I would like to claim sweetyetevil for some stuffies/amigurmis for girls.

1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Hi, Im Lisa. Im in North Carolina with my hubby of 18 years, my daughters age 6 and 4, two Cairn terriers and a psychotic lovebird. I am a solution engineer for a software company. My main crafts are pyrography, leatherworking, knitting/crocheting and jewelry making. I am starting to dabble with ATCs and card making as well.

My Holiday List: Im not looking for anything specific, so Ive tried to give a description of what we like and leave it to crafter discretion to use your creativity.

For the Holidays
We are in a new house and have no decorations for Christmas! We have a formal dining room and staircase that weve never had before. We like to decorate in rich jewel tones think emerald green, ruby red, deep purple, sapphire blue, etc.

For my kids Sierra Age 6, Kaitlyn (Kiki) Age 4
Sierra she loves Hello Kitty, peace signs and anything with her name on it. Shes into art, so shed love drawing supplies/books.
Kaitlyn she loves cats, rainbows, unicorns and anything with her name on it (Kiki).
For both girls we are taking an epic trip to Disney World the week after Thanksgiving. Im not into scrapbooking, so if someone likes that kind of thing and would like to do some Disney themed scrapbook pages, it would be awesome!

For my husband
He collects funny refrigerator magnets and beer pint glasses. He loves ravens, elephants and wolves. Hed wear manly looking hats (beanies, nothing slouchy), fingerless gloves (size Large) or scarves in greys, blacks or browns. His favorite sports team is Florida State University.

For my pups
Both pups would love strongly reinforced chew toys. Its hard to find a toy they dont destroy, so I usually stick to rawhide. They also like to cuddle in fleece blankets (no knit or crochet please, it catches on their nails)

For my crazy bird
The bird loves anything with a bell on it. Big bells, little bells, many bells. His favorite thing to do is ring a bell and then fuss at it. Hes a little nuts.

For me
I collect coffee mugs and coffee-related art. I also collect turtles. I love yarn especially bamboo or silk. I also like sugar skulls, steampunk, and art in black & white with splashes of red (Im sure that has a name but I dont know what it is).

Thank you so much!

I claim texscrapper for some handmade crosses!  1,0,0

I'm Tandra from northwestern PA.  I am newly married and live with my husband, mom, kid brother, and three spoiled pets.  I finished school last year and currently work as a freelance writer and tutor, which I absolutely love.  DH and I are huge nerds and as a family we all love handmade.

I have a fairly big pinterest with all sorts of ideas, so if nothing on my list strikes your fancy, there's lots more I'd love.  Even if it's in one of my mediums (crochet and a little bit of sewing or knitting) feel free to create anything Smiley

***Biggest Wishes***
--Black acrylic grannys daughters for an afghan I want to make my little brother.  Any amount you care to send would be great!

--Bible verse wall art for my mother.  She recently painted her living room and will be doing more remodeling soon.  I have a whole pinterest board of ideas and wordings she likes: http://pinterest.com/writer_crafter/bible-verse-artwork/

--Knitted Game of Thrones mittens for my DH.  I have the pattern but my skills arent up to par yet :-/ http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/winter-is-coming

**For Family**
--A pair of lightweight lounge or yoga pants for my sister (I can PM measurements).  She likes black and purple, rainbows & peace signs

--A dreamcatcher for the same sister.  It would need to be on the smaller side since I have to mail her gifts to FL where shes finishing school.

--A shadowbox piggy bank for my mother.  Shes planning a trip to England so a photo of Big Ben, a double-decker bus, the Tower or Bridge, etc. would be great!  http://www.uncommongoods.com/product/dream-bank

--Etched glasses for my DH Devin.  Hes a big Captain America fan, but also loves Game of Thrones, particularly the Stark direwolf.

--Potholders and paper napkins for my mom.  Something sturdy and washable; her favorite colors are royal blue, emerald, lavender, and pastels, but holiday prints are good, too (no Santas please)

--Something for my animal babies!  I am Mommy to an old cat, Oreo, and a spoiled boxer/lab mix named Sammy.  Catnip & treats are always welcome, also tug toys or a sweater for Sammy.  We also have a juvenile green iguana and I think my DH would love wall-art, a plushie, or something like that of him.
http://pinterest.com/writer_crafter/pets/ 

**For Friends**
--Quilted wine bottle totes in any color/pattern http://pinterest.com/pin/147985537726692274/
 
--An etched casserole dish, platter, or cake plate with the name Wilcox http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2010/06/glass-etching.html

--Stay-put kitchen towels in red and black or pink and black http://www.realphotography.com/traci/?p=986

Any non-chocolate candies or other stocking stuffer items are also welcome!  Cheesy

I claim Mrs.Awesome_Pants for Bible Verse wall art, something for the animals, and (if I can find the pattern!) granny's daughters.

Hello, I'm Betsy! I live in Indiana with my husband, 3 cats, and 3 reptilians (1 bearded dragons, 2 leopard geckos). Husband is a software programmer/consultant; I'm unemployed, but in school for mortuary sciences. I do ATCs, crochet (anything), journaling, painting, scrapbooking, hand sewing, cross stitch, embroidery...

General holiday:
 - Cards   (This would also work as a card as well. Smiley )

Husband:
If you don't like anything from the list below, here's some information on him... He currently works as a "consultant" for a software development company. He's started having to count calories/watch his weight (doctor's orders). He's an extremely picky eater and I'm always looking for recipes to try for him. He loves his PS3, fantasy novels, Doctor Who, Sherlock, certain anime, British comedy, Chuck Palahnuik, Plants VS Zombies, his Android phone... He's a huge cat lover, so even if you want to send him some cat toys.
 - TARDIS stocking (this, this, and this are very awesome.)
 - Portal themed coasters
 - Aperature Polo
 - this clock
 - Anything from the pinterest list I made him
Stocking stuffer things: Pens, cat toys, Peach Rings, cat treats/toys/art, Nerf Gun darts...

My Sister:
 - Scrubbies, reusable Swiffer mop thing or this
 - Cat toys

Cousin A:
She received a Kindle Touch for her birthday and will be in the hospital for a month for is recovering from a heart transplant. I'd love to get her a case for it or something. (Owls or Harry Potter (like this?) would be awesome.)
Her kids are getting Kindle Fires and needs a case for both. (They're five and eight, so... Big fan of princesses, Transformers, and classic Batman.)
 - Kindle Touch case
 - two Kindle Fire cases
Cousin B:
He loves cthulhu, H.P. Lovecraft, unique board or card games, pen and paper RPGs, and he's a huge Brony. His favorite pony is Fluttershy (and Octavia), hers is Nightmare Moon (and Princess Crysalis)... He and his wife just moved to Wisconsin, so something small with any theme.
It doesn't matter if it's a bookmark, cup, ornament, or anything... (This or this ornament idea)

Everyone Else:
 - a small ornament, doesn't have to be the same theme or person. Smiley  This, this, this, this, this, and my uncle would like something like this.
I have 4 sets (my mom's mom, my mom's (real) dad, my dad's side, and hubby's mom's mom) of grandparents. My dad's side and my mom's dad have had a rough time; if one of them isn't in the hospital or ER, the other is. I also two aunt/uncle sets, his parents, his sister, and his brother/brother's wife.

Friend S:
She's a fan of Supernatural, Doctor Who, the Avengers, Sherlock, Magic the Gathering, RPGs, zombies, and alcohol.
 - Pocket Loki
Shot glasses, etched mugs, wall-art, or anything. Smiley
Friend D:
A little harder to plan for... He's been Afghanistan for a year now (second or third time over?), likes Magic the Gathering, PS3 videogames, Borderlands series, and alcohol... I'm leaning towards etched shot glasses/mugs, Magic the Gathering packs, drunken gummies...
Friend P:
An alcoholic working for the local paper. She sees horrific things and recently got a cat. Vegetarian. Loves zombies, the Walking Dead, her cat, and her boyfriend (who is in the navy).
 - Cat toys/nip/food storage/treats
 - Nice/comfy neck strap for a huge camera
 - Beer mugs/shot glasses

Myself:
 - ATC papers
 - zombie anything (wall art, plushes, mugs, patches, bags, whatever)
 - TARDIS in a jar
 - Book Love Kindle cover
 - Anatomical Heart pincushion
 - Knit Alot Monster
My personal pinterest list board is here for inspiration.

I claim love for some crocheted washcloths and a scarf Smiley  2,0,0

I'm Tandra from northwestern PA.  I am newly married and live with my husband, mom, kid brother, and three spoiled pets.  I finished school last year and currently work as a freelance writer and tutor, which I absolutely love.  DH and I are huge nerds and as a family we all love handmade.

I have a fairly big pinterest with all sorts of ideas, so if nothing on my list strikes your fancy, there's lots more I'd love.  Even if it's in one of my mediums (crochet and a little bit of sewing or knitting) feel free to create anything

***Biggest Wishes***
--Black acrylic grannys daughters for an afghan I want to make my little brother.  Any amount you care to send would be great! Thanks TwistedTruth for your contribution, would always love more Smiley

--Bible verse wall art for my mother.  She recently painted her living room and will be doing more remodeling soon.  I have a whole pinterest board of ideas and wordings she likes: http://pinterest.com/writer_crafter/bible-verse-artwork/  Thank you TwistedTruth!

--Knitted Game of Thrones mittens for my DH.  I have the pattern but my skills arent up to par yet :-/ http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/winter-is-coming

I am doing a charity project for the Veteran's Affairs hospital this year and could always use some crafty help.  My mother is a vet and while hospitalized, had trouble getting a cup of coffee, so I am making mug baskets with instant coffee/tea/cocoa for vets.  I'd like to include mug cozies to brighten them up some -- knitted, crocheted, whatever, in any colors or patterns!  Thanks!

**For Family**
--A pair of lightweight lounge or yoga pants for my sister (I can PM measurements).  She likes black and purple, rainbows & peace signs

--A dreamcatcher for the same sister.  It would need to be on the smaller side since I have to mail her gifts to FL where shes finishing school.

--A shadowbox piggy bank for my mother.  Shes planning a trip to England so a photo of Big Ben, a double-decker bus, the Tower or Bridge, etc. would be great!  http://www.uncommongoods.com/product/dream-bank

--Etched glasses for my DH Devin.  Hes a big Captain America fan, but also loves Game of Thrones, particularly the Stark direwolf.

--Potholders and paper napkins for my mom.  Something sturdy and washable; her favorite colors are royal blue, emerald, lavender, and pastels, but holiday prints are good, too (no Santas please)

--Something for my animal babies!  I am Mommy to an old cat, Oreo, and a spoiled boxer/lab mix named Sammy.  Catnip & treats are always welcome, also tug toys or a sweater for Sammy.  We also have a juvenile green iguana and I think my DH would love wall-art, a plushie, or something like that of him.

  Thank you TwistedTruth!

**For Friends**
--Quilted wine bottle totes in any color/pattern http://pinterest.com/pin/147985537726692274/
 
--An etched casserole dish, platter, or cake plate with the name Wilcox http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2010/06/glass-etching.html

--Stay-put kitchen towels in red and black or pink and black http://www.realphotography.com/traci/?p=986

Any non-chocolate candies or other stocking stuffer items are also welcome!
