Hurrah, STS back in business! Sweep off the vendor stalls, make sure the restroom's stocked with TP, and pipe in the too-early generic holiday music, because shopping season has arrived!  Grin

I must hold back and ignore the swap these first two weeks, though my instinct is to jump on board right now and get to shop-building. After a couple weeks, everything will be more manageable, I think.  Smiley That being said, I won't have more than the minimum to offer, most likely.

That curly-toed stocking is fabulous, PW; I can't imagine how long that would take to create. Love your other creations, too!

Since wishlists might be bigger than usual this round, covering the various people we're shopping for, maybe it would be helpful post those lists in this thread, and put a link to that post at the end of your shop. Or if you've posted it elsewhere, such as in another swap or if you have a relevant Pinterest board, put the link to that at the end of your STS shop post. If you just have a dozen items on the wishlist and they don't require elaboration, that's no big deal in the shop post, but if you have a bunch of people for whom to shop, and can list relevant things about them but aren't set on getting them a particular item, or if you have separate wishlists for each of them, that could get pretty lengthy! (just like my sentences!  Cheesy) It's really useful information, though, so if it could be listed somewhere then we can consult it for ideas. And regardless of what form the wishlist takes, please consider including one in this round; if you have any holiday shopping to do (including shopping for your own home decor), definitely shop STS first! (Or shop local first, and shop STS second.  Wink)

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.

Good idea calluna. I do have a wish list for another swap, but I'll post my biggest wishes here, and ones I don't have on the other list.
I really want a good sized stocking for my dad. It would be amazing if it was Detroit lions themed. If someone didn't want to by the fabric, maybe making a stencil of their logo (the old one is very simple) and cutting a piece of fabric to sew on a stocking. If that idea didn't work, he would also like one with a southwest theme. So would mom, actually.

I would love a mug organizer, Microwave potato/veggie bag, wipe-able snack bags (sandwich sized), I spy bags (mini ones would be good, to bring the cost down, since I would need at least 2), and little things that would make good stocking stuffers for adults.

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

Haha so eager. You're probably fine - I've just been out of the game for a while so I thought it best to wait lest I start out my comeback with a slap on the wrist from the orgs  Roll Eyes Cheesy

And just to taunt you with some of my forthcoming wares



And I hope there's some John Deer fans out there; I scored a bunch of John Deer novelty fabric from the bf's mother that I took in case anyone wanted any - I have a lot of yardage and will never use it lol.

Good to know!  Thanks L2E!   Now I really have no excuse not to get my shop up and running.  I'll have to think about my wish list.

I opened my shop -- I have lots to add, but I thought I'd get it open and work from there!
