Welcome to the Ongoing Holiday Gift List Swap! Round 10!


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 mama24boyz 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 10: questionnaire, OHLS 10: 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!

First up is me!!  Cheesy

Hi!  Im Melanie from Ontario, Canada. Im a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 baby girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have  a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  Im sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course  Wink http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/
These would be great for anyone on my list too http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505455/
As would these snowman chocolates http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505443/
Heres another thing that would work for so many people. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509667971/

Mom OK, my Mom is hard!!  Maybe not, but she is for me.  She has a unique style I think.  She loves her hot tub and being outside.  She likes wine.  She has little iguanas hanging around (ceramic, not real) and she likes bold colours.
- I would LOVE if someone could knit her these socks http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lizard-socks-2
- My Moms a machine shop teacher in high school.  I think she would LOVE some sort of steampunk ornament.  
- My Mom would LOVE this windchime made of old wine bottles.  Could be any colour. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510547042/
- These mason jars would be perfect for her deck at night! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510408563/
- This would be PERFECT!!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513369661/

Dad My Dad is another one who is pretty difficult.  Hes originally from Manchester England and loves Manchester soccer team.  I really dont have any ideas for him.
- Manchester United coasters

Max - Brother Max and Nat just had a baby boy!!!  As of today he is a whole 5 days old!!  Max also LOVES Ace Ventura and Scarface.
- Something to do with Daddy would be amazingly awesome!
- This Jack Daniels soap bottle would be great for his mancave http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513035150/

Natalie SIL Nat loves dancing and baking.  She has her own dance studio where she teaches kids.  She loves turtles.  She likes nautical themed things.  Shes a brand new wonderful Mommy!!
- Ballerina loaded charm bracelet
- A business card holder
- She does yoga, these socks or some similar would be perfect! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559563/
- I think Nat would like these too, I like that they look like long legwarmers but they really only peek out the top of your boot so they don't have to be as long as these ones and go all the way to your ankle... http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559566/
- A cute chapstick holder would be nice, whether its for one to hang on a keychain or something for multiple to go in her purse
- HUGE WISH!!!! would LOVE this for Nat - http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513422873/ to say Madden of course, 08-24-13 as the birth date and August birthstone
- bath teas http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505449/

Madden - nephew
- well, as I said earlier, he's just born, so any little baby toys appropriate for a (do the math) 4 month old  Grin
- some cute baby onesies
- This would be adorable in a 6 month size http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513501984/
- baby bibs, these are adorable http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199511111294/
- A knit baby hat http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513501989/

Haley SIL #2

- Love this wall hanging for her too http://pinterest.com/pin/280067670547028502/

Quenton  Quenton is 16.  He likes playing xbox and loves his phone!! lol  
- Id love to get him these pillows for his room, http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510472773/ but I would want them to spell SWAG, cuz he thinks hes got some, haha
- anything with Deadmaus

Liam Liam is my little mathematician. He also loves to read.  He loves Mario and Zelda games.  His new fave is Minecraft though.
- anything Minecraft
- A personalized notebook
- I would love one of those little pouch things that you can hang off the side of your bed and it holds things.  I would actually love one for each of the kids, one claim at a time of course.

- Anything Minecraft
- A personalized notebook
- He runs around yelling PICKLE all the time.  I would love to give him this!!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513341106/

- Fireman/policeman ANYTHING (plush, bag, art to hang in his room, toy.)
- I think I would like to make up a felt toy set, maybe have it in a nice box for him.  Filled with felt masks, kinda like a dress up box I guess, but mostly masks.  Animals, glasses, mustaches, superheroes.  This is copied over from last year and he still has some, but honestly, he absolutely LOVES this stuff!!
- Speaking of felt, this would be adorable for him and he would LOVE to be Santa!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513500840/
- A crochet Santa beard hat, Ethan would LOVE this http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bearded-santa-hat

Daysie-Lynn Well, shes the first girl, so needless to say, after 4 boys, shes very girly, haha. I seem to love the colour combos with browns for her (pink/brown, lt blue/brown..)
- a cute outfit
- a doll for her, any medium, sewn, crocheted, knit......
- she loves purses
- some felt play things, maybe things to go in a purse?

Kid Gifts My MIL has foster kids and we all consider them family!!  Id love to get them some little things. I have no idea really what. Theres 3 girls (17, 15, 10) and 2 boys (18, 11)

Any stocking stuffers for my kiddies would be much appreciated too.  Anything you would think my kids would like!!

I would love some Christmas ornaments, I LOVE the quilted balls http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509688611/ or ribbon pinecones http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509688610/ or felt pinecones http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509721210/

A personalized ornament for the kids in themes they would like

Some Christmas cards for me to send out (more funny than religious)

Chalkboard Gift tags for presents

A good sized advent calender for the kids for Christmas

Love this Christmasy wreath http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199511189104/

A Christmas tree skirt, doesn't have to be totally Christmasy, but it can be, but I also like just a blue/silver or purple/silver, or something cute and Christmasy

Again, I have a HUGE pinterest!  If you see something that strikes you, that'd be awesome!!

Like most moms today I try to do everything! I work at a local church as the Director of Children's ministry, sit on the twins elementary school PTO, volunteer in scouts, and run around like a chicken with my head cut off. I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing, jewelry making, and various other hobbies.

I claim texscrapper for a large pillow for Tate and a plastic bag holder for sis    

1 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received

Hey hey!
My name is Christy and I live in Maryland.  I am a stay at home mommy of one really energetic and crazy hilarious daughter.  We also have a lil chihuahua "ChiChi" and a chunky bunny "Fuzz Ball". I am originally from Austin, Texas and even though I love the seasons in Maryland, I am hoping to move back to crazy hot Austin when my husband retires from the Navy.  I picked up sewing about 2 years ago and have become a crafting freak.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.  My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas so if you want to craft something from there  please PM me first to make sure it is still available (I'm in the ongoing wishlist swap as well).  http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  I'm totally using this list as my personal gift-giving list as well, so if I get a chance to sew things off this list myself I will be taking them off. There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).


GRANDPARENTS
GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church. She's also madly in love with her family, she spoils  us all rotten, so anything that would get her to pamper herself  would be awesome.

Mawmaw: She's an adorable, active,  social lil wino lol. She's in a group called the Ya-Ya's that travel and eat out together a lot so I would LOVE anything you can come up with that incorporates any of that.  

Etched wine glasses for my Mawmaw, she loves her wine! Something funny like her favorite saying "big girl at night, big girl in the morning" or "It's wine-o-clock" or something like this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395164/

Love this wooden sign (I can assemble it myself to help with shipping) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396388/

IN-LAWS:

(3) set of 4 resin photo coasters.  Would love a set of coasters of the great/grandkids.  I would send you the 4 pics.

BIL is a freak for Star Wars and Star Trek so anything related to that.  L shirts, pouches, dopp kit, anything geeky

melted wine bottle spoon holder for kitchen
 
(unlimited) Fabric paper towels.   Neutral colors that could match with a lot  of different kitchens http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395335/

KitchenAid mixer cover for my SIL who has a green kitchen (so would rather it just have green accents maybe, not all green).  It doesn't have to be as intricate as the link, there are tons of different designs online
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

ANYTHING Grumpy Cat
grumpy cat painted mugs http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773362804/

wine cork hot plate stand (would love any shape/size for the kitchen) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773070638/

Mug Rugs:
wine-themed for Mawmaw
(4) christmas themed for nieces/nephews
cardinal themed for GGma
(3) tea themed
coffee themed rugs
any mug rugs inspired by ones on my Craftster board

(2-3) zen gardens http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395297/

wood burned utensils,  any design  http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395014/

(2)Curling  Iron travel case for Mawmaw and GGma.  Any fabric
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773394881/

KIDS  (note allergens)

Ladies First::::::
Hair accessories (any kind) -- I have a 5 and 7 year old nieces who are total divas (you can hear their heels clicking all through the house!)

My nieces also love the movie Camp Rock so anything themed to that would freak them out (they are seriously so easy to please, love it!)

anything for 2 baby girls (by Christmas one will be 4 months (***allergies in that household***) and the other will be almost a year old). Hair bands, ruffle bloomers, onesie dresses, fabric shoes, anything girly

Hair accessory hanging ribbon to hold clips

super cute fox scarf (doesn't have to be exact, but rusty fox colors would be great) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395069/

Any kind of cute animal scarves for my young nieces/nephews

My niece (16) just picked up sewing (I'm THRILLED!).  I got her the basic tools to start but a cool pincusion, any color thread and fabric would be awesome. She's got a Taylor Swift style, she's so adorable so any fabrics that are "old style-cool classic" (she likes lace and light florals for example) would be great.  A "welcome to sewing" gift basically.

Niece (14) who is a twitter crazy head.  I'm thinking some sort  of zip pouch or bag with twitter emoticons on it

I poop magic pillow (I can stuff it myself to help with shipping) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367701/

Another niece (10) is called "Sporty Spice" and she works it, that's totally her style.  Any elastic waisted skirts  (not sure of her measurements but she's a typical 10 yosize wise).  She also likes ribbon/fabric ponytail holders.

Boys:::::
(5) super hero fort kit -- any boyish colors/themes.  ****One of these kits needs to be from an allergen free home,  please let me know  if you have allergens  in your home so I don't  give it to them, thanks! ****
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396328/

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games

Another 9 yo nephew is really into Boy Scouts, so anything themed to that would be great.it seems like they go camping a lot

I have 3 nephews (6, 4, 2.5---- brothers******ALLERGIES****) that are into superheroes so different superhero masks/capes/cuffs/whatever would be hilarious

fabric chess set, anything but pink (if you don't have chess pieces, I would love checkers pieces made out of felt or something )  for nephew     http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773359817/

(unlimited) constellation shadow cards would be great stocking stuffers http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367809/

(lots) candy wrapper zip pouches from any kind of candy    
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395035/

I claim watsonc7 for a grumpy cat mug (or two if you'd like) and a hair accessory hanging ribbon

1/0/0

Okay, so I'm JoAnn from Texas.  There's me, my husband, our two puppies, four parents, 9 siblings (and sibling in-laws), 8 biological nieces and nephews, and 5 friends who are like family and the honorary 4 nieces and nephews that come with them!  So yeah, there's plenty to craft for.  We also have a lot of birthdays around the holidays as well.

Minor allergies to smoke but not a big deal unless it's an in-your-face or all-day item.

I've been trying to figure out the best way to structure this list so I'm not sure if I've hit on it - let me know if it doesn't make sense!  I am VERY open to interpretations of items - they do not need to be duplicates (unless it's something very specific and those should be marked).  I am VERY open to different mediums - for almost everything, I don't care if it's stenciled/cross-stiched/embroidered/whatever or if something is knit or crocheted - that kind of thing.  Whatever works for you works for me =)  

Lastly, I am VERY open to your ideas as well!  

I do have a Pinterest specific to gifts at http://pinterest.com/j4192/boards/  The ONLY board I am NOT open to is the one that says 'For me to make' - these are gift ideas I will tackle on my own at some point.  Everything else is totally fair game.  Many things are listed under one person but would be appropriate for more than one person - I will indicate when this is the case (totally understanding that you don't need to claim more than one).

Things in italics are my top 1-2 picks for each person on my list.  These are ideal - do not hesitate AT ALL to claim something else!!

Clothing and Accessories - Sewn, Painted, Stenciled, Embroidered, whatever

i claim rockmygyspysoul for burlap placemats

1/0/0

Hello! I live in San Francisco, CA. USA! I love to try and only give crafted gifts as presents and this swap helps so much with that! I usually love surprises but I would like to know what I'm being claimed for in this swap because I want to make a lot of these items too and don't want us both to be crafting the same awesomeness at the same time!

No major allergies to worry about except the smell of smoke/heavy perfume gives me and many of my family members migraines!

Thanks in advance!

I claim Lo{ve} for some felt food

2 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
 texscrapper for a large pillow for Tate and a plastic bag holder for sis (claimed)
Lo{ve} for some felt food (claimed)

My name is Christy and I live in Maryland.  I am a stay at home mommy of one really energetic and crazy hilarious daughter.  We also have a lil chihuahua "ChiChi" and a chunky bunny "Fuzz Ball". I am originally from Austin, Texas and even though I love the seasons in Maryland, I am hoping to move back to crazy hot Austin when my husband retires from the Navy.  I picked up sewing about 2 years ago and have become a crafting freak.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.  My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas so if you want to craft something from there  please PM me first to make sure it is still available (I'm in the ongoing wishlist swap as well).  http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  I'm totally using this list as my personal gift-giving list as well, so if I get a chance to sew things off this list myself I will be taking them off. There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

GRANDPARENTS
GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church. She's also madly in love with her family, she spoils  us all rotten, so anything that would get her to pamper herself  would be awesome.

Mawmaw: She's an adorable, active,  social lil wino lol. She's in a group called the Ya-Ya's that travel and eat out together a lot so I would LOVE anything you can come up with that incorporates any of that.  

Etched wine glasses for my Mawmaw, she loves her wine! Something funny like her favorite saying "big girl at night, big girl in the morning" or "It's wine-o-clock" or something like this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395164/

Love this wooden sign (I can assemble it myself to help with shipping) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396388/

IN-LAWS:

(3) set of 4 resin photo coasters.  Would love a set of coasters of the great/grandkids.  I would send you the 4 pics.

melted wine bottle spoon holder for kitchen
 
(unlimited) Fabric paper towels.   Neutral colors that could match with a lot  of different kitchens http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395335/

KitchenAid mixer cover for my SIL who has a green kitchen (so would rather it just have green accents maybe, not all green).  It doesn't have to be as intricate as the link, there are tons of different designs online
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

ANYTHING Grumpy Cat
grumpy cat painted mugs http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773362804/ (rockmygypsysoul)

wine cork hot plate stand (would love any shape/size for the kitchen) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773070638/

Mug Rugs:
wine-themed for Mawmaw
(4) christmas themed for nieces/nephews
cardinal themed for GGma
(3) tea themed
coffee themed rugs (ladybugsandbumblebe es)
any mug rugs inspired by ones on my Craftster board

(2-3) zen gardens http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395297/

wood burned utensils,  any design  http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395014/

(2)Curling  Iron travel case for Mawmaw and GGma.  Any fabric
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773394881/

KIDS  (note allergens)

Ladies First::::::

Hair accessories (any kind) -- I have a 5 and 7 year old nieces who are total divas (you can hear their heels clicking all through the house!)

My nieces also love the movie Camp Rock so anything themed to that would freak them out (they are seriously so easy to please, love it!)

anything for 2 baby girls (by Christmas one will be 4 months (***allergies in that household***) and the other will be almost a year old). Hair bands, ruffle bloomers, onesie dresses, fabric shoes, anything girly

Hair accessory hanging ribbon to hold clips (rockmygypsysoul)

super cute fox scarf (doesn't have to be exact, but rusty fox colors would be great) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395069/

Any kind of cute animal scarves for my young nieces/nephews

My niece (16) just picked up sewing (I'm THRILLED!).  I got her the basic tools to start but a cool pincusion, any color thread and fabric would be awesome. She's got a Taylor Swift style, she's so adorable so any fabrics that are "old style-cool classic" (she likes lace and light florals for example) would be great.  A "welcome to sewing" gift basically.

Niece (14) who is a twitter crazy head.  I'm thinking some sort  of zip pouch or bag with twitter emoticons on it

I poop magic pillow (I can stuff it myself to help with shipping) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367701/

Another niece (10) is called "Sporty Spice" and she works it, that's totally her style.  Any elastic waisted skirts  (not sure of her measurements but she's a typical 10 yosize wise).  She also likes ribbon/fabric ponytail holders.

Boys:::::
(5) super hero fort kit -- any boyish colors/themes.  ****One of these kits needs to be from an allergen free home,  please let me know  if you have allergens  in your home so I don't  give it to them, thanks! ****
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396328/

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games

Another 9 yo nephew is really into Boy Scouts, so anything themed to that would be great.it seems like they go camping a lot

I have 3 nephews (6, 4, 2.5---- brothers******ALLERGIES****) that are into superheroes so different superhero masks/capes/cuffs/whatever would be hilarious

fabric chess set, anything but pink (if you don't have chess pieces, I would love checkers pieces made out of felt or something )  for nephew     http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773359817/

(unlimited) constellation shadow cards would be great stocking stuffers http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367809/

(lots) candy wrapper zip pouches from any kind of candy    
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395035/

I claim Watsonc7 for two coffee themed mug rugs. (1/0/0)

 Cheesy  Hi!  My name is Barbara (a.k.a.-LadybugsAndBumblebees) and I am married to a wonderful DH who supports my crafting.  We have three children:  19 yo DS, 11 yo DD, and a 9 yo DD.  I am a preschool teacher for 'at risk' students.  We live in New York.

I am in this swap in hopes of receiving items to gift to my family, friends, children's teachers, co-workers, doctors, etc...  I am listing some items here, but PLEASE check out my wist and pinterest (links in my signature) for more items, and photos of some of the items I am listing here.  The items I am looking for as gifts are on my 'Please Make Me A Gift For...' Pinterest board.

I'm going to post the items by type of craft to make it easier for you to peruse:

PAPERCRAFTS:
-generic winter themed cards for us to send during the holidays (i.e.-snowmen, winter trees, etc....)
-gift bows made out of magazine pages
-gift tags

SEWN:
-winter themed fabric gift bags in varying sizes (please no holiday specific ones)
-there are many types of keyrings listed on my pinterest...I would love to receive as many as you would like to send!  
-lanyards...again, great gifts appropriate to many people, I would love to receive as many as you would like to make!
-bowties for my 19 yo DS
-clothes and accessories for an American Girl doll (for 9 yo DD)


YARNIE:
-I have crocheted snowflakes on my pinterest...I received ten from someone in another swap, but could still use MANY more!
-lip balm keyring cozies
-crocheted/knitted mouse or rat for DH (he's an exterminator  Grin)
-a set of SMALL animals for 11 yo DD

OTHER CRAFTS:
-fancy headbands for 9 yo dd-made using the hard 'U' shaped headbands please (the fabric ones slip off her head)
-My 11 yo DD LOVES animals and wants to be a vet.  I was thinking if someone wanted to put together a "vet kit" that she could use to pretend with, that would be great!  Like a clipboard with a paper checklist that would include different types of animals she might be treating, with a check-off box next to each, so she could choose, a space to write what the animal was sick with, a space for her to write what she did to treat the animal, a space for her signature, etc...  *If different people wanted to make different parts of the kit and I could put it all together, that would be fine too.*
-cufflinks for my 19 yo DS
-some sort of holder for my 9 yo DD's Nintendo DS
-something Hello Kitty themed that would be useful and appropriate for my boss (I'm 40, she's older than me.  She runs the center I work for.  I thought maybe something like a Hello Kitty themed pencil holder, etc...)

*I am unable to take and post photos.  If you claim me, you will have to post the photos of what you send to me.  Thank you so much, it is GREATLY appreciated!*

**There are no allergens in my house.  Everyone but me in our house is SLIGHTLY allergic to pets.  I can receive items from someone who has pets, as long as the item and supplies are kept away from the pet.  PLEASE do not claim me if you smoke, or have smokers in your home.**

THANK YOU FOR CLAIMING ME!!!!!!  Cheesy
