I claim Brianna for some unpaper towels and a few other lovelies just for being a newbie Smiley

(2.1.0)

Hi, Im Jolene from Newick in sussex in England. Im a 37 year old nutty crafter with 2 gorgeous sons (kayden 8 and Ebbon 6), I also have a soul daughter (fostered) Helene who is 20.  We are quite a communal family and so I will include....... Loenja - 20 friend of the family, Mark Husband (should really have come first but hey Wink ), Simon B.IL, huuuuuge Mine craft fan. Roger - Huge bee keeper alongside my husband Smiley There is also Kate who im trying to get on here shes my bestest chum in the world.
We are a walforf family and the kids have no access to TV so no tv stuff for me please, were also pretty eco conscious so natural materials are always happy fabrics Smiley - If you cant buy new, Im a huge lover of upcycling.
I would love to receive things that I cannot do so, Polymer - crochet - paper crafts - neat sewing.

So - Top off the list, its the boys birthdays on the 31st March and the 14th April. We always have a joint birthday party and its a pretty big deal. All the guest play "carnival" type games to win prizes.

I would love love love some "Carnival" type toppers that I could use to make invites.
I have a pretty extensive pinterest but heres some choices for the boys....

First up, Id love one of these for the boys each. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003938589047/
and one of these each http://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003938589053/ (kayden loves rainbow colours ebbon more plain but bright.)
NEW NEW NEW NEW - If anyone is a dab hand with a sewing machine, the boys are desperate for drawstring back packs (No zips they are just tooooooo fiddly), preferably no patterns but bold colours or patchwork.

A rainbow beanie for Kayden, preferable slouchy he has a really big head and hats always pop off ! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/71846556528994602/
A rainbow recorder holder for his descant recorder, either crochet or fabric.
any leather bracelets like this. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/524950900286667956/ preferably with a wolf / American indian type theme.
Kayden could also do with a wallet as he is just being trusted with his own money. must have a coin pocket

Ebbon, is less colourful and more squishy ! hes just learning to read as they do it later in the steiner system so.
a nice wall art of the letters would be good - like this.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/276338127105370415/ but perhaps incorporate things that begin with the letters into the art work like A could be turned into an apple tree etc etc.
He loves personalised things so if anyone fancies drawing a little cartoon like image of him with his brother or with his cat, let me know and I can send you a photo.


Ok Helene, shes hugely into Native American pagan stuff as our family friend is a shamanic healer.
Natural feathers groups to go in her hair would be great ! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/337418197052911915/
She makes her own dream catchers but Id love her to have an unusual one like this
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/453737731177376478/
or like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003938591303/
this would also be a fabulous idea !!!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003938591316/

Mark - gosh its harder to point something for him.
He really could do with a slouch beanie, http://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003938608646/  must slouch though as like my son he has a big head Wink
I would love to write some poetry into a lovely book for him so If anyone fancies making me a nice romantic little A5 note pad that I can write in, that would be great.
We have batteries everywhere !!!! literally - so a little pouch to store batteries in would be good.

Ok everyone else.....
Im desperately trying to get Kate to come on here and do some stuff so a little girly hamper of small but decorative things would be lovely she would love these.....
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003937858318/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003936860354/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/329748003937187164/
shes very much an eco girl like me so little decorative things she can use to pretty up her new home would be lovely. Imagine walking into a magic forest and finding a fairies grotto - that's Kate Smiley

NEW NEW NEW
SIL - Big big big into Penguins and cupcakes, so anything on that would be fabulous. She has a cupcake themed kitchen and the rest of her rooms are themed penguins.
BIL - Hes into Mine craft (isn't everyone these days !), and hes an accountant, so personality wise not into tatt (You know what I mean no offence meant), Id love to get him some mine craft themed cushions - just the covers, I can stuff them.

EXCITING NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW
I was donated a barn in the summer and have been furiously doing it up over the last few months. It will house my womens groups (Im a psychotherapist) and as such I would love some meaningful bits of artwork / decorative bits / cushion covers - quilts (My that's a big ask !) to hold these lovely womens attention. I am collecting prayer flags of all different sorts.

Its easter coming up and we always go on a hunt. If you want to make little things for our hunt that would be great.

I always like pretty gift tags, Im HUUUUUGE on wrapping things up beautifully.

Hows that for starters hmmm

I claim rockmygypsysoul for magnetic paper dolls.

This is my first claim in this round.
1/0/0

Hi! My name is Melody. I live in South Carolina with my husband and our two daughters. I am mostly a stay at home Mom but still work part time as a Veterinary Technician. We live out in the country and love our animals. My 6 year old is a girly girl, and loves crafting. My 14 year old is a typical 14 year old. She listens to music, and is very picky about her clothes, hair..stuff like that.

14 year old daughter:
Sewn:
Cell phone holder. Any of these she would like. Actually my 6 year old would love one for her ipod too!
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/
Decorative pillows. She has new decor in her room. Any size/shape pillows or covers (I can stuff). In black, white, dark pink. She loves cheveron and sequins. She would love anything though! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666827236/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666827241/
San fransisco 49ers small purse, or scarf. I don't think she would like fleece but anything she could wear to school or otherwise would be good.

Other:
Heart dream catcher. Love it! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666894667/
Sparkly light switch cover, or basic electric covers(s). http://www.pinterest.com/pin/520869513124586122/   http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666912085/

49ers wreath something like this for the door of her room http://www.pinterest.com/pin/520869513123259828/
Maybe some 49ers jewelry.
Embroidery floss wrapped ear buds http://www.pinterest.com/pin/520869513123689222/
Nail polish organizer of some sort. She likes black, white, pink, and animal prints. Any medium you can think of would be fine.
Bath bombs, bath fizzies, bath salts. This girl is all about smelling good. She has tons of lotions though, so doesn't need any of those.
Her hair tends to be dry so if anyone happens to make shampoo or hair treatments, etc..that would be cool.
Shiny letters for her wall. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666912087/

6 Year old daughter:
Crochet/knit:
#1 wish of all for her. Baby guinea pigs. SHe squeals every time she sees these and I would LOVE to be able to give her a few for Easter or her birthday! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667047937/

Disney dress, tutu, shirt....anything. We are going to DIsney this Summer and she would LOVE to have something cute to wear. She loves Princesses, especially the little mermaid, the one from tangled, Cinderella, and Minnie mouse. A simple little sundress would be great. Anything really.
Veternarian lab coat or smock, or vet kit of some kind:  I am a vet tech so she loves to "play vet" http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666903766/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666903768/
Adorable little sewn doll http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666766595/

Knitting loom. She has a knitting doll and is wanting something bigger to make hats or scarves on maybe. I'm not sure if these can be made, or maybe someone has an extra lying around?

Dog tags, any style. I can provide name(s) and numbers.
Homemade dog soap, shampoo, whatever.
I have a little Pekingese that would love a jacket or sweater. Smiley
Horse treats. Our horses LOVE treats!
Any little dog bed would be totally loved.
I have an elderly dog is is diabetic, and blind. I can use more belly bands because he gets confused at times and tinkles. I have a couple, but any more would be great. They are easy to make. Color doesn't matter. I can give you the measurements if you decide to choose this.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666891711/

My husband. He is hard to think of things for.
Simple leather wallet:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769160/
Some kind of zombie or Walking Dead mug.
He has been wanting a warm stocking hat. Maybe a double knit or crochet lined with fleece? My step mom made him a crochet one but it has the "holes" in it and he says it's not very warm. He likes navy, or dark gray..just nothing "loud". He loves Carolina Panters so something with those colors would work too.
Shaving soap for men would be neat.

My Mom:
Windchimes..any kind
All season wreath. I think she would like these but doesn't have to be just like any of these. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/108297566009960134/ (I love this one myself!)
Something simple like this but minus the feathers and with an "S" http://www.pinterest.com/pin/130041507960111391/
Homemade wax melts.
Kitchen towels.. either of these are cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769227/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769237/

I claim aunty.hela for taggy toys - Due 2/9

3/2/0

Hi! Im Jen. Im 32 and live in the SF Bay Area in California. 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 am a homebody and enjoy crafting, reading, cooking, baking, and watching more TV and movies than I should. My husband and I are currently trying to get caught up on Dr. Who. I have crafting ADD, so I can do a lot of things but havent mastered most of them - yet. 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/
-- Hooded Bath Towel - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171699804513033328/
-- Fabric Growth Chart - I like these: http://spoonful.com/crafts/diy-growth-charts?cmp=NLC-NL#carousel-id=photo-carousel&carousel-item=4
https://www.etsy.com/listing/108321909/growth-chart-boy-made-to-order (without the pompoms on the bottom)
-- Fabric alphabet letters - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044499281340/
-- Dinosaur amigurumi no buttons please
-- Dragon amigurumi no buttons please
-- Lap Desk - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044499281463/

Daughter - Due in March:
We have all boy stuff. I don't mind pink and girly, but things don't have to be either.
-- Crocheted Converse - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044499290889/
-- Burp cloths
-- Baby Bath Apron Towel - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044501153490/
-- 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: - Thanks rockmygypsysoul!
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044500799176/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044500799181/
-- Wonder Woman Apron - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171699804513058503/

Sister #2 - Birthday in January:
-- Crocheted lace embroidery hoop for hanging earrings (a rich purple would be nice) - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/74309462571986766/
-- Alcohol Ink Dyed Coasters (turquoise & lime green) - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044499281394/

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/ - Thanks adrienne_bowers!
-- Knit boot cuffs, any style, neutral colors are best - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/61009769923719491/
-- Crocheted lace embroidery hoop for hanging earrings (turquoise or like the blue pictured) - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/74309462571986766/

Niece Turning 7 in May:
-- Rainbow Dash Tote Bag stole the idea from Watsonc7s list ☺ - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773892568/
-- Rainbow Scarf - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/292734044501023628/

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/
-- Crocheted lace embroidery hoop for hanging earrings (maybe gray) - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/74309462571986766/

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.

I claim Actsofcraftiness for baby bath apron towel.

1/1/0

Hi! My name is Melody. I live in South Carolina with my husband and our two daughters. I am mostly a stay at home Mom but still work part time as a Veterinary Technician. We live out in the country and love our animals. My 6 year old is a girly girl, and loves crafting. My 14 year old is a typical 14 year old. She listens to music, and is very picky about her clothes, hair..stuff like that.

14 year old daughter:
Sewn:
Cell phone holder. Any of these she would like. Actually my 6 year old would love one for her ipod too!
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/
Decorative pillows. She has new decor in her room. Any size/shape pillows or covers (I can stuff). In black, white, dark pink. She loves cheveron and sequins. She would love anything though! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666827236/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666827241/
Bathing suit cover up. Women's small any of these are cute
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/452682200016826752/ Not that color


Crochet/knit:
Faux taxidermy. She loves this one! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/520869513124586169/


Other:
Heart dream catcher. Love it! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666894667/

49ers wreath something like this for the door of her room http://www.pinterest.com/pin/520869513123259828/
Embroidery floss wrapped ear buds http://www.pinterest.com/pin/520869513123689222/
Bath bombs, bath fizzies, bath salts. This girl is all about smelling good. She has tons of lotions though, so doesn't need any of those.
Her hair tends to be dry so if anyone happens to make shampoo or hair treatments, etc..that would be cool.
Shiny letters for her wall. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666912087/
Funky font letters..painted or modge poged..with her name (of course) black, white, pink..something like this.. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/273523377338984343/
Any kind of rug for her doorway..with either dark pink, white, black or a combination...painted, fuzzy, fluffy, woven..whatever.

Both girls..anything that I can put in their Easter baskets.

6 Year old daughter:
Crochet/knit:
#1 wish of all for her. Baby guinea pigs. SHe squeals every time she sees these and I would LOVE to be able to give her a few for Easter or her birthday! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667047937/Pug stuffie..this could be crocheted or sewn. She loves pugs!!
So cute. She would love little knitted animals. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666682744/

Sewn:
Pug! Stuffie, or anything with a pug on it! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/212654413624838921/
Ruffle dress. She wears a 6x or 7. Short sleeve would be fine. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741477/
Mermaid doll. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666730655/
Disney dress, tutu, shirt....anything. We are going to DIsney this Summer and she would LOVE to have something cute to wear. She loves Princesses, especially the little mermaid, the one from tangled, Cinderella, and Minnie mouse. A simple little sundress would be great. Anything really.
Veternarian lab coat or smock, or vet kit of some kind:  I am a vet tech so she loves to "play vet" http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666903766/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666903768/
Adorable little sewn doll http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666766595/

Other:
DIsney T shirt. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665298970/
Any cute hair bows. She loves hair bows. Disney or DIsney colors would be a plus but definitely not neccessary.
Peg people. Especialy princesses or cats/dogs.
Knitting loom. She has a knitting doll and is wanting something bigger to make hats or scarves on maybe. I'm not sure if these can be made, or maybe someone has an extra lying around?
Something to hold her hair bows. These are some cute ones. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/58124651414113166/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/37506609369455891/
Hoop for her room. Some that she likes: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/258816309809426273/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/65020788343827808/  She also likes unicorns, rainbows, and kittens so any hoop with any of those things would be cool.
Peg people. Any really...people, pets, princesses.
She is having an Alice in Wonderland/ mad hatter themed birthday party in April. ANYTHING for the party would be welcome. Invites, decorations, party favors, something for her to wear for the party.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665188959/ I want to make a wreath similar to this. It's not going to look like that (I wish) but anything to go on the wreath. Any colorful balls similar to those, the hat, flowers...anything on the wreath that I could add to it would be GREAT. This is going to be up for all of April, not just for the party.


Me!
Knitted/Crocheted
Any washclothes, scrubbies, dishclothes, dish scrubbies.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986663131686/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/15481192441051629/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/142707881914028814/
Coffee cup cozy. I love my coffee!

Sewn:
Potholders. I can always use some new, cute potholders.
Napkins, any kind really. I like dark reds, oranges, warm yellow, turquoise, lime green (but not too bright)..one that goes well with turquoise.
Placemats ..this can be any medium and I am not picky. Not sure what color but if you decide to do these, I'll give you some color ideas.

Other:
Sage bundles, or whatever to go in a campfire. I love the idea of this..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666347328/
Anything for camping would be cool. We camp a good bit. Fire starters, home made bug repellant, whatever you can think of.
Home made cleaning supplies. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667289745/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665247431/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666307777/
Anything to decorate my living room, kitchen, or dining room.  I need stuff bad. Wall art, vases, maybe a centerpiece for my table. I am leaning towards a medium/dark turquoise and maybe a green..like this
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667312543/
Throw pillows. I can stuff then, colors I like are anything that can go with this. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667312543/
Some kind of big, tall, candle holders or anything I can use to decorate and add height to my corner fireplace in the dining room.
Coffee..local coffee maybe? I love coffee! Cheesy
Some homespun yarn, or a spindle...I don't know. I'd like to learn to spin so anything that I may use trying to do that.
These are supplies but any old uneeded knitting books, or needles, or yarn. Cocoa butter, beeswax, essential oils, hoops, bentonite clay, stitch markers for my knitting.
Maybe some things that I can use to make wreaths..Maybe some burlap flowers http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667325496/ or any flowers or accessories you can think of. I would like to make an all season wreath, Easter, Fall, Christmas, and Halloween so anything for any of these.
 http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665188959/ I want to make a wreath similar to this. It's not going to look like that (I wish) but anything to go on the wreath. Any colorful balls similar to those, the hat, flowers...anything on the wreath that I could add to it would be GREAT. This is going to be up for all of April, not just for the party.


Pets! They are a part of our family and we love spoiling them.
Dog collar or collars:  Some that we like  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667289590/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667289590/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666750139/
Leather collars are awesome also.
Dog tags, any style. I can provide name(s) and numbers.
Homemade dog soap, shampoo, whatever.
I have a little Pekingese that would love a jacket or sweater. Smiley
Horse treats. Our horses LOVE treats!
Any little dog bed would be totally loved.
I have an elderly dog is is diabetic, and blind. I can use more belly bands because he gets confused at times and tinkles. I have a couple, but any more would be great. They are easy to make. Color doesn't matter. I can give you the measurements if you decide to choose this.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666891711/

My husband. He is hard to think of things for.
Simple leather wallet:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769160/
Some kind of zombie or Walking Dead mug.
He has been wanting a warm stocking hat. Maybe a double knit or crochet lined with fleece? My step mom made him a crochet one but it has the "holes" in it and he says it's not very warm. He likes navy, or dark gray..just nothing "loud". He loves Carolina Panters so something with those colors would work too.
Shaving soap for men would be neat.

My Mom:
Windchimes..any kind
All season wreath. I think she would like these but doesn't have to be just like any of these. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/108297566009960134/ (I love this one myself!)
Something simple like this but minus the feathers and with an "S" http://www.pinterest.com/pin/130041507960111391/
Homemade wax melts.
Kitchen towels.. either of these are cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769227/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769237/
