Welcome to the Ongoing Gift Swap Round 13!

As you guys requested here is the ongoing holiday list swap. However, since we're now going to try to make it a year long gift-giving swap I've decided to rename it the Ongoing Gift Swap.  But Christmas is nearly here you say. You're right, I wouldn't expect to get any items for christmas this year from this swap, but there are many days for gift-giving throughout the year! Think birthdays, Valentine's, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, hey, you could even get started on Christmas gifts for next year!!

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 sent and the organizer is notified with a dc# 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: OGS 13: questionnaire, OGS 13: 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 claim sheepBlue for a pair (maybe 2) of slippers

(1,0,0)

Hi!! I'm Melanie from Ontario, Canada. I'm a 36 year old SAHM of 5. My upcoming gift-giving days would be Quentons 17th (OMG!! 17?!?!?) birthday, Ethan's 8th birthday and Daysie-Lynn's 3rd birthday. Also Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day.  There are. O allergies at our house. Mi have a huge Pinterest, each kid has their own board too and I have a gift board. If you want to claim anything from there that would be awesome!

**if you want to! I think there's still enough time maybe to get a christmas claim out. My christmas list from last round is here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=428672.msg5127141#msg5127141

First is quenton, his birthday is march 13. He's a teenage boy so he's nearly impossible to craft for. He likes Drake, Deadmaus and other house/rap music. He likes purple or black.
- 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

I claim mama24boys for two (maybe three) jeans journals!
1/0/0

So, my list is mostly the same for now, but I am looking at this as the opportunity to build my gift stash, since I still will gift to all the same people throughout the year. Smiley

Hiya! I'm Molly, and I live in Oklahoma with my amazing husband and our pug, Cookie. Please pm me with any measurement/sizing or other questions.
ALLERGY: We are all sensitive to smoke, and my husband is allergic to cats-- if it's not specifically FOR him, it's totally fine Smiley.

A note on my multiple wishes: There are many things I'm requesting multiples of, in no way do I expect one person to take all of that on! Feel free to pick and choose whichever number you feel is fair.
An overall note: My peeps and I all love re-purposed/vintage materials as much if not more than new/storebought since they are unusual and one of a kind! Please feel free to incorporate those materials into any of my wishes. Smiley

**= I would super duper love you forever 'n ever!!

Stencil/Screenprinting/Painted T-shirt wishes

**For a coworker and others. If someone who screenprints using the photo emulsion method would be willing to make and send me a screen I own the image and text I want to use (I even have transparencies). It seems that I no longer have luck with burning screens successfully.

**For a coworker/friend. This epic beard tee, or something similar. He is a medium- large in t-shirts-- a long/tall medium is the best fit for him, he's super tall and skinny.

-(For me) Unicorn Tee with this phrase-- The more pastelly and magical the better! The phrase just stenciled and spray painted would be great, too. Ombre would be super neat with that method. Bleach stenciling, too! Pastel purple, turquoise, pink or mint green (on white for the neutral/constrast). I am a medium in T-shirts, a large in junior's sizing or fitted tees

-(For me) If anyone could do me a tee in mint green and white with a VW minibus on it somehow.... you would be my hero. Smiley Medium in T-shirts, large in junior's sizing or fitted tees.

-(For me) Black Lithographic type print of anything, really-- but especially hot air balloons, ferris wheels, old ephemera type ads/postcards, old pictures of cars or an art nouveau flower design. Inkodye is amazing, too!!

Sewing

**A travel organizer/caddy/bag for my mom's stash of Perle Cotton embroidery thread (still in long skeins). She loves purple, bright gypsy colors, cutesy owls and muted realistic nature themes-- leaves, branches, trees and sheep. Maybe someone can help me brainstorm a design? I have no clue or links!

**An apron for my amazing friend! She loves cooking and she doesn't know it, but she's a bit of a girly girl at heart-- I'd like to see something that incorporates some ruffles but sticks to her colors and understated glam but no fuss style. Think black and white/cream, gunmetal, tonal neutrals with some kicks of pattern/glitz/color. Very modern yet traditional and laidback.
This color combo and look is her to a "t"
http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/e1/7d/c0/e17dc0f6b1df886a280fe4786942e289.jpg

-(friends) Scarf necklaces all color combos-- or even just serged or zig-zag edged lengths of scarf strips would save me much time in making these-- I don't have a serger!
http://www.scarves.net/blog/diy-anthropologie-scarf-necklace

-(Mom/Dad/Friend) If you have an embroidery machine, I would love some embroidered pieces that I would give either as appliques or use myself on gifts to others (on pockets, journals, hats, etc).

   -"Mo Money Mo Problems" Bonus if it's cursive. Could use this one in a few different fonts.
   -"yeah, brah" for a guy
   - Tree of life/Aragorn's tree symbol
   - Owls-- especially in cute colors or tribal
   - Tribal elephants in bright colors
    -Ferris wheels or hot air balloons
(Maybe more if I think of it)

-(Me) A mixed media tee like one of these or inspired by it. I think these are great mixed media/Teesha Moore candidates. On white, gray, mint green, or mostly any color. I'm a medium in t-shirts, large-xl in fitted tees or junior sizing.
http://tinyurl.com/n2r5a6r

Jewelry

-(Co-workers/friends/me-- could use several) Long drapey necklaces with or without beads in all colors/finishes, but especially silver, seafoam, pine or all shades of green, MOP or pearlescent/white, copper, gold, brass, black, magenta, turquoise, any bright saturated color or jewel tone. Quirky is fantastic, so if you have quirky charms, or even want to make an assortment of mixing and matching that would be fab. Fabric, paper, fused glass, leather, wood, mixed media elements welcomed. Let the creativity flow!!
http://tinyurl.com/n3gkkc6
http://tinyurl.com/lwyw3wb

-**(Mom) Shawl pin. Something like this http://tinyurl.com/lxdnpvj or a leaf or a tree of life.

-(Dad) A manly copper cuff. He likes Celtic and tree designs.

-**(Dad) A manly belt buckle with Celtic or filigree designs. Bonus if it can have a J in the middle.

-(Me) Anything inspired by my jewelry board on pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/guacamolly/jewelry-and-hair-accessories/
         I really *love* jewelry and unusual accessories, so if you get a feel for my tastes and want to send me something you think I'd like, I love            surprises!

Foodie Wishes

(DH) Homemade Foods like beef jerky, hot sauce, spice blends. He loves trying new things, and while it doesn't *have* to be hot, he signs waivers for hot sauces, so, just sayin'. It definitely can't be too hot.



Paper crafting

-Some tags for a friend who is always making and giving jams, cookies and goodies away. Maybe even an assortment of sizes and even some small cards that could go on top of a pan of brownies or plate of cookies. I'd love it if they would say MO's MOlicious MOrsels that also leaves space to write what it is

-(Me) Business card and slightly bigger sized jewelry cards, mainly for earrings and bobby pins. Themes most desired: Kraft, white or solid cardstock with a black ferris wheel, carousel, typewriter, bicycle, text, flower, etc. Repurposed from other things is great, too!

- Boxes cut from cardstock (solid, kraft or prints) for me to fold and use for gifts. Maybe someone has a BigShot?


Misc.

**(Friends) A manly leather-like journal/sketchbook. I could use three. Bonus if it can have initials. Initials in order of importance: J (3 of them), S 
Some examples (doesn't have to be any of these)
http://tinyurl.com/nh6b7rp
http://tinyurl.com/paxzu7q
http://tinyurl.com/ne6osot

(friends/family) An assortment of headbands. Thin width, preferable with a little stretch, many styles would be great, but tribal or vintage trims especially. All colors/styles welcome. Please no FOE, unless it's for the stretchy part at the back. Other methods ie crochet are welcome!

I claim mama24boyz for Minecraft goodies for Ethan
I have some ideas I wanted to do for my minecraft loving daughter, so this will light the fire under me Smiley

1 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received

My name is Christy, I'm 37 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....I just can't keep up with all the sewing I want to do, blah!

I haven't totally decided if I want to keep my old format (by craft type) or if I'll change it up to BDays/holidays in order....so my list may change up later.  Both my and my husbands families live out of state so it will be awesome to get a head start on any kind of gift giving and I have quite a few things in my list that could go for many people in our huge family (yay divorces!)

EVERYTHING in my Craftster Pinterest is game, I update it often http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/   .

:::::SEWN:::::

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

Any cool Pincushions (I love the pincushion in an object idea and I have a few sewers in the family) http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/pincushions

(lots) candy wrapper zip pouches from any kind of candy  

My cousin is a kickin nurse so I'd love to get her an embroidered pouch, maybe pencil pouch sized to hold randomness in her purse, with this saying http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759230/

2 Stale bread embroidery on a medium sized lunch bag or tote http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773356985/

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).  It looked like the marlboro lights box painted onto fabric

This rainbow dash tote (would love it in a white or canvas color) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773892568/

Fabric bowls, love the fabrics in the pic, I know quite a few ladies who would flip for these
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773739904/

Toothbrush/paste bags as gifts for men, women, kids.  Big enough to hold the tall thick kids brushes and travel toothpaste
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773724263/

:::::YARNIES:::::

Crochet baskets, the color pictured or khaki, dark tan, off white/canvas shades (neutrals) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759210/

Would love any amount of knit fingerless gloves, any colors (except orange, pink)   Maybe  dark gray/red hearts, red/white hearts, or any deep colors http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759188/

Green Yoda hat for my niece (born in August).  They called her baby Yoda before she was born http://www.pinterest.com/pin/14073817558723651/

Amigurumi:
Gary http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773893797/

Guinea pigs http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773893089/
Rabbids (from Rabbids Invasion)
Minecraft characters

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

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

For SIL (bday in May) a North Carolina charm necklace like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773600843/

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

My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse (lil used suitcase from goodwill, or can use a coupon for wooden ones at michaels)...run with it http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773518660/

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

Hello Kitty duct tape or fabric tote bags for my 2 nieces (one claim at a time is fine) whatever size.  With their initial on the back, one "K", and the other "M" so we don't have any street fighting http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773556519/

A car wall display similar to this for my nephew (bday in June) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773539837/

Glass starburst sun catchers.  I would love any amount of these (could be in any colors and sizes, would make awesome gifts!) would need a small loop at the top so I can string them and attach a suction cup later http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773675238/

I also have some glass bowls on my pinterest, I love them all...especially the small water drop ones, they would be neat in white/cloudy or light blues for gifts
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773720068/

I (and my sisters) love clay and paper mch creatures, people, bowls (for decoration), etc so I would freak for anything inspired by this pinterest board.  I love creepy and/or cute, but not scary (no blood, guts, etc)...have fun with it
http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/clay-and-art-dolls/

Number stamped bags, would love numbers up to 31. I like how neutral they are so I can use them for different holidays or countdowns http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759171/

gift bags (vinyl, paint, fabric, whatever).  I could use any amount and size of any of these gift bags for holidays and birthdays throughout the year.  The first ones are neat with the "paper" on the bottom so my daughter or I can write the names on there.  Any other ones you can come up with that are eclectic or funny would be loved too
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/123004633542036767/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773765708/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773685081/ (use tag as label!!)
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773436953/

Altered altoid tins would be awesome...maybe with with little critters or silly creatures using the tins as their home

:::::WHATEVER MEDIUM YOU WANT:::::

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

Would love this unicorn mommy/daughter pic drawn/painted/embroidered on a medium/large lunch bag (or even just embroidered on a big piece of neutral fabric and so I could cut/sew it onto a bag myself).  I like the idea of a canvas or light neutral background and I love the black embroidery, just like it is http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773892604/

Taxidermy character heads in a cute frame (or I could frame myself if it's easier!) for example http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723772520377/
(crochet, fabric, paper mch, whatever)
My daughter loves :
**Fluffle puff http://mixermike622.deviantart.com/art/FLUFFLE-PUFF-277414155
**Gary, from SpongeBob
**Gumball http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/tv_shows/gumball/pictures/gumball-picture-2/index.html
**Rabbids invasion bunnies http://www.animationmagazine.net/tv/ubisofts-rabbids-to-invade-nick-in-august/

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.  She likes modern prints/colors or simple/plain.  I'm thinking any kind of wall art, stamped metal lyric snippets, hoopla, embroidered bag/pouch, iphone case, or ANYTHING functional or artistic 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)
Otis Redding "that's how strong my love is" (my song to her, awww)

My dad is the coolest funniest man I know. He's really into car shows, classic cars, and rebuilding his 1929 Model A (he's had it for 10+ years and I swear he takes it apart just to rebuild it).  He's got a wacky inappropriate sense of humor so adult content is fine.  Every year he finds us the coolest original Austin art/sculptures, mostly ones that reuse objects...his gifts are the ones that people remember when they leave my house.  His garage is the only space his beep of a wife allows him to personalize and it is the only place we like to hang out...its lively, it's filled with a lots of different/foreign beer, metal art, propellers, and pieces of cars hanging from the ceiling and every other inch.  He's really into anything different and simply neat. He collects 1929 license plates.  If you can come up with anything that he could add to his cool garage then I'd be a happy woman...functional or artsy wood, metal art (he gave my husband a metal pinstriped flaming pinup girl beer opener one year), anything 1929 and/or Model A related, or just anything different or really cool Smiley

I claim Isi for Felt masks

2 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
IsikkahJai for felt masks (claimed)
Mama24boyz! For minecraft stuff (claimed)

My name is Christy, I'm 37 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....I just can't keep up with all the sewing I want to do, blah!

I haven't totally decided if I want to keep my old format (by craft type) or if I'll change it up to BDays/holidays in order....so my list may change up later.  Both my and my husbands families live out of state so it will be awesome to get a head start on any kind of gift giving and I have quite a few things in my list that could go for many people in our huge family (yay divorces!)

EVERYTHING in my Craftster Pinterest is game, I update it often http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/   .

:::::SEWN:::::

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

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

My cousin is a kickin nurse so I'd love to get her an embroidered pouch, maybe pencil pouch sized to hold randomness in her purse, with this saying http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759230/

2 Stale bread embroidery on a medium sized lunch bag or tote http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773356985/

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).  It looked like the marlboro lights box painted onto fabric

This rainbow dash tote (would love it in a white or canvas color tote) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773892568/

Fabric bowls, love fabrics like the one in the pic, I know quite a few ladies who would flip for these
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773739904/

Toothbrush/paste bags as gifts for men, women, kids.  Big enough to hold the tall thick kids brushes and travel toothpaste
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773724263/

:::::YARNIES:::::

Crochet baskets, the color pictured or khaki, dark tan, off white/canvas shades (neutrals) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759210/

Rabbids (from Rabbids Invasion)
Minecraft characters

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

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

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

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

Hello Kitty duct tape or fabric tote bags for my 2 nieces (one claim at a time is fine) whatever size.  With their initial on the back, one "K", and the other "M" so we don't have any street fighting http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773556519/

A car wall display similar to this for my nephew (bday in June) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773539837/

Glass starburst sun catchers.  I would love any amount of these (could be in any colors and sizes, would make awesome gifts!) would need a small loop at the top so I can string them and attach a suction cup later http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773675238/

I also have some glass bowls on my pinterest, I love them all...especially the small water drop ones, they would be neat in white/cloudy or light blues for gifts
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773720068/

I (and my sisters) love clay and paper mch creatures, people, bowls (for decoration), etc so I would freak for anything inspired by this pinterest board.  I love creepy and/or cute, but not scary (no blood, guts, etc)...have fun with it
http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/clay-and-art-dolls/

Number stamped bags, would love numbers up to 31. I like how neutral they are so I can use them for different holidays or countdowns http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759171/

gift bags (vinyl, paint, fabric, whatever).  I could use any amount and size of any of these gift bags for holidays and birthdays throughout the year.  The first ones are neat with the "paper" on the bottom so my daughter or I can write the names on there.  Any other ones you can come up with that are eclectic or funny would be loved too
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/123004633542036767/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773765708/

:::::WHATEVER MEDIUM YOU WANT:::::

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

Would love this unicorn mommy/daughter pic drawn/painted/embroidered on a medium/large lunch bag (or even just embroidered on a big piece of neutral fabric and so I could cut/sew it onto a bag myself).  I like the idea of a canvas or light neutral background and I love the black embroidery, just like it is http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773892604/

Taxidermy character heads in a cute frame (or I could frame myself if it's easier!) for example http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723772520377/
(crochet, fabric, paper mch, whatever)
My daughter loves :
**Fluffle puff http://mixermike622.deviantart.com/art/FLUFFLE-PUFF-277414155
**Gary, from SpongeBob
**Gumball http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/tv_shows/gumball/pictures/gumball-picture-2/index.html
**Rabbids invasion bunnies http://www.animationmagazine.net/tv/ubisofts-rabbids-to-invade-nick-in-august/

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.  She likes modern prints/colors or simple/plain.  I'm thinking any kind of wall art, stamped metal lyric snippets, hoopla, embroidered bag/pouch, iphone case, or ANYTHING functional or artistic 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)
Otis Redding "that's how strong my love is" (my song to her, awww)

My dad is the coolest funniest man I know. He's really into car shows, classic cars, and rebuilding his 1929 Model A (he's had it for 10+ years and I swear he takes it apart just to rebuild it).  He's got a wacky inappropriate sense of humor so adult content is fine.  Every year he finds us the coolest original Austin art/sculptures, mostly ones that reuse objects...his gifts are the ones that people remember when they leave my house.  His garage is the only space his beep of a wife allows him to personalize and it is the only place we like to hang out...its lively, it's filled with a lots of different/foreign beer, metal art, propellers, and pieces of cars hanging from the ceiling and every other inch.  He's really into anything different and simply neat. He collects 1929 license plates.  If you can come up with anything that he could add to his cool garage then I'd be a happy woman...functional or artsy wood, metal art (he gave my husband a metal pinstriped flaming pinup girl beer opener one year), anything 1929 and/or Model A related, or just anything different or really cool Smiley

I claim watsonsc for some fabric bowls!
2/0/0

So, my list is mostly the same for now, but I am looking at this as the opportunity to build my gift stash, since I still will gift to all the same people throughout the year-- and I have some birthdays coming up in January! Smiley

Hiya! I'm Molly, and I live in Oklahoma with my amazing husband and our pug, Cookie. Please pm me with any measurement/sizing or other questions.
ALLERGY: We are all sensitive to smoke, and my husband is allergic to cats-- if it's not specifically FOR him, it's totally fine Smiley.

A note on my multiple wishes: There are many things I'm requesting multiples of, in no way do I expect one person to take all of that on! Feel free to pick and choose whichever number you feel is fair.
An overall note: My peeps and I all love re-purposed/vintage materials as much if not more than new/storebought since they are unusual and one of a kind! Please feel free to incorporate those materials into any of my wishes. Smiley

**= I would super duper love you forever 'n ever!!

Stencil/Screenprinting/Painted T-shirt wishes

**For a coworker and others. If someone who screenprints using the photo emulsion method would be willing to make and send me a screen I own the image and text I want to use (I even have transparencies). It seems that I no longer have luck with burning screens successfully.

**For a coworker/friend. This epic beard tee, or something similar. He is a medium- large in t-shirts-- a long/tall medium is the best fit for him, he's super tall and skinny.
http://tinyurl.com/lyrdpyc

-(For me) Unicorn Tee with this phrase-- The more pastelly and magical the better! The phrase just stenciled and spray painted would be great, too. Ombre would be super neat with that method. Bleach stenciling, too! Pastel purple, turquoise, pink or mint green (on white for the neutral/constrast). I am a medium in T-shirts, a large in junior's sizing or fitted tees
https://www.etsy.com/listing/118061917/always-be-yourself-unless-you-can-be-a?ref=market

-(For me) If anyone could do me a tee in mint green with a VW minibus on it somehow.... you would be my hero. Smiley Medium in T-shirts, large in junior's sizing or fitted tees.

-(For me) Black Lithographic type print of anything, really-- but especially hot air balloons, ferris wheels, old ephemera type ads/postcards, old pictures of cars or an art nouveau flower design. Inkodye is amazing, too!!
http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/lumi-process-allows-you-to-print-on-fabric-and-wood-using-just-sunlight-video-11-07-2012/


Sewing

**A travel organizer/caddy/bag for my mom's stash of Perle Cotton embroidery thread (still in long skeins). She loves purple, bright gypsy colors, cutesy owls and muted realistic nature themes-- leaves, branches, trees and sheep. Maybe someone can help me brainstorm a design? I have no clue or links!

**An apron for my amazing friend (B-day in January)! She loves cooking and she doesn't know it, but she's a bit of a girly girl at heart-- I'd like to see something that incorporates some ruffles but sticks to her colors and understated glam but no fuss style. Think black and white/cream, gunmetal, tonal neutrals with some kicks of pattern/glitz/color. Very modern yet traditional and laidback.
This color combo and look is her to a "t"
http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/e1/7d/c0/e17dc0f6b1df886a280fe4786942e289.jpg

-(friends) Scarf necklaces all color combos-- or even just serged or zig-zag edged lengths of scarf strips would save me much time in making these-- I don't have a serger!
http://www.scarves.net/blog/diy-anthropologie-scarf-necklace

-(Mom/Dad/Friend) If you have an embroidery machine, I would love some embroidered pieces that I would give either as appliques or use myself on gifts to others (on pockets, journals, hats, etc).

   -"Mo Money Mo Problems" Bonus if it's cursive. Could use this one in a few different fonts.
   -"yeah, brah" for a guy
   - Tree of life/Aragorn's tree symbol
   - Owls-- especially in cute colors or tribal
   - Tribal elephants in bright colors
    -Ferris wheels or hot air balloons
(Maybe more if I think of it)

-(Me) A mixed media tee like one of these or inspired by it. I think these are great mixed media/Teesha Moore candidates. On white, gray, mint green, or mostly any color. I'm a medium in t-shirts, large-xl in fitted tees or junior sizing.
http://tinyurl.com/n2r5a6r
http://tinyurl.com/ktonxqa


Jewelry

-(Co-workers/friends-- could use several) Long drapey necklaces with or without beads in all colors/finishes, but especially silver, seafoam, pine or all shades of green, MOP or pearlescent/white, copper, gold, brass, black, magenta, turquoise, any bright saturated color or jewel tone. Quirky is fantastic, so if you have quirky charms, or even want to make an assortment of mixing and matching that would be fab. Fabric, paper, fused glass, leather, wood, mixed media elements welcomed. Let the creativity flow!!
http://tinyurl.com/n3gkkc6
http://tinyurl.com/lwyw3wb

-**(Mom) Shawl pin. Something like this http://tinyurl.com/lxdnpvj or a leaf or a tree of life.

-Friend w/b-day coming up: Anchor bracelet(s) like Rox makes! Smiley

-(Dad) A manly copper cuff. He likes Celtic and tree designs.

-**(Dad) A manly belt buckle with Celtic or filigree designs. Bonus if it can have a J in the middle.

-(Me) Anything inspired by my jewelry board on pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/guacamolly/jewelry-and-hair-accessories/
         I really *love* jewelry and unusual accessories, so if you get a feel for my tastes and want to send me something you think I'd like, I love surprises!

Foodie Wishes

(DH) Homemade Foods like beef jerky, hot sauce, spice blends. He loves trying new things, and while it doesn't *have* to be hot, he signs waivers for hot sauces, so, just sayin'. It definitely can't be too hot.



Paper crafting

-Some tags for a friend who is always making and giving jams, cookies and goodies away. Maybe even an assortment of sizes and even some small cards that could go on top of a pan of brownies or plate of cookies. I'd love it if they would say MO's MOlicious MOrsels that also leaves space to write what it is

-(Me) Business card and slightly bigger sized jewelry cards, mainly for earrings and bobby pins. Themes most desired: Kraft, white or solid cardstock with a black ferris wheel, carousel, typewriter, bicycle, text, flower, etc. Repurposed from other things is great, too!

-(Me-- for gifts) Gift tags/little squares to write notes on the back! Holiday related or any time of the year is great. I would prefer for them not to have holes/ribbon.  Stamped, mixed media, repurposed maps, mod podged, anything is great. I really like these (Do not have to be this tag shape, I really like just regular squares a lot):
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/203084264416641223/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/21955116907472258/



- Boxes cut from cardstock (solid, kraft or prints) for me to fold and use for gifts. Maybe someone has a BigShot?


Misc.

**(Friends) A manly leather-like journal/sketchbook. I could use three. Bonus if it can have initials. Initials in order of importance: J (3 of them), S 
Some examples (doesn't have to be any of these)
http://tinyurl.com/nh6b7rp
http://tinyurl.com/paxzu7q
http://tinyurl.com/ne6osot
http://tinyurl.com/obg74tp

(friends/family) An assortment of headbands. Thin width, preferable with a little stretch, many styles would be great, but tribal or vintage trims especially. All colors/styles welcome. Please no FOE, unless it's for the stretchy part at the back. Other methods ie crochet are welcome!
http://tinyurl.com/mdana3j

http://www.radicalpossibility.com/2012/07/making-anthro-inspired-moleskine-and.html

(Mom/friends) Components for these amazing candlesticks. I think these would be great gifts for several people.

Hi, I'm Roxanne and most of you know Lana--my little 9 year old.  I would love to get some fun presents for her and for all the great people in her lifeteachers, friends, relatives this Christmas.  
Please nothing made with vinyl or items that have a strong scent.  Lana and I both get headaches from these kinds of things.  Things that would be really loved are in BOLD!!

Thanks in advance for crafting for me!

Wall art: yes I saw this on the gallery page but LOVE this kind of art:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653827748817/

For Grandson Logan: playdough accessories like the squeezers you put the pd in and it comes out in shapes. Thrift store finds are fine with us Smiley We love thrifting!
 
Daughter Krystina LOVES Darryl from Walking Dead and someone had a super awesome tote bag on craftster lemme look
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421442.0#axzz2lRCpPPeb  even a small coin purse would be a wonderful gift for her

Windchimes:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653824898213/

Anything crafted that is Peacock: one SIL loves peacocks and the old farmhouse they live in was owned by a family named Peacock so I try to get her fun unique stuff. Could be a hoopla or something embroidered that she could put out as a decoration or who knows?

For son Aaron: LeBron James stuff, he is such a big fan of that Miami heat player (LeBron even looked right at Aaron at a game he was at) Milwaukee Brewers, Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers Perhaps a wall hanging collage of these items would be cool for him. A collage of pics from magazines would be fun, for him or hubby (next line)

For hubby Mark: Same as son's but not the LeBron in it, the collage he would put in his man cave

I claim rscowtown for road trip pillows and some supplies. =) 1/0/0

I'm Kassie! I live in Idaho with my husband and our two little girls, Natalia (3) and Kaliah (8 mo). We just bought our first house this summer and keep busy with our at home business. I have a more contemporary taste.

My Girls: Natalia will be 3 on New Years Eve. Kaliah is 8 months. =)

--Pajama Monster http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182899115/

--Set of taggie fabric blocks for my baby http://www.pinterest.com/pin/46584177369154987/

--Buckle toy to keep my toddler happy in the car: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286183130260/

--Ready To Use craft Kits: I want my toddler to get more art time and less tv time but I dont always have the supplies or prep time needed to do some kids crafts with her. It would be so cool to have premade craft kits for her to pull out and theyre pre-cut, include instructions and supplies.

--Car Seat Blanket for baby. We live in Idaho so its cold for like 8 months of the year. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286181444557/

--Christmas Finger Puppets: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286183108490/

--Doll Diapers. Papa made a wooden baby bed and Im making a whole little bed set for her. Id love to add in diapers (especially because shes so curious when I change babys cloth diapers). http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286181817224/

Hubby:
--This pillow. I absolutely love this quote and we just bought a cozy home this year. You can even make it as a cover and I can get a form for it. Wink : http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286181962743/

Dcor:
--Reversible Wood Blocks http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182798659/

Other Family:
--My SIL would truly love me forever if I could get this apron made for her. (minus the tulle around the bottom) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180346505/

--Tri-fold Leather Wallet for my Dad. My mom says he carries quite a bit with him

--Crochet Hello Kitty hat http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286181310811/

--Soy candles are a huge hit with all the women in the family. I think most of them like warmer scents.

Supplies & Extras:
My big gift to myself is to learn a new skill. This year I want to try metal stamping. I dont have any of the supplies, so any of the essentials are game for a claim. Wink Im particularly interested in:
--Metal stamp lowercase alphabet 1/8
--Copper and Aluminum bracelet blanks for metal stamping
--Copper & Aluminum circle blanks 1-2

A lot of my gifts for my girls are aimed to pull together a new bedroom for them. I need two yards of this: http://www.onlinefabricstore.net/quilting-fabric/michael-miller-fabric/michael-miller-zoology-orchid-fabric-.htm and 4 yards of this coordinate: https://www.fabric.com/buy/0292568/michael-miller-diddly-dot-orchid

This vinyl so I can make this project for my hubby http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182803931/

Cold Process Soap Molds

Cookie Cutters We own one gingerbread man, so its pretty open. Wink

I claim klg_jlg for ready-to-make craft kits (1,0,0)

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 2 Breaking Bad etched glasses
I have some etching cream but haven't attempted it yet...fingers crossed!

3 claims  / 2 in transit / 0 received
Crazyda79 for BB etched glasses (claimed)
IsikkahJai for felt masks (sent)
Mama24boyz! For minecraft stuff for Ethan (sent)

My name is Christy, I'm 37 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....I just can't keep up with all the sewing I want to do, blah!

Both my and my husbands families live out of state so it will be awesome to get a head start on any kind of gift giving and I have quite a few things in my list that could go for many people in our huge family (yay divorces!)

EVERYTHING in my Craftster Pinterest is game, I update it more often than I do my lists http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  .

:::::SEWN:::::

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

Any cool Pincushions (I love the pincushion in an object idea and I have a few sewers in the family) http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/pincushions (thanks adrienne_bowers! )

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

My cousin is a kickin nurse so I'd love to get her an embroidered pouch, maybe pencil pouch sized to hold randomness in her purse, with this saying http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759230/

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).  It looked like the marlboro lights box painted onto fabric

This rainbow dash tote (would love it in a white or canvas color tote) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773892568/ thanks mama24boyz!

Fabric bowls, I know quite a few ladies who would flip for these
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773739904/

Toothbrush/paste bags as gifts for men, women, kids.  Big enough to hold the tall thick kids brushes and travel toothpaste
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773724263/

:::::YARNIES:::::

Crochet baskets, the color pictured or khaki, dark tan, off white/canvas shades (neutrals) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759210/

Would love any amount of knit fingerless gloves, any colors (except orange, pink)   Maybe  dark gray/red hearts, red/white hearts, or any deep colors http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759188/

Green Yoda hat for my niece (born in August).  They called her baby Yoda before she was born http://www.pinterest.com/pin/14073817558723651/

Amigurumi:
Gary http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773893797/
White rainbow unicorn http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773893785/
Guinea pigs http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773893089/
Rabbids (from Rabbids Invasion)
Minecraft characters
Nyan or even any adorable faced kitty

White bunny basket http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773991801/

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

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

For SIL (bday in May) a North Carolina charm necklace like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773600843/

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

My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse (lil used suitcase from goodwill, or can use a coupon for wooden ones at michaels)...run with it http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773518660/

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

Hello Kitty duct tape or fabric tote bags for my 2 nieces (one claim at a time is fine) whatever size.  With their initial on the back, one "K", and the other "M" so we don't have any street fighting http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773556519/

A car wall display similar to this for my nephew (bday in June) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773539837/

Glass starburst sun catchers.  I would love any amount of these (could be in any colors and sizes, would make awesome gifts!) would need a small loop at the top so I can string them and attach a suction cup later http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773675238/

I also have some glass bowls on my pinterest, I love them all...especially the small water drop ones, they would be neat in white/cloudy or light blues for gifts
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773720068/

I (and my sisters) love clay and paper mch creatures, people, bowls (for decoration), etc so I would freak for anything inspired by this pinterest board.  I love creepy and/or cute, but not scary (no blood, guts, etc)...have fun with it
http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/clay-and-art-dolls/

Number stamped bags, would love numbers up to 31, so I can have them for different monthly countdowns.  Of course, only a small set per claim.  It would actually be neat to have mix-matched little bags from different people in neutral shades (I'd prefer solids in mellow muted shades) So feel free to use different stamps or number fonts/sizes and same goes for the little bags http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759171/

gift bags (vinyl, paint, fabric, whatever).  I could use any amount and size of any of these gift bags for holidays and birthdays throughout the year.  The first ones are neat with the "paper" on the bottom so my daughter or I can write the names on there.  Any other ones you can come up with that are eclectic or funny would be loved too
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/123004633542036767/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773765708/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773685081/ (use tag as label!!)

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/480970435173998854/

Rabbids Invasion polymer clay figures

I LOVE everything about this cork heart hanging for Valentines day
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773399370/

Valentine mailboxes for mommy, daddy, and Jada
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723771937548/

Felted lil chick and egg (any amount--Easter gifts)
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773744615

 Altered altoid tins would be awesome...maybe with with little critters or silly creatures using the tins as their home

Zippered book clutches http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773981333/

Driftwood people/art http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773961265

:::::WHATEVER MEDIUM YOU WANT:::::

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

Would love this unicorn mommy/daughter pic drawn/painted/embroidered on a medium/large lunch bag (or even just embroidered on a big piece of neutral fabric and so I could cut/sew it onto a bag myself).  I like the idea of a canvas or light neutral background and I love the black embroidery, just like it is http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773892604/

Taxidermy character heads in a cute frame (or I could frame myself if it's easier!) for example http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723772520377/
(crochet, fabric, paper mch, whatever)
My daughter loves :
**Fluffle puff http://mixermike622.deviantart.com/art/FLUFFLE-PUFF-277414155
**Gary, from SpongeBob
**Gumball http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/tv_shows/gumball/pictures/gumball-picture-2/index.html
**Rabbids invasion bunnies http://www.animationmagazine.net/tv/ubisofts-rabbids-to-invade-nick-in-august/

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.  She likes modern prints/colors or simple/plain.  I'm thinking any kind of wall art, stamped metal lyric snippets, hoopla, embroidered bag/pouch, iphone case, or ANYTHING functional or artistic 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)
Otis Redding "that's how strong my love is" (my song to her, awww)

My dad is the coolest funniest man I know. He's really into car shows, classic cars, and rebuilding his 1929 Model A (he's had it for 10+ years and I swear he takes it apart just to rebuild it).  He's got a wacky inappropriate sense of humor so adult content is fine.  Every year he finds us the coolest original Austin art/sculptures, mostly ones that reuse objects...his gifts are the ones that people remember when they leave my house.  His garage is the only space his beep of a wife allows him to personalize and it is the only place we like to hang out...its lively, it's filled with a lots of different/foreign beer, metal art, propellers, and pieces of cars hanging from the ceiling and every other inch.  He's really into anything different and simply neat. He collects 1929 license plates.  If you can come up with anything that he could add to his cool garage then I'd be a happy woman...functional or artsy wood, metal art (he gave my husband a metal pinstriped flaming pinup girl beer opener one year), anything 1929 and/or Model A related, or just anything different or really cool Smiley

I claim Watsonc7 for some fabric bowls.

1 claim / 0 sent / 0 received

Hi! Im Jen. ☺ Im 32 and live in the SF Bay Area in California. My husband and I met at 17, and we have been married for 7 years. Im a stay at home mom to a very energetic 2 -year-old son, and Im pregnant with a little girl who is due in March. We have a huge red Doberman and three cats (who hide from the dog). I have crafting ADD, so I can do a lot of things but havent mastered most of them. I love the idea of giving handmade gifts, but its so hard to make it all myself!

Son - Turning 3 in May:
Loves cars, trains, planes, robots, rockets, space - no color preferences
-- "I Spy" Bag(s) - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044499281498/
-- Molded crayons - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171699804514843688/
-- Fabric Scrap Memory Game - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171699804513135429/
-- Hooded Bath Towel - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171699804513033328/

Daughter - Due in March:
We have all boy stuff. I don't mind pink and girly, but things don't have to be either.
-- Bibs (snap or Velcro closure)
-- Burp cloths
-- Hooded Bath Towel - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171699804513033328/
-- Ring Sling (with proper rings - not ones from the craft store) - If made in a print, I prefer something more modern. A solid color is okay too. I'd like something in black, gray, white, teal/turquoise or a combo of those for this.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171699804513048816/

My Husband Fathers Day in June and Birthday in August:
-- Handmade soap Any manly scent works, but I dont really like pine.

My Mom Mothers Day in May, Birthday in December:
-- I'd love to give her a hand-stamped necklace, either with her kids' names on it (5 of us) or with my two kids names on it. I like these:
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044500799176/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044500799181/

Sister #3 Birthday in November:
-- Jewelry, especially necklaces - she loves anything sea or nautical themed, the infinity symbol, geometric shapes, feathers - This is her Pinterest board - http://www.pinterest.com/Allie04/accessories/

Niece Turning 7 in May:
-- Rainbow Dash Tote Bag stole the idea from Watsonc7s list ☺ - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773892568/

Sister-In-Law Birthday in August:
-- This quote on something maybe as a print for her kitchen or on a notebook/journal - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044500892318/

Multiple People / Couples:
-- Zentangle Doodle Letter Art - I'd like these for a bunch of people/couples (you dont have to do them all though!). Easy geometric shapes are fine, but I'd like them to be drawn on good art paper so I can have them framed. Letters in order of importance are B (couple), M (couple), A (adult), S (couple), A (child - boy), C (child - girl)
Here are some examples:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/36106576@N05/5937368180/
http://www.pinterest.com/mariskadenboer/zentangle-letters/

-- Yarn bowl - I don't care what it's made out of. I like these:
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044499281244/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/28991991323842216/

-- Thread & Bobbin Holder/Display Its important that it includes a place for bobbins in the matching threads
http://creativehomemakers.blogspot.com/2011/01/sewing-thread-holder.html

Extras:
-- Fabric scraps I know this isnt a handmade item, but I am just starting to get into quilting and have plans to make some small fabric items. I don't have a nice fabric stash, so I'd love any scraps (any size or type) you want to get rid of.
