Welcome to the Ongoing Holiday Gift List Swap! Round 12!


OK guys, this is the last round of the holiday list swap for 2013!!! Let's make it the best one yet! Let's make lots of amazing claims and get those trees overflowing with awesome handmade goodies!!  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 12: questionnaire, OHLS 12: 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!


If you want to participate, here is the information to send to the organizer.  Please have the title of your PM be the name of the swap.

Ok I really can't help myself. I'm going to claim texscrapper for a tacky party dress for her sister  Grin

(1,0,0)

Hi My name is Emma and I'm living in Michigan. I work full time at a bank and live with my long time partner. We do Christmas day with his family and I'd love to gift a bunch of lovingly handmade presents! Bolded wishes are big time wishes.  Cheesy


BIL - He loves zombies and death metal music. He's also very into survival planning, camping, legos, and making guitars.

Boyfriend - Ok guys help me out, he's always the hardest to get anything for...he is a huge computer gaming nerd. Loves obscure techno music, the movie Alien, Ace Ventura Pet Detective, fractal art. Also has love/hate relationship with Mt. Dew.

a computer desk blanket - He sits at his computer a lot and gets really cold in the winter. I'm thinking of a blanket that's sort of like a sleeping bag where he can get into it and then his legs won't be drafty...hard to find an picture to illustrate the idea though. PM if you have any questions about this one! Oh and he's 6'1" so it'll need to be longer to accommodate his legs.


Friend #1 - This friend loves and collects all sorts of "I love Lucy" stuff, goes on road trips to national parks and monuments all the time, loves going out to her rustic cabin, and has recently gotten addicted to attending as many local comic cons as possible!

For the whole Family

6 Tacky Christmas Crowns - Think tacky Christmas sweater except in a head-gear form. I didn't think of Christmas sweaters until too late but there's still time for a crown! Prefer if it was sturdy fabric base sort of like this pin example. Or make the bases for me and then send for me to decorate!  Grin 3 regular female size heads, 1 small/medium male head, 1 regular male head, and 1 large male head....maybe elastic for the back to accommodate all sizes?
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081720623273/

I claim sheepBlue for funny sign for friend's cabin and a shirt for SIL

Hi.  I am Brenda from Southern California.  I just celebrated my 8th wedding anniversary in September.  I have a 14 year old stepdaughter who we have full time.  She is a freshman in high school this year. I do not have any children of my own but have my two nephews and my best friend's 4 children who are all a huge part of my life. I love giving homemade/handmade gifts instead of store bought ones so this swap is just right up my alley.  And its easier to find things for the hard to shop for people. YAY!

**All the t-shirts or sweatshirts can be in any medium, no preferences.  Thanks**

I claim crazyda79 for a lap blanket for MIL

1 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Crazyda79 for lap blanket (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.

EVERYTHING in my Craftster Pinterest is game, I update it often 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).  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).

:::::SEWN:::::

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not a game changer!) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

Fluffle Puff plush!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773653997/

(2) car trash bags with vinyl insert
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=352363.0#axzz2e5GOLdhn

(unlimited) Fabric paper towels preferably in half size, but I'll totally take full sized sheets. Bonus for using three snaps a side and including the center snap roll --I've seen it on other tutorials, it holds the towels in the middle http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395335/

A large purse insert organizer (or the pattern and I will make it!) in neutral colors for my cousin.   http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Suzi_Purse_Insert_More/299/c50


any mug rugs inspired by or just like ones on http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/mug-rugs/


Button tree tote http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773598544/

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

(3) Incognito bag of disguises http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773409379/

(2) car toy bags
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773430200/

Lunch money cuffs (4 boys, 4 girls -- 7-8" from end to end)
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773436979/

I would love quiet book pages---a standard sized sheet of felt with any quiet book activity on it...ill take as many as I can get.  I will bind them myself after I have collected enough activities to make a book.

My cousin is a kickin nurse so I'd love to get her an embroidered pouch, maybe pencil pouch sized, with this saying (and maybe a Red Cross or something too) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759230/

Scrappy turkey placemats like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773615997/

Any amount or color of pattern pouches http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367731/

I saw a Marlboro cigarette zip pouch on craftster and can't find it again, if you know what I'm talking about I would love a few of those (and the link to it). It looked like the marlboro lights box, maybe painted on

:::::YARNIES:::::

Crochet baskets, any colors http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759210/

Would love a few pairs of knit fingerless gloves, any colors (except orange, pink)   I like the red with white hearts and maybe gray with white or red hearts http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759188/

:::::JEWELRY/STAMPED PIECES:::::

(Lots) Essential oil lockets (lavender, ylang ylang, lemongrass, patchouli, any pretty smell you like)... The lockets don't have to be that intricate, just pretty/cool http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773578212/

For SIL, a North Carolina charm necklace like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773600843/

This heartbeat wire necklace (my cousin likes small delicate necklaces) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759398/

Birthday stamped metal pieces (dates are on the link comments or you can message me). http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773765696/

:::::MISC CRAFTIES:::::

I have a bunch of tee shirts on my craftster pinterest board that I'd love to give my daughter/nephews

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

Hello Kitty duct tape bags for my 2 nieces, whatever size.  2 of them a little different from each other if possible (maybe one red and one pink bow? Or their initial in the back) so they know whose is whose http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773556519/

A car wall display similar to this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773539837/

I also have some glass bowls on my pinterest, I love them all!  I don't know the kind of work that goes into glass work so hopefully they aren't crazy wishes!

Advent stamped bags http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759171/

(Up to 5 sets of this) Minecraft lunch set.  Maybe a small tote bag instead of the backpack.  I would even take totally green plastic containers if you can find them (I can't) and I'll do the vinyl myself. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773640612/

Monster hand carved stamps, there are examples of ones I like on my pinterest board.  I would also love different monster bodies with separate eyes, mouths, appendages, etc so I could mix and match to make different monsters Smiley

A daily December scrapbook so I can plan our Christmas activities that month and maybe put a pic on each page.  Each day gets a full front/back page. I love this one (I love the mellow grey, red,silver, blue and white) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773765714/

Personalized gift bags (vinyl, paint, fabric, whatever).  Message me for names

ANYTHING Grumpy Cat: mug rug, pouch, hoopla, sculpture, art doll, anything!  

Any my little pony character heads in a cute frame (crochet, fabric, paper mch, whatever)

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773569017/  


My big sister loves Mexican art, especially Frieda, burning hearts, and crows (NOT skeletons!).   She LOVES the crazy bright colors.  For Mexican art she also really likes matchbox art, loves paintings/drawings/hanging art, and 3-D art.  She would also love sewn/embroidered bags or pouches, placemats (6 for her huge table) or a table runner in any of that theme. She doesn't want any more pottery.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773761049/

My little sister is CRAZY for her music.  I would love it if someone could make her wall art with Dave Matthews beautiful face on it her fav song is "Crash", but she loves them all. I'm thinking any kind of wall art, stamped metal lyric snippets, hoopla, embroidered bag/pouch (she doesn't carry a purse), iphone case, or ANYTHING you could think up that has anything to do with some of her favs below:
Dave Matthews -- her man crush
The Band "The Weight" -- her all-time favorite song
Logins and Messina "Danny's song"
Ben E King "stand by me"
The Cure "pictures"
Led Zeppelin "Thank You" (her song to me, awww)

I claim Watsonc7 for appliqued shirts for the baby girls on her list Smiley  (1,0,0)

I'm Summer from Texas. I am mom to 3 amazing boys 13, 8, & 8. We live on a ranch outside of Houston that has been in my DH's family for over 150 years. We raise and breed cattle and my sons show cattle all over the state of Texas.

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. Hobby Lobby is my favorite store - I have memorized the layout, and frequent it often Smiley I am a diehard LSU fan - we bleed purple & gold in our home, and when we are home on a Saturday in the fall, you can be guaranteed that college football will be on the TV!

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!
