster Swap Guidelines.  Due to the time constraints on claims, I reserve the right to deny any Craftster that has a history of lateness.

Receiving packages:

Please PM me as soon as you receive each package.  This is so I can keep track of claims.  Pictures in the gallery are also appreciated.  Some of your fulfilled wishes might inspire other wishes for other participants.

Other important info:

You do not have to message me when you claim a person.  You only have to message them for their address.  Please PM me however when you send your questionnaire, when you send your claim, and when you receive a claim with the title: OHLS 12: questionnaire, OHLS 12: sent!, etc.  Also, Please PM me with any questions you have.

Please do not claim a person until you have been approved for this swap and it is listed in your profile!  Please do not claim a person once one of your claims has been received until the person receiving from you verifies your package arrived and is exactly what you claimed them for. (Unless you have open claim spots, of course!)

Sometimes, a person's list will stall the swap.  When your list has been up for more than 18-24 hours without someone claiming you, please try to add more items to your list so you have a better chance of being claimed.  Remember that it is possible that not all of your items will be claimed.  

There will be a discussion/gallery thread in the Gallery area.  This is an area to give us updates and discuss this swap.  

At the end of the month, whoever is the last on the list will be first on the list for the following month/or the organizer (me!) will be the ending claimer.  You will have to sign up for each additional round that you choose to participate in.  You must be current in the previous round to be accepted to the new round.

This swap is open to international swappers, as well as new swappers.

I reserve the right to deny participation to anyone who is late in previous rounds of this swap.  This is a holiday swap and should be fun!

If you want to participate, here is the information to send to the organizer.  Please have the title of your PM be the name of the swap.

Name of swap: Holiday Gift List Round 12
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Your mailing address:
