I claim Eiseldora for some puzzles for her niece

3/0/0

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 a newborn baby girl. 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. Many of the items on my list are for other people. 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)
-- Lap Desk
-- Castle Building Block Stamps
-- Hooded Beach Towel Backpack

-- Dinosaur amigurumi no buttons please
-- Dragon amigurumi no buttons please
-- Fabric alphabet letters
-- Fabric growth chart - Growth charts I like - here and here (without the pompoms on the bottom)

Daughter Just born in Jan 2014:
I don't mind pink and girly, but things don't have to be either.
-- Crocheted Cupcake Hat
-- Crocheted Amish Puzzle Ball
-- 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.  
-- Fabric growth chart - Growth charts I like - here and here (without the pompoms on the bottom)

-- Crocheted/lace embroidery hoop for hanging earrings (maybe gray)

Mother-In-Law Birthday in August, Mothers Day:
-- A hand-stamped necklace for my mother-in-law with her three grandkids' names on it
I like these hand-stamped necklaces:

Other People:

-- Picture Frame Ring Holder (I could use a few of these)
-- Pom Pom Bookmarks - I could use a bunch of these in various colors.
-- Yarn bowl any medium. I like these: One and Two
-- Thread & Bobbin Holder/Display I would love for it to include a place for bobbins in the matching threads
-- Pattern weights

Extras:
-- Im collecting fabrics that can be used for I-Spy quilts for my kids and for baby gifts for friends and family. Both boy and girl images are appreciated. Duplicates are also okay since I plan to make many of these quilts. I need them to be at least 4x4. Here is an example of what Id be making.

I claim ActsofCrafiness for a lapdesk for her son. Actually, I will attempt a lapdesk & work with her if it turns out hidious Smiley

My name is Brandy. I am from Minnesota & a mom to 3 quickly growing kids. My 13 yo son will be 14 in March & my 11 yo daughter will be 12 in March. I also have a 10 year old son & a wonderful husband.

I hav some pinterest boards that will help alot too....http://www.pinterest.com/mmandjsmom/

My 13/14 son plays ice hockey, loves Call of Duty on his PS3, hopes to join the military (probably Army).

My 11/12 y.o. daughter is not very girlie at all. She also plays ice hockey & is the most aggressive on her team, but the tiniest. She also loves music & movies. She is growing up too fast sometimes, hates pink & girlie stuff.

My 10 y.o. son also plays ice hockey. He's a goalie. He's your basic boy.

I could use some fun stuff to add to Easter baskets for these 3 also. Not sure what, but I'll try to add a few things to by Pinterest board. Our high school & hockey team colors are royal blue, black & white, so just about anything in those colors are fun for the kids (and my husband).

My husband also has a birthday in March, but doesn't have time for many hobbies since he helps coach our kids' teams. He loves food & any down time he can find. He also loves beer from small breweries, so something made out of local breweries beer bottles or dealing with beer would be loved.

A gift for my mom, mil or grandma would be great too. My Grandma has broken her hip recently & needs a totebag for her walker (maybe like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/282389839104958158/). My mom has been the main caretaker of my Grandma for the past 5 months & really deserves a gift. All three wonderful women are crafty & passed it along to me.

My sister has a birthday at the end of February (turning 35) & loves fun scarves to wear with simple t-shirts & jeans/ khakis. Or a warm cowl (We will have snow for 3 more months here) would be nice.

My new year's resolution is to not buy any more fabric until I have used up LOTS of what I have. I am running out of solids, so some of those would be nice. I am also resolved to making 12 baby quilts for the local hospital out of my fabric.

I'll try to add more as I can.
