Hi! My name is Barbara (a.k.a.-"Miss Barbara") and I live in Long Island, NY with my DH and three kids: 17 year old son, 9 year old daughter, and 7 year old daughter. We celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah in our house; DH and son also have birthdays around the holidays as well!
*We have SLIGHT allergies in our house. I can receive from someone who has pets as long as the pets are kept away from the craft and supplies. No partners who smoke or who have smokers in the house, please. Thanks!*
The gifts I have listed are going to my girls' numerous teachers (i.e.-regular school, Hebrew School, before and after school care), my co-workers, and some friends. NO COLOR PREFERENCE/NO STYLE PREFERENCE/NO THEME PREFERENCE for any of the items, unless otherwise specified. Have fun!
-Bath soaps, bath bombs, etc... (My children would like these as well! Son likes the scented ones, the girls would like the ones in fun shapes, please.)
-Non-religious ornaments (I'm thinking a general 'winter' theme would be great!)
-Simple tote bags
-Reusuable gift bags
-Gift tags(Thanks, kartiana!)(I can use a lot of these, so I'm going to leave it up.)
-Cards (Again, a general 'winter' theme would be great!)(Thanks, kartiana!)(I can use a lot of these, so I'm going to leave it up.)
-Any bracelet, necklace, pin, or ring you would like to create!
*If you have an idea for something you'd like to make, and it's not on the list, please PM me! I am looking for "generic" gifts that don't need to be personalized. Thanks!*

FOR MY BEST FRIEND:
-I just found out tonight that she had a stroke last Saturday, and will be spending some time in rehab. She's a young woman, only 38. I would very much appreciate anything that anyone would like to make her that she could enjoy while in rehab. Her favorite color is lime green. Her feet are always cold (she is only 4'11", so she has tiny feet). I've not had any experience with someone in rehab, so if you can think of something you think she could use, please PM me and we'll talk.
-Something 'Tetris' themed
-Something 'Beeker' themed (from 'The Muppet Show')
