I claim ladybugsandbumblebees for a vet play kit!

Kirk- Kirk is the husbandhes a 42-year-old stay at home dad and former sports writer. Hes a tough one for me even after 10 years of marriage.
-Anything Pontiac. He owned a Fiero (his dream car) briefly this year, but it was short-lived due to his lack of mechanical know-how and budget.
-long sleeved t shirts or sweatshirts... the dude is always cold.
-Anything Green Bay Packers or Milwaukee Brewers Or even retro Milwaukee Bucks
-Anything baseball/football/basketball cards. He started collecting as a kid and re-discovered the love of collecting after his mom passed away.
-Anything related to sports history. This man is crazy for sports and has a brain like Wikipedia when it comes to sports history. Baseball is his all time favorite sport.

Nolan- Nolan is my son. Hes 7 years old and in second grade. Nolan has autism, so he doesnt necessarily respond to the world the way a neurotypical kid might. He is nonverbal and uses an iPad to communicate basic needs.  His birthday is also in December, so its always double-duty gifting month for us!
-Nolan loves fishespecially the koi pond in his school (he feeds the fish with a friend every day).
-A new favorite seems to be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Especially Donatello because he has a staff that spins (Nolans a fan of spinning things Wink)
-Fun shirtsespecially long-sleeved. I tend to put him in bold or bright colors so that I can see him easily when were out in public, and I love to put him in shirts that say goofy things or have some personality. Hes an awesome kid, and its often a good ice breaker for people. A shark or dinosaur hoodie would also be phenomenal.
-Dinosaurs are also a new favorite. It helps that T-rex cracks me up with his big bold scariness and tiny arms

MomMy mom is always kind of tough She doesnt have a ton of space where she lives and tends to be a clutter-free kind of a girl In general, I try to do practical things for her whenever I can.
-Un-Paper towels
-Kitchen towelsthe kind that attach to the bar of the stove whether they be crocheted on top or I know Ive seen sewn options These are the kinds of things she loves
-Yarn dish clothsmy mother loves washing dishes. I knowI dont get it either. But she loves a good homemade yarn dish cloth.
-Anything with the Laughing Buddha or other Asian inspiration Mom lived in Japan for 4 years right after high school while my dad was in the Navy She fell in love with the art and much of the cultural imageryespecially the Laughing Buddha (or Hotei as we grew up knowing him). Bonus points if you find any awesome rice crackers theyre a constant on her wish list.

JamesJames is my neices husband Hes a 24-year-old mechanical engineer and a bit of a know-it-all. I drew his name in this years round of Homemade Christmas (which we do every other year in my family), so I do have to make the bulk of his gift. However, I am on the lookout for some imagery of calculus/ physics type math either on fabric or that I can transfer to fabric that I intend to do some embroidery over the top of This would be a huge help if anyone has finished any classes with a notebook full of problems theyd like to have immortalized

AnnieAnn is my youngest sister (shes 41) and a grandma. Nolan actually has her name for Homemade Christmas. With kids, theyre required to do something homemadeeven if its small, but they are allowed to supplement with something they did not make themselves.
-Bookmark kits for Nolan to assemble-- Ann loves to read Nolan does just fine with things like stickers, washi tape, rubber stamps and other items that can be glued or adhered.
-Anything that says, My grandmas tattoos are cooler than your grandmas tattoos for her grandbaby (probably a size 9 months or so? Shell be a year by then but shes not quite in a 6-9 month size yet) My sister is the only of my sisters to be a grandma (despite having siblings 10 years older than her), so this would be fun.
-Something with a joke about red-heads or freckles would also be appropriate. Or wine. Or beer. Yeah, any of those
-Ann also loves Jenny Lawson (thebloggess.com). Anything inspired by Beyonce the metal chicken or pretty much any of her shenanigans would be awesome. And even if you dont find inspiration there, youll find some good laughs.

Coworkers- I am in an oddly structured department where I have 4 peers and we each have one supervisor... so yes, we're half peons and half supervisors.
-lanyards for ID badges
-mug rugs
-pretty scarves (we're all girls except for one guy)
-something with a joke for the only guy in the department that might stroke a little ego? I'm kind of art a loss on that one apparently...

Cats- Oscar and Frodo (yes... we're those people)
-cushions or beds
-toys for chasing
-Oscar's not a fan of catnip for whatever reason, but Frodo is.

I think that's it at this point. I do have many many other options on pinterest if anything jumps out at you!

I claim Nolansmomster for a bookmark making kit for Nolan and a Donatello tee and mask!
(Don't worry mom, I've got PLENTY of other ideas still to make for our personal swap!  Wink)

2/0/0

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. and even that only applies to Matt.

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 Rockmygypsysoul for some felt storyboards

3 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Rockmygypsysoul for felt storyboards (claimed)
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 (ladybugsandbumblebees)
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!) (rockmygypsysoul)

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  (rockmygypsysoul)

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

I claim watsonc7 for a Twitter-y bag and a bunch of little girl hair accessories!

3/0/0  (whoops, had left it at 2 but it is 3!)

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. and even that only applies to Matt.

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 rockmygypsysoul for a shark pencil case and fingerless gloves

1st claim, 0 In Transit, 0 recieved

Hi!  Im Melanie from Ontario, Canada. Im a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 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   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  
- 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/

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.

- 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

I claim mama24boyz for a couple of fused glass tree ornaments.  This is my first claim this round.  (1/0/0)

Hi, all!  I'm Tracy from Idaho.  Hubby and I have two college aged boys who are off to school and three furry family members.  We have lots of nieces and nephews and family is scattered all across the country.  I'm quite excited for this swap, and my list will probably evolve as we go along and get closer to the holiday season.  

I love that I can gift quality handmade items from the Craftster Community.  If you have a business card or tag that you use, I'd like to include it with gift packages, so would be very grateful if you would send it on along!  ♥


Things that would be great for lots of folks on the lists:

Handmade soaps - cold or hot process, not M & P.  Any scents you enjoy working with would be great - there are so many folks this would work for that I'm sure to be able to match your available scents with recipients preferences.

Felted Soaps:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698662/

These awesome charger pockets:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/

Baseball bracelets like these: http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694379/

This type of 'giving plate' for friends and neighbors - your own style/color/interpretation is welcomed!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694373/

Soup mugs:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639554658/

Love this bird's nest hoopla for my bro and sis-in-law, love the burlap, would need to have 4 pinkish eggs and 2 blue ones:  http://pinterest.com/pin/286682332503140541/


For some of the ladies - I could gift these lovely mittens to as many as seven folks on my list:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698632/

For my mother-in-law - she lost one of a pair of tree of life earrings that we had gifted her and they matched the only necklace she wears.  They should be silver, circular and a silhouette design similar to either of these: http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694402/    http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694433/

Also like these tree of life earrings as an alternative - for MiL or SiLs:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694426/

For my sis-in-law, J - burlap rosettes heart wreath similar to this: http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694362/

Also for J - Silhouette Cameo cover like this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694363/

For sis-in-laws in TX, CO, and FL - anyone do hand carved spoons?  http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand%20carved%20spoons  or rustic wood cutting boards?  http://pinterest.com/pin/66357794482703425/

For sis-in-law, M - would LOVE to give her some ammo jewelry, especially post earrings:  http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=swarovski%20bullet%20earrings

Ear cuffs of your design for older nieces and a couple SiLs, simple, clean looks are probably best:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694444/

Yarn bowls for a couple of crafty folks on the list: http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/    http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/

Would LOVE a hipsterish sock monkey for my oldest son - most important detail would be the bow tie.  This one is AWESOME:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694690/

Also, sock monkeys for the younger nieces and nephews would be awesome, too!  Girls range from 2 years to 9 years old.  Boys range from 4 years to 12 years old.  Fun girly motifs or horses or gymnastics type.  Boys play baseball and love the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Boston Bruins.

Looking for three weighted pin cushions with thread catchers and scissor slot for mom and two dear friends.  I received one in a swap from ehinders and they all love it!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694323/

ANYTHING in New England Patriots, Boston Bruins or Boston Red Sox motifs - jewelry or bags/pouches for the ladies and ANY guy things you might be able to dream up.  I have a difficult time with the guys.

Anyone do pencil sketches or ink drawings or any other subject art media?  Would love some framable pieces showcasing son's race car from this season, each of the boys, and even our fur babies!  Can send or email photos.

BIG, BIG wish:  My mom has a quilted book cover for standard size paperbacks -- you know, the trashy romance novel size!  She got it many years ago at a craft show and the poor thing is thread bare and barely hanging on.  She has not been able to find one to replace it because she is quite particular.  This one has an attached bookmark, a velcro closure and a little pocket on the front.  Any one who could create something like this in a bluish color pattern would have my forever gratitude!  

My baby brother is having his first baby...........well, his wife is, anyway!  We don't know if it will be a boy or a girl, but if you have any go-to baby gifts that you make, we'd love to add them to the 'baby to be' gift package!

And, perhaps a slightly off beat one - I have a twenty one year old nephew who is a Brony - if you happen to know what that word means and have any awesome ideas, PLEASE help a girl out!   Cheesy



AND............we donate and decorate a tree for the local Festival of Trees each year.  We are going with an Americana motif this year and would LOVE it if any of you would be willing to send along an ornament for the tree!  

I'll be updating and expanding the list throughout the day............in between actual work stuffs!  LOL

I claim GlassKicker for a girly sock monkey

2nd claim, 0 In Transit, 0 recieved

Hi!  Im Melanie from Ontario, Canada. Im a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 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   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/

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!

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 
- 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/

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

- Speaking of felt, this would be adorable for him and he would LOVE to be Santa!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513500840/

- a doll for her, any medium, sewn, crocheted, knit......

I claim mama24boyz for a pickle pal!!

2/0/0

Hi my name is Cindy... I'm 36 and live in Wisconsin with my favorite boys.

Kirk- Kirk is the husbandhes a 42-year-old stay at home dad and former sports writer. Hes a tough one for me even after 10 years of marriage.
-Anything Pontiac. He owned a Fiero (his dream car) briefly this year, but it was short-lived due to his lack of mechanical know-how and budget.
-long sleeved t shirts or sweatshirts... the dude is always cold. He doesn't tend to wear humorous shirts, but logos are usually fine.
-Anything reminiscent of toys of the 1970's... Kirk was born in 1971 and was an only child. He loves him some nostalgia.
-Anything Green Bay Packers or Milwaukee Brewers Or even retro Milwaukee Bucks
-Anything baseball/football/basketball cards. He started collecting as a kid and re-discovered the love of collecting after his mom passed away.
-Anything related to sports history. This man is crazy for sports and has a brain like Wikipedia when it comes to sports history. Baseball is his all time favorite sport.
-Kirk is also a distance runner. He's done two marathons and countless half marathons. Something to display medals on would be fantastic. Anything else related would also be awesome.

Nolan- Nolan is my son. Hes 7 years old and in second grade. Nolan has autism, so he doesnt necessarily respond to the world the way a neurotypical kid might. He is nonverbal and uses an iPad to communicate basic needs.  His birthday is also in December, so its always double-duty gifting month for us!
-Nolan loves fishespecially the koi pond in his school (he feeds the fish with a friend every day).
-A new favorite seems to be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Especially Donatello because he has a staff that spins (Nolans a fan of spinning things )
-Fun shirtsespecially long-sleeved. I tend to put him in bold or bright colors so that I can see him easily when were out in public, and I love to put him in shirts that say goofy things or have some personality. Hes an awesome kid, and its often a good ice breaker for people. A shark or dinosaur hoodie would also be phenomenal.
-Dinosaurs are also a new favorite. It helps that T-rex cracks me up with his big bold scariness and tiny arms
-a pillow with elastic straps to hold his iPad at an angle comfortably in its case would be awesome... like the as seen on tv ones, only not $29.95 and large enough to accommodate the giant impact resistant foam case that it's kept in. I can send measurements if needed

MomMy mom is always kind of tough She doesnt have a ton of space where she lives and tends to be a clutter-free kind of a girl In general, I try to do practical things for her whenever I can.
-Un-Paper towels-- these would be phenomenal
-Kitchen towelsthe kind that attach to the bar of the stove whether they be crocheted on top or I know Ive seen sewn options These are the kinds of things she loves
-reusable gift bags in any sizes and occasion (or generic)
-Yarn dish clothsmy mother loves washing dishes. I knowI dont get it either. But she loves a good homemade yarn dish cloth.
-Anything with the Laughing Buddha or other Asian inspiration Mom lived in Japan for 4 years right after high school while my dad was in the Navy She fell in love with the art and much of the cultural imageryespecially the Laughing Buddha (or Hotei as we grew up knowing him). Bonus points if you find any awesome rice crackers theyre a constant on her wish list.

JamesJames is my neices husband Hes a 24-year-old mechanical engineer and a bit of a know-it-all. I drew his name in this years round of Homemade Christmas (which we do every other year in my family), so I do have to make the bulk of his gift. However, I am on the lookout for some imagery of calculus/ physics type math either on fabric or that I can transfer to fabric that I intend to do some embroidery over the top of This would be a huge help if anyone has finished any classes with a notebook full of problems theyd like to have immortalized

AnnieAnn is my youngest sister (shes 41) and a grandma. Nolan actually has her name for Homemade Christmas. With kids, theyre required to do something homemadeeven if its small, but they are allowed to supplement with something they did not make themselves.
-Bookmark kits for Nolan to assemble-- Ann loves to read Nolan does just fine with things like stickers, washi tape, rubber stamps and other items that can be glued or adhered. Thanks RMGS!
-Anything that says, My grandmas tattoos are cooler than your grandmas tattoos for her grandbaby (probably a size 9 months or so? Shell be a year by then but shes not quite in a 6-9 month size yet) My sister is the only of my sisters to be a grandma (despite having siblings 10 years older than her), so this would be fun.
-Something with a joke about red-heads or freckles would also be appropriate. Or curly hair. Or wine. Or beer. Yeah, any of those
-Ann also loves Jenny Lawson (thebloggess.com). Anything inspired by Beyonce the metal chicken or pretty much any of her shenanigans would be awesome. And even if you dont find inspiration there, youll find some good laughs.

Coworkers- I am in an oddly structured department where I have 4 peers and we each have one supervisor... so yes, we're half peons and half supervisors.
-lanyards for ID badges
-mug rugs
-pretty scarves (we're all girls except for one guy)

Cats- Oscar and Frodo (yes... we're those people)
-cushions or beds
-toys for chasing (Frodo could use a little cardio... not unlike his mom)
-Oscar's not a fan of catnip for whatever reason, but Frodo is.

I think that's it at this point. I do have many many other options on pinterest if anything jumps out at you! I will try to expand and provide examples also!

i claim nolansmomster for yarn dishcloths for her mom

2/0/0

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 am claiming Lo{ve} for some small animals at her new baby board. This is my first claim.

Hello, I am Eszter from Hungary (Europe). I am living in Budapest (capital of Hungary) with my husband and my 2.5 years old son. We don't have any allergies, and I think, no one in my Christmas list. I am not prepared well yet, but I think, I can give you some ideas, what I would like to give to my family and friends. I might will upload more and more items, as soon as something coming to my mind.

Thanks!

My son:
He is 2.5 years old. I am renovating his room (we want to move soon from this flat, so we don't want to buy expensive things here). He has green walls, and a lot of stuff what I've made from our old jeans. So, here are some ideas what came to my mind:
 - SEWING: any type of denim stuffed animals (http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584812343698/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/276127020876276597/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/139189444705673751/ etc...)
 - SEWING: I would like to give him a big stuffed snake. Like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/28217935136611129/
 - SEWING: blue flower pillows: http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584811821128/
 - SEWING: cars, cars , cars :-) Like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584811821122/
 - SEWING: Art tote in blue colors. http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584811811226/

My Husband:
Anything with Jumpman logo: http://www.freshlyserious.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/jumpman-logo.png - he is a big fan of Michael Jordan, and I simply cannot buy any DVDs or books for him, I think, he saw everything about him already. I will buy some clothes for him, but if you have any idea with the logo itself, please take it Smiley
(no other idea yet, will try to update this list!)

 - SEWING: Patchwork kit for my mom. Any pre-cutted fabrics (bright colors), cutter or rouler would be awesome. She has a lot of fabrics, and has some inspiration, so I want to give her some help in that Smiley
 - Something like this for my mom: http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584811091480/ - she loves yellow, but I simply love it in any colors

 - Painted silk scarf. I was looking for some beautiful one of this long time ago for my mother-in-law. She likes red and brown, so something in fall colors would be awesome.
