..shhh...don't mention it, but LimeRiot is actually a pale lime color...you didn't think a mere human being could craft all those wonderful goodies, did you? Wink

Ok--narrowing down the choices...and trying to get them all to relate...I am told we can't do three of each theme...stupid rules! Grin

alwaysinmyroom is right, I'm like the scary green incredible hulk of crafting Wink. Actually, I just really love limes and I like the other definition of riot... Unrestrained merrymaking; revelry Smiley.

I'm having fun figuring out how to make 3 different things but still carry the same theme throughout!

It's more than that though, isn't it? All 3 items don't just have to be the same theme, the two smalls have to be related to/support the big item, right?

Don't get too worried about that detail. To me, for example, if your partner had "Bells" as a theme, you could make a wreath out of bells, make a bell ornament, and do an art print on a piece of "Silver Bells" sheet music. The bells all relate.

Say your partner chose "Santa". For the large item, you could make a stuffed Santa, and the two small HOs could be a little reindeer friend, and a beautifully decorated "present" that may or may not have a little surprise inside. These three things would also relate, because they naturally go together.

We're pretty open to interpretation of the rules, as long as you send one large and two small HOs. Just don't send three things that definitely don't belong together, like a snowflake ornament, a Christmas tree made out of a cone, and a plaid table runner.

That would have been a  FABULOUS, FABULOUS, FABULOUS theme.

... to look at, not receive... oh dear oh dear... "dear crafting gods, please don't let my partner think that my enthusiasm means I actually want tacky christmas centerpieces..."

I almost wrote "Don't be a smartass and tell us why those three things do go together.
