I am going to claim sweetyetevil for sewn potholders.
1 claim, 0 received, 0 sent

I'm Jessica, and I live in Ontario, Canada with my BBW brown tabby (BBBT?), Puddin' Pie (or Puddy for short).  I love planning gifts, gift making, and gift shopping. . . but I don't have a much of a list of people to buy for! So I'd love to prepare some really great gifts for the people I do have, and I've joined this swap to help do just that, since they all appreciate handmade things (well, except maybe my grandpa. But even he appreciates handmade edibles!).

The List

Jewellery Etc
- sparkly necklaces and/or bracelets for Mom
- sparkly or beady headbands/head things for my sister [note she has super-short hair)
- stud earrings for my sister (sparkle works here too, nothing plastic-looking here please maybe metal-looking, or wood, or something else that isnt plastic. Shaped like natural things/animals/etc are neat!)

Knit/Crochet
- cozy accessory (scarf, other type of neckwarmer-type-thing, mitts, sweater, some sort of clothing piece) for my sister *beige/off-whites/browns/greys are best

Bath & Body
- pretty looking & smelling (floral, vanilla) soaps/lotions/bath stuff for Mom
- manly soap (not beer flavoured) for Dad

Foodie
- spices/rubs/recipes/oils/etc for my sister
- tasty sweet things (e.g. dessert in a jar, fancy jams as long as it would last until Christmas) for Mom
- food prep in a jar (meal from a jar type thing) for Grandpa

Other?
- Does someone on my list inspire you to make something else? Let me know!

The People

MOM Mid 50s, lives in a townhouse with my sister. Teaches ESL to adults and really loves it.
Likes: sparkle, nice smelling things, The Shopping Channel, books/groups about separation/divorce, leopard print & glossy red in housewares (not clothing!), riding on backs of motorcycles, tea (with goodies)
Dislikes: non-pretty things, cooking, cleaning

SISTER 21, lives with mom. Graphic designer (starts a new job at a loose tea company on Tuesday!)
Likes: thrifty fashion (ultra-layered, 1920s & other vintage, gypsy-esque, cozy pieces), cooking, planning future businesses (branding studio? crepe truck?), reading (especially Agatha Christie), movies, her tuxedo cat Patches, tea
Dislikes: cake, bookmarks, bright colours

DAD 60 (but youd never guess), lives in the middle of nowhere on his own (and it works for him)
Likes: motorcycles (cruisers, not sport bikes), cooking, wood carving, the outdoors, reading (especially sci-fi & Westerns), fly fishing, lakes & oceans, red wine, good Scotch, travelling
Dislikes: beer, sports, cities

GRANDPA 80s, German, lives independently on his own
Likes: walking in the mall, Readers Digest, yelling at CNN, visiting the Germania Club,
Dislikes: a lot of things, getting presents (we usually go gift card or edible), cooking (well, more that he can't really cook except for turkey soup, pork hawks, and sauerkraut)

I’d love to get a collar or neckerchief for boonze with his name on it

Quenton –  Quenton has just started highschool and is 14.  He has now joined the football and rugby teams but he really likes soccer the most.  He likes playing xbox and loves his blackberry!
Xbox pillow

Hello, Im Reinikka from Southern California. Im really excited to start collecting handmade gifts for my friends and family! Please include your business tag and/or business card with anything you make (even a tag that says Handcrafted by: Your Name would be nice). You dont have to worry about allergies, but I would appreciate no smoke/dirty smells on anything.

Sewn / Embroidery Items
~ Tea wallet ~ for my mom ~ She likes burgundy and purple, blue would also work but she would probably be happy with any color/pattern, just stay away from childish prints and bright pink ~ No allergies
~ Coffee mug cozy ~ for my grandma ~ The kind that goes around a coffee mug and through the handle, a few yarn examples on this pin board but I imagine these could also be sewn ~ No allergies

~ Apron to be used as painting smock ~ for my crafty friend ~ She loves anything Disney (especially Stitch), dancing (country line dancing, belly dancing, Hawaiian, and she just started learning tap), theatre and theatre tech, peace signs, and the Ohm symbol She is not a girly girl, so no pink please. She likes purple, blue, and green. ~ No allergies
~ Reusable produce bags ~ for my mom ~ any color (as long as you can see whats inside) and a variety of sizes would be great ~ No allergies

*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 recently found out that she had a stroke, 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   Her favorite color is lime green.  Her feet are always cold (she is only 4'11", so she has tiny feet).

-Something 'Beeker' themed (from 'The Muppet Show')
-Something 'daffodil' themed

FOR MY OTHER BEST FRIEND:
-Jewelry of any kind that has purple in it
-Something for her to store her jewelry in that has purple in it (She is such a giving and thoughtful person; she deserves something special.)

I like this style or anything similar: http://www.etsy.com/listing/69882238/slouchy-beret-denim-blue?ref=sr_gallery_35&ga_search_submit=&ga_search_query=slouchy+beret&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade

I will claim sweetyetevil for a needle book.
(I'm already sending her a package so I might as well add to it!)

2 claims, 0 received, 0 sent

I'm Jessica, and I live in Ontario, Canada with my BBW brown tabby (BBBT?), Puddin' Pie (or Puddy for short).  I love planning gifts, gift making, and gift shopping. . . but I don't have a much of a list of people to buy for! So I'd love to prepare some really great gifts for the people I do have, and I've joined this swap to help do just that, since they all appreciate handmade things (well, except maybe my grandpa. But even he appreciates handmade edibles!).

The List

Jewellery Etc
- sparkly necklaces and/or bracelets for Mom
- sparkly or beady headbands/head things for my sister [note she has super-short hair)
- stud earrings for my sister (sparkle works here too, nothing plastic-looking here please maybe metal-looking, or wood, or something else that isnt plastic. Shaped like natural things/animals/etc are neat!)

Knit/Crochet
 - cozy accessory (scarf, other type of neckwarmer-type-thing, mitts, sweater, some sort of clothing piece) for my sister *beige/off-whites/browns/greys are best - Thanks mama24boyz!

Bath & Body
- pretty looking & smelling (floral, vanilla) soaps/lotions/bath stuff for Mom
- manly soap (not beer flavoured) for Dad

Foodie
- spices/rubs/recipes/oils/etc for my sister
- tasty sweet things (e.g. dessert in a jar, fancy jams as long as it would last until Christmas) for Mom
- food prep in a jar (meal from a jar type thing) for Grandpa

Other?
- Does someone on my list inspire you to make something else? Let me know!

The People

MOM Mid 50s, lives in a townhouse with my sister. Teaches ESL to adults and really loves it.
Likes: sparkle, nice smelling things, The Shopping Channel, books/groups about separation/divorce, leopard print & glossy red in housewares (not clothing!), riding on backs of motorcycles, tea (with goodies)
Dislikes: non-pretty things, cooking, cleaning

SISTER 21, lives with mom. Graphic designer (starts a new job at a loose tea company on Tuesday!)
Likes: thrifty fashion (ultra-layered, 1920s & other vintage, gypsy-esque, cozy pieces), cooking, planning future businesses (branding studio? crepe truck?), reading (especially Agatha Christie), movies, her tuxedo cat Patches, tea
Dislikes: cake, bookmarks, bright colours

DAD 60 (but youd never guess), lives in the middle of nowhere on his own (and it works for him)
Likes: motorcycles (cruisers, not sport bikes), cooking, wood carving, the outdoors, reading (especially sci-fi & Westerns), fly fishing, lakes & oceans, red wine, good Scotch, travelling
Dislikes: beer, sports, cities

GRANDPA 80s, German, lives independently on his own
Likes: walking in the mall, Readers Digest, yelling at CNN, visiting the Germania Club,
Dislikes: a lot of things, getting presents (we usually go gift card or edible), cooking (well, more that he can't really cook except for turkey soup, pork hawks, and sauerkraut)

I claim klg_jlg for a hat for her husband.

Send by 10/25
(3,0,0)

Outstanding claims
kaz814: gifts for her coworkers
tapestrymlp: gift for her mom and a surprise
klg_jlg: crocheted hat


I'm TroubleT! I live in the Atlanta, GA area with my wonderful husband and 2 kidlets. I'm a high school Spanish teacher (of 21 yrs....EEP!) and love my job! We do not have any major allergies in the house other than my honey allergy so don't send me any granola or pour it over my package please. Wink


General dcor and paper items


~holiday bunting w/ Christmas trees, snowflakes, ornaments, whatever as long as it's not religious - I have one normal size door that leads out of the living room to the kitchen, one wide doorway (think a door and a half in size) leading to the dining room, both of which have no doors and they need to be jazzed up!

~Holiday greeting cards Non religious please! Preferably humorous

~Handmade ornaments - We love silly, quirky ornaments!! Thank you cinnamon teal! ...more of these would be wonderful though! Cheesy

~Gift tags done in white, red or green. Simple is preferable. Thank you cinnamon teal!

~Snowmen stuffies! I decorate our house with these and I add a new one or two to my collection every year! A handmade one would be super special. Cheesy

Husband - Computer programmer by day, awesome husband by night. He loves Fierros, cooking on the grill (think Texas style BBQ), and his dog Malia. No Allergies

~More artwork for his office Hes a computer programmer and is not at all into Fanfic or Gaming. He already has CTRL-ALT-DLT, Binary Man (done in X stitch) and STFU. Both worked in hoops and framed. 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... Thank you msmelissa!

~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
I found the time and inspiration to make this one myself!  Grin

Son - 10 yrs old, very creative, loves to draw, heavy reader Cheesy, loves Lego video games. No Allergies

~a decorated box for his art supplies - outer space, legos or Star Wars themed - I'm getting him some really nice colored pencils and maybe a set of pastels this year. Smiley

~a magnetic board (cookie sheet style or something similar) in an Outer Space theme appropriate for a 10 yr old boy (no cutesy aliens please!) maybe made with glow in the dark paint?

~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.

~sweater mittens in either a medium blue or red (I can send you a tracing of his hand for this!)

Daughter - 5 yrs old going on DIVA!, loves all things pink, sparkly and princessy. No Allergies

~sweater mittens in either pink or purple (Hand tracing can be provided!)

~a scoodie in either pink or purple, crocheted or sewn
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. Thank you msmelissa!...but there's no end to her hoopla wall so more is not a bad thing. Wink

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

~pieced pillow covers OR a lapghan since she was a bit jealous of dad's blanket last year

~simple, elegant earrings (Fish Hook please, no posts!) - she loves reds, blues, silver and black


My Dad A proud veteran of the Korean war and very actively volunteers with the VA in helping vets get the medical care/funds that they deserve. No Allergies

~ a framed art piece (any medium as long as the design is clean, not cluttered) of a Purple Heart (He received 2 during his years of service.) OR  an appropriate Veterans Day saying like REMEMBER with an American flag. Sayings can be found at http://www.quotegarden.com/veterans-day.html

~a jar of preserves He eats buttered toast with jelly or preserves every morning at breakfast. His favorites are apple butter and peach preserves.

ME! - Check out my profile and "So You Want to Swap?" page on my blog for TONS of info on me. Cheesy I AM VERY ALLERGIC TO HONEY!

~sleep shirts - knee length in a size large, I'd prefer either cotton or flannel, a basic pattern with some sort of sleeve is perfect for me. (Please no cap sleeves. I look horrible in those.)

~a memory board to hang over my craft table to help me keep up with important papers and crafty notes, preferably in "nature" colors like browns, forest green and cream.


Misc. Gifts


~Small Teacher gifts My kids have a total of 5 teachers when you include their after school program.  Were fortunate this year in that they are all totally awesome! Im totally OK with them all being the same.

~Small gifts for our 3 karate instructors. My kids and I all take karate and our instructors have the patience of Jobe. Wink

For my kitteh furchild

~A Kitty Pi!
