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/
White rainbow unicorn http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773893785/
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/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/480970435173998854/

I LOVE everything about this cork heart hanging for Valentines day

Felted lil chick and egg (any amount--Easter gifts)

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

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

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

:::::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://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!

(I made a scarf for my daughter Krystina in about 8 diff colors, and for trick or treat everyone wanted to know where she got it)

1/0/0

Hi I'm Laurel from Wisconsin. Married to Mark for 30 years, mom to a boy almost 21 and girl 26 and grandma to an almost 4 year old. We have 3 rescued dachshunds, I love the old ugly ones that no one wants or ones with no teeth or had back surgery.

** Please pm me if you find something on my pin boards that isn't listed below, sometimes I pin stuff for ideas but may have already made the item and forgotten to mark it lol

WISHLIST STUFF:

Knitted items: I can cast on but thats about it, so I have a few things so far in my knit wish list

Scarf  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653827683566/

a flat rat knit scarf http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653827742226/
(ok its odd, but it caught my eye)

grey fox scarf http://www.pinterest.com/pin/276689970830074937/

any color knit socks, use up leftover scraps is wonderful, they don't match, that's even better Smiley

Travel Pillows:  would love up to 4 of these http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653827352416/

Prayer flags: here are a few example pins
http://www.pinterest.com/rscowtown/sewing-fabric-flowers/

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/571112796466973750/

a post on craftster  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=420768.0#axzz2lRCpPPeb

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

Crochet tree scarf: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653827684891/

solid fat quarters: have a zillion prints, but not enough solids when I need em lol

Butttons:  any color, would prefer with holes in them vs the thingy on the back, but those do work fine too

Keys: im searching for keys to make these:
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653826478297/

Sea Glass: with holes to make mobiles/suncatchers

Thread: neon sewing thread on spool, any neon color (saw them at walmart, just sayin')

Metal stamping disks: I have an alphabet set and the hammer, just need the disks to tap on

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.

--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/

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/165577723773436953/
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
