I claim Brilor for something with a football theme for Sean. This is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received

My name is Laural and I live in Indiana.
My son's name is  and he will be 6 in December.
His favorite color is green. He likes Legos, Spongebob, Chowder, Misadventures of Flapjack and Tiny Planets. He is really tall (almost 4') and wears a size 6/7 pants and shirt. It depends on their length. He plays basketball and takes gymnastics.

He would really like:
A shirt (long sleeve or short) with something on them
Pajama pants
A handmade scarf
A handmade hat
A monster (any medium)
A Puzzle
A stuffie - this is a cool one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275577.0
A pillowcase with an outer space something on it
Wall art with an outerspace something going on for his room
A handmade calendar with big squares to fill things in
A game

A cape
Some handmade cotton washcloths
A surprise
A patch like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_19&listing_id=16640453 or this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16506404
A little drawstring pouch for his school snack so I can stop cleaning crumbles out of the bottom of his backpack. I would need to be about 5"x5" something like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_17&listing_id=15705611

Ok I think I killed it. I've added some stuff but if there's going to be another round I don't mind being the start of that one.

I claim Laural for a little drawstring pouch and a surprise.

This is my 4th claim, 3 sent, 3 received

I am a SAHM to 4 kiddos.  We have 3 girls and 1 boy, 8yrs, 5 yrs, 3 yrs &  1 yr old.  We live in KY and have a small amount of living space for all 6 of us.  The sisters all love "the Bubs" very much.  He probably needs the most stuff since we have so many girly things. 

for Bubs:  (He has a surfer/skateboarder style with cool hair to match.)

Some cool surfer/skateboarder style stenciled/silkscreened/appliqued t-shirts - size 12 mo.

12 mo tees stenciled/silkscreened with sayings "Bread Lovers Unite!" or "Yeah, Toast"  (yes, he's a bread man)

Cadet style hat

pj pants or sets (styled like Old Navy/Gap pants)  he is cloth diapered so he needs some extra room in the pants.  I love stripes in boyish colors.

He is very good with his hands and likes to manipulate things so we need some toys that are good for him to manipulate.

Wooden lock box toy like this: http://www.peapods.com/browse.cfm/4,667.htm

wooden freeform blocks like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat3_gallery_16&listing_id=15031092

Nuts & Bolts board like this (bottom of pg 36):
http://www.michaelolaf.com/08JC13toys.pdf

Sew cloth diapers (I have the fabric & pattern - I need your serger & sewing skills with elastic)

Homemade magnet puzzles like this - I love the classic story pictures:
http://www.chicaschmica.com/2008/09/homemade-puzzle-magnets/

Soft magnet board or something baby friendly for him to stick magnets on

gloves


For the girls:

Artwork to put in a frame (can be scrapbooked/drawn/painted etc.) with their name, name meaning & scripture (ask me for the descriptions)

Felt play food for their kitchen

Hand puppets for 3 yr old.  Somethat look realistic like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat3_gallery_5&listing_id=9739568

or some puppets like this - you have to click the name under the drawing to see the real pictures:
http://www.magiccabin.com/magiccabin/product.do?section_id=0&sc=1004&bc=1004&pgc=613&cmvalue=MCD|CROSSSELL|PRODUCT|707

knit slipper socks or booties for any or all of the girls

Knit or Crocheted headbands that grip for 5 yr old.  Her hair is so thin it falls out of anything we use to put it up.  Like the large cream one in this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232665.0

Poppet - one with brown and turquoise hair

Carved stamps - they love Pomeranians, horses, baby elephants (the 3 yr old said), etc.

Supplies:
wool felt & floss for 8 yr old to craft with

shrinky dink DIY kit for 8 yr old

I claim CJKJ for some cool surfer/skateboarder style/bread related t-shirts (size 12 mo) for Bubs.
This is my 4th claim, 2 sent, 2 received (the 3rd is almost ready to be sent, promise).

I am a SAHM (atm, however I am currently looking for a parttime job, bleh) of 1 darling little boy who is 3 years old.  We live in North Carolina, USA.

Quentin - 3 year old boy
Currently wears size 3T/4T in shirts and 2T in pants (he is tall and skinny/long torso, 38in.tall/30lbs), size 7.5 in toddler shoes.  If you need actual measurements let me know. 
Loves Thomas/trains, cars (ie-HotWheels), SuperWhy, Clifford, Lazytown, Dora/Diego, Blue's Clues, Mario Bros/MarioKart, RockBand, pirates, dinosaurs, space/rockets (and lots of other things, just ask, he probably likes it)  OMG, I can't believe I almost forgot Spiderman!
Also enjoys cheese (in many wonderous forms, from quesadilas to cubes), cookies, ice cream, chocolate milk and fruit snacks.  (I promise he doesn't just eat these things, they are just on the top of the list of things he wants when I ask him what he wants for whatever meal)
Also likes trying to ride his new tricycle, running in circles around the house, gymnastics class, and "playing" soccer.
Likes watching KC Chiefs football with his daddy and grandpa every Sunday (they all have matching jerseys, it's really quite adorable).  Also UNC Tarheel basketball is big in this house.  (He also has a KU-Jayhawks grandpa and an UGA-Bulldogs grandpa pulling him in their directions, haha).
He doesn't really have a favorite color (at least not one that he will tell me, he just starts naming all the colors he knows), sticking to boy appropriate colors would be best (so no pinks or purples).

---------------------------------------------------------

Play Food/Play Kitchen items - I (with the help of my woodworking older brother) am converting a set of old bedside tables into a play kitchen for Christmas... so I will be needing play kitchen and food items, I have a whole booklet that I printed out of crocheted foods but I haven't had a chance to get them started.  Crocheted/felt/etc... please no faces on the items, there's nothing weirder than pretending to eat foods that have cute/funny faces.

Awesome shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve) or hoodie - please no iron ons (they do not last in my wash and my kiddo picks at anything that he thinks is a sticker) - in any of his favorite things or check out the examples on his wist (link below, and yes I made my kid his own wist, haha)

Lounge pants/PJs in fabrics in his favorite things or some Christmas ones (I've even seen Thomas Christmas fabric!). 

Art for bedroom/bathroom (painting/embroidery/fabric/etc) - Bedroom is transportation themed, bathroom is monkeys/jungle.  (Here is a link to my flickr set with pictures of both rooms-the only thing that is different now other than furniture being moved around is the Thomas curtain on the window, it's posted on here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/amystagner/sets/72157603919027797/)

Transportation themed (or Thomas themed) Bedding... blanket/quilt/sheets/pillowcases (please no fleece blankets, he has like 5 of them now)... twin sized.

This is a biggie, but this thing is just too cool, so I thought why not, I can't seem to figure out how to make it... http://www.shopatron.com/product/product_id=BOO801/514.0

Knit socks!  I just love knit socks but I can't knit myself and crocheted socks aren't as nice looking.

I-Spy bag.  These things are so neat! --> Thanks, patty_o_furniture!

Sewing/crocheting patterns for infants/toddlers/boys/girls (we plan on having at least one more, it might be a little while, but I have been collecting patterns so I will be ready when we do)  --> Thanks superhooker!

Mario (as in the Nintendo Mario bros) amigurumi - snugglably sized.

A set of cute/fun magnets (he has one of those magnet/dryerase/chalkboard easels) to play with (puzzles, alphabets, cars/trains/planes, etc...)   --> Thanks superhooker!

Fabric in any of his favorite themes or other boyish prints (no baseball prints though please...) (cotton, fleece, flannel, any kind!)

------------------------------------------------------------

his wist - http://www.wists.com/Qstag  (there are examples of most of the things on the list on here)

I'll claim for some t shirts and maybe some extra jungle bits.
Childrens Ongoing wishlist

Hi, I’m sajona from the UK, I have 4 kids, no pets and a IT consultant DH. We live in chaos just north of London .
I haven’t given a specific list as I am happy for you to use your imagination – they love getting things in the post! The boys always seem to miss out on crafty goodies – so do pick them if you can ☺

2nd claim of 3
1 sent, 1 received


S aged 14 : Spends his entire waking hours on the computer if he possibly can do – or the Wii or XBOX360. He has grown up with Nintendo  - especially Mario – so anything with that theme would go down well. He hates sports and is quite happy being a geek ☺
He loves music too – especially Linkin Park.
Favourite programmes: Heroes and The Simpsons
Fave colours: blue and black
Fits size 15/16 – Mens size small.
Needs things to organize his desk/schoolwork
Maybe a pocket to attach to his bunk bed to keep his book and DS in when he goes to sleep.
(received - a mario stuffie!)

J  aged 12 – loves World War 2 tanks – and all military stuff – especially American and Japanese stuff.  His bedroom has this theme so any storage items, books, pictures that would work would be great.
Patterns: camoflage, WW11 planes and tanks, soldiers,
Loves drawing – especially cartoons and marvel comic style heroes.
Favourite programmes: The Simpsons and Futurama
He fits age 10 t shirts (he is small for his age)
Some hats/scarves would be useful (nothing scratchy – he is quite fussy LOL!)
Likes blue, green and red.
(received - a Dr Zoidberg stuffie  )

N aged 6  has ADHD and is a bit of a handful! He likes Doctor Who in a big way!! He seems to like the classic series as much as the current one. Particularly Daleks and Cybermen. Also likes Spiderman and The Fantastic Four. Enjoys crafts and drawing.
He fits 7/8 clothes.(128cm in euro/ottobre size)
He likes all colours.
He could also do with cold weather gear and storage items – plus drawing pads/colouring pens etc that are unusual.
(Received Dalek stuffie)

N aged 3 is a Disney Princess – she is totally mad for Little Mermaid, Snow White, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast etc etc. Loves dressing up and drawing. She starts ballet this term. – a ballet bag would be great or anything with ballerinas on it.
Fits 3-4 size clothes/98cm euro/ottobre. Loves pink, pink and more pink. Pretty typical for her age I suppose., She does like Hello Kitty too.  Her room is all pink and cream but not that cutesy. Could always use cooler weather clothes – I like her in miniboden (www.boden.co.uk)style clothes – slightly retro  and hardwearing/washable.
(Received outfit from Zelda.suicide and some Disney Princess goodies on their way )

Ok pumpkins, I'm shutting down round 3.  Superhooker is taking over round 4, which she said she would get up and running by tomorrow evening (starting these can take some time and she's going to be doing a little traveling)  You can send her the same questionnaire that is at the beginning of this swap if you want to get a jump on things.  I'm doing feedback now, but if your packages haven't been received you will not receive feedback until all of yours have been received.

Thanks for such a great round...this went very smoothly!
