Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, jams & jellies!  Yumm!  So glad you found an angel, but so sorry that you need to, mama24boyz!

Okay, ever get one of those packages that makes you feel super-spoiled and undeserving?  (Duh, of course you have, this IS Craftster after all!  Grin )

I received yet another amazing package from watsonc7!  She went way above and beyond and I really have to stay on the swap thread so that I can try and catch her and send some spoilage her way as well....here we go:

First up, she claimed me for a Silhouette Cameo cover for my sis-in-law.  She wasn't sure it would fit, so I photographed it on my own Cameo so that she can see it fits just perfectly!  And the fabric is quite lovely - sadly, the pic doesn't show how vibrant it is:

She also added 'baby stuffs' to the claim!  My brother is so excited for this little one, and he has absolutely no idea how spoiled the baby boy is going to be thanks to all the wonderful Craftsters who have crafted lovelies for him!  Again, the pics are a bit off, but the colors are vibrant.  First up a wonderful baby blanket with a beautiful cotton focus fabric and an amazingly soft minky-like backing.  watsonc7 even quilted it together.  Just lovely!

And next up, an adorable sunny taggie toy - not only is it soft and tactile, but it also has a jingle bell hidden inside!  Way too cute!

And finally, many of you know that our company donates a tree to the St. Alphonsus Festival of Trees each year.  This year our theme is Vintage Americana Highway and watsonc7 sent along some beautiful little ornaments for the tree.  Lucky for me she also sent along the name of the fabric line - I think I may have to source some for projects of my own!

We decorate the trees the week of Thanksgiving ~ I'll be sure to post a pic of ours so that those of you who have contributed might see your handiwork in context!

Once again, your talent and generosity have blown me away, watsonc7!  Thank you so very, very much and I'll be watching for you to pop up on the list!

I'm so glad you liked it all Glasskicker, I've had fun making all this stuff for you,I keep getting drawn to your list Smiley. The fabric for the blanket is from Robert Kaufman Critter Community, it was just waiting patiently to become a blankie.  I can't wait to see the tree y'all decorate, that is so awesome!  I'm trying to find ways for our daughter to get into the charitable spirit so I think we are going to make knot blankets for our local SPCA this year, she loves Himalayas (ok spellcheck got Himalayas out of me typing 'dogs' somehow and it made me laugh so I had to leave it) so maybe that will be the drive to get her to give up some playtime to tie a few knot blankets Smiley.

 I actually don't have any current claims...I'm waiting on a few things to reach their new homes, but nothing to actually work on, it's so weird!  I'm hoping to get three more claims in and break last months record Smiley before it ends next week, but we will see. I m so sad we only have  one more month of OHLS, I'm loving this!

I need to learn how to can and make jellies, mmmmmm.....I better get on that before the zombies come

Mailed out yesterday and talked to the NICEST post office lady ever! I'll have to sit tight until they are received before claiming again. Like Watsonc7, I have NOTHING to work on right now. How crazy! I have to buy a car before the end of the month, so I suppose I should work on that...

I received a fantastic brown and white cowl from LadyBugsandBumblebees earlier this week. I gave up on having one of my girls model it and took it on myself this morning. Now to figure out who's going to be the lucky one to receive it.


I'd love to do a personal swap for this knit Death Flake hat

Hello Guys,

sorry for my very late post, I've got 4 packages on Tuesday, but I did not have time to post up pictures. Now, I am here with the missing parts of the claims:

So, let's start with this claim: mama24boys made an awesome viking hat, and a cute ami:
Here is the hat (as my son getting taller and bigger every month, I did not want to make it as a Christmas gift, I gave it to him already. He likes it so much (and me too!!!):

We have got a cute monkey, it hides at the bookcase right now, and will be an awesome Christmas gift for him! Look at it:

Thanks a lot, Melanie! Love them both!! Smiley

The next one is a "Jumpman something" for my husband, and some handmade Christmas cards from crazyda79:
I've got a nice glass with Jumpman logo, which is painted by crazyda79:
(sorry for the picture quality, I couldn't make better photos, but this is awesome! I am sure, he will love it!)
I've got a lot of handmade cards, with stamped envelopes:

Here are some detailed pictures, look how perfect cards she made:

Thank you, Brenda! That was an awesome package!

Another package: from nisforneville, I've got a cute crocheted cowboy hat for my son - I did not give it to him yet, will be a Christmas gift, so I am the model  Cool:

... the he found it:

(Bit it's a bit too big for him, so I'll make it as a Christmas gift)
Thanks a lot, Laura, I love it!

Grab A Coffe your son is so crazy adorable, he got some awesome treats!  Love the hats

I got not one but TWO fort kits from momof2 today...the shipping cost made me feel so bad!  Ahhhh, the things craftster makes us do lol.  I have some seriously lucky nieces/nephews because they are getting a bag of adventure. 

Inside each bag are a set of sheets for making the forts, momof2 did you make these because they seem bigger than normal (kids will be building castles yeaaaa!)?  Also flashlights (with batteries!!!), clips to hold the sheets in place, glow sticks and rope.   I'm so excited about these gifts...I got super spoiled, love it!   Ooooh and the bags are even tied with bungie cord.

Thank you so much momof2 you made my day!

Wow!  Those are wonderful fort kits!!  I remember when Lana would build forts all over the house.  Good time!  I bet your niece/nephew will have a blast with those kits!

I'm so glad you like them. No, I didn't make the sheets. I bought them. They are queen size. I've worked over a lot this week, but I'm off all weekend so I will hopefully be able to finish the 2 claims I have.
