I claim Casey1201 for a hoopla surprise from her Pinterest & a button bracelet for her mommom.

NEW ITEMS ADDED!

(1,0,0)

Hi! I'm Jenn and I'm 35, a programmer, mom to two health-challenged kiddos, married to my high school sweetheart and a complete craft & swap addict. Books are my number one passion in life followed closely by Harry Potter. We live in the Dallas, Texas, area.

Allergy Info
My daughter has Cystic Fibrosis and Immune Deficiency so we can't accept crafts from anyone with a CFer in their household. Also, If someone in the household has been sick within the two weeks prior to when my swap item is to be sent I respectfully request that the sender wait until two weeks after everyone is well before sending the item out. I can't accept any crafts from smoking households or that have been exposed to smoke due to my daughter's lung issues. I know all that sounds scary, but we've never had an issue with a swap and I've participated in a ton. Please don't be afraid to claim me!

Thank you so, so much in advance for whoever claims me!

My Mom
my mom loves dragons and unicorns. She's got quite a collection of art and figures for both, though the dragons seem to out-number everything else. She loves blues and soft greens and really hates reds, oranges and most yellows. She only likes sweet looking dragons, not the fierce, scary kind. Think Pocket Dragons.
~ a unicorn polymer clay figure similar to this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/27554740/ooak-hand-sculpted-polymer-clay-art-doll
~ Unicorn, dragon or pegasus wall art or an embroidered hoop. Here's an example of something she'd go nuts over: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65760220/desert-unicorn-aceoish-original

~ Unicorn, pegasus, dolphin, baby dragon themed magnets
~ A freezer stencil or fabric painted t-shirt with a unicorn, pegasus, dolphin, otter or dragon

My daughter
Cassidy is one part girly girl and one part tom boy. She's addicted to her favorite tv programs: My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, Winx Club and Monster High. She loves books as much as mommy and favorites include the Percy Jackson series, Harry Potter, and the Erec Rex Series. Her favorite toys are her Monster High dolls, My Little Ponies and her American Girl dolls. Cassidy's favorite colors are hot pink and purple. She loves glitter and bling. She HATES buttons and has an odd phobia about them. Anything with buttons on it will send her screaming in the other direction.

~ Feather hair accessories in bright colors
~ A cute trinket box to organize her nail polish and lip gloss, perhaps decorated with one of the book or comic series she's interested in

~An easy friendship bracelet kit with a sample bracelet & instructions. Glitter and bling a must. Needs to be something a 5-year-old could do (Cass's craft skills aren't quite up to her age level)
~ A pinterest surprise http://www.pinterest.com/tapestrymlp (only the boards labeled "Cassidy")
~ A Monster High inspired ornament

My son
Joshua will be 2 this Christmas. He loves picture books but especially Mo Willem's Pigeon Series, Skippy Jon Jones and Llama Llama Red Pajama. He also loves friendly looking monsters and cars. He likes bright colors and designs.

~ A llama llama red pajama inspired Christmas ornament

My Best Friend
Kim has a 2-year-old and is currently a stay-at-home-mom and former veterinarian. She works part-time on a ranch with her husband and the two are heavily involved in polo and horsemanship.

~Gamer backpack, just something to hold his game notebooks & clip board and a special pouch for his dice. Decorated with something Star Wars or RPG related. His current game is something to do with pirates.

For me
I love Kitsune, books & reading, writing, Harry Potter, Doctor Who (the 10th Doctor is my favorite), Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Salyer. My style is whimsical but not super cutesy and I like almost all colors except orange. Other than my family, books & writing are the most important things in my life.
~ A small computer bag decorated with any of my interests, should be well padded. It's for an 11" Macbook Air and I'd love for it to have one small interior pocket in addition to the main pocket if possible.

I claim 1watermonkey for an Amumu figure for her fiance.

(2,0,0)

Hi! I'm Jenn and I'm 35, a programmer, mom to two health-challenged kiddos, married to my high school sweetheart and a complete craft & swap addict. Books are my number one passion in life followed closely by Harry Potter. We live in the Dallas, Texas, area.

Allergy Info
My daughter has Cystic Fibrosis and Immune Deficiency so we can't accept crafts from anyone with a CFer in their household. Also, If someone in the household has been sick within the two weeks prior to when my swap item is to be sent I respectfully request that the sender wait until two weeks after everyone is well before sending the item out. I can't accept any crafts from smoking households or that have been exposed to smoke due to my daughter's lung issues. I know all that sounds scary, but we've never had an issue with a swap and I've participated in a ton. Please don't be afraid to claim me!

Thank you so, so much in advance for whoever claims me!

My Mom
my mom loves dragons and unicorns. She's got quite a collection of art and figures for both, though the dragons seem to out-number everything else. She loves blues and soft greens and really hates reds, oranges and most yellows. She only likes sweet looking dragons, not the fierce, scary kind. Think Pocket Dragons.
~ a unicorn polymer clay figure similar to this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/27554740/ooak-hand-sculpted-polymer-clay-art-doll

She loves books as much as mommy and favorites include the Percy Jackson series, Harry Potter, and the Erec Rex Series. Her favorite toys are her Monster High dolls, My Little Ponies and her American Girl dolls. Cassidy's favorite colors are hot pink and purple. She loves glitter and bling.

I claim 1watermonkey for a stenciled t-shirt for her fiance.

(2,1,1)

Hello everyone! I am T, a mother of 2 great kids and the wife of an awesome husband. I live near Atlanta, GA. I'm a high school teacher of 21 years who still loves her job. My entire family LOVES Christmas and we all enjoy handmade gifts so I just know that what you create will be wonderful! Smiley

I have a holiday gifts board on my Pinterest. Go check it out if you don't see something here.

BIG WISHES are in RED! Cheesy

General dcor and paper items

~Holiday greeting cards Non religious please! Preferably humorous  - I really like this one but I'm open to other cute designs. Smiley I have a set from kaz, but more would be helpful. Same design or different, doesn't matter
~Handmade ornaments - We love silly, quirky ornaments.
Button ball ornament - http://pinterest.com/pin/266345765433318065/ (only with the buttons glued down, my cat would have too much fun otherwise!)
Elfs - http://pinterest.com/pin/261208847107976425/

http://pinterest.com/pin/177470041536670059/ - In white please!
~Holiday coasters - preferably sewn, knitted, or crocheted (ceramic + kids AND pets = not good!), traditional holiday colors, or snowflake patterned fabric would be fabulous! Our hot cocoa mugs are on the large size so at least 4" square/round please. Smiley
~Cocoa on a stick for when we watch Rudolph yet again!
Thank you kittykill!

Husband - Computer programmer by day, Awesome Husband by night! He's into Fieros, grilling and electronics.
~home made dry rubs or herbal marinades for meats (please include a basic ingredients list, no need to give away the actual recipe if its a family secret!)
~dried chile peppers if you raise them! We love spicy foods!
~UTexas Longhorns wall art - framed embroidery (not a hoop!) or painted
~A manly apron with the saying "Everything is bigger in Texas." This could be painted, stenciled, machine embroidered, appliqued in manly colors...

Son - 11 yrs old, very creative, loves to draw, heavy reader Cheesy, loves Lego video games. No Allergies
~sweater mittens in either a medium blue or red (I can send you a tracing of his hand for this!)
~ a stenciled tee in a theme of Star Wars (Lego or Classic), Angry Birds or mythological creatures like a hydra (even cartoony would be great!)
~fleece or flannel pajama pants boys size 16 - He loves soft fabrics like fleece or flannel!
~a cool cover for his Kindle e-reader
~sewn house slippers in a mens size 7.5
~boy's jewelry - He has a shark's tooth on a leather cord that he loves. Something basic but manly

Daughter - 6 yrs old and soon to be DIVA!, loves all things pink/purple, sparkly and girly. No Allergies
~sweater mittens in either pink or purple (Hand tracing can be provided)
~any appropriately girlie small hoopla (6" or smaller) for her hoopla wall - She already has a bunny, Pooh bear, her name and a butterfly.

~fleece or flannel pajama pants, girls size 7
~crocheted/sewn house slippers in a childs size 13
~a girly zipper pouch for carrying her hair bows, etc. in her book bag
~necklaces! She loves to dress up so a long length necklace would be fabulous. Sorry, she doesn't have pierced ears yet.
~NEW!! - How to Sew kit - she has one that has a design drawn on plastic canvas that came with a blunt needle and yarn. SHE LOVES IT! I know she would enjoy another.
~NEW! - A mermaid stuffie or amigurumi - I do a holiday book box for each of my kids every year and it always has some sort of theme. I've decided that Mermaid will be her theme this year. Cheesy

My Mom - Sorry no likes, hobbies, or interesting facts for this one. No Allergies
~pieced pillow covers in brick red and cream - I will gladly stuff the pillows myself! I just am not that good at piece work yet. Smiley
~a set of hanging towels in creams and browns
~a sewn eyeglass case

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, strawberry or peach preserves.


Misc. Gifts

~Small gifts for our 3 martial arts instructors (This an extra special holiday because I'm...hopefully...getting my black belt just before the Holidays! Grin). My kids and I all take karate and our instructors have the patience of Jobe. Wink  - Maybe one of those sewn neck coolers that ties in front, reusable, rice filled heat packs for sore muscles
~jars of jelly or preserves for general gifting

For ME! Cheesy
~A repurposed apron like this one! only not in a plaid, I'd prefer either a darker blue or green, or a denim shirt. This is one of those things that I really want but can't get the time to make for myself.
~NEW! - a set of sewn trash bags to hang over my front seats so that my kids won't trash my back seat. *sigh*
~a crafty surprise snow ball! Nothing huge, just fun yet useful crafty items. I promise I will not unroll it until December 25th! Honest!

For my kitteh furchild
~A Kitty Pi! Sewn, knitted, crochetedwhatever, shell love it!
