I claim sweety28303 for a mug rug for her Aunt Ellise and some coasters.


This is my third claim.
(3/0/1)
(total claims made/claims in transit/claims received)

Hi all! I'm Mary Ann and live in Portland, OR, USA. I celebrate Christmas and have a couple of hard-to-give-to people on my list. I have 3 nephews and they are typical boys--they love dinosaurs, tv, video games, superheroes, pirates, and trucks.

Anything I didn't list that you think might be good for one of my loved ones is appreciated! I'll try to add some stuff to my Pinterest.

Mom--She's the hardest one for gifts!
*She does like Southwest stuff (cactus, Kokipelli, adobe houses, pots) and wall art is always a good bet.
*She's an office manager, so maybe something to help keep her desk organized or to pretty it up? Smaller is better probably. She likes the color orange and those babies in flowers (Anne Geddes?).
*We travel as much as we can, so anything travel related is cool (travel accessories, or just something travel-ish that sounds fun)
*Table runner for a medium/small oval table (I can measure). Holiday related or good for year round.
*New valance for our living room or dining room. The Living room window is extremely large, the dining room one is normal sized. I can measure. Currently our entire house is dark green (carpets, tile, valances, most former decorations). We are wanting to change some stuff up, so other colors would be good (although if it still complements green, since we won't be re-doing the carpet or tile anytime soon)
*Some kind of centerpiece for the dining room table, holiday or year round themed. I have a cute rectangle clear glass vase I like but nothing clever to put in it. I'm the housecleaner and if I kept the dining table pretty, possibly I would keep it less cluttered, which would make mom super happy.
*Something referencing her 3 grandsons...silhoue ttes of 3 boys or something?
--No allergies

Brother (Joel)--He's really difficult too. He likes camping and his new dirt bike.
*Something for camping or fishing? Fishing lures?
*A winter hat in dark/manly colors
--No allergies

I would prefer to get some gifts for someone else on my list since I have two for sil now. But if I can't get any claims for anybody else then please claim for her Cheesy
SIL (Sandora)--She's super girly and loves pink. She has 3 boys so she needs some girly stuff to surround herself with. She loves to color (in coloring books) and really appreciates those that are printed on nice paper. She loves coconut and pina colada anything and also toffee.
*Roll up cases (like for knitting needles) to hold her crayons, markers, and colored pencils. She has some large ones but some smaller ones for on the go would be good.
* Since her name is unusual, something with her name is fun! Sandora Thanks hautedogclothing!
*Anything red to decorate her kitchen (potholders, towels, dish clothswall art,) would be great.
*Reusable non-paper "paper towels"
*Any kind of wall art
*She's always cold, so a cuddly soft scarf, mittens, blanket, shawl would be great (Thank you Miss Barbara for scarf and arm warmers!)
*She loves Christmas decorations and could always use more ornaments, especially kinds that won't get destroyed with 3 boys and a new puppy.
*She likes to bake, so some kind of baking kit or cookie cutters or something like that.
*Anything a mom of 3 boys might like to pamper herself!
*She does like little cute things that sit on a shelf, she has two bookcases from Ikea and the upper shelves hold her breakable treasures. She likes fairies and other fun girly stuff.
--No allergies




Dad--He's getting old and he's not picky
*Picture frames are good, he's always wanting pictures of his kids/grandkids
*Anything for his house, he lives alone in a small apartment without much. Mugs or something?
*Reusable bags that are strong, he rides the bus and is always needing more bags to carry groceries, etc. A really plain or manly fabric would be good.
*If you make jam or anything edible he'll love it
*A winter hat (or two) would be good. He loses stuff so don't spend too much time on it! Grin
*Maybe a Bible cover? It doesn't matter what size, he probably has a Bible to fit it, or if he doesn't one of his favorite things is buying "new" ones at thrift shops. If it had a holder for his glasses that would be awesome.
--No allergies

Boyfriend (Matt)--He's a computer nerd and really into board games (we both are, but the good ones, European mostly).
*T-shirt (size L or XL if it runs small) with a fun quote relating to tv shows he likes, Starcraft, or board games that we play. I can supply some board game quotes.
*Something embroidered/quilted/whatever to hang on the wall featuring the Terran symbol from the game Starcraft/Starcraft 2.
*His apartment is pretty stark, so anything nerdy to decorate it is good (wall art, pillowcases for regular sized pillows). Any quote from Futurama or Arrested Development works.
*He loves hot sauce and does cook, so spices or anything like that works. He likes tea. A decorated mug would be nice.
*A winter hat. I made him one last year that he loved but he lost it. So don't put too much time into it Grin
--No allergies

Best Friend (Erin--She's a runner and also is cold a lot of the time. She loves blues and purples in the lavender/periwinkle range, as well as deep jewel blues and purples.)
*Purple/blue scarf. She doesn't wear hats.
*I'm making her a lap quilt (purples and blues), so a throw pillow (even just the cover) to go with it would be fun!
--No allergies

Good friend's first baby (Joshua)--He just turned 5 months and it would be fun to have some Christmas stuff for him. He's chunky, so I imagine by Christmas 12 mo clothes would be good.

Boyfriend's parents (Joan and Lewis...actually not sure how he spells that)--they are older but pretty active. Joan has a fun little garden and is really sweet. She is diabetic, so sugar free stuff is good. Lewis likes card games. They are pretty "green"
*Teas, spices, hot sauce, anything kitchen-y like that.
*Their house is pretty full/cluttered, so something more useful than decorative would be good.


Boyfriend's Nephews and Niece--he has two nephews (9 and 2) and once niece (7)
*Small things that kids might like. Educational would probably be good, their parents are really into organic/natural stuff.
*They like games


My Nephews (Dane, 7 1/2, Aidan 6, Tristan 3 1/2)
*They love superheroes, especially Spiderman, Batman, and the Incredible Hulk (or as they call him "Hulk Smash")
*They adore anything they can hang on their walls, so posters, artwork, etc. If you ever find any little pull out posters in magazines or little ones they give away at movie theaters those are great to throw in!
*Organizational things, like belts they can hang toys on, or containers to put their cars, toys, small treasures in
*Dress up stuff, especially capes/belts/hats and superhero, ninja, or pirate wear.
*Winter hats/scarves/mittens in boyish colors. Blue is always a winner.
*They love clothes. They fit into pretty standard size clothing for their ages, except Dane is tall and thin for his age (pants are always too short and fall down on him) and Tristan is tall for his age. T-shirts would be fabulous, Sevsonlygirl made some for them several years ago and the little guy is still wearing them all.
*For some reason they love headbands (like sweat bands). I think they think they are karate masters or something when they wear them. Decorated ones would probably put them over the top.
*Decorated, standard size pillow cases would be wonderful, they would love those!
Dane--He's the video game prince, he loves Sonic and Mario
Aidan--He's my crafty boy, loves notepads, activity pads, games, but most especially puzzles. He'll sit and do the same puzzle over and over for hours
Tristan--He still likes cuddly things, but he's always trying to keep up with the big boys. He really likes Ponyo and some awful Dragon show that I'm trying to remember the name to. Dragon Tales? New things are great for him because he gets so many-hand me-downs.


Nephews' new puppy (Lola)
* Puppy treats or toys!
* A blanket just for her

I claim sweety28303 for dish towels for her middle sister and some burp cloths for Mason!

3/2/1


Hi!  I'm Kaz and I live with my two bunnies in a teensy tiny condo in Maryland, USA. I'm a teacher in a middle school, and I love it.  I love most any color (see my profile for the colors of my house), though I'm not really a fan of paisley, neons, baby pastels, or animal print.  I love polka dots, stripes, fun patterns, bright colors, and "comfy" things.  I love puns, good grammar, penguins, rabbits, doors and windows, autumn and reading. I have no allergies.  I'm single, an only child, and my dad passed away four years ago this coming November, so it's me and my mom - which is why my list for potential things for my mom is so long.  She's my best friend, really, and since I'm an adult now, I can spoil her as she deserves!

I'm trying to keep store-bought gifts to a minimum again this year, so thanks for helping me out!  I tell myself that it makes Christmas cost less ... and so long as I don't go near a Joann's, it probably does. Wink   OH, and I know that some of my items aren't quite a medium, but I would think the smaller things - notecards, etc. - would be something that could be a set?   Cheesy


For Mom
My mom is a fabulous woman, who is a preschool teacher and adores her dog.  (Seriously, the dog gets her own suitcase when we go on trips.)  She likes lighthouses and collects Santas.  Things to help her organize would be LOVE (mostly by me!) and she has a dream of opening her own baking business.  She is the best baker I know.  She loves the blue/yellow combination (think Vera Bradley-esque prints).  Her dog is named Prairie and is something like a Schipperke mix.  (She has no allergies, but she does dislike birds, so please nothing with birds.)

-recipes for baked goods
-earrings/necklace set for my mom (she loves garnets and turquoise, not necessarily together, though! She can do more delicate jewelry and doesn't like chunky stuff really.  She prefers silver to gold.)
-a learn to make jewelry craft kit for my mom
-a dog bed for Prairie (she's a medium sized/30 pound dog - I can provide a pic if necessary)
-mugrug
-notebook like THIS for mom (she actually pointed out that she liked it!)
-rice heat/cool pack
-<s>knit/crocheted dishcloths for mom - she prefers ones that are square and are probably 6x6.</s> Thank you TroubleT and craftaddiction!
-swiffer sweeper and swiffer duster reusable crocheted/sewn covers for mom
-notecards w/ envelopes
-oven mitts/hot pads for the kitchen


For The Relatives

I'm looking for some things for my mom's relatives, too - mostly my grandparents, uncle and his wife.  My grandmother loves maroon and Manhattans (the drink), hates birds, the color green and water.  My grandfather has a gigantic sweet tooth and likes martinis.  My uncle and his wife are very awesome people, and I couldn't tell you what their favorite colors are.  Best go for a generic 'manly' print for my uncle and something fun and classic for my uncle's wife. They all love the Boston Red Sox and no allergies for any of them.

-earrings, necklace, or bracelet for my uncle's wife (she's rather tall, so something a bit chunky or daring is probably best for her so it doesn't get too lost!)
-mug rugs for uncle (he likes firetrucks, dark green/manly colors, and America), or grandparents
-wool dryer balls for grandma
-homemade preserves for grandparents



For The Kids
I've also got several small children to make gifts for this year - a 3 year old niece, a 4 year old boy, a 1.5 year old boy, a one year old boy, and a 9 month old girl.  They have no allergies of which I'm aware.

These are all just ideas!  If you have something you think they'd love, just let me know.  I'm very open to other ideas. Cheesy

-hooded towels (for a 3 year old girl who loves purple, ducks, and sheep and/or a 4 year old boy who is very much a little boy and loves firemen/policemen/cars) (Examples: example 1, example 2)
-car "garage" for the 4 year old boy for his Matchbox cars (like this or this - no need to get so detailed with the paint or anything on the first one, though)
-baby blanket (for the girl infant)
-decorated t-shirts for one year old boy (size 1-2), 4 year old boy
-library bag for any of these children
-stuffy/amigurumi of some kind for a one year boy
-<s>soft blocks or something car-like for the one year old boy</s> Thank you so much, craftaddiction!
-crayon roll/crayon tote for 3 year old niece (who loves purple, ducks, and sheep and whose birthday is on Christmas itself!)
-felt food for the 3 year old niece
-apron for 3 year old niece (with her name would be awesome - PM for the name, as it's a very unique name and I think she might like having something with her name!)



For Co-Workers, Friends, Etc.
-mug rugs
-mug cozies
-_____ in a Mug (like this or this
-ornament coasters like these for my friend, L, who adores Christmas and all Christmas decorations



For Me to Use for Others

-Christmas cards w/ envelopes (for me or mom)
-Christmas and birthday tags
-reusable cloth gift bags
-handmade gift bows (out of newspaper, magazines, film ... ideas are endless)



For Me

-soup recipes - I'm addicted


Thank you in advance for claiming me and helping me with my Christmas list! Cheesy

Maybe something like math humor or  caffeine molecule or geeky beer humor A MAJOR HINT was given to me this past weekend when he saw the paper airplane hoop (super easy stitching!) that I made for the Ongoing Hoopla. He loved it! PM me if you are interested in doing this one because I have a cool idea that I would never be able to pull off myself because he can be super nosey. Hehehe...

~a remote control organizer for his recliner (Its a medium brown with darker brown flecks) Like this but without the magazine pocket - http://cgi.ebay.com/Fabric-Chair-Tv-Remote-Control-Holder-Organizer-Caddy-/200407666078  maybe done in a forest green or black

~Lego Indiana Jones or Star Wars wall art for his room (walls are sky blue) Painted or papercraft pieced Thank you cinnamon teal!

~ A figurine or stuffy of a Greek mythological beast for his Holiday Book Box - He loved the Hydra and the Minotaur in the first PJ movie.  

~Bookmarks! He loves his books and wont dog ear pages (YAY!) so hed like some handmade book marks, especially if it had his name on it.

Thank you Miss Barbara! Cheesy

~a princess plushie - I do a holiday themed book box every year and she is really into all things Princessy so her theme will be just that. Smiley

~Girlie Bubble bath! Light floral or fruit scent, maybe a spa kit appropriate for a little girl

~any appropriately girlie small hoopla (6" or smaller) for her hoopla wall - She already has a bunny, Pooh bear, her name and a butterfly.

My Mom - Sorry no likes, hobbies, or interesting facts for this one. No Allergies

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!

PAPERCRAFT:
-Bookmarks
-Journals
-Gift tags(Thanks, kartiana!)(I can use a lot of these, so I'm going to leave it up.)

JEWELRY:
-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')
-Something 'daffodil' themed

-Some type of fancy/cool/nifty covered tape measure.  (As I mentioned before, she is a terrific seamstress, she likes to cook, work with children, etc...)
-A thread catcher thingy (Again, in some shade of green, please.)
