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.
