Welcome to the Ongoing Holiday Gift List Swap! Round 6


We know it's early, but it's never too soon to start thinking of holiday gifts!  This the place to help your fellow Craftster narrow down their holiday gift lists.  This swap welcomes every winter holiday including Christmas, Hanukah/Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, etc.  If you want a handmade holiday for your friends and family, this is the place to get help on your list.  From grandma to your own kids, your lists can include almost anyone in your life that you might need a little help crafting for - even yourself!.   Please read through this initial post carefully before joining and PM me with any questions.

How it works:

This swap will work in an ongoing format.  The first person in the swap will post a list of handmade items that they would like.  The participants then look through the list and if they can fulfill that particular wish, they claim that person for that item and post their own list for the next person to claim them.  This works like a chain.  Person A is claimed by Person B, Person B is claimed by Person C, etc.  You must claim to be claimed and only one person can claim another at a time. 

Each FOC can have up to 3 outstanding claims at a time.  A non-FOC craftster gets two claims at a time.  A new swapper can have 1 claim at a time.  Once one of your claim is received and the organizer is notified, you may claim again. 

What is on the list:

Each participant can post as many size medium requests as they would like in their list.  Please try to post a minimum of 10 items you would like so there is a variety and a better chance of not stalling the swap.  You may post larges or smalls as well, but please realize that to fulfill the swap requirements, you are only required to claim and send a medium.  This swap will be for handmade items only.  Organizing your list by crafting medium is a good idea to help other participants find something on your list that they are good at, but is not required.  Please note that because these are holiday wishes we are filling, items should be your absolute best quality. 

How to make your list:

Please format your list to have an introduction that lets us know a little more about you, such as your name, your general location, etc.  Please format your wishes so that each participant has a clear idea as to what you are looking for.  Posting links is highly advisable.  It is also a great idea to provide participants with as much relevant information on the gift recipient as possible.  Here is my suggested way for formatting each wish:

<item> <recipient> <preferences> <link>
<allergies>

Example: 
Doll dress for my daughter.  She prefers pink floral fabric with a velcro or button closure.  Here is one she likes http://URL GOES HERE
Allergies:  Smoke

Including allergies right underneath of each wish keeps the allergies in focus.  This is such an important part to consider when claiming someone.  If you format your wishes like this, they will be clear and you are more likely to be claimed quickly.

Making a claim:

Once you make a claim, you must PM the participant that you are claiming for their address and to discuss the item you have claimed to make for them.  Once you make a claim, you are committed to making that item.  Remember, you only have two weeks to complete the item and ship it.  If you choose to send extras, they do not contribute to the size of the claim.  A medium is technically either between 2-3 hours in time, or $20-$30 in supplies/value.  To claim the person who is currently available, respond to their post with I claim <username> for <item claimed for>.  For example, if I were to claim myself to make socks, I would write, I claim kaz814 for a hoopla.  Within that same response, you then post your own list so someone can claim you. 

   
Send Outs:

Just like other ongoing swaps, you will have two weeks from the date of your claim to send out your item.  There are no exceptions.  DC#s will be absolutely required.  If you do not provide a DC#, it will be noted in your feedback.  If you do not provide a DC# and your package gets lost, you will be required to resend.  You must PM the organizers with the DC#/customs# when you send!

Qualifications to Join:

Anyone is free to join under standard Craftster Swap Guidelines.  Due to the time constraints on claims, I reserve the right to deny any Craftster that has a history of lateness.

Receiving packages:

Please PM me as soon as you receive each package.  This is so I can keep track of claims.  Pictures in the gallery are also appreciated.  Some of your fulfilled wishes might inspire other wishes for other participants.

Other important info:

You do not have to message me when you claim a person.  You only have to message them for their address.  Please PM me however when you send your questionnaire, when you send your claim, and when you receive a claim with the title: OHLS 5: questionnaire, OHLS 5: sent!, etc.  Also, Please PM me with any questions you have.

Please do not claim a person until you have been approved for this swap and it is listed in your profile!  Please do not claim a person once one of your claims has been received until the person receiving from you verifies your package arrived and is exactly what you claimed them for. (Unless you have open claim spots, of course!)

Sometimes, a person's list will stall the swap.  When your list has been up for more than 18-24 hours without someone claiming you, please try to add more items to your list so you have a better chance of being claimed.  Remember that it is possible that not all of your items will be claimed. 

There will be a discussion/gallery thread in the Gallery area.  This is an area to give us updates and discuss this swap. 

At the end of the month, whoever is the last on the list will be first on the list for the following month/or the organizer (me!) will be the ending claimer.  You will have to sign up for each additional round that you choose to participate in.  You must be current in the previous round to be accepted to the new round.

This swap is open to international swappers, as well as new swappers.

I reserve the right to deny participation to anyone who is late in previous rounds of this swap.  This is a holiday swap and should be fun!

Hi, Im Ash! I live in Ontario, Canada with my lovely OH. I just graduated with my MA and after working as a designer for many years recently got laid off. I figured getting a head start on presents while searching for a new job would keep me positive, plus I love crafting and planning for the holidays! This is a great swap concept and I cant wait to start Smiley

Sidenote: Ive got allergies to perfumes and smoke so anyone sending should be aware as these gifts will be in my house for a while before the holiday season.

Blue: Newly Added Wishes

My Other Half (birthday also in Nov) My lovely gentleman has been away from his family for a long time and his grandmother who helped raised him died a few months ago without being able to say goodbye. Any talk of Christmas makes him sad and feel lonely even though my family loves him and we will be celebrating with them. Id love to be able to give him special presents inspired by him : ) Athletic, enjoys being outside, Adventure Time, cute little bunnies and outdoor creatures, cooking, computer games. Allergies: We cohabitate and Ive got allergies to perfumes, cats, and smoke (plus foods but shouldnt be an issue).
Some ornaments or small artwork inspired by Turkey, the country he grew up in
stuff using the the Evil (Turkish) Eye symbol, which he loves http://www.natashascafe.com/images/products/evileye3.jpg

Mom A generous, overworked crafty lady dealing with a lot of stress right now. Likes tea, sewing, reading, travelling to hot beachy places. I always have a hard time figuring out what to give her! Allergies: yeast.

Dad Modern day renaissance man and all around hilarious guy. We like many of the same things, especially when it comes to geekery. No relevant allergies.
Tintin cross-stitch or embroidery- he loves the old cartoon and the comics. It would be amazing to have a cross-stitch we could frame and hang on the wall in his office. Any character would be great or even a cover if you are feeling inspired Wink Some examples:

I claim smashu for a crocheted pig mug cozy.

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!)

Husband - Computer programmer by day, Awesome Husband by night! He's into Fieros, grilling and electronics.

Hi! Im Kerrie, 24 years old living in Beverly, Ma with my boyfriend of over 4 years and some friends.

I have a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science and am a full time personal trainer. I am also a professional Middle Eastern Dancer (belly dancer), I perform 1-2x/week at Greek/Lebanese restaurants or private parties (weddings, anniversaries, bdays, etc).

I love to cook, craft (jewelry being my favorite), hike, play sports, read, dance
I love nature inspired things especially birds and trees!
I love all colors, aqua is probably my favorite.
I love artwork, especially nature themed or dance inspired drawings/paintings. I am starting a wall of belly dance art and would love to add to it!

I dislike country style items not a fan of anything too frilly.

Allergies:
Hay (the kind you feed horses/guina pigs) makes me sneezy, and so does smoke. As long as the items arent around those things, it should be fine.
 
I made a Pinterest specifically for swaps, so you can just check that out if its easier for you to browse through pictures. Its sorted by categories so its easy to navigate.

I claim KerrieRou for short Leg Warmers from her pinterest.
1/0/0



I live in Iowa with my boyfriend (of 8 years) and our small Multipoo dog named sissy.
Blue = Big Wish
purple = New last post
Orange = New this post


We have 3 main groups we give Christmas gifts to. One is a people around town that we give gift bags too. The second is distant relatives or people we know too well for the gift bags. The third is immediate family. I could use help with this year. I have no clue what to get the first 2 groups so you could make anything you wanted. The only thing you should keep in mind that most are couples and most are senior aged. I made a board on pintrest with some ideas. They are just to give you ideas; you dont need to make something on the board if you have a different idea. I also have a board for the 3rd group. Again, that is just for inspiration; you can make anything you think they would like.

-   Tiny gift(s) The tiny ones are people around town (the first group). Usually I pick up all 8-10 of them for around $20 (just to give you an idea on value). This is like the mail man and the trash guy. It is okay if they are really tiny. I am going to leave them on my list and make little goodies bags. Maybe ornaments, snack bags, cooking mixes, magnets, hot coco mixes, chocolate dipped spoons, magnetic clothespins, altered clothes pin magnets, finger hot pads, alerted notebooks, bookmarks. Really, anything you can think of. I am horrible at coming up with ideas. You dont need to claim all 10. Just claim how ever many you want to meet the swap requirements, or mix-and-match with other things on my list.
-   Small gift(s) (the second group) Usually we spend around $10-$20 each on these. We will send 4 of these this year. I dont actually know any of these people, as they are distance relatives of my boyfriends or his ex (he got along well with her family well, and likes to send them something small). 2 are couples, 2 are single (1 women, 1 man). All are seniors or near it, with no kids in the house. If you like things more spelled out, here it is:
Small gift A Our Neighbors. Married couple. In their 60s. He is in a wheel chair.
 Small gift B Male, Single. In his 50s In a band. Loves anything related to music and comics. Likes old 30s and 40s cars.
Small gift C Female, single. 55 years old.
Small gift D Bfs ex-parent-in-laws. Married. In their 70s (or so). He is a retired fireman.

Some ideas are cookie mix in a jar, coffee mixes and anything else


My boyfriends Grandkids Perhaps someone likes making gifts for kids? You could make anything you would like.
My boyfriend has 4 kids (all grown). 2 are married with kids. One has 1 boy (age 7) and 1 girl (age 3). The other has 2 boys (ages 8 and 2). We could use some gifts for the grandkids (dont worry about the kids, they like cash Smiley  We just need gifts for the grandkids.)
Some ideas:
-    Maybe something like this for the youngest boy?
-    Checker Board Any medium (sewn, knit, crochet, etc). I would like to get 2, they don't need to be done by the same person.
-    Surprise Snowball(s) Like this
-    Game Controler Pillow playstaion or xbox
-    Pillow fight weapons like the ones here
-    Felt Christmas Tree like this. I would love to get 2 (1 for each family), but it doesn't need to be by the same person.
-    I Spy Bag(s)
-    Anything!



My Parents
My dad is disabled. Some days he is in so much pain he cant leave his bed. Other days are better. His favorite things are going to breakfast and his dog Rosita. Rosita is great for him. When he has bad days she will lay next to him all day. Other days, she is great at getting him out of the house. She loves playing ball and car rides. So a great day for dad is taking Rosita to sonic for breakfast. She is like his child. He used to have pictures of me all over his computer and phone. They have since been replaced with pictures of her Smiley He spends a lot of time reading (especially when he cant get out of bed). He reads suspense and crime novels and can read a book or 2 a night. He is trying to get more active (when he can), so he swims at the community pool and has started playing pickleball. He pretty much likes any colors (well, he wont wear pink) and anything. He isnt picky. He has no allergies but he is diabetic.

Mom is allergic to wool (it is fine if dad gets something with wool in it, she has to be close to notice it, like a blanket or a scarf). Her favorite color is blue. There isnt any color she dislikes. She also loves Rosita, but her baby is her dog Maxie (a boy). She spends most of the time working. She just started sewing and tries to spend every minute she can find sewing. She is a natural at it. She never had a hobby before, so I think this is good from her.


-    Detroit Lions Stocking
-   Detroit Lions Bag
-   Detroit Lions Vest I would love a Lions vest for my dad. He wears a xxl. If you have an idea or something else Detroit Lions themed, that would be great too. It shouldnt take too much fabric, as it doesnt need arms.
-   Anything Detroit Lions themed for my dad.
-   3x Shirts for Dad Doesnt matter if they are sewn, stenciled, painted or anything else. He likes shirts. Any type or style. I havent seen a shirt he doesnt like. Shirts in his size are expensive and they dont have much money so he usually gets his shirts from the bargain rack from walmart (when he can find them, which isnt often). It is always the shirts no one else would wear and he loves them. He has an unusual sense of humor. His favorite was just a basic shirt that said I am Hip Hop he found for $3. He loved that shirt. If you want themes, some would be: Detroit lions, the zia symbol, Bob Marley, his dog, humorous sayings. Dont feel you need to go by those themes. He would love anything! Those are just what I could think of. Dont let them limit you.
-   Slippers For my dad. He wears a 9 in US mens. Any style. He could really use them. He cant feel his feet so sometimes he steps on things around the house (like goat heads) without realizing it. Even a thin barrier would make a big difference.
-   Stickers With Bob V. on them For my dad. He puts them on his diabetic tracking sheets. I think it is his way to make a negative thing a bit more fun. And it makes the nurses smile. They should have some sort of picture (sponge bob?) and Bob V. They could be done by hand. Or this would be good for someone with some computer skills and Avery type labels.
-   Stenciled/etched wine glasses They get their wine glasses from the dollar store. They work fine but are a bit plain. So maybe some can make glasses with a design on them? Thanks TroubleT!
-   Stenciled/etched beer glasses
-   Stenciled/etched drinking glasses
-   Stenciled/etched beer mug with Detroit Lions Logo
-   Homemade Soap  Dad loves homemade soap. He first got hooked when they got a bar of lavender goat milk soap. Since then he has tried many different types of soap (like olive oil ones) and has likes them all. I have got him a bunch of goat milk soap, so I am looking for other types. Olive oil was his favorite, but that could just be because his hasn't tried anything other than olive oil and goat milk  Smiley
-   Flip Flops for mom. Womens 7 1/2. Here is one idea. Any type would work in any craft.
-   Animal Stuff  They foster dogs and cats for their local shelter, so they can always use any animal toys/clothing/items. They have 2 dogs and 1 cat of their own.
-   49ers bag or purse for mom
-   Spongebob A stuffie would be great. I have seen crochet patterns. But any method would be great too. Perhaps a knitted or sewn one? Or perhaps a sponge bob magnet?
-   Southwest or Indian Art Any type or size. Sewn, painted, sand, yarnie, clay, really any type
-   cookie mix in a jar
-   flavored coffee mix(es) lots of easy recipes online
-   gloves for mom, any craft
-   homemade dog treats
-    Dog sweater with skull  Small dog. I have measurements.
-   Stocking stuffers Last year I didn't have much money, so I make a stocking for my mom and filled it with little things (like the little sewing accessories you can get for $1, washcloths, etc). She was almost in tears. She loved it. So I want to get some suffers to put in stockings. Just some ideas are potholder(s), hotpad, finger potholders, cooking/baking supplies/mixes/accessories, spices, dog toys, any detroit lions/49ers(football)/spongebob, anything you can think of. I am going to make my parents both one this year (or make dad one and have a bunch of little gifts for her to open).
-   Anything you think they would like I didnt ramble on about their life for no reason. Smiley If you got any ideas while reading their bio, (ie, something for animals or a bookmark for dads reading), go with it. My imagination limits me greatly. Dont let my poor imagination limit you too :p  If you have ideas, please, use them. There is also more ideas in the board I linked above.




For Mags (a family friend I have known my whole life)
-   Nightmare Before Christmas Stocking like any of these by smashu
-   Nightmare Before Christmas wallet/holder Based on this, but it would be better if it was to hold memory cards or money (or anything else you can think of) instead of tea. Actually, anything Nightmare Before Christmas related would be wonderful. It just cant be too large. Her son, his wife and their daughter are moving in with them, so they have gotten rid of a lot of knick knacks.
-   Plants vs Zombies Plush toy(s) like this
-   Nightmare Before Chistmas in Polymer Clay I know it is a long shot but this is amazing.


For My Boyfriend Blue is his favorite color, he likes most colors (he is very artistic), no allergies. Old enough to have 4 kids in their 30s Smiley .
-   Robe He needs a long, warm robe for the winter. Something that will go to atleast his mid-calf 
-   Prince Valiant 2013 Calendar
-   Homemade Baked Goods Pies (he would love an apple one with a lattice top, any size, even a super tiny one), bread, cookies. He loves baked goods and they are hard to find here. Feel free to claim him for this, I can give it to him early.
-    Super Hero Coasters as seen here. Old style comics like that would be great. He would flip if it was from old comic strips. His favorite strip is Prince Valiant (by the original artist, not the modern version).
-   ***Shorts/Boxers***. Super Duper Big Wish! When it is hot he wears boxers all day. One day he is going to forget and flash someone. I would love it if someone could make him a pair of boxers without the hole. So basically, super light weight shorts.



For gift giving
-   Gift Bags any kind
-   Molds Any molds in cute shapes (ice,candy,resin,any!), for making crayons
-   Crayons any crayons, even old, ugly broken ones.
-    Paper Cupcake Box(es) Idea1 Idea2 Idea3

Best Friend
alergic to wool and bleach. Has 3 kids, Likes World of Warcraft, True Blood and reading (mostly fan fiction)
-   Key Chain(s) She collects key chains
-    NEW! Hats n Scarfs
-    NEW! Play Food
-    NEW! penguins
Ignore any of the text on her pinterest. She doesn't change the text, so it isn't from her.


BFF's Kids
3 girls, ages 2,8 and 12
-    Craft Kit(s)
-    Pokemon Themed Item for the 12 year old. Perhaps a bag?
-    Color-your-own stationary
-    NEW! Pillow Pal unicorn. Or the bear or bunny on the same site. Sewn or crochet versions of these would also be great. Could be any girly animal.
-    Anything


For me
-    NEW! Organizer basket with divider like this
-   Reusuable Snack bags with wipe-able inside
-    NEW! Mug Organizer(s)

3/0/0

Hi! Im Kerrie, 24 years old living in a house in Massachusetts with my boyfriend of over 4 years and some friends!

I have a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science and am a full time personal trainer. I am also a professional Middle Eastern Dancer (belly dancer), I perform 1-2x/week at Greek/Lebanese restaurants or private parties (weddings, anniversaries, bdays, etc).

I love to cook, craft (jewelry being my favorite), hike, play sports, read, dance
I love nature inspired things especially birds and trees!
I love all colors, aqua is probably my favorite.
I love artwork, especially nature themed or dance inspired drawings/paintings. I am starting a wall of belly dance art and would love to add to it!

I dislike country style items not a fan of anything too frilly.

Allergies:
Hay (the kind you feed horses/guina pigs) makes me sneezy, and so does smoke. As long as the items arent around those things, it should be fine.
 
I made a Pinterest specifically for swaps, so you can just check that out if its easier for you to browse through pictures. Its sorted by categories so its easy to navigate.
