Welcome to the Ongoing Holiday Gift List Swap! Round 11!


We know it's early, but it's never too soon to start thinking of holiday gifts!  This the place to help your fellow Craftster narrow down their holiday gift lists.  This swap welcomes every winter holiday including Christmas, Hanukah/Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, etc.  If you want a handmade holiday for your friends and family, this is the place to get help on your list.  From grandma to your own kids, your lists can include almost anyone in your life that you might need a little help crafting for - even yourself!.   Please read through this initial post carefully before joining and PM me with any questions.

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 received and the organizer is notified, 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: OHLS 11: questionnaire, OHLS 11: 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!

First up is bunny1kenobi!!

This is my second claim, nothing sent yet.


Hi! I’m Deanna from Arizona.  My list is not as long as some, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!  Ha!  We have a couple dogs but they are almost always outside and don’t craft with me.  We have a non-smoking home.
Here’s my list! As far as allergies go, my husband is deathly allergic to rabbits, so please avoid rabbit contact with anything you send!!  Other than that, we have a tree nut allergy in my home, and asthma which is sometimes triggered by cigarette smoke smell.

Or anything from my pinterest is fair game: http://www.pinterest.com/nisforneville/boards/

I claim nisforneville for a captain America Ami and a swiffer cover

Hi!  I’m Melanie from Ontario, Canada. I’m a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  I’m sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course   http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/

- A cute chapstick holder would be nice, whether its for one to hang on a keychain or something for multiple to go in her purse

Love this Christmasy wreath http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199511189104/

A Christmas tree skirt, doesn't have to be totally Christmasy, but it can be, but I also like just a blue/silver or purple/silver, or something cute and Christmasy

Again, I have a HUGE pinterest!  If you see something that strikes you, that'd be awesome!!

I claim mama24boyz for the stamped Madden pendant for Nat.  This is my first claim this round.  (1/0/0)

Hi, all!  I'm Tracy from Idaho.  Hubby and I have two college aged boys who are off to school and three furry family members.  We have lots of nieces and nephews and family is scattered all across the country.  I'm quite excited for this swap, and my list will probably evolve as we go along and get closer to the holiday season. 

I love that I can gift quality handmade items from the Craftster Community. If you have a business card or tag that you use, I'd like to include it with gift packages, so would be very grateful if you would send it on along!  ♥


Things that would be great for lots of folks on the lists:

Handmade soaps - cold or hot process, not M & P.  Any scents you enjoy working with would be great - there are so many folks this would work for that I'm sure to be able to match your available scents with recipients preferences.

Felted Soaps:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698662/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698662/)

These awesome charger pockets:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/)

Baseball bracelets like these:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694379/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694379/)

This type of 'giving plate' for friends and neighbors - your own style/color/interpretation is welcomed!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694373/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694373/)

Soup mugs:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639554658/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639554658/)

Love this bird's nest hoopla for my bro and sis-in-law, love the burlap, would need to have 4 pinkish eggs and 2 blue ones:  http://pinterest.com/pin/286682332503140541/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/286682332503140541/)


For some of the ladies - I could gift these lovely mittens to as many as seven folks on my list:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698632/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698632/)


For my sis-in-law, J - burlap rosettes heart wreath similar to this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694362/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694362/)

Also for J - Silhouette Cameo cover like this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694363/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694363/)

For sis-in-laws in TX, CO, and FL - anyone do hand carved spoons?  http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand%20carved%20spoons (http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand%20carved%20spoons)  or rustic wood cutting boards?  http://pinterest.com/pin/66357794482703425/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/66357794482703425/)


Ear cuffs of your design for older nieces and a couple SiLs, simple, clean looks are probably best:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694444/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694444/)

Yarn bowls for a couple of crafty folks on the list:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/)    http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/)

Would LOVE a hipsterish sock monkey for my oldest son - most important detail would be the bow tie.  This one is AWESOME:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694690/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694690/)

Also, sock monkeys for the younger nieces and nephews would be awesome, too!  Girls range from 2 years to 9 years old.  Boys range from 4 years to 12 years old.  Fun girly motifs or horses or gymnastics type.  Boys play baseball and love the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Boston Bruins.

In either this swap or the OWS last month, someone received a taggie dinosaur made from New England Patriots fabric - HUGE wish for the soon to be new niece or nephew!!!

Looking for three weighted pin cushions with thread catchers and scissor slot for mom and two dear friends.  I received one in a swap from ehinders and they all love it!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694323/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694323/)

ANYTHING in New England Patriots, Boston Bruins or Boston Red Sox motifs - jewelry or bags/pouches for the ladies and ANY guy things you might be able to dream up.  I have a difficult time with the guys.

Anyone do pencil sketches or ink drawings or any other subject art media?  Would love some framable pieces showcasing son's race car from this season, each of the boys, and even our fur babies!  Can send or email photos.

BIG, BIG wish:  My mom has a quilted book cover for standard size paperbacks -- you know, the trashy romance novel size!  She got it many years ago at a craft show and the poor thing is thread bare and barely hanging on.  She has not been able to find one to replace it because she is quite particular.  This one has an attached bookmark, a velcro closure and a little pocket on the front.  Any one who could create something like this in a bluish color pattern would have my forever gratitude! 

My baby brother is having his first baby...........well, his wife is, anyway!  We don't know if it will be a boy or a girl, but if you have any go-to baby gifts that you make, we'd love to add them to the 'baby to be' gift package!

AND............we donate and decorate a tree for the local Festival of Trees each year.  We are going with an Americana motif this year and would LOVE it if any of you would be willing to send along an ornament for the tree!

I claim Glasskicker for wall charger pockets

1 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received

Glasskicker for wall charger pockets (claimed)

My name is Christy 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.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas so if you want to craft something from there  please PM me first to make sure it is still available (I'm in the ongoing wishlist swap as well).  Also, feel free to check out my other pinterest boards because they are full of projects I probably won't do myself dangit http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/ 

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  I'm totally using this list as my personal gift-giving list as well, so if I get a chance to sew things off this list myself I will be taking them off. There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse, run with it http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773518660/

Also, this knitted minecraft hat, the tutorial is a perfect size 8 I think
http://www.craftcaravan.com/knitted-minecraft-creeper-hat.

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

GRANDPARENTS
GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church.

Mawmaw: She's an adorable, active,  social lil wino lol. She's in a group called the Ya-Ya's that travel and eat out together a lot so I would LOVE anything you can come up with that incorporates any of that.   

Etched wine glasses for my Mawmaw, she loves her wine! Something funny like her favorite saying "big girl at night, big girl in the morning" or "it's wine-o-clock" or something like this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395164/

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games  (Mario, skylanders, kerbey, etc)

Another 9 yo nephew is really into Boy Scouts, so anything themed to that would be great….it seems like they go camping a lot.   He's also really into science and building contraptions, so any kinds of kits you can throw together would be great (I saw a contraption kit on pinterest, I'll try to find the link...)

I have 3 nephews (6, 4, 2.5---- brothers******ALLERGIES****) that are into superheroes so different superhero masks/capes/cuffs/shoe-wings/whatever would be hilarious

fabric chess set, anything but pink (if you don't have chess pieces, I would love checkers pieces made out of felt or something )  for nephew     http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773359817/

Claiming Watsonc7 for "Mug Rugs: wine-themed for Mawmaw"

This is my 1st claim  / 0 in transit / 0 received

Hello, I am Eszter from Hungary (Europe). I am living in Budapest (capital of Hungary) with my husband and my 2.5 years old son. We don't have any allergies, and I think, no one in my Christmas list. I am not prepared well yet, but I think, I can give you some ideas, what I would like to give to my family and friends. I might will upload more and more items, as soon as something coming to my mind.

Thanks!



My son:
He is 2.5 years old. I am renovating his room (we want to move soon from this flat, so we don't want to buy expensive things here). He has green walls, and a lot of stuff what I've made from our old jeans. So, here are some ideas what came to my mind:
 - SEWING: any type of denim stuffed animals (http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584812343698/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/276127020876276597/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/139189444705673751/ etc...)
 - SEWING: I would like to give him a big stuffed snake. Like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/28217935136611129/

- CROCHETING: playing rug like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/32158584812615751/ (It can be sewn as well!)

My Husband:
Anything with Jumpman logo: http://www.freshlyserious.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/jumpman-logo.png - he is a big fan of Michael Jordan, and I simply cannot buy any DVDs or books for him, I think, he saw everything about him already. I will buy some clothes for him, but if you have any idea with the logo itself, please take it :)


My parents:
 - SEWING: Pillows, or pillow covers with Scrabble letters. http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584811811936/

Mother-in-law and his boyfriend:
 - Painted silk scarf. I was looking for some beautiful one of this long time ago for my mother-in-law. She likes red and brown, so something in fall colors would be awesome.

I claim grabacoffee for some fused glass jewelry for her mother-in-law.  This is my second claim this round.  (2/0/0)

Hi, all!  I'm Tracy from Idaho.  Hubby and I have two college aged boys who are off to school and three furry family members.  We have lots of nieces and nephews and family is scattered all across the country.  I'm quite excited for this swap, and my list will probably evolve as we go along and get closer to the holiday season. 

I love that I can gift quality handmade items from the Craftster Community. If you have a business card or tag that you use, I'd like to include it with gift packages, so would be very grateful if you would send it on along!  ♥


Things that would be great for lots of folks on the lists:

Handmade soaps - cold or hot process, not M & P.  Any scents you enjoy working with would be great - there are so many folks this would work for that I'm sure to be able to match your available scents with recipients preferences.

Felted Soaps:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698662/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698662/)

These awesome charger pockets:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/)  Thanks, watson!

Baseball bracelets like these:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694379/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694379/)

This type of 'giving plate' for friends and neighbors - your own style/color/interpretation is welcomed!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694373/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694373/)

Soup mugs:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639554658/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639554658/)

Love this bird's nest hoopla for my bro and sis-in-law, love the burlap, would need to have 4 pinkish eggs and 2 blue ones:  http://pinterest.com/pin/286682332503140541/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/286682332503140541/)


For some of the ladies - I could gift these lovely mittens to as many as seven folks on my list:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698632/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698632/)


For my sis-in-law, J - burlap rosettes heart wreath similar to this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694362/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694362/)

Also for J - Silhouette Cameo cover like this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694363/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694363/)

For sis-in-laws in TX, CO, and FL - anyone do hand carved spoons?  http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand%20carved%20spoons (http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand%20carved%20spoons)  or rustic wood cutting boards?  http://pinterest.com/pin/66357794482703425/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/66357794482703425/)


Ear cuffs of your design for older nieces and a couple SiLs, simple, clean looks are probably best:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694444/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694444/)

Yarn bowls for a couple of crafty folks on the list:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/)    http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/)

Would LOVE a hipsterish sock monkey for my oldest son - most important detail would be the bow tie.  This one is AWESOME:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694690/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694690/)

Also, sock monkeys for the younger nieces and nephews would be awesome, too!  Girls range from 2 years to 9 years old.  Boys range from 4 years to 12 years old.  Fun girly motifs or horses or gymnastics type.  Boys play baseball and love the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Boston Bruins.

In either this swap or the OWS last month, someone received a taggie dinosaur made from New England Patriots fabric - HUGE wish for the soon to be new niece or nephew!!!

Looking for three weighted pin cushions with thread catchers and scissor slot for mom and two dear friends.  I received one in a swap from ehinders and they all love it!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694323/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694323/)

ANYTHING in New England Patriots, Boston Bruins or Boston Red Sox motifs - jewelry or bags/pouches for the ladies and ANY guy things you might be able to dream up.  I have a difficult time with the guys.

Anyone do pencil sketches or ink drawings or any other subject art media?  Would love some framable pieces showcasing son's race car from this season, each of the boys, and even our fur babies!  Can send or email photos.

BIG, BIG wish:  My mom has a quilted book cover for standard size paperbacks -- you know, the trashy romance novel size!  She got it many years ago at a craft show and the poor thing is thread bare and barely hanging on.  She has not been able to find one to replace it because she is quite particular.  This one has an attached bookmark, a velcro closure and a little pocket on the front.  Any one who could create something like this in a bluish color pattern would have my forever gratitude! 

My baby brother is having his first baby...........well, his wife is, anyway!  We don't know if it will be a boy or a girl, but if you have any go-to baby gifts that you make, we'd love to add them to the 'baby to be' gift package!

AND............we donate and decorate a tree for the local Festival of Trees each year.  We are going with an Americana motif this year and would LOVE it if any of you would be willing to send along an ornament for the tree!

I claim Glasskicker for a quilted book cover for mom

2 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Glasskicker for a quilted book cover (claimed)
Glasskicker for wall charger pockets (claimed)

My name is Christy 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.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas so if you want to craft something from there  please PM me first to make sure it is still available (I'm in the ongoing wishlist swap as well).  Also, feel free to check out my other pinterest boards because they are full of projects I probably won't do myself dangit http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  I'm totally using this list as my personal gift-giving list as well, so if I get a chance to sew things off this list myself I will be taking them off. There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse, run with it http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773518660/

Also, this knitted minecraft hat, the tutorial is a perfect size 8 I think
http://www.craftcaravan.com/knitted-minecraft-creeper-hat.


My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

GRANDPARENTS
GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church.

Mawmaw: She's an adorable, active,  social lil wino lol. She's in a group called the Ya-Ya's that travel and eat out together a lot so I would LOVE anything you can come up with that incorporates any of that.  

Etched wine glasses for my Mawmaw, she loves her wine! Something funny like her favorite saying "big girl at night, big girl in the morning" or "it's wine-o-clock" or something like this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395164/

http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

ANYTHING Grumpy Cat: mug rug, pouch, hoopla, anything!

Boys:::::

http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396328/

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games  (Mario, skylanders, kerbey, etc)

Another 9 yo nephew is really into Boy Scouts, so anything themed to that would be great….it seems like they go camping a lot.   He's also really into science and building contraptions, so any kinds of kits you can throw together would be great (I saw a contraption kit on pinterest, I'll try to find the link...)

I have 3 nephews (6, 4, 2.5---- brothers******ALLERGIES****) that are into superheroes so different superhero masks/capes/cuffs/shoe-wings/whatever would be hilarious

I claim Watsonc7 for some animal scarves

(2,0,0)

Hi!  I’m Melanie from Ontario, Canada. I’m a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  I’m sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course   http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/

These would be great for anyone on my list too http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505455/
As would these snowman chocolates http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505443/

Heres another thing that would work for so many people. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509667971/

Mom – OK, my Mom is hard!!  Maybe not, but she is for me.  She has a unique style I think.  She loves her hot tub and being outside.  She likes wine.  She has little iguanas hanging around (ceramic, not real) and she likes bold colours.

- She does yoga, these socks or some similar would be perfect! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559563/

- A cute chapstick holder would be nice, whether its for one to hang on a keychain or something for multiple to go in her purse

I claim nisforneville for a Harry Potter Kindle Fire cozy.

This is my first claim in this round.

My name is Melody and I am in South Carolina. I live with my husband our 2 daughers ages 6 and 14. We do have 2 dogs and 2 cats. They do not come in the craft room. We are a non smoking home. While we are not allergic to smoke, my daughter is bothered somewhat by the smell so I would prefer not to receive from a smoking household.

Biggest wishes are in red.  

For my youngest daughter
She loves mermaids, so maybe some kind of doll... I love these..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664308097/ and especially http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664302357/
Dresses are always a hit. These are especially cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664378862/
Hairbows are always good. These are cute, but anything girly really (not really into pastel baby colors)..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664392283/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664360202/ These are just ideas, any little bows especially with dolls or animals would be great stocking stuffers.
Apron (she loves to cook) some that are cute... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469052/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/547187423446498203/

Snowball surprise http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664443641/
Elf slippers. Maybe more of a Christmas red with some cream? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/542402348841574923/
Peg people pets (mostly cats and dogs) and/or some peg people furniture or accessories (rugs, dog beds, etc)  My daughter wants a peg pet rescue of sorts. I am going to try to work on that so anything to go with that would be great.
Travel pillow that will go on the seat belt :  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666753187/
Kimono shoes: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741699/

Ice cream phone or ipod case (she has a phone and an ipod) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/
Walking dead..she loves Glen and especially Daryl (who doesn't) so something like this maybe? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522026/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522050/ She's not picky. She will love anything with either of them on it.
She also loves Lord of the Rings, especially the cute guy that played on  Hidalgo (I can't remember his name). Anything Lord of the rings is good.
She also loves the SF 49ers and Kirko bangz. I think she would like some pins to pin on her bookbag etc. with either of those.

My husband:
He's hard to craft for. He does like to hunt though and had this cowl like thing that he used to wear until it finally fell apart. Basically it was a knitted tube he slipped over his head. It would need to be pretty soft, thick and warm, and simple. Maybe camo colors or browns, greens. Just nothing that would stand out. He will be wearing it hunting.
He would also like maybe some body wash, shampoo, shaving soap
 in woodsy scents.
He would like a simple leather wallet.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

Step Mom:
She likes to crochet so maybe something to organize her supplies?
Spindle for beginners? I don't know much about spinning but I think she would love to try it  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769179/ Something like this maybe? Not picky about it at all.

I claim lo{ve} for some handmade soap and some wine glass coasters. ;)
(1/0/0)

I'm Kassie, 23 year old wife to my best friend and mama to my two sweet little girls. We live in Idaho and run our essential oils business, Raw Supply (www.rawoilsupply.com) from our home. I also run a growing blog, Going Green with the Grizls (www.goinggreenwiththegrizls.com) and love to immerse myself in making handmade items for our new home, with a little photography on the side. ;)
I have a more modern style so no country kitchen, super quaint stuff please.

Hubby:Hubby loves to spend his time working in our yard, hunting, fishing and even the occasional online gaming. His favorite colors are black and blue.

Handmade leather wallet- he prefers bi-fold http://www.pinterest.com/pin/304555993521512324/


Girls:Natalia will be 3 on New Years Eve and Kaliah just turned 6 months! I'm planning to do their room in the Michael Miller Zoology line in Orchid Colorway (so think light pink, aqua, purple, touch of lime, and charcoal greys.

My biggest gift for Christmas is going to be a big felt board. That being said, I'd really love some help getting together a few sets of felt toys and coordinating backgrounds. Here's a few sets I've seen that are cute and I'm including reference links as well. ;)
Farm-- http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182803889/ & http://www.pinterest.com/pin/237564949066002483/
Dress Up Dolls-- http://www.pinterest.com/pin/204843483021177927/
Lots more ideas here: http://www.pinterest.com/greengrizls/diy-toys/

A little doll for Natalia. Here's two I think she would like: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180939692/ & http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180939691/

Crocheted Shoes for either girl. Natalia wears a 7-8 toddler and Kaliah wears a 2-3 baby http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286181519044/

They also both really need some clothes in the next size, but I'm mostly concerned about getting clothes for my toddler. (3T or 4T). I have an entire board for kids clothing. http://www.pinterest.com/greengrizls/diy-kids-clothing/ If you want to make things for baby, stick to the 9-12 month size and colder season clothing items.
Here's my biggest kids clothing wants:
-tulle skirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182821121/
-striped dress http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182508353/
-slouchy cardigan http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182477907/
-Kwik Sew dress http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286181807063/
-Cinched waist dress http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180370857/

Me:
Beautiful grey & lace scarf http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182803789/

Home:Most of our home is in the colorways of greay, black minimal accent/furniture, white accent and a lovely bright teal-y blue.
Scrap Rosette Pillow --needs to be white, grey, black or aqua. Could even make as a pillow cover & I'll provide the pillow form ;) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182798589/

Reversible Block Decor-http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182798659/

All season wreath: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/224828206368704330/

Other Family:
I think my SIL Crystal might love me forever if someone made her this HP apron! (Minus the tulle around the bottom hem) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180346505/

A handmade leather wallet for my dad.. he wants a tri-fold and mom says he tends to carry a lot with him.

Supplies:
I *really* need someone to cut this vinyl for me so I can do this project myself. Would need to be like 36-48" wide. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182803931/

I claim klg_jlg for felt dress up doll set

3 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Klg_jlg for felt dress up doll set (claimed)
Glasskicker for a quilted book cover (claimed)
Glasskicker for wall charger pockets (claimed)

My name is Christy 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.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas so if you want to craft something from there  please PM me first to make sure it is still available (I'm in the ongoing wishlist swap as well).  Also, feel free to check out my other pinterest boards because they are full of projects I probably won't do myself dangit http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  I'm totally using this list as my personal gift-giving list as well, so if I get a chance to sew things off this list myself I will be taking them off. There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse, run with it http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773518660/


Also, this knitted minecraft hat, the tutorial is a perfect size 8 I think
http://www.craftcaravan.com/knitted-minecraft-creeper-hat.

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not a game changer!) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

GRANDPARENTS
GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church.

Mawmaw: She's an adorable, active,  social lil wino lol. She's in a group called the Ya-Ya's that travel and eat together a lot so I would LOVE anything you can come up with that incorporates any of that.  She hosts luncheons a lot so any kind and all shapes of bright/bold colored casserole dish or bowl covers would be perfect!

Etched wine glasses for my Mawmaw, she loves her wine! Something funny like her favorite saying "big girl at night, big girl in the morning" or "it's wine-o-clock" or something like this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395164/

Love this wooden sign (I can assemble it myself to help with shipping) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396388/

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

http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

For SIL, a North Carolina charm necklace like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773600843/

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games  (Mario, skylanders, kerbey, etc)

Another 9 yo nephew is really into Boy Scouts, so anything themed to that would be great….it seems like they go camping a lot.   He's also really into science and building contraptions, so any kinds of kits you can throw together would be great (I saw a contraption kit on pinterest, I'll try to find the link...)

I have 3 nephews (6, 4, 2.5---- brothers******ALLERGIES****) that are into superheroes so different superhero masks/capes/cuffs/shoe-wings/whatever would be hilarious

Hi my name is Amy. I live in the soggy Seattle area with my husband and 2 teenage daughters. The girls and I are testing for our black belt in karate at the end of October and are crazy excited about it. Now that it’s winter, if we’re not actively training, we’re usually cold. So anything that helps us bundle up in a fashionable way, is greatly appreciated.

Anything in red means I'm begging  ;D

I've also got a "Craft for me Please" board, where you are free to roam. Those are just my more recent loves. Any boards are up for grabs, though.

-gift bows made out of magazine pages

I claim LadybugsandBumblebees for something Hello Kitty themed for her boss (1,0,0)

Hi.  I am Brenda from Southern California.  I just celebrated my 8th wedding anniversary last month.  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!

I claim Crazyda79 for a doll for a 7 year old girl.

2/0/0

My name is Melody and I am in South Carolina. I live with my husband our 2 daughers ages 6 and 14. We do have 2 dogs and 2 cats. They do not come in the craft room. We are a non smoking home. While we are not allergic to smoke, my daughter is bothered somewhat by the smell so I would prefer not to receive from a smoking household.

Biggest wishes are in red.   

For my youngest daughter
She has talked about this that she saw in a toy store for a year  http://www.squishable.com/pc/massive_squish_owl_24/squishable_massive/?gclid=CKGh4P2MmroCFYdQ7AodCHEA0A I can't make myself pay that much for a bean bag chair. I would love to giver her a bean bag chair with a big owl face on it though. I could stuff it myself. Doesn't have to look like the picture, and of course doesn't have to be made out of that fur either.

She loves mermaids, so maybe some kind of doll... I love these..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664308097/ and especially http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664302357/

Dresses are always a hit. These are especially cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664378862/

Hairbows are always good. These are cute, but anything girly really (not really into pastel baby colors)..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664392283/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664360202/ These are just ideas, any little bows especially with dolls or animals would be great stocking stuffers.

Apron (she loves to cook) some that are cute... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469052/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/547187423446498203/

Chef hat would be cute too.

Elf doll http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665005723/

Little fabric house with animals http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469057/

Tshirt ruffle dress, maybe with a long sleeve tshirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664526929/

Snowball surprise http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664443641/

Elf slippers. Maybe more of a Christmas red with some cream? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/542402348841574923/

Peg people pets (mostly cats and dogs) and/or some peg people furniture or accessories (rugs, dog beds, etc)   My daughter wants a peg pet rescue of sorts. I am going to try to work on that so anything to go with that would be great.

Travel pillow that will go on the seat belt :  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666753187/

Kimono shoes: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741699/

Felt food. She has breakfast foods but any other would be good. Really like these
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787607/ and
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787608/ or hot dogs, sandwiches, anything really!

Crochet jacket thing..I love this!  
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666795754/

Crocheted red cape with hood.

She loves stuffed animals, and would love one or two of these little mice http://sewingstars.com/mousepattern.htm

Barbie clothes, any and all. She is getting barbies for the first time this year and is already talking about being able to change their clothes.

Oldest daughter:
Sloth hoop for her wall (doesn't have to be this one)http://www.pinterest.com/pin/202873158184870734/

Ice cream phone or ipod case (she has a phone and an ipod) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/

Walking dead..she loves Glen and especially Daryl (who doesn't) so something like this maybe?  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522026/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522050/ She's not picky. She will love anything with either of them on it.

She also loves Lord of the Rings, especially the cute guy that played on  Hidalgo (I can't remember his name). Anything Lord of the rings is good.

She also loves the SF 49ers and Kirko bangz. I think she would like some pins to pin on her bookbag etc. with either of those.

She has a smash book too, so likes things for it.

Fused glass night lights. Would love these for both daughters! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741648/ Don't have to be just like this. Any little cute animal would work.

Horse all purpose saddle pad. She loves pink leopard print http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666716215/

Horse bridle tag and maybe a dog tag for her dog. Something like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/77562141/personalized-horse-bridle-tag-big-brass.

Dinosaur wall plaques. I have seen ones I liked more than this but I can't find the links. Something like this though, in fun colors. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986663794164/

Wrapped ear buds! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666773596/

Shrinky dink dino necklace!!  A Parasaurolophus would be ideal, but t rex is awesome too!  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769354/

Ed, Ed, Eddy plank. Maybe a pillow? Or a necklace? Anything with the plank on it would be fun.

My husband:
He's hard to craft for. He does like to hunt though and had this cowl like thing that he used to wear until it finally fell apart. Basically it was a knitted tube he slipped over his head. It would need to be pretty soft, thick and warm, and simple. Maybe camo colors or browns, greens. Just nothing that would stand out. He will be wearing it hunting.
He would also like maybe some body wash, shampoo, shaving soap
 in woodsy scents.
He would like a simple leather wallet.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My Mom:
Another one that is hard but maybe some home made greeting cards. She is always sending cards to everyone for everything. These are some of the types I think she would like..just ideas.. not very picky but she doesn't like anything too silly.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/49187820900514490/ or
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/228628118553494523/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/50735933272727968/
Casserole carrier http://www.pinterest.com/pin/66287425736581335/ or something like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/76842737365167411/
Necklace of some sort with kids and grandkids birthstones. I love this tree of life: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741560/
Kitchen towels embellished.. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My Dad:
Chihuahua mug: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741659/
If anyone paints, he would love a painting of his late Chihuahua. He passed away this year and my Dad is still grieving.Some arthritis salve would be good for several people on my list.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986663794164/
Step Mom:
She likes to crochet so maybe something to organize her supplies?
Spindle for beginners? I don't know much about spinning but I think she would love to try it  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769179/ Something like this maybe? Not picky about it at all.
Roving? Isn't that what she would need to spin? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My brother:
Some sort of video game controller pillow. He's a major gamer. Or maybe a couple pillow cases for his bed pillows, something like this (doesn't have to be exact)
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665215760/
My brother's gf:
She is going to school for vet tech. I think she would like a bag like this or similar: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741667/

Anchor bracelet. I could use 2 of these, or similar http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769330/

Brother in law:
He loves geocaching and zombie stuff so anything to do with that. Maybe some kind of zombie preparedness kit.
Geocaching key chains http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741744/

Various things for various people:
Crocheted bath poufs http://www.pinterest.com/pin/118852877638840350/
Ribbon keychains: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/446067538062632632/
Simple fabric wallets something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/176555247864837307/
A hat with beard (pirate theme would be even cooler) for a boy that is 7, turning 8 in March http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666749364/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666749362/ Doesn't have to be just like these, they are just ideas.
Sasquatch mugs would be good for a couple people I know. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986663212006/
Pottery. I love handmade pottery. I could use coffee mugs for several people.
My oldest daughter's best friend would like some emblem3 buttons to pin on things, or maybe a dachshund hoop or earrings. She has a black/tan named Lola.
Pot holder clutches. These would be good for several girls on my list. I will put the stuff in them.

Hello! I live in San Francisco, CA. USA! I love to try and only give crafted gifts as presents and this swap helps so much with that! I usually love surprises but I would like to know what I'm being claimed for in this swap because I want to make a lot of these items too and don't want us both to be crafting the same awesomeness at the same time!

(2/0/0)


I'm Kassie, 23 year old wife to my best friend and mama to my two sweet little girls. We live in Idaho and run our essential oils business, Raw Supply (www.rawoilsupply.com) from our home. I also run a growing blog, Going Green with the Grizls (www.goinggreenwiththegrizls.com) and love to immerse myself in making handmade items for our new home, with a little photography on the side. ;)
I have a more modern style so no country kitchen, super quaint stuff please.

Hubby:Hubby loves to spend his time working in our yard, hunting, fishing and even the occasional online gaming. His favorite colors are black and blue.

Handmade leather wallet- he prefers bi-fold


Girls:Natalia will be 3 on New Years Eve and Kaliah just turned 6 months! I'm planning to do their room in the Michael Miller Zoology line in Orchid Colorway (so think light pink, aqua, purple, touch of lime, and charcoal greys.

My biggest gift for Christmas is going to be a big felt board. That being said, I'd really love some help getting together a few sets of felt toys and coordinating backgrounds. Here's a few sets I've seen that are cute and I'm including reference links as well. ;)
Farm-- http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182803889/ & http://www.pinterest.com/pin/237564949066002483/
Dress Up Dolls-- http://www.pinterest.com/pin/204843483021177927/
Lots more ideas here: http://www.pinterest.com/greengrizls/diy-toys/

A little doll for Natalia. Here's two I think she would like: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180939692/ & http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180939691/

Crocheted Shoes for either girl. Natalia wears a 7-8 toddler and Kaliah wears a 2-3 baby http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286181519044/

They also both really need some clothes in the next size, but I'm mostly concerned about getting clothes for my toddler. (3T or 4T). I have an entire board for kids clothing. http://www.pinterest.com/greengrizls/diy-kids-clothing/
Here's my biggest kids clothing wants:
-tulle skirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182821121/
-striped dress http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182508353/
-slouchy cardigan http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182477907/
-Kwik Sew dress http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286181807063/
-Cinched waist dress http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180370857/

Me:
Beautiful grey & lace scarf http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182803789/

Home:Most of our home is in the colorways of greay, black minimal accent/furniture, white accent and a lovely bright teal-y blue.
Scrap Rosette Pillow --needs to be white, grey, black or aqua. Could even make as a pillow cover & I'll provide the pillow form ;) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182798589/

Reversible Block Decor-http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182798659/

All season wreath: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/224828206368704330/

Other Family:
I think my SIL might love me forever if someone made her this HP apron! (Minus the tulle around the bottom hem) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286180346505/

A handmade leather wallet for my dad.. he wants a tri-fold and mom says he tends to carry a lot with him.

Supplies:
I *really* need someone to cut this vinyl for me so I can do this project myself. Would need to be like 36-48" wide. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/242209286182803931/

Hi.  I am Brenda from Southern California.  I just celebrated my 8th wedding anniversary last month.  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 Star Wars Amis.

Hi!  I’m Melanie from Ontario, Canada. I’m a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  I’m sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course   http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/

These would be great for anyone on my list too http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505455/
As would these snowman chocolates http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505443/

Heres another thing that would work for so many people. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509667971/

Mom – OK, my Mom is hard!!  Maybe not, but she is for me.  She has a unique style I think.  She loves her hot tub and being outside.  She likes wine.  She has little iguanas hanging around (ceramic, not real) and she likes bold colours.
- I would LOVE if someone could knit her these socks http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lizard-socks-2
- My Moms a machine shop teacher in high school.  I think she would LOVE some sort of steampunk ornament.  
- My Mom would LOVE this windchime made of old wine bottles.  Could be any colour. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510547042/
- These mason jars would be perfect for her deck at night! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510408563/
- This would be PERFECT!!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513369661/
- love love this for her!!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5559199513598292/

Dad – My Dad is another one who is pretty difficult.  Hes originally from Manchester England and loves Manchester soccer team.  I really don’t have any ideas for him.
- Manchester United coasters

Max - Brother – Max and Nat just had a baby boy!!!  As of today he is a whole 5 days old!!  Max also LOVES Ace Ventura and Scarface.
- Something to do with Daddy would be amazingly awesome!
- This Jack Daniels soap bottle would be great for his mancave http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513035150/

Natalie – SIL – Nat loves dancing and baking.  She has her own dance studio where she teaches kids.  She loves turtles.  She likes nautical themed things.  Shes a brand new wonderful Mommy!!
- Ballerina loaded charm bracelet
- A business card holder
- She does yoga, these socks or some similar would be perfect! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559563/
- I think Nat would like these too, I like that they look like long legwarmers but they really only peek out the top of your boot so they don't have to be as long as these ones and go all the way to your ankle... http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559566/
- A cute chapstick holder would be nice, whether its for one to hang on a keychain or something for multiple to go in her purse
- HUGE WISH!!!! would LOVE this for Nat - http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513422873/ to say Madden of course, 08-24-13 as the birth date and August birthstone.   Thanks GlassKicker!!!
- bath teas http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505449/

Madden - nephew
- any little baby toys appropriate for a 4 month old
- some cute baby onesies

- anything Minecraft
- A personalized notebook

- Anything Minecraft

- Fireman/policeman ANYTHING (plush, bag, art to hang in his room, toy…….)
- I think I would like to make up a felt toy set, maybe have it in a nice box for him.  Filled with felt masks, kinda like a dress up box I guess, but mostly masks.  Animals, glasses, mustaches, superheroes…….  This is copied over from last year and he still has some, but honestly, he absolutely LOVES this stuff!!
- Speaking of felt, this would be adorable for him and he would LOVE to be Santa!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513500840/
- A crochet Santa beard hat, Ethan would LOVE this http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bearded-santa-hat. Thanks nisforneville!!
- a fire sign like this would be awesome! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5559199513640845/

Daysie-Lynn – Well, shes the first girl, so needless to say, after 4 boys, shes very girly, haha. I seem to love the colour combos with browns for her (pink/brown, lt blue/brown…..)
- a cute outfit (she LOVES pockets!)
- a doll for her, any medium, sewn, crocheted, knit......
- baby doll diapers and/or clothes. She has a few dollies, but easiest to say size wise is her cabbage patch doll
- she loves purses
- some felt play things, maybe things to go in a purse?
BIG WISH!!! - no matter how hard I try to change her mind, she ADORES barney. I'd love love love you forever if you could make her a barney or baby bop plushies!!!

Kid Gifts – My MIL has foster kids and we all consider them family!!  I’d love to get them some little things. I have no idea really what. Theres 3 girls (17, 15, 10) and 2 boys (18, 11)

Ok, seriously, this is more a large for sure, but if anyone could make this for me you would be my hero!  :D http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5559199513696062/

Any stocking stuffers for my kiddies would be much appreciated too.  Anything you would think my kids would like!!

I would love some Christmas ornaments, I LOVE the quilted balls http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509688611/ or ribbon pinecones http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509688610/ or felt pinecones http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509721210/

A personalized ornament for the kids in themes they would like

Love this wreath http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5559199513713752/

Some Christmas cards for me to send out (more funny than religious)

Chalkboard Gift tags for presents

A good sized advent calender for the kids for Christmas

Love this Christmasy wreath http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199511189104/

I claim mama24boyz for monster bibs for Madden

4 claims  / 2 in transit / 0 received
Mama24boyz for monster bibs (claimed)
Klg_jlg for felt dress up doll set (claimed)
Glasskicker for a quilted book cover (sent)
Glasskicker for wall charger pockets (sent)

My name is Christy 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.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas  http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  . Also, feel free to check out my other pinterest boards because they are full of projects I probably won't do myself dangit.

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse, run with it http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773518660/

(2) knitted minecraft hats, the tutorial is a perfect size 8 I think
http://www.craftcaravan.com/knitted-minecraft-creeper-hat.

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not a game changer!) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

GRANDPARENTS
GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church. (thanks Lo{ve}!)

Mawmaw: She's an adorable, active,  social lil wino lol. She's in a group called the Ya-Ya's that travel and eat together a lot so I would LOVE anything you can come up with that incorporates any of that.  She hosts luncheons a lot so any kind and all shapes of bright/bold colored casserole dish or bowl covers would be perfect!

Etched wine glasses for my Mawmaw, she loves her wine! Something funny like her favorite saying "big girl at night, big girl in the morning" or something like this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395164/

Love this wooden sign (I can assemble it myself to help with shipping) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396388/

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

IN-LAWS:

(4) car trash bags with vinyl insert
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=352363.0#axzz2e5GOLdhn

(3) set of 4 resin photo coasters.  Would love a set of coasters of the great/grandkids.  I would send you the pictures

(unlimited) Fabric paper towels preferably in half size, but I'll totally take full sized sheets. Bonus for using three snaps a side and including the center snap roll --I've seen it on other tutorials, it holds the towels in the middle http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395335/

KitchenAid mixer cover for my SIL who has a green kitchen (so would rather it just have green accents maybe, not all green).  It doesn't have to be as intricate as the link, there are tons of different designs online
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

For SIL, a North Carolina charm necklace like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773600843/

A large purse insert organizer (or the pattern and I will make it!) in neutral colors for my cousin.   http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Suzi_Purse_Insert_More/299/c50

ANYTHING Grumpy Cat: mug rug, pouch, hoopla, anything!

wine cork stands (would love any shape/size) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773070638/ 

Mug Rugs:
wine-themed for Mawmaw (thanks grab a coffee!)
cardinal themed for GGma
(3) tea themed

KIDS  (note allergens)

Ladies First:::::: 


My nieces love the movie Camp Rock so anything themed to that would freak them out (they are seriously so easy to please, love it!)....character dolls (fabric or painted), totes/pouches, anything.

They would also love Hello Kitty duct tape bags, 2 of them a little different from each other if possible (maybe one red and one pink bow?) so they know who's is who's http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773556519/

Baby Girls: head bands, ruffle bloomers, onesie dresses, fabric shoes, anything girly.  By Christmas one will be 4 months (***allergies in that household***) and the other will be almost a year old.

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games  (Mario, skylanders, kerbey, etc)

Another 9 yo nephew is really into Boy Scouts, so anything themed to that would be great….it seems like they go camping a lot.   He's also really into science and building contraptions, so any kinds of kits you can throw together would be great (I saw a contraption kit on pinterest, I'll try to find the link...)

I have 3 nephews (6, 4, 2.5---- brothers******ALLERGIES****) that are into superheroes so different superhero masks/capes/cuffs/shoe-wings/whatever would be hilarious

I claim Watsonc7 for (2) super hero fort kids.

3/0/0

My name is Melody and I am in South Carolina. I live with my husband and our 2 daughers, ages 6 and 14. We do have 2 dogs and 2 cats. They do not come in the craft room. We are a non smoking home. While we are not allergic to smoke, my daughter is bothered somewhat by the smell so I would prefer not to receive from a smoking household.

Biggest wishes are in red.   

For my youngest daughter
She loves mermaids, so maybe some kind of doll... I love these..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664308097/ and especially http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664302357/
Dresses are always a hit. These are especially cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664378862/
Hairbows are always good. These are cute, but anything girly really (not really into pastel baby colors)..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664392283/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664360202/ These are just ideas, any little bows especially with dolls or animals would be great stocking stuffers.
Apron (she loves to cook) some that are cute... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469052/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/547187423446498203/
Chef hat would be cute too.
Elf doll http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665005723/
Little fabric house with animals http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469057/
Tshirt ruffle dress, maybe with a long sleeve tshirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664526929/
Snowball surprise http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664443641/
Elf slippers. Maybe more of a Christmas red with some cream? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/542402348841574923/
Peg people pets (mostly cats and dogs) and/or some peg people furniture or accessories (rugs, dog beds, etc)   My daughter wants a peg pet rescue of sorts. I am going to try to work on that so anything to go with that would be great.
Travel pillow that will go on the seat belt :  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666753187/
Kimono shoes: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741699/
Any toy food. Felt, crochet, wooden..anything would be good. She has a lot of breakfast foods, but anything other than that would be good.
Oldest daughter:
Sloth hoop for her wall (doesn't have to be this one)http://www.pinterest.com/pin/202873158184870734/
Ice cream phone or ipod case (she has a phone and an ipod) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/
Walking dead..she loves Glen and especially Daryl (who doesn't) so something like this maybe?  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522026/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522050/ She's not picky. She will love anything with either of them on it.
She also loves Lord of the Rings, especially the cute guy that played on  Hidalgo (I can't remember his name). Anything Lord of the rings is good.
She also loves the SF 49ers and Kirko bangz. I think she would like some pins to pin on her bookbag etc. with either of those.
She has a smash book too, so likes things for it.
Fused glass night lights. Would love these for both daughters! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741648/ Don't have to be just like this. Any little cute animal would work.

Wrapped ear buds! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666773596/

My husband:
He's hard to craft for. He does like to hunt though and had this cowl like thing that he used to wear until it finally fell apart. Basically it was a knitted tube he slipped over his head. It would need to be pretty soft, thick and warm, and simple. Maybe camo colors or browns, greens. Just nothing that would stand out. He will be wearing it hunting.
He would also like maybe some body wash, shampoo, shaving soap
 in woodsy scents.
He would like a simple leather wallet.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My Mom:
Another one that is hard but maybe some home made greeting cards. She is always sending cards to everyone for everything. These are some of the types I think she would like..just ideas.. not very picky but she doesn't like anything too silly.

Anchor bracelet. I could use 2 of these, or similar http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769330/
I need wallets for about 3 boys all around 8 years old. One like army type stuff, one likes pirates, and one likes monster trucks. Any boy colors would work though, they don't have to be themed. Just nothing too babyish (they think theyh are big boys). No duct taped wallets. I would rather them be sewn.

Message me if you have any questions.

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 underthemountain for an assortment of fused glass pendants for teachers/friends.  This is my third claim this round.  (3/1/0)

Hi, all!  I'm Tracy from Idaho.  Hubby and I have two college aged boys who are off to school and three furry family members.  We have lots of nieces and nephews and family is scattered all across the country.  I'm quite excited for this swap, and my list will probably evolve as we go along and get closer to the holiday season. 

I love that I can gift quality handmade items from the Craftster Community. If you have a business card or tag that you use, I'd like to include it with gift packages, so would be very grateful if you would send it on along!  ♥


Things that would be great for lots of folks on the lists:

Handmade soaps - cold or hot process, not M & P.  Any scents you enjoy working with would be great - there are so many folks this would work for that I'm sure to be able to match your available scents with recipients preferences.

Felted Soaps:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698662/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698662/)

These awesome charger pockets:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/)  Thanks, watson!

Baseball bracelets like these:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694379/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694379/)

This type of 'giving plate' for friends and neighbors - your own style/color/interpretation is welcomed!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694373/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694373/)

Soup mugs:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639554658/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639554658/)

Love this bird's nest hoopla for my bro and sis-in-law, love the burlap, would need to have 4 pinkish eggs and 2 blue ones:  http://pinterest.com/pin/286682332503140541/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/286682332503140541/)


For some of the ladies - I could gift these lovely mittens to as many as seven folks on my list:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698632/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698632/)


For my sis-in-law, J - burlap rosettes heart wreath similar to this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694362/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694362/)

Also for J - Silhouette Cameo cover like this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694363/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694363/)

For sis-in-laws in TX, CO, and FL - anyone do hand carved spoons?  http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand%20carved%20spoons (http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand%20carved%20spoons)  or rustic wood cutting boards?  http://pinterest.com/pin/66357794482703425/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/66357794482703425/)


Ear cuffs of your design for older nieces and a couple SiLs, simple, clean looks are probably best:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694444/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694444/)

Yarn bowls for a couple of crafty folks on the list:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/)    http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/)

Would LOVE a hipsterish sock monkey for my oldest son - most important detail would be the bow tie.  This one is AWESOME:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694690/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694690/)

Also, sock monkeys for the younger nieces and nephews would be awesome, too!  Girls range from 2 years to 9 years old.  Boys range from 4 years to 12 years old.  Fun girly motifs or horses or gymnastics type.  Boys play baseball and love the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Boston Bruins.

In either this swap or the OWS last month, someone received a taggie dinosaur made from New England Patriots fabric - HUGE wish for the soon to be new niece or nephew!!!

Looking for three weighted pin cushions with thread catchers and scissor slot for mom and two dear friends.  I received one in a swap from ehinders and they all love it!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694323/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694323/)

ANYTHING in New England Patriots, Boston Bruins or Boston Red Sox motifs - jewelry or bags/pouches for the ladies and ANY guy things you might be able to dream up.  I have a difficult time with the guys.

Anyone do pencil sketches or ink drawings or any other subject art media?  Would love some framable pieces showcasing son's race car from this season, each of the boys, and even our fur babies!  Can send or email photos.

BIG, BIG wish:  My mom has a quilted book cover for standard size paperbacks -- you know, the trashy romance novel size!  She got it many years ago at a craft show and the poor thing is thread bare and barely hanging on.  She has not been able to find one to replace it because she is quite particular.  This one has an attached bookmark, a velcro closure and a little pocket on the front.  Any one who could create something like this in a bluish color pattern would have my forever gratitude! 
  Thank you, watsonc7!

My baby brother is having his first baby...........well, his wife is, anyway!  We don't know if it will be a boy or a girl, but if you have any go-to baby gifts that you make, we'd love to add them to the 'baby to be' gift package!  UPDATE:  It's a Boy!!!!!

AND............we donate and decorate a tree for the local Festival of Trees each year.  We are going with an Americana motif this year and would LOVE it if any of you would be willing to send along an ornament for the tree!

I claim Glasskicker for silhouette cover for sis and some baby stuff

5 claims  / 1 in transit / 2 received
Glasskicker for silhouette cover and baby stuff (claimed)
Mama24boyz for monster bibs (claimed)
Klg_jlg for felt dress up doll set (sent)
Glasskicker for a quilted book cover (received)
Glasskicker for wall charger pockets (received)

My name is Christy 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.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas   http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  (http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/) . Also, feel free to check out my other pinterest boards because they are full of projects I probably won't do myself dangit.

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

:::::SEWN:::::

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not a game changer!) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

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

GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church. (thanks Lo{ve}!)

(4) car trash bags with vinyl insert
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=352363.0#axzz2e5GOLdhn

(unlimited) Fabric paper towels preferably in half size, but I'll totally take full sized sheets. Bonus for using three snaps a side and including the center snap roll --I've seen it on other tutorials, it holds the towels in the middle http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395335/

KitchenAid mixer cover for my SIL who has a green kitchen (so would rather it just have green accents maybe, not all green).  It doesn't have to be as intricate as the link, there are tons of different designs online
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

A large purse insert organizer (or the pattern and I will make it!) in neutral colors for my cousin.   http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Suzi_Purse_Insert_More/299/c50

Mug Rugs:
wine-themed for Mawmaw (thanks grab a coffee!)
cardinal themed for GGma
(3) tea themed
any mug rugs inspired by or just like ones on http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/mug-rugs/


Button tree tote http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773598544/

This is my 2nd claim  / 0 in transit / 1 received

Hello, I am Eszter from Hungary (Europe). I am living in Budapest (capital of Hungary) with my husband and my 2.5 years old son. We don't have any allergies, and I think, no one in my Christmas list. I am not prepared well yet, but I think, I can give you some ideas, what I would like to give to my family and friends. I might will upload more and more items, as soon as something coming to my mind.

Thanks!



My son:
He is 2.5 years old. I am renovating his room (we want to move soon from this flat, so we don't want to buy expensive things here). He has green walls, and a lot of stuff what I've made from our old jeans. So, here are some ideas what came to my mind:
 - SEWING: any type of denim stuffed animals (http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584812343698/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/276127020876276597/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/139189444705673751/ etc...)

I claim Grab A Coffee for a car stufftie

6 claims  / 1 in transit / 3 received
Grab A Coffee for car stufftie (claimed)
Glasskicker for silhouette cover and baby stuff (claimed)
Mama24boyz for monster bibs (sent)
Klg_jlg for felt dress up doll set (received)
Glasskicker for a quilted book cover (received)
Glasskicker for wall charger pockets (received)

My name is Christy 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.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas   http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/   (http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/) . Also, feel free to check out my other pinterest boards because they are full of projects I probably won't do myself dangit.

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

:::::SEWN:::::

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not a game changer!) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

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

GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church. (thanks Lo{ve}!)

(4) car trash bags with vinyl insert

(unlimited) Fabric paper towels preferably in half size, but I'll totally take full sized sheets. Bonus for using three snaps a side and including the center snap roll --I've seen it on other tutorials, it holds the towels in the middle http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395335/

KitchenAid mixer cover for my SIL who has a green kitchen (so would rather it just have green accents maybe, not all green).  It doesn't have to be as intricate as the link, there are tons of different designs online

(4,2,0)

Hi!  I’m Melanie from Ontario, Canada. I’m a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  I’m sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I claim underthemountain for homemade soaps for her sister.

4/2/1
My name is Melody and I am in South Carolina. I live with my husband our 2 daughers ages 6 and 14. We do have 2 dogs and 2 cats. They do not come in the craft room. We are a non smoking home. While we are not allergic to smoke, my daughter is bothered somewhat by the smell so I would prefer not to receive from a smoking household.

Biggest wishes are in red.   

For my youngest daughter
She has talked about this that she saw in a toy store for a year  http://www.squishable.com/pc/massive_squish_owl_24/squishable_massive/?gclid=CKGh4P2MmroCFYdQ7AodCHEA0A I can't make myself pay that much for a bean bag chair. I would love to give her a bean bag chair with a big owl face on it though. I could stuff it myself. Doesn't have to look like the picture, and of course doesn't have to be made out of that fur either.

She loves mermaids, so maybe some kind of doll... I love these..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664308097/ and especially http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664302357/

Dresses are always a hit. These are especially cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664378862/

Hairbows are always good. These are cute, but anything girly really (not really into pastel baby colors)..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664392283/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664360202/ These are just ideas, any little bows especially with dolls or animals would be great stocking stuffers.

Apron (she loves to cook) some that are cute... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469052/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/547187423446498203/

Chef hat would be cute too.

Elf doll http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665005723/

Little fabric house with animals http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469057/

Tshirt ruffle dress, maybe with a long sleeve tshirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664526929/

Snowball surprise http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664443641/

Elf slippers. Maybe more of a Christmas red with some cream? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/542402348841574923/

Peg people pets (mostly cats and dogs) and/or some peg people furniture or accessories (rugs, dog beds, etc)   My daughter wants a peg pet rescue of sorts. I am going to try to work on that so anything to go with that would be great.

Travel pillow that will go on the seat belt :  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666753187/

Kimono shoes: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741699/

Felt food. She has breakfast foods but any other would be good. Really like these
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787607/ and
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787608/ or hot dogs, sandwiches, anything really!

Crochet jacket thing..I love this!  
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666795754/

Crocheted red cape with hood.

She loves stuffed animals, and would love one or two of these little mice http://sewingstars.com/mousepattern.htm

Barbie clothes, any and all. She is getting barbies for the first time this year and is already talking about being able to change their clothes.

Oldest daughter:
Sloth hoop for her wall (doesn't have to be this one)http://www.pinterest.com/pin/202873158184870734/

Ice cream phone or ipod case (she has a phone and an ipod) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/

Walking dead..she loves Glen and especially Daryl (who doesn't) so something like this maybe?  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522026/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522050/ She's not picky. She will love anything with either of them on it.

She also loves Lord of the Rings, especially the cute guy that played on  Hidalgo (I can't remember his name). Anything Lord of the rings is good.

She also loves the SF 49ers and Kirko bangz. I think she would like some pins to pin on her bookbag etc. with either of those.

She has a smash book too, so likes things for it.

Fused glass night lights. Would love these for both daughters! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741648/ Don't have to be just like this. Any little cute animal would work.

Horse all purpose saddle pad. She loves pink leopard print http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666716215/

Horse bridle tag and maybe a dog tag for her dog. Something like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/77562141/personalized-horse-bridle-tag-big-brass.

Dinosaur wall plaques. I have seen ones I liked more than this but I can't find the links. Something like this though, in fun colors. I would want the dino to be a different color than the plaque so it would stand out better http://www.pinterest.com/pin/113856696802465553/

Wrapped ear buds! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666773596/

Shrinky dink dino necklace!!  A Parasaurolophus would be ideal, but t rex is awesome too!  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769354/

Ed, Ed, Eddy plank. Maybe a pillow? Or a necklace? Anything with the plank on it would be fun.

She is redecorating her room in black, white, and hot pink. Any pillows to go along with that would be fantastic. You don't have to stuff them, I can do that. Anything else that would go in a teen's room would be great really.


My husband:
He's hard to craft for. He does like to hunt though and had this cowl like thing that he used to wear until it finally fell apart. Basically it was a knitted tube he slipped over his head. It would need to be pretty soft, thick and warm, and simple. Maybe camo colors or browns, greens. Just nothing that would stand out. He will be wearing it hunting.
He would also like maybe some body wash, shampoo, shaving soap
 in woodsy scents.
He would like a simple leather wallet.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My Mom:
Another one that is hard but maybe some home made greeting cards. She is always sending cards to everyone for everything. These are some of the types I think she would like..just ideas.. not very picky but she doesn't like anything too silly.

Kitchen towels embellished.. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My Dad:
Chihuahua mug: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741659/
If anyone paints, he would love a painting of his late Chihuahua. He passed away this year and my Dad is still grieving.Some arthritis salve would be good for several people on my list.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986663794164/
Step Mom:
She likes to crochet so maybe something to organize her supplies?
Spindle for beginners? I don't know much about spinning but I think she would love to try it  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769179/ Something like this maybe? Not picky about it at all.
Roving? Isn't that what she would need to spin? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My brother:
Some sort of video game controller pillow. He's a major gamer. Or maybe a couple pillow cases for his bed pillows, something like this (doesn't have to be exact)
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665215760/
My brother's gf:
She is going to school for vet tech. I think she would like a bag like this or similar: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741667/
Coffee cozy kitty http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666775397/
Anchor bracelet. I could use 2 of these, or similar http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769330/

Brother in law:
He loves geocaching and zombie stuff so anything to do with that. Maybe some kind of zombie preparedness kit.
Geocaching key chains http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741744/

Various things for various people:
Crocheted bath poufs http://www.pinterest.com/pin/118852877638840350/
Ribbon keychains: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/446067538062632632/
Simple fabric wallets something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/176555247864837307/
A hat with beard (pirate theme would be even cooler) for a boy that is 7, turning 8 in March http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666749364/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666749362/ Doesn't have to be just like these, they are just ideas.
Sasquatch mugs would be good for a couple people I know. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986663212006/
Pottery. I love handmade pottery. I could use coffee mugs for several people.
My oldest daughter's best friend would like some emblem3 buttons to pin on things, or maybe a dachshund hoop or earrings. She has a black/tan named Lola.
Pot holder clutches. These would be good for several girls on my list. I will put the stuff in them.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666773599/
Key chain wallet, I could use a few of these. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769204/

Hi!  I’m Melanie from Ontario, Canada. I’m a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  I’m sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course   http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/

- A cute chapstick holder would be nice, whether its for one to hang on a keychain or something for multiple to go in her purse

I claim mama24boys for some play teabags (from your pinterest), and a cute top for Daysie Lynn and something pinup for Haley (will pm to discuss-- if it doesn't work out then felted soaps)

(1, 0 0)

Hiya! I'm Molly, and I live in Oklahoma with my amazing husband and our pug, Cookie. I'm lucky enough to come from a super creative family and work as a creative, so that means that everyone I know is so hard to craft for! I'm shooting for a handmade Christmas since we just moved (read: are really really broke), so I'm looking forward for the chance to use my stash to help others do the same thing. Oh, and I'm really looking forward to spoiling myself and others with craftster's amazing talent. As always, please pm me with any measurement/sizing or other questions.

ALLERGY: We are all sensitive to smoke, and my husband(DH) is allergic to cats.


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; I also wanted people to be able to choose different small things to make up one claim.

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. :)


**= Would super duper love

Thank you SO much for claiming me! :D


Stencil/Screenprinting/Painted T-shirt wishes

**For my DH, a replacement similar to this T-shirt; it sadly got lost, he loved it, and now they don't make it any more. :( He's a medium
https://www.etsy.com/transaction/39194405?ref=fb2_tnx_image

**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. Pastel purple, turquoise, or pink on white. 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) 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

**An organizer for my mom's stash of Perle Cotton embroidery thread. She loves purple, bright gypsy colors, cutesy owls and muted realistic nature themes-- leaves, branches, trees and sheep.

**An apron for my amazing friend Mo! 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, classy yet 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 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 and on a scroll. Could use a few different styles.
   -"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. I think these are great mixed media/Teesha Moore candidates. On white, gray, 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 and be free!!
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. Hi 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 from this pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/guacamolly/christmas-wishlist/




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.

(Co-workers) Homemade cookies/goodies. I love to bake, especially around the holidays, but we just moved and I have no time!! I would love to treat my peeps at work to homemade goodies that I didn't have to make. I would take them in right away, so no worries on making something that keeps. Bonus if you can make something low-carb, that will be a treat for my DH, parents and I! We are not picky, my mom has a cashew allergy.

(DH) Gourmet/self roasted coffees, whole bean is fine

Jellies/Jams in any flavor



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

-I want to give out cookie giftboxes this year, so I would love some cute boxes. I could use several (like 20 or more). I'd prefer square or rectangle with a lid option, but I am seriously very flexible! They can be Christmas themed, covered in scrapbook paper, old music/book pages, solids or just kraft or white, I can easily add embellishments myself. Here's a link to ONE idea: https://www.etsy.com/listing/110878994/10-kraft-boxes-soap-box-2-58-x-3-34-x-1?ref=favs_view_19&atr_uid=6431548

-(Me) Business card and slightly bigger sized jewelry cards, mainly for post earrings. 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!


Misc.

**(Friends/BIL) A manly leather-like journal/sketchbook. I could use three. Bonus if it can have initials. Initials in order of importance: J, S, T

(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/kqkve5g
http://tinyurl.com/l8ghovf
http://tinyurl.com/p6uhql7

(friends) Fabric yo-yos so that I can make these and other things for friends. Huge bonus if you can include fun ribbons findings or bits and make it like a kit so that I can supplement from my stash!
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-z9GdaTVBxlU/TZzIfdmn0FI/AAAAAAAAI0w/Y1JSn64S4ME/s640/DSC_1051.JPG


(friends/co-workers/family) Tagged journals. These are sooo awesome! I could use several. New or vintage/repurposed fabrics and such. With or without cool mod podged, painted, or just regular pencils.
http://www.radicalpossibility.com/2012/07/making-anthro-inspired-moleskine-and.html

(Mom/friends) These amazing candlesticks. Since shipping can be a problem, I can assemble myself if someone would send me some of the components as a kit, or even just old odds and ends of random candlesticks. I think these would be great gifts for several people.
http://tinyurl.com/my8k2ye


(Me/friends) I have some special holiday events, and I would love a special blingy headband/fascinator/clip like one of these. These would also be great gifts for friends.

I claim guacaMolly for some jellies and jams.

5/2/2

My name is Melody and I am in South Carolina. I live with my husband our 2 daughers ages 6 and 14. We do have 2 dogs and 2 cats. They do not come in the craft room. We are a non smoking home. While we are not allergic to smoke, my daughter is bothered somewhat by the smell so I would prefer not to receive from a smoking household.

Biggest wishes are in red.   

For my youngest daughter
She has talked about this that she saw in a toy store for a year  http://www.squishable.com/pc/massive_squish_owl_24/squishable_massive/?gclid=CKGh4P2MmroCFYdQ7AodCHEA0A I can't make myself pay that much for a bean bag chair. I would love to give her a bean bag chair with a big owl face on it though. I could stuff it myself. Doesn't have to look like the picture, and of course doesn't have to be made out of that fur either.

She loves mermaids, so maybe some kind of doll... I love these..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664308097/ and especially http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664302357/

Dresses are always a hit. These are especially cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664378862/

Hairbows are always good. These are cute, but anything girly really (not really into pastel baby colors)..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664392283/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664360202/ These are just ideas, any little bows especially with dolls or animals would be great stocking stuffers.

Apron (she loves to cook) some that are cute... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469052/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/547187423446498203/

Chef hat would be cute too.

Elf doll http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665005723/

Little fabric house with animals http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469057/

Tshirt ruffle dress, maybe with a long sleeve tshirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664526929/

Snowball surprise http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664443641/

Elf slippers. Maybe more of a Christmas red with some cream? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/542402348841574923/

Peg people pets (mostly cats and dogs) and/or some peg people furniture or accessories (rugs, dog beds, etc)   My daughter wants a peg pet rescue of sorts. I am going to try to work on that so anything to go with that would be great.

Travel pillow that will go on the seat belt :  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666753187/

Kimono shoes: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741699/

Felt food. She has breakfast foods but any other would be good. Really like these
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787607/ and
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787608/ or hot dogs, sandwiches, anything really!

Crochet jacket thing..I love this!  
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666795754/

Crocheted red cape with hood.

She loves stuffed animals, and would love one or two of these little mice http://sewingstars.com/mousepattern.htm

Barbie clothes, any and all. She is getting barbies for the first time this year and is already talking about being able to change their clothes.

Oldest daughter:
Sloth hoop for her wall (doesn't have to be this one)http://www.pinterest.com/pin/202873158184870734/

Ice cream phone or ipod case (she has a phone and an ipod) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/

Walking dead..she loves Glen and especially Daryl (who doesn't) so something like this maybe?  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522026/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522050/ She's not picky. She will love anything with either of them on it.

She also loves Lord of the Rings, especially the cute guy that played on  Hidalgo (I can't remember his name). Anything Lord of the rings is good.

She also loves the SF 49ers and Kirko bangz. I think she would like some pins to pin on her bookbag etc. with either of those.

She has a smash book too, so likes things for it.

Fused glass night lights. Would love these for both daughters! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741648/ Don't have to be just like this. Any little cute animal would work.

Horse all purpose saddle pad. She loves pink leopard print http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666716215/

Horse bridle tag and maybe a dog tag for her dog. Something like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/77562141/personalized-horse-bridle-tag-big-brass.

Dinosaur wall plaques. I have seen ones I liked more than this but I can't find the links. Something like this though, in fun colors. I would want the dino to be a different color than the plaque so it would stand out better http://www.pinterest.com/pin/113856696802465553/

Wrapped ear buds! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666773596/

Shrinky dink dino necklace!!  A Parasaurolophus would be ideal, but t rex is awesome too!  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769354/

Ed, Ed, Eddy plank. Maybe a pillow? Or a necklace? Anything with the plank on it would be fun.

She is redecorating her room in black, white, and hot pink. Any pillows to go along with that would be fantastic. You don't have to stuff them, I can do that. Anything else that would go in a teen's room would be great really.


My husband:
He's hard to craft for. He does like to hunt though and had this cowl like thing that he used to wear until it finally fell apart. Basically it was a knitted tube he slipped over his head. It would need to be pretty soft, thick and warm, and simple. Maybe camo colors or browns, greens. Just nothing that would stand out. He will be wearing it hunting.
He would also like maybe some body wash, shampoo, shaving soap
 in woodsy scents.
He would like a simple leather wallet.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My Mom:
Another one that is hard but maybe some home made greeting cards. She is always sending cards to everyone for everything. These are some of the types I think she would like..just ideas.. not very picky but she doesn't like anything too silly.

Chihuahua mug: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741659/
If anyone paints, he would love a painting of his late Chihuahua. He passed away this year and my Dad is still grieving.Some arthritis salve would be good for several people on my list.

Simple fabric wallets something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/176555247864837307/
A hat with beard (pirate theme would be even cooler) for a boy that is 7, turning 8 in March http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666749364/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666749362/ Doesn't have to be just like these, they are just ideas.

Hello, I am Eszter from Hungary (Europe). I am living in Budapest (capital of Hungary) with my husband and my 2.5 years old son. We don't have any allergies, and I think, no one in my Christmas list.

I might will upload more and more items, as soon as something coming to my mind.

Thanks!

My name is Christy 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.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has more ideas and is update often  http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/   (http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/) .

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

:::::SEWN:::::

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not a game changer!) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

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

GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church. (thanks Lo{ve}!)

KitchenAid mixer cover for my SIL who has a green kitchen (so would rather it just have green accents maybe, not all green).  It doesn't have to be as intricate as the link, there are tons of different designs online
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

A large purse insert organizer (or the pattern and I will make it!) in neutral colors for my cousin.   http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Suzi_Purse_Insert_More/299/c50

4 tree trunk placemats (I will personalize)  LOVE THESE just like they are http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367784/

My young nieces love the movie Camp Rock so anything themed to that would freak them out (they are seriously so easy to please, love it!)....character dolls (fabric or painted), totes/pouches, anything.

Baby Girls: head bands, ruffle bloomers, onesie dresses, fabric shoes, anything girly.  By Christmas one will be 4 months (***allergies in that household***) and the other will be almost a year old.

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games  (Mario, skylanders, kerbey, etc)

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

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

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!  I don't know the kind of work that goes into glass work so hopefully they aren't crazy wishes!

Oh Em Gee...a recycled crochet bag made out of 30 plastic grocery bags http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773696492/ (I would take any amount of these in any grocery bag colors)

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

Mawmaw: She's an adorable, active,  social lil wino lol. She's in a group called the Ya-Ya's that travel and eat together a lot so I would LOVE anything you can come up with that incorporates any of that.  

ANYTHING Grumpy Cat: mug rug, pouch, hoopla, sculpture, art doll, anything!   Would love love love a grumpy cat shaped clay bowl (maybe a deep candy dish size for holding little trinkets). I have some animal shaped bowls on pinterest for inspiration, but it doesn't have to be perfect, I love imperfections so don't stress!

Any kind of cute animal scarves for my young nieces/nephews (thanks mama24boyz!)

Any my little pony character heads in a cute frame (crochet, fabric, paper mâché, whatever)

I claim Watsonc7 for felt/fabric chess set and something Camp Rock (4,0,2)

Hi.  I am Brenda from Southern California.  I just celebrated my 8th wedding anniversary last month.  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**

Hello! I live in San Francisco, CA. USA! I love to try and only give crafted gifts as presents and this swap helps so much with that! I usually love surprises but I would like to know what I'm being claimed for in this swap because I want to make a lot of these items too and don't want us both to be crafting the same awesomeness at the same time!

No major allergies to worry about except the smell of smoke/heavy perfume gives me and many of my family members migraines!

I claim cloud_berry for some handmade stamps

(Cloud, I'm worried that I wouldn't be able to do your parent's house justice right now but as I keep working on painting and drawing, I'd love to do a personal swap with you later if you're interested!)

1/0/0

Okay, so for those who don't know, I'm JoAnn from Texas.  There's me, my husband, our two puppies, four parents, 9 siblings (including spouses), 8 biological nieces and nephews, and 4 friends who are like family and the honorary 4 nieces and nephews that come with them!  So yeah, there's plenty to craft for.  We also have a lot of birthdays around the holidays as well.

Minor allergies to smoke but not a big deal unless it's an in-your-face or all-day item.

I've been trying to figure out the best way to structure this list so I'm not sure if I've hit on it - let me know if it doesn't make sense!  I am VERY open to interpretations of items - they do not need to be duplicates (unless it's something very specific and those should be marked).  I am VERY open to different mediums - for almost everything, I don't care if it's stenciled/cross-stiched/embroidered/whatever or if something is knit or crocheted - that kind of thing.  Whatever works for you works for me =) 

Lastly, I am VERY open to your ideas as well! 

I do have a Pinterest specific to gifts at http://pinterest.com/j4192/boards/  The ONLY board I am NOT open to is the one that says 'For me to make' - these are gift ideas I will tackle on my own at some point.  Everything else is totally fair game.  Many things are listed under one person but would be appropriate for more than one person - I will indicate when this is the case (totally understanding that you don't need to claim more than one).

Things in italics are my top 1-2 picks for each person on my list.  These are ideal - do not hesitate AT ALL to claim something else!!

I claim rockmygypsysoul for duct tape wallet and wall art (quote of either weird or wrongness on your pinterest)

4/1/1

Hello everyone!! My name is Laura and I’m from a small farm in Pennsylvania. I’m a long-term substitute teacher teaching cooking classes, and on other days I’m a curious crafter and the family chef. I’m 23 and still live at home with my large family. My other hobbies include extreme outdoor activities, gardening, and spending time with my boyfriend. My list is broken down by craft type, and these are items for my immediate family, coworkers, and best friends!

**No allergies!**
Bold items are most wanted

SEWN

- Elastic-backed headbands 1”-1.5” wide (any solid or patterned fabric, not yellow/orange/red)
-A full apron, not pink please. Style ideas on my pinterest.
-Small car “trash bag” out of cute striped/polka dotted/or solid color fabric Thanks Watsconc7!
-Solid color maxi skirt (will send you measurements if claimed)

 
EMBROIDERED

-Hoopla! Themes: nature, quotes, corgis, owls, foxes, book nerd, Hunger Games, LotR, Rosie the Riveter, stars, or cooking-inspired. See my pinterest for other ideas.

 
YARN

-Felt food for the baby cousins. There are three boys ages 4 and under, so anything will do! Thanks crazyda79!

-Small ami figure for the baby cousins. Anything boyish and child-safe!
-Crocheted/knitted earwarmer headbands (solid color in neutrals, dusty rose, turquoise, or dark green) (set of 3)
-Cowl infinity scarf like this http://pinterest.com/pin/4574037095219660/ (http://pinterest.com/pin/4574037095219660/)

-Mosaic coasters, any color/pattern/design (set of 4, please)
- Christmas tree ornaments! Those can go to many different people! (any medium) (specifically one American flag themed)
-1 dozen chocolate covered oreos (I can give these early if you send them!)
-1 or 2 dozen oreo truffles (I can give these early, too!)
-2 doz homemade peanut butter cups (see pinterest for recipe!)

Hand carved stamps -- A corgi, "Yay!", my initials LM, and/or woodland themed stamps. Thanks rockmygypsysoul!
NEWA bullet casing keychain for my boyfriend.
NEWA few initial keychains: L, G, S, S, K, S, ... I have a lot of friends whose name starts with S.
NEW A KitchenAid mixer cover for my mom. Her kitchen theme is chickens/farm animals by theme or tangerine/cream/white by color. Either would work.

I claim Cloud_berry for hot process soaps.

6/3/3

My name is Melody and I am in South Carolina. I live with my husband our 2 daughers ages 6 and 14. We do have 2 dogs and 2 cats. They do not come in the craft room. We are a non smoking home. While we are not allergic to smoke, my daughter is bothered somewhat by the smell so I would prefer not to receive from a smoking household.

Biggest wishes are in red.   

For my youngest daughter
She has talked about this that she saw in a toy store for a year  http://www.squishable.com/pc/massive_squish_owl_24/squishable_massive/?gclid=CKGh4P2MmroCFYdQ7AodCHEA0A I can't make myself pay that much for a bean bag chair. I would love to give her a bean bag chair with a big owl face on it though. I could stuff it myself. Doesn't have to look like the picture, and of course doesn't have to be made out of that fur either.

She loves mermaids, so maybe some kind of doll... I love these..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664308097/ and especially http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664302357/

Dresses are always a hit. These are especially cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664378862/

Hairbows are always good.  These are cute, but anything girly really (not really into pastel baby colors)..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664392283/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664360202/ These are just ideas, any little bows especially with dolls or animals would be great stocking stuffers.

Apron she loves to cook
 http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469052/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/547187423446498203/

Chef hat would be cute too.

Elf doll http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665005723/

Little fabric house with animals http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469057/

Tshirt ruffle dress, maybe with a long sleeve tshirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664526929/

Snowball surprise http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664443641/

Elf slippers. Maybe more of a Christmas red with some cream? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/542402348841574923/

Peg people pets (mostly cats and dogs) and/or some peg people furniture or accessories (rugs, dog beds, etc)   My daughter wants a peg pet rescue of sorts. I am going to try to work on that so anything to go with that would be great.

Travel pillow that will go on the seat belt :  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666753187/

Kimono shoes: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741699/

Felt food. She has breakfast foods but any other would be good. Really like these
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787607/ and
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787608/ or hot dogs, sandwiches, anything really!

Crochet jacket thing..I love this!  
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666795754/

Crocheted red cape with hood.

She loves stuffed animals, and would love one or two of these little mice http://sewingstars.com/mousepattern.htm

Barbie clothes, any and all. She is getting barbies for the first time this year and is already talking about being able to change their clothes.

Veterinarian lab coat and/or kit http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666903766/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666903771/

Oldest daughter:
Sloth hoop for her wall (doesn't have to be this one)http://www.pinterest.com/pin/202873158184870734/

Ice cream phone or ipod case (she has a phone and an ipod) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/

Walking dead..she loves Glen and especially Daryl (who doesn't) so something like this maybe?  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522026/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522050/ She's not picky. She will love anything with either of them on it.

She also loves Lord of the Rings, especially the cute guy that played on  Hidalgo (I can't remember his name). Anything Lord of the rings is good.

She also loves the SF 49ers and Kirko bangz. I think she would like some pins to pin on her bookbag etc. with either of those.

She has a smash book too, so likes things for it.

Fused glass night lights. Would love these for both daughters! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741648/ Don't have to be just like this. Any little cute animal would work.

Horse all purpose saddle pad. She loves pink leopard print http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666716215/

Horse bridle tag and maybe a dog tag for her dog. Something like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/77562141/personalized-horse-bridle-tag-big-brass.

Dinosaur wall plaques. I have seen ones I liked more than this but I can't find the links. Something like this though, in fun colors. I would want the dino to be a different color than the plaque so it would stand out better http://www.pinterest.com/pin/113856696802465553/

Wrapped ear buds! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666773596/

Shrinky dink dino necklace!!  A Parasaurolophus would be ideal, but t rex is awesome too!  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769354/

Ed, Ed, Eddy plank. Maybe a pillow? Or a necklace? Anything with the plank on it would be fun.

She is redecorating her room in black, white, and hot pink. Any pillows to go along with that would be fantastic. You don't have to stuff them, I can do that. Anything else that would go in a teen's room would be great really.

Dream catcher. I love this one! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666894667/

Crochet taxidermy. This is too cute!
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666897815/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666912130/

Ceramic or wooden sushi tray/plate/sauce dish. Anything she could use to put her sushi in. She loves the stuff and it would be cool if she had something cool to eat it out of. http://www.etsy.com/listing/106200351/two-dish-sushi-set-in-slate-blue-made-to?ref=sr_gallery_7&ga_search_query=sushi&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=handmade

My husband:
He's hard to craft for. He does like to hunt though and had this cowl like thing that he used to wear until it finally fell apart. Basically it was a knitted tube he slipped over his head. It would need to be pretty soft, thick and warm, and simple. Maybe camo colors or browns, greens. Just nothing that would stand out. He will be wearing it hunting.

would also like maybe some body wash, shampoo, shaving soap
 in woodsy scents.
 
He would like a simple leather wallet.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

Walking dead mug, or just a zombie mug would be fine.

My Mom:
Another one that is hard but maybe some home made greeting cards. She is always sending cards to everyone for everything. These are some of the types I think she would like..just ideas.. not very picky but she doesn't like anything too silly.
Casserole carrier http://www.pinterest.com/pin/66287425736581335/ or something like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/76842737365167411/

I claim Momof2! for something Walking Dead and a chef's hat (5,0,2)

Hi.  I am Brenda from Southern California.  I just celebrated my 8th wedding anniversary last month.  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**

My name is Christy 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.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

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

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

:::::SEWN:::::

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not a game changer!) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

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

GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church. (thanks Lo{ve}!)

(4) car trash bags with vinyl insert
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=352363.0#axzz2e5GOLdhn (thanks DiscoQueenHighness!  I'll totally take more)

(unlimited) Fabric paper towels preferably in half size, but I'll totally take full sized sheets. Bonus for using three snaps a side and including the center snap roll --I've seen it on other tutorials, it holds the towels in the middle http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395335/

KitchenAid mixer cover for my SIL who has a green kitchen (so would rather it just have green accents maybe, not all green).  It doesn't have to be as intricate as the link, there are tons of different designs online
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

A large purse insert organizer (or the pattern and I will make it!) in neutral colors for my cousin.   http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Suzi_Purse_Insert_More/299/c50

4 tree trunk placemats (I will personalize)  LOVE THESE just like they are http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367784/

My 2 nieces (7 and 6) love the movie Camp Rock so anything themed to that would freak them out (they are seriously so easy to please, love it!)....character dolls (fabric or painted), totes/pouches, anything.

Baby Girls: head bands, ruffle bloomers, onesie dresses, fabric shoes, anything girly.  By Christmas one will be 4 months (***allergies in that household***) and the other will be almost a year old.

super cute fox scarf (doesn't have to be exact, but rusty fox colors would be great) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395069/

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games  (Mario, skylanders, kerbey, etc)

Felt/fabric chess set, anything but pink (if you don't have chess pieces, I would love checkers pieces made out of felt or something )  for nephew     http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773359817/ (thanks crazyda79!)

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

Lunch money cuffs (4 boys, 4 girls -- 7-8" from end to end)
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773436979/

I would love quiet book pages---a standard sized sheet of felt with any quiet book activity on it...ill take as many as I can get.  I will bind them myself after I have collected enough activities to make a book.

:::::YARNIES:::::

knitted minecraft hat,  the tutorial is a perfect size 8

Crochet hoodie in this neutral color for an adult and/or child http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773397356/

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

My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse (small 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

Etched wine glasses for my Mawmaw, she loves her wine! Something funny like her favorite saying "big girl at night, big girl in the morning" http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395164/

wooden sign like this (I can assemble it myself to help with shipping) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396388/

wood burned utensils,  ANY design  http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395014/

Hello Kitty duct tape bags, whatever size.  2 of them a little different from each other if possible (maybe one red and one pink bow? Or their initial in the back) so they know whose is whose http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773556519/

A car wall display similar to this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773539837/

I claim Watsonc7 for a crochet hoodie for adult and child

(6,3,0)

Hi!  I’m Melanie from Ontario, Canada. I’m a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  I’m sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

For everyone -
- I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course   http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/
- These would be great for anyone on my list too http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505455/
- As would these snowman chocolates http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505443/
- Heres another thing that would work for so many people. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509667971/

Mom – OK, my Mom is hard!!  Maybe not, but she is for me.  She has a unique style I think.  She loves her hot tub and being outside.  She likes wine.  She has little iguanas hanging around (ceramic, not real) and she likes bold colours.
- I would LOVE if someone could knit her these socks http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lizard-socks-2
- My Moms a machine shop teacher in high school.  I think she would LOVE some sort of steampunk ornament.  
- My Mom would LOVE this windchime made of old wine bottles.  Could be any colour. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510547042/
- These mason jars would be perfect for her deck at night! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510408563/
- This would be PERFECT!!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513369661/
- love love this for her!!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5559199513598292/

Dad – My Dad is another one who is pretty difficult.  Hes originally from Manchester England and loves Manchester soccer team.  I really don’t have any ideas for him.
- Manchester United coasters

Max - Brother – Max and Nat just had a baby boy!!!  As of today he is a whole 5 days old!!  Max also LOVES Ace Ventura and Scarface.
- Something to do with Daddy would be amazingly awesome!
- This Jack Daniels soap bottle would be great for his mancave http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513035150/

Natalie – SIL – Nat loves dancing and baking.  She has her own dance studio where she teaches kids.  She loves turtles.  She likes nautical themed things.  Shes a brand new wonderful Mommy!!
- A business card holder
- She does yoga, these socks or some similar would be perfect! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559563/
- I think Nat would like these too, I like that they look like long legwarmers but they really only peek out the top of your boot so they don't have to be as long as these ones and go all the way to your ankle... http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559566/

I claim mama24boyz for a baby toy and a Hello Kitty something! (2,1,0)

I'm Summer from Texas. I am mom to 3 amazing boys 13, 8, & 8. We live on a ranch outside of Houston that has been in my DH's family for over 150 years. We raise and breed cattle and my sons show cattle all over the state of Texas.

Like most moms today I try to do everything! I work at a local church as the Director of Children's ministry, sit on the twins elementary school PTO, volunteer in scouts, and run around like a chicken with my head cut off. I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing, jewelry making, and various other hobbies. Hobby Lobby is my favorite store - I have memorized the layout, and frequent it often :) I am a diehard LSU fan - we bleed purple & gold in our home, and when we are home on a Saturday in the fall, you can be guaranteed that college football will be on the TV!
